  1. As per the Press release yesterday the south shore of Lake Ontario is going to receive another 20% reduction in Chinook salmon for 2019... The reasoning behind this is certainly debatable. The DEC says there is still a lack of bait in the lake. I think those of us who spend large amounts of time on the lake can look at this reason and disagree. Look in the stomachs of these kings and you see large bait for the most part. They certainly are having no trouble seeking out the larger bait class. The fantastic fishing we had this year is directly related to a very large class of natural 2 yr olds. The 3yr old class is weak. This is showing in the tribs as I type. I thought it would be just an ok trib run and it is looking that way. Next year however it will be off the chart. After next years mature class I am not sure what the expectation will be. Other reasons they are giving that is total B.S. is the fishing was fantastic because the fish are starving...yea ok... It was fantastic because for a change we had competition. Kings are competitive. They want to eat the bait so there buddies cant. FACT As was stated by a senior Capt in our meeting last night the Steelhead is our number one predator on young of the year Alewife. DEC is considering more regs to protect the steelhead at the request of our Trib anglers. These regs will effect lake harvest. It is imperative you attend these meetings!!!! I can not stress it enough. It is time we tell the DEC enough is enough. Here are a list of public meetings that are mandatory if you own a boat on the south shore. Thursday, Oct. 4: 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Building, 4487 Lake Ave., Lockport, Niagara County. Tuesday, Oct. 9: 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Donald Schleiter Lodge and Pavillion, 199 East Manitou Rd. in Braddock Bay Park, Rochester, Monroe County. Wednesday, Oct. 10: 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Pulaski High School auditorium, 4624 Salina St., Pulaski, Oswego County. Please feel free to read what I wrote and if you have other opinions please feel free to discuss and keep it professional. Thank you for listening and I hope to see you at the upcoming meetings.

    oak vs sodus vs oswego?

    You sure about that? I hear the Black North can be touch and go on a Saturday night..
  3. Just so you know the system is not set up on the Great Lakes for this to work yet. I keep reading that lack of funds in the fed system have kept it from happening for us.

    Where are all the 20lb Steelhead we used to see

    Spot On Brian! More Steel killed in tribs then the lake. What the tribe guys wont ever understand is Steelhead is a by-catch in the lake. As long as there are Kings to catch the Steelhead will always be around for the tribs unless they kill it for themselves.
  5. Town Marina has cameras in place. Are you at that particular marina?

    From reading this thread I can see that one of you has been paying attention the other... you should book a couple extra trips..
  8. The guy repairing and making parts for the sub troll is making them. They are a little smaller but look good and function from what I hear. I don't have contact info but maybe someone else has it.

    What wire to run for dipseys

    Another vote for Blood Run. I have fished it with Kinks to get thru a trip and have not been let down. Best wire on the market period.
  10. Usually for the blow boaters... They can also be green and I have seen some in red.
  11. Dave, Donna would love this boat!! It would fit in your Barn too!

  13. Good Stuff! When I bought my boat on the Cape, my surveyor was also a local fishing capt Mostly Tuna. He had some great stories about the fleet and how the show came about. Said most of the guys are down to earth folk. He filled me in on what is real and what is not. That whole price for the fish at the dock hasn't been real in 20 years. Strictly for Drama. They don't know how much they made per fish for a few weeks and it hasn't been 20 dollars a pound in recent memory. He also told me some of the capts that quit the show got tired of reeling in concrete blocks for production B roll... LOL Either way it is entertaining like any other made for tv drama. And they do a great job at portraying Harbor Drama!!! Almost scary how well it matches other fishing communities!!
  14. Yes they have the pin in them just like the red OR's. They look and feel identical to me.
  15. Amish outfitters has there own version of the red offshore's. Half the price and identical. check them out.
