    Charter Capt Does All The Fishing?

    I think the typical is that captains do the setup and most net. On the boat I mated on in college, we didn’t touch the rod after we set up- customers set the hook, reeled, etc. if they wanted to net we let them, but with the disclaimer that lost Fish were on them. It varies from boat to boat though. It’s an incredibly specialized way of fishing- the vast majority of our customers had no clue what was going on and were happy to let the crew do all the work. For what it’s worth, when I go on a charter I generally expect the captain and mate to do all of the rigging. That’s why I’m paying after all- their expertise Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. We hit the water early for a short trip in the rain. I knew there were stagers and given our short time window I resolved to work those inside Fish. The plan really payed off, as we were 8-12 on kings by 10 am, with a 4 really nice kings around 20 lbs. we had 2 doubles and never went more than 30 mins without a hit. Mostly a spoon and fly bite, though that is because I forgot my cutbait!! We worked 110-130 right out front, down 40-80. Temp was in the low 50s down 35. The Fishin' Physician Assistant
  5. We brought the boat out to the oak this week for family vacation. We launched Saturday at 5:45 and were Fishing by 6:10. We set up in 120 fow a mile east, with mag spoons on riggers down 30 40 and 50, and meat on dipseys and coppers. Pretty much immediately we were into Kings and steel. We worked a mile long stretch of water 1-2 miles east, and picked away at 2-3 year old kings, with some nice steelies mixed in. We ended up with our biggest king of the year (25 lbs) and our boat record steelie, a 15 pounder! We were 10-15 by 11 am. Sunday, we went to our water from the day before and immediately got into fish, but they were tiny and the marks were a lot less. We took a peek in 100 and our to 160 and it didn’t look good, so we blew out to the 29 line on a north troll. We found a pod of very active fish at the 30 line and put together a nice box of juvenile kings and steelies. No big fish today, but the numbers were better. We were 12-16, mostly on regular sized dreamweaver uv spoons. More to come this week The Fishin' Physician Assistant

    Sodus Pro am pre fish Friday

    Here is the newest video. Good Fishing on mature kings for me and Andrew- was a bit tough getting them to stick with just the two of us and a strong south wind. Enjoy!! The Fishin' Physician Assistant
  7. I think 1300 and 2700, I think. I knew the inside water was gonna flip, that’s why we roughed it out in the deep, stable water. Where’d ya find the laker? We spent about 20 mins trying to find one- and if we had, we would have gotten 2nd! The Fishin' Physician Assistant
  8. It was pretty gross out there- 3-4s from multiple directions. Turning was no fun! The Fishin' Physician Assistant
  9. My brother, as well as my buddies Andrew and Jordan fished the am division of the Sodus Pro am, as usual. Fishing has been great, with salmon coming regularly in 80-200 fow the last few weeks, so we knew this was gonna be a salmon tourney. I didn’t even bother scouting for Browns, because they have been pretty easy to catch. The plan for big fish Friday was to search out the salmon both near shore and offshore. We started in 120, and found a nice pod of matures just west of port in 170-210. We went 2-5 in there, with a couple of mid teen kings and the rest screamers that we lost. Recongnizing that we had that group of Fish figured, we went out deep to find those fish. I saw that the forecast was for south and then ne wind, so I knew the offshore bite might be very important. We found the fish again in 270-320, hitting them on a north south troll. We ended up going 5-8 out there, with one dandy king and some more low teen fish. Our BFF box was about 4 lbs out of the money, but a respectable 48+ lbs. they wanted a mag carbon 14, on just about setup. Meat took a few shots but wasn’t prominent. Saturday greeted us with strong se winds. We started in 180 and had 3 hits, but only boated one. It was getting iced out in there quick, as I worried it would, and we went out to our deep waypoints. Once we hit 280 we had 2 shots on legit screamers that we missed- so that by 9 am we were 1-5 on big fish. I was upset, but my guys weren’t and we kept on the grind.. luckily, we boxed our next 7 bites, all kings except for one steelie. We had a mix of 3 year olds and 2 year olds. They wanted meat, and quite deep. Our hits all came 80-110 down, even though the temp was 54 down 60. We needed to weigh 2 Fish around 5 lbs, and those 4 missed screamers really hurt our finally tally. Either way, we ended up with 123 pts, good for 3rd place!!! Sunday was cancelled after a big nor’easter, so Saturday’s results stuck! We ended up winning 800 bucks- not too shabby! Here is a pic of our gps- we beat the hell out of this spot. My buddy Jordan did some excellent driving in the 3-4 footers out there! We got our butts beat out there! The Fishin' Physician Assistant

  13. Nice fish, but 30 lbs? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. We did an afternoon trip today, as frankly that’s all my hectic life could accomodate. I heard the king Fishing has been intermittently great, but that they bite in bunches and stop as soon as they start. We started the day looking for Browns, so by about 3 pm we were setting up in 30 fow. It was bath water in there, so we trolled north till we found 60 degree water in 75 fow. We worked that for a few hours and caught some brownies, nothing huge but fat healthy fish. They wanted 300 coppers and 180 dipseys with black spoons. There are NO fleas in there- how nice! By 5:30 we decided we wanted kings, so we pushed out to 100-150 and worked mag spoons and meat rigs. We did manage a few smaller kings (10 lbs and less) and missed 2 legit screamers, including one that burned out 400 feet of line, shot to the surface and jumped 3 feet out of the water... and spit the hook. Overall, a good short afternoon run. Back in 2 weeks. The Fishin' Physician Assistant
  15. Yes to all of this. And keep the buy in 300 or less. The Fishin' Physician Assistant
