  1. There are probably a few old timers that remember the original Rhys-Davis cut bait I am a rabid cut bait ( meat) fisherman. I found this article interesting, hope you do too. The introduction of VHS spelled the end of the RD herring strips in the US. Rhys would not change his method of preparation. RD has been bought by Delta-Gibbs and I find that no good comes from this merger No other cut bait made since can come near the quality of the RD strips. I mourn the passing of this product every year https://www.bcoutdoorsmagazine.com/herring-strip-the-forgotten-bait/ Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Picked that up off the spoonpullers web. Can’t vouch for it. Hard to get the old leaderboards I remember fishing the ESLO derby’s in the ‘80’s. Can’t remember any 40 lb fish entered. Heard lots of stories about 40 + back the. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  4. Same riggers I use his 16# torpedos much less blow back Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I bought my GLS22 in January of 2019 hadn’t been run in 8 years. Took the owners word it had been winterized. Took a BIG gamble But I bought it right. Could have parted it out and got my money back. Turned out to be a great buy. Took some TLC to get it up and running. But it’s been a great boat Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Agree 1000%. Pancake weights = tangles. They take on a life of their own in cross currents Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Great advice. I might add to be careful of “ actual cash value “ coverage. The insurance companies idea of what your boat is worth will be far different than yours. Get agreed value or replacement cost Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I’m in for 10 - 6 packs. &100.00 plus $30.00 shipping. Let me know when you’re ready to ship and I’ll make the payment arrangements. Thanks , Mark Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Just ordered my copy. Great winter day reading. I’m an old timer on Lake O and still learning Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. This fight might not be over The emperor Cuomo just set up a commission to determine where ( at the moment ) solar energy sites can be located , without the input or consent of townships the newest site is located between Watertown and Henderson. 2000 acres of solar panels in a residential area. The commission is titled “ Site commission for RENEWABLE energy locations “ I would guess that means wind too. I’ll get the article and post ASAP He just took the towns and county’s out of the equation. His statement was “ the state , not the towns , determine where renewable energy sites will be located Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Or taste nearly as good Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. I NEVER fish solo without my inflatable on. If you do happen to go overboard while trolling , the boat will just keep going at 2.5 mph. It’s not coming back for you. You’re on your own Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. That’s why I will never vote for Barclay. He closed that whole section of the Salmon River to all but paid fishing. You can’t even wade. He got the courts to rule that he owns the river bottom. He makes a fortune off of state owned property Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I wasn’t able to fish as often as I wanted , and as often as I usually do. But the times I made it out to my favorite haunts I found the fishing much slower than in past years. I usually was able to scrounge one or two. Had one skunk. How about the rest of you ? Was it me or was the fishing off this year ? I normally fish the East end of the lake from Mexico Pt to Henderson It appears the best fishing was west of Oz Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
