  1. Jealous! Great day on the water! We're very fortunate to have such an awesome fishery on our door step. Love the last pic of seasoned fillet. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Thanks all! Definitely will be going on my fishing wall of fame. Tight lines everyone.
  3. Went out for a few hours with my Dad and tried our luck. Managed to pick up 2 nice browns, one 25 ft down, 50 ft back mid channel. Crushed a Sutton. Both off riggers. Snapped this pic right when fish started to squirm! Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I saw the picture the other day of the 25 LB brown caught and was curious to know how that Lake O beauty stacks up against fish taken in years past. Does anyone have a wall hanger above the fireplace or safely released a Brown over 25 lbs? Do you think our fishery has what it takes to rival this New Zealand beast? Looks like this fish was cheating.. eating pellets washed down from a Salmon farm. Smart fish.... http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/excursions/post/enormous-new-zealand-brown-trout-possibly-a-world-record/ Considering the current world record is from Lake Michigan back in 2010 I think our waters have just a good a chance as any to produce a world record Brown. asl
  5. Thanks for insight. This time of year are you keeping most lures high up in water column or are you dropping some down deeper on riggers? I was marking some fish near the drop offs you mention but assumed they were schooling walleyes down 20-30 ft.. I kept all of my spoons down between 5 and 10 ft and 40 to 60 ft back... Ps - this hoops NCAA Championship game is a great game! Thanks again Asl
  6. With yesterday's stiff off shore breeze I used my better judgement on my shake down cruise to stay inside I-Bay and try and locate some Spring Browns. I've never fished inside the Bay and assumed that fishing as close to the mouth of Irondequoit Creek would be a good spot for some fish dropping back or congregating in the warm water coming into the Bay. I didn't realize how shallow the water gets long before you reach the mouth of the creek which made fishing difficult at the South end of the Bay. Is there a certain area of the Bay that tends to be more productive than others this time of year for Spring Browns? I spent most of the morning cruising the 5ft -10 ft contour line along the shore around the 104 bridge with limited success. 1 hit but fish spit the hooks... Any insight is appreciated! I have to imagine there are some big fish cruising in the Bay and look forward to giving it another go..... thanks, asl

    Sol, How'd you do this past weekend? We went 1 for 2 Friday night. Beautiful 48" that we released to grow to 50+. Also landed a monster walleye on Saturday. Probably around 15 lbs... Hope you had a good weekend. Great to be out on the water.

    Solgrande, See you on the water. Should be a great weekend to drag some lures.

    I'm headed up Friday as well. Good luck. My buddies boated and released two quality Muskies out on the shoal on Monday night. Hopefully the full moon weekend makes them hungry.
