  2. Tried to fish this morning but there were storms. Went out after but south west 20 plus. Dropped into 100 and put out three rods. After a few minutes I pulled, 3 to 5’s and solo just didn’t make sense so I went home. Couple hours later I decided to go for a ride near shore, too nice a day to stay home on my day off. Passed Rosies marsh in 25 feet of water and was about to turn back when I saw a pontoon boat out in about 35 feet of water which made no sense to me, off Braddocks 35 feet of water is a long way from shore. Way too rough for that boat to be out there. As I pulled closer I saw a hand waving at the stern holding onto the motor. Poor lady getting beat up by the waves and her boat, no life jacket and nobody else on board. She kept going under and coming up spitting water. It was really spooky. Her husband had tried to swim to shore and he had on a PFD from what she said. Thankfully I was able to tie up to her boat and decided to try to pull her up at the stern. She was a large woman and older and I was scared for her. Thankfully adrenaline kicked in and I was able to pull her up between the motor and the stern. “You’re f,,king strong” she said which made us both laugh. I was trying to figure out how to get her on the boat when the Coast Guard and the Lake Shore rescue boats showed up. I was so relieved. Sure enough my buddy Rick was on the Lake Shore boat. Would have been tough without their help, they risk their lives every day to help others. In a day and age where first responders are vilified, people should take the time to thank these people. My thin Red Line and Thin Blue line stickers will continue to adorn my rear window on my truck. These people are the heroes. I was just blessed to be in the right place at the right time.

  3. Yep they were lowering a big water bucket down and filling it up. They would fly south and dump it and return and repeat. I was just coming back from getting blown off the lake and stopped to watch for a few minutes. It was pretty cool. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  15. Assuming you’re electronics are solid I would cruise and scout a little. Find water holding bait and hooks. Can cover a lot of water at 20mph. I wouldn’t put down in blank water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  21. The net incident was pretty cool too. The king was half a double with a chunk bow. I netted Ricks bow with my left hand, the king with dipsy held in my right hand. Rick released the bow and soon the king was on the side of the boat. Rick netted the king and held it off the side while he took the hooks out with pliers. Just as he pulled the hook the front of the net dropped a few inches and the king hurdled out of the net, like it knew it had an opportunity and grabbed it. It then slowly swam on the surface parallel to the boat and laughed at us and taunted Rick. It was hysterical. All we were going to do was take a quick pic and release it but it had different ideas!
