  1. Could have been at work. Just sayin"- beautiful day today
  2. lost a lure is correct though. Make sure you drain all the water out and you're usually good to go. Im move on from lake fishing to whitetails and steelhead in the Great lakes tributaries for late fall/winter. Maybe one of these years I'll join the Frostbite Fleet 😁
  3. Welcome to the Northeast. I have an outboard and I usually go until the end of October. Sometimes we have a fairly warm fall and some times it starts to crap out by the third week October. Once the temperature starts to be forecast to dip below freezing for a few nights in a row is when I surrender for winter. Some great fishing can be had up until then
  4. My brother has used the Navigloo system for 4 years and says he hasn't had any problems with it and has held up well. He is 50 min south of Buffalo and sees his fair share of lake effect snow
  5. Thanks. South end, 65 ft down over 520 ft. of water 27". Battery was zonked on digital scale so no weight to report Sent from my SM-G970U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. "Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated" - Seneca Lake. Caught today at 2 pm Sent from my SM-G970U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. For Seneca a lighter presentation has been working well for me on the landlocked salmon. Have not targeted lakers. Smaller spoons (under 3") fire tiger, mixed veggies kevorkian, chicken wing, etc, 10lb fluorocarbon leader, 40 to 65 ft down over 350- 500 f.o.w.
  8. The Captain is friendly and does his best to put you on to some fish. Maybe you catch some, maybe you don't. For those plagued by the demon of external validation the number of fish caught will make or break the day. I'm with camper4lyfe - a few good laughs with friends and time away from work and a few good fish?- bonus
  9. Very simple solution. The bottom line is that the captain is responsible for the boat regardless of who is at the helm. If you don't know the navigation rules learn them or stay out of the helm. This would alleviate a lot of conflict and frustration for a lot of people
  10. Unfortunately not everyone is well versed, or pays attention to navigation rules in crossing/overtaking situations. The water should be friendlly place. I highly recommend the Boat US online boating safety course (free). Very comprehensive and a great review even for those of us with decades of experience.
  11. Well done. No one will will have fond memories of their first video game or download but they sure will remember the time they out fished their older brother!
  12. Just wondering if anyone has noticed a difference between using 8" vs 11" pro troll flashers. Do you find one size more effective than the other? I only have the smaller size and have never tried the larger ones. Thanks for any insights.
  13. Overall a good week on Seneca. Good weather and caught enough fish to keep things interesting. Plenty of solitude and beautiful scenery what an awesome part of the country we live in. Well its time to pack up and go back to the grind. Good fishing to all
  14. I didn’t see any. Very healthy looking. Both fish were released Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  16. Another good morning. Landlocked bite is on today 10 for 12 so far smaller spoons 30 to 60 feet down in 190-350 f.o.w. Lake is pretty friendly today Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. For the trillion dollars of real estate and boats, this place sure is empty Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. Struck out this morning Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. Good evening of fishing last night. Found some bigger landlocked salmon out deep 65 ft down over 550 f.o.w. largest was around 3 lbs. All taken on mixed veggies spoon again. A curiosity - all the fish I've caught in the past three days have been on a north troll. Not so much as a single release on a southward troll. Any theories?
  20. More landlocked salmon this morning 50-60 ft down over 300-400 f.o.w. All small, no keepers Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. Day 2. Slow- skunked in the a.m. Evening troll was better- found some landlocked salmon 55ft down over 350 f.o.w. All fish taken on mixed veggies spoons Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. Day 1 Slow out of bed this am. Some jerk named Evan Williams and his friend Jack Daniels kept me up way too late. Focused on land locks to day and cane up with a big nothing. Saw lots of bait balls in 160-175 f.o.w. and quite a few dead alewives floating on the surface. Not sure what that’s all about. Dredging the bottom for lakers tomorrow.

  23. Heading to a rental on Seneca for a week's vacation. I'll post regular updates on any action or lack thereof. Tight lines to all
