  3. 1988 Northcoast Twin 150 Yamaha 4 stroke Finally tuned in and rigged out
  4. Depending on what this wind does for the lake will determine where you should be fishing. You can either start in 100fow and head south until you get into fish. OR. Start in 350 fow and play out there until you find some bows and cohos. Winds over the last couple weeks have really mixed up temps so will be hit and miss as to where they are. Not a lot of reports to go by either. Definitely run your gear in the upper 50ft of the water column and don't be afraid to mupp your riggers, (cheaters). Lite line 12-15 test is good now and spoons, not to say that flashers and flies wont work but you are trying to match the bait. 3-10 colour lead core or short copper rigs would work well now as well. If you are in 300+fow you should come across some teenage kings as well. I am going on Wednesday morning out of Whitby. You can also check in 30 fow in front of harbour for staging kings as there might be some still there waiting to do there spawn run Good Luck
  5. Hi Vince If you have anyone else looking. I still have the framework from my Bimini. Same shape and width as yours all stainless steel.
  6. Whitby and Bowmanville are great areas for fishing salmon and trout. All kinds of hotels and motels. Holiday inn, Howard Johnson's in Bowmanville and some motel 6 in area. They prob don't have fish cleaning facilities. Most charters clean fish on lake, much easier. If you are booking a charter ask you capt for lodging suggestions. Salmon just starting to show in Whitby Pickering so check reports on here or spoonpullers.com. Newcastle also has some good charter guys but accommodations are a little farther away.
  7. JUst curious if you have a car like the rest of us who drive there to check. Would imagine all creeks blown out now
  8. Have a 23 ft Thundercraft with trailer. Asking 4000. Located just outside Toronto. Send email to [email protected] for pics [ Post made via iPhone ]
  9. Does anyone have a good knot for attaching swivel to wire. Checked out the one on LOTSA. is there any others that work as well as or better Thanxs Steve
  10. Hello fellow members !!!! Got out about 5 pm with my oldest boy (9 yrs), school's out for summer and an old friend. Water had a 1-2 ft roll but no chop so it seemed like a good nite for fishing. We werent disappointed. By 5:45 we hab boated 2 8 lbs plus rainbows which provided us with some good acrobatics and some strength training for the young lad. Running riggers with cheaters 15' above .90 fow down 50-60 ft. Bottom had jet divers with anchovies on both riggers , tops had chartreuse/silver on one cheater and blue/silver ribs on the other. My son got bored and went into cuddy to play hand held video game around 6:30. No sooner had he gone down, we had one of the anchovies go off, pulled it out of the holder ,then the second anchovie popped. The young fella had his first double, both salmon 1 was 23 lbs, the second was 18 lbs. Both fish caught in 80 fow down 60 + 55 out about 10' off ball. First season that I've had action with meat. Quickly becoming a convert. By the time we got off the water at 9:15 we had boated 9 fish 4 bows 5 salmon ( smallest 16lbs, largest was the 23) The son is waking up at 5:30 AM Sat so he can get onto the fish with us tomorrow Cant say I blame him Keep Your Lines Wet Guys Steve
  11. Thanxs again guys As I have just started fishing the Big O, ( 2 years) what do you mean by leadcore. Is that a type of line or a lead weight attached to the line. If I am going to learn this technique I might as well do it right the first time. Your help is greatly appreciated as the charters over here dont like to share. When the salmon derby starts July 7 they have their own code on the VHF. Sounds like gibberish
  12. THanxs for the info guys. Currently trying small inline boards 4" x 14" long. They seem to pop across the top of the water. Going to purchase larger double boards and a Pole and reel system for the Toy. Definitely looking to increase the odds for fish. If I wanted to make my own pole and reel, what kind of line do you have on the reels? Wire,?or rope?. IS it worth buying versus making
  13. Wrinkle City is just east of Darlington Nuclear Plant which is just east of Oshawa Ontario
  14. Hey LOU members Didnt get out till after lunch today, had some honey do things to get cleared off the list. There was about ten boats off wrinkle city today. Dont know if they were onto them, but we were, Hooked five boated four today. Ranged from 18 lbs- 27 lbs. Also got 2 bows. Blue RAC, and NK all working today 80-100 fow 40 down . The one that got away hit the anchovie on a dipsy, staightened one hookon the treble broke the another . Guess it didnt want to meet us. All fish have been hitting agressively, a giving us great runs to get adrenilene pumping. Blue patterns seem to be working well again this year. Marking piles of baitfish and lots of big fish. Maybe 1 percent of big that are marked are biting though. Hope to get upto 3-4 percent. Dreaming ? Maybe not. Hoping some of the other guys on the north side will get involved with this site. I'm sure that things work a little bit differently, as far as depth colours and pattern are concerned. Come on Guys get involved, it only helps us catch bigger and better fish Remember the Salmon Derby opens July7, Get your tickets at CTC
  15. Can you pull spoons on your boards or are you using stick baits. How deep do you want the stick to run. Are weights required?. HAving just started with boards, next question is how do I stop the board from poppingtowards the boat. Am I going to fast, 2.5 mph on GPS. Do Flies work better off a board if so is there a better way to rig. Any info or experience sharing is greatly appreciated.
  16. Yes whole anchovies, got them at Gagnon's here in Oshawa. Dont remember the brand but will post as soon as I can buy another package. OR their number is 905-725-5798 ADDRESS is 385 Bloor ST. W. Oshawa Ontario
  17. The blue spoons are blue with silver reflective strip black/red eye believe they are made by RAC. I have had good success with an all blue( no eye) last year. RAC also makes a purple /blue spoon with reflective strip that worked well last year. We marked all kinds of larger fish from 30' down to 65' ( groups of 4-6) on the screen at times
  18. Sunday Morning Got out early (5:30 am) Lake wasnt to bad for waves but had some good rollers, just to make it interesting. Had heard from some of the others that they were marking large balls of bait fish in 40 fow- 100 fow on Saturday so we had to try shallow first. Put out blue spoons @ 55' with cheater 15' above on one side on the other put out anchovie on dipsy with Chartreuse flasher on one rod and black/white NK on the other. Around 6:30 24 lb. salmon hit and just about spooled me. So nice to finally have a big dog scratch the itch. Continued to run east 80-100 fow Next salmon 20 lbs. hit the anchovie about 7:45 . Two larger salmon on same day this early for the north side is amazing. Finally ended the morning with a 12 lb. rainbow for the BBQ.
  19. hello fellow steelheads and salmonchasers Looking forward to trying out some of the advice found on this site. I run a 24' Thundercraft out of Newcastle ( Just east of Oshawa). Not a lot of experience down rigging- 2 years- learning new tricks and techniques each time out. Trial and error is alright, but why not try to learn from the best. Hopefully I can learn from the guys that do it all the time. Put about 120 hours on the boat last year, shooting for more this year. I understand the fishing is that much better on the south side. but hopefully the same things work over here. Thanks for your time in advance Exttrimmer- Steve
