Ended up with a 13.14 steelie lamprey attached, great fight for my father in law who's a new be, to take big fish for today so far, ALSO A 9.14 STEELIE FOR MY BROTHER IN LAW. of course I lost a steelie in the 12 to 14 lb class after 3 jumps. we caught some smaller steel, one shaker salmon, and lost a bigger salmon after a long run. it was great to get out and enjoy K OZ again, Good luck everyone and remember enjoy our world class fishing !

  2. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:k oz ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):5/12 Time on Water:8 hrs Weather/Temp:51-53 Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: alot Total Boated:18 Species Breakdown:10 coho, 6 kings, 1 steelie, 1 laker Hot Lure: black n silver Trolling Speed: Down Speed: 2.2 - 2.5 Boat Depth: 50-240 Lure Depth: ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS Fished from 630 - 430 with a break in between. We ran 5 rods 3 riggers from 55-80 and 2 dipseys mono at 250 and and 180. first fish a 7-8 lb. steelie on a blue silver nk. Then bill got a 17 lb. king on a green nk. from there it was coho city with a few med kings mixed in. Fish were all over the water column. The kings were deeper 75 plus. We fished from the red barn to somerset, from 50 to 240. it was a great day to be out. Did not mark much bait at all. We tried to fished high for steelies and low for lakers, picked up only laker in 57 ft of water off somerset on a dipsey. i learn something new everytime I'm out. i ran into alot of nice people. i can only say this - most people don't have the means to go and fish lake o or if they do they may be a first timer, or have their family and kids with them, they may not be perfected in the art of trolling, i must remind myself of why i fish and that yes i want to catch that big salmon, but i am privledged to have the opportunity to do what i do and would be happy for anyone to do the same. I was a poor kid who grew up on the east side of Buffalo i had to survive, confronting people on the water is not the proper thing to do, i can agree to disagree, but i don't think there are many fisherman sober or not whom are out to purposely make another fisherman's day miserable. i have to remind myself of this all the time - I'm not perfect, were not perfect. Fish n have fun it's what were born to do ! LIFE is GOOD !!!!! ====================

  4. Heading out to the pond tommorrow afternoon. was going to head up to olcott but might give the outside of the bar a shot, temps are as high as they normally are in the 2nd week of may. i know if the kings are not there the lakers are. it's hard to give up the mixed bag off of olcott though. Will report tommorrow evening on my decision and how it went, LIFE is GOOD !!!!!!

  7. Was able to fish late into the season this year, This boat has been good to me i have a new cruiser waiting for the spring so i am posting one last time till i put her in storage till april. What I have is a 23' 1983 Proline walkaround. 1991 Yamaha 200 hp 2 stroke with oil injection, tilt n trim, runs great, and a 1993 trailer dual axle. Transom and floor are solid i used once a week last 2 years from erie to ontario, fishing and tubing. Tops out at 32 mph, Very reliable. Perfect size handles 4 footers but can trailer easily with my durango. New tires on trailer, has basic gps/ fishfinder. Trailer needs lights paint, boat will need bottom paint - It is what it is. More pics and video available - Boat has bimini with windless also, dual batteries, 3950.00. Tom 716- 229-9909, Thanks.
  8. Thanks for the info, i will try again in a couple of weeks - I have no leadcore or copper, tried them and don't prefer fishing that way, but I can get my dipseys down to 70' and 50' off the planners - and will bring a downrigger next time, i will fish the south end like you guys said with spoons and a couple flys, nice lake and thanks again for info.
  9. Fished saturday morning out of geneva, cold wind 10 mph out of nw. Never fished this lake before i live on erie and troll both there and the big o, i was intrigued by the prospect of fishable water. Setting out fishing in a 16' polarcraft my 25 hp yamaha four stroke we fished didseys with spoons anywhere from 20' to 70' down over 60' to 240' nothing, no marks on sonar fished 2.3 to 3.2 on top water temp was 45. Nice scenery and not another boat , could see down to bottom in 30' of water. fished west shore. Did mark perch or lakers on some humps off castle on the bottom though. Any suggestions may try cayuga bnext time, how deep are fish through winter, should I run planner boards? Any trip is a good trip it's in the thrill of the chase.

  12. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Time on Water:0615-1100 Weather/Temp:hot Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: 3-4 Surface Temp: 76 Location:olcott LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 15 Total Boated:10 Species Breakd10wn:6kings,2 steelies, 1 rainbow, 1 brown Hot Lure: black pearl, green Trolling Speed:2.5 - 3.1 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 75-140 Lure Depth: 40-60 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS 3 of us headed out of olcott at 0615, I was late. Very hot and 3 building to 4 footers from the ssw. Wanted to stay inside hoping it was somewhat calmer - just alittle - started to run 4 on riggers and 2 on dipsies. that lasted an hour with only a shaker on the rigs, and an 7 lb. king on dipsey. thought it would be easier to run 4 dipsies and let the riggers sit- that was the right call. I run mono to dipsies. outside at 2.5 each out140 and 180. 2 inside at 0 setting at 120 and 130. within an hour had 6 matures on boating 4 from 19 to 22 lbs. on middle riggers. any coler spoon by itself worked. Had to troll se to nw and back. last hour kings died, but managed 5-6 pound steelies and a tiny brown. Only a couple other boats out, worth the waves. fyi have been out for 3 other trips over last 2 weeks averaging 3 fish an hour. what a great year. life is Good !!! ====================
