  1. Anyhow when we were there Friday I got the name of contractor that’s doing this project. Got project managers name& # too. Cerone construction co. Tried calling him no luck left message. Want to know what the new project ed completion date is. Right know it’s 1 year past projected completion. I’m gonna be a squeaky wheel. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Water level looked fairly normal to us.
  3. Made trip to Ft Niagara. This is what we saw. Will try and send a few more pics if I can figure out how to it. Its definitley a floating dock system that will connect north and south ramps. The floating docks will run parallel to the shore.. It should be real nice when its done. Was supposed to be completed in spring of 2017 according to billboard/picture/sign at entrance way to launch area.
  4. I live on upper Niagara river. Never seen so much ice in river with boom still in. Feel like there can’t be much ice left out on Lake Erie. Had some bad tree damage today. Hope you all came out OK from this wind storm. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Thankyou Jeb1340. Water level looks totally fine. Glad to hear they are working on it. Its gonna be a really nice launch setup when its finished.
  6. Had Cannons for more then 20 years. Had my fair share of problems. Got to a point where I bought an xtra cannon just to keep as a spare while one was in the shop getting repaired. Went with Scotty 2116's on new to me boat in 2013. Zero problems since then. Only problem I'd say is Scottys don't look as cool as Cannons.
  7. Wow!! Thats good shooting!! What port did you come out of?? What kinda water temps were the fish in??
  8. Are you saying the Ft. Niagara boat launch project is still not conpleted ?? Is the south ramp still closed ?? How is the water level so far this spring ??
  9. What size motor with that mercruiser I/O ?? I know they made that boat with a V6 and a V8.
  10. Did the project to put a floating dock system connecting north & south ramps ever get completed?? I think it began in winter of 16-17. Then all work stopped in spring of last year cause of high water. Work never resumed entire summer. South ramp was closed all spring and summer. Anyhow saw the pics of what it should look like when done, its gonna be awesome!! Just curious on where this project is at??
  11. Hey Lucky 13' m with you. i'm seeing climate change in my lifetime if others don't they are in denial . So where do we go from here?? I'm very worried about the future of our Great Lakes fishing. Seems to me our goverment should be engaged in whats happening in the Great Lakes.More then 20% of the fresh water the entire planet We are at a Lakes hey
  12. I went with Traxstech stuff all over my new to me boat back in 2013. Lots of track ,rod holders. rigger mount risers, planner board mast and planner board reels and more. Spent a good buck and have been pretty happy with everything except the planner board reels. They were awful !!! It was almost impossible to reel in my big boards . Previous boat I had Big Jon mast reels not a problem. Problem with Traxstech reels is the diameter of the spools. I sold them and purchased some bigger reels can't remember brand but I'm happy. Think of it like gear ratio on a long copper or lead core reel. Size matters!! I like all my Traxstech stuff its probably gonna outlast me. On that particular item I don't think they did enough R & D. Just my HO.
  13. TR-1 is your answer. Its expensive but you'll be soooo happy! I've had it on 2 different boats. If you buy from a place out of state its no sales tax and saves alot. I reccomend Calumet Marine in Chicago area. There tech help was great over the phone so I could do my own install. Also did on the water programming and calibration with tech help on the phone.
  14. I like 27 lb. Could not say what best brand is. I always try and buy 200 yd spools,gives me more options on how much to put on reels. We use 27 lb on Ontario and Erie. Catches lots o fish!!
  15. I trust Robins more then groundhogs!! Saw my first one yesterday,2/28 . Then saw 7 more later on. Its gonna be an early spring even though we're gonna get alittle more snow March.
  16. gone there is no better place to be then the Niagara Bar. Typically trolling in 50 to150 fow. Good luck!!
  17. In the spring the first thing you look for is bait. The more bait you can find the better. Alewives and smelt will be concentrated near warm water discharges on LO. Thats where the Kings will be. Once the ice boom is
  18. Do they attach to rigger cable just above the ball?? Just curious cause I've got two of them, I think in a box of paraphalnalla on my boat. I've had em for 20 years and never tried using them. One is green the other black, both have crushed glow tape on them. Very curious if any one has had experience with them.
  19. If you don't use a razor blade the mono or floro will probably have a bur on it that you won't be able to see with naked eye. That will prevent you from pushing the line into the sheath of the leadcore. If you don't use a razor blade to cut the leadcore you will probably have alot of fraying at leadcore cut. You won't be able to see hole to push the line in.Anyhow this is a knot that works great. Its never failed me in 25 years. Do a couple practice knots be for making your final connection.
  20. The trick to tying the "remove the lead lead core knot" is you got use a sharp razor blade to cut your leadcore and your floro or mono.
  21. Love my Scotty 2116's ! Just set the stop beads so ball stops 2 feet below surface. Switched from Cannons in 2011. Zero proplems with Scottys.
  22. I keep 2 of those small air horns on boat all the time. There high pitched and loud!! Keep two in case one runs out of gas. They get used numerous times each season. When a boat starts getting to close or seems like its on a collision course with us we BLAST EM with one or both of these horns. We've had alot of close calls over the years. Theres some real idiots out there!!! Defensive boating everyone and BE SAFE !!!
  23. I'm gonna pull the trigger on an HDS Carbon 9 this winter and take qdvantage of rebate being offered. Been advised by BBG marine to match with TM-150 chirp ducer for the Lake O. trolling I do. No need for SI or Down imaging ducer I;m told. But what about a thru hull ducer??? Is the Airmar P155-m the comparable to the TM-150??? Keep hearing thru hull is better. The boat is a Pennyan 22ft Outrage. If I went thru hull I'd hire an experienced installer for job. Opinions please.
  24. I agree !! No boards at the bar!! Everyone is trolling west to east or east to west trying to cover 60 to 120fow. Its just no place for boards. Granted some are running stuff down the shutt but boards forget it !!! Its asking for trouble, and is inconsiderate of your fellow fisherman!
