  1. Water has been dirty bright colors have been best. Bay rats candy corn, chrome veggies, and coho killer...In spoons glow frog, and silver with orange have been best for me. Anything that is bright that they can find in the dirty water. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I think either would be good. I have been fishing east of oak orchard and the browns and cohos have been really good. And last weekend in that nasty brown mess we skirted the edge of it in 12 to 15 fow and got a boat load and even a nice mature king. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. How much ?
  4. In my opinion and that's all it is. But i am basing it on how i have seen Lake Ontario change over the 35 plus years i have been fishing it. This lake used to be very nutrients rich and always had some color. A lot of things have changed that. Zebra mussels, restrictions on fertilizers farmers use, new rules on phosphorus, and others have effected this lake. It has slowed the algae blooms, made the water clearer and in turn hurt the plankton and bait fish that feed on it. I don't care what anyone says the clear water is not healthy water for fish life.Ok now to why I think the high water and higher volume of run off is good for the lake. Right off the bat the inshore fishing for browns and cohos has been very good this spring and mostly because the water is not gin clear. Last night i fished and did very well and saw more bait on the beach than i have in the last few years. Fish spit up 2 different year classes of alewife, gobbies, emeralds and even a stickleback. Now to the long term effect all the dirt that is getting washed in from run off and from the wave action on the shore that has been dry for years. In all that dirt has to be some nutrients and I am hoping it will help the plankton, and in turn the bait fish. The DEC is very concerned about the bait fish, the mild winter and this run off might be our savior of our bait fish.
  5. I have been fishing lake Ontario since they put salmon in it. They are not that hard to catch don't over think it. The biggest trick is fishing where the fish are. And as far as learning fast best way is find someone willing to take you a few times to get the basics. Either hire a charter or befriend some one that fishes and can go with you or you can go with a few times. One of the problems is the spring brown trout fishing, summer fishing and fall fishing all are different. Take some time read up some and most of all you can't catch any sitting at the house get the boat in the water and keep trying. Good luck Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. I have owned Lowrance since the X15 paper units and I had 2 of mine go bad this spring, After dealing with customer service and getting no help except an offer to buy a unit at a discounted price to only find out it did not come with a traducer and by the time you added the traducer it was only $10 off retail. Now i will never put another piece of there electronics on any of my boats. Plus I have found most other brands are way more user friendly. If you want a lower end high feature units look at the Garmin units, and i had one dealing with customer service and they were glad to help me. And there unit is way easier to use.
