  1. Thanks for asking ! #1 Color rules in Lake Ontario and can change by the hour ! Start with chartreuse run the gamut ending on black/purple ; starting with body baits then spoons 1 [ that bite changes every year so you may be on your own unless you can get some reliable information ] Unlike salmon which tend to be nomads brown trout are often resident so you may have to find them ! Always start in close ie. 10 fow first light light tackle 6 to 10 lb. test and quality terminal tackle ie. SPRO ! Boards will keep the tackle away from the boat ! Then move out until you get one or watch the other boats ; then move out until you get one and stay there ! Most of our browns have been caught on riggers with long leads ! You can read " Keating on Kings " by Captain Dan Keating with several later editions for basic information but he fishes out of Lake Michigan !
  2. There must be a lot of them for that much shooting ! Hunted coyotes for many years nd never saw anything like this !
  3. No PROVEN health hazards to eating fish from Lake Ontario !
  4. Less can be more ! Tangles has ruined more than one AM !
  5. The stomach contended of the fish we caught reflects the same ; mostly alewife and a few smelt !
  6. Careful what you pick ! Some are deadly !
  7. Ditto on closing the thread ! This is going no were IMO !
  8. Not sure of the " same nonsense " you refer to King Davy ! The fact as I posted has not happened ! Very few Atlantics are being caught in Lake Ontario ! I do not fish the " tribs " so I have not comment !
  9. Asposted pick your days and get a weather report before going out in Lake Ontario ! Once it gets scary it stops being fun !
  10. Ditto on the Atlantic ! Their plan has not worked to date !
  11. ps. I hope the birds were tested for the COVID 19 virus before they crossed the boarder LOL !
  12. Not seeing the huge flocks since we could shoot them in Ontario !
  13. Ditto on the cormorant cull Captain Vince !!!
  14. The zebra mussel changed the ecology of Lake Ontario in ~ 1994 forever !
  15. Ditto on a " great bunch of fisherpersons " !
  16. I usually run a fixed cheater with a SpinDoctor / fly combo ! Never had major problems !I
  17. I went with a 9.9 Yamaha kicker on my 16 ft. Starcraft ; probably the best investment I have made on that boat !
  18. Just used the plugs and wired them 12 volts IMO !
  19. You can also change the prop with less top end with a faster low end ! [ did this with my OMC 70 hp.with better control of trolling speed ]
  20. The monster kings have gone with the arrival of the zebra mussel which changed the ecology of the great lakes IMO !
