  1. Hello All. I am coming to Oak Orchard for my first time. Usually fish OLCOTT. What's the best launch to use? Thanks. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. WOW biggest steelhead I've seen I think. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Jeremy, what do you to get Lakers? Ice never caught one in 3:years of fishing LO. This would be good plan B when Salmon can't be found. Thanks. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Went out from 530 to 8pm. Stopped at 250 FOW. Water Temp at surface everywhere was 63. Cold water moved in I guess. The last time I was out it was 74. Trolled out to 300 then back to 190. Caught one steelhead in 220. Saw some bait there where I got the steelhead. That's all folks. Another slow one. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I post Every trip because I find it helpful when others do so. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks so much for posting the report. I went on the 9th and it was slow. I was hoping someone would give an Olcott update from the weekend. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Went west about 2 or 3 Miles. Fished from 130 to 200 fow. 74 degrees surface, and down 45 feet had about 53 degrees. Lots of bait and saw a few fish down 35 to 40 on the screen. Caught two small Cohos and lost two. One on spoon on the downrigger, one on flasher fly with diver lost one on a 100 copper. Slow afternoon, but beautiful. At one spot I found 48 degrees down 50. That was in about 170 FOW. Some guys at ramp pulling out at same time went east. They also had slow afternoon with only a steelhead and Laker as I recall. Hopefully the Kings will return from wherever they are. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Thanks I'm going 6/9 hopefully we will find something. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I realize you already bought the 15 hp and you got hot great price. But for those who might use this thread as a reference in the future: there will be no difference in the speed generated from a 9.8 versus a 15 ho motor. There is s formula that is used to determine this. If you can't get on plane you will kit be able to achieve anymore speed with the bigger motor. I know this is hard to believe but I guess this is true. Based on drag. So for those who are making this decision in the future, do some research.

  10. I bought the lowrance outboard autopilot and HDS 7. They work perfectly. But, I would not buy again for the fact you cannot get the units repaired, as I understand it. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Yeah I did my own after watching Danger Marines video. I made my own puller. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Could this be used to change lower unit oil in an outboard? I cannot get the drain screw out, but I can remove the vent screw. 9.8 tohatsu. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Great Question. I'm in my 5th year of Salmon Fishing and still can't figure out where to go each time. I read the recent reports. I try to find preferred temps. I've driven around looking for bait balls, I've attended the schools. Some days I do well. Other days I strike out only to see people cleaning coolers of fish. I have a fish hawk and itroll and everything else. It's a big lake. Lots of empty water. Do I look for a depth thermocline, vertical, or a horizontal thermocline where there's a difference in surface temp? Why do I sometimes have great days without seeing a single fish or bait ball on my screen? It's more like hunting then fishing. I believe I can catch them if I can find them. But that's the hard part. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Started out at 2 PM. Mouth of the harbor was 55 degrees. Soon turned into 43-45 degrees. Made a circle about 6 miles around to the west. No warm water anywhere. So I never wet a line. It was my first time out this year so I just checked my motors, and autopilot. Everything worked well, so there's that. Looks like the Bar is the place to be right now for warm water, and the fish.
  15. You're only hope is to install an autopilot. Went through same thing with my boat. Bought an autopilot and I'll never be without it now. Some ballast up front might help. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. The difference in the gun laws state to state is an actual violation of the Constitution. Called Infringement. Bill of Rights. Different question altogether. Anything not given to the Feds is reserved for the States and the People. But the Bill of Rights is not a list of authorizations granted to either the federal government or the states. It is a list of "the rights of the people", we possess. Rights that cannot be thwarted by the Government. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Masks work to some extent in my opinion. Remember at first they said don't bother because the healthcare workers needed them. Ok, so think about that. Now they are saying everyone should wear them. What changed? Supplies of masks are catching up. If they don't work, why in the hell are nurses screaming bloody murder that don't have masks. They certainly have some positive benefits apparently or the healthcare workers wouldn't be concerned about the shortages. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. My Walmart was packed. Transit Road Williamsville. About half the people had masks on yesterday. I have been wearing one in stores for weeks now because we have a fragile daughter. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. I plan to fish, I plan to hunt turkeys. I plan to go to the grocery store if I need something. I don't plan to feel guilty about it. I see absolutely nothing wrong with doing outdoor activities. So, we have someone telling us a kayak is ok, but my boat isn't. Good Grief.
  20. Just got my phone call returned this morning. The boat ramp is open. Launch at your own risk. No overnight docking without a reservation. Please don't ask me about the fish clean station, or the bathroom. He didn't say. Just assume and plan for them being closed. I will be social distancing on the lake soon, weather permitting.

  21. I think those who are dealing with it every day face to face have a skewed view of the reality of the Virus as far as death rate and the danger. You are on the Frontline and if you are in a hot spot, you're perception is based on that. I respect doctors and nurses and all who expose themselves to give care to others. I believe far more people have the virus, or had it and recovered. Therefore, the rate of death is comparable or even less than the Flu. We already know the models were way off. Predictions of 2 million deaths have been lowered to 60000. The US had 61000 flu deaths in 2017. So, while I appreciate your service, I don't think you see the big picture, because you are in the hot spot. We need to open the economy before we go into a depression. Sweden is a good example. California has far fewer cases than NYC though Chinese travel to CA is far more frequent. Why? Could it be immunity? Bottom line: we can't allow millions to go into abject poverty and lose their homes, their livlihoods. We overreacted over an abundance of caution. It's time to recalibrate.
