  1. Hi all, the only way I am likely to catch walleye is trolling at night in 7-12 fow. When i have fished Conesus in the afternoon, I mark quite a few fish (that look good size) near the bottom in 25-40 fow. Are those likely walleye and if so, do any of you have success jigging for them? I have jigged lots of lake trout and other species and was thinking of trying some soft plastics and jigging for them. Any advice, info, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to PM me. thanks! andre
  2. i'm curious which is the better walleye lake. I live MUCH closer to Conesus and manage to get a few each year. I have never fished Otisco. thanks! andre
  3. I have seen TONS of bass fisherman targeting bass on Conesus before June. It must be allowed there. Do you know if it's legal to target bass on Hemlock pre-season if you immediately release them? thanks, andre
  4. Hi all, I want to cook more roasts bone-in, so i wanted to get a good hack saw blade. I need 12" blades and it sounds like 10 TPI is best. I read it's important that the blades NOT be painted (because the paint will come off when cutting the bone). I cannot find non-painted (ideally stainless steel) 12" blades with 7-10TPI. Do any of you know where i can get such blades. Other advise is also welcome. I can't spend too much on a fancy butcher saw. thanks, andre
  5. of course those are MAGNIFICANT LLs. But it's just very sad that the lakers and browns are doing so poorly (compared to 5-10 years ago) dre
  6. Granted, those are two extremely nice fish, but what has happened to the lake trout population there? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. i fish hemlock a lot and usually catch some. I've been out 3 times this spring and i've had ONE bite! dre
  8. i first saw that comic about 30 years ago and have never forgotten it. CLASSIC HILARITY!
  9. i know the midlake isn't frozen, but what about the launch at woodville?
  10. i'm hoping to get out Saturday. I'm guessing it's frozen over, but does anyone know for sure? thanks, dre
  11. Does anybody have a good sense of when they Spawn? Is there a good pre-Spawn bite? I have heard that they don’t bite well while spawning… Is that correct? Thanks, Andre Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. the Stingers are flying better now that i used teflon tape to keep them vertical many thanks! dre
  13. i am shooting 4" vanes. I will try using the teflon tape to get the stingers vertical. thanks!
  14. Hi all, I began bowhunting about 10 years ago and practiced with field points and hunted with grim reapers. I killed and retrieved about 15 deer with grim reapers but I also had several hit the shoulder bone and not penetrate. So 2 years ago I decided to switch to Muzzys. I would be completely dialed in with my field points but with the Muzzys i couldn't make a "kill shot" on my targets. People on this forum said i needed my bow tuned. So i took it to Traditions and he said he tuned it perfectly. I couldn't hunt last year due to a back injury and surgery. This year, after lots of research, i decided to switch to Stinger (single piece of metal, 2 cutting edges). I am again dialed in with field points but when i shoot the Stingers, not nearly as accurate. Is it important that the Stingers be completely vertical? because mine are not (due to the inserts, when they are tight they are at some different angle). Can anyone give me advice on this? thanks, andre
  15. Hey Bob, it sounds to me like you know what you're doing! I'm going to follow your advice! thanks! dre
  16. Thanks VERY MUCH for all of your advice! dre
  17. Thanks VERY MUCH for all of your advice! dre
  18. i often catch one or two eyes on Conesus trolling shallow at night. I have trolled many times during the day and never caught an eye. i often see nice marks near the bottom in 25-40fow. I think they might be eyes. I have jigged many bass and lake trout, so i want to give jigging for eyes a try. My understanding is that eye jigging is more subtle than lake trout jigging. What lures do you recommend for jigging? soft plastics? spoons? Any info will be greatly appreciated! thanks, andre
  19. HI all, i know this is the lake ontario forum but i am hoping to fish lake erie next week for the first time ever. My brother and his son will be visiting from Texas and neither have ever caught an eye. I have not been doing well on Conesus so far, so i want to make the trip to Erie. On conesus, i often catch eyes trolling lures like Bomber Long A's in 6-12 fow at night. I have tried trolling Conesus during the day deeper, but have not caught any eyes. Will similar tactics work on Erie = deeper in the daytime and shallower during the night? i don't want to drive too far, so are Buffalo and Niagara the two options for ports? thanks very much, andre
  20. ii saw them on the Rapala site but couldn't find where i could buy them
  21. I will definitely be buying the TD13s when they are available! on a different note: Justin, my experience is that walleye bite best when the water is 52-53 degrees. I have caught them in 50 but rarely in temps less than 50. I checked the temp at conesus yesterday and it was only 47 (at the state launch). I'm just trying to decide if it's worth it for me to head out (the late night fishing messes up my sleep). I LOVE nightfishing for eyes, but not if it's very unlikely they'll be biting. Thanks for your advice! andre
  22. I love seeing them spawn. Are they there in any numbers yet? (or have they already peaked and are heading back to the lake?) thanks, dre
  23. I am unfamiliar with bay rats. Where do you buy them? What size and colors are your favorites? Thank you, Andre Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
