  5. The reason the lake has green water is probably all the run off and high water. I know everyone hates the high water but it sure makes the lake heathy. Not only does the rain wash nutrients in to the lake from run off, but with the high water wave action has new shore to pick up dirt and wash it back in to the lake. Think about it normally the waves wash the same well washed rocks and does pick up much dirt or nutrients. But now when a wave even a small one crashes it hits me untouched areas. All that is washed in the lake. Then even when the water goes down most if it settles out and is there on the bottom for a while. So now we had it in 2017 some of that is still left then we get it again this year. My guess is this is very healthy for the lake. And as far as the salmon being spread out down the lake that one is mostly because lake Erie stayed cold so long this spring. With out the warm water flow at the West end the bait did not rush there like it normally does, it instead moved in to the colored water all along the shore that warms first. And the salmon just followed it . That's my take on it no clue if I am right but seems to sense to me . Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I talked to one of the people that are in control of the east launch and they don't have any plans of closing it right now. And it did not close in 17 even at it's highest.. they already added to the post that hold the floating docks in place.. The state is quick to close there's because they have now clue about launching a boat, and they don't care about local businesses. The one on the east side is run by the county and they don't want the local businesses to suffer. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I just got some blanks that he had never finished..The one on the far right was his light blank not hammered you don't see many of those any more and the one on the far left is a 66...I put split rings and hooks on half of the ones I got and the rest I might never fish with.. Great piece of Lake Ontario salmon fishing history.. His spoons are what most copied.. I still have some he hand made on his boat for me and those are retired and in hiding..

  8. It should be fine .. I been launching on east side.. it's a good launch and free..and no walk to trailer . No need for waders did not even need them before docks were in. Both are nice deep steep launch's and easy to use . Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. I can tell you we took the pens out, they were not easy to move but with 2 boats and taking your time it's not hard. Just slow. And if 50 % of them did not come back in the stream we saved a bunch...there were over 100 birds roasted in the trees just west of the ramp. And if we had let them go. In the stream and they did not scram fast as soon as it got light out in the am all we would have done is feed them. Also the night we did it the lake and stream were almost the same temp do to the cold weather ...and the lake had nice color from the winds the 2 days before...maybe some returned to the stream, but I bet alot of them spread out down the warm dirty water and saved them selves from the birds.. I am by no means an expert on fish but I have been fishing since I was born and spent tons of hours on the water, and have fished for just about every freash water fish in NY. Maybe what we did was a waste of time but there was only 2 boats and 6 people and we gave it our best effort, and did what we felt would increase the chances of as many fish as possible surviving.. also not many people would have used there boats to do this it's not easy on them the pens scratched our boats some but again my boat is made to be used and worth it if we saved a few fish so we all can enjoy them, wether it be lake fisherman or stream fisherman.

  11. Yes it's worth it to take them to the lake..I know it's not easy because I just di the steelhead pens but we did it at night and then by morning the lake had some chop so the fish got spread out..if you let then go in the stream they hang out and are a huge target. It took 2 boats per pen and about 4 hours to do it but I am sure we saved 1000's of fish Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. So your saying if there is 3 guys on a boat and a 3 man limit is in the same livewell, or cooler it's against the law? I can't see that being true...if so every charter boat on lake Ontario breaks the law every trip they always put all the fish in one cooler.

  14. Only reasons I don't do buckets is they are harder to store and I hate the noise they make when they hit the hull on an aluminum boat. I had used buckets years ago they do do the job. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I have a 19 foot alumicraft with a 90 and I can troll it down ok going in to the waves or on a flat lake.. but I run 2 bags all the time no matter what. It does 2 things let's you run a few more rpms and gives you way more control. I have a rope to the front of them hooked to my forward cleats and then a tail rope to the back cleats . And I fish by self all the time I put them out by just tossing them over one at a time and holding the back rope to get them to fill. The biggest trick is to not make the ropes to slack keep it so the bags are as far forward and you can and not have them pull out of the water, and the back rope tight so they can't wander under the boat. Mine the front of the bag is about even with the steering wheel . Or a little forward . The other thing I do is carry an extra set of front ropes all set and ready to go because they can wear on the side of the boat and break. More than once I have had to replace them on the water..also always run 2 one makes the boat pull horable to one side. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
