  1. I run #5's on the 2 setting (wire) and if current is fine (meaning not running into a 3 mph current) that it is accurate.
  2. The black chinook #5's are the bomb...pull great, basically 2-1 ratio on #2 wire around 2.5, rarely have a false release once dialed in...couple dollars more than others but who said fishing is cheap. IMHO..If you can afford, I also agree with another response about the talora rods....the parabolic action make fighting these big guys easier. I run the 8' med/heavy as inside divers and won't go back to the cheaper rods...unless you are bringing young muscle after a couple wire fish.
  3. I will take a set... paypal sent. Tony
  4. Morning went west in 100-125 and found a few smaller fish. Finished 7/8 and dropped a big Atlantic at the net. Looked offshore for better signs but nothing so pulled plug at 11. 65/75 riggers and 180 diver... no pattern to colors. Went out at 4:00 and found fish at 230’ in front and east of oak. 65/75 riggers and 180-190 divers. Lance 2 face, UV alewife spoons... chin music / hypnotist spinnie did damage... 8/8 including 20,21,22 lb kings... plus 3 skippies. Lots of bait 60-120 down setting up last two nights out at 230’... worth a look if anyone out again at night. Green/ silver really worked well the last two nights in that water.
  5. Was finally able to sneak out with lines down at 2:30... found them at 3 and steady bite until pulling lines at 7:30... 12/19 with all kings except one. Broke off two majors on the atommik treble. Spoons and flasher/fly. Spoons down 45 and 55 while spinnie ran 139 on wire. Lance two face and chilly Willy spoons... stud/stud glow spinnie and dragon slayer/ stud uv spinnie. All bites 229-234 west of oak.... loads of bait and fish active tonight. Best about 21 lbs but others ran similar.
  6. Since we had a wind change overnight and my area west was drying up, I worked right out front today before the rain. With a good south breeze, the cold water was inside so I worked 60-80 for a few kings. Then as the warmer layer kept pushing offshore, I moved deeper to 120-150 and later 175-200. Picked away at kings in each zone finishing 7-12 plus a skippie. All kings last two days with today’s big fish at 22. 30-60 down... gold spook, carbon 14 taking spoon bites and dragon slayer /glow stud and gold 42nd /42nd spinnies accounting for 5 bites. Picked up at 11:00... grind but found enough to keep it interesting today.
  7. Fished to the west a few miles again. Today’s bite was 55-70 on riggers, 300 copper, and a few on wire between 150-190. Carbon 14’s early w/ silver 42nd mid morning, and Chilly Willy later in the morning. Carbon 14 meat rig/Carbon 14 spinnie, UV two face W/ stud. Mostly kings with a few steel... biggest king 23' over 95-115 water. Ran a 200 copper all day and nothing to show. Finished with about 20 bites again...
  8. Fished west around golden hill today. 130-150 best for us... spook (gold) best spoon.. carbon 14 and 42nd (gold) did well. Gold 42nd/ 42nd spinnie fired with multiple fish. 60-80 on riggers and 160-180 on wire divers. Lots of fish around with a mix of good steelhead. Steady bite until 10:30 or so for us.
  9. Lake Breeze Marina has a station to use with a small donation. But I had to run out and dump the carcass back in the lake since the Park grinder was closed in early June. Following responses to see if anyone has a better idea.
  10. Grind today but a few bigger fish to 19. Spoon bite 50-65 down over 140-200 with the biggest coming 50/425. Beefeater, sea sick, flounder pounder, green jeans... mix of mag and SS. Nothing on spinneis again. Some Kong’s on bottom in 115-120 but can’t get them to go. East 5-8 miles of Oak today. Steelies, kings and another coho... 4th day with a coho
  11. Another day with all small fish. Fished an hour before storm in 190 for a small king and laker on spoons. Then back out around noon for 4 hours after rain passed for another 8/9 fish. Pair of coho and about 7 Kings. All spoons, 160-230... 45-60 down.... UV alewife, lance 2 face, spotted blue green dolphin accounting for most. Biggest King only about 8 lbs. no shortage of small Kings around but no majors today. West of Oak 3 miles best. Deep wire flasher fly has been dead for 2 days other than one major.
