  1. There are several apps available and some pay (less than 5 bucks) that give forecast and real time data. Seach Lake Ontario weather or Great Lakes Boating in your app store. The one I use pulls up to date data from NOAA The one I use is Lake Ontario-Marine Conditions also has links to a couple of web cams from various harbors. 

  2. I haven't been able to get out as much as I'd like this summer due to family events and must do home projects but managed to get out for a short trip this past Saturday. Went out of Golden Hill State Park, started in 200 fow, nothing on the finder but, as experience has told me set anyway and just fish. After trolling for an hour I and no activity I turned to my log and noted that this time of the year we've never caught a fish out far. In fact, all of our catches we're in close in less than 100' fow  so we headed in. At 90 fow the finder was lit with fish here and there. My son chose and set his famous "Warrio" spoon. An ugly purple and yellow piece and sent it down to 60 and within 20 min landed this beast. We had a great day fish, or no fish but happy to have the added bonus of this super catch! Good fishing everyone! 


  3. I was in your boat a few seasons ago when I started (no pun intended ) I learned a ton from right here and talking to charter captains and more experienced people offline. There are tons of resources available. Low and behold my catch rate has improved significantly. There are a lot of factors to consider depth, speed , lure choice and color and how to fish them. I suggest you read this site thoroughly, ask questions, most people are very helpful, than before you go out,  plan your trip , and fish it! 

    Good luck 

  4. I was there two weeks ago,no change. West launch was closed. East (nearest the coast guard station) was open and still underwater. They tried to collect my money at the gate to launch , I refused telling them I'm not paying if I can't launch. Found the launch still under water. They tried to do something with sandbags but water was carrying those away too. Hazardous launching because the concrete could damage your hull if the water is rough. 

    It's a crap shoot...
