  1. Thanks! How do you know how big the waves are and what the color of the water is at 3am when it is pitch dark outside? Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Wow! An early start for you two Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yes I agree but if it is under 40" it is under 30lbs 99% of the time. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. 39" puts it around 27 or 28 lbs would be my guess. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Tighten your releases way tight and see if that helps. Do the same on your divers.
  6. I am not getting anything done at work today because I keep watching all of these videos!
  7. Not sure what part of the lake you are fishing but for the past couple of weeks in Sodus the fish have been out much deeper in the lake and have been down much deeper. We have been catching them in 200 - 500 feet of water about 110 feet deep. If you dont have wire or braided line going to your divers you are not getting deep enough to catch the fish and are pretty much wasting gas. Maybe the fish are staging shallower in front of the Salmon river if that is where you are fishing??? Don't know about that.
  8. I pretty much agree with this although I would look for a bigger Coho, I like the Cohos when they enter the river and get that nice Pink side. They look very nice once they start to turn.
  9. Hmmmmm. It is funny that you say that because I run a couple of rods with a twilli tip and a couple with the regular tip. I do have that line curling up like a pig tail and never noticed if it is better or worse with the twilli tip vs standard tip. I will have to check that out and see. I have a few twilli tips in my tackle box and can change them easy enough. You are correct about the twilli tip being a cheap investment at about $8 or $10 for sure. I will say this though... Even with the standard tip I have never broken a wire line yet. I have had some become frayed and have cut it out and retied it. That fraying may be caused by the standard tip now that I think about it. In either case, good advise. I will change my tips out this week.
  10. That is how you check your diver depth. Nicely done! Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Nick, I have room for a couple people if you n Theresa, or Andy and Sam want to fish with me. Going out around 730. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Even 1 footers can cause my beer to spill Wow, Last night it was 50 degrees down about 85 out in 250 FOW. Is that a true 100 down or your downrigger 100 down? Which is actually about 80 down
  14. Yes, please go to Mexico. There are no fish in Sodus. Everyone should head east!!!
  15. Nick, We did good last night around 250 FOW. Only out about 75-90 minutes but went 2 for 2 on Showtime Blue/Hammer Fly out 300 on Mag diver #2 setting. Probably see you tonight but if not, see you tomorrow.
  16. You don't need either. A standard tip will take years before wearing through.
  17. A 200Mhz transducer is almost worthless for salmon and lake trout trolling.You need a 50 or 80 if you want to see the fish.
  18. Hey!!!! I thought I owned the lake !!! Oh, I only own the 10 square mile section out in front of Sodus Point lighthouse
  19. I use Walker Deeper divers and I have one Luhr Jensen Dipsy Diver. I find that the Walker size #1 runs Deeper than the Dipsy Diver size #1. I can get down to about 90-100 feet with a Walker #1 if I let it out about 350 feet at about 2.5 mph. The Luhr Jensen does not seem to get as deep. My testing is informal but quite often I troll in to shore just to see at what depth my diver starts hitting ground. That is about the most reliable method in my opinion
  20. Congrats on a great fish! I don't know about Oswego and Mexico but Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Sodus were the three best days all year. It can be tough without a probe but my guess is that you were fishing too shallow. Most of the fish in Sodus area seemed to be parked about 110 feet down on average. Many of the guys reported that most of them came in deep water down 110 -130 feet. My biggest on Saturday came off a 5 color lead core tied to a 130 down downrigger with a 12 lb weight.
