  1. I would think that the matures would be pretty much done by the middle of September. I would watch the weather and if good I would run out to 250 fow and troll south. You should get bows, hos and immature kings that time of the year. I've had some great days fishing that time of the year.
  2. I pulled my boat out of Newcastle last sunday. We went for one last fish before pulling the pin. We went 5 for 6. 3 bows and 2 kings (one shaker, 1 around 8 lbs). We only fished for a few hours and was far from prime time (9am-1 pm). kings both came on dipsy with SD/fly. Bows on spoons down 50 ish. fished from 200 fow - 300 fow.
  3. I got a coho today just over 2o lbs along the north shore. Had all its fins so either it was missed or natural. It is a beauty fish!

Back at the lake and at 730. After much dscussion we decided to give it a try (my daughter pushed me to it!) Went out to 50 fow and dropped lines. 2 sd/fly on dipsy, 3 riggers (1 Sd fly, 1 paddle/meat, 1 sd meat). trolled out to 80 ish fow and dispy fires and thought was a miss(bit fly off). As I brought it in toi check deep rigger fires. I hand rod to friend who was on his first salmon trip, and he battles fish in. When it hit the boat I was shocked as when i put it in cooler I though "thats a coho" . To rough to double check so I reset lines. ended up getting 3 more hits and all kings, 1-20 lbs, 1-19lbs and one around 12 lbs. Got back to dock and I was anxious to check the first fish. Pulled it out and confirmed its a coho. Put on scales and came in at 20lbs 5 ozs. Boats PB by far!. Hope the wind settles down for morning! ====================
  5. My wife wants to spend a few days on the south side of the border and do some shopping. We are going to cross at watertown and come bach through buffalo. I was hoping to stop in at some shops and stock up for next season or for hunting season. Any recomendations on some small shops woth visiting? Thanks Jeff
  6. We headed pretty well straight out. Set up in 80 fow and trolled south west. I was surprised how quick it dropped of there. We zig zagged between 175 and 120 fow. Went likely 3 lies west, than turned arfound and headed East. Best action was directly in front of marina. As for the kids, they were already hooked. We dont get out much with out them.
  7. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):MAy 20 Time on Water:630 am -noon Weather/Temp:Clear Wind Speed/Direction:slight east Waves: flat Surface Temp: 51 Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 40ish Total Boated:close to 30 Species Breakdown:Bows, Hos and Kings Hot Lure: Green spoon, NK Mag, Wonderbread NK mag Trolling Speed: 2.5 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 150 Lure Depth: 92, 60 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS Where are all the fisherman!!! A buddy (Team Stolte) and I packed up the girls (4 and 5 Years Old)and hit the road at 4 am. Only 4 or 5 other boats there already. Got to the bluffs around 6 15 and were dropping lines at 630 or so. Just got 2 lines set when the the first fired . First Salmon of the year! Re rigged and dropped it back down to 92' in 150 fow. Set the third line, a braid dipsy when the other rigger fired. As I was fitting it the first rigger fired. First double of the year and its only 6:50. A nice king (20 lbs) and a coho around 5 lbs. Action coninued all morning. Ended up boating close to 30 fish and lost 8 or 10 more. Lost count. Mostly a rigger bite but did get a few on the divers. Green NK mag down 92 with a slider, and a wonderbread down 60 with a slider did the trick. The action was too hot to mess around with it. Ran a bloody death SD with Blue fly and a Green SD with a green fly on the divers. Also ran a couple different SD/fly combos on the wire but it was the only rod not to take a hit . most of the fish came right out front in 150 fow but did hook up in the 120-180 fow range. Cant believe we had the entire lake to our selves and such a spectacular day! The girls were super excited as they handled most of the bows and hos. Ended up with a mixed bag of Kings, cohos and bows. 4 good kings over 20 lbs! The boat surew needed a good pressure washing. Cant wait for the fish to move a bit further East so we can spend more time on the water and less in the truck. Jeff Ballz Out Fishing ====================
  8. I melted down some tire weights to make mine
  9. We battled the waves sunday morning for a few hours. Only managed a small shaker of the braid and dipsy at 150' set on a 3 setting on a black and purple NK mag. Only hit of the morning that we could see but were getting bounced around bad. We had my 4 year old daughter and my buddies 5 year old who ended up getting sick so we turned our course back to port.
  10. We have been catching a few eyes at the mouth of hay bay using stickbaits and riggers. We put in at the deseronto launch and then a 5 min ride south to the mouth of the bay. There are a few launches closer to Belleville and Trenton but I havent fished there so cant help you.
  11. Weve always been allowed crossbows here in ontario during the archery season. I started hunting with one as a teenager and continue now. I dont know where some of you guys get off saying theyll be shooting everything in site as no one i know has a bow or rifle thqat decides what to shoot. I pass up all sorts of deer so I can enjoy the time in the woods and hope to get a big lad. I also think that they are as limited as vertical bows when it comes to range and limitations. If anything is bad for our sport is a bunch of fighting amongst ourselves. If its legal try it. Maybe youll like it. How often does the government give anything to hunters these days! Not often north of the border
  12. I took my 12 year old nephew to darlington Sunday morning (July 4). We were on the water from 5:30 am to 9 am. We went 6 for 7. We caught a mid 30, 24, and high teen king, aswell as a small shaker. The other 2 fish were a 8 and 4 lb steelie. All mature kings and 4 lb steelie came on SD and fly combo behind dipseys out 200 over 100fow. others came on riggers down 30 and 70 on spoons. Saw a few decent hook ups aswell from the other boats.

  13. I just pulled the lowrance out of my boat. It came with my new lowe last year and I have had nothing but issues with it. I purchased a humminbird 585 combi unit and so far I am extremelly happy with it but it has seem limited use so far.
