  1. Im in! NY season starts May 1st though1
  2. For the most part i have eliminated running colored dipseys in my spreads. I still have (and run) some glow and some chrome dipseys but the majority of the time i run all black dipseys. While i think that some days certain colors will out produce black, I think running Black dipseys eliminates the need to search for that right combo of colored dipseys and bait. By running black dipseys you can spend your time more wisely on finding the right spoon or flasher/fly combo.
  3. I use Gamakatsu treble and Gamakatsu octopus on all of my flies but Owners are great hooks too.
  4. I installed Berts last season and Ive been impressed with them so far. Check these guys out. They were (by far) the cheapest retailer i could find. http://www.buyfishingstuff.com/berts.html
  5. Pen Rearing Information Pen rearing projects around the lake aid in the stocking efforts of both Steelhead and Chinook Salmon. Pen rearing allows these fish to "smolt" and to grow to larger sizes before their release date. Unlike direct stocking, pen rearing increases survival and returns rates of these fish. These programs exist today because of the strong relationship between the DEC and the project's volunteers. If you have contact info for other pen rearing programs or updated information you would like to add email me or PM me.

  6. I use Daiwa heartlands with twilli tips. My oldest one has six seasons on it and i havent seen any wear. I would hope that you would have the same luck with the firewolf.
  7. dkuiper, Heres a nice video link for a tournament tie: http://www.fishdoctorcharters.com/videos/video2A.html Mono retains alot of memory (and that is where your seeing the line curl from), try using some fluoro and see how that works for you.
  8. The Moor Subtroll is a great unit and youll definitely be happy with it. The big difference between the subtroll and the depth raider. The subtroll has a large anolog read out (similar to a speedometer) and the depth raider has a digital readout.
  9. I have found that while some days a "fast" troll (2-2.5) might produce other days might require you to troll slow 1.5-2 mph. Vary your speeds and check your baits action because a slow troll might make the difference on a day when the fish are inactive.

Prior to attending a meeting, participants should review the fish community objectives document prepared in 1997 and a brief summary of ecological changes that have taken place in the Lake Ontario ecosystem on the internet at http://www.seagrant.sunysb.edu/glsportf ...

The public will then have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any information presented. Following this question and answer session, participants will be offered an opportunity to provide written comments that will assist DEC and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources with planning efforts for the future of the Lake Ontario fishery. The public meetings will be held at the following times and locations: Monday, March 9, 2009, from 7 - 10 p.m. at the Oswego County BOCES, County Route 64, Mexico, New York.
