  1. There’s a limit of 50 unless you’re in Jefferson County. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Unless things have changed recently, there is a limit in perch. It’s something like 50 per day, but still a limit. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Made for a good supper, too. Even my super picky eater of a 5 year old liked the perch I caught. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I’ve caught 2 pike on senkos. Both were green (pumpkin?). Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Took my oldest out for a quick fish tonight. Ended up near Eel Bay and he landed his first ever keeper smallie, and he did it all by himself. And I landed my first ever drum. And I filleted my first ever fish tonight, too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. It's a good day if I'm out with friends and not at work. Anything past that is just icing on the cake.
  7. My 7 year old LOVES fishing, but my 5.5 year old would rather be inside on his tablet, so it took a little convincing to get him to give it a try. I picked them up early from daycare, stopped for drinks and snacks, and he ended up having a lot of fun and wants to do it again. It definitely helped that he caught the first fish (that his older brother helped him unhook and release). He even lipped and released the bass that I caught on a bad cast.
  8. Dumb question from a newb: what’re these fleas you’re talking about? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I'm looking for places to take my kids fishing. I know about Conesus Lake and Vitale Park, and I'm wondering how the bank fishing is on Honeoye, especially around Sandy Bottom Park, and Honeoye Creek in that area. Is it worth taking them during the summer? They're ~6 and 7, so their attention spans are pretty short, so having to work hard for the fish is not idea. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I found this reel while on a bike ride today. The rod it was attached to was broken in multiple places. The reel has a bit of road rash and a couple small cracks that I’m attempting to repair. What rod would you put this reel on? I was eyeing a 7’ Ugly Stick for it, but I’m open to other options as well. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Smallies will usually be in 30-35 FOW on sholes and western points of islands. A drop shot rig with adequate weight works great (I’ve had to go up to nearly a full ounce in strong current areas). Works work really well, and I’ve also had decent luck with Senkos. If using worms, keep the off the bottom or you’ll be catching gobies most of the day. That’s why the drop shot rig works well. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Removing the spillway would remove the prime habitat. It's retaining the water in there so that they CAN spawn there.
  13. A lot do make it over the spillway. I'd imagine many of the ones that can't make it over will spawn in the creek below the spilway, along with the walleye.
  14. Pike are moving pretty good now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Also got to see a bald eagle while there yesterday. When we got there, we were the only ones there. By the time we left, the place was pretty packed, so try to time it so you’re not on top of other people. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. At the inlet now and seeing pike and eye just below the dam. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I was down there Monday and didn’t see anything yet. My sister-in-law posted that they saw some Saturday/Sunday. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. I'm pretty sure all water in this area is ice-free at this point.
  19. Why is your mechanic closed?
  20. Question for those of you that have fished tournaments; I see a lot saying “no frozen fish”. How the heck do you hero your fish from freezing?? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Reports are saying a couple people fell through in Sodus. My guess is they were flirting with the edge. There was a ton of people out on Conesus at the north end today. South end shows a lot of open water still. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. I just recently moved back “home”, landing near the north end of Conesus Lake. In doing so, I’m trying to find easy access places to take my 2 sons fishing (ages 5 and 6). While browsing Fishbrain, I saw a listing for Livonia Reservoir. Looking at the map it appears to basically be a pond. Does anyone know anything about it, or access to it? Barring that, does anyone have any suggestions for easy access/easily fished small bodies of water that are shore fishable? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. For a cold rainy day, it was a lot of fun, especially once I started catching them.
  24. They’re all rainbows? Man I suck at identifying them. The biggest of them had really bright red spots on it which made me think brook. (We didn’t keep any of them)
  25. My dad and I have been fishing Springwater Creek, the inlet to Hemlock lake for the past couple years trying to latch onto a trout, something neither of us have done. The monkey key is finally off our back after 3 years. I THINK I landed 1 brook and 2 rainbows. Can anyone confirm?
