  2. Fished with a couple buddies who are new to trolling the big lake. (They were out yesterday and only did 3 browns) My buddy asked me for help so my girlfriend and I joined them today. Set up out front of Ibay in 10fow trolled East. Fished all the way past 4 mile with a slow pick by 11:30 had 6 browns in the boat. Girl friend wanted to see if we could get her first laker went out to 40fow and set up. Got her first laker. Came back in and set up in 10fow and had a steady pick of cookie cutter browns between Webster Park and Cowsucker. Last fish of the day came in 20fow on a bayrat dirty goose 80ft behind the board. Came out of the release big head shakes and 500 feet peeled off the counter in a heartbeat and popped off (we all know what it was)! Called it right then and there. Finished with 15-20 fish, water temp 33.5-36.6, speed 1.8-2.4!IMG_2230.HEIC Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. My dad ran an 89 212 for close to 25 years before we sold it a few years ago, it’s a true fish catching machine! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  5. Could run a slide diver to allow for a longer lead to increase stealth in your spread. On our boat we run a wire slide diver. Take the wire and create a surgeons loop or a non-slip loop knot at the end and crimp the tag end to main line, loop it into a barrel swivel (barrel swivel needs to be big enough to withstand the pressure while trolling but small enough to fit through the line guide on the reel). Then attach a piece of 45-50lb mono ~50ft long. Put the slide diver on along with rubber or plastic tubing to be placed in the release to not allow fraying from the diver sliding. Place a bead between the diver and end of the mono. Now here are the options... can put either another barrel swivel on and attach an ~5ft piece of 20lb florocarbon to a snap swivel... or at the end of the mono attach a snap swivel then your flasher/meat set up. This allows you to run a longer lead behind the diver without having to run a long leader and I think gives more stealth to the presentation.

  7. This was for research, we helped a USGS scientist who has been conducting this study for the past 15 years. We picked the fish from nets and put them straight in the live well on the boat, to be processed. This is the only reason why photos were taken for research. It is illegal to take Sturgeon out of the water and take pictures with otherwise. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. This past Tuesday a fellow classmate and I had the opportunity to help USGS pull nets on the lower Genesee River. The EPA has 45 AOCs in the Great Lakes the Genny being high on that list. This study has been going on for the past 15 years all in efforts to help restore Lake Sturgeon populations in Lake Ontario. I have done a lot of amazing things during my time at Finger Lakes Community College with a Major of Fish and Wildlife Technologies with a focus on fisheries. This is by far the most amazing, I never thought in a million years I’d be holding these prehistoric jewels! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Thank you, we are very proud of what we have done as a class this semester, this has been an annual event/class since 2000, and the fry survival rate after release is a guessing game Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. No unfortunately too much work for the time frame of the semester and students graduating Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. We had a very successful hatch of eggs this last week on Tuesday! All fry were released back into the Honeoye inlet channel the next day, and Thursday we shut down the culture facility! Video will be made soon showing the whole process from broodstock collection to spawning and taking care of the eggs! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Got a late start this morning with my girlfriend, fished in front of the pump house and found a pocket of 45 degree water in 15 feet of water and we didn’t move finished 12-15 with mainly cookie cutters, however did managed a few nicer class of fish! Lost a King which probably took 250-300 feet of line on its first run. Hot baits were all bayrats, yankee troller took 80% of the fish, ridin dirty, and coho crusher took a few shots. Also got fish on the Helsinki, and jointed j-11 black and copper! Long lines 75-100 feet back, 50-60 off the in-lines. Great first trip! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I was down there today, left at 1:30 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. 0 natural reproduction, that is the point of the culture facility is to first provide an educational opportunity for me and my classmates, and also to bridge a critical gap between poor spawning habitat and allowing eggs to survive in the culture facility Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Eggs are treated with formalin, this fungus however has a ideal water temp range from 33-91 degrees however it survives much better in colder water Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
