  1. Went out in the morning on Monday, August 9th. Stayed mostly in 100-180 fow. Caught 18 lb King in 108fow on a ball down 90 using a moonshine lure. There were some suspended marks and some bait. Went out to 180 and the screen dried up so we headed back towards shore. In 160fow we doubled up. Got a nice steelhead on a chicken leg cheater and then another teenage King on a meat rig. Lake turned to glass so we headed off the water around 10:30. The week before we did the same routine and were skunked. That's fishing!
  2. I fished the Braddocks area Friday morning and couldn't believe the bait pods and fish that I was marking in approximately 120 fow. Could only manage two small Kings and I mean small... Did have one rip on a dipsie in 130 and was broke off.....frustrating day for me....
  3. I was out from Sandy this morning too...Took a nice teenage King on a rainbow spoon off a cheater in 170FOW on a ball that was down 100. Trolled out to 250 with a blank screen. Turned around and headed in. Had a rip on the dipsie, but no hook up in 180FOW. In 170 FOW doubled up on steelies. One on the leadcore out all ten colors on a wonderbread plug and the other came off the cheater that took the salmon earlier in the day. Put some Gambler rigs on in 110FOW and doubled right up on two nice lakers...Called it a day around 11:45.
  4. How deep did you fish....I might go out from Braddocks today... Thanks.
  5. Congrats on the fish...Sounds like how it was on Tuesday out from Braddocks….Suspended fish here and there and no bait pods....
  6. Finally, got out on Lake Ontario this morning....Fished between 85 and 115 fow between 7 and 11am. Scattered marks around 80 down. Finally hooked up on white spin doctor and dolphin fly. 16.5 King. Also hooked up on the same set up, 21.5 lb King. Had a couple of other knock offs, but no one home....Then had another King on off a lemon crush NK at 80 down on the ball...Lost him in the lead core set up....Was a beautiful morning.
  7. Love your posts Jeremy....I'm putting in at Braddocks today. Hopefully I can add some to this site.
  8. Fished 75-85FOW this morning....Caught 1 nice 20 lb King, one 5-6Lb Atlantic, and another small King around 5 lb. Caught big King on a white green dotted spin doctor with green fly. Setting was 240. Caught the Atlantic and smaller King on an NK spook down 60 off the ball.. Marked some bait in earlier...Thanks for the help....
  9. Thanks for the info....Will post when I'm finished fishing..... Picker Pines
  10. Am going out tomorrow morning from Sandy Creek....Looking for any advice on where to start...Last time out was two weeks ago and we did fairly well in 125FOW down 70feet. Thanks! Picker Pines Paul Firlit
  11. Finally had a chance to take my boat out on the big pond this morning. launched at Sandy Creek around 7:30AM. Set up in 150FOW. Had three hits on free sliders that were fished on a downrigger ball at 95 in 170FOW. Managed to land a 4-5 lb steelhead. Later went shallow. Caught a laker and a king? in 100FOW down 95 on pro king prism lures...
  12. Had a chance to troll Monday morning and took a friend out for the first time....Set up in 175FOW and headed north at around 7:15AM. Had riggers at 65 and 80 with free sliding cheaters. Took a steelhead in around 210FOW on the 80 rigger loaded with a proking lure. Not many marks and no bait around, but still kicked around out there. Picked up another Steelhead off the dipsey set at 180, loaded with a 42nd spinny and green-black fly in 190FOW. There were some large marks, but were very deep 100-120FOW. Finally moved in and found some better screens in the 175FOW range. Caught a nice brown on a free slider armed with a firecracker over 180FOW. Not a lot of action, but boy was it nice to get out there again.... Bucka Pines
  13. Well, I finally was able to get out again on the Big Pond.... Heard some reports and went to deeper water, 150-250 FOW....Kicked around there all morning....Very few marks. Had two hook-ups on the dipseys with flies and lost both....Finally, decided to troll in and whadya know...In about 80 FOW the dipsey fires and there is drag screaming...After a nice 20 minute fight...We landed a nice 17 pound King...Who'd have thunk? 80FOW around 11:30AM.... Needless to say, the friend I took fishing had a great time...There was much more activity in the 80FOW range...Should have started in the skinny...anyway, that's fishing....
  14. Nice fish "Troutman" Here's a 32 1/2 inch steelhead I caught this year on an ultralight spinning rod and 8 pound test.... We are blessed in this neck of the woods! Fish on! Pines
  15. Trolled Sandy Creek out in Hamlin this morning. Did 3 lakers and one steelhead. All fish came off riggers. Steelhead was on a "firecracker" cheater on a ball that was down 70FOW in 140 FOW. Lakers came off the balls set around 65 feet in 85-95 FOW. 2 Lakers hit a proking lure and the largest laker hit a green NBK lure. Nothing on the dipsies....
  16. Got a chance to go fishing with my neighbor this morning. Fished the 80FOW territory. Marked occasional bait pods and hooks. Finally got a nice 28# King on the 60 rigger on a spook NK...Great couple runs by this toughy, but we did end up landed him....Reloaded and about 20 minutes later did another King that was just as stubborn. Weighed 20#. Continued to mark the occasional hook, but called it a day around 11:30AM. Got a bit choppy out there, but not bad.....
  17. Yeah, Sandy Creek in Hamlin.... Brian."Gambler" Gambell....Thanks for all your help in locating fish....Would have went deeper, but my neighbor was happy where we were....Can't wait to get back on the Lake...Still trying to catch something on the lead core... The one dipsey with the yellow NBK fired with a screamer yesterday too...It looked like a big steelie cause I could see it jumping behind the boat.... Hook'em>>>>>>Picker Pines
  18. Fished 60 to 80 FOW out in front of Sandy Creek launch....Caught a couple skippers, a 8# brown and then doubled with a 28# King and 11# steelhead...Needless to say it was a beautiful morning.....All fish came off the riggers down 50 and 60 ft. All fish came off of NK spooks.....Surface temp was around 66..... Picker Pines
