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!!

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
