  1. Happy Father’s Day gentlemen. I finally put a kicker on my boat. I planned on running a new line to the main tank but the 3 gallon tank it came with fits nicely under the rear seat in the bilge. you guys think that’s ok or am I taking chances with fumes/fire hazard?

  2. I can’t do 10’s anymore. Arthritis limits me to 8’s. The musky mayhem single girls are nice to throw. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. this photo is a Waneta musky about 25 years ago. I was broke then. I used a 6’6” browning bass rod from Dicks. Like $19.99. I had a Quantam $49 reel spooled with 20lb trilene. In the fishes mouth is a spinnerbait from walmart. I think it was $3.99. It had a black rubber skirt and two black Colorado blades. I put a tube on it to make it look bigger. I caught a fair amount of muskies on that and never got bit or broke off. I have tons of high end gear now but you can start out pretty reasonably.

  4. If you’re New I’m guessing you don’t have a lot of musky gear. At a minimum you need good long nose pliers and a good size net. Some strong line and quality leaders are a must. The eagle claw wire leaders sold at walmart will break your heart. Snaps will fail,guaranteed. Look into how you will handle a musky. You don’t grab them behind the head like a 6 lb pike. Pete Maina has some nice handling videos on you tube. As for fishing I would start casting as soon as there was room over the weeds coming out of the channel. Head to the west side and work your way north. Spinnerbaits and smaller bucktails should be good now. I like brown hair and gold blades there. Be sure to do a figure 8 or at least an l turn at the boat. Follows can be hard to see there. I avoid weekends there as it gets crowded. I’ll catch a fish or two about one out of three trips there. Great lake when they’re hungry. Put your time in and you’ll catch one. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. For casting I say reel,rod,then lure. I don’t troll much but I say rod,lure,then reel for trolling. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. Stay at it. It’s a good lake when they feel like eating Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I have fished two tournaments in my yak. I got skunked in both but my plan was to leave the fish in the bag and paddle to a couple feet of water where i could stand up to measure it. I’m never more than 20 yards from shore in the yak anyway so it would take a few seconds to move. I gotta catch one first though [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
