  1. Fished off the Genny saturday. I knew things were looking ominous when the weather forecast was calling for east winds all week. Bad omen number two was my conversation with the proprietors at the Boat doctors in olcott. I stopped there on my way from Buffalo to get some cut bait prior to launching and was informed that the lake had flipped. Get out of Rochester into about 250 feet of water and see only two other boats even though the lake was like glass and it was a perfect day. Fished everywhere. Went out as far as twelve miles into about 550 feet. Marked very few fish. Had one steelie on the line and lost him after the second jump, That was about 8 miles out in 500 feet. Just one of those days.

    BEST COMBOS

    Newbie here. Gonna be fishing off rochester this weekend for kings/steelies. Gonna stop at the tackle shop before i go. Looking for suggestions on combinations. Spin doctor or Paddle and spoon. Spin doctor or Paddle and flies. Spin doctor or Paddle and cut bait. Whatever works best. Whats your favorite combo. On the cut bait does anyone have a particular baitholder color they prefer. We are targeting both kings and steelhead so Im looking for combos on both. If there are any good articles on this they would be appreciated also. Thanks for any help.

    ROCHESTER

    Thanks. I will absolutely post a follow up report and let everyone know when and where i caught that 40 lb slob. LOL.
  5. Im launching from the Genny on saturday and would appreciate any advice with respect to where in that area is a good spot. Straight out? To the left? To the right? Off a particular landmark? Any help is appreciated.
  6. Im new to the LO fishing scene. Grew up fishing Lake Erie. I live in Buffalo and am traveling to rochester saturday to go out off Rochester on my nephews boat(he lives there). As of right now the weather forecast is calling for a Northeast/east wind. In forty years of fishing Erie one thing has been constant. If you dont want to catch fish, go out on an east wind and you'll be guaranteed to get skunked. Does this rule hold for ontario kings and steelhead. I went out with him(my nephew) last year off the Genny and the wind quickly switched from southwest to east and we didnt get a single hit after the wind changed. Also, how accurate are the weather forecasts with respect to the wind around rochester. If I look at the forecast on friday night and it says winds from the east on saturday should I just cancel the trip or is it a crap shoot as far as what direction the wind may come from the next day regardless of the weather forecast. Any advice is appreciated.
  7. How is the king and steelie fishing between The genesee river and sodus this time of year? Is it comparable to Wilson, Olcott, and the Oak? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  8. Noticed two different sizes of spin doctors at gander mountain yesterday. Whats best the large or the small or doesnt it matter. Also need suggestions on some good combos for this time of year as in what color spin doctor with what lure. As for cut bait anybody have any thoughts on it this time of year. thanks

  13. I READ SOMEWHERE, BUFFALO NEWS I THINK, THAT THE NIAGARA BAR HAS BEEN HOT OF LATE. THINKING OF GOING SUNDAY 8/7/2011. CAN ANYONE COMMENT?
  14. Im having an issue with my spin doctors getting all tangled up when I set them up off the down rigger. My lure somehow gets wrapped around my spin doctor at least half the time. Ill usually have about five feet between the ball and the spin doctor. and then another 2-3 feet between the spin doctor and the lure. Is there a special kind of swivel you need to prevent this or just a good one someone would recommend? Do you use a swivel to attach the spin doctor to your main line? do you use a swivel to attach the lure to the spin doctor? And how many feet between the spin doctor and the ball and the spin doctor and the lure? Ive seen a few posts which say they set it out at least 20 feet. Does the kind of release I use matter? And What kind of leader? Is regular mono(usually use 30lb) OK? Thanks for any tips and good luck.
