  1. Fished the Lanes yesterday 7-11am. Did a full loop from the wall north towards duck islands then west and south back to wall.

    We covered 100-180fow. Finished 4 kings (5lbs was biggest) and 6 lakers, all 10# plus...had to keep the gear off bottom to avoid the lakers.

    Most consistent marks/bait were on north side of Lanes near Canadian border in 120-130 fow (all kings caught there)... Down 80-100

    Did not mark or tangle with any matures but was good calm day out there.

    Good luck.

  2. Posted in here last night but don't see it today.

    Went out to the shipping lanes off of Henderson yesterday.

    Did 3 kings and 10 lakers from 6:30-9:30am.

    Lakers were hogs with an 18lber, 17lber and 2 14lbers.

    Kings were 4 lbs 11lbs and 16lbs. They came down 55, 60, and 70 ft respectively, over 180 fow. The 11lber and 16lber hit nearly simultaneously and caused quite the fire drill to clear lines!!

    Marked a few large bait schools down 35-60 ft over 150-180fow.

    Ran at 2.3-2.5 knots all morning. Don't have a probe but definitely think there was a significant current down there from the rigger cables and dipsies.

    Anyone fish the lanes with a probe and have an idea of what the current it typically like?

    Was glad to see some kings finally!

  3. Fished the Lanes and Galloo on 7/3. Got out to the Lanes around 7:00AM, set up in 150fow and fished 150 up to 85fow for a few hours. Marked some bait down near the bottom and a few solid marks near the bottom as we'll (assuming lakers). Had 3 riggers, 2 divers and a 300 copper going from 2.2-2.6 knots running mag spoons with FFs mixed in, no kings to speak of yet. Eventually slowed it down and took 9 lakers in 2 hours. 3 over 13lbs

    Headed into galloo to finish with a few bass. 2 weeks ago we trolled the north shore in 8-15 fow and caught 21, 16 of which were 2lbs+, with 2 around 5lbs. For some reason of the 15 bass we caught this time, only 2 had any size with 13 of them smaller than 2lbs... First time we've ever caught small bass in that area in numbers.

    The kings will be in soon...

  4. Headed out Thursday for some Fourth of July fishing....what a day!

    Checked for Browns on north side of Galloo from 6:30-7:30. Fished from 30 fow to 70 fow, nothing going. So we picked up and headed 5 miles north west to the "lanes". Marked quite a bit of bait down 40-100 ft. Fished 3 riggers down 50, 70, and 100. 2 dipseys out 150 and 210 (magnum dipseys on 2 setting, no O ring), and. 300 copper of the boards at 2.0-2.2knots.

    Went 6 or 8 on Kings in 3 hours with the biggest being 24lbs! Also picked up 7 lakers from 9-15lbs.

    Headed in early bc we had guests arriving but it was fun whole it lasted.

    Nk28s up high (Blue Dolphin) and Flashers and flies on copper and lower riggers were the ticket.


  5. I'm heading out Thursday from Cape Vincent, so Galloo is about as far South as we can manage.  Last Saturday we went 12-14 on browns on the north side of Galloo in 15-25 fow with stingers, but I'm sure things have changed in the past week and a half.


    Any suggestions on depth and location for browns and early Kings in that area would be appreciated!



  6. Fished from about 6:30am to 10:20 am..  Started a west troll on the north side of Galloo island.  We fished 3 michigan stingers of each planer with just a splitshot to catch weeds, and used 2 riggers.  Went 12 for 14 on Browns!  All were taken in 10-25 fow, near the surface off the boards.  Riggers picked up 2 nice smallmouth bass but no browns...


    The shallower planer that covered 8-15 fow took most of the fish with the brown trout imitation stinger the top producer.   2.5-2.7 knots seemed to be the ticket. Biggest brown was taken on board over 30 fow.  Was 1 trolling rod shy of our ideal 8 rod spread so we used a spinning rod with 8 lb test for the last rod...an hour in, we had a 10.5lb Brown trying to spool it!... landed it, but we learned our lesson.


    Also took an 8 lber in the prop wash while we were attaching it to a rigger.  Nearly took the rod off the boat as it wasn't in a holder yet...


    Surface temp was 61 degrees so I'm not sure how much longer they'll be active on the surface, but it was a blast!


    Tight lines,
