  1. Last sunset on the lake for the Blue Dolphin this year Not many fish in harbor now
  2. I bought a used 91 seanymph 19 ft gls for $700 It was a trade in Put my 88 120 evinrude and 9.9 kicker Very fast .deep It's open now so I put a minkota for bass It's also a great duck boat handles big water well
  3. Thanks for your taking time to visit with the vets.There are some loyal staff there . I've tried to get the va to bring the vets up for fishing without any sucess One guy brought some vets to Hughes ,the VA fired him. It won't change till veteran groups make it happen. They have lost many vets there this year just plain neglect.
  4. I have volunteered there for several years. Care there has gone downhill so much I had to report the neglect The vA retaliated by revoking my volunteer status They run the place like a POW camp.the few vets who live there a sad way the end your life. It's all about jobs vets are a nuisance. Do every vet a favor shut it down.
  5. It was like summer today Lots of trout but you had to find colored water 50 deg on top Hope it sticks around
  6. Went out late marked tons fish water temp 48.lots of bait 35 ft Hey get out if you can summer is back Lol
  7. Back in 2000 we went to alaska in july.It was a great trip except for fishing.Made one boat trip up kenia and no catch.I saw few fish being caught.Saw some moose on shore. I catch all the salmon I want all summer long here and its only a ten minute drive. lake ontario is by far the best fishing for salmon . I didnt catch many browns during summer as I fished cold water.The browns are here best run Ive seen in years How is erie walleye now?
  8. Yesterday was great on browns Today was slow ene winds Typical 5 lbs some big ones Bayrats 20ftw
  9. Took a ride today Kings are still offshore Best views 40 to 60
  10. Last evening I fished awhile water 65 again Marked a few big fish Looks like a better chance for SMB They are their fall feed cycle Did see a number.o boat out deeper. Nice smoky sunset
  11. went out sunday afternoon.Cold water 52 in harbor mouth.45 degrees in 40 ft.Found some bait in 30 to 45 marked few fish.Went further out found 60s on top in 75 ft. On the way back in harbor water was back in the 60s. Marked few fish on the trip probably better close to shore except for the gin water doesn't help Today went down 56 degrees in harbor but no fish water very turbid maybe better tomorrow. last year I took a large king off my boat at the dock.hasn't seen even a early rainbow yet. There is always tomorrow
  12. Lots of cold water inside Had only a couple of hours marked few fish My bet is flat lines and boards Not many fish in creeks Later today another try. Had a great day matching with BLM folks
  13. I went out for bass late,slow action there so I went further to 60 ft.Lots of fish off the bottom like every year.In past years before the quaggas dragging the bottom was the ticket for late kings.Anyone know of a rig that would avoid this problem? Going out later when the wind is supposed to drop. One rig I often use is a spin doctor or pro chip off the rigger not more than 10 ft with a stacked J-plug with a rattler following ,took many fish,not many though in warm water we are seeing this year.
  14. For us it was a slow day Those who fished shallow and early out of temp did better To here was 55 deg 60 ft dn It was a pleasant boat ride day
  15. It started out slow but afternoon they turned on cold water 100 deep FOUR nice matures lost two All on ff 2face was hot dipseys
  16. Lots of frustration but if fishing was to easy it would be boring My old cannon has a switch like yours . I went out till the rain. Had a nice day fishing not catching Lol
  17. Two face.green white chrome,any green but I like pro chip flashers over spin d Mirage flys have been good also Keep them sharp kings dull hooks
  18. I have found the right temp will get fish.if they don't hit lengthen the lead. Green and white has been good since the first stocking My biggest 38 came on a mag g/w stinger in 45 deg water the night before the fall derby in 92

    Midsummer on Lake Ontario
  20. for us temp has been the key.I finally got my depth raider to work ok and it made the difference.45 degree water was hot for kings. I took the swivel off the clincher and connected directly to the device made the difference.
  21. we stayed in shallow good temp .tons of bait at 60 to 85.It took awhile to dial in .Finally it was spoons 50 ft plus leads at 67 ft started the rods popping.One hit on FF ,We took a nice mature in for weight 25 3 couldn't find my scale on boat.Stay hydrated if you go out today.
