  3. So Craig has informed me that Tommy Boddy will run "Big fish friday" on July 9th, so interested teams should see him to enter. Also, there will be a KOTO on Saturday July 10--the same day as the Big Boy Shootout. Competitors that want in on both can do so.
  4. I just heard Gatlen of Lake Breeze marina has booked a band( at weigh in site in marina} lot 6-9 pm, Friday night July 9. Burgers and hot dogs will be available. The one day shootout tournament is July 10th. Mandatory meeting is 6pm Friday July 9 on marina cafe' deck. Contact Craig Hijecki for tournament info/entry details.
  5. The Captains meeting for the July 10th Big Boy Shootout will be held at 6 pm July 9th on the Cafe deck at Lake Breeze marina. For details on this Tournament contact Craig Hijecki or stop in and see Lois at Lake Breeze marina.
  6. This time of year can be challenging on the Lower even for experienced river guides. There is lots of spawning bait and a plethora of moss coming down--particularly on a strong SW wind. The latest forecast I saw tonite says T storms most likely after 2 pm Saturday. Of course there's no guarantees but there are enough fish within a few miles of shore that it should be worthwhile to hit the lake for you.
  7. Yes on both. July 10th is a one day shootout. Sat/Sun of Labor day weekend is two dayer. Contact Craig for further details. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Updated Cup points after the first of 3 events: Cup points…. 1. Yankee 301 2. 5 more minutes 281 3. Oh baby 278 4. Legacy 276 5. Mister 274 6. Thrillseeker 270 7. Vision quest 248 8. Dublin 228. Everyone is still in it and this is what was envisioned. 4 more scoring days and 2 events. Thank you to Matt LeClair for the score keeping. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Come fish Niagara County and pop that damn Coho cherry! Or maybe you shouldn't as your family will send you out for more and you will be in your buddys ear asking for more yearling plants! Sadly, yes there is LOTS of "wasted fish flesh" as those bait pics Gill has been sending you are NOT the 1 yr olds. They are GIANT alewives--so big that even adult Kings could have a hard time choking them down. Should be ideal for pig Lakers though. They are rattling riggers and hitting spoons like they did in the 70s and 80s. The pressure on the Kings is insane. We never needed the cut--WE the anglers as well as the damn cormorants, and Walleyes were already instituting a cut. This fishery cannot be sustained waiting on a good King or Coho wild hatch every 4--6 years.
  10. As it was intended for 2021(before Covid threw a wrench in the plan) the Niagara Pro Am, Orleans County Open, and the Sodus Pro Am will be used for scoring the Challenge Cup Chase. Those interested in getting in will need to see Matt LeClair before or at the Niagara Pro Am Captains meeting. Matt will once again keep the scoring system for the series. Cup/Tourney Coordinators received questions about boat restrictions. It was decided that because it was allowed in the past that this year a max of two different vessels can be used per team. This may not be the case in the future if some other plans come to fruition. Teams using two different boats must have the same Captain throughout or two consistent team members at all 3 events. Good luck to all participants.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. While the feasibility of windmills ANYWHERE is still being debated, the last place they belong is in the public GREAT Lakes.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
