  1. Arrived in sandy creek mid morning on the 24th hoping to figure out where the fish were hiding. We were greeted by some large rollers and a north east wind. We managed to work our way out to 200 FOW and drop lines. Fished for a few hours, broke a rod in half, and only pulled one small steelhead out. We figured tomorrow would be a grind as well. We were wrong.

     

    On Saturday we hit the lake just after 5 am,  headed East, and set up in 75 FOW. We set a 40 and 65 foot rigger plus a 140' and 175' dipsy. First hit came on the 40' rigger with a seasick waddler spoon but no one was home. Next the 140' dipsy got smoked but the wire snapped costing us the rig and fish. For the next 5 hours only the 175 dipsy got hit. We ran a 11" chrome two face spin doctor with a 42nd fly. First we pulled in a few lakers then a brown. When we hit 80 - 90 FOW we started to see some big marks on the screen. 175 dipsy goes off and we bring in an 18 pound king. Two minutes after we reset it we get hit again, fish rips off 250 feet of wire and we bring in one just over 26 pounds. After an hour we stop marking fish so we pulled in the lines and ran back to where we started. Again two minutes after we set the 175 dipsy it gets hit, we get a 17 pounder. Reset the dipsy and it took 10 minutes this time but we get a 19 pounder. Hit the dead water and pulled lines again, ran a few miles back and repeated the troll. Caught a few small lakers and another brown on the 175 dipsy. Repeated the troll one last time with some smaller fish being caught then headed into the launch to finish the day. 

     

    Weighed in with a 80.52 pound box for the shootout and finished 8th. Great tournament and run very efficiently, we cant wait for next years event.

  2. Just a heads up that there is a boat that’s half sunk north west of Wilson. 5 feet of the bow is sticking out of the water and it has and orange flag tied to it. Coast guard is aware of it. Told me it sunk at Golden hill a few days ago but they haven’t been able to recover/sink it.

  3. To try to get more people to enter from the Chaumont area is what I heard.  I think it is going to cause more people to not enter from the rest of the lake.  Another poor decision on Dave's part IMO.  If you want to increase participation, add a walleye division and better payouts for the divisions. 


    Ya I agree they should have just added walleye, on the west end of the lake walleye are few and far between this time of year, way easier to catch steelhead.

  4. This sucks, I did some repairs on the sodus bay pens to get them ready for this season and I’m going to do some work on the oak orchard pens in the next few weeks. I do the welding on my dime to help support the pen projects. Sodus bay got eliminated completely which pisses me off since I used my gas, material, and time working on them. I will do the work on the oak orchard pens as promised but can’t see myself doing it in the future if the cuts continue.

  5. Two reels both with 900 feet of 50 pound power pro and 300 feet of 45# copper. Neither set up has been used too much. No rods. The CLR 553 LS could probably fit 400 feet of copper on it. Asking $100 for each reel or $175 for the pair. Located in Wilson, will be driving to Sodus bay on the 26th. Will deliver or ship as necessary.

  6. I love doing salmon with a brown sugar and soy sauce marinade. I put a fillet in some Tupperware, cover the fillet in brown sugar and add enough soy sauce to dissolve the sugar. No real measuring involved. Let the fish marinade for 2-4 hours, 2 hours is just fine. Grill meat side down for some nice char marks then flip skin side down to finish.

    Just remembered this 39 pounder caught in the fall LOC a couple years ago. 47 inches long. Don’t mean to beat a dead horse but no way that fish was 42.

  8. Jumped out of Wilson today looking for browns in close since the lake flipped and there was a bunch of thunderstorms around. Only one fish today that came on a spin doctor and fly on a dipsy. Currents were nuts out there with over 2.5 mph difference from the surface to the ball. The one fish we caught is hanging on to second place for brown trout in the LOC.

  9.  

    Shot out to 300 FOW in the morning. Hit 3 steelhead and 1 king. Kept trolling to 440 FOW before turning back to 350 FOW. Lost a bigger fish on the 70 foot rigger. Wire dipsy set at 240’ with a lemon ice spin Doctor and fly was the best set up of the day. Temp at 70 feet down was 45 degrees and best speed at the ball for me was 3.1 to 3.3. From talking to other people at the launch seems like 200 FOW was pretty good as well.

     

    Fleas were terrible!!!!
