  1. Nice fish! We fished it Saturday morning. 9 fish boated, all kings but nothing over 12 pounds. Only kept one that was gill hooked and not going to make it. Traffic was insane! We kept running into a guy that was fishing out of a blue Lund using his bow mount electric to steer with. He was not paying any attention where he was going while setting out his rods. Got close enough to have a normal voice conversation with him. He spouted off about outside boats need to yield to boats on the drop. I said nicely that he pushed us out in 150' of water and that there were two other boats outside me that he pushed out as well. He looked at his fish finder, shrugged his shoulders and finally turned back in towards the drop. We just turned around heading the other way at that point just to get away from him. We came back up and low and behold the same guy decided to turn around right in front of 4 or 5 boats to get back on the drop going the other direction. Yelling at other boats to get out of his way. I promptly name him Mr. Ontario, because his family MUST own Lake Ontario. LOL! There are some bigger fish there. Our friend was fishing right along side us and got 4 up to 24 lbs. They dropped 5 others. It's only going to get better in the next two to three weeks. If you fish it, keep your cool and don't let Mr. Ontario push you around!
  2. Fly Leaders I am looking to tie some leaders and want to get opinions on hook manufactures and sizes everyone else uses. Both treble and octopus styles. If you use two single hooks, what do you use?
  3. Nice work Eyecatcher! Welcome to Lake Ontario fishing. Keep the reports coming.
  4. I have 4 Shimano Triton 100-G listed on here. $150 takes them all.
  5. Will also be in Olcott next weekend.
  6. I have two 9-1/2 footers I would be willing to let go. Will be in Olcott next weekend. Let me know if interested.
  7. Shimano Triton 100-G reels Four lightly used Shimano Triton 100-G level wind reels. I bought them to use for spring brown fishing. Just haven't made it up in the spring recently. Spooled with 10 lb Trilene. $40 ea or $150 for all 4 . Located in Ohio. Willing to ship at buyers expense.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. So how did you do Sunday Tim? You were coming into the dock as we were heading back out for the afternoon bite.
  13. Two 30* lb kind, 2 steel and 1 brown in 230'. Cold water inside
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I got reports from 3 different sources that the Bar came alive this week. I had planned to fish it this weekend. But my wife blew out her knee. She just had an MRI, so I have to stay around home. Thought I would share what I herd to try and help some others. The best king bite has been early and late. Riggers down 70' to 85' and wire dipsies back 210' to 240' on a 2 setting. All spinnies and flies fished SLOW. Green seems to be the best color. Speed between 1.4 to 1.7 over 90' to 180'. If you fished the Bar before you know that is a narrow band of water. The boat traffic is thick at that depth. Patience and courtesy is the name of the game when battle fishing. If you hook a big fish, slide out to deeper water and fight the fish away from the traffic. It will save a lot of tense moments. Especially if you have a big one run under another boat and through their rigger wires. Good luck and catch a big one for me.
  20. Congrats! Love to see those youngsters smiles. You did a lot better than we did Sunday Tim. We started in shallow in the morning and ran out to 450' and only pulled a few.
