  1. No we don't enter the derby. Maybe we should have this year.
  2. Best depth for us was 130 to 180 off the drop on the east end around the 02 line. We got all the way up into 60 and out as far as 220.
  3. I fished with my two sons this past weekend in Lake Ontario. We were staying in Olcott from Friday until Sunday. We rolled into Olcott about 4:00 PM Friday afternoon. We rigged the boat an headed out to catch the evening bite. We were disappointed with the action out of Olcott that night. We only caught 2 small kings that we released. We decided to head over to the Niagara Bar on Saturday morning to see if anything was going on down there. We heard rumors that the kings were starting to stage there. We were not disappointed. We caught majors ranging from 22 to 33 pounds. We took 9 fish on Saturday and 10 more on Sunday morning. I caught my personal best 31 pounder. My oldest son caught the biggest of the trip tipping the scale at 33 pounds. My younger son got one that weighed 28 pounds. I also caught my first Atlantic this trip. We took some huge rips on the wire dipsies. One broke the leader off the fly and the other straightened out the hook on the fly. Best set up’s were wire dipsies out on 3 settings at 250 with a size 0 dip and 150 on a mag dipsie set on a 1 setting and riggers parked at 60 to 80 feet down. Meat rigs took some nice fish. Spin Doctors in Mountain Dew with a green crinkle fly and white Spin Doctor with green dots with a green hammer fly also did well. The only spoon that really worked well, was a black NK Mag with raspberry tape with a white back. Seasick waddler also took a few shots. A great weekend with my boys! First time the 3 of us we were able to fish together all year and we made some lasting memories this trip. Netting a 33 pounder at sunrise Largest of the trip at 33 pounds My 31 pounder 28 pounds A great day! A nice silver 22 pounder.
  4. I do the same with my wire dipsie rods. Have not broken on off since and the hook up to land ratio increased as well.
  5. Great report Kevin.
  6. Exact same set up for the last 4 years for me as well. If I had only rig to fish, that would be my choice for western Lake Ontario!
  7. So how did you do Sunday Tim? You were coming into the dock as we were heading back out for the afternoon bite.
  8. Two 30* lb kind, 2 steel and 1 brown in 230'. Cold water inside
  9. Very nice! I will be going out of Olcott in the morning. I will look for a 24' Thompson and set up right along side!
  10. Give him a chance to make it right. He's always been a on the up and up with me. There must be some mix up with paperwork from last week or another good reason for the delay. I am sure it will all work out in the end. BTW - Congratulations on winning!
  11. That year lower unit is very difficult to find. I know, I had to replace mine last fall. Good luck on your search. If you do not find one, let me know if you are interested in buying a complete motor - same year. I am selling mine. It is the VRO oil injected model with tilt and trim.

Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:Just Ducky ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 8-3 to 8-5 Time on Water:mornings and evenings Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: calm to 30 mph Waves: flat to 6' Surface Temp: 74 Location: Olcott LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: Lots Total Boated: Species Breakdown: Kings and Steel Hot Lure: Mtn Dew Spin Dr with Atomic Green Crinkle fly Trolling Speed: 2.5 Down Speed: 2.2 Boat Depth: 430' Lure Depth: 80-100' ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Left home at 1:30 AM and drove to Olcott to catch the morning bite. Glad we did! Here is the mornings catch. We started in 180 ft of water and worked north until we started marking bait. We started poping rods around the 25 line, but they were steelhead. We were looking for Kings. Made some adjustments with lures and depths and started to fire on the Kings. We found a good concentration of matures around the 26/43 line. Here is my son's largest fish (not just salmon) ever! We headed in for lunch and to set up camp around noon. We went back out to see of we could finish up our limit. We did with a bang! We landed two bigs Kings weighting 28 1/2 and 26 1/2 along with a beast steelhead. Headed back in well before sunset to clean fish and catch some needed sleep. Here is the 28 1/2 ponuder. It turned out to be the biggest fish of the trip. We went back out Saturday morning and started at about the 25 line and worked north to our marks from the day before. I had just put the first rod in the water, the wire dipsie back 210' and BAM! This 22 lb king stripped 785' of wire off the spool on it's intial run. The sunrise was beautiful! We got chased of the lake Saturday evening by storms with 30 MPH winds leaving us 2 fish short of a limit. We tried to fish Sunday morning. But it was rolling. We did manage to land one 21.5" King in the 4-6' waves. We had one other knock-off but didn't stay buttoned up. Riggers were catching Kings at 80 - 100 down on Spin Doctors. The wire dipsies were on a 2 setting back 210 to 240'. Everyting was hitting on green on this trip. It was a great trip. Can't wait until next time.
  13. That's a beauty for spring Nick! Way to go! Keep up the reports. You are killing me having to sit here in the office and read about you and your wife living the dream. You have had beautiful weather nearly every day and the fish are cooperating.
