  1. I haven't fished that body of water, but a technique that works on other bodies of water is vertical jigging. Search youtube and google for Detroit River walleye jigging for some good tips - the technique is the same - the line needs to be as vertical as possible. Heavy jig heads, 1/2 to 1 ounce with a 4"-6" rubber worm and a stinger hook are used. Sometimes tipping the main jig hook with a minnow (use a tiny piece of rubber worm as a keeper) or a piece of worm helps. Good luck
  2. where are you located for a local pickup?
  3. Unless the batteries are exact matches internally, they will eventually draw each other down. Putting them in parallel provides a path for current to flow between them, and it will, slowly draining both.
  4. I was boating on the St. Lawrence river this past weekend (30 May 2020) and went by the Wellesley Island station of the US Customs and Border Protection. There were a few agents at the dock, and i went over and asked them if i could transit downriver along Grenadier Island, on the Canadian channel side. Their words were " I would highly advise against it, if they catch you it will be a $750 fine.". They also anticipated that mid to late June is when the closure will be lifted, but weren't sure. I thanked them and went downriver on the US side. That being said, I have known people that have done more than a casual crossing across the border but have not gotten hassled - but not getting stopped doesn't mean that they won't stop you if they are out.
  5. Went out 02 June from 6:30pm-10:15 pm, just missing the rain. Fished between Buoy 130, Dunham Island, and Wantry Island. Depth was between 12-25 FOW. got 4 shorts, one keeper and lost a few nicer ones near the boat, also a couple small perch. Bucktails (black) and Bladebaits (perch) seemed to do the trick. Marked lots, and the ones that were boated were near ledges/transitions. Saw a few boats trolling what looked like bottom bouncers in the area, along with a few others casting. Did not see many other fish being caught. Good Luck
  6. how is the shore ice and depth at this launch? I have a 16.5 footer deep V and often this time of year I am fighting shore ice, or low water making launching a problem. Thanks!
  7. Owasco had a few fleas, just starting
  8. Lakeside41- I went out today(19 May). It was a bit rainy and windy. I tried a bunch of places from 6 to 20 feet of water. I fished about 4 hours. The few that I caught were spawned out. About 2 weeks ago the bite was hot. My guess is that it is way past prime. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. My dog and I launched out of Union Springs Sunday (08 April 2018). My cabin fever over-rode the urge to stay out of the crappy weather. The water at the launch is still a tad low, but I had no issues launching my 1650 Crestliner. By the time I found the perch I ran out of the time that I had. The snow and wind were pretty bad, there was only one other boat at the launch. Pickerel are everywhere....
  10. Maybe? If it’s a tiller type outboard that floats quickly off the trailer you may be able to. There seemed to be a lot of muck right off the ramp so if you don’t have to back way out it may be doable. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I looked at the Mandana launch. It is a town of Skaneateles operated launch but no 'public' parking. The parking by the firehouse has a bunch of signs saying parking for town of Skan residents only (sticker must be visible) with threat of towing. I don't live in that town so no joy there.... I haven't been able contact the marina yet to see if there is parking for non-residents somewhere.
