  1. Wow, nice. I will check it out. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Thanks. Do you know the name of the app? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Has anyone been successful using an iPhone Lake chart app for your GPS and bottom contour tracking? I have 2 boats and am not excited about buying a GPS unit for the second one. I already have a fishfinder on it, but no GPS. I don't go out too far with it, but it would be nice to track my favorite fishing spots. Thanks for any info, good or bad. If you have had a good experience, which app do you recommend? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Absolutely. Several of my fishing friends only smoke them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Amazing color on those fish. Congrats. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Lol. True. I don't mind them, however, likely because I eat a lot of sushi. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. That sounds good (the lemon marinade). I will have to try that. We fished in remote northern Ontario for years and were spoiled eating the natural Lakers there....meat is almost red. We would fry them as well as quarter them, boil the quarters in salt water, then dip the meat in melted butter. Yes, I agree, taking care in making sure they are fresh helps a lot.

  10. Last week I tried maple syrup on grilled lake trout, after a friend suggested it. The lake trout were caught that same day and we filleted them, skin on. Aluminum foil over the grill and placed the fillets skin side down. Grilled on medium high with melted butter, salt, and poured maple syrup over each fillet. We harvested the syrup from our own trees this year. It was really good. My four daughters loved it....my wife not so much. She likes her fish cooked dry.

  11. Do you use vertical rod trees? They help keep things separated. When pulling core, things sometimes don't look pretty with your boards (compared to running flatline cranks, etc). Tattle flags might lay down, etc. As long as they still do their job and take the line away from the boat, they should be fine. Moving the weight forward will help.

  12. Mason Readicore (pre-rigged) and Cabelas bulk. No issues with either one. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Dave from Cisco knows what good customer service is. I've placed a few custom request orders to refurb some of my rod holders - and will be placing more - he's always been very accommodating. I have around 17 Cisco rod holders and I use Traxstech track (only because I already had the track before buying Cisco). I've tried them all and Cisco is what has stayed on my boats.

  15. You are welcome. Creating flash is key. Big flashers, dodgers, or cowbells with a spin n glow or peanut about 10 to 15 feet behind your ball and bounce the bottom. Let your rigger go till it touches, then you can either lift it a short click on your 'up' switch or let it stay there and bounce. Flash is almost more important than what is on the end of your line, as lakers are attracted to schools of baitfish. The spin n glow is an added bonus for them when they come in to check it out. Lakers are short biters, they don't necessarily demolish a lure like salmon do, that's why the Gambler design works so well. The 6 lakers I kept on Friday had nothing in their stomachs!!! I was expecting to see smelt. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
