  1. That's Some Fishing Story! Interesting report. Glad all is safe.
  2. Sounds like it might be time to try to put one in the box in the Yak. But .. Yak doesn't have a box for the size of some of the Kings we've seen. i guess I'll deal with that issue when the time comes.
  3. Thanks that was quick. I should have searched here first.
  4. I saw some recent posts of nice fish caught using Bigweenies shark week fly. I searched their web page but couldn't find it. Was wondering if anyone had a pic or other info on it, Thanks,
  5. From Bill's article Sunday What do ya say, "beginners luck", 'right place-right time", "that's fishin" or all of the above?
  6. Bill Hilts write up of the Fall LOC derby winners can be found at this link. Article has some interesting details. http://www.outdoorsniagara.com/bill_hilts_sundays.htm
  7. Did my personal best 31lb king a week ago off Oswego on a Moonshine Rachet Jaw spoon that was mainly blue. It's mainly blue to human eyes on the surface, but who know's what it appears to a big salmon down 105. Here's a link to the spoon. http://www.gloutdoors.com/regularratchetjaw.aspx First fish I ever caught with it, although I can't ever remember trying it before last Thursday It will see some more playing time.
  8. Thanks for the info. Do the more males go first on a run or do more females go up first?
  9. We got some dark 10-12 lbers off Oswego also, mixed in with the bigguns last week. I asked RJ if they were in fact adults going spawning or did the juveniles also darken up? Its interesting how they change colors/bahavior and what causes the change.
  10. Nice Fish Congrats to you both Now if the Atlantics could get that big on Seneca.........
  11. Tom,After seeing you carry your heavy box after docking and then at the Fair Haven Challenge weigh-in, I look forward to your future reports. The tip you gave me for the next day was a good one. Although we didn't make the LOC derby board we managed some nice Kings, Thanks and keep up the good work.
  12. Highlights were the double big screamers with you and your dad on the rods with the second hit video taped and landing them both. Also the triple on Thursday was classic. You have to love the kind of chaos they can make. Thanks again RJ for the good times.
  13. Screamer, I apologize if I implied a member of Team Screamer said any of the humorous dialog heard when they were scanning the tagged fish. Although I've heard and read about Screamer I wouldn't recognize any. The fisherman was cooperating with the biologist and I believe he did tell the Biologist where the fish was caught. I did not put it in the post as that is what Fishing Reports are for. Sorry to hear about the boat problems. I ain't pointing finger at anyone I just thought it was all pretty witty banter. I guess some didn't. Sorry if I implied any uncooperation on Screamers part. Again thanks to all who made for a good tournament.
  14. I noticed there were more girls participating at the weigh in than boys. Perhaps the women's recent W in the Oswego Scotty started something....
  15. There have been recent posts on the Salmon Crazy board where the guides only post and they've been getting them in the dark recently, see http://www.salmoncrazy.com/vforums/forumdisplay.php?57-Guide-Sponsors-River-Reports
  16. Talked to my neighbor here at Cross Lake camp who went on a charter Sunday out of Oswego and they got their limit... of bass after they couldn't get a king to hit. I guess that might tell us something. They had fun fishing..... the catching was the hard part. Good luck.
  17. NICE PIG Big Fish making rods shatter PRICELESS. Now the weight begins.......will a 40lb be entered?
  18. Congrats on the win and the big fish with the kid. Nice report. Always gotta like the chaos especially with kings. With the fish coming in tight there may be hope for the lilboat or my pedaling kayak. Goonna try to box one in the yak this season.
  19. Saw this article today in the on-line Auburn Citizen. http://auburnpub.com/news/local/article_f81ea358-b376-11df-bd3d-001cc4c03286.html Can I have the keys to test drive it? I promise I won't go too fast and I promise to take some fresh samples during the Fall Derby combat trolling season.
  20. Congrats to the crews who organized, won, or participated in the (I now knpw why they call it) Fair Haven CHALLENGE. The wind/waves weren't too bad but what about those widely spaced leftover ROLLERS? I thought I was stuck in an elevator that didn't know whether to go up or down. Did manage to box 2 fish, 1 being a Nice Coho that weighed just over 14 3/4 pounds. Nice to talk with the folks at the weigh-in / awards ceremony. I also watched the DEC biologists scanning the fish for tags in their heads. One beeped when they scanned a nice King from the box of Team Screamer/A-TOM-MIK. They wanted to record where the fish was caught and when asked by the Biologist....., "Where'd you catch the fish?" The first answer was, "Out in the lake." Biologist: "I know you caught it in the lake, .... but where?" Fishermans next answer was made simply by pointing north toward the big O. Back at it again Sunday. Good luck to all.
  21. Congrats to you and the team on winning the Oswego Scotty. Hopefully we'll hear some fishin stories about it at the Fair Haven Challenge. Lookin forward to it.
  22. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:Lilboat / Aboard: Cruz Con-Troll ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):8/21 Time on Water: 2:30 till 7:30 Weather/Temp: Cloudy with a lil shower / Comfortable Wind Speed/Direction: 10 -15 South Waves: 1-2's Surface Temp: 74 Location: Out of Fair Haven LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 8 and half Total Boated: 7 Species Breakdown:5 Kings 2 browns Hot Lure: Glow ghost, 42nd and C.B. Trolling Speed: 2-2.5 Down Speed: 1.8-2.5 Boat Depth: 100-160 FOW Lure Depth: 55-120 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Decided to go to Fair Haven today with RJ and Dave as the weather for Sunday looked to be not too nice. Thought about some other venues but wanted to see what was going on with the Kings at the big O. Started in ~100 FOW and headed out, had the first hit on the 42nd spoon on the starboard rigger down 110 after we had made the turn to go back in around 150FOW. Nice screamer that put up a good fight for me all the way in. Had to get the jackhammer to get the hooks out of that one. Dave was next up and he saw the slider go on the same rigger, 6lb brown, on a glow ghost. RJ's turn delivered the hit he likes to see/hear the best... Dipsie screamer ....green on green 28lb King. Starboard rigger goes again and I land another nice King about 22-23lb. The bite slowed between 5-6 PM until we get a hit on the C.B. lure on the port rigger during the rain shower, another screamer which came unbuttoned as it took a peak at the new big black net and decided to head back to the bottom as Dave was trying to head it away from the starboard rigger. Dang. Next to go was the starboard dipsie out 330 white on white, so RJ drops his C.B. lured dipsie down to 330 and as Dave is fighting his screamer RJ's dipsie gets hit. DOUBLE screamers. During this time the starboard rigger takes some small bounces but never releases. Almosy a triple. Most likely a small brown pecking at the slider. We manage to get both nice Kings in. Nothing on the slider after we check it. End the day with a small brownie on the slider which we get loose easily. Once again copper was quiet. Temp break was ~105 and some bait was marked 60' down in many places as well as on the bottom in 100FOW. Saw some nice hooks and boated some nice kings. Another good trip to the big O. I believe the big boys are showing up again. Hope they decide they like the scenery and want to extend their visit. Thanks RJ for another memorable trip. Pics hopefully to follow.
