Adjust Your Lead On Baits and Flies
We had been trolling all morning with standard flasher/fly combinations, and the action had been reasonably fast until about 9 am. The entire fleet was running 8 inch flashers with flies that were trolled 21 inches behind.
Fried Cheesy Salmon Bites
So you kept some salmon fillets and now after trying some you are and the kids are not real sure you like the taste of Great lakes salmon. Well here is the recioe you have been waiting for!
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon dill weed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 cups flaked cooked salmon.
Oil for deep-fat frying
Tartar sauce, optional
1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Stir in the fish. Roll into 1-in. balls.
2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry fish nuggets, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides; drain on paper towels. Serve with tartar or mustard sauce, spicy wing dip, hot sauce or about anything you want to dunk them in.
Now that the official announcement that the ice boom is being taken out at the head of the Niagara River off Buffalo has been made (combined with the fact that there is very little ice left in Lake Erie), action in Lake Ontario for salmon and trout should slowly start to improve.
Those discharges are a fisherman's delight when fishing for trout and salmon on Lake Ontario as they provide cover for bait and predator fish alike.
