  1. Took advantage of a calmer afternoon to take a solo run. Ran over the zombie salmon at the jetty and went 10 miles offshore to find steelhead and minor salmon. Found a few, went 3 for 4 and kept 2. Stan Kulak Trinidad Tackle 9 inch dodger and fly took the steelhead on 400 copper. The salmon came on a Moonshine geezer at 80 down on the probe rigger. 65 degrees surface at the 30.5 line and 50 degrees 80 feet down. Came back in at sunset. It was a great afternoon to be on the lake. Likely will be next spring before the Stand & Deliver hits the lake again...unless there's Erie perch time in the works.

  2. You're right about that, I feel it today in my lower back. The trolling was worse than the running out and back. Kind of a washing machine, and I think I was in the drier without the heat, cause I wasn't dry at least on the left side of me going south...lol! The Black North had nice cold beer and a 1/2 lb Portabello swiss burger for me to rejuvenate with! Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Thanks Andy..nothing huge just good fish! Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. It was a a bit unruly with a cross chop. Solid 3s and some close to 4 foot. Only could manage about 17 mph without flying. Trolling was a challenge alone with the wind. Pretty strong currents down deep. Mostly the waves were coming out of the east but they were oddly spaced. Sure was a long ride and my back is telling me!

  5. A little bumpy today, but managed a limit of steelhead and salmon on a solo run well offshore out of Point Breeze. Played with the staging kings in front of the wall, but they were sulking in warm water and not very interested. 8:15 am picked everything and ran to 28 line. Trolled around east and west and north to 29.2. Had good steelhead action 28.7 to 29, and went 2 for 3 on them and one 2 year old king. Moonshine hotlips RV was hot on the steelhead as was a green dot dalmatian flasher and fly and the salmon took the Moonshine also. All fish came from 75 to 100 feet down. Came in at noon.

  6. Andy knows a thing or two about farm equipment. Those coppers are what we refer to as...farm equipment...LOL!..nice fishing men! Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Stacking waves are dangerous and they happen without a lot of warning. I have seen them go 1.5 to double the normal set. A 4 foot wave suddenly becomes 7 or 8 and usually settles once, then rears up and curls over in a frothing rush. Had one once at the stern of my heavy fiberglass center console with the integral stern drive. It curled over the motors, into the well and over the stern cap. 3 to 4 inches of water in the deck area. Scuppers handled it, but that was enough of that. It was one of 2 waves that just seemed to appear from nothing. Heaped up and rogue. FX Shawn was fishing with me and that was out of golden hills that day. Very sad for these two men, and wish that it wasn't the tragedy it was. Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Out of Point Breeze Monday morning, my good friends Marc, and Franz Leinders, Franz's friend Mike and my friend Douglas Tranello, all had a turn at reeling some salmon and trout today. Our fishing was a bit slow today, but some quality kings came to the net. Sure was warm out there! We ran down west to Shadigee, and then trolled north late in the day to look for more stable thermocline. We did finally pick a second, and nice 20 lb salmon going north into the deeper water at early afternoon. One more smaller king for Mike just before the storm came and caused us to pack up quick. Good to see all my old friends and meet Mike for the first time! 42 second gold mag spoon down 80/85 was best of 7 rods in. However everything else did take hits, just slowly. Meat, flasher fly, spin doctor fly. Lots of marks in 150 fow, but seemed to be largely non responsive and streaking through. Pulled the middle rigger and replaced with 100 foot stealth copper to keep the disturbance down with balls and cable and that helped. Storm was coming and had to pull the plug quick.

  10. Yes it does Les! Wish that all the fish would stay hooked up!..we had plenty hits but few stayed. Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Had some fun yesterday with my nephew Dominick and his cousin Mikey fishing the big pond for salmon. We had 13 strikes for the morning, but had a case of the dropsy issue going on. Only netted 4 fish, with 2 being undersized steelhead, and one nice one with a 20 lb king. The highlight of the day was at the end of the time, when a double took the stage, and then a third rod went, and then a fourth rod went, and only the big king came back to the net. In the end we had only 2 of the rods of the 6 we started with left in the water. I field tested a new prototype 11 inch dodger attractor by Trinidad Tackle for my friend Stan Kulak, who graciously chose me to try in the lake for the kings. Although we couldn't bring a fish to the camera with it attached to its mouth, we did have two very good kings strike the twinkie meat rig being towed by the dodger. Both unfortunately pulled the hook and still swim. The king spun about 300 feet of backing off the reel on a 400 foot copper wire rig and came unbuttoned. The other was taken on a 42 second spoon off the downrigger and that one went to the fish box! Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Not horrible. Easier to flick off in the water, but I'm using 50lb. Mono splice in the rigger rods. I shelved the wire dives for long coppers also. Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. We limited out today on king salmon! A double was the highlight. No biggies, but nice fish all 15 to 16lb. One screamer got away that was likely the biggest fish, but after peeling line for about 400 feet it came unbuttoned. 10 hits and 7 fish to the boat, one was returned, a small steelhead. Great day on the water offshore at the 27.5 to 28 line. Everything took fish flasher flies, twinkie meat, Moonshine geezer, and seasick waddler spoons. Down riggers, out riggers, long copper 400, 500, no divers were out though. Started at 70 down for 46 degrees,, then later moved to 85 down. Riggers at 50, 80 and 90 all took fish.

    Nice update Les! Love the show and watch every episode with Cher. Marciano is our favorite captain, she thinks of Cararo as "Dick Dasterdly" LOL! also she hasn't got much like for Greg Mayer on the Frenzy. I have my picture standing at the stern of the Frenzy in the Oregon Fleet marina from October 2015.
