    i have a 4 man inflatable raft boat that i would like to take out myself and do some fishing near Ontario Port. i read that the water is shallow and fast and that it goes in the direction of lake Ontario. Is it safe for me to go from Port Ontario entrance to Lake Ontario and does the current head in that direction. I am thinking of fishing for steelhead in that area between Port Ontario and the lake. Is that recommended, where should i anchor and what time of day is optimal. Also lures I should use if you know. I am using an open reel rod with 10 pound test. Thank you for any help you can provide.
