  1. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. The shipping lanes are sometimes very hot. Nice catch. You're right. IF the wind cooperates. That's a long run and a seaworthy boat is a must. Have surfed back from there on some nasty waves Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. When were the fish caught ? Been fishing east end since the late 70's and it's been my experience that the major salmon staging around Henderson doesn't occur till mid August Lake trout ( yuck) are always available if you care to target them Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. You have to fish where the fish are. This time of year it's the west end. They start migrating eastward in late July. Except for the wall in the shipping lanes ( long run) the Henderson area won't see numbers of salmon till mid August Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I have used the 7 foot 2 piece bwd ugly sticks for several years. Tried one 7 footer about 10 years ago. Now I own 6. Love the shorter rod. And they handle big kings just fine Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Still under water
  7. I have posted my recipe on this forum before , but here goes . I grill my lake trout on a cedar plank . When the fish turns flakey I remove from the grill and throw the laker away and eat the plank
  8. Welcome to NOAA. I always add a foot or two to their wave predictions spent a lot of mornings eating breakfast instead of fishing when they predict 1 to 3. And I agree with the post that fishing sucks when it's rough. Hard to maintain a course and the lures are acting all crazy at the ball. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Maybe it would make the lake trout edible Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. The only product that I have found that works against these things is Buggspray. You can find it on eBay and amazon. Be sure to order the biting fly formula. I have used it for several years Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I spent much time going back and forth with the DEC in Albany. I have an email from them stating that ANY baitfish preserved by brining can be used in NY waters. Their problem was with bait that was only preserved by freezing Which does not kill VHS virus Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Any fish that is brined doesn't have to be tested. Only if frozen only like Rhys Davis Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Can they be filleted to make bait strips ?
