  1. For the most part, lakers can not hide from your sonar. Once the thermocline is set up, look in depths from 70-130 feet. If they are there, you will see the blips.
  2. Nice going Isaac. And congratulations.
  3. Great boating conditions we have had this week! I have been talking with Doug since last spring about getting him out to try the vertical approach. The fish are plentiful but not as bitey as they could be. Luckily Doug got his first fish within the first half hour. A nice, fat, hard-fighting 29 incher. He was ecstatic. I told him trolling was a more productive Plan B if they wouldn't take our jigs, but after that first battle he was convinced that light tackle is the way to go. We had little spurts of activity throughout the day that kept things lively in between the pauses. Total of 5 fish for the boat that got reported to 2 DEC guys at the mouth of the creek coming in. They said nobody else was catching much, so I guess we did OK!
  4. I've used a Rattle Snakie! Had one back when I first learned how to jig lakers in the Fingers. Must have broken it off at some point, I think I bought it at Gander Mountain and never could find them locally again.
  5. Yes, a couple. Look for my YouTube channel under my name.
  6. I had set out to make a much longer, much better video. But the camera died at an inopportune moment! Here's the lemonade I edited from my lemon.
  7. Sorry to hear about your woes, Brian. I was annoyed Saturday because I lost a drift bag from a frayed knot, pretty minor stuff in comparison!
  8. Hello All, Last week I worked inn a woods that had quite a few butternut, a tree that can be somewhat hard to find. Couldn't pass up that opportunity!
  9. Hello All, Anybody know why they took away the long gangplank at the Sandy Creek launch? I have been away a while. It is so much more congested at the ramp now because you can't move out of the way while you park! At least the fish were where they were supposed to be. They weren't in much of a mood to play but I jigged up a dandy 31 inches
  10. I made a couple of instructive videos about laker jigging, and have posted them here before. Just so you don't have to go searching, here they are:
  11. Hello All, When I was a kid I was told you can bring a fire extinguisher to the fire hall to get it recharged. (It came from an incident where a reckless chum lit a fire in a dumpster, and had to make amends by recharging the tank used to put it out!). Anyway, my 15 year old boat FE is showing low pressure. My local place doesn't do that. Do I need to buy an entire new extinguisher now? Seems wasteful.
  12. Is anybody else having trouble with the LOU phone app? Mine winks out and shuts off as soon as I open it.
  13. Nice job Tony! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I have a stack of books about guns and archery that are free to anybody that wants them.
