  3. Thanks guys! Good luck to everyone this weekend! The water should be nice and flat!
  4. Had a banner day sunday morning after getting blown off the lake for saturday. Left the docks at 5:30 and had our spread set up by 6:00am in 100 feet heading north. We set out two riggers two wires, 2 flatlines, and three Lead cores. We had spoons on everything besides the wires. It wasn't long before the action started. Our first fish hit the 8 color lead core pulling a green alewife. Just a few minutes later we doubled up on the dipsy with a screamer. Shortly after jake brought a nice 8lb steelie to the net with Danielle close behind with a mid teens king! Everything we caught sunday was in the top 50ft of the water column. Throughout the day we had many doubles and rods were moving fast. Lost a few steelies on the flat lines and broke a nice one off also. Jake did great for his first time out this season and Danielle did great for being her first time out! By 10:00am we were 11 for 15. By this time the sun came out and shut down the fishing for us. We only managed to get two more hits until 12 but by that time Jake and Danielle's arms were tired. We did the best this weekend in 175ft-220fow. Jon did a great job mating! We finished up 11 for 17 to complete the great day on the water! Cant wait to get out on the water this weekend!
  5. Jason- Wayne and I were in similar water just I was east of him. We picked up kings from 120 to 180 but we were getting them only 50 ft down with spoons. Everything was a spoon bite for us saturday. Out in 200fow there was a 10 degree temp break with a good scum line that we were nailing the steelies just on the south side of it and getting them on flat lines, 2 color core and 8 color core.
  6. Had an awesome day on the water Saturday with Connor. We were out on the water by 5:30 and went 9 for 10. Our fish consisted of 1 laker 3 kings and the rest rainbows. Our biggest rainbow was about 8 lbs. Had two doubles and mostly was a rigger and leadcore bite. All of our fish came surface to 50 ft. Green was hot in the morning, then switched over to orange as the sun got higher. We were off the water by 10:30 and looking forward to fishing next week!
  7. Thanks everyone! Looking forward to hitting the water in the morning! Tight lines
  8. Always a nice way to break in the new boat! Nice job! ðŸ‘
  9. Gerritt and I left the docks at 5:30. Our plan was to head out and find the green water. As we got out there is wasn't hard as the green water was almost all the way out to 100fow. We set up in 60fow. We ran two riggers with sliders, two wires and a flat line and a 2 color core. We found that our best screen was in the 80 to 60 ft range. We picked up our first fish on a sea sick waddler down 48 over 60fow. We later got a rainbow on an orange crush and two small kings that came on a chicken wing and hawg wild on the sliders. We didn't have a bite after 9. Every fish came on the riggers and one on a flat line. We finished 4 for 4 and were in at the docks by 12:30. 5/25 Jon met me down at the docks at 5:15 and we were headed out by 5:30. As we left the channel the lake was flat with nice rollers. It looked like another great day of fishing. We set up in 60fow again to work the waypoints from the previous day. We found that the green water moved in a little bit compared to Saturday. Disappointing, we didnt mark or take any hits so we went in the 60 ft and headed west. As soon as we starting marking fish we hooked up with a good laker off of the 4 color core. Our spread consisted of two riggers with sliders 3 lead cores and a flat line. We ended up takeing a fish at least one an hour all the way till one when we stopped. Our deepest fish all weekend came 48 ft down. We had 44 degrees 30 ft down. We finished the day with 6 kings 2 steelies and 1 laker. Hot spoons were the chicken wing, die hard, hawg wild, and orange crush. We finished the day 9 for 11 with the highlight doubling up on a king and rainbow with them both jumping all the way to the net! Another great weekend on Apple Boy
