  1. Or taste nearly as good Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. You hit another of my pet peeves Pancake weights. Years ago I bought 2 13 # pancakes trying to win the blowback battle. Suddenly , I’m getting terrible tangles. What gives ? Made the discovery that pancakes take on a life of their own in cross currents. I fished with them for a few trips and they gathered dust in my cellar for many years. I finally dumped , I mean sold them last year. Hope the new owner has a good vocabulary He’ll need it. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Went to 16# torpedoes from troutman87 and have never looked back. Got a couple of 15 # cannonballs I keep in case ( very rare ) I want to target oil cans on the bottom if they hang up , not so much crying involved [emoji13] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. It shows the distance from your ducer to any object in its cone . Bottom , fish and your weights Fish are not attached to your boat ( at least not yet, lol ). That’s why the show as inverted U’s or V’s. The sonar sees them as deeper ( further away ) as you move over them the apex of the U ( and true depth ) and again the sonar sees them as further away as you move past. The sonar is seeing your weights at a constant distance , hence the line. They are NOT at that depth. They are at that DISTANCE from the ducer. Brand of sonar or quality of ducer is immaterial. They all work the same way. Takes a little bit of thought to get your head around it. But it’s the way it is Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Here’s another one and a side note. The depth ( distance finder ) finder is not showing you the true depth of your weight or bait. It’s showing the distance from the transducer. Your distance finder shows your weight at 130 ft. You are actually fishing much shallower due to blow back. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/E0OZqdUtA3dDjaF4ASo1IIRJRqmHNvpKYbi3yXTkjqm0ZF-XGLMAnNLTOzhbyJFHfSvimnWkRpdZRIlRUZD0j_gBuiGej1P_6toihvSfjcpmgH9JEtj2Bdjh65g- Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Wrong. There are several charts for angle versus depth with amount of cable out. You can also figure it yourself Measure the angle of your cable and how deep you want to fish. The equation will tell you how much cable you need out to reach that depth https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRFi2e-KTz7wyU19YvAWW_MxXvulBJUWm9xAg&s Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Apparently it’s only a requirement if the marine radio is turned on . If you choose to turn it off the requirement doesn’t count. Lol. The purpose of the FCC regulation was to relieve congestion on VHF channel 16, the distress, safety and calling frequency. FCC regulations require boaters having VHF radios to maintain a watch on either VHF channel 9 or channel 16, whenever the radio is turned on and not communicating with another station.

  11. If you have a marine radio aboard , you are required by law , to maintain a watch on channel 16 at all times Fishing or not
  12. Oswego yesterday Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Might be time to pull lines and head in. Lol🤪 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. I have mag 10 Stx. Yes they are fast. But my auto stop works smoothly. The weight stops at the surface with no snap or jerk Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Save your money. Snubbers aren’t needed if you set your releases so that the weight stays in the water at all times Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
