  1. I have pulled jets with my inline boards (TX22) but almost strictly use leadcore now. Like Landshark said you can always use snap weights. I personally like to run 5 or 6 color with a few ounces of weight up about 75' on the backing if I need more depth. That's not to say I don't run 10 colors on Erie in the summer. I modified my boards with an OR16 on the back and a SAM's Pro Release instead of the pinch pad release they come with. Love them this way, I will never go back.
  2. Wanted

    Does it have to be a 203? I have an almost brand new 303 that I can part with.
  3. Thanks for the live report Killians, I couldn't get out this morning but got a few hours in this afternoon. Went 12 for 16 in about 3 and 1/2 hours. Carbon 14 was absolutely on fire. We fished 200' to 350' and caught all our fish in the top 50' fow. We got 3 steelhead and 9 kings, nothing huge but did lose a screamer after it peeled off 500' of line (and the drag was not set loose) that must have been a good fish, oh well. Everbody I talked to at launch seemed to do about the same.
  4. For Sale : USA

  5. I have an RS King net that's brand new, it was given to me by someone and it's just a little to big for my boat. It's been used once and that is how I know it is too big. The hoop is octagon and measures 30" across, it is rubber with a straight handle that is 50" long. The handle is removable. From what I could find on their website it costs $189 new. I will sell it for $130 or trade it for a used but in good shape Tekota 600 LC or bigger. I will consider other reels also, just want something that I can put 10 color on or lc for another wire diver reel.
  6. King Slammin nailed it, I run 10 colors off the TX22 with absolutely no problem. My favorite leadcore setup on Erie is a 5 color then a few ounces of snap weights about 25' in front of the core on the backer. I usually run 4 ounces and it works awesome. I don't have to run all the long cores when fish are deep. Today I fished the bar and ran a 5 color on a modified tx22 board. Check out Anglers Avenue setup for the small boards. Basically it is a small OR pinch release on the backer instead of the pin and a different style release. It worked great, when a fish is on it or I want to bring it in its just a snap of the rod to pop release and the pinch pad holds the board on the line. The board flips around backwards and you don't have to fight the board, it just drags in and you pop it off when it gets to the boat. Can't wait to try this on Erie.
  7. Sorry Steeleman I must not have heard you. We had a couple busy times there around 9:00. We fished 220' to 320' east of microwave and down to the plant. We got 10 bites before noon and ended up 6 for 10. Mostly 5 to 8 pound kings but did get a coho and a laker. Wire dipsey's back 200 to 230 were good for us with spindoctor and flies. An NBK down 75' over 260 took a huge king and we had visions of heading for the LOC scales but he snapped us off just about the time I was scooping him up with the net. I won't say he was the winner but he was big, damn I can't stop thinking about it. I won't be out tomorrow because if our steelhead holds the number one spot we need to go to Sodus.
  8. Steelman I will be in Olcott tomorrow morning. I want to launch around 6:00. Feel free to call me on VHF if you would like and I will be happy to share what info I have. Boat name is Totally Hooked and I scan radio so should hear you on whatever channel you are on. I think I'm going to start about 180' and point her north to see what I get going.
  9. I have 10 Easton XX78 2413 Super Slam (Super Lite) only a couple have been shot and the rest are brand new. All are in perfect condition. I also have 4 Easton XX78 2413 Super Natural (Super Lite) in perfect condition. All have knocks, inserts and 4" veins, they are all 29 1/2" long. If anyone shoots aluminum and is interested you can have them for $60. PM me if interested, thought I would try to sell them here before Craigslist.
  10. Fished Olcott today ended up 11 for 12, mix of steelhead, lakers and smaller kings. Best bite was right around 350' for us. Mostly a spoon bite but did get 3 on FF. Temp was down 60'.
  11. How deep were you fishing? Seems you had as good of a day as anyone. I heard reports of slow fishing out of Olcott and Wilson. I have been running right to 400' but have not been out in a few days. I know lake rolled.
  12. Ended up waiting it out for a few hours this morning and was able to get out about 9:30 on a pretty calm lake. Set up in 375' at 10:00 and trolled north. Ended up going 5 for 8 between 10:00 and 12:30. All our bites came between 400' and 430' fow, temp was 50 down 95'. Riggers down 100' and dipsey's all took shots. Below is what worked for us. Mag dipsey on a 1 setting out 200' pulling a bloody nose took 2 and we dropped a big steelie on that one. Regular dipsey on a 3 setting out 270' with a white green dot spinny and Hammer fly took one and we missed a good rip. 100' rigger with an NBK spoon took a one and we missed one.. Dipsey on a 3 setting with an NBK spinny and Mountain Dew fly got absolutely crushed and broke off. 100' rigger with a SSW took a nice Coho. Nice mix of fish today. With the way the bite was from 10:00 to noon today I would have loved to be out there at 6:00 instead of 10:00. Oh well.
  13. 400 - 430 fow was where the bite was for us.
