  1. Yes we marked a lot of both all through the water column. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Nice job Finders Keepers, we also fished that water for a while. We ended both Friday and Saturday with two decent fish and a smaller one. We just needed that third good fish to give us a good box. We had a hard time keeping them buttoned up on Sunday, lost two really good kings. Fun tourney even though the weather did not cooperate. By the way I was the guy you threw your ropes to on Sat morning at the Fort during the blow off.
  3. As of Sunday afternoon Wilson (Tuscorora) launch was still closed and there was a barricade across road. Olcott was open for launching.
  4. That is super cool, memory that will last forever. Congrats to them all.
  5. 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.
  6. Does it have to be a 203? I have an almost brand new 303 that I can part with.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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'.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. We never made it out til 9:30 this morning because the lake looked really rough. Layed down for a while then the wind started to pick up a bit around 1:00 or so. Fishing was great from 10:00 to 12:30.
  17. I plan on trying it tomorrow, everything I see shows it starting to calm tonight after midnight. The hourly forecast shows 8 mph NNW by 6:00 AM. We will see how accurate they are. I am hoping its calm because I want to run off shore, I bet there is a lot of warm water inside.
  18. Took my buddy and his son and daughter (12 & 13) out this morning. I just wanted to get them into a few fish. Set up in 150' about 4 miles west of Olcott and pointed north. First fish came in about 190', decent steelhead took a sea sick waddler off a rigger down 60 but dropped it right at the back of the boat. Ended up getting a couple browns a decent steelhead on a green glow frog free sliding cheater on an 80' rigger. We got a couple smaller kings and threw back a few skippers. Every bite we had came on riggers, I could not get a dipsey with a spoon or FF to go if my life depended on it. Best action was between 200 and 280 fow 40 to 60 down. Kids had a lot of fun, got to fight a few fish and took a few home for dinner with mom and dad so I was happy about that. I'm wondering if I'm ever gonna catch another major again? I leave port and can't decide whether to go east or west, off shore or stay inside, it is tough out there this summer. By the way, I have never fished in those kind of fleas. They were sticking to everything from wire, treble hooks, swivels to mono and pretty much anything else they could get attached to. It was freaking insane. I could pull a rigger rod, clean the mono off and then do it again 20 minutes later and the line was just covered. I've never seen them stick to wire like that either, wow! Good luck everybody, tight lines! Here is what caught fish Sea Sick Waddler 60 down took 2 steelhead, 1 nice brown and 2 small kings. Mixed Veggie caught a nice little brown 60' down over 180'fow Green Glow Frog cheated and an NBK on a 75' rigger took a few skippers and smaller kings.
  19. I put up a post on how we did this morning. It's a new post though. It was slow slow slow, let us know how you do today.
  20. Took the whole family out today, wife and three boys. I had a hard time keeping my baits in good water temp. 60' down over 250 fow was best for us but blink and we were in 60 degree plus. We managed a few kings, nothing big, 13 lbs was the biggest. We lost a few also but it was slow to say the least. Everybody I talked to had the same results. DEC was at the launch and said there was nobody really coming in with many fish. The fish we did get were on an NBK spinny and fly and a couple came on a FLT glow and black spoon, similar to the king of sting. Had a nice time with the whole family together and the boys got to real in a few fish so all in all it was fun. For the record the 13 pounder came from 100' down over 260'. Cold water moved in near shore as well, 44 degrees down 45' over 80 fow. Good luck this weekend
