  1. I just put that chip in. Perfect. Thanks again Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I do a week on the river in the same place every September on the same week. A group of four walleye guys are always there at the same time. They are good at it. Every morning they bring back a four man limit and go back out every evening for another. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. I had a garmin chartplotter/sonar for a long time that served me well. But I got older and it got hard to read it on the small screen. So I bought a Lowrance hook 2 with a 9 inch screen. I can see it fine now but the pre loaded charts are pretty useless. I guess I have to get a chip for it now. Only place I need it is on the river. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  7. 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? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. One fish over 30 was entered. A 42 I think. She won it all. Full report on chapter 70 Facebook page Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. was kinda hot. Note to self,after changing from jeans to shorts put shoes back on Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Stay at it. It’s a good lake when they feel like eating Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. 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
  16. My yak is 33” wide at that point. It’s bigger than that. I say 41. Beautiful fish Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  23. I bet if 50 guys answer this you’ll get 50 different answers. When a musky decides to eat the next thing that goes by gets bit. Get a couple baits you like and keep them wet. Can’t go wrong with a jointed depth raider. Cheap too,as musky baits go. I recommend a natural color in that clear water. I have a black perch Ernie deep diver and a fire tiger Baker that are pretty chewed up too. I wasted a lot of time there when I started. If I could do it over I would have gone with a guide first to see where he went and what he used. It’s not like a lake where you can stalk the weed line until you hit one. You can be ten miles from the nearest fish there. good luck [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. that’s all we got. At least it was nice out Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. I’ve been trying for 50 some years and can’t catch much until the weeds get up. Game on then until water gets too warm Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
