  1. Great boat! I run a 20’ welded Alumaweld Intruder! I prefer the Bar first two weeks of May. Fishing can be just plain stupid.... then again you get a hard northeast wind it will be a ghost town. Lol. I like Oswego the last two weeks of July. This year I am going to fish out of Port Bay July 9-19 Fleas get bad mid July at times... most likely a whole new ballgame for you. Booking a reputable charter is well worth the $$. If you are only coming for 3 days leave the boat home and go with charter. Might not even get out of port with a 20’.
  2. Lost a nice one with flasher fly dipsy and 20’ of wire last summer smacking the line on the water to clear the rope I broke off.
  3. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was all white perch
  4. That’s what I do and rarely have a failure. I use the Uni knot on the mono or braid.
  5. You gotta be willing to donate tackle yo you find what works. Slide divers are useless when fleas show up
  6. I think the rule of thought is 3/1. Regular. And 2.5. Or 2/1 with added weight and ring. Your speed and lake o currents gonna put that to the test. Best thing is to keep adjusting your setup to it fires or hits bottom.
  7. What is a pike ball? I assume a large bobber. Excuse my ignorance. Love coppers
  8. I guess I am an a hole. . You asked. I think you will have to get to 60’ of water to catch something other than little white perch & gobies by then. I could be wrong.
  9. If the weather cooperates grow a set and get some line screamers
  10. How will the water levels be mid April - May 1 and launch access? Want to try this area for a few weekends.
  11. Thanks for the insight. All of the kings we got on long coppers and wire dipsys we picked off bottom and they were hogs. Our biggest for the week was 25 pounds and 36.5 inches. Broke a number off that size as well. Our biggest laker was 36" and 19 pounds. Not bad for never catching a king before. We fish Champlain and George.
  12. Maybe I should be asking what part of the upper water column I should be working. I saw lots of surfacing fish offshore and felt like I was missing out. Tried flatling a few sticks off the boards over the deep water that didn't produce. Inshore we did well with sticks off boards and spoons off riggers for the browns & coho.
  13. 2nd year to the bar in May and was wondering how many colors of lead guys are running offshore for Kings/coho? Did well with 200,250 & 300 coppers and had great rigger bites from 30-60 down along with wire dipsys. Looking to add some more junk to the spread as it is so fun clearing lines in a fire drill
  14. Thanks for pointing that lure connection out to me a few years ago jim! Matty and I smoked the Kings at the bar. Large & mag bees with ring cut off and ran with the snap. Headed home tomorrow. Took a few browns and cohos on a small size bee in pink!. Old school greens and chartreuse ruled
  15. You post some great info!  Headed out in which weeks for our 2st time are rge bar.

  16. Honeybee spoons are still available and are a year round staple for the Lake Champlain guys.
  17. Sad, Liked that store & location Always went there when in the area.
  18. Spoon Colors Niagra Bar Spring Headed out to the bar for the first time in a month and would like to know what color program we should be using.
  19. Great Rig. Would be running to Rochester to buy it if I didn't already own a 20' Alumaweld. Posted the add link on the Champlain fishing forum for you.
  20. Tried out 300 of 60 pound and am definitely getting good bottom contact. Was running a bead chain at 5' in front of spin n glo and it was picking up debris. Started running the spin n glo set up direct on my 40' leader and it is working better. I put the 60 pound on a spare reel for safe keeping and opted to put 400' of 45 lb on for my next. Did have an interting thing happy. My other copper rod snagged my mining Rod and I ended up holding the spin n glo in my hand and having 300' out in a big u. I said what the heck and tossed the spin n gl I and when it got 50' fronm the boat down she went and 10 seconds latter źzzzzzz... laker on. Figured I would end up with a mess of line.
  21. How long do you need to soak in scent prior to using? Opened one up for the first time and it smells like the rubber boot isle at any discount department store.
  22. Thanks Bloodrun, Just happen to be in Pulaski NY and All Seasons Sports had a bulk spool of 60 lb bloodrun. Spooled 450' of 30 lb power pro and 300' of 60 lb bloodrun on a Seagate 60. It is a tight fit. Most likely take off some baking as this is strictly a LT setup and don't need a ton of backing. Will report how I do
