  1. Maybe that will be a learning experience on how to back a trailer. I’ve watched some really entertaining trailer backing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. 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
  3. Makes Jose Biden’s gas [emoji618]️ worth more. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Wouldn’t that make a great turkey ( cormorant) shoot ?? Cash prize for the most birds splashed Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I bought one of these kits years ago. I’ve carried it on the boat since haven’t needed it ( knock wood ) but it’s there if I do Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Don’t fish for the oil cans Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. And just a reminder. This has been mentioned earlier in this thread. When the Gallo wind farm was still a viable plan. The launch at Henderson was to be used solely for the work boats building the wind farm. Off limits to recreational boaters Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. I installed the boom mat this weekend. Worked perfectly the width was right on for my doghouse (32”) had enough to do top, front and sides Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I had the same idea. I bought this over the winter and am going to install this week. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/dei-050510 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Over the winter I decided to do preventive maintenance on the “ Bonum Vitae “. I ordered a gimbal service kit for my Alpha 1 I had this week off so I got to work. Replaced gimbal bearing , all bellows , u-joints etc. what a pain in the azz. It’s done and I’d rather do it now than in July. But there was no issues and I will NEVER do it again.

  13. I've never tried bee's knees . Do you think they are better than herring strips ?
  14. This booklet is available from DEC. it has every public boat launch in NY state listed Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. They are doing everything in their power to bypass the ability of local governments to stop offshore wind farms there is too much money at stake for these developers to allow such things as property value , sport fishing , environmental impacts , etc. to stand in the way of profit Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. There are probably a few old timers that remember the original Rhys-Davis cut bait I am a rabid cut bait ( meat) fisherman. I found this article interesting, hope you do too. The introduction of VHS spelled the end of the RD herring strips in the US. Rhys would not change his method of preparation. RD has been bought by Delta-Gibbs and I find that no good comes from this merger No other cut bait made since can come near the quality of the RD strips. I mourn the passing of this product every year https://www.bcoutdoorsmagazine.com/herring-strip-the-forgotten-bait/ Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. Picked that up off the spoonpullers web. Can’t vouch for it. Hard to get the old leaderboards I remember fishing the ESLO derby’s in the ‘80’s. Can’t remember any 40 lb fish entered. Heard lots of stories about 40 + back the. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  19. Same riggers I use his 16# torpedos much less blow back Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  20. I bought my GLS22 in January of 2019 hadn’t been run in 8 years. Took the owners word it had been winterized. Took a BIG gamble But I bought it right. Could have parted it out and got my money back. Turned out to be a great buy. Took some TLC to get it up and running. But it’s been a great boat Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. Agree 1000%. Pancake weights = tangles. They take on a life of their own in cross currents Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. Great advice. I might add to be careful of “ actual cash value “ coverage. The insurance companies idea of what your boat is worth will be far different than yours. Get agreed value or replacement cost Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. I’m in for 10 - 6 packs. &100.00 plus $30.00 shipping. Let me know when you’re ready to ship and I’ll make the payment arrangements. Thanks , Mark Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
