  1. Wow! Awesome weekend. Any idea of size on the Pike? Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  2. Awesome! We were out Saturday and did a few bows, a few Lakers and a smallie. Had 2 break offs on the dipsey at 40 fow after a hard hit. Green and orange spoons seemed good for us. Wouldn’t be catching these bows without your reports! Thank you again! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  3. That’s interesting. I appreciate the info Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  4. Interesting, the last one we caught was on the north east corner down 50 over 65. My first time ever on the lake in mid may i caught 10 pike on the north west corner in 12 fow on crank baits. All others since then have been on accident
  5. I love that lake! I caught my eye (27”) in 65 fow right on the bottom. I never would have expected that. I have to say though that the Rainbow that hit the copper line was ferocious! Only 18” but fought like an Ontario Steelhead. Pretty crazy. Just curious, does anyone target Pike out of there? I have caught a dozen or so over the years and only 1 trolling last year. Love to figure those out someday if there is any numbers in the lake? Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  6. Thanks to all your help on here I was finally able to get some Rainbows in the boat yesterday as well as a beautiful Eye. Wire dipsey rod and a copper rod were active for me yesterday. That cloud cover in the AM has those fish hungry! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

  8. Do you mind sharing what you use for copper setup? Reel specifically and type of copper you prefer? Congratulations and thanks for your posts Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  9. We launched a 23’ at Deans today with no problem at all. Lakers, Lakers, Lakers and a few Lakers all in Brown territory. Man are they fun in shallow water when they obliterate a diving stickbait.
  10. Bought these for my old boat but never installed them. I purchased a new boat last year so no need for these to sit around in my basement any longer. $100 located in the Skaneateles area.
  11. We have found the best luck on the north east side this year. Start there and watch your screens for active fish. We don’t catch a ton of silvers on the lake but the ones we have caught were on that east side in 80-100 fow in the top 40’. I am sure a lot has changed in the last few weeks with temps but that’s where I would start. Good luck. Let us know how you do! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Nice eye! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Dude they should rename the lake after you. Holy crap. Great job! I finally landed a rainbow last weekend and it was 12” long and apparently I had been dragging it for hours because it was stiff as a board when I reeled it in. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Incredible! We fished Friday and gave it all we had. Boards and riggers for silver and dipseys for Lakers to keep the kids interested. We landed 6 Lakers on dipseys and 1 bow on a rigger that was 12” max. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. There is nothing better than taking kids fishing and watching their eyes light up. Kudos to you Captain! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Great work! Do you run planer boards? Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Fleas weren’t to bad last weekend but some days they are worse than others. Laker action is nonstop on flasher fly combos in 100 fow on dipseys. Tons of marks at 30-50 which are likely rainbows and browns but I cannot seem to get them to strike. Side scan shows they are 50’ out to the side so if your using planer boards you may have better luck then me. Good luck!! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Owasco lake sure doesn’t want to give up any of those silver bullets to me that’s for sure. I have spent a lot of time trolling Owasco over the last 5 years or so and do very well with the Lake Trout (I imagine everyone does well with these guys) but have only hooked 2 Rainbows. One dumped at the back of the boat and they other was about 15” long. My question for the experts though: the last few trips out we have seen incredible activity between 30-50 foot over 90-120 fow. I assume those are Rainbows traveling the thermocline. For some reason, we cannot get them to bite anything. Tried every spoon imaginable. Countless stick baits, varying speeds, directions, winds....you name it. I am just not sure what I am doing wrong. Last Sunday we ran dipseys deep for the Lakers and ran 2 riggers both with fixed cheaters. It must have looked like a Bass Pro Shops aisle down there and we couldn’t get anything to pop a rigger. Lakers were non stop but I just can’t figure out the Rainbows there. Anyone have any advise on a different approach that might work? The mighty google doesn’t have much information for trolling lake Rainbows. More about stocked ponds and streams than anything. Thanks All! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. If salmon and trout are your target then I highly recommend a couple wire line Dipsy divers. I know there are plenty of walleye fisherman who use them too but in my opinion they are a must have. Everyone has preferences on brands but I like my Okuma Cold Water reels. Seems to hold up well for us. Congratulations on the new boat and good luck on the water!! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Looks small in the hands of a kid thats 6’ 5”. Haha
