    Sewage spill

    Every sewage district in New York State has sewage overflows. The governor stated we can not afford rainfall treatment every where. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Sodus Point

    Cold nights cool off all streams. Entering the lake, this colder water flows to the deep while warm surface stays warm. Look on the bottom at 100 to 120 foot of water where staging Kings are waiting to enter the stream. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. The Chicago Tribune has a story on The Lake Superior Water Control Board dumping excess water into the Lake Michigan And Huron Basins. Something is out of control and eventually Lake Ontario is going to get the brunt of this mismanagement. Search it out now.

    boat rail system

    The state of New York collects millions of dollars in fees from boaters. Registration fees from boats, trailers, gasoline taxes, sales taxes, launch fees, and other deals. It disappears in the Black Hole called Albany . You must contact your Governor, State Senator and Assembly Man. Also your County Supervisors and town leaders to get the ball rolling. Nothing but our money disappears for the past fifty years. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Great Lakes Water Levels

    Lake Erie water level changes suddenly to air pressures, wind direction changes , evaporation rates and inflow from dozens of rivers and creeks. Buffalo Harbor has seen changes of nine foot at times like high winds. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Dipsey diver fishing for salmon

    30 pound leaders are usually enough to hold a large king. 20 pound leaders break off with big fish. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Thru hull leak?

    My old Starcraft leaked. I filled the hull with water one spring. 268 rivets were replaced. Old rivets will leak from the pounding they get. Welded aluminum boats are safer. After replacing all the rivets the transom brace cracked ang the engine was flopping under way so I gave up and scrapped that boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Downrigger releases

    I use red rubber bands on my cannon ball releases. They always release. Also I use red rubber bands on side planer releases. A gain they break or really stretch out with small fish. I also use red rubber bands on inline sinker weights. Easy to install any where in front of the lure and just rip the sinkers off when it reaches the pole.

  13. The Central Alaskan king salmon fishery has been closed down due to low returns to streams and salt water areas. We are fortunate here on Lake Ontario to have them available and tourism may see an unanticipated increase. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    3 or 4 Downriggers

    2 riggers, 2 dipseys and 2 sideplanersw with leadcore seem to cover a lot of territory.
  15. In Alaska the limit on “King” salmon is one per person per day. Any fish taken into the boat is your limit and you are finished fishing for the day. You may release fish in the net that stay in the water and continue fishing. This insures unnecessary killing of fish. A thirty pound salmon is plenty of fish to feed your family for a year .

  16. I was caught up in a PWT contest on Lake Erie one year that was run by outsiders who never fished the area. By 9:15AM the winds picked up to 45 mph. It took over an hour at five mph to return to Dunkirk. The waves were peaking over ten foot high and the boat was close to vertical many times. One bass type boat rolled over as a 400 pound angler upset the boat. Quite a few did not get the cancellation call over their radio and had a tougher time getting in. When you enter these contests you have to decide your self to go out. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Northern King Lures are back .

    What boat should I buy

    Describe “Lifetime “. The lifetime of an elephant or an ant. This is just salesman BS. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. Separate prizes for a one man boat , two man boat, three man boat, four man boat would attract more entrants. Competing against a boat fishing eighteen lines is unfair to a smaller boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    What are these fish

    There is also a hybrid stripe bass/white bass. They are sterile and a strong fighting fish as all of its reproductive energy is added to more muscles. Same deal as a mule. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Lake Sturgeon Restoration

    It should be noted that the cobble rocks were installed on the river bank to create the spawning grounds for the sturgeon by the Wisconsin Agency.
