  1. We did well on Saturday and Sunday right out of the chute! Bayrat fire tiger, J-11 perch were best for sticks, some natural dark green and dark purple spoons did ok too. Ended boating 3 kings lost a couple more and about 20 browns also caught 2 real nice small mouth bass west of the chute. Weather turned on us Sunday it Monday so we couldn’t keep fishing if it wasn’t a 5 hour drive I’d be coming back on the weekends! Good luck the rest of the year to everyone!
  2. I’ve seen people do well fishing the mouth of 9mile creek.. Last year on windy day we tried to get down there, but with private property signs and no parking signs we were scared off. I’d say people just park and walk down the stream ignoring signs ?
  3. Hello everyone, it’s getting to that time again! My family and I are planning our annual trip up to Fairhaven, we’ve been coming up about 10 years now. I know every year is different and I don’t expect this one to be any “different” but we’ve held off on booking a place to stay due to the lasting winter weather and the dates that we can come up. Right now we are shooting for 4-13/4-16. We are coming up from Mass and everything here is pretty much iced over still. We stay at anchor resort and dock the boat as well for the convenience. Does anyone have any thoughts on the bay being thawed by then? Also will the damages to the chute have any affect on us accessing lady O. I know there are a lot of factors that effect these things just looking for some advice from people who live in the area. I’m assuming that the water off the state launch will give us access to the lake by then? Thanks ahead for any information! Keeping our fingers crossed that the weather starts changing for the warmer ! Cheers, matt
  4. Was wondering if anyone has ever had success jigging or dragging soft plastic baits/spoons/live bait for lakers in the spring. When the weather gets rough trolling in a smaller boat gets difficult always thought it would be fun to try this instead of getting off the lake! Any info is much appreciated!
  5. Hi everyone been coming up for about 10 years now we will be up on the 19th of this month hopefully the weather warms up! Question for anyone who has information, we have been using inline planers for years now and have an array of diff kinds from yellow bird, sidewinder, off-shore, but have recently purchased a mast. We are waiting on our Otter Boats we ordered for weeks but are still on back order. Starting to get worried they won't come in on time does anyone have any suggestions on other boards? Or know of availability of boards seems like everywhere I look everything is sold out? Thanks
  6. Been fishing Lake Ontario about 8 years now and we have used a few different inline planer boards, one being the sidewinder. We used the side winder boards a few years in a row with good success when the fishing was on. They are light weight and allow you to fight the fish without fighting the board. This board is best for calm days ! The cons would be it doesn't get out to far away from the boat, it can release easily, and it's no good on windy or rough days. Just last year we switched to the new yellow bird 100 boards with tattle flag becuase we got tired of letting the sidewinder board out to have it release as soon as you put the rod in the holder, they also flip and spin a lot when it's windy. Yellow bird Boards ran well in all weather and tattle flag worked great. For the price both sidewinder and yellow bird are good to have on board if your looking for lighter inline planers these have been the best for us.
  7. Thanks Mike, that's what I was hoping to hear. Its nice to go out and catch a mixed bag of fish. Cheers, Matt
  8. Anyone targeting any kings yet? Coming up the 7th staying until the 11th would love to get into some king action!
  9. Hello Fairhaven fishermen, we have been fishing Fairhaven for about 5 years now and usually come about the 2nd week of April. Due to the WINTER weather we and scheduling we are forced to push back the trip to the first week of May. We like to target browns n kings close to shore. It seems like May is late for tight shore trolling anyone have any insight? I know everything is unpredictable but has anyone had success around these dates in the past? We have a 18ft Crestliner and can handle a little snotty water but don't have to much experience trolling deep water. Any info will be greatly appreciated ! Thanks!
  10. Hi everyone im heading up to fair haven state beach for 4/7/11 targeting browns and w.e. else hits really. Have not had much luck the last few years but we were very unexperienced and under equipped. I was wondering what other species we could target close to shore we bagged a small coho i believe last year but that was the only other species besides browns. We would love to get into lakers and steelies if the brown bite is slow any advice?
  11. how deep do u run for the steelies? we love catchin a mixed bag. browns and cohos are close to shore but wed love to nail some rainbows and steelies..
  12. Been heading up here for a few years in a row trying to gain some knowledge but have not had much luck. Every year we do a little better but this year we have done a lot of research and bought a ton of new gear so our hopes are high. We have tried both East and West of Little Sodus bay and have had most of our luck west. We caught most of our fish on a perch colored rapala of planers I have heard thats rare (perch colored rapala) ? Been really gearing up for this trip and we appreciate any advice anyone has to offer. Thank you..
