  1. I'd rather do reproductions anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. My best kings often come out of 65 degree water. [emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. They're only illegal if you get caught. [emoji12]
  4. It flipped two weeks ago and the fishing remained spectacular. Don't dwell on the past. It is what it is---this year IT is incredible!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. It started to. Cold water moved into the inside over night so almost everyone that fished this morning fished offshore. Fishing was very good! By midafternoon the bait had already moved back in and I'm sure the salmon were headed there as well. The big north wind tonight and tomorrow may tighten that inside up or possibly blow it apart. The offshore fishery is very good if there's nothing inside 180. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Imagine how much time is spent untangling fly hooks from net mesh. Imagine how many hooks get impaled into hands while trying to untangle a pissed off fish from a big bulky net. When I fished salmon in Lake Erie in the early 80's a net was only used for the occasional walleye or smallmouth. All cohos and kings were gaffed! Wake up NY!!

  7. All this silly discussion would be irrelevant if NYDEC would get rid of their stupid "no gaff" law!![emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Sometimes less is more. Salmon don't like to be crowded. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. They are bad. Hoping the big east blow today pushes enough cold water in to ruin their pesky little lives Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. The ONLY port with the most consistency in July is Pt Breeze. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. You guys are WAY overthinking this. Most meat rigs can be run at any speed that flies and spoons are run at. The exception would be big "okie" type flashers which generally require a slower trolling speed. E chips pulling meat can be run at the same speed you would pull them with flies. Spin doctors are the most forgiving of all and can be run at almost any speed. The secret with meat is the "roll". Figure that out and you'll find the "secret" to fishing meat.

  12. I wouldn't count on it. They've been stocking Atlantics for years and they have never "taken" and they never will. It's a foolish waste of funds on a fish that doesn't want to live here anyway and is ill equipped to deal with the kings, browns, lakers and steelhead.

  13. Here's a 20# Atlantic headed to a client in Florida. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Almost all "unpleasant" surprises are caused by not being aware of what's going on. Letting a long copper out on a turn. Free falling a diver. Allowing a fish to actually get into another line before moving it. Situational awareness solves most problems. Most. [emoji15][emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I've never had leadcore or copper become fouled by fleas. Maybe a little at the knot but that's it. It's one of the advantages of core and copper during flea season. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
