    Plugging drains

    I always plugged my livewell intake for winter fishing. The dealer would put antifreeze in the lines during the winterization and a bolt that plugged the intake. I’d just remove it in the spring once we were safely above freezing. Maybe overly cautious but not a lot of work. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Same here. Got mine today & can't wait to try them. Thanks!

    New PB Smallie

    This is from the Elite tourney on the river this summer. Pretty interesting. https://video.bassmaster.com/detail/videos/top-videos/video/5713863086001/what-you-need-to-know-about-fizzing-smallmouth?autoStart=true&j=22253765&sfmc_sub=261679346&l=4153317_HTML&u=479532445&mid=10688361&jb=0 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I’ve run a few different colors. Nearly all my fish have come on the green glow with black ladder back though. Had some real good days in mid July last year on it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Nice job! I saw you guys launching. I had a strange day. Lots of bites on meat rigs but bunch of dumped fish, a wrapped up fish that took forever to get in and more tangles than I’ve had combined over the last couple years. Gonna have to be a little more careful the next time I run meat rigs by myself but there’s some nice fish out there. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Walleye fishing on Oneida Lake

    I took my Mom out on Saturday afternoon trolling cranks and we did very well. Lots of active walleyes in 30-40fow. I personally don't pull harnesses anymore. I find jigging or trolling cranks works a lot better on the eyes here. But this time of year you should do fine regardless of what you want to do. I'd also recommend that if you jig, jig aggressive, and if you troll, troll relatively fast. 2.5mph for cranks

    Shimano Talora Dipsey rods

    I use the 8 footers for my wire divers. Love ‘em but they don’t have the expensive tip like the longer ones. Just a plain roller. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I get a slip for the night and then park the trailer at the launch. It's a little more expensive but saves you 2 launch fees and some time in the morning. I've done it at Newfane, Ernst's and Wright's.

    Gas mileage

    Not an expert on the subject but based on my Ranger 621, that probably goes 3000 pounds all in, I’d recommend the 15. Dealer talked me into the 9.9 and it works pretty hard in chop and even more trying to get to musky speed. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    Not sure but that’s why I said that it was a few years ago. They may have improved it since then. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Oneida trip

    Awesome report and pics. I think I saw your boat out on the West end. I took Dad chasing bass yesterday afternoon for a few hours from 13:00. We had a blast. More stinking pickerel than we could count and a dozen nice bass split about evenly lmb/smb. Added a couple of walleye and a big drum for good measure. Pretty good fishing for flat calm and sunny. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
