  1. It's supposed to pour Friday. I'm hoping that puts a beating on the ice.
  2. Here was the view this past Sunday
  3. Supposed to warm up a bit this week, I'm hoping that ice breaks up but my Dad was at our cottage today and it doesn't sound promising. We'll see. I'm itching to get out.
  4. Well there goes that idea, lol. I actually follow that guy on Instagram but I wasn't sure what pics were from when. Thanks for the info though.
  5. Is the bay all open or is there any ice left? Looking to maybe put the boat in this weekend if the ice is out.
  6. I'm not totally done yet but my last outting before pulling my boat last weekend was pretty uneventful. Not even a hit. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I actually really like the Lews Carbon Fire speed spool, I think it's a great reel for the $80 or so price tag. Although I have two, and one runs a lot smoother than the other. But they have a good casting distance regardless. I actually like them better than the Lews tournament series reel I have, although that one is technically way higher quality but it sucks to cast with. The centrifugal brake system ensures pretty much zero backlash, but the casting distance is awful Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Nice fish. They look surreal in the water when they are that big Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Quality over quantity then. I fished a bit this past Saturday and it was slow and windy. Which has been the going rate since late August for me. Landed a few though, biggest in the 3lb range so really nothing too exciting. I'm about ready to call it for the season til April or so.

  10. Nice Tman. I dunno what's better, the bass or your hat. What was the water temp at? I haven't been out in almost a couple weeks but will probably shoot for Saturday. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Water level is crazy low this year, but we've seen it lower at our cottage. Luckily at the end of our dock we have about 10ft of water. Seems to me the low water levels all summer and the crazy temps also spiked the weed growth compared to last year. I remember last October I was doing well Texas rigging flappin hog craws on a bass patrol swing jig and bouncing it along the bottom. Too many weeds to do that this year in the same spots. Spinnerbaits are a favorite too. No better way to cover water in my opinion. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I fished Fair Haven last Saturday - decent conditions and the water dropped to around 65, from 75 the week before. I too got skunked, and that's been quite a pattern down there lately for me. Still hoping once the water gets into the 50s the fish will turn on. I keep my boat on a hoist down there and the water level is making me a bit nervous. If it goes down much more then I'll have to pull the boat earlier than I wanted to. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Anyone getting into it yet? It's been pretty quiet in the bass section so far this Fall, which in my opinion is the best time of year for bass. Still waiting for the water to drop in temp some morethough. It was a long summer of finesse fishing for me...way too long. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Fish the canal banks, jig the rock lines. This will produce more bass than perch but it can still be fun, just don't be the Dad who hooks a worm a foot under a bobber and lobs it out into the middle and stares at it for an hour and wonders why the kids think you're boring.

  15. I bought my Fortrex new off Ebay from some marine store in NJ. Free shipping and no tax, can't beat that. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
