  1. The rain should not have impact but fronts usually have some kind of impact. Just remember thunderstorms can carry significant wind within the storm and obvisously you dont want to be holding a rod if you see lightning. If you have a charter you should be able to stay out of the rain and the rigger will be the one getting wet. I wouldn't worry unless you see thunderstorms in the weather predictions.
  2. I found a 2010 18' Trophy walkaround with 115 mercury efi. Im just curious on your thoughts on an 18 footer. i understand sleeping in the cuddy would be a little tough or nearly impossible. I am really looking for a multi purpose boat thats easy to tow that i can fish lake ontario on good days without getting beat up like I do with my 17' Polarkraft.
  3. I was there all week. The wind was tough in my 17 footer specially since all our salmon came from 500-650 FOW. We did manage to put a few in the boat with the biggest at 23lbs. It definitely wasn't as good as the past couple weeks but still had a good time. The best rig for us was the dipsy rod out 350 on a 2.5 setting with the green pokadot e-chip with shredded hammer fly. Unfortunately my dipsey rod was out of commission by the end of the week. Thursday was the only day we ended fishing the whole day.
  4. Alacy, Do you tow it much? Im just curious how it tows. I have a 2007 Tahoe so I should be able to tow it no problem. But living in CT its a good ride to Oswego.
  5. Thats the same model I am looking at right now. I would be going from a 17' Polarkraft. Do you know if you can ski off this boat? I still need to be able to use it with the family if I get rid of my polarkraft. It seems like a great fishing platform if you need to tow. The only thing that this one is missing that I want is the hard top with rocket launchers.
  6. You think a church "walleye" board will pull 400 feet of copper? Or do you think I need the size one up?
  7. I been using copper for a while now, usually just run it down the shoot. Im just curious to your opinions on where to run it. It can be a real pain in the a.. when you have to reel it in when trying to clear the lines when running down the shoot. I have even set it up on the tower sometimes to try and keep it out of the way.
  8. Ok thanks. I plan on going up next week i guess I will throw the fleeflicker on a couple of the reels. Yeah I still never understood how you can be 8 miles out and as soon as you put one laker on the deck the flies start finding you.
  9. They usually start going away in the beginning of august. Definitely gone by september.
  10. You can catch them on the smaller stick baits but your going to have to slow your speed down and than your spoons may not have the right action. I like running the larger stick baits because you can match your speed with the spoons. 2.3-2.8mph depending on the day. This year for me the alewives were around and they were huge soo thats probably why everyone was having success on the larger stick baits. When the brown are concentrating on the gobies than you are usually better off with a smaller stick bait. I did find some gobies in the stomach of some and they were the size of a F7 but most of my browns had alewives.
  11. This will be my third year going up there for the first week in August with the family. Actually got married there last year. Ofcourse the boat and fishing equipment always come with us. We had a pretty good year last with the LL with I think 6 for the week. I have more troubles catching lakers than salmon. Probably my speed has something thing to do with it as I would rather catch a LL any day over the lakers. Anyway for my time of the year, I always have to find atleast 100FOW and fish anywhere from 80-110 down. If you find the depth they are in there are plenty of them, sometimes I can count 18-20 lakers on the my fish finder. I have been doing good on stingers but again probably because I run faster than most of the guys up there and hot shots. For some reason I can't catch them on the peanuts that I have great success in Lake O even when i slow down.
  12. I like 20lb Trilene XT but if your running flasher fly combo I guess it really wouldn't matter because your going to use a heavy leader to the fly. Aslong as you can fit enough line on the spools 200yards minimum. The only time I think the 20lb would make a difference is if you were to run a straight spoon. For salmon fishing I don't want to have to tie a leader and 20lb seems fine.
  13. Wow, After rigging on a boat I really give credit to your rigger. I can't imagine removing all those hooks and getting the rods back in the water. Great video.
  14. Yes I will. I been addicted since the late 90's. And now my stepson is addicted. I have 40 inch stripers 30 minutes from my house but I still nothing compares to Lake O for me.
  15. Yeah we got two browns with lampreys attached. I never knew how fast they can reattach after I pulled one off.
  16. CaptSpike you had the lund right? Yeah the afternoon bite was nonexistant. But every morning we found fish in that warmer water we even found 54 degree water on Tuesday away from the mud. The water did move west but not past the river. I tried west to Rice Creek on Tuesday morning but only managed one fish. Its nice to hear from someone I actaully taked to out there. Puting an 11lber is still a good trip.
  17. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:F1sh-0n ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):5/7-10 Time on Water:5:00am Weather/Temp:60 Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: 0-2 Surface Temp:48-54 Location:East of Oswego LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 24,23,10,14 Total Boated:14,23,8,12 Species Breakdown:Smithwicks, Stingers Hot Lure: NBK Stinger, Black/silver orange belly Trolling Speed: 2.3 - 2.5 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 15-20 FOW Lure Depth: Downriggers down 4-5 feet ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== When I saw the weather report for Saturday thru Monday I told my 14 yo stepson to start packing. We got up there Friday night about 10pm after stopping at fat Nancy's on the way. Got some 411 from them and than headed to K&G lodge. On the water at 5am and headed east. Fishing was non stop action till about 11am nothing huge but some decent 6-7lbers. Went in to get some food for dinner and headed back out for the afternoon bite (which was non existant for us) and some walleye on the way in. With the Oswego flowing at 28,000 the walleye bite would have been tough. Who needs walleyes when the BT bite is that hot. Sunday back at it again and holy crap did we find the mother load. We were the only boat around and we were nailing brown after brown. We ended with 23 and one over 10lbs and came in at 2pm when the action had slowed a bit. Monday my alarm did not go off, well it did but it went off at 4:30 pm not am..ughh. Anyway for some reason i woke up at 5:30 looked outside and saw light. We threw everything together and got on the water by 6:30. We still managed 8. The water got a little rough and we called a day at 1pm. We headed over to Pulaski for a break and ended up fishing some 2 footers off the salmon river and couldn't get a rod to fire. We made it to the grindstone and back called it a night. Decided we had to stay another day and decided we're going back to oswego. Tuesday we went west of the river to only see 48 degree water. After an hour with one fish, told my son to pack it up we are going back east. Well that was the ticket. We managed 12 more browns. With one pushing 12lbs. And also my stepson got his first decent steelie at 10lbs. Also broke what I would think to be another steelie as we saw it jump a couple of times. I think our final total was 54 BT's (3 over 10lbs) 3 Steelies (1 - 10bler). This is a trip that may never get repeated but never forgotten. This was my stepson second time up. We didn't make it last year due to the weather. This kid is just as addicted as me. I mean how many 14 year olds can troll for 17 hours. Soo pumped that we had a great trip and my stepson enjoyed himself. I told him he's been spoiled for the long days with one or two kings if your lucky. I knew I married my wife for something I just didn't know it was a fishing partner..hahaha. There were tons of alewives around with birds and trout spitting them up on the deck. It should be good fishing aslong as the alewives stay around. I already can't wait to head back up.
