  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Just wondered if anyone out there has done any near shore smallmouth fishing from Sandy Creek to Webster.. I have not but I was just wondering if anyone has tried and and had any luck. If so can you reply with any information/details. Thanks!.
  8. Rick, I am headed out of Braddock around 7am. Cell # is 585-622-8742. Mr Kato
  9. Did you guys have problems with spiny flea buildup on your lines? I was out Thursday out of Braddock Bay and it was terrible.
  10. Not going out tomorrow (Wednesday) but most likely Thursday.
