  1. You can clearly see the hazards on your GPS or NOAA chart The hazard buoys would be to the left of the green aid to navigation coming in from the lake. Always keep the red aid to starboard when returning. If you were to the left of the green aid , you were in the rocks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Did you run into the rocks to the left of the rip rap jetties ? There are hazard buoys there but not lit. They would fit the distances reported. Glad everyone is safe Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Where did you see 1 footers forecast ? NOAA was at 2-3 which means 3-4 easy Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Absolutely. It’s a federal law to have level buoyancy also has a self inflating lifeboat under the seat and is equipped with epirb. We spared no expense Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. They look great. Do the wander in currents ? I had 13 lb pancakes that were a nightmare in any kind of wind or down currents. Tangle city Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. You had me when you said it was 1/2 the diameter of your current cable. What brand is it ? I’ve always used mason wire. I get the coated for one rigger for my down probe. I’ve always had good luck with it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. It isn’t single stand monel is it ? If it is don’t use it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Been using Roemers for years without any problems like the adjustability and the fact you can stack them Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I see your reasoning, but if that were the only reason Alaska , Washington state , British Columbia should be overrun with algae blooms. Millions of salmon that have spawned just lay in the rivers and rot. The mooneye die offs in the years before salmon introduction had all beaches ankle deep in dead and decaying fish , yet I can’t remember hearing about toxic algae in those days it must be a combination of factors contributing to this phenomenon. While I’m thinking back , Oneida lake used to get pea soup green by July , every year. Yet I never heard of it being toxic. Swam and fished in that lake every year. Green as could be Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. I use a bungee cord. Works great and quick to change course if necessary Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Oh let me see , how about troopers , DEC , Sheriffs , town police. I don’t want to see the launches closed because someone from a mandated state comes to NY and , God forbid , brings an uptick in Covid. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Lmao. Bring your check book and expect to be quarantined if you come here from a mandated state. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Everything has doubters because it doesn’t fit in with their plans. So it is a hoax Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Travelers will be fined $2,000 if they don’t comply with state quarantine mandate. Could be an expensive fishing trip Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Can’t go wrong with fish307. Quality outfit Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. That’s what the charter captains and veterans from Henderson call “ the wall”. It’s been called that for years Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. Maybe you mean “ the wall”. It’s in the shipping lanes between Gallo Is. and main Duck Is. long run. You can find it on your gps if you pan out there. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. You were very nice. Long lines have no place in traffic. If they lose a few rigs they will get the picture Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. And I always add 1 ft to wave predictions if they are calling for 1-3. You can bet on 2-4. Would like a dollar for every time I’ve seen the forecast and gotten to the lake to find a maelstrom. Oh well. Go to breakfast. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  20. You can adjust that off set on your sonar I’ve never bothered that 18 inches would actually help you in shallow water I meant don’t look at your sonar , if it is tracking your cannonballs , and think that , for instance it shows your cb’s at 100 ft. , That is their actual depth. It’s not. It is showing an object 100 ‘ from the ducer Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  22. And always add 1 foot to wave height forecast. If it says 1-3. It will undoubtedly be 2-4 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. I was trying to copy the chart I can’t get it to paste. Go to Lake Michigan angler -Determining down rigger depth while trolling -they have a chart and formula. It’s an eye opener And don’t make the rookie mistake of thinking your sonar (Distance finder) is showing you the depth your bait and cannonballs are fishing. It’s showing you how far your cannonballs are from the transducer , not the actual depth
