  1. Saw a post of a 14.55 lb caught at Chaumont. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  2. I heard a wheeler went through at Chaumont launch, Eel Bay and Perch River. Be careful! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  3. Doubt if it's good. I fished LOTI today and there was 6-8" of honeycomb type ice. It was also beginning to break up some at the launch. Also heard someone dropped through at Chaumont yesterday and with more warm weather next week things will be sketchy. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  4. One day ice fishing on Chaumont Bay we caught about 10 burbot. They were up on a rocky shoal. By the way they were very good eating. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  5. I heard of a 22 lb laker taken in Chaumont Bay yesterday. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  6. Always wanted to see a predatory bird working. My late season never panned out as I had family commitments and never got to hunt late Canada or Western zone. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  7. One thing we can all agree upon is this is a fragile fishery and needs protection. All fish caught have a chance of mortality summer or winter. Even when fish are handled correctly there is no easy way of knowing if it actually survived. Actually I feel Ice fishing released fish may survive better due to cold temperatures ( assuming fast release with no freezing) . The ice also supports their weight if not lifted vertically. I certainly don't feel this fish was targeted. I've ice fished the river 40 year and caught 1 Muskie through the ice but incidentals do occur. There were many assumption made about the catching, weighing, targeting, etc. of this fish. I certainly understand people's concerns. However, I know the fisherman and believe he would do whatever possible to ensure the survival of the fish, but I too was not a witness. It's easy for all of us to judge others and be passionate about a sport we love. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  8. This angler is a former student of mine and a good fisherman and sportsman. He has caught plenty of trophy fish and knows the proper way to handle and release them. I'm certain he released and handled this great fish with care. I've been criticized for keeping (legally caught) fish on this forum and thus seldom post photos or share information anymore. It's easy to judge an individual by a single photo without knowing the entire story. I certainly do agree that released fish should be handled with great care.

  9. Another great hunt! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  10. I froze in zip locks with water for years but vacuum seal is even better. I buried mine in a snow drift the other night and they didn't freeze and were nice to clean in the morning. A cooler with ice or snow and a drain so there is no standing water is a great way to keep them. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  11. Pap, that was some interesting reading. I had a freezer go out on me once and had some thawing. I refrozen it all and had no issues. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  12. Planned a trip down to the lake this week but weather and circumstances prevented our trip. Glad some are having a good late season. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  13. Haven't heard much on late western season. How was opening weekend? Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  14. Those are nice pickerel and good eating. Never caught one in the SLR but have in Chaumont and Henderson. Wonder why they're not in the river? At least I've not seen one in 40 years.
  15. Small pickerel and pike are harder to fillet than the bigger ones. I have eaten some big ones and they were also very good. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
