  1. We will run either the 8 or 12 oz on the backer of the copper. We run the black offshore releases off the line going to the big planer boards. They are a great tool in the right conditions. Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. We run torpedo divers whenever the conditions allow us. Off the planers, on leadcore and instead of having a 500' copper out, we run a 250' copper with a torpedo in front. It makes a difference when the fish get rigger weary. I have been catching walleyes on a local river running a thunderstick jr back 30' and a 4 or 8 oz. Diver in front to get it to depth.

  3. That is over a 2 hour drive from my house, if I make it out to Cabelas before you sell it I'll get ahold of you Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. Lakeview is awesome, Chris and Wally are great people Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. We made our annual trip to the Hudson and had a great time. We landed 33 fish both trolling and drifting worms. Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Here are the proposed new dates for the South zone Canada season- Oct 23 to Nov 19, Nov 25 to Jan 13
  8. You're right, the Western zone is too big and it is impossible to make everyone happy considering the Finger Lakes hunters, and east of here, are lumped in with people hunting on Lake Erie. I have tried to split the zone with no luck. Federal regulations do not allow us to split it 3 times, that has nothing to do with the task force. The limit on geese is 1 for everyone, including youth hunters, there is no changing that until the limit goes up. We get told every year what people think are great days for them, but what is good for us in the FLX is not good for everyone because of the size of the zone. What is your ideal weekend for the youth hunt?
  9. Thanks for your opinion. It's been my experience when taking kids out for the youth weekend that they are excited to be out hunting. There are still loads of teal, wood ducks and other species to target, not to mention the opportunity to shoot a goose. Let me know when your ideal weekend for the youth hunt is and I will make that suggestion at next years meeting. Thanks again.
  10. We had our task force meeting yesterday. Here are the seasons. Duck - Oct 16 to Nov 7 Nov 27 to Jan 2 Youth - Oct 2 and 3 Veteran/active military - Nov 11 and Nov 13 2 Scaup season - Dec 14 to Jan 2, all other season days the limit is 1 Brant - Oct 2 to Nov 20 Goose - West Oct 23 to Nov 7 Dec 20 to Jan 2 30 days, 1 bird limit Goose - South Oct 23 to Jan 8 78 days, 5 bird limit If it is necessary, and it looks like it is, that there is a restrictive AP goose season for the 2022-2023 season, there will be a survey sent out asking hunters if they prefer a 30 day, 1 bird limit or a 15 day, 2 bird limit season. It is still unclear if aircraft monitoring and banding will take place again this year on the AP goose breeding grounds. The AP goose harvest states are proposing a satellite telemetry project of greater than 400 birds to determine migration routes and chronology of AP Canada geese. This will help estimate the exposure days of hunting within the resident population zones, determine the timing of migration relative to current framework dates and explore the potential for additional Canada goose hunting opportunities that does not cause additional exposure to AP Canada geese. 600 +/- Hen Mallards from Eastern Canada are to be fitted with satellite telemetry to monitor reproduction, survival rates and better understand movement and migration.
  11. I took a ride to Long Point last Wednesday and there was still ice in the launch. With the cold weather we have been having, I'm sure it is still there.
  12. Fished Otisco yesterday and landed 2 short tigers Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Took 2 friends and a 14 year old to the preserve yesterday. The 14 year old had never killed a pheasant, until yesterday. He was very safe and a great shot. Taking kids out hunting and seeing the reaction on their face when they do something for the first time is what its all about. As always, Hank was on fire. Got to give a shout out to Frank at Upland Pheasant Preserve in Montour. I have hunted there for a long time and have never suspected him of not putting out enough birds. The cover is great and his birds are in great shape. Good luck and safe hunting
  14. I've been out once so far. Hank and I put up 5 and I killed one. Had fresh snow overnight and I could see where the birds had walked. I watched Hank find tracks on the ground and follow them, so cool. Gonna try and get out this weekend. Good luck and safe hunting.
  15. Hunted pheasants in the afternoon on Christmas day. I'm not very good at sitting around the house and my wife was cool with it. I took Hank to some state land in the hope that a rooster or two survived the gun season. No luck. It's a pleasure watching the dog work. Here are some pics of Hank this fall Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Merry Christmas to everyone
  17. Did a solo hunt with Hank. Had to leave early, while picking up the decoys I had a mallard try to land on me with no gun. Tons of snows and Canadas in the area. Good luck and safe hunting Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Show us, ALL the bands you shoot in September, not just AP, but local bands too.
  19. Got a call that there were thousands of snows in one of our fields. Got 3 boxes of Silo socks out and some Canada decoys. When we got to the field, there was a dusting of snow. After putting the decoys out, we got 3 inches in an hour. Thousands of birds came to the field but couldn't see the decoys. We managed to kill 1 snow. The Canadas that came worked us great and we would have had great shooting. Monday should be a good day for geese. Looking forward to tomorrow. Freezing temps tonight should have the ducks looking for open water. Good lucks and safe hunting.
