  7. State of the Lake -- Everyone please read

    GillT singlehandedly fueled the weary Kaho crew with donuts & a gallon of coffee! What a great 2 days. Thank you Capt Pierleoni, Nick & Chad for taking the time to see our work and the great conversations & ideas. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Minnow Identification

    One of the best is out of Wisconsin. Wiscfish.org - which apparently now bounces to this site: http://www.seagrant.wisc.edu/home/Default.aspx?tabid=604 Most of it was developed by John Lyons, an eminent fish biologist. The pictures are amazing, especially those that focus on distinguishing characteristics. Wisco fishes are fairly similar to NY's.
  9. Minnow Identification

    Looks like a Brook Stickleback. They are fairly common and tend to be found in places with decent water quality & cool water especially with vegetation. Lots of predators eat them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. $200 Reward, Lost Bow @ Howland Island Parking Area

    Hop, thank you for the offer, that's incredibly generous! What a testament to the quality of folks on this site. I dug out my really old Hoyt so I can at least get back in the tree. I'm just considering the rest of the season a throwback hunt. Thanks again Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I was a dumb a$$ last friday night (10/28). After walking out to my car I set my bow in the grass, took off my pack, put it in the car and drove off, forgot to load the bow. Realized about noon, went back, no bow. Let the local law groups and NYSDEC offices know about it. I'm happy to offer a $200 reward if I can get it back. 2012 Vendetta DC. Alternatively if you have a bow with a 32" draw that you are looking to sell I'm interested. Thanks Brian
  12. Time for the NYSDEC and OMNR to increase Chinook numbers

    A great discussion, lots of interesting posts. One point I would add is there is not an abundance of data that suggests Chinook will consume large portions of bloater if they become reestablished in Lake Ontario. Information from Lake Michigan in the 2000's suggests bloater are a very small portion of Chinook diets (attached picture). Across this time both alewife and bloater biomass density in LakeMichigan ranged from 10 to 1 kg/ha...so similar amount of each in the lake...yet in the picture, Chinook diets had very few bloater (red) relative to alewife (dashed green).

  13. Got out early for a shakedown with some LO Brown trout newbies. Water was 40-41 in the river, warmest water was 41-42.5 to the east. Landed 1 regular sized brown, missed a few others, fished from 6:30-8:00AM. Gold/black back stickbaits took fish and all hits. Found out the hard way my leader material was old, made a few donations to the big lake. Only 2 other boats out that day.

    Also fished out of deans cove on Sunday, went early morning, fished south, ran stick baits off the boards, nothing! Ran deep, ran shallow, ran really shallow, nothing. Picked up and ran to Sheldrake Pt., saw marks on the north side of the point but couldn't get them to go. Glad someone found some fish.
