  1. Just wondering how everyone felt about this past season on Lake O. 
    I didn’t get out as many times as in past years   The trips I made were only fair for catch rate and size for Chinook . I caught fish on nearly every trip , but it was much slower than I’ve ever experienced   Didn’t get to fish the spring BT fishery , but I heard it was nearly non existent. 

  2. I am curious how much over the years derby entries have moved up or down .I am just getting back into fishing Ontario after long absence (1990).
    Back then grand prize was 19’ grady and f-150 brown trout was aluminum boat , boats were outfitted completely down to coolers.And cash bash entry would pay taxes if you were lucky enough to win .I know fishery always faces challenges but it has to be more than that .I remember east end Mexico launch would have have 75-100 boats launch in am , when in port Ontario boat parade in dark to get out early camera flashing glow lures up before getting to open lake,this year a handful of boats at 7am! .Same in spring when in Olcott met guys from all over the country .Even driving to and from lake to home there would be tons of boats on highway set up to fish Ontario this year I saw maybe 3 !
    Is it prize money , economy or interest by anglers ,freakin covid ?
      Myself I spent a year getting a used new to me boat set up to finally get back in the game bc I have had some of the best times in my life fishing up there.It was sad to see so many empty motel parking lots and businesses for sale in Pulaski this year . I was hoping local residents could shed some light on this for me.I know it is complicated and many factors involved but I am blown away with the difference from when I used to vacation up there .
    Thankyou Glenn

    I remember those days too ! The original ESLO derby and the early days of the LOC Trucks and boats backed up to 104B on Lakeview Rd. Had a real person at the shack to launch ($5.00) From our cottage on Sandy pond you could look out over the lake and see hundreds of navigation lights on boats way before sunrise I’m afraid those days are gone forever. I lost my LOC fishing partner a couple of years ago and it’s hard to get anyone to join ( too early , too rough etc. ) the stocking reductions haven’t helped the fishery. I’ve been out as many times as possible this year , caught fish on (almost ) every trip , buts it’s nowhere near what it was

  4. 25 Years on Lake Ontario in Oswego I feel this was the worst weather year ever wind, waves, rain thunderstorms and as far as the salmon not great by far. I got some salmon but not like past years what do you guys think.

    I totally agree. The wind was non stop 🛑. I had zero days when it wasn’t at least 3 footers.

  5. Tom I would also try to find out (if it’s worth it) to see where the corrosion is coming from? Galvonic or some electrolysis from stray current. Something is eating the heck out of it from those pics. Not sure if you keep it in the water or you keep it on your trailer. You could put a meter on your negative side of your battery and touch your aluminum in different areas with the positive lead to see if you have any stray current. Start turning on your equipment one at a time to see if you see volts. Lights, depth finder, bilge etc.

    It looks like corrosion from contact with pressure treated lumber. Are your bunks pt? How about stringers ? You CAN’T use pressure treated in contact with aluminum. It eats it just like in your pics

  6. Thanks these are manuals. So it would be frames

    I had cannon uni troll hp’s for years. I ran 15 lb just before I moved to electric. Cranking 15 # weights from down 100 ft is a chore. You don’t want any false releases for sure.

  8. Emperor Cuomo resigned Regardless of party affiliation folks should be relieved

    I’m happy as a pig in sh** that he is going. I didn’t like or vote for his father either. But this goes way deeper than any of us will ever know. He was grooming himself for the 2028 presidential nomination ( maybe the 2024 ). Somebody didn’t want that to happen. Political assassination I’m sure that the allegations are all true and probably many more At any rate bye , Andy

  9. Was a lot rougher than they predicted. Only vehicle in the parking lot at 6 AM I motored out to 160 fow ( slowly). I was solo so I had to go with the seas to set up. Waves coming from SW AND SE. very confused seas I had one knock off over 150 down 85. Temp was 48. Pulled the plug at 10. To rough for solo fishing Still only vehicle in the lot when I got in

  11. What do you guys think conditions will be like. We planned on coming sunday afternoon and fishing until tuesday. Sundays forecast has been changing everytime I look at it and as of now dont look fishable.
     
    Monday looks like its fishable later in the mornin but assuming there is going to be left over waves and prolly scattered fish and temperature.
     
    So that basically leaves Tuesday that looks good weather. We would be able to fish until a little after lunch and head home.
     
    I'm bringing 2 younger boys and it's about 4.5 hours for us to make. Thanks in advanced.

    What you see is what you get. Forecasts are hit and miss. Just go and if it’s a blow off. Find something else to do

  12. Thanks. We just came in for lunch. Morning was rainy and windy. Went over towards Bradocks. Lost a big king in 130 put 140 on wire dipsey. Broke the wire line. Got one small brown in 65FOW on wonderbread glow and dispey. Going to try heading in front of IBay this afternoon in 150 to 180. Will let you know. 

    Doesn’t look like anyone is going out Friday and Saturday. Ruff ruff

    Even in the lake , when they turn dark and start to Kype , the eating quality goes down the tubes. Back in the lake they go

  14. oh yay, a trump discussion on my fishing report website. 
     
    lets discuss vaccines next, and UFO's who I'm pretty sure are responsible for making all the brown trout disappear this spring and turned them all into fat ugly lakers.

    Your website???

  15. politics from yanks. 
     
    some reflection over your last 8 years is in order. 

    45 threw NAFTA under the bus and made it a level playing field. And the canucks didn’t like it. And that’s all I have to say. I’m with Whaler. I’ll pass
