Hey Rick!
My goodness these expanding forums! As ZZ Topp would say, "You're bad. You're nation-wide." (Ok so that's pretty obscure and dated; but I turn 40 in a month.)

Sure, were from all over!
NY, Mich, Minn, NH, Wis.

I live in NY, but love to fish everywhere!
Was at LOW last year, and will be there again this year.

If you want to catch 13" perch (Erie, Seneca Lake, Oneida), go where 8 to 12 pound Walleyes are common (Erie), or throw back 15 or 20 Brown Trout, and steelies like this a day from the Niagara River;

I think its really good to know about other places.You never know when you might end up there.I no longer fish the Pacific ocean as I have done since a small child. I now for the past 11 years fish and enjoy the lakes and rivers of MN. In 1998 the company I worked for here flew me to up state New york on a job for six months. Niagra falls area, the fishing was great. I started in holiday in right on Niagra river,there was a marina right inthe parking lot, early spring, had every thing you could want swimming in it, with size.spent the next 5 months in a holiday inn right at the top of Niagra falls great fishing an top and below. fished it from lake erie to lake Ontario, super Jumbo perch,giant trout,small mouth, large mouth bass, Muskie. N. Pike, and Carp so big you didnt want them to get nere your hook. also fished lakes and res. with very good success. only thing was the water above and below the falls was moving soo fast it was scary standing there fishing. one slip and thats your last trip. hey scott its as good as the minni missi meeting, and you never know may get married some day and spend your honey moon in Niagra falls. If you do make sure you have your rod with you.LOL. Ca. MN. NY.

This is the internet - trying to keep something that's open in nature to be regional in practice is about as silly as trying to keep one acre of Lake Superior as a private stock pond - without a net. Saddam Hussein LOOOOVES to fish - maybe he'll turn up in the "Open Water Forum" someday, looking for advice.

The current is scarry at times in the Niagara, but that's what keeps the water open 12 months a year. Allot of guys come up from Pa. and Ohio, because the fishing is even better in the winter.
Here's a Laker I got last week at the Niagara Bar where the Niagara enters Lake Ontario. So bring your rod, even if you get married in Febuary!!

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
