  1. I I fished Alaskan Waters from Ketchikan to The Kenai and Russian Rivers. Three years I fished Puget Sound from British Columbia to Olympia Washington. The salt water fishing methods are similar our Lake Ontario fishing practices. A plastic squid on a flasher worked well there. Salt water king fishing is best trolling for edible fish. Herring is predominately used for bait and it also takes halibut. The US Coast Guard is a good boat ride there.
  2. Due to poor Chinook Salmon Returns in the Yukon and Kenai Rivers sport fishing and commercial fishing has ended. You can expect tourist fishing on the Great Lakes waters to increase now. Warm Pacific waters due to global warming and over fishing by Pollack Trawlers are among the causes suspected.
  3. Most dead salmon feed the new hatch as the mountain streams are low in nutrients. On the Kenai/Russian River streams, wasted carcasses are required to be placed back in the streams as feed for the next hatch of eggs.
  4. Always troll with the wind on your stern to keep a steady course. The worst course is travelling straight into a strong wind. It sometimes is best to pick up all gear and travel upwind at high speed to return to your preferred waypoints.
  5. My brother took a sixty pound Chinook from thr Yehtna River a few years ago.
  6. We run three in line side planers on each side of the boat. Lead cores on all, dipsey divers on a 3 setting to get deeper or down riggers on the stern. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. A 120 pound chinook was taken from a fish trap near Tree Point, Ak at the turn of the last century. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Probably the fish was a six year old chinook that could have been determined. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. The DEC was effective in cutting back on stocking Chinooks along with natural reproduction numbers. The secret is in the forage base availability. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Some unknown Federal Agency is auctioning off underwater sites for windmill farms construction. The secret auctions happen without public knowledge, just keeping the public out of the comments so the auction money is in the banks first. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Wind mill farms off Germany and Denmark tie up areas of up to fifty square miles, not a 1500 foot circle area.
  12. The DEC always found an “Answer man” who could keep the public informed with their decisions and also put the “radicals” in their place. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Lakes Erie and Ontario are rivers with strong currents relative to surface winds. At Buffalo the lake surface will rise to plus nine foot but at Toledo ships will anchor off shore due to shallow conditions in the harbor. That is a tremendous volume of water moving distances of hundreds of miles. Offshore winds on the south shore will blow warm surface waters to Ontario and cold waters will upwell near the south shore. Fishing changes with water temperature changes. Surface winds make the lakes like rivers with current and water temperature changes. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Did this guy count the gobies?
  15. The Anchorage News Paper reports that salmon raised in Indiana are being sold in east coast stores. They mature in 18 months rather than 36 months naturally.
  16. California is putting Offshore Windmills in now. Their rationale is their electricity will make a separation of Hydrogen and Oxygen from water. The hydrogen will power tractor trailer powered Volvo engines made by the Chinese owned Volvo corporation. Their exhaust will be water vapor instead of CO2 an CO into the environment.
  17. Lead core line wastes a lot of fishing time reeling all them colors. Just a simple sinker snap locked or rubber banded to your line catches fish also. A sinker attached at 6 to 8 foot above your lure will allow you to net the fish quickly. Most important is the use of side planers where your sweeping area is spread away from your boat as it passes over the fish even in deep waters. The spooked fish move off to the side of your boat where your side planers have your lures.
  18. Just get your car and boat or trailer in line. Do not let anyone cut the line.
  19. Cattaraugus Creek State ramp at Irving ,NY. Close to walleye, bass , perch and catfish after July first when lake water temperatures rise above 65 degrees on the surface. Good now.
  20. Sunday afternoon my cell phone lost coverage. The big crowds on the beach area overloaded the cell tower. I was really out of my mind, this never happened before. After driving up to Route 5, my cell phone service returned. A vhf radio would still work . Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. Channel 16 must be monitored at all times for emergency and Coast Guard emergency relay messages. Your radio should have a scan feature to allow multiple frequencies to be monitored.
  22. Legally you are required to keep your VHF radio on at all times and monitor Channel 16. If something bad happens and you do nothing, those accident lawyers will put your bank accounts and possessions under a lawsuit that will take years to release the liens.
