    Mexico PT Spring Brown Trout

    No long lines, use side planers in shallow water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. If we really want 40 pound salmon, then we should release 20 to 25 pound salmon early in the year when they would have a few months to increase their weight. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Large salmon require a balanced harvest of all sizes of stocked fish. I remember a photo of a 120 pound King Salmon in Ketchikan taken in 1912. Today too many salmon are returned to the lake for being undersized, catch and released practice, foolish conservation measures and increased stocking numbers. Emerald shiner numbers are not studied, just alewives.Smelt are not studied also and the total forage is unknown . Just returning small fish is shooting your self in the foot if larger salmon is your desired catch. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. The damn do gooders with damn limits have over stocked the lake and too many fish have too little food to grow larger. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. The Mississippi and Missouri Rivers flow to the Gulf of Mexico. The rain they have should not have much effect on the Great Lakes. Still Lakes Michigan, Huron, St. Clair and Erie are high today and that is coming to Lake Ontario. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Fair Haven Pier Trouble

    Barcelona Harbor on Lake Erie had a similar failure of its breakwater a couple years ago. A repair project and dredging was done by contractors for the Army Corps of Engineers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Fair Haven Pier Trouble

    A major cause of the damage is due to a record high lake level.

    Might be about time ....

    Steelheads are not “god”. They should not be worshiped. They should be harvested for food. With out a proper management scenario problems will arise. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Early launches opening this spring

    Launching at Fort Niagara in March there is a warm water outfall from the waste water plant just east of the Fort that has a lot of brown trout stacked up in front of it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Niagara bar spring fishing

    The Bar is not like Lake Ontario Fishing. It is warmer water Lake Erie water. Nutrient rich and oxygenated by the falls and power plants a higher metabolism rate is present resulting in a greater feed rate. The high planktons feed the bait brings fry and minnows that feed the salmon and trout populations keeping them nearby and in the flume that extends along the south shoreline past Wilson and Olcott.

    Weighted steel. Yay or nay

    One time while fishing the Niagara Bar dropoff where the bottom goes from 55 foot to over 200 foot, I played with my X16 paper graph. It showed good fish down to 100 foot and no fish deeper. Changing the frequency and pulse length showed a greater amount of fish from 100 to 200 foot down which we believed was devoid of fish. The problem is our Sonar machines are set up for popular fishing depths. Lake Ontario’s depths of 600 foot are under fished because our Sonar units are not set up for greater depths. With crystal clear water and bright blue bird skies the salmon and trout move to these greater depths to avoid the sun’s penetrating rays. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. This is similar to Red Salmon fishing on the Kenai and Russian rivers in Alaska. Combat fishing at its finest. The catch does not hurt the reproduction but improves things as an over escapement of salmon results in a poor production of healthy returns. The salmon and trout taken here are non native species that need to be regulated since their numbers result in poor forage results for future years,

    New Bill introduced in ny assembly

    They are chipping away at organized sportsmen here. “Not Fish” is dividing our numbers. Eventually the do gooders will take away your life style. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
