  1. I'd like to bring my teenage grandsons up to Oswego for their first Salmon trip but it would be a afternoon and evening trip because they work mornings, is there a decent bite later in the day? any info. would be appreciated as I haven't been Salmon fishing at Oswego in10-12 years. Gary
  2. Wow what difference a couple of days of fishing can be. Thurs. 5/21 was a slam dunk.I C&R several Lakers & marked all kinds of bait in 20-40 F.O.W. in the Long Point area Today in the same area No Fish,No Bait. I moved deeper & nothing. Oh well thats fishing but I'll be back out next week. Gary
  3. I did a solo this A.M. on the east side of Owasco around half way down the lake,I ran a jointed rapela out 100' and before I could hook it to the rigger release a 26" laker hit it, I boated 5 Lakers in less than a hour and then the approaching storm drove me off the lake. There is loads of bait & fish in 30' FOW below Long Pt. Mark N.Y. can you tell me if you were fishing above or below Long Point or all the above ? Gary (Grandpa fish on)
  4. I was over to the Owasco launch site yesterday and there were several rigs in the parking lot, The water level looks o.k. and I'm heading over to fish there in about 1/2 an hour. Gary

My problem like many is blow back issues with my 2 deepest riggers, I have been using 12# round cannon balls but as I stated before blowback is a major issue. Can anyone suggest any newer style such fish. pancake, that will work better ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Gary
  8. We had a great opener at Henderson Harbor this past weekend, I used to fish for Bass out of Oswego but hardly hear any bass fishing reports from the Oswego area any more ? Can anyone tell if there is still good bass fishing up there or whats going on ? Any help would be appreciated . Gary
  9. Have any of you used the mini disks off downriggers and found it to be sucessful? I'm thinking of running a disk-spoon combe off my two higher outside riggers maybe 100' back and set the angle to drop below and outside the cannonball track. Good or bad idea ? any help would be appreciated. Gary
