  1. If the chatter sticks deal falls through, I'll take them Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. They only stock pheasants for the first couple of weeks of the season, there are a few remaining pheasants here and there though. Like others said probably best spot is Tonawanda and oak orchard with Iroquois NWR between them. Iroquois needs a permit but all it is a piece of paper you sign and keep with you. Lots of spots to hunt. A friend of mine works at Iroquois and he saw a pheasant just the other day.
  3. Humminbird 597 not saving settings I have a hummingbird 597 set up for ice fishing but every time I turn it off with the power button it resets to the previous settings. I use this unit as a GPS only in the boat. I have 2 597s as one came with the boat when I bought it and had the other on my old boat and save it. But every time I turn the unit on I have to go through all the settings from turning the sonar on to the advanced mode, etc. I have tried researching it but have not found anything other than I may need to update, last update was last spring/summer I think. I have also used this in the summer on a Canada trip as I have a spare transducer and had the same issue there with the settings. I am getting good at remembering the settings but its a pain. TIA
  4. I use my walleye rigs which have 12 lb but like others add a flouro leader in 10 or 12. Distance behind the ball can also depend on water clarity. I was in some dirty water and only had a 40 ft off the ball and saw a brown hit the spoon.
  5. Like others have said its doable if you pick your days, watch the weather and run in if you don't feel safe. I used to go out in a 12 footer but always had oak orchard creek to fish as a back up, then went to a 16 alumacraft that got me out further. The beam width was narrow on the alumacraft and in some waves you got thrown around. If it was a 16 ft with wide beam like the starcraft in the pics above would be your best bet. East end of Ontario is worse for waves than the west end, going out of I bay you should be ok, I fish Erie a lot now and really have to pick my days. I now have a 176 starcraft superfisherman with wide beam and it is a lot better in the waves than the narrower boat.
  6. If I redid mine this what I would do. Mainly use the canopy when the wife is with me (she likes to fish so I deal with the canopy)otherwise I think its in the way and don't use it much. For fishing Erie I have to watch west/sw winds. Ontario depends on where you launch. I have been out in 3-4 ft waves and felt ok but that is probably pushing it. It also depends on the wave frequency (distance between waves).
  7. I have a 2001 176 superfisherman. I like it a lot, only real drawback is if you troll a lot in crappy weather the back deck area may be a pain. One of my riggers is set a little back and its somewhat harder to work with when choppy out. Rigger is set back further due to canopy suppost. Also netting fish you need a longer net handle to get to the fish. But it is a compromise as I fish smaller lakes and perch fair amount also.

  9. Yeah told him to take it in and see if it was chipped. I have not heard anything more about it from him nor have talked to him in a bit so not real sure what the outcome was.
  10. I haven't done corned vension but make corned Canada goose and it turns out great. Two changes I make are to add a fruity beer instead of water and brown sugar instead of white sugar. I cant remember where I got the recipe. I need to try making pastrami, seems like it is corned with pepper/spices casing.
  11. Anyone know of a lost English setter near Attica? Friend's neighbor found one moo collar and seems to be a good hunting dog. Sent from my XT907 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Its a raycor water separator. I am not a 100% but think there is a check valve on it along with the bulb check valves. I did a lot of research and seems like there has been no issues. I have had it on my boat for close to 3 seasons now with no issues. Walleye central was where I got most info and the hull truth.
  13. I have a 17.6 starcraft superfisherman with a 8 hp Yamaha. Pushes it nicely. 9.9 will move your boat fine. I don't have any issues with vibration and have it on the transom. I did add a fuel and water separator that has 2 outlets so both the kicker and main motor are hooked up. That way you do not have to switch back and forth which may be an issue in rough water.
  14. Lots of guys out down here. Heard reports of lots of birds for youth weekend so good numbers of carryover. Got one and should have had a second but I was looking at something different when the bird flushed and missed. Sunday morning there were lots more people out, 2 flushes out of range. I usually hunt more later on when everyone else is moved on to the next thing. Less people and more room to work my dogs.
  15. Troutman makes great weights definitely won't be disappointed with them or his service. Only bad part is buying more when you donate them to the lake. Otherwise would not need any others. Sent from my XT907 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
