  1. Pretry much sums it up - how many TV shows or internet videos show 20 seconds of sitting & calling to lure in a trophy buck, or 2 casts to catch a monster bass or trout ? I'm 46 years old - to me, hunting & fishing isn't necessarily about the end result, it's about the time spent in nature away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Something I'm trying to teach my 2 daughters. 3 year age difference (19 & 16), but what a difference in the two and their ability to deal with the whole "instant gratification" of today's society.

  2. Is there any natural spawning that happens in the little covers of the Bay or Vought creek ? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  4. Buddy and I spent about 3-4 hours out of turtle cove yesterday on the yaks. Lots of jumpers all around. No salmon hook-ups - caught and released quite a few large mouth bass. Surface temp was 66 & air was at least 72 - made for an enjoyable time on the water - and was able to even out the suntan on my toes.
  5. Any suggestions on where would be the best place to launch a kayak to target them in the bay ? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. Something that I've wondered about ever since the DEC went to the new licensing format years ago.... If I buy a sportsman license, why can't they print a single pane "fishing tag" like they do for all other carcass tags ? You could then carry that as your license. This is what I carry as proof of license, but the old traditional part of me has concerns that I'm carrying my receipt and not my license.

  8. Thinking about hitting with the kayak - hows the current ? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Kayak is a Hobie Outback SOT, and the rigger is a Scotty laketroller that mounts into gear head base. It's mounted on the gunnel right next to my right arm, and I can actually rest my arm on top of the reel when fishing, and adjust depth pretty easily. Replaced the wire with 300 ft of braid, and use a 4 lb weight with it - have actually used it as a anchor if it's not too windy. Here's a few pictures of it - the rod for the down rigger goes into the rocket launcher in front of it, and points out to the side of the boat when in use.
  10. Was planning on hitting Canadice at sun up to try flat lining spoons, but instead got off to a late start. Hit the water in the kayak at 8 am with 7 colors pulling a red revolution fishing spoon behind a 4 inch pro troll flasher, and an Iron Duke watermellon fly behind a green pro troll on the down rigger running around 45 - 50 ft down. Weaved in and out from 45 to 65 FOW, with a few marks and bait. Got into a certain area that has holding lakers lately, and keep hitting masive bait pods. First laker came off the 7 colors and measured 19.5" and was released. As I was resetting that line, took a hit off the down rigger, and ended up with another a hair over 22". At this point, I deceided to keep circling around the bait, so I pulled in the lead core to make turning around easier. Made a bunch passes, adjusting depth each time and got a 27.5" laker that took the fly deep and was bleeding bad, so she went on the stringer to ride along. A few more passes ended up with a 4th fish at 18" that was released. Headed back to the boat launch to get in before all the recreation kayaks filled it up Was on the way home by 11. First time fishing with flashers and flies, so still getting things figured out, but seems to be off to a good start - actually the best action I've had on Canadice to date. Huge shout out to Iron duke, ordered flies on Tuesday and they were in the mailbox Thursday. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. Was thinking taking the kayak out there in a few weeks during the fall runs. What are peoples thoughts on if flat linning flutter spoons and stick baits would be effective. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
