  11. The landlocks get tough this time of year and lakers can really save a day almost always. I think our lake is changing quite a bit. The lampreys are being treated again, But we have a ways to go. Alewives have pretty much taken over and the smelt are not where they usually are. But we are adapting and seeing more bigger fish than at any time in the last 10 years. 8,9,10lb landlocks are there to be had and lakers finally getting in the mid teens. Also the last couple seasons the Browns have been really good early. Our best fishing is from Oct thru Ice up. Incredible salmon fishing this time of year. If you match the tackle to the fish they are really great sport..
  12. Here are few pics from last Saturdays trip. Stared out early in Whalons Bay and caught 6 short salmon in 2 hours. Decided to switch gears and bounce bottom for lakers. Had a really good day for Lake Champlain. Took all of our fish in 80 to 100 FOW with vertical blades and NN spoons. Here are a few pictures, I hope you enjoy them. view looking east towards Thompsons Point from Whalins Bay Frankie"Fishinmachine"Kurant with an average size LC laker Another And so on
  13. Just wondering if anyone uses any of the scents on the market and how they have worked. Some people use them here on Lake Champlain and I didnt know if it would be worth bringing or trying when I come out to Lake O in a few weeks. Some of the products I have tried are: Smelly Jelly which I found if not totally wiped off your lure afterwords will ruin the finish. MegaBite made by mustad Smeltrite made here in Vt
  14. Just looking to see the differences in the way people rig their boats. I have a Lund 2150 baron Magnum and I would like to see how other guys have rigged theirs up. Always looking for new ideas or ways to make things better or more ergonomically friendly.
  15. Products look great. I ask only because I am just starting to tape and design my own creations and also where I live there is a huge following of tapeheads. I will refer them to your site. Take care and thanks for answering my questions. <><
  16. Do you plan on carrying any glow tapes and making glow ladderbacks?
  17. I actually watched an episode on In Fisherman where they were trolling Lake O after dark for Kings and they smacked them pretty good. Just when everybody else was coming in for the night they were headed out. Then again with any of those shows it might of took them a week to get the 1/2 hour worth of footage I saw.

  20. Thanks guys. This is probably the best forum I have been on. Great information and sharing. Good stuff.-Shawn
  21. I am from VT and my gear is all for Lake Champlain mostly. I am coming to Lake O soon and wanted a starter package list of sorts. Spoons? What length and colors? Maybe a dozen? Line / What lb test & should I run 30Lb to deter fleas or buy Flea Flik'r? Rods? I have a bunch of 8'3 Ugly Stick downrigger rods I use for lakers, will these be adequate? Dodgers/Flashers/attractors? What sizes and colors if you were only gonna get a half dozen? I have several 3 1/4 to 3 3/4' spoons from Stinger and Northern King? Will these work or should I run larger sizes? And last where is the cheapest place to purchase all this equipment?
  22. I have only trolled Ontario twice. I have fished the rivers for Kings and steelies but trolling is my passion.Does anyone ever run vertical blades or blades attached to downrigger cable. How frequently do salmon hit close to the ball? I am coming out to Lake O in two weeks and fishing with a friend who hasnt fished there in 15 years we are staying in Oswego. I only have 12 pound weights. Will they be heavy enough at the speeds necessary for salmon fishing out there?I live in Vt and fish champlain primarily. I am ready to start fishing Ontario regularly. Any and all help will be appreciated. I am psyched!!
  23. I have copied the IMg code and pasted it with no results. Is there soemthing I am missing? Thanks for any and all help.
  24. I have been to every Cabelas website and cannot find the lowrance lcx27c or the globalmap 5200 anywhere. Somebody got a heck of a great deal.-Shawn
