  3. Unless the cheater spoon is fixed it will continue to slide down your main line until it reaches the main line release. I pop my main out of the release and let it float up without reeling. Generally misses the free slide cheater. I have also had hits as main is rising in the water column Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I hope not 12# pancake weights. They take on a life of their own in currents. I had a pair of 13# pancakes. Sat in my cellar for years finally sold them hope the new owner knows lots of swear words Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. More input. Lol. What weights are you running on your riggers. Wire dipseys? Do you tangle only on a single course or any course Speed ? Boat handling is a big factor in preventing tangles. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  16. Biggest problem I’ve found is people that back onto the ramp and THEN start getting boat ready to launch. Pull to the side , ready your vessel and THEN get in line to launch Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  18. Back in the 50’s and 60’s ( before the introduction of the salmonids) the beaches around our camp on Sandy Pond were ankle deep in dead alewives we would rake them into piles and burn them. I can still smell them. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  24. Emperor Cuomo already took the towns and villages out of the equation by establishing the committee to determine where solar and wind farms will be located. His statement , and I quote “ then state , not the townships , will determine where sustainable energy will be located “. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  25. Whichever app you use , add a foot to the predicted height. If it’s calling for 1-3 , figure 2-4. Been fishing Lake O for a lot of years and have yet to find a dependable forecast. I’ve sat at the launch watching the 1-3 waves crashing over the break wall. What you see when you get to the lake , is what you get Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
