    Getting the Itch Crystal Boat Launch?

    Yeah, chopping at the bit to get out there. Sunday's winds look good if it happened to be clear. A lot of ice was coming down the river today by the looks of dennis's post. I guess time will tell.

    Getting the Itch Crystal Boat Launch?

    How far west do you think I have to drive to find a clear boat ramp on Erie?

    I thought there was a shore derby as well. oh well. I lost a possible contender at the side of the boat.

    queenston derby

    Does anyone know the standings from the shore and boat derbys this past saturday? I didn't realize there was a derby on down there until it was too late. Fishing was good though.

    Smoked rainbow trout

    I don't eat the fish from the lower any more. They taste different. They are a lot easier to catch there though.

    Smoked rainbow trout

    Anyone have some good smoked rainbow trout recipes? Please share. Each year I go to Vancouver and eat this smoked salmon that is on the firm and chunky side and sweet. Has anyone done something like this?

    Boating up the lower niagara

    Thanks for the advice, do you leave your motor on the whole time you are up past the power plants or are you referring to just the way back? We sat in a back Eddie with spot lock on for about a half and hour but we did have the big motor off. Deetch, i agree with you the path up and down were a thrill. Does anyone else have some pointers or past experiences to share?
  13. HI Guys, I followed up a boat past the power plants yesterday and I have to save it was awesome. I'm looking for some tips or things to look out for as I'm not a expert in that part of the river from the boat. Coming back down was a little tense driving around the massive eddies but with a little gas we got out of dodge rather quick. Obviously this part of the river can be dangerous and i'm looking to learn from others "oh doo-doo" moments. And...... Go!

    Queenston launch

    I agree, i launched there yesterday and it would have been easier without docks. a cleat or something would be nice.

    Bow Mount gadget info

    Thanks guys,CPA has offered to give me a demo of the minn kota. If we can just get the winds to co-operate we could get out. Been reading a bit about the comparisons and it sounds like motor guide has made some improvement to there pin point system. Can anyone comment to its accuracy? Also, other things i have read is that the minn kota's are much noisier than the motorguides, im not sure if that matters much to me but, Can anyone comment to this? So far it looks like a comparison between the Powerdrive with ipilot and the Xi5 with pinpoint.
