  1. Update to original question- new management for the Harbor resort restaurant is targeting Memorial weekend to open for breakfast. I am not connected in any way just passing this on. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Yeah no, cooking onboard will never happen in my operation. The clients bring enough for 2 armies daily anyway. To end any speculation, Nick has retired as a professional cook- Ive seen him receive incredible offers and pass. He did his time. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. There is some chatter about someone new taking over the Harbor resort restaurant(campground across rt 18) and opening early for breakfast but I do not know the timeframe. For now Bills diner in Newfane is usually open by 530 am and Tim Hortons drive through in Newfane is open by 530 am. There is the East side market in Olcott that has opened early with breakfast sandwiches in the past during Summer and fall but you would need to inquire with them if they have started that yet.
  4. Its been over a year since US anglers have been welcome in Canada, and now there is yet another complete shutdown in your neck of the woods. The best advice I could give is to join the St Catherines Game and Fish association. Lots of great people and lots of knowledge in that group. If anglers are actually allowed to launch over there right now, your area has good Brown trout, Lake trout, and Salmon fishing for the entire Spring.
  5. Thanks guys. Glad you enjoyed it. Have a great season!
  6. Join us LIVE at 5pm Eastern time on the Fish Hawk electronics facebook page. We will discuss Seasonal movements of Lake Ontario Salmon and Trout. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. While the feasibility of windmills ANYWHERE is still being debated, the last place they belong is in the public GREAT Lakes.
  8. This years event is Friday, August 20th 2021. This is the 6th year of this annual event held to raise funds to benefit Ladies Cancer research/organizations. It is held in Niagara County from the ports of Olcott and Wilson. Last year despite a reduced field due to pandemic concerns, over 10K was raised for BCN(Breast Cancer Network) of Western NY--metastatic research. Teams of women consisting of 2 to 6 participate on their own boats, boats of friends, charter boat arrangements, and generous volunteer Captains who make their vessels available. Hours of competition are 6 am --12 noon with an optional after party w/ fundraising activity as well as an awards ceremony. Interested parties can print out a registration form on the website-- reelinforacure.com All rules are on this website as well. Please direct any questions or to volunteer your vessel for an existing team(without a boat), or for a ladies team without a boat to get on a list to be paired go to email-- [email protected] For more info check out website and facebook page-- Reelin' for a cure. PLEASE use these above sources for info and registration, NOT this forum. It will not be monitored for that purpose. Thank you!
  9. Going with the "yearling plus" Spring Coho stocking should put a few more fillets in your freezer. A great Sportfish. Hoping all goes well with the trawls and the powers that rule allow full access.
  10. Lake Breeze marina in Oak Orchard has stepped up to be the major sponsor and hosting venue of these Tournaments. Keep watching for updates but save the dates.
  11. Ran an '82 with a custom lower station(which I loved) for 22 years. I would not put a kicker on it if you will be Salmon fishing. The clean transom is a beautiful thing for a guy coming from a 20 footer. Tunnels are notorious for handling challenges but twins are much better than a single tunnel for handling. Pros of the model you are considering-- super stable at slow trolling speeds, one of the best "ditch"(trough) trolling hulls I've ever experienced. Speed control was a STRENGTH with properly tuned 350's and a quality matched set of trolling bags--one for each side. Amazing amount of room in salon to get out of weather. Very large cockpit. That model was proven by several full time Captains on Lake Ontario to be a great fish catcher. Cons of that model were running hard into a head sea the relatively flat deadrise pounds a bit but the boat weighs 12k dry so its not terrible. Handling in tight quarters can be challenging but because you don't have to unlearn behaviors from traditional twin inboards you can definitely master it. Twin tunnels can be backed in no different than other twin inboards, you just need more thrust and to learn the unique nuances. Any used fiberglass boat should be surveyed. You may have found a '78 with very low hours but it should still have a complete survey of hull and engines. As for auto pilot, as long as it has hydraulic steering it should be very easy to install and should perform very well. One last pointer since you are new to larger vessels--the boat will track extremely well at trolling speeds with one trolling bag deployed on the side of the engine you are trolling on. Trolling is done on one engine in almost all conditions. When trolling into a head sea the bag gets pulled. Good luck if you decide this is the vessel for you.
  12. This reorganized association is heading in the right direction and has already proved its worth. Its a must for Stakeholders whether a Professional Captain, a related business owner or a concerned rec fisherman. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Good stuff! I remember when he went into the draft he was quietly coveted by several teams. My wife has family in Tampa so thats who we will be pulling for.
  14. We are pleased to announce dates for two of these events for 2021. They will be held out of Oak Orchard. The first will be a 1 day event July 10th. The 2nd will be a 2 day event September 4th and 5th. These events were very well received last season despite very short notice. Competing teams provided very positive feedback and area businesses appreciated the influx of anglers. Details are still being finalized but the catch formats will remain the same with 6 Salmon allowed per day and culling of live fish permitted. Look here for further updates and how to register/reserve a spot but we wanted to get the dates out there.
  15. So sorry to hear this. I'm sure I have met him at some point. I am very sorry for his family and friends loss and condolences sent. RIP Lake O angler.
  16. The last few posts were excellent. Very thought provoking. I was never a "camera guy", as we practically live on the water April--mid October. Rushing to get boats winterized always provides conflict with my preferred bowhunting. This year was different. For the lack of having anywhere else I took on a small lease just to have a place to hunt other than the back 9. The covid shutdown drove me nuts last Spring and I dove into trail cams pretty hard to keep my sanity and to try to learn the new spot. I have never worked harder and had less results at Whitetail hunting than I did this past season. Yes, primarily on a "new to me" spot but the biggest change was THE CAMERAS. Just as mentioned in above posts, many "one and done" pictures or despite extremely cautious approaches just night pictures of targets--even in cover. I have come to the conclusion that my camera practices are the culprit. Where they are placed, the brand, frequency of checking them, are all up for analysis. Before anyone asks- no, I have not gone to the "cell" cams yet. Is this where we are now with NYs educated herd? Sure you don't have to visit them as much but do they spook the targets less? I would love to hear observations on the benefits/damages that trail cams create--primarily on older/wiser deer--and I realize that that isn't just bucks--matriarch does changing routines can definitely alter everything.
  17. Well worth the watch. These guys do a test many of us have wanted to conduct and save us lots of money. I love the use of the USPS boxes! Some good info no matter where you land on the fixed vs expandable debate.
  18. Great job! Congrats! Not enough thorough recoveries these days.
  19. Excellent piece of writing. Just when I was about to reconsider public land again--you brought it all back to memory, Many of the exact same details I have experienced. The last time I gun hunted public in NY I came across a fella wearing a white "Jack Daniels" T-shirt and he had one of those chest belts on diagonally chock full of 12 gauge slugs. I was dying dragging out a doe on dry ground and all he uttered was "where ya get that one?"
  20. Congrats to all that have scored! NY no longer is a laughing stock buck state. Some real studs are going down and several in this thread. Kudos all around! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. I don't know anyone who has purchased one that regrets it. They are considered a staple in Northern Canada for all day sits. I don't mind them for blind hunting but find them awkward in a stand. Others love them.
  22. Great job and congrats to all the successful archers. I don't know about cold weather gear, I'm looking to upgrade my hot weather bow hunting gear! Even just base layers are too much in a blind in this weather!
