  1. Check out Saiffe Charters website out of Henderson Harbor. He had some information on salmon action in the trench this week.

  3. Still haven't been to the lake. Peter and I may try this week.
  4. I fished the river yesterday morning ( as I do most mornings)at Alexandria Bay. Early morning the bass were chasing bait up to the surface in 12-28 fow. I trolled Shad raps and caught a couple bass and a decent walleye. After the sun got up the fish went deeper and I was catching smallmouth in 50-70 fow. Also caught a nice walleye on a jigging spoon. The smallmouth often are deep this time of year and I've caught them as deep as 120'. Usually 60-90' where there is current and a change in depth. You can drift with 1 ounce weights and use crabs, minnows or worms but gobbies will gobble the worms. You can also use plastics on the same rigs. Even at those depths they will grab 4" Senkos but you need to get them near the bottom. Jigging spoons are effective . I use 1 1/2 oz. and snap jig as I control drift with my trolling motor this is a very effective way to cover an area and is effective for smallmouth and walleyes. Largemouth fishing in Lake of the Isles and Eel Bay is generally good. Fish in 12-14 fow. There are also many small pike there. Generally you can catch largemouths in this shallower water with plastics, spinner baits or poppers (early in the morning) Look for holes or pockets in the weeds or fish just off the weed edge. Also try near shore in the slop with Frog baits. For smaller pike try the same spots. Erratic retrieving a Long A Bomber, and Mepps spinners work here. To get larger pike I'd try the deep edge off the weed beds near drop offs. Drifting live bait works well as does casting jig. The fishing is starting to crank up and you shouldn't have much trouble catching lots of fish this time of year.
  5. Very cool alternative to fishing the big pond. I've done a little Kayak fishing and it's a blast being towed by a big fish. Wait till you hit your first mature king!
  6. Most everyone on this sight has been very helpful with general information. I haven't been out on the lake since fishing spring browns. From what I've heard the salmon bite has been sporadic with few large fish and the early morning brown bite has been a little better. Things will definitely pick up as we move through August. Lots of fish on the western end of the lake this entire month.
  7. Thanks for the report. My brother lives on Toby Island off Monument Beach and I get down there a couple times a year. We caught some nice keeper strippers this spring and I hope to return again this summer and fall. We always have a great time and he has a beautiful home with a great view of Mashnee flats and just a short run to the canal. Your report makes me want to make the trip but I have a rough time leaving the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario near where I live.
  8. Thanks for the report. I need to get out n on the big pond and give them a try! I've been fishing walleyes in the river and bass in Butterfield Lake.
  9.

I live near Alexandria Bay and have a 18' Lund Alaskan. Is Henderson worth a try or do I need to travel further west? (I don't really want to run to the shipping lanes) I know they are slamming them on west end. I had a good spring fishing browns out of Mexico and would like to get in on the salmon bite. I 'm kinda out of the loop as I've been busy working on boats, completing my honey-do list and fishing St. Lawrence walleyes. Any information would be appreciated. ====================
  10. Bass fishing has been good on the river, Caught a limit opening day shallow (3-8' of water) on 4" Senkos and again today. Let a bunch more go but here is a picture of the limit I kept this morning. Last week, before the season opened, I caught a bunch in 30-60' of water while fishing walleyes. Must be some have spawned and some are still at it.
  11. I fished the river, near Alex Bay, a couple mornings this week. First day I caught a 23" walleye trolling a Reef runner in about 30' of water also caught several nice smallmouths which were released. Latter I switched to jigging spoon and caught a throw back walleye and a few bass in 40-70' Similar results this morning. Another 23" walleye on a trolled DD Taildancer and also a few nice bass. Latter went to vertical jigging and caught more bass and some decent perch in 55-70'.
  12. Remember that bass and Muskie season isn't open till June 19th. If your after pike ,browns and walleyes you might try Black River Bay, Chaumont, Three mile Bay, Guffins and Mud Bay areas. Running boards and riggers in 20-40' of water with deep cranks, spinner and worm, or even spoons. May need snap weights to get deep enough. Walleyes may also be taken in the river with jigs tipped with worms or leeches, jigging spoons and deep diving cranks trolled slowly into the current. Fish the drop off of shoals in 20-50' of water and best bit is early morning or evening. Pike along deep weed beds with jigs, spoons, spinners or minnows. Make sure you check the weather as the lake can kick up in a hurry.

Caught 1 pike and a whitefish but no walleyes. Fished boards and riggers running sticks, cranks, spoons, and worms and spinners. We marked a bunch of fish and bait in 25-40' of water but couldn't get them to hit We caught the whitefish on a small crank bait and it had small shad in it's stomach. I've fished the Lake a while and never caught one before . Are they common? ====================
  14. May (about now) is the time for big fish in the Canal. We were fishing from a 17' Boston Whaler on the west end of the canal near the Marine Academy in Bourne. I understand the Hudson has fished great this spring.
  15. ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS Just returned from a trip to Cape Cod where we caught over 40 stripers to 37 1?2" in three days. Caught them on spinning rods with 10-12 lb. test casting stick baits. Today I'm headed to Black River Bay in search of walleyes. ====================

    The crappies have definitely moved into shallow water haunts to prepare for spawn. They have darkened up and are in normal shallow shoreline structure. Fished an Indian River Lake yesterday and caught 23 crappies and 10 bluegills that we kept. All the bass went back..Many fish in shallows, you can even sight fish them Worked the shoreline with trolling motor and anchored up when we caught a crappie. Often caught a few fish after we caught one. One small shallow bay, near deep water, was loaded with fish ( bass, crappie, bluegill) and we hung there for over an hour catching a bunch of fish.
  17. Nice reportWe fished west of Sandy earlier this week. We were working basically the same program as you but only trolling at 1.8-2.0 (GPS). We lost several fish on a perch Stinger in the small size . They seemed to stay buttoned better with larger size spoons. We also saw very few boats out. We ended up 7 for 11 with one laker.
  18. We were 7 for 12 earlier in the week mostly browns and 1 laker. Fished east of Mexico in 5-12 feet of water. 1.8-2.0 mph on spoons. Fish were all in colored water so it pays to look for it.

  20. Federal 3 1/2 ", #5s. At close range it saves on the cleaning process. Beard was only around 9" but spurs were long.
  21. Ryan, I know it's a bit of a run but most of the Indian River Lakes are good. I've been having decent luck when weather warms and we have a S-SW wind. Let me know if you whar more information or give me a call. With this cold weather I'd hold off on the crappies until it warms up again as it will surely put them off. Cold front s always seem to really shut th3m down for a few days.
  22. Retirement is great especially if you've got great friends and family to share it with!
  23. Here is a nice bird with 1 1/8 inch spurs
  24. I'll get out next week as the weather looks nasty this weekend.
