  1. When the lake isn't rolling huge waves, off shore 29 line 540 fow and north. Some 2 year olds, and steel are there, but its a hunting game. No Intel to go on when you are that far out and no one is there. An afternoon of 4 hours only yielded one 2 year old with six rod spread. Fish hit a spin doctor and fly on a 150 wire diver 2.5 setting. No other hits for spoons or dodgers. This was Tuesday this week. Just gotta find a day without crazy water this time of year. Kinda few and far between. Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Nice looking brown Brian! Nice job. Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Sometimes we just want something that not only performs, but looks good above the mantle of the fireplace! Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. If you can head to deep water straight out you can find decent numbers of mature kings, 2 year olds, and steelhead. A down speed indicator is very highly recommended, since currents out there have been very wild. Start at 29N / 30N and troll north. Look to 34N. When you find fish or hit some stick on it. Familiar bite has been good on teaser flasher rigs. Mag spoons work, spin docs and flies. Spread your depth out. Some active fish are coming above the preferred normal Temps, but keep some of you stuff in the 46 to 52 degree range. Thats been the case for the past week. Good luck!

  5. Nice catch solo! Heart pumping stuff! Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks for the great report Rick, part of the fun is running out and back..some of it was rough, some of it was amazingly smooth. Fish were snapping out there! Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. That could be arranged. The fish coffin on the other side could store a bean bag..I've seen the bikini bow cover on some boats that could keep him from getting fried![emoji1787][emoji23] Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Actually, those are a combination of downrigger arms and clamp on planer reels. The reels themselves are Super Ski, and have had them for a couple decades. The 2 foot arms are from Proos manual down riggers. The swivel heads work pretty nice. Keeps the line coming straight in and out. I just used stainless hose clamps to secure the arms in place.

  9. That day you could have been in a row boat! It was very calm on Saturday. Tuesday was not calm and even could have used a longer hull to run the waves quicker on the way back. I think most times with that close chop a full deep V more than 27 feet would be a bit better for speed. Mine is 22 on the running hull and it is a modified deep V. Its a good compromise for trolling speed stability, but suffers on running speed. I couldn't manage more than 17 mph without launching on the type of wave set that was there Tuesday. Very hard ride and not fast enough to plane all the way out. Just the opposite was Saturday and any boat would have had a nice time out there next to Canada.

  10. Yes naps are optional with occasional rude awakenings of drag sounds..[emoji38] Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Yeah, turns out he got salmon fever and reeled all the big ones in. I figured he could be part of the coffin box any time..the salmon won![emoji38] Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Had a spectacular morning with my friend Steve out of Point Breeze today. We fished way offshore in 600 feet of water and found some nice mature king salmon. We boxed a limit of 6 for the 2 of us, and most of the fish came from 70 to 90 feet down on various baits. Everything caught the salmon that was on the 6 rod spread. Spoons on downriggers, spin doctors and flys on divers out 200 and 240, 400 ft copper with flasher and herring strip. The ride was long out and back near the Canadian fence, but was a largely flat sea condition and the day was very comfortable. That was this past Saturday. Things hadn't changed onTuesday, same program, same area off-shore, same set up, and had four 2 year olds, a nice steelhead a really good screamer on the 400 copper meat rig but lost it halfway up the copper, all jn the morning. Then it got pretty uncomfortable out there with the west southwest wind building and it took us an hour of pounding to get back to Port. Offshore remains good if you got the gas and the time to run, and a fish hawk is pretty useful out there as the down currents were crazy strong. You go like a snail one way, and turn, and run like a rabbit the other Way. Fish on! Mark Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Here's something about the Fish Hawk probe that might find you wondering why the probe isn't sending info suddenly. Yesterday mine quit sending depth speed and temp. Surface was there cause it reads from the transducer on the hull. What I found was one of the batteries from the 4 battery carrier pod, lost contact with one battery. It popped out of the spring retainer contact while running inside the probe. It did it twice! I then wrapped the whole carrier with a band of electrical tape to keep the battery from jumping out. Problem solved! Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Ok, great I'll send you a pm! Sent from my SM-N975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Harvey, my name is Mark, I have bought from you before and appreciate the quality of your weights. I would like to order 2 of 12 lb. Torpedoes and I can pick them up at your location in Watkins Glen to avoid the shipping debacle. Let me know when you have stock, thanks, skipper 19 aka Mark.
