  1. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Time on Water: Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 7 Total Boated:4 Species Breakdown:kings, steel Hot Lure: Trolling Speed: Down Speed: 2.4 Boat Depth: 150-220 Lure Depth: ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Set up it 115fow off the bay. Doubled on 20# kings between 150 and 180fow. Both green echips with green dots/hammer flys. By far our best set up this summer. 1st fish on the 115 rigger, 2nd on wire out 240. Nebie dropped another screamer. Then boated a 8#king and 5#steelhead. All in that same area.
  2. Thanks for the report. Going to give it a shot this afternoon. Will post later. Bill
  3. After any king bite or land I always check hooks fly leader and leader back to the dipsey. Even if your running 50# on your fly you will want to retie if you feel any abrasion. May keep it out of the water a little longer, but you'll be confident in your tackle. Line is the cheapest part so check it often. Even spoon bites off riggers. Check the 15-20 ft of leader to the release. Hope this helps with less breakoffs. Bill
  4. Cool video. How long are you streaching your fly behind the spinny? Looks kind of long in the vid. Usually 21-24" this time of year is best.
  5. I fished out of oceancity about 10 yrs ago on a tuna trip. We chunked for the whole trip and only produced a dolphin and a 40# bluefin. I would not recommend it. However if your not staying there and are looking for a great offshore trip, head down to Oregon inlet NC about 4 hours further, but some of the best offshore fishing along the coast. I would never think twice driving the extra 4 hours. Oregon inlet post great fishing reports and depending on when you go you can rent a great beach houses for a fraction of what you would pay for a hotel stay. Came back from a 2 day offshore trip in may with over 400# of dolphin and yellowfin tuna.
  6. Had a prerigged 300 copper tangle and had to cut off the mono leader. It was tied together. Is there a knot to retie or use spro swivel?
  7. Had a tangle on a 300 copper and had to cut off the leader. The combo was purchased all set up. What knot do you tie or do you prefer spro swivels.
  8. Rainbows were crushing the Carbon 14 this past weekend off I-bay. By far one of my fovorite spoons.
  9. I never targeted them until last year. On days when the salmon bite is slow or non existent you can always pull lakers. As long as it is calm. Late morning is a great time to switch over. Very easy spread of 2 riggers on the bottom pulling hammerhead cowbells. If they are down there you will catch them no matter what time of day it is. 2 rods will also keep you very busy. Slimy but fun when not much else is happening. Bill
  10. Riggers right on the bottom. Watch them bounce, then raise them up a foot or 2. All sand out there. Bill
  11. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Time on Water:8a-11a Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 11 Total Boated:10 Species Breakdown: Hot Lure: Cowbells/spin&glow Trolling Speed: Down Speed: Boat Depth: 100-150 Lure Depth: Bottom Started off shipbuilders in 60fow. Worked out to 150 fow off webster park. Not much on the screen. After an hour and a half, decided to slow down and put down the cowbells. Steady pick of 5-9# lakers. Between 100-150 fow. Later in the morning started marking bait and fish higher in the water column. Couldn't get anything else to go.
  12. Went out late in the morning on the new boat shakedown (10am-12pm). Set up in 50fow off the bay. 2 cores on boards, 2 wires and 2 riggers. Started marking lakers so changed the program a little and slowed down. Ended up pulling 5 lakers and one small shaker king on the 10 color. 90-120fow off webster park. No size biggest 7#. Good thing, everything we mounted ran great. Just have a lot of tackle to organize. Bill
  13. I finally measured the bases and the holes are 4" apart at the center. Do you think they would fit? Bill
  14. Will low profile cannon swivel bases fit on them?
  15. Anyone try pulling 300 coppers off offshore boards. Tried them off church walleye boards last year and they pull back pretty far. Just wondering if it is worth it to try on an offshore.
  16. I have used blacks for years and a lot of times they wont release on small fish or lakers. Ran them last year tightened down with rubberbands and had a lot better success. Didn't miss but a couple releases, and you can see the small ones that don't release. For a few bucks for a few hundred at staples I would try that first. Bill

    I Bay Perch Info

    We fished it wednesday with the same story. Bounced all around the bay where we usually get them. Only boated about 8, 2being keepers in 10 fow by the 2nd markers. Sodus is reporting them in tight. I would try the markers or shallower. We worked from 60 fow to 10 fow. Hope this helps. Bill
  18. Went out of the river also. Ran down to just b4 Russel. Put 4 boards out and immediatly hooked up. While bringing in first fish 2nd inside planer fires. Boated a 4-5lb smallmouth and similar size brown. Worked down to Round pond. Pulled lines and ran to where first hooked up. Proceeded to troll all the way to the mouth of I-bay only boating 1 more brown. Possibly a couple short hits that were missed. Water looked the best just west of the bay but didn't hook up in there. Packed it in at 1130am
  19. Last year I picked up a couple rebel small stick baits in Bass color for about 2 bucks a piece, to try to resemble golby's. Fished it wednesday in colored water off I-bay, and it took most of the fish. Approx 3" straight stick. Bill
  20. Fished wednesday 3/15. Docks are in, bridge is still in so you have to be able to fit under it. Fished out of ourr 18ft CC Whaler. Cleared the bridge by about 10". Fishing was good. Ran 4 boards with stick baits. 9 browns in 3hours biggest 7lb. Not a bad shakedown. Everything ran well. Bill
  21. Anyone try these? pro's con's. Thanks Bill
  22. Fished off webster park btw 100 & 150 fow. For a while I couldn't get all the lines in the water. Best bait was white double crush glow spinny with green dots and pro am fly out 200 on wire (took at least 12 hits). One King about 20# and alot of lakers. We boated close to 20 fish and dropped quite a few. I don't believe they were all laker bites. We had wicked current over there. The fly was rigged with a tournament tie. Does anyone else drop more fish with this tie. I know when I tie up my own I just use a treble and don't seem to loose as many. I almost decided to retie it but I wanted to get it back in the water ASAP. It seemed like if it made it to 200 it wouldn't take long to fire if it even made it that far b4 getting wacked, Great morning. Hopefully be back out Sunday. Bill Boat ALYDA
  23. Years ago had a steelhead break the line just behind the boat. A few seconds later another rigger pops and we bring in that same steelhead with lure and leader in it's mouth. I'll be out friday off I-bay. Bill
