  1. Well that is certainly not a pretty site. Will probably get worse as the day goes on. May be even worse later today/tomorrow as northeast winds increase.
  2. Northeast winds for Wednesday and Thursday as remnants of Ida approach. Never have too much success with those winds. Good luck!
  3. BreakingBass - Regarding RPRN6: This is the weather sensor station at the end of the east pier (Summerville pier) at the mouth of the Genesee River in Rochester, New York. And I would also agree with you that looking at the Weather Bug website and camera 6 (Forest Lawn Beach) and camera 13 (Oak Orchard Lighthouse) can be helpful, I have been fishing Lake Ontario since the early 1980s in the boats of friends and in my own boats since 1986 and wind and wave forecasts for the lake still seem to be a difficult task for the weather service. I can remember a day in the late 1980s when fishing the Spring ESLO Derby when the forecast was for 4 to 6 foot waves and we were on the lake just to the west of the Genesee River fishing a flat like with barely a ripple on the water; there were even people out there in kayaks!! And then I was out there another day when the waves were supposed to be 1 foot or less and I got caught out near Sandy Creek in the early morning when the lake went from waves of less than a foot to 4 to 6 footers out of the east and I had to make it all the way back to Braddock Bay in those conditions. I am sure there are plenty of other people out there with similar stories, Just keep monitoring all those potential sources of information. - Mr Kato
  4. I believe that the buoy report is for the buoy that is approximately 20 miles offshore north-northeast of Rochester.
  5. Went out for a few hours on Thursday morning from about 9 to noon. Went out to 80 ft just to the NW of Braddock point and moved out to about 120 ft depth. Had a good screen with lots of marks down between 70 and 100 ft. 55 temp was down about 70 feet and dropped to 42 at around 90 ft. We did one king about 10 pounds down 90 on the rigger. Also did a small steelie and a small brown down around 65 to 70 on the rigger but neither of those fish tripped the releases. Both were pretty small at a pound or 2. Had a good screen with lots of marks but just couldn't get them to bite. Only had a few hours to fish but it was a nice day. Lake flat (maybe too flat). Lots of spiny fleas on the lines but they shook off fairly easily. - Mr Kato

  7. The near shore marine forecast posted for Rochester today (Sat July 10) listed the water temp off Rochester as 52 degrees. That is the water temp of the Monroe County Water Treatment Plant in Greece intake pipe which is something like 35 feet down. So 41 degrees at 58 ft is most likely realistic. A strong east-northeast wind persisting for 12-24 hours or more in the summer will often result in upwelling and the temp can drop 20-25 degrees in a day. The mechanism that does this is kind of like what causes tornadoes to occur (wind shear: winds going in opposite or crossing directions as you go up in height), Same thing happens with the water in the lake: flow beneath the surface is generally west to east; get a strong surface wind (east-northeast) and the water starts to rotate or upwell. Cold water could persist for many days until (as someone said above) the northwest or west winds blow again and brings the warmer water back in. I always look at that water temp posted for the near shore forecast for Rochester because that will give you and indication of what the actual water temp is at 35 ft and if you look at it every day it will give you information on whether the down temp (at least at 35 ft off Rochester) is getting warmer or colder.
  8. Can you provide any info on what water depth you fished and how deep you were fishing. Sounds like a great evening!! Maybe fishing is finally starting to pick up! - Mr Kato
  9. Also fished off Braddock on Wednesday from about 745 to 1115 any where from 60 to 150 ft of water. Also marked lakers on the bottom and occasionally some fish at 40-50 ft. Had 3 releases but no hookups. All the releases were in the 50 to 670 ft range and way off the bootom so maybe small fish (coho) that just could not hook up. Did not mark any bait pods either. Tough day! I also saw that boat in the high grass and wondered what the story was. Thanks for sharing that info. Could be very tough getting that boat out of there. Hopefully no one was seriously hurt/injured. - Mr Kato
  10. Do you have any specifics on depth of water you fished and where you were in relation to Braddock Channel? Out front? East? West? Any info would be appreciated since I plan to go out of Braddock on Wednesday or Thursday. Thanks! - Mr Kato
  11. I fished out of Braddock Bay on Wednesday April 14. Launched around 10 and fished until about 2:15/2:30. Started in front and just east of the bay because there was warm (54 degree) water there. But it was pretty muddy. So around 11:30 we headed west of the bay and found a little better (less muddy/more stained to clear) water around 51-52 degrees and over the next hour and a half picked up a small coho and 2 browns (each around 5 pounds). Had 1 other pretty large fish on but lost it near the boat. Had 2 other releases. So after a slow start for the 1 1/2 to 2 hours the last couple hours of the trip were pretty good. Had to get of the water a little after 2pm but may have caught some other fish in that area because the water seemed pretty good. Fished from 5 to 12 feet with most of the action in the 5 to 7 foot range. Did not go out much past 12 feet. - Mr Kato
  12. On Thursday I noticed Rochester Sport Fishing Charter was docked at Westpoint Marina and I sent Captain Kip an email and spoke with him on Thursday. He told me that the average depth thru the channel was 4 to 5 feet. It was a little shallower before you got to the channel markers going out and once clearing the markers on the lake side there was a sandbar out there that came up to about 3 ft. He said that he basically went thru the center of the channel without any issues. And his boat is somewhere in the 25 ft range. - Mr Kato
  13. longspurs: where did you launch at Braddock? Did you go out thru the channel? If so could you tell the depth thru the channel? I had heard that they were dredging the channel. Was the dredge still there or is it done? Just wondered because I have a 21 ft Crestliner that I would like to take out but still concerned about the low water level/depth of water in the channel, Any info would be appreciated. Thank you! - Mr Kato
  14. I thought that last year after the channel was dredged that the channel depth was 4 to 6 ft? So even with the level down shouldn't there still be 2-4 ft of depth thru the channel? For the gentleman that bottomed out with your jon boat, did you bottom out in the channel? Farther back in the bay? Or out in the lake past the last channel marker? Just curious. I have a 21 ft Crestliner and obviously am worried about launching/trying to get out in the lake to fish. Forecasts are for the lake to rise 11-12 inches by mid April, if that is any good news.
