  1. Fished it last weekend and did well. Everyone back at the ramp had trouble catching mature fish with all the shakers. One observation I would like to pass along. If you are catching only shakers, drop your set up below the shakers. We pulled fish between 14 and 24 lbs with limited shakers. The Federal Fisheries Biologist and NY Creel Survey crew were at the dock and said we did better than anyone else they checked.
  2. I herd the lake flipped late last week. How long after the lake flips does it take for the inside water to be fishable again? How long before the fish will start to stage at the river mouths? Does the water have to flip back or will the current coming out of the rivers return the inside water to a fishable temperature? Looking for your past experience of how long it will take. It seems like every year I plan my trip to Lake O and it decides to flip right before I get there making the inside bite non-existent. I don't mind running offshore. But sure is nice to come out of the harbor and set lines within 5 minutes of getting out on the water.
  3. Great stuff guys! Thanks for all your help. Big Dave - Yes 47LC. It's an older model, but still works great. It's just sitting on the shelf so I figured I would put it to use. One more question though. What length rod are you all using? Just a standard 9' - 10' dipsie rod? I realize I need to change the tip. Thanks for letting me know that as well.
  4. I have never run wire before and have a few questions. Do I spool the entire reel (Diawa 47) with wire or do I use a backing? I found 300' and 600' spools in both 30 lb and 45 lb. Which is best to use? I was reading on the Cabela's site that Opti-Tackle wire is not good to use with Dipsies? Has anyone ever run this brand of wire using dipsies? Any problems? Does anyone have a chart to show how deep wire runs with spoons only or with dipsies? Any other tips? Thanks!
  5. I talked to Kevin this morning. He was still stoked about the trip. Props to you Howie for taking a couple of Ohio boys out on your home turf. Sounds like you guys had a great trip.
  6. Thanks for the post Tim! I'll be in Olcott on Thursday through Sunday.
  7. I am thinking about replacing the treble hooks on my magnum spoons. I want to replace them with 4X strong. I have a bunch of different brands, Michigan Stinger, Silverstreak and NK's to name a few. What size do you think is best?

  9. With the cooler water being pushed on shore, will the fish be higher in the water column? They have been hugging the bottom.
