    Dunkirk, NY Fishing

    Char..... I fished out of the Catt on Sunday, and in 80 fow, just a touch East of the creek, the temps went from about 64 F to 56 F, from 50 feet down to 60 feet down. The walleyes were laying on top of that temp break, 40 - 50 down, and lakers and steelhead were in the colder water. We got some of each on identical lures using identical presentations...... lead core and sticks. There were salmonids laying on the bottom and harassing the bait there...... The further West we went the closer to the surface that break came, so being after walleyes, I went back East after figuring that out...... good luck if you go.

    You can also set the reel drag so that it "clicks out" line while trolling, and then attach a pinch pad type release on the line between the reel and the 1st guide on the rod. The pinch pad release is tethered to the base of the rod holder. The pinch pad should be attached so that minimal force is required to pull it from the wire line. When a fish hits, the wire is pulled through/off the pinch pad, and the reel drag is set light enough that the initial hit and run can be survived. The pinch pad falls off the line, but is caught by the tether. There are lots of differing opinions on snubbers. I like them.

    Jeremy, I fished solo out of Sandy today and took 3 Lakers, 2 Browns and a king from 45 - 75 fow. But I probably had 15 bites. Just couldn't hook them up. Fished from 6:30 - 9:30. I had 50 F down 50 in 55. I didn't think my picture showed many kings, and the king I boated was 12 or 13 lbs and out 120 on a diver spoon. Perhaps the kings were deeper. Tomorrow is another day.

    auto pilot vs bow mounted electric

    I've got a 24V Terrova on the bow of an 18' Crestliner and love it for the autopilot and the spot lock features......It does not "auto-deploy" and I've not had any problems with it in the 4 years I've owned it. Battery life is 6+ hours when trolling, and that's plenty for what I've typically got in mind. For deep water perch fishing, spot lock is the "nuts"

    We fished out of Cattaraugus Creek yesterday and kept 18. 72 - 78 FOW. Everything(spoons / sticks / harnesses) worked, but we probably took the most fish on sticks. I don't think walleye fishing gets any better than it has been.

    Where are all the 20lb Steelhead we used to see

    I'm sure that both communities(trib and boat) of fishermen contribute to mortality. There are certainly plenty of fish that endure months of pressure in the tribs and "make it out alive". And there are plenty of fish that get released out on the big lake. I fish both out in the lake and in the tribs, and probably about equal amounts of time for each. Personally, I am much more confident in the fish's survival, when I release a trout (brown or rainbow) into a 40 F creek than when I release it into 70 F surface water. Pointing fingers between communities accomplishes nothing. Limits and regs need to be based on facts, not emotions.
