  1. I have fished out of Cape Vincent If you run out by the shipping Chanel by Charity Shoal there is a deep crater. I have caught loads of Lakers there. Be careful of the border. You’re very close there and the Canadians are not being nice about crossing to their waters. If you want salmon you’ll have to run toward Galoo and beyond Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Photos of the channel yesterday after the heavy rain The currents were very strong - it moved a lot of sand and widened the entrance which was getting very narrow.. it is passable but still not marked The inlet is constantly changing day to day. Winds and storms bring sand or take sand The channel is not marked by buoys as in past years. I doubt that any boat over 20’ can safely navigate this channel. The plus side is that it’s mostly sand. One Rock pile to starboard as you leave the pond. You may lose some paint on prop and skeg I’ve had to get out and push a few times in previous years. The water is VERY low this year. Use caution. The pond is a great place , but the inlet has some serious problems Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Wrong. Until the restrictions are repealed border crossings are illegal by any means. And they are watching Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  5. I did that and found out the hard way to keep it away from your telescoping buttons. Had to spray carb cleaner in the holes to get them to work again Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Ok to use if you’re a horse or a cow. Not for use in humans. Powerful carcinogen. Read the label Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. There are serious rocks to the left of the break wall channel. ( when coming in , or to starboard going out ) They are usually marked with buoys. I haven’t launched at Mexico yet this year so I don’t know if the buoys are in or not. I DO know you don’t want to get into those rocks. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. We would see that first hand at our camp on Sandy pond. We had the pond in the back and the lake in the front. Go swimming in the evening on the lake side. Water like bath water Get up the next morning and jump in for an eye opener. And it definitely was an eye opener. Went from 70’s to low 50’s. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I saw you at the launch. No problems getting out the channel. My sonar said 2.5 just before the Marina. Landed one 22 #. 165 ft of water down 60. Cut bait. Hooked 2 more but they got off. Tough solo when it’s kicking up Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Did the insurance company take your title when they paid your claim ? If not , you should still have the original title in your name Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  15. Finally done I decided to fix things that weren’t broke. At least when I started. When will I learn ? New gimbal bearing , new u-joints , all new bellows , decided to replace lower shift cable , bought cheap on-line Chinese cable kit , my bad , way too much drag , couldn’t adjust to make shift interrupt work, ordered OEM , change cable ,AGAIN. Now works as advertised took to Magee Canvas for new top and side curtains Just got done outfitting with gear. Hope to get out this week. Looks like it’s starting to turn on.

  19. Watching your weights and baits on your sonar can be misleading. The fish on your screen are at the depths on your screen ( usually ) if they are directly under your boat. Your weights and baits are NOT at the depth on your screen. They are at that DISTANCE from your transducer. Fish the marks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  20. The dredging was halted by the DEC due to the presence of the piping plover. An endangered species. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  22. From the Sandy pond channel maintenance association: NY Marine Services have pulled all the buoys in the channel until a permanent solution can be found we will not be able to get a channel marked even if we dredge a full channel at the required 4’. We need people to share this information and to contact elected officials if this makes you angry or upset. SPCMA has always tried to maintain a channel by themselves and the help of the Town of Sandy Creek - At this time State and Federal funding is desperately needed!!! Future dredging could place sand on the North and South alternating … Dredge before April 1 st and in the Fall … get as much sand out of the channel and pond as we can. Place sand on private lands to the North and South. This ultimately will restore the barrier beach that protects the pond. We will be getting a form letter out for people to send. The 4 th of July is fast approaching and we need people to know there are no markers out there except for the rocks pile on the lakeside. Boat safely and have have a great weekend. Be careful using the inlet very shallow and now unmarked by buoys Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. There are many ramps where power loading is prohibited. It drives the bass crowd crazy Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