  10. Thanks guys! Hoping the fishing will be better this weekend!
  11. Got the boat launched saturday and tested out the autopilot. Everything was working well and we were ready for Sunday. Jon met me down at the boat at 5:30 and we had a calm day ahead of us. We started out of the chute trolling east. We ran two riggers with spoon programs and off the boards, had lead cores and flat lines with stick baits. Nothing really worked well for us. We worked from 20 ft to shoreline till about 8. We saw a lot of alewives swimming around in tight. With the time we spent in close we only saw one boat hook up. We then pointed north and set up two riggers two dipsys and a short copper and 8 color lead core. We worked out to 120ft and found our best screen in the 110ft range. The bait was on the bottom to about 90 ft with occasional hooks on top of the bait. Other hooks we marked were on the bottom with very few suspended. We threw down some yellow to try to get some lakers to go and finally at 11:00 we got the skunk out of the boat with a laker. The weather was great out on the lake today and hopefully the weather will cooperate again for this coming weekend. Boat ran great and looking forward to another great season! Tight lines- Apple Boy
  12. Thanks for the help! It ended up being the A wire was the red and the B wire was the black!
  13. I am currently also installing the sport pilot helm unit with the ACU 200. It is very disappointing with the user manual not being much of a help and seems to not be updated to this new unit. The wires to the sport pilot are red and black. The manual says that these are a blue and brown. Not sure if the red wire is the A wire or the B wire. Any help would be greatly appreciated! - Apple Boy
  14. Apple Boy!! Penn Yan 225 outrage! Boat is a fishing machine!
  15. Still quite a bit of ice on Erie that I saw while flying from Buffalo to Detroit.
  16. Nice video! This method works awesome! Apple Boy
  17. Got the day off and was able to fish in Apple Boy. Connor and Jon met me at the boat at 5:30am and we talked over our game plan. We decided to run out and start for salmon instead of browns and we are glad we did!! We had our spread in the water by 6am which consisted of two riggers, 4 wires, 8 color and a 2 color lead core and a 300ft copper. We started in 80 ft and by 150 the screen was getting better. We had one release on the rigger, but nobody was home. It hit a uv tuxedo. At about 6:40 the action began. We circled around to hit the spot again and it was game on!. The 250 dispsy(3 setting) took off and Connor was on a decent fish! Just the time he got to that rod the 240 dipsy on a 1 setting pulling meat took off! Doubled up! Jon was clearing the copper which was down the chute when the 180 dipsy also on a 1 setting started screaming also! Tripled up but we quickly lost that fish. Connors fish came to the net first and was 20lbs roughly. It hit white board green dots with a ultra green glow fly. My fish was staying deep all the way to the boat. The king I had did not want to come to the boat. For a few minutes it swam about 10feet behind the boat 5 feet under the water! Very Cool to watch! Jon did a great job netting the 27lb king while Connor was navigating us back north to our way pionts. We had non stop action throughout the day! As the sun got higher we changed sea sick waddlers on the rigger over two uv gator board with a uv dolphin fly with uv gator spoon on the slider. We changed the white board with green dots over to a chrome board. Also put out a blue dolphin spin doctor with a uv dophin fly. We had a few hits and a miss on the dipsys and we lost a fish on the meat while it was screaming! Connor fought a nice screamer on the rigger with he uv gator e chip but we lost it due to a tangle. The mono was rubbing on the wire which cut a whole in the mono and broke us off. You could see the fish on the surface so we decided to go get the fish and our lures! While I was making the turn connor yells, "the planer board" which was out of site in the lake! For some reason the board flipped and acted like a dipsy diver and dove down! We cleared all the dipsys and the other lead core and made a hard circle to get the board in! It was very scary! We got set back up and Jon got a 5lb king of the dipsy, and conner got a 7lb laker! Our plan was to pull lines at 2:15 but at 1:50 the 400ft dipsy takes off with the blue dolphin board! I was on the rod, Connor was driving and Jon was clearing lines. It went all the way out to 700 feet and the started chasing the boat. Then back out to 700 feet! Very fun fish to fight but unfortunately we will never know what it was. Got it to 150 and the leader between the fly and spin doctor broke! We then decided to call it a day and go get some lunch! We finished 6 for 10 and cant wait to get out again with these guys! -Apple Boy
