I made mine out of wood to fit pretty snug at about 3/8 width. Only to find out the ones on the fishing pier at South Shore Yacht Club are just a bit thicker. I tap mine on and off using a rubber mallet. At south shore they fit just a bit snugger but still work. Plan on the metal plate about 3 inches until you hit the pipe.

Can someone tell me the width of the metal plate on the top of the rails that fishermen use to clamp their fishing poles onto? I made some 2x4 holders and want to know they fit on the rail. Both width and height if you know. Thank you.

Congrats on your 31" hen laker! Are you planning to use it as fertilizer for your garden? I heard that lakers over 29" are not recommended for consumption.. be careful!

All men (15 and older) and older women (50 and older) may safely eat:

Do Not Eat lake trout larger than 29"

Fished the river channel from 9:15 AM to 12:45PM Sunday going 2 for 2 with 2 bites total. The first fish was a very big surprise, a lake trout that measured 31 inches and weighed 11 pounds 12 ounces on the kitchen scale at home. Even more surprising, it was a hen laker that still hadn't spawned yet. It was full of eggs and was venting a few while in the net. This fish was also the only bite I had in 2 1/2 hours of fishing casting out and bouncing raw squid strips along bottom.

Around noon the 700 foot plus ore freighter, the CSL Niagara, came up the channel assisted by two harbor tugs. I thought fishing had ended with this disturbance but I managed to catch a 16" winter brown with the squid under a bobber.

Fished 3 times,last two weeks-no luck. Tried minnows,spawn sacs & night crawlers. Wait for west wind or calmer conditions. Some small brown trout were caught,north end in harbor. They were using small spoons. You need long net 10+' for larger fish. No one really doing good-too windy.

There are some perch around. Fished 8-10 this morning. Managed about a dozen perch with 5 being kept 10-11 inches. Crappie minnows. Nothing huge. Also caught a sturgeon, about 18 inches, thought it was going to be a really nice perch until I saw it. I think larger minnows might catch bigger perch, but perhaps fewer.

Does anyone have any advice on how to fish for northern pike in the Harbor or Summerfest grounds. I've heard there are some 40+ pike swimming around in the Harbor but i can't seem to locate any. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreceiated. I would love to hook into a big female pike this fall. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post to everyone.

Got 3 browns before sunset. The third one took my little cleo... Accidentally hooked a 3 lbs gizzard shad. The guy beside me got a burbot. I found fish activity is really high right before sunset but for a very short period, about 20 mins.

I was hoping to tie into one of the browns; caught this beauty instead. CPR'd and hopefully it will be 10lbs next year.
