  1. Something that small you should be able to get in at the Bay bridge at least Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. May is fun because there's a lot of variety, but it can also be overwhelming for a newbie because a lot is going on. I made a quick "how to" to explain some things I think a person might ask or want to know. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Just the bay bridge shop now Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I'll second the gambler rigs- both cowbells and death traps Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Hey guys- I made this to kinda "shorten the learning curve" for the new guys- basically a what, how and where for early season trolling on the east end of Lake Ontario. Enjoy! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  7. Nothing better than a gambler rig! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. First of all, where the hell are the brown trout? Reports have been dismal, and I patrolled 3.5 miles of shoreline today without a sniff. The lack of cookie cutters is very concerning to me. Anywho, I brought my 6 year old with me today, and after a few hours I needed to get the kid some action. No worries, the lakers were happy to oblige. We did a half dozen in short order in cowbells and death traps and went in at 10:30 with a very happy kid. Gambler rigs really are top notch laker producers. Boat ran great (finally!). 80-110 was best for us but sounds like they found them shallower and deeper. Thank goodness for lakers I guess. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Definitely has been poor for just about everyone! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. Here's day 2 of the sodus pro am. A great bite on big mature kings. We averaged 20 lbs for our 6 fish limit, good for ~180 pts. Our bite was a deep spoon program- 90-110 riggers and 500 copper. Enjoy! The Fishin’ Physician Assistant

  13. You could l literally write a book about water temps, currents, and fish behavior as it pertains to those factors. From June on, the basic idea is this- warm water on top and progressively colder as you go deeper. Current is west to East, and prevailing wind is also from the west. West wind, and north or south wind Things get tricky in a few scenarios: 1. East wind. Wind fights the current, and very easily causes an inversion (flip) where cold water comes rushing into shallow water. The sudden change of temps from the 70s to 38-42 is common. It stuns the fish and they scatter. Every now and then a surface bite works nearshore, but usually you need to search more for stable water 2. STRONG south or north wind can cause sudden upwelling if cold water. It causes the same scenario as 1. I will say it usually takes sustained winds of 15+ for hours to do this. 3. strong west winds. This usually means warm water piles up on the east end. Temps will be deeper and deeper, as you described sometimes 140+. If you can find any pockets of cold water, beat them to death. Otherwise, move out deeper where there is usually colder water. Hope that helps. The Fishin’ Physician Assistant
  14. Big fish Friday and day 1 of the sodus pro am. Several big blows got things stirred up good. We focused on kings and definitely got the bites we needed, but had trouble sticking them and keeping them dialed in. Enjoy the video! The Fishin’ Physician Assistant
  15. Oswego to salmon river is the best in late August, but those fish are so damn temperamental! The Fishin’ Physician Assistant
