    Trail camera reviews

    I use wildgame innovation cameras. $40 each. Dick's or Field and stream. Work perfectly. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    AR-15 (.223) ammo for deer?

    For longer bullets you faster twist to stabilize them. Most centerfire 22 caliber rifles do not have a fast enough twist for let's say the Sierra VLD bullet, and I suspect the 75 grain may be too long as well. No more than 1 on 8 twist to stabilize the longer bullets. Many 22 Cal's have a 1 and 14 twist, and won't stabilize longer bullets. For deer in the 223, use a 60 grain bullet of heavy construction, such as the Barnes copper TTS, or a nosler partion. Don't use VMAX, and the like, they are designed for varmints. For many years I used an 85 grain hollow point in my 243 with devastating effect. However, it was the Sierra GAMEKING, which is constructed with a heavier jacket then their part numbers for varmints. I have a single shot .223 that I will loan out to my nephew for his son to use. So I am also needing to get the right bullet for the job. I do think the 223 is a little light for deer, but by using the right bullet and good shot placement it will suffice. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    I buy the cheapest cameras I can get. Usually about $40 each. I cannot afford to have people steal expensive cameras because I hunt on public land. It is sad there are scum among us that will steal from their fellow hunters. I have two wildlife innovation cameras that work great. I also have a primos camera. Again each costed about 40$.

    Tie bar system for kicker motor

    I installed the lowrance outboard autopilot in my boat last year. Works great. I had to buy the HDS to control it. My Elite 4 chirp apparently would not work. So I would be careful and make sure. My only concern is if either ever break down, I hear lowrance has no repair. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Tie bar system for kicker motor

    I'm not the OP but this is the best way. You need the Big motor in the water for it's additional rudder action. Otherwise, in rough water you will not have adequate control. From experience. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    As an FAA Aviation Safety inspector I can tell you most aircraft accidents are a result of a number of things that line up to create the accident. I assume boating accidents are the same. Weather is a factor in many. But it could also include equipment failure, inexperience or lack of skill, or possibly a catastrophic failure. We look at the Man, the Machine, and the Environment. I hope we can be provided with conclusion of the investigation results for this one as well as last year's tragic loss where apparently the boater was trapped while trying to get life jackets as his boat quickly sank. Knowing what happened is important for prevention. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. We went out to 375 fow. Trolled for an hour, turned north until we hit about 450. Nothing. Pulled up, went in 400. Set down again, took an 14 lb king, my nephew's first. Wondered if they were in shallow so we went in to 250 and two smaller Kings. 7 pm by then so we had to quit. Glad they were able to get a few because I thought we were going to be skunked after 2 hours of nothing. Still wondering what I should have done to get into them better, but that's fishing.

  9. Going today for first time in 2 weeks. Taking two folks who never fished. Last time out we fished 400 FOW. But saw fish on screen in 80 to 100. Maybe staging now? To be honest I have had ZERO luck on staging fish. So, can I still go out deep and get the younger salmon? Or are the shallow fish biting? Thanks. I will post a report as always. Nobody on the boat is tournament fishing. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    web site

    My phone app (droid) has been very slow last month or so. Also for the LEU site. It's probably my phone, but this is a recent issue, do I don't know. Also, on my home computer, again, a problem only starting the last couple months, when I type comments it is very sketchy, doesn't register the key strokes. Have to keep clicking the mouse back on the text box, and restriking keys again and again. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Top 3 atommik flies

    Yes, the site's labeling is confusing. Also, when I receive my flies, all they have is a number, so I have no idea what they are. Frankly, I don't want to go back online to find out when I have the fly right in hand, and all I have is a number that means nothing. On the other hand, I always end up with flies and lures out of the package and I have no idea what they are anyways, do I guess it doesn't matter!

    Wilson 7/29

    We fished off Olcott towards Wilson 7/23 to 7/29. Had a real good week. We spent all our time from 350 to 500 FOW. Best was about 400 to 440 for us. Temps and currents were crazy all week. There some fish inside at 80 to 100 fow in that warm water, we discovered on our last day. But we didn't fish them. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. 7/23, fishing was great in 350-380 FOW. Got 5 beauties. Went back today, same place and fishing was slow. Landed 2 kings, 2 Steel, but lost about 8 fish today. Could not hold them. Water temps today were weird....seemed warm out where we were. surface 69, and way down at 80 or 90 was 50-55 as I recall. Back at it tomorrow.

    Olcott- is a temp dock available?

    I called the marina and they said for a Boat my size 22ft, a temp dock would be no problem if we need to get off the lake. I called 778 5462. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Olcott- is a temp dock available?

    Thanks. I picked the wrong week for my friend to come from Idaho to fish, but we'll be fishing in the rain dodging thunderstorm's. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
