  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. Thanks Andy..nothing huge just good fish! Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Nice fishing Andy Sent from my SM-N900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. 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.

  15. 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
