  1. They should have included some estimates of the number of healthy salmonoids and trout fry that come out of that river. I'm not sure people realize how many fish we are getting in the lake are natural (I didn't until this year) and that river has a lot to do with it. It takes pressure off the limited resources for stocking, hatcheries, etc.
  2. Nice ! We were out from the Genny about the same depths this afternoon. 100-160 Pretty decent screens, found 48-52 degree water down fairly deep 80-110 feet down and tried to stay in that zone. Had more Molson's than hits but managed a 23lb king on silver/green flasher/fly. That joker ripped off a ton off line before we could turn him. Only boated one other fish, 8lb laker off the bottom. We saw a lot of them come up and look at our lures on the screen but we were going 2.5+ most of the time, probably a little fast for those lazy bastards. Had 2 other hits on meat but lost em. Lake was beautiful today, medium chop in about 5-10 mph NNW.
  3. Nice haul ! Fire up the fryer
  4. Nasty lookin King looks mean like he wants you to hurry up and put him back in so he can go slaughter some more baitfish. Boat looks tight.
  5. Tell ur cousin a lot of millenials are payin top dollar for ear piercings like that.

  7. Obviously. And there's a lot of water upstream for sure, but something I learned from the hydrologists this year is that a lake can only flow out so fast, no matter how much water it has in it. It seems counterintuitive but thats how it works. This goes for Erie and all the great lakes. Look at the charts on the link, Erie is even predicted to drop slightly despite Michigan/Huron and Lake St Clair 3 feet over average, and Ontario will do the same despite Erie 31 inches over average. By 4th of July we will be only 10 inches over average here which is miraculous considering the situation in the other lakes.
  8. Thankfully you're wrong. Erie is the only lake that flows into Ontario and despite it not being regulated and a whopping 31 inches over average, its outflow into Lake O doesnt exceed what is flowing through Massena today. Ontario is 13 inches over right now and the Army Corps prediction for June 22nd is down 2 more inches. Storm surge will move levels around a little but we are looking good this summer. Here's a great link for you https://www.lre.usace.army.mil/Missions/Great-Lakes-Information/Great-Lakes-Water-Levels/Water-Level-Forecast/Weekly-Great-Lakes-Water-Levels/ .
  9. If it helps, Lake O is 18 inches down from this time last year. Great combination of IJC pressure from NY state, fairly dry spring, not much ice damming at the Massena locks (allows for greater outflows thru the winter), and the Ottawa river behaved very well this spring and didn't crush Montreal so the outflows are maxxed and are expected to stay that way. Despite the record high water in the upper great lakes, Ontario and the St Lawrence are in relatively good shape. Awesome news for cottages, anglers and businesses at a time when we really needed a win.
  10. I think browns are the best looking freshwater fish. Def a mounter thats a beast. Stickbait?
  11. Awesome haul. Did you guys hit em all day or was it better early n late?
  12. Fairly mild winds all night, and wind forecasts are very difficult to predict when its variable anyway. I am not seeing much more than a 6-8 mph west(ish) between now and tmrw morning. I would go for it, keep a close eye on the weather changes out there, go get some kings.
  13. stealth mode baby can't get any quieter than standing on a rock throwing lures. great fish
