  1. I sincerely hope the sky is not falling, looking forward to the final analysis of the bait fish trawls. Good luck on the water boys!
  2. ........havent checked in here for a long while, but damn, its an entertaining place!
  3. a few pics here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157670120069682 lakers are not hard to catch vertical jigging when theyre in the mood. All these from Lake O, usually fishing in 80 to 100 fow.
  4. Ive had very limited success with vertical jigging open water. Yes, lakers will sometimes be cooperative but other than that Ive only managed 1 rainbow and 1 shaker chinook vertical jigging. Ive been using metal jigs. Maybe its my technique or whatever , it just hasnt paid off with any large salmon yet.
  5. this is the most entertaining thread Ive read all month last year I saw a post about someone cutting open a laker and pulled out about 18 plastic worms. That one must have been really hungry or really stupid
  6. .......some guys get carried away with body piercing
  7. ok boys, thanks, sounds encouraging!
  8. well, not expecting huge, but gotta be some 30s around somewhere. Were going to start the big derby soon up here, I think its going to be an interesting year.
  9. Just been looking through some of the catch reports and Im seeing some nice fish silver fish. Just wondering anybody getting any Large fish, anything over 30 pounds being caught? Seems like there used to be more larger fish in other years. Maybe theyre still coming? Where are the 30 pounders?
  10. Some of them have different markings and coloring, but other than that I wouldnt be able to tell. A Bio prob would know better.
  11. from some research Ive done its seems that (depending which document Ive seen) theres at least 3 and maybe even as many as 8 different strains of lake trout being stocked into lake Ontario. I wonder if theres any taste difference between the strains. That might be a reason some people claim to like the taste and others say its bad?
  12. a friend of a friend ask me to save a couple for his smoker. after a couple weeks , I got back a couple chunks to try. Really awful. I do sometimes fish with a guy who will eat anything we catch, so I dont have to release bleeders and floaters here he is with one from last year, he love them: but really, you guys eat browns? I dont think theyd be any better?
  13. ding ding ding.........Winner "post of the year" thanks for the chuckle
  14. sweet. I might get hung for saying this, but I wish we had those in lake O. (ducks behind cover)
  15. I never fish that deep. I find lots of lakers in 70 - 90 fow.Thats part of what I like about jigging you dont have to burn gas to get half way out onto the lake. Sometimes they are even shallower, in the spring they can be in 30 ft or less. If your trying to jig them up from 180 ft youl would have a lot of trouble keeping your line vertical with a 2 to 4 oz jig. Even in 80 ft I just play them slow and you can see when they release the air. Make sure you let them release the air and you wont have any troubles with floaters that have distended bellies and cant get back down. Also jigs with single SHARP hooks do minimal damage. Ive always been trolling for them but this is something new Ive been trying and Im having fun with it. I wondering if rainbows browns and salmon could be caught this way?
  16. want to try something different? try jigging for them. https://www.flickr.com/photos/gordymohr/sets/72157645207485918/
  17. well, i just read the whole thread. wow. you boys shouldnt play so rough, somebodys going to end up crying. if there were no more king salmon in lake O it wouldnt really bother me that much. I fish for trout more often than salmon. actually only go after salmon if I have guests on board who really want to fish for them.as I dont enter derbys I dont go after them much. Im one of the few who actually target lake trout. I like rainbows and browns as well. Recently have begun to learn how to jig for lakers and its been fun. and fishing is supposed to be fun. Ive read so many reports on another site where guys are chasing around the lake burning gas and time looking for salmon and complaining about no fish. Thats not fun. guess Im just easy to please. that is all. Good Fishin
  18. similar to the Big Weenie grease traps, which I can recommend as lake trout killers.
  19. i used to fish large size cowbells years and years ago, but never liked the amount of drag they put on the line , over time I began searching for a better solution and for a couple of years used the Panther Martin attractors, they worked even better than the large cowbells and caught even more fish. Then I came across the "grease traps" sold by Big Weenie Brand and they outperform even the Panther Martin attractors. If your after lake trout these things are incredible. Fish them with a Plazma spoon or a Spin n Glo and they outperform any other rig I ever tried for lake trout. I target lake trout a lot , the grease traps are lake trout killers. They are not cheap, but they work very very well.
  20. I bought one and modified it to use for lake trout fishing. Im going to test it soon.
