  1. I am all for it & will be calling to get my diary so I can participate ..... thanks for the info..... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. They did mention it was due to limited parking Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. My friend showed me on FB a group (CV Bass) that got a letter from DEC saying no more open tournaments on waneta & Lamoka but only closed tournaments 11 boats or less.... not sure if this is all correct or what.... not trying to pass bad info..... just heard it so thought to mention to u all Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I was told by my buddy who is a huge bass guy that tournaments at waneta & lamoka will be limited to (I believe he said) 11 boats for 2017? Just thought I would mention that so as to avoid people wasting their time trying to book a tournament just to find that there is limited space. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I really wish they would stock both Lakes....it would make a lot of sense & cut down on pressure at waneta ..... I only get there a few times per year & haven't bothered to venture to Lamoka due to lack of time....how has everyone done when targeting them at lamoka? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. The lake is VERY low....Otisco lake marina launch is still open ( I heard the other launch is closed)....& u can only get boat off on 1 of their 2 ramps ( the ramp that is rarely used is open).....& you either need to power load or get wet.....good luck...

  10. Muskys Anonymous....[emoji848] where should I start?....I'm glad u r familiar w Neil DeGrasse Tyson.....I'm a fan of him too....& I have heard him use that quote....unfortunately for u in this case... u r providing info w o facts to back it.....& it's true whether YOU believe it or not......so the FACT is according to NYS DEC.....after examining scales from Tigers caught in Otisco a 37 inch fish was 8 years old.....& the world record taken thru the ice was 46 inches & 11 years old.....look it up.....now I realize this is a small sample size.....but.....that kinda blows your theory to shreds......I just want people who read this to know what the facts really r......it takes more like 8-10 years for a tiger to reach 40 inches......I am sure that u feel big talking down to people by referring to your education....& obviously u are an outdoor God .....but unfortunately u decided to chime in on something u don't know the facts about....tigers may grow up to 10 inches per year for the first couple years ( & that would be extraordinary).....but the growth rate slows significantly after a few years ( down to only a few inches per year)....where exactly did u get your info on growth from?....maybe u should find easier targets to argue with....???? Someone who won't fact check....I read everything I can get my hands on re: tigers....& I back my arguments w sound scientific data..... Go argue w another scientist ....maybe they will cower to your superior education...& take it easier on u........please do respond & dazzle me w your intellect Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Tigers do NOT reach 40 inch in 3 years.....DEC reports after examining scales of kept tigers proves that inaccurate....they grow fast & die young...( compared to pure strain musky) .... But not that fast
  12. My final comment is.....if you were fishing Otisco 10 years ago....u would know that the tiger fishing sucked at that point in time.....(for whatever reason....less alewife, introduction of zebra mussels , 30 inch to keep one etc) the Johnny come lately anglers don't realize how difficult it was to even catch a tiger then....let alone a big one....so they don't appreciate how much it has improved....now they stock about 11,000 annually & have raised the legal limit to promote a "Trophy" fishery.....some of us ( true ESOX anglers ) enjoy catching the big ones & r not thrilled when people frivolously speak of eating them. If people continue to "eat" them it could return to a lackluster fishery for tigers again....Of course it is your right to keep & eat one.....but to Most true musky guys....it is taboo...oh & BTW....yes I am calling the DEC guy from the video a hillbilly......did u watch it?....his grammar suggests that when he states " them look good". & to stir the pot a bit more.....IMO.....they should raise the legal limit at Otisco even more.....change regs to keep one Tiger per year per license & completely ban tip ups in winter...
  13. If people like Zach or myself & all the others who regularly fish for toothy critter kept a legal fish each outing there would be a significant reduction in the population....( so some people WHO HAVE TO PAY A GUIDE SO THEY CAN ACTUALLY CATCH SOMETHING......would not have as good a fishing experience with their child )....just a fact.....if U want to keep a fish ....that is up to u....( & I know Justin does try to release all tigers if possible...no beef there especially on a badly hooked fish).....but verbally attacking Zach bc he questions why so many keep & mishandle tigers is out of line......IMO.......Only Hillbillies eat musky.....period! ....eat up.....but be careful ...bc I'm sure u only have half a mouthful of teeth....don't choke pal....& keep the comments about violence to yourself Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. I caught one a few years ago.. ( it was also Memorial Day weekend) & she dropped a couple eggs on my seat while getting pics. Not sure if they were viable eggs or not.....I thought it was very interesting. I spoke w a fellow musky guy who is also a veterinarian & he has caught several hundred more than I & never seen that. He thought that could be the 1% that is not sterile....but wasn't sure if it was that or males that were actually sterile.....pretty cool tho.....nice catch fishin NY.....congrats!

  15. A couple years back I witnessed a 30 + inch tiger being hit by a giant tiger.....it let go before we got a good look at it but the smaller tiger was shredded & bloody on both sides.....also had it happen to a salmon at Seneca ( obv a pike there).... It's not common but def happen from time to time....a real cool thing to see firsthand.... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
