  1. The ice was already cracked from strong West winds. It didn't just break up, it was already in large pieces. I was on Chaumont last weekend. The wind was very light yesterday out of the NE according to wunderground. My guess is that the West wind held the ice in there despite the current. Until the wind got light and switched.

  2. Did you save the fish? I think the lesson is to watch the wind carefully. That NE wind got ya. Be thankful it didn't happen in the middle of the night. No different than Oneida or Erie when part of the lake is open. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Sounds like a learning experience, albeit scary as heck. I am glad you got off okay. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Well using white perch for fertilizer isn't exactly wasting them.
  5. Exactly, throwing them on the ice does not accomplish anything. It is a very old school mentality. When I was a kid they would be all over the ice. I always throw them back. Wasting any fish is not okay in my book. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. They spawn under the ice and late ice on Oneida is a good time to catch them. I have never targeted them but I always catch at least one every year. They hit walleye stuff and perch stuff, they are pretty aggressive. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Any of you guys use Spypoint cams? I see they have a cellular model too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  9. Last year I saw a buck in March that still had both antlers. Ironically it was the same buck I shot with the rifle this fall. It was obviously a mild winter last year. Maybe it has something to do with the how harsh the winter will be? It hasn't been harsh yet but we have had plenty of snow so far. It would be interesting to see if there is a pattern that coincides with the weather. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. According to these guys, jaw aging is less than 50% accurate. There is way too much variation in what each deer is eating. They also teach you how to verify that a deer is 2.5 or older from the jaw. However, the best way to tell is to pop a front tooth and send it to them. I sent them a tooth last year and they confirmed that my buck was 3.5 years old. http://www.deerage.com/aging-deer/ Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. It won't matter what carrier you use for your cell. The trail camera has its own minimal plan.Here is a good look at Moultrie Mobile. I am going to get one soon and I will post my results after some testing. Browning has something comparable but theirs is camera specific with no add on needed. http://www.bowsite.com/BOWSITE/features/articles/equipment/MoultrieMobileReview/ Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I run all Moultrie now. My first cam was a cuddeback 13 years ago with the old school flash. It is sort of amusing to look at it now and it cost a lot back then too. I had my first issue with a Moultrie this year. The cam is 5 years old and started draining batteries very fast. Other than that they have worked great. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Good stuff Legacy. I keep a fishing and hunting log. At the end of the season I write a summary of things that happened and things to change for next year. It is very useful for me. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
