  1. Carleton Island is a great spot for muskies. Most of our muskies over the last few years have been taken on Swim Whizz lures. Good luck
  2. It's pretty simple. You don't like the rules DON'T enter or better yet start your own and you can see how much time and effort goes into doing these
  3. VERY nice. Both Nick and Vinny are GREAT guys and terrific fishermen. Glad to see you got out and on some fish
  4. OR-16 clip. They won't come off ever again unless of user error. Make sure the line goes under the tit in the middle of the clip
  5. Says who??? They can't predict the weather to the minute let alone the weather for the winter
  6. If you fished the lake more than a few weekends out of ANY port on Lake Ontario the last 2 seasons it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the salmon numbers were down. DRASTICALLY. If you want to know the status of the lake ask the guys who are out there EVERYDAY from April-oct from sunup to sundown. Guys like Captain Vinny should be used as a tool. It's hard to argue with someone who spends more time on the lake in a month than most do all season
  7. I hate to rely on electronics but RADAR is a simple solution.
  8. They have been in Lake Erie since the mid to late 80s so I don't think that has anything to do with the weights of the walleye being down. I believe it has more to do with the HARSH winters we have received the last 2 years more than anything else
  9. They cant seem to predict today and tomorrow's weather right most of the time so I'm not holding my breath to ANY forecast for the winter
  10. I will prolly catch some heat for this but a wise man once told me the Kings live on the western end of Ontario and go and die on the eastern end but besides spring it hasn't been the case this yr. Tough bite on the western end with some fairly good days on the eastern end
  11. walmart. Omniflex 50lb test. Cheap and the fleas WONT stick to it at all. Peal 100-200 yds off and splice the 50lb in.
  12. my guess is his dipsy rods were firing until he reached 400 FOW then his riggers started firing. Just a guess though
  13. Strip 200' of line off and tie in 200' of 50 lb test and you won't have any problems on your riggers. The thick diameter won't allow them to cling on. They cut easy enough on the wire dipsy's that you should be able to get them off in a few seconds. Most of the time they come off when going through the twilly tip if not, smack the line on the water a few times

  15. we had a lot on 30, some on 40, and none on 50 lb
  16. GREAT fish. We hear the same story a few times a year. I fish on a few different boats and I MAKE everyone on the boat at least get the 1 day ticket or they don't fish with me
  17. constant east winds most of the spring and summer would be the culprit imo
  18. I'd go without a fish finder before Id go without the fish hawk
  19. Its part of the GAME. Just check lines more often. Gives you a reason to change lures/FF more frequently
  20. He ALREADY has otters so he would be spending WAY less putting another set of keels on. The reason most of the charter fleet uses them are because the Amish boards WILL flip in some rough conditions. The otters WON'T
