  1. There are charts available to show the actual depth achieved by measuring the angle of the rigger cable. There is also a formula you can use to figure it I feel your pain. Years ( too many ) ago I was in the same situation. 10 lb finned cannonballs. At times with speed and down currents the cable was 45°. I found that to reach 100 ft depth I had to let out 150 ft of cable. I finally bought a cannon speed n temp. That verified my findings. Many times I was having to let out almost half again the amount of cable to reach the wanted depth. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Some plastics don’t mix well. I’ve had plastic lures melt when in contact with other plastic I’ve used kingfisher II flashers for a long time and never had that problem. I would get a heat gun and carefully heat the warped ones and try to true them up Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. I have bought weights from Harvey in the past. Good product at a good price from a good guy Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  5. The charter boys are commercial, so they can legally use 18 Seems years ago it was cardinal coast guard and they would make a ship to shore call for you at an exorbitant fee. Cell phone probably took care of that Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. I see that. It’s commercial only. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. I hope you mean 16. It’s the law to monitor 16 for distress calls. I thought 18 was a ship to shore telephone service Costs big bucks to use Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Depends on what port ur out of. Usually 68, 69 and 72 are the recreational channels. You are required by law to monitor 16 for distress calls Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. 8 ft for sure. The taller the antenna the greater the range. I use Shakespeare , but any quality 8 ft should foot the bill. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  13. Well I answered my own question. Went straight out to the lanes on Saturday. Little late start. Left the dock at 6 AM. Mostly blank screen , few hooks , few small bait balls. No takers. I don’t fish for LT , but there are days when you can’t keep them off your baits They didn’t even want to play. Threw everything at them. Spoons , FF , cut bait riggers set derp and shallow. Dipseys at 150 and 250. No dice. My probe had a connection problem , so no temp , depth or speed info Was going to fish the marks but there weren’t any. Lol. First skunk in a long time Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Went out to the shipping lanes this AM. Same result as you. Blank screen for the most part got out to 200 fow. Marked a few small bait pods very few fish marks. Parked riggers deep and shallow ( 20-30 ft) dipseys out 150 and 250 quit at noon. Never moved a rod. Threw everything at them. Spoons , FF , cut bait. No one home. Very rarely do I see a constantly empty screen oh well. July is coming. The June doldrums are upon us Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Thanks for your input. Sitting here right now waiting to go for my first PT session. Doc took X-rays and gave me a cortisone shot in the shoulder it has helped but rom is still limited. Pain is there but doable. Going fishing Sat. Hope with someone. If not solo. Lost my regular partner last year. Miss him Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. I’m going Saturday as well. See you out there Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. Never made it out had to go see doc for shoulder impingement. Hurts like he— Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. That pic I posted isn’t from any movie. It’s a real picture taken at Oswego harbor when small boats get caught out it’s the CG , Sherriff , troopers , volunteer firemen , et al That have to go out and rescue or recover their bodies They have to go out. They don’t have to come back. I have fished in small boats for years. I’m not saying don’t do it. I’m saying be aware of what you’re getting into There have been times I’ve kissed the concrete launch when I got back. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. I am amazed by this post from low balls my intention and Signalman's was not to call anyone an idiot and not capable of playing in the deep end . My post was directed at the newbies ,who, by their own admission have never fished Lake O . I've fished this lake since the mid 70's I used to troll from Wright's landing to Nine Mile . in a 14 ft Mirrocraft with a 7.5 honda on the stern we could fish through the warm water discharge from NM1 and Fitzpatrick I had a friend get caught in a storm in a 16 ft boat He survived the capsize ,lost all his gear and the found his lab on shore the next day I'm not new to Lake O If you are truly a charter captain , then you of all people should be totally in agreement ,that warning people of the lakes potential is a duty There is way too much name calling on this site I'm PO'd to the max
