  1. Please let me know how I can assist. I have a couple other retired friends that I'm sure would also volunteer. Send a PM and I will give you my phone number or simple send me a PM when we can help. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Jimski2, I respectfully disagree with much of what you have said. I believe the slot limit on the Bay of Quinte has been highly effective in restoring their walleye populations. I have also talked with with fisheries biologists, taught high school biology for many years, and don't regularly visit "Mahogany Ridge". Not sure how much time you spend on the SLR and Lake Ontario fishing walleyes but it is currently a tremendous fishery and I've seen a vast decrease in the pike and bass populations here in the last 30 years and think being proactive on the walleye population is reasonable. I agree that there are many factors other than hook and line harvest that can affect fish populations particularly degradation of habitat and invasive species. Yearly spawn conditions also can have a huge impact on recruitment. I certainly don't consider myself a do gooder and in fact harvest many fish each year. That said, I'd personally rather error on a conservative approach to insure this great fisheries is available for future generation. I'd prefer not to wait till production falls and wait for nature to take its course and retain a reasonable sustainable harvest. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yep keep eaters 18-26" or so and release the big girls pushing 8+ lbs. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Perhaps the easiest way is to encourage individuals to release the bigger spawners and keep the eaters. Many are already doing just that. Similar to encouraging people to let small bucks walk. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  5. Don't feel like that is punishing ice fisherman by limiting egg laden females if it preserves the resource. Would be willing to change the open water regulation if it's needed. It's all about a sustainable harvest for future generations. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I see Niagara River has a one walleye a day over 18" limit from January 1-March 15 to protect the large spawn laden females. Sounds like a great idea for Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence River. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  7. First trip on the ice this year for walleyes

    Ice was 8-10" Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Oneida 1/25

    Nice job Landshark. We hit them pretty well also. Some on tip ups and some on jigging spoons. Fished from 3:00-7:00 pm. We caught them in around 18 fow. Gold spoon was best for us but caught the big fish on a tip up. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Went out with 2 friends this afternoon. Caught 7 eyes. Two shorts and largest 28 1/2". Some on jigging spoons and some on tipups.
  10. Got to take a father and son out in the ice yesterday. Neither had ice fished before. Managed some good perch and a couple pike in 3 1/2 hours of fishing. Typical mistakes were made setting tipups wrong but still dad entered a 28" northern and son a 12" perch for the Alex Bay derby. 4 year old won a nerf football and a medium pizza. Lots was learned and fun for us all. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. 2017 WATERFOWL SEASON

    Unfortunately wasn't able to get out much at all during late season. However, I really enjoyed viewing these post and the dedication of these successful late season hunters. It definitely takes a special mentality. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. SLR ice

  13. SLR ice

    Perhaps if you ate them the day they were caught they would be better. By day two the dogfish turned mushy. I made some poor mans lobster out of pike and out of the dogfish. Although it wasn't terrible the pike was better. Likely will release them as always from now on. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  14. SLR ice

    My search found they are not very good from warm water and their skin acts as a kidney so it's important to clean them immediately or they can have an ammonia taste. Since this is my first try I'll let you know my results. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Lost Ice Fishing Gear

    Wow, what great news. Must have been a devastating discovery and a long wait. Sorta like shooting a deer and not finding it till the next day. Gives us all hope for our messed up world. There are still plenty of good people out there! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
