    Time to slow down and think

    Thanks to everyone for replying. The power of a few well chosen words is amazing. Ill do my best to rehab. I live almost on the shores of Lake St. Clair in Tecumseh.Front doors always open for you guys!!
  2. Hi Guys; First, it’s been a long spring. I wish everyone on this site a safe trouble-free year and full boxes. Hands down, the best site of its kind. Personally, not much fishing for me this year. On New Years Day has a stroke and a heart attack. Almost died. My two sons saved my life. Suddenly, things like legacies take on new and significant meaning. Give your families hugs and tell them you love them. You just never know. All the best. Dan Watkin (Tincandan)
  3. Coho for sure, but still a nice fish! Great job!!

    "Mussels" biomass problem

    I remember reading quite awhile ago mussels make up to 95% of the biomass in some European lakes.
  6. Muskies picking up in the river. Neighbor got 2 a few days ago. Heading out the end of the week and will post. Fish came on bulldogs, but everyone's throwing bull dogs, so no surprise!!
  7. Trolled the lake for a few hours yesterday. One fish about 45" on a chartreuse and white wiggle wart down 10 feet and back 15 off a rigger. The bite is starting to improve and only a handful of boats around. Just like this site so posted here!
  8. Just read Bill Hilts' fishing report, and apparently an 18 lb. King was caught at the mouth of the Niagara River. Maybe a good omen for the up-coming open water salmon season? Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Downrigger weights

    I have 2 Cannon Mag 10's. I assume I'm safe with 15 lb. weights as well? Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Must Watch Salmon Vid

    I think there should be some testing of the stocks being used for Lake O's Atlantic program, given how wide spread this virus appears to be. And what about the virus tipping into Pacific salmon species? Anyone heard anything? Asked anybody? Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Piscine reovirus

    Thanks for your reply, Captain Vince. Apparently in farmed Atlantic's in BC, the virus is suspected to affect upwards of 90% of the fish. It's rampant in Atlantic Canadian farmed fish as well. I don't know if any of Lake Ontario's Atlantic sticks are affected, or if the virus is capable of "tipping" into other salmon species. Affected Atlantic's are mostly asymptomatic until they are stressed. I'd imagine weak fish in the wild would simply die or be eaten. Wild fish in Norway are also apparently similarly affected. Potentially a concern is my point. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Up To 16ft Seas Forecast Thursday

    Wonder what the big lake freighters do? My brother-in-law works on one of those boats. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Piscine reovirus

    I just read an article on piscine reovirus. Apparently the virus is widespread Atlantic salmon populations. It causes the hearts of affected fish to become flabby, and greatly affects their ability to ascend rapidly flowing water. I can't help but wonder if the virus affects Chinook salmon. Has anyone come across any information in this regard? It might offer some additional explanations about why our salmon appear to be so unthrifty.
