  1. I movie on Mac Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Yes, I have a GoPro hero 2. I was fishing from Wilson out front to about 3 miles west. 150-200 fow Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yeah, my team knows what they are doing and we had some straaange stuff happen this weekend. We only caught about 70% of our hits, and they were all over the rods! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Good fishing man. Those 2 year olds might not be big, but they fight hard and are a ball to catch! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Yes!! Apparently they do- there are 2 rigger reels that need work. The dipseys I had to tighten the drag a bit, cause with the east wind and west current they were constantly ticking out line... they were certainly tighter than I would normally have them.

  6. I made this video from footage from Sunday. Unfortunately missed the first 8 bites, as I was never able to get set up and have things calm down enough to get it going... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Nice. Way the find the big ones! We caught a ton of 8-14 lb kings, which are fun but not enough to win a 3 fish tourney Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Lol, hard to imagine what I needed to do to place... We caught ~30 salmon in 2 days... guess just needed more luck? Tough to be disappointed when the fishing was so good though Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Did the proam in olcott again this year. What a great few days!! Thursday- we started out front of Wilson and trolled west towards the bar. We started working 60-90 fow, but only had 2 coho after about 4 miles. When we trolled back east, we had 5 quick king bites in 100-140, so we had a starting point for Friday. They wanted all spoons, mostly uv regular sized stuff. Friday- we got our butts kicked all morning. The strong nw wind made the 8 mile run miserable, and the fish just weren't in that water from 80-120. We boated a handful of coho and a laker, but needed size to compete. We moved out to 140-220 just west of Wilson and it turned on! From 10-12:30 we had ~15 bites, all salmon. They wanted meat and flasher/fly- and much deeper. 80-110 riggers and 270 dipseys were the ticket. We had a ton of 2 year old kings, and our box came up short. 65 pts put us in 10th place? Either way, a great day fishing with 20 bites. Sunday- the ne blow had me worried. I thought our fish would be gone.... they weren't. It was non stop action all day, 150-200 fow just west of Wilson. We had 30 bites, all kings, all 2-3 year olds. We had 8 bites before 6:30 (and before I ever got my full spread out). They wanted meat deep- 300-500 coppers, riggers 80-100 down, dipseys 270+. Everything was firing, and we had action literally all day long. Unfortunately we didn't have the weight to compete in the ams.. our 72 pt box was just outside of placing. Oh well... I love spring kings. They just fight so hard. What a blast. I love this tourney and the fishing this time of year down here!! By the way- that atommik meat is solid! Holds up great!

  11. Sodus really has been solid this year. Really good brown fishing. I just moved the boat to Wilson, and rotted yesterday! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. What a strange day. The screens in 150-300 were just crazy, bait and fish everywhere. Just caught a a steelie and a coho on top, missed a few shots on the riggers... that was it. I don't get it? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. ... not really. 3 bites from olcott to Wilson... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. It won't be 1-3s in Mexico with 15+west winds. More like 4s. Strong west winds are not fun on that end. The waves have 200 miles to get big and angry Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. The kind and ethical thing would to go idle speed no wake, regardless of what the law is saying... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
