  1. Nature does a much better job of balancing things than man’s sorry attempts. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Don’t know why they wouldn’t. Politics not science. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Nothing wrong with shooting them [emoji3] they’ll just make more! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. When number are low young female will come into estrus early rather than just the Alpha female. This helps increases population. Also when population are high they have low pup numbers and when low they have many more pups. They seem to regulate their populations within an areas carrying capacity. I was also amazed how they have adapted to life in large cities like LA and NY. Certainly a jack of all trades. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I’m reading the book Coyote America. Very in-depth look into coyote history across the US. Quite interesting how they can actually control their population so when levels are low they produce more offspring. Even if you were able to take out 70% of the population a year their populations would be basically unaffected. Poison, bounties, trapping, hunting, and anything else we have tried hasn’t stop them from expanding their range as they are very adaptable and eat a wide variety of foods. Studies show that 60% of their diet is mice and other rodents. Author also said that while they do take some fawns and even some adults deer over time they have little affect on deer populations. An interesting read on how nature and carrying capacity work in population regulation. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Great fish. Fished BRB today and never moved a rod. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I agree. I’ve caught them out of Oswego, Stony Creek, Sackets, Dexter, Chaumont, and Bay of Quinte and from Cape Vincent to Massena on the SLR. Lots of quality fish available in the Eastern End and SLR. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. That’s a great video and shows there is an abundance of walleyes in the river. It also shows why presentation and boat control are so important in successfully fishing here due to the quick changing rocky structure they often relate to. Many areas along the channel hold fish and we regularly catch them in similar areas but finding a workable presentation without loosing lots of gear is the issue. Definitely not easy for first timers to the area or novice fishermen. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Prof T and I know from many hours of experience and donating our share of gear to the SLR river bottom. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Don’t believe you will have much success with side planer fishing the river as the bottom contour changes continually and current also must be dealt with. Boat control is critical and often you need to be right on a contour break. I have had some excellent nights with long-lining deep divers on the river in water from 15-25 feet and sometimes much deeper catching suspended fish. I have all caught them in even shallower water on longlines. Riggers and bottom bouncers as well as jigging all are go to methods on the river with the boat passing directly over the fish. Not sure if it’s the current or the ships that travel the waters that allow these methods to be effective. That said the fish often will move off the structure after 2-3 passes. When fishing Chaumont, Black River Bay, Bay of Quinte, Oswego or other regions of Lake Ontario boards definitely are a good way to go. However, the river with it’s unique characteristics seems to require different tactics. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Love poor mans shrimp using horseradish from the garden to make homemade cocktail sauce but it’s hard to beat fried perch using my wife’s relish for homemade tartare sauce. Seems like no mater how much I cook there are seldom leftovers. We’ve had a tremendous spring with perch and have many stocked up in the freezer.

  15. Sat my brother Keith in afield I had scouted and had set up a blind in. He will be 76 years old in July. He also had quadruple heart bypass 2 years ago and both knees replaced since then. Very glad I could put him on a bird.Tom flew down across the field and strutted. 2 hens flew down closer to him. Tom ended up coming to 40 yards and he flattened it. No decoy and he never made a call. Guess I had him wired. I passed on a Jake at 15 yards and a Tom about 55 yards and was only about 300 yards behind my house. Saw them crossing the field there last night. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app There was even snow on the ground
  16. We may get some snow tonight so not sure how the birds will react after a very rainy day today. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Within a mile of there. My friend shot one there 3 years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Just saw my first Jefferson County NY black bear. I was returning home tonight after scouting turkeys and it was only about a 1//2 mile from my house. I think it was 1 year old, about 50 lb., like a stocky dog and 50 yards away. I’ve had a trail cam photo but this was my first sighting. I wasn’t able to get my phone out in time for a photo. They are beginning to show up more frequently and several have been seen within a mile of my house in the last couple years. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Scouted this morning and both turkeys and deer were active. Seems like many jakes this year. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Yes there is Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Ogdensburg, Oswego, Chaumont and Black River Bay all can be good in May. I’ve caught good ones at each place. The 1000 Island area seems more productive latter in the year from my experience. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  23. We fished from West of Catfish to Port Ontario all water was clear but in front of Salmon river. There we found water to 50 degrees and colored but still no hits. Most of the rest of the places we tried had clear water 45-47 degrees. Fished mostly 5-20 fow but did try out to 25 fow. Tried speeds from 1.8-2.4 and leads back to 150 “ and various colors of sticks and spoons. Ran an 8 rod spread and never moved a rod in 4 hours.
