  1. how old is the battery? I change mine every four years. sometimes the plates get loose and that is not good. boat batteries take a lot of abuse.
  2. how are the fleas on lake Ontario? I havn't been in a couple of weeks.
  3. I like the eight inch for the spring and summer. once the kings start to stage I have some luck with the 11 inch. there is a lighted version which I am going to try.
  4. no question you ask is dumb. I am 64yrs old and have been trolling for trout since I was probably about 5 yrs old and I learn something every time I fish. whaler1 answered your question correctly.
  5. had a decent day with 3 rainbows and a small king along with about 6 other hits. best depth was 220 t0 250. down temp was all over the place. a beautiful day on the water.
  6. if you don't mind me asking how deep of water were you fishing. I am coming up to the oak tomorrow and would like some idea of where to start.
  7. eagle claw makes a good dipsey rod that you can use with wire. I always feel better putting on twill tip. check on fishusa they have some good stuff.
  8. I don't know where you are fishing but I would definitely fish the western basin if possible. .set your lines at different depths and stick with the stuff that works. google ace charters he has a lot of good tips.dont try and do to much until you get it figured out.
  9. were you east or west of the oak and how far away from the oak. thank you!
  10. if you are within driving distance of silver lake marine near Perry NY they have a good canvas man. 585-237-5185
  11. fished the oak today and only two hits. tried everything! fished from 40 out to 135. hardly any marks on the graph. water temp ranged from 46 to 50. tough day for me
  12. Try bass pro or fishusa.
  13. not sure if he is open but you can try Fishy Business in Branchport. 607-368-2306
  14. According to the LOC website the 2020 spring derby has been cancelled. LOC SPRING DERBY CANCELLED It is with great regret I am cancelling the 2020 Spring LOC Derby. We have been deemed “non-essential” and am unsure if our classification will be lifted by May 8th. For there to be a Derby, there is a symbiotic relationship of businesses that need to be up and running. Unfortunately, most currently also have the “non-essential” business classification. There needs to be tackle stores and Marinas for weigh-in stations and registration outlets. Restaurants and diners to feed people, motels, hotels, bed and breakfasts, and campgrounds for people to stay. Groceries, fishing tackle, propane, ice and maybe a little beer needs to be purchased, along with all the wholesalers who supply these items. Charters need to be hired, boats need to be bought, and launches need to be open. I have worked with many of these businesses since 1989, and I can assure you that even though our governor deems us non-essential, nothing could be further from the truth. It is essential for the survival of many of the businesses that support this industry to get back to work as soon as it is safe to do so. As consumers, I understand that fishing Lake Ontario is not essential to anyone staying alive. The logic that you can’t go fishing with family or friends on Lake Ontario but can go to the local supermarket that has been exposed to every virus and/or bacteria from every household in the area escapes me. For those that have purchased a Seasons pass we will refund $30 and keep you in the Summer and Fall events. If you entered the Spring Derby only, you can get a refund or transfer your entry into the Summer or Fall event. If you want a refund or to update/change your registration, please email the Derby at [email protected] I want to personally thank all the loyal anglers for their continuing support year after year. Without it, the Derbies would not be possible. Looking forward to making the Summer LOC Derby the best ever. Dave Chilson LOC Derby
