  1. Another cheap way is a rubber band attached to the braid with a shower clip.
  2. Decided to move the boat back where lake Ontario fishing started for me. 32 years ago( I was 10) I caught my first and last Tyee slamon at 32lbs and I was hooked. Friday 5/7: had little to no intel so we left port and followed the pack just west of port found a good screen and started fishing. It started out like gang busters a mix of ho's and kings(8-14lb range). Not much of a pattern everything I put in took fish from a 3 color to 80' rigger. We fished 80'-140'. Hot baits warrior salmon candy and DW SG Two Face. Late morning it slowed down, we went to look for browns from port to the plant only to come up empty handed. Move back out to 80' and trolled back to port and picked up a few more salmon. Ended up with 19 salmon and 2 lakers. Highlight of the day was two Ho's on one rod, hit the slider and the main spoon and netted both and the same time. Saturday 5/8: We left with a goal of finding big salmon so we headed west and ended up finding a pile of bait with fish on it 5 miles from the bar. I changed my spread to target bigger kings, ran he baits deeper, went to bigger paddles and mostly mag spoons. The fishing was hot again and we just kept circling the the same area all morning the fish hawk was key to our success keeping the speed from 2.4-2.6 required constant adjustments. Lots of cloud cover in the morning ran a mix of green glow spoons and paddles. Around 10:00 the sun came out and I changed out to more of a silver and green/chartreuse spread. It was mainly a spoon bite for us the meat and fly's took only a few fish. Ended up the day with 21 Salmon a mix of ho's and kings with 3 x over 20lbs. Highlight of the day was around 10:15 a double on big kings 23.10 and 22.13. Both on the board and took big fish of the day. Hot baits for us Michigan Stinger Mongoose, UV green Slush and DW SG two faced. 7 Color, 200 Copper, 300 cooper, Dipsey's from 100-180, Riggers from 60-80. No fish today got to keep the wife happy. Back out next Friday, good luck out there. Eric
  3. As of last weekend mainly Lakers in 120-140. But only a few off the bay. Over in front of Braddok it’s loaded with Lakers in 140’. Water has been clear so not much luck brown fishing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  5. Headed to Olcott the next 2 weekends, does anyone know of a diner that is open early for breakfast. Or a place to get breakfast sandwiches? Thanks, Eric
  6. Left I-Bay at 0630 searched down to ship builders and did not like what I saw. So headed off Braddock's bay, started in 80 and worked out to 140'. Ran a mix spread for Salmon from the surface down to 80' and dedicated to 2 rods to lakers right on the bottom. It started out slow and then I could not keep the laker rods in the water. Worked 140' East and West it did not seem to matter although they wanted it faster than usually for lakers 2.2-2.4. Only 2 baits took all the fish, Large Chartreuse hammerhead cowbell with a large 2 spinner gambler rig, and Green ladderback Spin doctor with stud fly (Lengthened the lead to fly from spin doctor to 28"s). We ended up 15 for 20 all lakers majority over 10Lbs and one around 20lbs. One more thing the lakers were coughing up smelt. Pulled the boat and moving it Olcott Thursday for the LOC. Good luck out there! Eric

  9. Looking to take my boat to Olcott or Wilson. Any one have any recommendations for a Transient Dock at Olcott 6,7 May. Is this even a possibility. Thanks, Eric Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. After work decided to take the kids fishing. We took a vote and they wanted to go perch fishing. So much for all the fancy equipment all you really need is a 10 year with an ultra light and a perch minno. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. It was a great feeling to get out and fish, its been 20 months because I was deployed to middle east last year. Engine ran great and everything seems to working fine just a few minor adjustments on the gear. Wanted to stay close to the port for the first trip. Searched around for colored water but nothing close to I-Bay so we went to plan B. Moved out to 120' dropped the rigger down and managed some Lakers. Ran 2 riggers one with a blue and silver gambler rig and the other rigger with a black and orange NK. Hoping some rain and NW winds changes conditions for the better, back out Wednesday.

  14. Tubes the same size is the traxtech rod holders there durable enough to run dipsey rods. Minus the vertical hole at the top that’s is small. You won’t be disappointed with these. Comes with 2 adjustments per holder. I wrenched on them and once you lock them in they won’t move. You do have to buy an extra adapter if you are going to use these on normal track systems.

  20. Had this happen to my Humingbird a few years ago and it was bad transducer. You could always have someelse with a hummingbird test it on there boat to confirm.
  21. 2018 was our last 31lb off bradocks begining of August on a Carbon 14. The last and only 41lb for us was in the Fall LOC in 2000, there were 3 caught that year. It would be nice to see some 40+ fish again
  22. Also take a look at the countours just east of the bay, starting at 120' infront of the white house. There are a couple of drop off's there that usally hold a good current and fish when the conditions are right.
