  1. My favorite tried and true method is to have binoculars on your boat and look for the guys sitting stationary hooping and hollering cranking in fish. I then motor over and tie up to their boat and proceed to fish................works every time! Offering a cold refreshment alleviates any ill will most of the time. To be serious trusting your equipment and identifying the bait and Lakers feeding on bottom is what I've found works best for me. More time finding and less time jigging dead water. I started using a new fish finder and sometimes its just an empty screen. I thought it was broke and couldn't get anymore sensitivity out of it until i started finding real marks. I had a really old Lowrance that no matter where i went i would always mark fish. With the new fish finder its really put more confidence for me marking true marks of bait and fish and less erroneous readings. I have more willingness now to do a bit more time looking and searching for bait and fish before wetting a line. I usually run out and mark 3 or 4 good spots. I then try to put a time limit 30 minutes or so on a location which can be hard when you know they just aren't biting but again finding active fish will load a boat faster.
  2. Not sure where your located i know Tackle Shack in Wellsboro PA has had em in past....................
  3. Anyone been out, how bad is debris, water clarity, boat launches, etc etc lookin to go to Deans next few days......................
  4. Might be more action trolling at local tavern..........Good luck!
  5. You cant beat the Pacific Northwest in all welded aluminum rigs. Hewes, alumaweld, duckworth, willies, north rivers, thunder jet, snake river, rogue etc etc the list goes on and on............
  6. I was just pickin i had friends up in 3 of the boats Saturday. It seems fishermen can completely disappear from the internet for posting to many perch or Oneida walleye reports. 😁
  7. A laker report while perch fishing but no perch fishing report?😎
  8. Thats really cool. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Not to make light of a serious situation but i think Handy Andy has his hands full of other more attractive matters.....
  10. When you are using side or down imaging in shallow trolling does the screen just go black when you get past 125'? I thought SI would not be worth it while trolling but DI to......this thing probably gonna be a $700 flasher.....
  11. I fished and duck hunted lake almanore one of my all time favorites! Chico was fun to party in! Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. You'd think after the whole Texas power grid shutting down due to freeze and plants not being able to black start there would be more attention to this. Yikes.

  19. Hundreds of jobs no way my 850 mw plant only employs 35 Full time plus outages in spring and fall with 200-300 contractors for support. This was a 200 mw facility in coal days and now around 109 converted to gas turbine plus 20 mws for computers. Cooling all the computers has to be high discharge temp. Its not walk away technology there will always be maintenance they are looking at increasing mega watts to 500 plus by 2025 my guess would be new york taxes will chase em out. Bitcoin computers need cheap cooling from what I've read. Tax incentive? Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Launched my 21 footer out Allan Treman marine park last Sunday waters come up a bit since then it was shallow but doable. May be to far south for you. I was thinking about fishing it to Saturday winds on Friday showing gusts up to 40mph. Hoping they don't carry into Saturday.
  21. Agreed this part of it sounds dirtier than the discharge.......
  22. My point is your water and air are not any cleaner hence alga blooms and a power plant opening up is the easiest thing to point the blame when the real reason is all of the other pollution such as runoff we want to look past. I fish Erie and walnut creek its 4.5 hour drive vs 1.5 to Cayuga and an 1 hour to Seneca. I fish a jet boat on the Susquehanna as well and ice fish all year. I also fish Tioga/Hammond and Cowansque. As well as Oneida and Cannonsville. I have not fished the Allegheny but would like to wanna go? New york is 15.7% water vs PA 2.8%. Smaller state easier to get to all that super clean water LOL. I will get of my computer as this conversation is detracting from original poster sorry you took offense. Look at some of Washington states policies on stream pollutants and runoff issues affecting salmon and trout fisheries spawning locations for a good read.
  23. I always thought algae blooms were a result of high nitrogen runoff and other chemicals from fertilizers and such. Frogger during the 80s-90s you spoke of the fishermen congregating around the warm water? During that time was there a higher percentage of algae blooms? I guess its probably hard compare. In Tampa it was terrrible to see the algae bloom come in and wipe out parts of the bay, Redfish and snook would be dead everywhere. So sad. Hope that doesn't happen. Do algae blooms kill lampreys? Just being trying to stay positive.
  24. Pa fish New York as there's no major reserviors or bodies of water. Not for your clean water and skies lol.......
  25. Just ordered a Humminbird Helix 7 SI DI with nav maps. Anyone have any experience running this unit on Cayuga and if so thoughts? I struggled with the decision on whether side imaging would be worth it while trolling for Lakers and salmon I've always just used a standard Lowrance fish finder but decided to splurge. If not SI what about DI?Figured it would come in handy on Oneida for perch and walleye. Also have you used it for marking waypoints to start your next trolling route and is it easy to scroll back between maps and side imaging? I really probably should have checked one out before purchase..........
