  1. Went out for afternoon troll set up at 2:00 wind had changed from south to north marked bait but not many fish after running in search mode finally started to get some good marks in 180 down 80’ caught one on white spin doctor uv gas meat rig called it quits lake was at 3’s and 4’s at that point wasn’t supposed to change direction north east until 8:00 just can’t trust the weather prediction.
  2. Out of fair haven fished from 140 to 300 a lot of the same water we’ve been doing well in. Didn’t mark many fish or bait did end up 1 for 2 with a 5 lb salmon both bites came on spoons behind dipsy back 185.
  3. Tried evening outing, got out on the water by 4:00 bite was good nothing big two @ 7 and 9 lbs and maybe 4 lb llost 5 others inside 100’ from the boat one fish fish we lost managed to take the ring and treble hook completely off…. Never had this happen before.. any of have this happen before….. best water seemed to move north east from the chute out 200’ to 220 for us… most fish were marking @ 80 to 120 down.
  4. Got out in time to see the sun rise lines set by 6am morning bit was good fished in 160’ to 190’ mainly. Seems like meat is heating up only brought 3 strips got one 16 lb salmon then we had two on both meat rigs at the same time tangled together at 75 ft out broke one off the other got off. Had one strip that was beat up but tried running it. I think it just wasn’t running right with that strip flopping back and forth. After that just a spoon bit with smaller salmon. Not sure about fishing with damaged strips but that rod never moved after that, any information would be appreciated. Good luck be safe
  5. Fished today 6 am straight out from the chute caught one on white 10” spin Dr with a pickle sunshine meat rig and the other on the 80’ rigger with a sea sick wobbler. Fish were both small 7 and 8 lbs … quit at 9:00 buddy that was with got sea sick so called it a day.. beat water was 170 to 190 … good luck
  6. Thanks for the report, going out Tuesday will report when we get back.
  7. Fish straight out from the chute started in 100 ft out to 200 ft best water seemed to be 160 to 170 caught one on meat, many little ones on sea sick wobbler spoon… all kings kept 4 …12 to 16 pounds best troll was into the wind couldn’t get any bits with the wind .. fished 6 to noon… fun day on the water … everyone have a great fourth good luck
  8. Definitely interested thanks for the post.
  9. I see that they are now SS without the half weight just hard to pull the trigger on the purchase because of the price… I wonder if anyone makes them here themselves… I thought I could make them from tin myself … still have some time to think on it… this site is awesome and the number one reason I’ve been able to learn and advance as much as I have in this sport that I love. Thank you for sharing it always been a great resource.
  10. Right now I run a 7 and a 10 color lead core on my boats so I’m planning on using them into July or maybe August with the copper… thanks for the tips, especially on not needing the extra keel they are very pricey, it would cost as much as I paid for the boats originally.
  11. High guys, haven’t post in couple of years but bought lot of new salmon equipment. This year I added a 300 and 400 copper. I added a second keel to my otter boats and was curious about how far out to the side you run boats to help mitigate tangle possibilities. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
  12. Have not used copper but want to try it next year so I’ve been looking at the Penn series reels I’m thinking the 30lw will handle 500 copper or should I go to the 50. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. Got out at 5:30 lake was nice at that point couldn’t keep the spoons down for the steelhead bite in about 150 ft of water. Kept heading north with dipsys at 300,325 and 350 and riggers at 75 and 80 ft. When we got to 250 ft had 3 small Kings in the next 30 min then had 4 in the next hour that never got to the boat. Got rough at about 10am started packing it in, when bringing in the 350 dipsy it had 110 feet still out my buddy says hey hey I got one, I thought no way but when heard the drag go out I was surprised, it ended up being the biggest king of the day 12 lbs. never had that happen before how about you guys. That spinny and fly couldn’t have been more than 5 or ten feet down. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Went out Sunday at Sodus with my daughter had one good hit in 210 ft of water on the 325 dipsy but lost it. Trolled for the next two hours finally got this king on a green and chrome spin doctor with a solid Green atomic fly down 90 ft on the port rigger in 360 ft of water.

  17. Haven't had a lot of time on the water do to my elderly parents being sick but so far smart troll system has worked good for two of the three trips to the big O. Not sure why but last trip out I lost signal from probes about one hour into fishing, called own (who I must say always answers his phone) and we were unable to get signal back, that very same day he sent a hole new system out to me. this owner has a passion and ambition for the development of this system and given time it will be the best system available. Although this new product does have some issues I think it is worth every penny to see depth and temp at my dipsy divers you can run as many as six probes at the same time. Owner is still working on speed and as soon as that becomes available I will buy a third probe. One thing I will say is that Darrell the own is definitely standing behind his product. Just wondering if any other smart troll owners have any thoughts or feed back on this product.
  18. Received my smart troll probes today, as for now, probes with speed are still unavailable so owner refunded my money for whole unit and told me to use it and we would work something out when probes with speed become available. Here are the pics, I put a pen next to the probes so you can make size comparison. I plan on keeping everyone informed as to product, service and how it preforms. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
  19. I went from starting out with 10# then went 12# and for this year I have 15#, fished deep often last summer (100' to 150' down) and the blow back was terrible. I would spend the extra money on torpedo weights or sharks if you can afford them, ball weights don't cut the water like torpedoes therefor you get more blow back with ball weights. Good luck.
