  2. Hello packynyam. Looking forward to hearing from you on the water!
  3. Out of Hughes this weekend I was finally able to get on the water and shake down the new boat. We left Hughes late Saturday Morning and the lake was glass. Perfect time to test out the boat....except the sonar shot the goose. At lease I was able to spend some time on the water. Thanks to the Gentlemen at Bay Bridge, they hooked me up with a new sonar unit. Next Saturday, we will be ready!
  4. Hello once again Hello Everybody! It has been two long years since we have been on the water on Lake Ontario. Our old boat, the Chili Verde found a new home. We are now operating a 19' Sea Nymph under the name of Barnacle Bill. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the water.
  5. We will be going out of Hughes this Saturday. Hope to see you on the water. We are the Chili Verde and on 16 most of the time. Good Luck and Great Fishing!

  14. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Bill Hoehne/Chili Verde ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 6/3 Time on Water: Unknown Weather/Temp: Rainy 54-60 Deg Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: 1 ft or less Surface Temp: Unknown Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 1 Total Boated: 1 Species Breakdown: laker Hot Lure: Chuckster Trolling Speed: 2.5-2.8 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 80-120 Lure Depth: 30-60 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Got on the water at about 10:00 after the rain broke. Set up at 80 fow 50 and 60 ft down with the riggers, 30-40 on the dipseys. Worked north towards the 120 fow line. Crossed into 115 and the 60 ft rigger popped. The laker was 27 inches, about 8 lbs. We circled between 120 and 80 from Pultnyville to Hughes. Had three additional releases (one on the 50 ft rigger and two the 30 ft dipsey), but nobody home. Interesting that there was a lot of surface moss between 120 and 100. Between 100 andd 80 the water was pretty clear of debris. Been gone for a week, looks like the lake was churned up a bit. Had to check the lures regularly for junk. over all, a good morning of fishing! Take care, and good luck!
  15. Is this still available? I am very interested. I work in Roch, will pick up. Please call at 585-330-6288. Thankx...
  16. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: (Barnacle) Bill Hoehne/ Chili Verde ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 7/16-7/17 Time on Water: 6-10am, 5:45-10am Weather/Temp: Clear, 60-80 Waves: calm on Sat, 1-2 on Sunday =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 14 Total Boated: 12 Species Breakdown: Browns and Kings Hot Lure: Orange Crush, Dr. Death, Fat Nancy Trolling Speed: 2.0-2.7 Boat Depth: 160-180 Lure Depth: 60-80 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== We had a friend join us on Saturday for his second Lake Ontario experience. We headed North out of Hughes and shut down at 150 FOW. We set up two riggers with stackers and two dipseys. Once we were on the 160 line, we headed East. About an hour in, the shallow rigger hit with a skipper king. Just after we got the reset, the deep rigger went off with a fish running. Rob grabbed the rod and the fight was on! He did a great job landing his first King, 20# 5 oz. We turned back around and headed West on the same line, no takers, so we turned North towards the 180 ft line. In a 170FOW, we hit a 5# brown on the shallow rigger. About an hour later, we hit another skipper king at about 175 FOW. Things shut down for us around 9, so we headed back to the dock at 10. The spiney fleas were a mess as usual. We spend more time cleaning the lines than fishing! While Rob was getting his fish weighed at Warrens, I spoke to Dawn about getting 30# Ande put on my down rigger rods. Warrens is simply the BEST!!! They got me re-lined in plenty of time to hit the water on Sunday. A big Thank you to Dawn, Kayci, and the Warrens crew for taking care of us. Sunday it was just the two of us. It was a bit rough at first, but seemed to drop to 1-2 footers around 9. We set up on the same lines as we did yesterday. All said and done, we boated a combination of browns and kings but none were keepers. The best part of the whole morning...NO MORE FLEAS!!! It was a great weekend on the lake once again. Congratulations to all of you who participated in the ProAm and LOU Tourneys.
  17. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: (Barnacle) Bill Hoehne/Chili Verde ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 7/2 Time on Water: 5:30-11:00 Weather/Temp: Sunny 65-83 Wind Speed/Direction: light breeze from the south Waves: <1 Ft Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 2 Total Boated: 2 Species Breakdown: Rainbow/Skipper King Hot Lure: Chuckster/ Fat Nancy Trolling Speed: 1.8-2.4 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 50-240 Lure Depth: 40-70 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== It was a great morning to go fishing, too bad the fish didn't get the memo. We set up at 50 and trolled east, no signs of fish. We turned North at Bootleggers Point. Took the Rainbow as we crossed into 50 FOW, 40 ft down on the rigger. He weighed in at 7#, 23 inches. Okay, a keeper. We continued North and crossed the 220 line. The dipsey lite up, 120 ft out. We boated a small king and released him. Turned South at 240 FOW and trolled back. No marks and no other hits. It was a nice relaxing day on the water, although a bit more action would have been icing on the cake. Like my dad always said, "that's why they call it fishing and not catching". Good Luck to all, and have a safe and enjoyable 4th! See ya on the water!
  18. Great job Woody and Alex. Its great to spend time with the kids. Wish ours were closer. Good Luck!

First hit was within 30 minutes out on the dipsey. Did not see this fish, but I guess he really wanted the red/black spoon. He took it! Turned north towards 80 feet (well, tried to anyway). Next two hits were also off the dispsey's set at 30 and 40 feet in 50 FOW. Boated and released the bow and the steely. Worked our way out to 80' and and ran the 80' line back west. No takers so headed south. Hit the last two browns on the 60' and 50' lines. In all not a bad day. A bit rough at times, but bearable. Take care, all, and Good Fishing!
  20. Sounds great, Woody. Glad to hear all is running well! (Barnacle) Bill H.
