  2. Some parts of the river are pretty congested, and as a result a speed limit of 30mph was enacted between Rock Island Light (just above the bridge) all the way to Chippewa. I think high speed is generally what most irritates “conventional “ fisherman, along with the practice of blasting by a bait fisherman at close distances.

  4. It's the opening week of bass season and I've never seen so many pro style/equipped bass boats working the area from Clayton to Alex Bay. Is there some kind of tournament going on or are folks just out enjoying the area? Got to be good for the motels and bait shops and most notably, gas stations. Publicity appears to have drawn a lot of out-of-staters.
  5. Pretty rare fish indeed! Love those fog horns early in the AM. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Nice catch! There seem to be some decent size fish this year. April was awesome, and it seemed you could still find some good schools this month. It's easy to find friends when you've got some good perch coming! Stay on em.

  8. Jim, Great video. Gets my heart going for sure. That being said, if a guy is planning to try downriggers here, he'd best be knowledgeable about the structure he's fishing, have good charting software, and a better depth sounder. As usual, summer fish are generally in the bottom 3 ft amongst those well documented broken boulders. Very unforgiving, but not impossible. Patience is the key.
  9. Much more comfortable than traditional type. It is now an automatic for me to wear it, even beyond May 1. Keep in mind that in NY they only count toward your 1 PFD per person IF THEY'RE ON. I still carry traditionals.
  10. You know Kevin doesn’t exaggerate when he says it was “a little” windy. I know for a fact that Kevin enjoyed this day more than anyone involved. Well deserved! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. If you are lucky enough to have a fish market in town, go there and get a bag of their Golden Dipt all purpose breading. $9.25 for 5 lbs. It’s not the same as you get in the store. My friends run Stan’s in Rome and have cooked thousands of pounds of fish and supply all area restaurants. It has a binder in it so it doesn’t fall off into the oil, burn, and wreck your next batches. I also use their prewash Batter Mix instead of milk and egg. Constant temp 360 degree oil, 1 min 15 sec deep dry perch, 2 min 45 sec walleye, both at room temperature, Perfect every time. Never any left. Cook like the pros!
