  1. Historically it’s april 12 - 17. I’ll let you know. It’s really just a small group of guys that do it every year. It’s a long night because you don’t shock the river until after dark. Then you have to milk the eggs and place them in the hatchery. But it’s well worthwhile. It helps a lot.
  2. I run the walleye stocking program in ogdensburg. I wouldn’t worry about the perch eating eggs and what not. When we shock the river it’s full of suckers following the walleye to eat the eggs. If anyone wants to witness the shocking of the river I usually know about 3 days in advance. We have to monitor the river and call the best time to shock it before we call th dec. We are always looking for help !!
  3. But 18 is the minimum size legally
  4. But one fish a day over 18 would meen you could only catch 1 fish.Who wants to get all set up on the ice for 1 fish ?
  5. The St Lawrence Valley sportsman club actually collects and hatches over a million eggs every year.SLR Walleye assc then raises some in ponds and the remainder of fry are released in Ogdensburg.
  6. Slot limits never work. Just look how they work in the Midwest. Not so good. With the amount of fish caught below thirty feet in the river a lot of fish would never survive being released.
  7. Quinte launches

    I've always launched at the ferry crossing. It's on the north side. You can launch and be fishing in 5 minutes it's right at the reach where you want to start fishing. It's a good launch too.
  8. Protecting SLR walleyes

    We don't treat the fry with anything to track them. We're worried it could cause a problem.We are funded through donations and our fishing derby we run in the spring. DEC feels there are enough walleye in the river and stocking has no impact.The DEC shocks the river so we can collect eggs so we have to obey by their decisions. We will continue stocking so long as they supply us with fish. By the way we know stocking works no matter what they think !
  9. Protecting SLR walleyes

    Probably not because we release them as fry. Dec doesn't do any trawl netting in this part of the river so they don't have any real information. From what I can tell this area of the river isn't really important to them.
  10. Protecting SLR walleyes

    I run the ogdensburg walleye hatchery. We usually release between 500,000 and one million fry into the river each year. We also provide the fry for the st Lawrence river walleye association ponds that they raise to fingerlings. We could probably raise double that but the dec limit our fish take claiming that the stocking program really doesn't help that it is more of a feel good project to use their term. So we would like to do more but we are held back. Judging from the walleye fishing 15 years ago to now I feel the stocking is working.
  11. Lake Erie Tournaments

    I will be heading out to the cabelas masters walleye circuit out of lorain ohio. Lots of tournaments out of ohio.
  12. Lund Tyee 1850 Kicker Question

    I had a 2007 tyee 1850. I put a 9.9 pro kicker on it and it was a 20 inch shaft worked perfect never dragged in the water and excellent boat control. 15 would be to short.
  13. Trolling worm harnesses?

    I troll them all the time on the slr with planer boards and snap weights running bow mount with the current.Takes a while to figure dive curves but I stick with a two once snap weight to keep it simple.
  14. St Lawrence Walleye "Novice"

    I've handlined in the detroit river most guys run a two or three pound weight with a six foot leader with a non diving stick bait.I don't know how it would work in the st lawrence because of being directly under the boat with the clear water,the detroit is pretty dirty but the current in the detriot is no stronger than the st lawrence.
