  1. That stick catches everything. It's a great time of year to be fishing, and now the kings are showing up. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. I think we saw you out there Sunday. I was fishing with Carl on the Dublin Up. We got a couple coho on 3 colors with red dodger/ peanut fly. We were after kings mainly though. Got a few of them too. I have had success on temp breaks in deeper water right about that time when the lake starts to set up. They usually ride higher in the water column and are schooled up. A four rod spread is key when you find them, that way you can turn on a dime and keep running baits through the school. I remember maybe 3-4 years ago we made 5 or 6 passes through one school and doubled or tripled up every time. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Tons of bait to the east of the bar in American water. Was a lot of mud too but we put three kings on the deck Sunday in green water pockets fishing the same depths. Still a lot of lakers and coho out there too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Double uni for me too but have been experimenting with the FG knot Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  6. 12" track on the corners for the riggers and 36" track up the sides for rod holders. I backed mine with 3/4" PVC board and fender washers. Used to use a transom bar, but it is way to confining. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Good first few trips of the year right there!!! It's only going to get better. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I was wondering when you were gonna chime in on the coyotes. Lol. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I am very educated on the topic of coyotes. I am an avid deer hunter and trap predators in the winter. I am telling you that hunting coyotes WILL reduce their population. If more people hunted them, the population WILL be reduced even more. I know they will adapt, just like any animal when their population is threatened, but I'm not talking about taking it that far. I seek balance. Do you know what happens when coyotes become overpopulated? I think you should read about that before we talk more. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. We're talking population control, not eradication. Two totally different topics. Hunting coyotes most certainly helps control the population in much of the same ways deer hunters help control the population. It's foolish to believe that it does not Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I bought a bunch of gamblers rigs as well. With the looming bait crisis, many friends and myself included have decided to make an effort to keep our boat limits to reduce the population. I'm sure our efforts will only be trumped by the federal stocking next year, but it's worth a shot. I'm not just keeping lakers either, less kings will be released this year by me as well. Pap, my son has been plucking away at the crows since coyote season ended. He has even cooked up a few breasts, and I have to say, it wasn't too bad. Tasted kind of like a lean, wild steak.

  12. This past Friday, I had one rigger within 2' of the bottom, and the other 5' up. Watching the sonar return of the weights on the screen, I could tell when a laker was on by the reduced return of the weight on the sonar. Happened over and over with none hitting hard enough to release Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Thanks skipper!! I'll have to remember to post pics of the garden in July so all the haters can see the fruits of my labor. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. You can defend the greasers as much as you want. I'm still going to reduce the population as much as I want. They are way overpopulated. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Are you kidding? If more people hunted them, there would be more of an effect. That's common sense. If less people hunt them, they become overpopulated. When coyote are overpopulated, they become deer killers. They are also known to kill most, if not all fox in area when the coyote population is too high. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
