  1. I want to know what Broke off finds out too. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Went to Buffalo Harbor Saturday. I got gas that morning. Motor started but would only run a few minutes and quit. It would only start when choked. I did this about 6 to 10 times then gave up and brought it home. Pulled plugs, all six looked good, but all were wet. Reinstalled, and tried it, and Motor started and ran very rough with lots of smoke, more than I've ever seen. Eventually the smoke cleared. Retried a few times and it starts right up now. Any ideas on what would cause this? Evinrude E175ENC. has the VRO with oil mix tank. This is a 1992 Motor. Bought this boat 4 years ago and this Motor has started and ran flawlessly every time. I always use REC 90 gas. I'm taking it out on lake this morning to try it again. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I'll be trying this for sure. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Thanks, I was wondering about that wind shift. Maybe if the shift to the west occurs later, a morning trip will be ok. If I launch at Fort Niagara I guess if it gets too bad I can go into the river and fish for something. Never fished the river. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Looks like they are saying 1 to 3 feet from Niagara River to Hamlin Beach. This means actual 2 to 6 footers which is probably too rough to fish. But I'm wondering if you think it may be calmer out of Fort Niagara, as opposed to Olcott? Your thoughts are welcomed. Thanks in advance. Trying to get out Sunday if possible.

  6. Thanks I didn't have any spro swivels so I twisted them together and covered them with heat shrink. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Had a huge tangle July 4 with my 300 copper and a wire dipsey. Had to cut out 30 feet section of Copper in the middle. Can it be spliced back together so I have. 270 copper? I just twisted it together to get it back on the reel and retrieve my gear. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Put pool noodle on handle to prevent loss. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I use a round bend swivel always. Stainless ball bearing eagle claw fairly big. Can't remember size #. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Thanks Gill! Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. 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
  12. WOW biggest steelhead I've seen I think. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. I post Every trip because I find it helpful when others do so. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Thanks I'm going 6/9 hopefully we will find something. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. 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.

  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
