  1. Had a good morning sunday. Also let a 28” go.
  2. I also have been trying to learn the river eyes on my weekends in the islands. My uncle got a camp this year up there so I visit as often as possible. Had some decent success but the fishing is inconsistent at best most days. The constant northeast wind never seems to help either. All the bigger walleyes in the photos were released with the biggest so far this year being 30” and 11 lbs.
  3. Yeah I’m all for the study of the Ontario eyes as their movements kind of fascinate me but it does suck to see fish dead
  4. Do all the fish they net die? Just look it in the pictures
  5. I’ve wanted to get up there the last few years around opener but with high water and unpredictability it just hasn’t worked out. Sounds like it’s been difficult at best
  6. How was the bite on opener up there if you don’t mind me asking
  7. If there’s some available I’m also interested in the same thing
  8. Hey guys so I’m thinking about trying BRB this weekend at some point. Might wait until Monday for the crowds to die down but I’ve never actually fished it. I’ve read some articles and old reports. Is the delta of the river the best bet to start? I’m not a troller. I like to jig mostly but I’ll throw cranks and sticks if I have to. Just looking for any basic tips. I know it’s a popular spot
  9. Here is what I was talking about. https://www.google.com/amp/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.4191585
  10. I also believe they did actually stock Lake Ontario recently on the Canadian side. I remember reading something about them releasing so many walleyes into the Lake
  11. I'll be honest. In 20 years of fishing(I'll never claim to have the knowledge that someone much older than I has) I've never seen the perch population struggle in the big water I fish. I hit the big spring runs of the st Lawrence and on Lake Ontario. Despite no limit in those areas not one year have I said man the numbers are down. Every year seems just as amazing as the last. Some days you can catch hundreds of pounds. I'll only sell occasionally in the spring and that's it. Otherwise I've never kept more than 50. However in smaller bodies of water inland I could see why a 25 fish limit would be smart. The big water I think can sustain the population but the smaller bodies of water I could see overfishing create more of as issue just an opinion on the matter
  12. I'm sure based on what you're saying you guys self impose a slot. I personally make a lot of trips to the river in summer for walleyes and rarely keep any larger walleyes. Unless the fish is hurt on the fight or I cannot get it revived which has unfortunately happened before I release any walleyes over 8lbs. If I could pick and choose I'd take 3 just barely legal walleyes and catch one ten pounder for the fight a picture and a release. I have fortunately seen a few guys putting the big walleyes back this year. Love seeing it
  13. We caught one like that off of cape last summer. Nice looking walleye but it barely had any white meat to it
  14. It's unfortunate because we all love talking about fishing, fish, the water, our catches, but in today's age where when you post on here or any of the other sites or groups you're telling thousands. It's easy to kill spots which in turn has led fisherman to be a lot less talkative in many ways.
  15. I think people have overestimated the gobies effect on walleyes out the gate. I fished through their introduction on Lake Ontario when the gobies boomed at first and the fish didn't eat them. It took a few years for nature to even out and begin feeding on them. Perch seemed to quickly but walleyes on the lake and the river took awhile. Now that they've adapted years later the walleyes seem to love the gobies and be one of their main sources of food. They're affecting the fishing but in terms of creating a different walleye on Oneida it's going to take awhile. I'm no scientist just my opinion based on fishing Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence

    I have recently taken the ideas from the big walleye jigs to perch and smaller walleye/bass hair jigs. Coming out well and really enjoying tying jigs

    Prof T I agree. The only thing about those gobies I like are how healthy the walleyes are off of them.

    Thanks guys. Over the winter with more time I may make enough to sell some. Those weights vary from 1-2 oz. if the wind and current are working together some nights can be tough to jig

    SLR guys I do some extensive walleye fishing on the SLR in late summer and while most people troll I prefer jigging. I recently started making my hairjigs for it and figured I would share with some of you guys. Can't wait to land an eye on my own jig
