  1. Monster flock of swans off Wilson this week- lots of robins around. SW wind today took what little ice was floating out deep. Saw some guys fishing off the pier. Back harbor was ice coated yesterday- Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. X2- I match my spoons to my flies that are in my rigger mix also to start. Leader length and distance! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Has anyone ever tried this? I have never seen the leader line before until I opened a cabelas saltwater catalogue that came in the mail. I like the mono premium for mainline. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Lots of sound advice on here. I fished a 16' deep V when I first started fishing Ontario in the early 90's. After 3 years and the addiction kicked in my dad and I upgraded to a bigger boat.Being able to go out in rougher water is great and the fishing can be dynamite but it's not a whole lotta fun personally. I'm just a weekend warrior looking for a nice relaxing day of fish catching with friends and family. Tough to relax in bigger waves and everything is just a little tougher to do. Living where you are you have tons of options to find some quieter water as an alternative. I would look for the biggest TRAILERABLE boat you can afford and remember, Lake O can look "Doable" ( countless times have we said it's capping but doesn't look to bad as we are driving down the road )but once you hit the water it's rougher than you think- good luck with the boat purchase- you have no idea what your in for once the trolling bug takes over your every thought!!

  6. Thanks for the Report Killians- hoping to take my nephew down next weekend for his first ever ice fishing trip- good luck and stay safe Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Congratulations on a impressive shoot longspurs. You have things dialed in for yourself- Enjoying the pics- Been too long since we laid the smack down on a mixed bag like that. Lake O was rocking and rolling hard on the west end this AM- no way a boat was going out into it. Still seeing nothing but golden eye and Mergs braving the Wind ( from view of window of parents house) pier hunters in Wilson even stayed home! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I hunt Wilson- very low numbers of goldeneye and mergansers shoreline hunting. I'm not that hungry yet-Geese are around.Did see a small flock of cans. Have not seen a bluebill or bufflehead yet??Small flocks out deep- assume long tail and scooters. Hope to take buddies sculling rig out to the deep over weekend if wind and his wife cooperate. I have not been down to the lower river- I drive along the upper river every morning to work- not seeing any numbers of birds Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  12. I have 3 cudde backs. A 7 yr old attack IR, a black flash and a regular IR both 2 years old. I have had zero issue with the newer ones. The old attack has the same issue when battery drops below 50%. It still continues to take pics just the occasional all black pic at night. Only other issue I have with them all is the crappy mount that comes with them. Had one of the plastic POS mounts crack where the strap runs through while taking it down in sub zero temps. The batteries last a good long time even when set to video. The mode that takes a pic then a 30 sec video is awesome- got some great video of bucks chasing doe after the initial pic took the picture of the doe Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