  12. Out front east and west ... same today but no majors
  13. Fished the Oak today... solid numbers but most ran on smaller size. 18/24 with a dozen salmon up to maybe 20 lbs.... rest a mixed bag of Lakers, Steel, and a Coho. Spoon bite with deep wire one miss. Green Dolphin, Sea Sick, UV alewife, NBK, Carbon 14 all taking fish. 3 and 5 color, 200/300 copper and riggers all having action down to 65’.
  14. Have blue diamonds for downrigger and mono slide divers. Talora for wire divers. Used blue diamonds before switching to the talora based on a recommendation. Wish I had done it sooner... more money, but better product you won’t waste upgrade money on.
  15. No...it goes back to neutral and ball up process continues until the resin part on the cable connection breaks the surface. At that time the connection is broken and the motor should stop winding. If you are missing that piece, the motor will continue to wind up until you click the switch down to stop it.
  16. I still run an old pair of these mixed with new ones. The 4 prong switch is with the auto-stop. As stated, when the ball is in the water below the auto stop section, hitting up will keep the motor engaged until that resin section breaks the connectivity. If you see that behavior, it's working properly. You are getting oxidation on the motor so the housing is no longer sealed properly. When you put back together, make sure you seal the seam of the housing well to keep as much vapor out of that housing. Too much water will fry the motherboard...replaced one last year
  17. I love using #5 black chinook as a deep wire diver.
  18. Fishing shallow water in mid-May out of Olcott we had quite a few 5-6 pound salmon around banging spoons that I assume were last years class mixed in with the 15 -19 pound fish. I boated very few fish in that 9-13 pound range though and expected to see some of them missed in and didn't.
  19. Dane - Mono divers can and do work, but like everything have their place. Once the water warms, mono divers will typically target steelhead above 40'. If you get a NE wind and run offshore, mono divers can be high divers targeting early morning kings and steelhead. When there are no flea's, you can use braid as HB2 pointed out. If fleas are out, wire is needed. Personally, diver color is less important. Black is what I prefer to run and have most confidence in, but I often run chrome diver, chrome based flashers on bright days. Everybody has a fav diver color that works for them. I run 12'-13' 30lb Big Game behind the divers before attaching flasher, fly, meat. 20-25 lb flouro if spoon fishing. As already said, some days divers just light up.
  20. Are you out early or late in the morning? Colors that fire early don’t always fire when the sun comes up. I ran darks in the morning and chromes/whites when the sun came up last week with a lot of success. Actually black/green dot fires best in the early morning until it got light.

  21. I launched at East ramp Monday and the full week prior and there were no issues. Did the water level rise this week? Didn’t really seem to be a concern then. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Just got back from a few days at the Oak and happened to have the rare day with Atlantics. My sons holding a 8.5, 7.5, and 6.5 pound Atlantic in the same morning. Broke off what we thought was a larger one on a Lance Two Face after catching those three in the same vicinity. Completed the day with kings to 25 + lbs, 2 steelhead and 3 browns. Didn't have time to run offshore to find a coho though. Inconsistent temps, currents and action for us during the week. Fished 22' to 550' depending on the wind and temps. Black green dot spinnie with rapture black hypnotist and dragon slayer with stud were the better flashers on wires out 150' - 200'. Chrome Black Mamba with Minion Night Fury for meat on 300 copper; Mag Kimbo, Chilly WIlly, UV green alewive, Black Plague, and Lance Two Face the better spoons off riggers, 200 copper and lead lines. Broke off hogs on Night Fury w/ 300 copper and Dragon Slayer with Stud. Couldn't get a Waddler to fire no matter where I ran them this trip.
