  1. Paint them over with white and go from there with the colors you want
  2. I thought the captians bought donuts for the observers
  3. I believe the Ontario biologist will be looking at and counting the pyloric caeca at the end of the stomach. During the early days of the ESLO derby the grand prize was limited to chinook salmon. A hybrid coho chinook was caught and was a possible winning fish. They brought the fish in to DEC where I was working. DEC did not want to get involved in a private contest but we did let them use our reference books to let them make a determination. I can't remember numbers but chinooks have a high number of pyloric caeca and cohos have much fewer number. The fish had a number about midway between and they determined it to be a hybrid. With that said both that fish and the one recently caught are true monsters. you never know what you're going to catch in Lake Ontario.
  4. Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence
  5. Too much easterly wind. Rough water. Lake flipping too much. Unstable conditions. Different fishing every couple days. we need a prelonged period of westerlies to stabilize the water and better catches
  6. Man thinks he is in control but forgets mother nature bats last
  7. So was the Oak and Olcott. At the black north ramp (state ramp was not built yet) vehicles with boats were back up waiting to launch all the way back into the exit ramp on the parkway. at olcott the vehicles were back up on Jackson st onto rt 18 and onto the bridge over 18 mile cr
  8. Lake Ontario water levels usually peak around Memorial Day then drops. Look at JD post chart. Aug and Sept water levels are lower than levels this time of year. LO trib water volumes have little effect on lake levels. LO water levels are primarily controlled by the locks on the St Lawrence. After the last few years super high water you have no chance to slow the water releases, Bottom line late summer will be worse
  9. DEC has been trying for decades with Federal $ and fish to get these reestablished in LO along with lakers. Returns have been very skimpy to say the least. it is thought that most run out to the Atlantic Ocean and never return. My feelings are save the money and add numbers to pacific salmonids and BT
  10. Just talked to R8 Fish Manager. They clarified original closures of business' at boat launches. Since DEC sites don't charge for use on their launches they originally said they would stay open. Today they changed their minds and said they are closed. As for Sandy Creek as soon as the Town of Hamlin can lock the gate it will be closed
  11. I been looking at the fishing reports. It has a lot of pictures of kids holding fish. They all have big smiles. With schools closed and sports and other entertainment stuff closed lets hope there is more family bonding. We need it. Icing on the cake would be that with more free time on our hands that it gives us time or more time to read. A good starter would be the Holy Bible.
