  1. Coho for sure, but still a nice fish! Great job!!
  2. Prayers from a Canadian friend. Dads are special people.
  3. I remember reading quite awhile ago mussels make up to 95% of the biomass in some European lakes.
  4. 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!!
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. Thanks. I'll look into it for sure. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.

  13. Good to hear! I've been keying in on Perch the last while, but miss those silver fish. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Anybody doing this? Seems the posts dry up after the salmon begin running Just curious re: the how's and the where's. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
