  1. Small jigs are usually a good option. I like to tip them with Gulp minnows. They have 1" and 1.5" sizes that are great for perch fishing. One of these days I am going to try drop shotting trout flies. I would imagine that nymph imitations would be deadly along weed lines. When perch are really active, they'll hit on alot of artificials that you wouldn't expect, crankbaits and inline spinners for example.
  2. Pretty similar experience at the mouth of Oak Orchard creek this weekend. Lots of baitfish around the mouth of the creek. I assume they are alewives. The bass and perch fishing was unreal for the first few hours of the morning. Once the sun got up high everything shut down though. The fish were gorging on bait fish. Every fish was spitting up bait while they were fighting. Seemed like it was starting to slack off today. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  4. Now there is a way we can all hit him. Let his sponsors know what we think and whether or not we will continue to support them . Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Montreal is flooding too, and they are downstream of the dam. There is nowhere to drain the lake more quickly. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I'd feel alot better about this if it was a straight up effort to reduce government spending. But it looks to me like the moneys not spent here will be diverted into significantly increasing our military spending. And I don't see that as justified right now. If we've got a choice between spending it on improving the lakes or more military spending, I'll take the former right now please.

  8. Rainbow trout are often called bows. Short for rainbow.

  13. Regarding shooting from just off the road..... I was a Sportsmans Education Instructor for the DECs hunter safety program for awhile. This is going back maybe 15 yrs. At the time we were teaching that you couldn't shoot from the maintained portion of the road. That included the shoulder, drainage ditches or any part maintained, which includes areas mowed by the highway department. I suspect each Officer is going to have a different threshold of where they will ticket. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. I make some of my own spinners. As far as sizing goes...... In my experience each body and blade maker seems to have their own ideas about size. Unfortunately, I have found that the only good solution is to buy a variety of sizes and see what works well together when you've got them all on front of you. Most of the time I've found that the bodies are sold by weight (and they are reasonably accurate) and the blades by size. No 2 makers have the same size 2 for instance though. Best I can say is buy the weight body you want and then use a blade that is as long as the body. That seems to give mine the best balance. And twirl them in your fingers at various points during assembly. They should hang down straight and twirl straight. If they wobble when you twirl them they wont spin right in the water. Tweek them as needed to get them to twirl straight in your fingers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. In my opinion, it is a complete waste of energy to complain about people keeping tigers and pike in waters that are not being managed as trophy fisheries. And not all lakes should be managed as trophy fisheries. If it bothers you, You are better off fishing other waters that are managed as trophy fisheries. This is not unlike the people who complain about anglers keeping trout in the tribs. The DEC is managing it with the expectation that a percentage of caught fish are kept. Its only a problem because of your expectations. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
