  1. Morning vs Afternoon bite How does the afternoon king bite compare to the morning bite (generally speaking)?
  2. Is the state launch open right now or under water? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I will also be up there tomorrow morning. Called wright's they said the launch is fine, but no electrical.
  4. Anyone have some pointers on catching walleye on calm sunny days? Cloudy days with a decent chop are the best, but when the wind is non-existent and sun is bright, what are your techniques? Prefer to jig and drift but have all the gear to troll as well. Any pointers are appreciated! Thanks
  5. Thanks for the input. I seem to always go about 2.5-2.8 and pick up a few kings, but maybe I need to speed it up a bit. Thanks
  6. I know this has been beaten to death, but I cant find a thread on it. What is generally a good down speed for kings (fishhawk speed). What temperature is a general starting point? Thanks
  7. Dont want to hijack the thread, but this question will help everyone. How do the fishing tactics change over the course of the summer? Right now we're jigging and bouncing harnesses. In a few more weeks does it change mostly to a trolling suspended walleyes, or can you bounce jigs off the bottom all summer?
  8. Nice!! She's already caught a bigger laker than I ever have!
  9. How many FOW and how deep do you run lures for lakers this time of year?
  10. Pretty awful fishing for us this weekend. Same story as most people regarding the kings. Saturday - started in 80 feet and headed NW. Hit 350 feet and headed back south. When we hit 320 FOW the 105 rigger started screaming with a glow spoon. That was our only king of the weekend, and she was a decent 20lber. Not much happened after that and headed back in pretty early. Sunday - Started again in close at about 70 feet and pointed NW. Didnt move a rod, and decided that we would rather go out deep and have some steelhead action rather than try all day for one king. Hit 400+ and had an awesome screen from 60-80 feet down. Put the riggers in that range and had a good steelie bite as long as we stayed out there. Gotta love the acrobatics they pull when they hit. Other that steelies it was real hard fishing. Will be back up next weekend, hopefully can find a few more kings then.
  11. What is the color and size for cowbells and spin-n-glows/peanuts does everyone use for bottom bouncing the lakers? Thanks in advance
  12. Gasket in my lower unit needs to be replaced.. Found that out the hard way on Ontario this week... My boat is out Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Does anyone know of a reliable marina or mechanic that works on evinrudes in this area? Thanks for any help Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. How does the full moon affect the king bite? Is it worth getting on the water before sun-up even with the full moon? Or is it better to sleep in and hit the water at 8 or so? Thanks
  15. I love my St. Croix Eyecon Medium-Light, paired with a Pfleuger reel.
  16. Nice video! How long are you running those leaders from the dipsy to the flasher? Seems longer than I've seen anyone run before.
  17. There are guides everywhere on the Kenai Peninsula. Silvers are real fun, and the reds are probably in their peak run during late july. A fly out charter is definitely worth the price it's so much more than just fishing. We saw a few bull moose, a few big grizzlies, flew over a few glaciers up close, and saw more spawning fish from the air than you can imagine. If money is an issue, someone with a little fishing knowledge and the ability to ask a guy in a tackle shop a few questions can do extremely well without a guide at all. Alaska is an awesome place, simple as that.
  18. When fishing browns this time of year, what temp and down speed do you guys look for? How deep generally? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  19. Does anyone have the Trollpro that records video at the ball? How does it work? It seems like it would be pretty cool if it worked well. Thanks for any input.
  20. Fished the last 3 days out of oswego, fleas are not bad
  21. Out here now, just landed a 20" steelie on 400 dipsey, caught 3 kings earlier on same dipsey. Hammer fly. Very slow for us
  22. We will be out of oswego all weekend as well, pretty stoked!
  23. The lower unit of my evinrude needs the gaskets/seals repaired. Does anyone know of a reliable marina near Syracuse area that can possibly get this done by this thursday? Thank you.
