  1. Just to throw out some kudos to Gambler. I placed an order late last week and the box showed up today. Didn't even get a chance to open it yet but was real pleased with how fast the stuff came and his willingness to answer questions about his tackle. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Sackets has a hotel called Ontario Place and 2 nice ramps. I stayed at that hotel once when I came up to look at the camp I bought. It's a little farther run than leaving from Henderson. You could also launch at Stoney Pt to save some time. My place is up the bay from Sackets and we love it, very nice area. Decent bars to eat and drink at. The Barracks has a good place to eat also. There's a lot of cottages around that get rented out weekly as well. I know that "greenboatluke" on here is thinking about renting his cottage out this season.Navy Point Marina in sackets has weekly slips for rent I think as well, so does the "Barracks". You could probably just tie up to the wall at the launch for free as well without any problem but I don't know for sure. It doesn't get too busy. I'd try to avoid Henchen's Marina. They're not helpful unless you're a charter. They pretty much don't help you at all with information or even bait/tackle. Be better to stop at Woody's or All seasons on your way up to get what you need. The only way I'd go back to Henchens is in a pinch if I need gas for some reason.

  4. So just because you only have 1 or 2 days a week to fish means you shouldn't help somebody out for a half hour? I have less time than that but if somebody broke down nearby I'd stop fishing to at least do what I could for the guy. You guys act like fishing is the most important thing in the world. You can have your opinion and I'll keep mine. Only difference is people like me will actually show up to lend a hand instead of badmouthing him on the interwebz or the radio. What's your boats name btw? This board has really gone downhill in the last couple years as has the ethics of the "sportsman" on the lake. Every man for himself I suppose.
  5. Pretty sad group of replies here.......Hope none of you guys ever need help. I'm in the process of joining the AUX. I also run with my local volunteer FD at home. Won't kill you guys to help out a bit. Glad I don't live in NY
  6. I forget which town it was, but a high school aged kid was there renting zebco combos for $10 fully equipped with one spoon. I didn't partake, but I walked around helping out some little kids casting from the beach. It was a blast, they were hooking cohos left and right. I'm pretty sure it was icy straight point but I could be wrong. It was a blast either way.
  7. On a side note, we saw a ton of wildlife too, whales, sea lions, eagles....people on the cruise paid a bunch of $ for a "wildlife tour" and didn't see much. We paid less for our charter trip, saw more stuff and caught a pile of fish. Trip of a lifetime for sure no matter what you decide. Here's a few photos from our trip.

  8. I did that for my honeymoon. We fished on a charter out of Seward. We went 2 days early and fished before the cruise left. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Seward has lots of charters but if you can get there, homer supposedly has better halibut fishing. Seward was fine too but they were smaller fish. We still caught a 5 man limit on halibut very easily. Also caught ling cod, seabass, yellow eye (some type of snapper I think) and coho. Absolute best fishing trip ever. We were in resurrection bay. Fwiw, I'd try to stay away from the cruise excursion trips. They're overpriced and limited on time. We payed $250/person for a 14 hour trip out of Seward. I'll try to find the guys name if he's still fishing out of Seward. I couldn't afford the shipping for the meat back home but my cousin kept it all, he lives there. We had a few hundred lbs of fish. There was a place right at the dock called "J Dock fishing company". They'll wrap, freeze and ship your fish home for you but it wasn't cheap. I think maybe $200/50lbs or something like that. Whatever it was I couldn't afford it back then unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. Had a good screen early shallow, had one release. Brought another to the boat off the lighthouse and lost him due to a tangle and busted hook. Both on flasher/fly on riggers. Been breaking a lot of hooks this season on flies. Oh well had fun with good company. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  15. Went out early this morning. Very warm water. Had to go to 140' to find the colder water and we found fish. Wind was bad, waves were worse. Current was insane. fished a couple hours and said screw this then headed in with no action as usual. Starting to not enjoy this salmon fishing BS. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
