  1. With your downrigger down to a set depth (say 60'); attach another leader with a lure onto your fishing line that is attached to your release. That "slider" will slide down your line about half way down (about 30").

    Took a drive down to Myers and over to Taughannk today. Myers is iced over and Taughannk is bubbling away and launchable.

    Thanks for the info.
  4. Planning on taking a trip down to Myers from the Auburn area this Thursday. Anyone know the conditions of the launch? Ice/shallow/etc. I have a Lund Deep V 17.5'.
  5. Nice event with a lot of good deals. Excellent lecture from Capt. Pete !
  6. ELOSTA Fishing tackle show: 9625 Brewerton Rd Brewerton NY. SATURDAY March 14th 9 to 1:30. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. I have a 2003 Lund Fisherman 17.5'. My Cannon Mag 10's are mounted directly to the gunnels and with a 13# weight I have no flex. I also have Bert's tracks mounted in front on my riggers on the gunnels. The gunnels are backed with wood and I believe the wood is mounted tight to the sides of the gunnels.

  8. Two of my fishing buddy's when out of the Niagara Bar yesterday and told me it was a fish feeding frenzy. One boat had 30 hook-ups and the other landed 5 kings. I was at Fair Haven yesterday and it was really slow. Very little fish marked. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I was at the launch this afternoon and the launch area was all iced up. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Amazon.com has Collinite marine wax also. Just purchased a bottle Wednesday. Also, Advanced Auto carries it but both stores in Auburn were out of stock. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Owasco

    I would like to participate in the survey. Is the survey on the DEC web site. I would like to see Owasco developed into a trout fishery. Heard there was a survey out there, but didn't know where. Maybe that is why there has not been much participation.
  12. Looks like some kind of release?
  13. I was up in Fair Haven State Park today checking out the launch. Looks like the State is in the process of repairing the concrete at the launch. Anyone know when this work will be finished, or if the launch will be accessible during the construction? I plan to go out for browns in early April.
  14. It seems to me this SAFE Act is totally unconstitutional. The US supreme court overturned a ruling from a lower DC court preventing a special police officer from registering a hand gun he wished to keep in his home for protection. Here is a link to the summary: http://www.lawnix.com/cases/dc-heller.html . The supreme court wrote "The District’s total ban on handgun possession in the home amounts to a prohibition on an entire class of “arms†that Americans overwhelmingly choose for the lawful purpose of self-defense. Under any of the standards of scrutiny the Court has applied to enumerated constitutional rights, this prohibition—in the place where the importance of the lawful defense of self, family, and property is most acute—would fail constitutional muster. Similarly, the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional. Because Heller conceded at oral argument that the D. C. licensing law is permissible if it is not enforced arbitrarily and capriciously, the Court assumes that a license will satisfy his prayer for relief and does not address the licensing requirement. Assuming he is not disqualified from exercising Second Amendment rights, the District must permit Heller to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home." The NYS gun law essentially eliminated an entire class of guns. No manufacturer manufactures semi-automatic guns with seven round magazines. The legislature also passed this law without public comment, which the NYS Sheriffs association pointed out. We need to get this law overturned.
  15. Good job on the site. Looks clean and easy to navigate. Congrats on the baby news. I made my wife take the night shift
