  1. Much thanks to Dale Lane, Lt Matt Lochner, and all the other volunteers and sponsors that made another Yates County youth hunt an overwhelming success to all that participated. Unfortunately I was not able to get a gobbler within range of my hunter(which this year happened to be my best friend/co-boat owner’s daughter). But we all had a memorable experience including a 200 yard crawl through an alfalfa field to get 35 yards from two toms that were just to wary for us. Lots of gobbling and encounters both days tho so I think she’ll be out again. This is my 6th year “guiding” for this program and I can’t tell you what an honor it is to be a part of. Congrats to all!

  2. Anyone use anything special to store their trolling spoons in while out on the kayak? The special mate boxes are just way too bulky in the kayak and the standard stowaways can’t keep the spoons separated well enough. I was thinking about ordering some of the Amish Outfitters spoon pouches and trying them out but have never seen or used them in person. Anyone have any recommendations??

  3. That was a long cast on a spinning rod then closing the bail. 6# mono spool to lure. Ultra light reel with ML 7’ rod Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Got out for the last hour tonight. 1/1 off Webster Park. Man o man the water is low. Rattlin Rogues were hitting bottom 300yds off shore. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. We’re still about a month out from typical smelt action. 44 degrees is optimal before they start running. Niagara River is 36 right now. Need some warm rains before that picks up. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Decent afternoon at the south end of Conesus. Private access just south of the Beachcomber. They definitely preferred the suckers over the shiners. Shoulda got pics of the cast iron over the campfire fish fry. Next time!
  7. Price? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. General consensus is the water is so low that the fish can’t get in and out from the lake. Channel is ‘clogged’. That’s just what I read on here and IceShanty tho. Haven’t been out there myself. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Last time the west branch froze up(4years ago?) it seemed to be the glory days of laker fishing where anyone that could get out to 40fow could have the time of their lives. Which lasted pretty much the whole season if I remember correctly. Has things changed in the lake since then? Minus the west branch not freezing up part.

  10. “Bait Master” in Springwater. His name is Al. Great guy and great bait. Price a month ago was $15 for one or $12 for 5+. I know they were in high demand at the time and he was a little backed up with orders, but he was still planning on keeping up with demand as best as possible.

  11. Thanks for the report. Hard getting info from the diehards out there. Can’t blame them tho. Great job grinding it out and finding the fish. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Awesome job! Considering doing the same on Sunday with some buddies. Has to be rewarding going in blind and finding a bite. Did you guys have machines or did you hoof it? Can be an intimidating lake with no machine. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Wow... I want to be happy about the influx of people interested in the sport but they make it so hard. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Boo yah. Well done Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Canadice yes. Bring spud. Thin spots will always exist on this lake. Hemlock not sure. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
