  3. When you pay for storage you get free launch access. They don't launch boats.
  4. I kept a boat there a few summers ago. Pros: -Big savings on wear and rest of tow vehicle -Great location on Cayuga - less than 35 minute tow to Long Point or Union Springs -One of the nicest launches on the lake -Bears Bait and Tackle is right there for a fishing report/gear -Ethanol Free gas station less than 10 minutes down the road Cons -No "security", I always took my gear off the boat -The trees next to the lot make a mess, hope you have a cover -No shore power if you want to charge your batteries Hope this helps!

  6. Thanks Pap! Hope you hammer the walleyes this spring!
  7. Started slow inside, so we slid out to 80-100 FOW after an hour. Hammer Head Cowbells/Spin-n-Glow and Spin Dr/Fly on the bottom, Michigan Stingers and DW SS up high. Solid lakers, a couple small steelhead and a stud brown. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Capt Monty on the "Morningstar" for tog, sea bass and flounder. "Restless Lady" to go offshore Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Here's a couple sites you'll want to keep an eye on. Coastal Fisherman will report more consistently as the season gets going. Tidalfish is more focused on the Chesapeake, but if you want to get a charter out of Cambridge or Taylors Island, it's only about an hour from OCMD. Most of the action is on the boats trolling huge spreads (20-30 lines) with big parachute jigs and umbrella rigs, but occasionally guys will get one or two from shore. Check the regulations, like BS said, many of the bay tributaries are closed until June. http://www.coastalfisherman.net/ http://www.tidalfish.com/ Another option not to overlook while in OCMD is a trip with Capt. Monty on the Morning Star. He runs a 25 person max headboat for Tog, Sea Bass and doormat Flounder. Capt. Chris
  11. Capt. Carl, I believe it's 102 inches https://www.dot.ny.gov/nypermits/repository/perm71b.pdf
  12. Look at a Grady-White Islander 268. It's heavy enough to fish days that the Ranger wouldn't, but with an 8'6" beam and twin outboards, it's very trailerable (without permits!). It also has accomodations to stay a weekend on (flush head, full berth, etc.). Depending on how many times you fish the big lake per year, it may make sense to trailer and avoid some extra costs like slip fees, bottom painting, buying gas on the water, etc... Just my $0.02

  14. It makes a huge mess, but you'll always take a shot when it happens. Maybe the fish like the sound of 200 spoons hitting the deck, or maybe it's my colorful language. Hehe Joking aside, I like my special mate box for how easy it is to organize and how it presents the spoons. Just be sure to keep it right side up.

  15. Their BIGGEST downside is when they slide off a cooler... Don't ask me how I know... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
