  1. On the line end a swivel is needed to eliminate line twist. On the lure end the idea is to have the lure twist and turn with the attractor, thus sometimes no swivel. There are some brands with a swivel. I personally like the "Gold Star" items with the wrap in connection that looks like an open spring to attach the lure leader. Wish all brands would use them. On the morn of 9/8 we caught a nice King that did not fight too well in front of the Salmon River. He had a prfectly good fly in his mouth. The loop was in tact. I guess somene forgot to close the clip. He probably just finished his previous fight.

  2. Jason: I have tipped a few cold ones with Sammy (Sunshine Charters) in the good old days when Nick Riggi was running the North Sandy Pond Marina. Glad to have you aboard

  3. I also ran out of Sandy Pond very early saturday. It was still dark as I was going thru the channel. Put down at 100FOW. Put one down to 42 ft, was putting the second one down, the first was sreaming. 6 lb acrobatic steelhead. After fully setting up, trolled to 150 FOW without a release. Trolled back to 111 and had a double with 3-4 lb browns. Trolled a few more hours with only one more small brown. Not much of a morning. Tried in front of the Salmon early Sunday, but only one small steelhead. Not much boats out saturday or sunday near the pond. Only saw one boat coming out a bit after me. was probably "Bob Pugh". Hopefully the kings will be moving this way soon.

  4. Tight Lines: the most useful item for me is the NDBC buoy located 20 miles north of Rochester. It is station #45012. You can access the imformation on the internet or by phone # 1-888-701-8992. I usually call before I get my coffee made in the morning. If you call, just follow the instructions and you can access wave, wind,water temp data within the last 20 or so minutes. Even though I fish out of Sandy pond, the data is very accurate. This tool is "deadly" for knowing what the conditions are previous to arriving at the dock. It has thankfully sent me "back to bed" more than once. Give it a try


  5. Nick: I have been fishing Ontario for 25 years and had my boat registered in Pa for 20 years and it has spent most of the season docked in Sandy Pond. I never had any problem. Lately, since I bought a cottage, I have registered the boat in NY. The trailer is still registered in PA, but I very rarely use it. It is used just to store for the winter. The fact is, boat registration is less expensive in NY, but the trailer registration is less in PA. Go figure.


  6. Hey Mike: I am also from NE Pa., Wilkes Barre to be exact. I've been fishing Ontario since the mid 80's and I am addicted. I try to get to Sandy pond every weekend in spring/summer. There are many people from NE Pa (W-B, Scranton, Hazleton) fishing in this area. I fish out of Sandy Pond, which is just south of Henderson. My boat is a Sportcraft 230 fisherman called "Desperado". I am sure you will be wandering a few miles south in the spring. Try me on the radio.

  7. Dave: I can understand your anticipation of a good fishing trip when you return. My son just finished about 9 years in the Navy, most of which was aboard a forward deployed Carrier. He was very anxious to re-live some of his memories as a 12 year old in the late 80's pulling in massive salmon from the "power plant" to Sandy Pond. I fish out of Sandy Pond, which is just a few miles south of you. You are always welcome aboard my boat. I have a camp on Sandy Pond and could always use another person on board. Give me a shout when you return. Thank you for the sevrvice and STAY SAFE !!!
