  1. Also be aware of ALL of Canada's boating laws. They are not tolerant of open containers..even empties in the trash. Fines are high and usually applied to everyone in the boat. Pistol type flares also banned. Do your homework.
  2. Sale pending Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Used 3 times, backpack style case, heats and carries easily. Auger has extra blades. Perfect for mobile angler. Located Wellesley Island / Abay. / Clayton area Call or text: 31 five 83 eight 040 six
  4. Still 300 ft here om the SLR, but you'd never know it!
  5. Very different. Eel bay itself is a lot of barren 8ft water, although there is decent structure around the islands that are there. There is a channel along Grindstone, runs from Canoe point, all along the west/south side between there and Picton that the guides drift a lot. I don't fish there, but I know guys who do which is why I'm willing to give it up😀😀. One thing for sure, you've got to be on bottom, and put your time in. Fishing is not fast and furious, when you get them its worth it.
  6. Sold Tough machine. Many extra parts. $575 Here's a link to my craigslist ad. https://watertown.craigslist.org/grd/d/wellesley-island-cub-cadet-126/6922785840.html

    Back at it 2019

    After 8 weeks since a cervical fusion surgery I finally got the OK to get back in a boat yesterday morning. Had her ready, launched in the afternoon and called Kevin. We fished the SLR 9 till 11 in really nice conditions, although you had to adjust for higher than normal current and be on the lookout for debris. Picked up 2 and lost a third half way to the boat. One of us got skunked but didn't really care because you realize just being part of it, after having it taken away, is more important than the tally in the livewell. That being said, I'm down 2 and plan to even the score ASAP! Tight lines
  8. Switched my bravo drive on a 26 wellcraft to magnesium anodes and couldn't believe how eaten up they got in one season. That's a GOOD thing. Bottom line, if your zincs still look like new, they're not doing much for you! They're called sacrificial for a reason. My source: https://www.boatzincs.com/
  9. A 27" is a lot of fish for Oneida...nice job!
  10. By the way, fishing alone at night the I Pilot remote is always clipped to the d ring of my inflatable vest so I know exactly where it is without fumbling around.
  11. I thought I "discovered" this trolling/steering technique, but it's used extensively on Erie. I've got an I Pilot trolling motor on the bow of a 19ft aluminum boat and a 4 stroke Merc 90 on the back. I run riggers, pull flatlines and drag some bottom bouncers, often alone. I deploy the I Pilot, aim it in the direction I want to go with its compass activated, and head for the console. I drop my 90 in gear, set the throttle where I want it (usually around 2.2 - 2.5 MPH speed over ground as I'm a walleye guy. Last I put a small bungee from the steering wheel to the windshield support to keep it straight. Now to the back of the boat, to set riggers or feed lines out. I( have a Troll Control on the 90 so I'm able to adjust rpm's in 10 rpm increments and I put a remote paddle switch for that in the back of the boat. I steer via the I Pilot remote and can record a track to retrace my steps if so needed, All my big motor does is provide thrust. Before the 4 stroke repower 2 years ago, I did the same thing using a 9.9 2 stroke. Works like a dream, and I'm always in the back of the boat with the rods.
  12. Typical bureaucratic bull. It's 1000 ft Lake Ontario, 300 ft on the river in Jefferson County, and 600 ft St Lawrence county. Must be that my shoreline is half a valuable as one in St. Lawrence county and less than a third those on the lake. Distance was locally determined by County Legislatures. Looks to me like they were relying on the GOOD SENSE of the boating public. Come watch the circus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
