  1. Looking at their color chart I don't see a NBK but I see a cyclonite which looks like a NBK is this the same spoon?
  2. Thanks for the input. I like to run mags mixed in when I 'm running my flasher pattern. I will try some of these. We have been using their shiver minnows for walleyes in the low light conditions and they are deadly.
  3. I have been wanting to pick up some moonshine spoons. Seeing there are a bunch of colors to choose from, could those of you that have success with these spoons give me some colors to start with, also are you running the 4 inch or the mags.
  4. Most of the juvy kings will move offshore this time of year 500 to 600 feet of water.Most of the browns will move inshore soon to spawn, I've seen huge schools of them in Fairhaven bay in Oct. You can catch them at the State boat launch on stickbaits.The steelhead will be spread all over, some moving in to spawn but we have also caught them out in 600 fow fishing the juvy kings
  5. I was running my dipsys with wire line on a 2 setting out from 220 to 250. Tried one at 300 and caught zebra mussels in 90 feet of water. Even when it is busy, you should be ok out 250. No one should cut you off there.A couple of things about running dipsys, your turns need to be wider or your inside dipsy will get into the bottom and let them out slow or they can twist on the way down and cause a mess. Make sure you have good metal rod holders or the fish will tear the rod off the boat. I like to run my dipsy rods as low to the water as I can. Good luck with them, there is a learning curve.
  6. Fished in 100 feet of water on Friday off little Salmon. Great looking screen and went 7 for 7, all nice kings. 5 fish came on dipsys out 250 dialed to 2 with white or green flasher fly combos. 2 fish on green on green flasher fly combos down 85 on riggers. Fishing much slower 9/2. Went 3 for 6, 2 nice kings and a 15 pound hen coho. 2 on dipsys out 200 and 1 on green on green combo down 80 on rigger. Its a world class fishery.
  7. Fished out of Oswego in AM. Dropped a big fish on a wire dipsey, glow green flasher/fly and caught a 20 lb king 125 down on a green dalmation/fly. Did not see a lot of fish caught, marked a fair number of fish, all in the 200 foot range, 120 down.
  8. Don't know about your areas but here in CNY the geese had a great breeding year. Took the kids out fishing/swimming the other day and saw 2 pairs together with 23 little ones and 2 other pairs with 10 and 11 little ones with them. Looks like it will be a good Sept. season. They are going to need to give us more than 45 days for the regular season or this local population is going to get more out of control then they already are. I hope the breeding pair counton the tundra is up. It would be nice to see a 90 day season again.
  9. Kevin, Glad to hear the walleyes are showing up. We fished the first week of Aug last year and killed them jigging the deep water. The only time we could get up there this year is 4th of July week and I was afraid it would be too early. Last year we found the fish would be in 65 to 80 feet of water during the day and move up to 35 to 45 after dark. Maybe we'll see you on the water.
  10. Fished Otisco Saturday AM. Trolled with planner boards and plugs. We caught a brown, Tiger and walleye on the first pass. Tiger was 42 inches, a beautiful fish with a nasty set of chompers, our first tiger. We caught one more brown then things quit for us. A great day. Will try to post pictures.

    Oak Leaf Grubs

    Caught 150 oak leaf grubs this past weekend and want to try them but have a few questions. What kind of rig do you fish them on? What size color and style of hook? And which end do you hook them through? They look like you could fish them on a jig. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
  13. Four of us fished Guffin 01/22/12. Solid 5-6 inches of hard ice, easy walking. 20 tip-ups, 4 hours and had 3 flags. 1 big pickeral, 1 five pound pike and one 12 pound pike. Caught a few perch on jigging rods but nothing hot and heavy. The water was cloudy, I don't know if this affected the fishing, it is usually gin clear when we are up there. All in all a good day.
  14. Does anyone know if you can park off South Shore Road to access Sherwin Bay to ice fish?
  15. We fished the narrows from upstream of the bridge to A Bay. Fish wanted 40 to 60 foot ledges near deep water and current. Early and late.
  16. Spent the week of Aug. 1 to Aug. 7 at a friends camp near Clayton. Found the eyes in 40 to 60 feet of water near deeper water with current. Bucktails and spoons bounced on the bottom early in the AM or late in the PM. Tried to tip the jigs but just attracted lots of gobys. Fished mostly 2 oz. to keep vertical. Caught many eyes in the 23 to 26 inch range, very fat fish. We had a great time.
  17. Kevin, Great fish! I will be staying between ABay and Clayton next week and would love to catch some eyes. I was wondering what depth you are fishing and if one color of stickbait has been better? Thanks, Carl
  18. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):07/23/11 Time on Water:5:30 AM Weather/Temp:clear and hot Wind Speed/Direction:West Waves: 2-3 Surface Temp: Location:Oswego LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 7 Total Boated:6 Species Breakdown:Browns Hot Lure: silver/green stingers Trolling Speed: 2.5 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 70-80 Lure Depth: 65 and 70 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS My 13 year old son and I headed out of Oswego Sat. morning to try some kings. After 3 hours of changing lures in 150 to 220 fow without a hit we decided to give the browns a try. Good move. Lots of bait in 70 to 80 fow with browns mixed in. NBK and green glow alewife were the ticket. All hits but one came on the down wind troll probably due to better speed control. My son landed all the fish but one and took most off the riggers. It's quite a fishery when 6 to 12 pound browns are your fall back fish. We had a great day. ====================

  20. You can't beat the oak for it's summer fishing but a lot of big fish move East this time of the year.
  21. Gill-T, Thanks for the reply. I am going to try one on a down and out dipsy this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.
  22. Has anyone had any luck running the small spin doctors? If so how far behind the SD do you run the fly?
  23. 2 Cannon Mag 10 Electric Downriggers with adjustable boom arms and dual rod holders. Low profile swivel bases on Gimble mounts. Stored inside when not in use. All electrical connections. Auto shut off and pull cords. Excellent condition. Asking $550.00 for pair.
  24. I see reports titled "SANDY" and often wonder if this is Sandy Pond or Sandy Creek which is West of Rochester. Is there any way to determine this?
  25. How far behind 8 inch flashers should I run my flies and does this length include the snap swivel?
