  1. I'm just going by what she said, not something that I know for fact. But it definitely didn't seem like a number that she was just guessing at. I believe they do it to control the flow of the river for the hydroelectric dams and/or for the shipping lanes.
  2. On Saturday afternoon, a park manager was at the launch and asked a few people what could be done to make things easier for when the water level comes up another 11 inches. We told her that they'll need a some kind of ramp to step from the launch ramp onto the floating dock. The whole conversation gave me the impression that they're planning on keeping the launch open and want to be ready for it.
  3. Are there any public fish cleaning stations in town? We have to check out of our cabin by 11 tomorrow and plan on fishing up until the last minute. I'd rather not wait until I get home tomorrow night to take care of any fish we get in the morning. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Might be a good time to stop into Walmart. I just picked up 5 of them for 7 bucks apiece last weekend on the clearance rack. All the stores around here had a lot of fishing gear on clearance, so its worth a try.
  5. 30" carp on a stickbait outside the piers in Fair Haven and a 4" walleye in the Oswego River while fishing for kings.
  6. True. That Rebel crayfish always has a spot in my spread on my favorite Adirondack pond. Other than a wobbler and worm, its my best producer.
  7. Spoons. Wonderbread and a Michigan Stinger alewife.
  8. We got into town Friday afternoon for browns. Got onto the water immediately because we weren't sure what the weather was going to let us do for the rest of the weekend. We put one 8.5 lb brown in the boat right off the bat. And then it was a rookie troller's turn and he couldn't get the rod out of the rod holder, so we went 0 for 3 the rest of the afternoon. We got a hot tip from the neighbors who were hitting them pretty good all week and headed out early Saturday morning. We headed East out of the chute with a lot of optimism. after going a slow 2 for 2 after about two hours of trolling, we noticed another boat spending a lot of time fighting a fish a little farther out. We moved out to 30 feet and started pulling spoons at 15-25 feet down. Within 5 minutes, a 13 lb king hit a Stinger alwife four colors down. Obviously, we were happy with the move. But before I could get everything set again, the rigger set at 25 feet popped on a DW wonderbread. Turned out to be a 16.5 lb king. After one more decent brown, on the same wonderbread, things started slowing down. We kept going until around 11 and decided to pull our gear in and go in for lunch. We had been towing a 16" steelie for who knows how long. Could have been hours. I was happy to see him take off right away. The weather held off for the afternoon, so we went back out. We figured that since the big game fish were hitting, that we would try out deep. Couldn't even mark a fish the rest of the day as we moved in closer to shore. We fished through a couple little showers, but the swells were starting to grow. The big rain and wind started as soon as we got the morning catch processed. And then Sunday was obviously a three coffee pot kind of morning.
  9. We put two in the boat this morning between Fair Haven and Oswego. The browns were slow this morning, so we moved out. 20 feet down in about 30 FOW was the key. The bite didn't last long though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Twenty-something bucks a night for a campsite at the park is practically an afterthought when you factor in the rest of the cost of an overnight fishing trip.
  11. $100 for a refurbished Galaxy tablet, $10 for the app, and $15 for three mounts from Amazon so I can swap it between multiple boats. I'm a budget fisherman. Theres really no way to beat it. Its also handy to have the tablet on the dash for everything from music to the countless amount of fishing and boating apps.
  12. Anyone been catching kings in the bay or pond yet? We got a couple cabins in the park next weekend for my bachelor party weekend. Its definitely not the traditional weekend, so I want to try and make sure the guys still have fun.
  13. Got a baby king yesterday morning on a chicken wing. Nothing else for the rest of the morning. Gave up and caught a couple small lakers on gambler rigs. Took a keeper laker on a mixed veggie on 7 colors first thing this morning. Got a small, but edible, king a little later on a wonderbread on the rigger about 50 foot down. Last fish of the day was a barely legal steelie 5 colors down on a green frog. Everything came in about 230 foot of water. We zig and zagged between 200 and 300. The encon survey kids said we had one of the better days they've heard from anyone else. I sincerely hope that's not true. Anyone else get anything worth talking about today?

  14. Thats exactly why I edited my post. Didn't want to mislead anyone. Now I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm personally working on a very tight budget. After spending thousands on restoring a boat and upgrading to big water equipment, those higher quality bags are just not part of the plan.
  15. I'm also trying to stay on a tight budget. I found a few different choices on amazon. These are going to cost a little more than a couple of buckets, but they're still very affordable. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_3?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=n%3A3408951%2Ck%3Adrift+sock&sort=price-asc-rank&keywords=drift+sock&ie=UTF8&qid=1462147549&rnid=2941120011 Edit: As I'm shopping around and doing my own research, I've come to realize that the bags in the link might not hold up as well as the amish outfitters or papa bags. Might be better than buckets, though.
