  1. Wish you were closer to ny Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Here's a good resource for bait shops from another fishing site, so if I am violating any rules please delete: http://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?topic=154985.0
  3. I check the camera on occasion and there were a few times it was holding back ice, but never really much this year.

  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
  11. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
