  1. Monster!  Agreed great event that continues to get better every year!  

    The last couple Reelin for a cure we fished my poor ladies battled some good ol fashion sea sickness with rough water. . Today I was able to take out two women that have never experienced fishing and the weather was absolutely beautiful for them. Congrats on your great finish. Their already telling me we’re making a long weekend out of the trip next yr

  2. Today I took my woman’s team fishing for the Reelin For A Cure tournament out of Olcott. With not being on the water much this season , and reports that the lake had flipped/cold water moved in I definitely felt like we were flying blind. Being late in the season and a 6 fish box it was an easy decision for a strategy. Goal was to go offshore to find our box as quick as possible, and if need be go back in side looking for a staging fish. We started fishing at the 28 line on a north troll and within about 20 min we had our first fish in the box. We spent from 630 till 10am in the 29-30 line where we ended 4 for 7. The strategy was almost working but the big steelhead were just a little to slick for the ladies. We had a couple of nice big mature steelies that really put on a show. As the bite died for us we decided to pack up and go for the hail mary inside. I knew at this point the box was way to small and big matures were the only hope. We settled in 200 fow with 1 1/2 hrs to fish. 45 min in the diver got absolutely annihilated and I knew we had a nice one. My daughter fought him from 400 foot out to 300 before needing help, in came the second teammate and the king stripped all the way back out. Tag the 3rd teammate and the king finally settled down landing us an absolute stud. That definitely boosted the moral of the team but before we knew it the motor bogged down, not good. We called it immediately and hopes the big fish was a possible money fish. The big male was shy of 26 and another lb or two was needed. Overall we had an amazing time, beautiful weather, raised money for the greatest cause on earth (women’s cancer), and just good fellowship. I’v always thought the fishing community was the most gracious community and today just solidifies it. If you’ve never experienced a tournament your truly missing out.IMG_8238.JPG

  3. Do you start offshore and stay out there? Or do you start shallower and work out? 

    If I’m fishing an afternoon and think the offshore bite might be there then I always run to points immediately. I’ll peak/work the area, if it doesn’t pan out then I’ll rocket in for the last couple hrs inside.
    If I’m on a morning run I’ll usually start inside . If the morning bite dies/or is not there I pack up and motor out.
    I prefer the offshore bite . Past couple weekends I would head out and it simply wasn’t ready. Yankee Troller had a post of a great offshore bite last week, a couple of my captains friends also had same experience, so I was hopeful it was game on. That’s why it’s nice to have people share info.

  4. Good going Jeremy pays to experiment along the way and at least know where they aren't rather than following the herb blindly:lol:

    When I got around the 31/32 line I had about 5 boats around me (between Sandy/Braddocks). Most of the guys I fish around were expecting the offshore bite today. Personally once we break into August I rarely fish the inside. I’ll stay offshore now pretty much till Hunting season starts.

  5. Had a great day solo out of braddocks , other than my probe decided to not work. At first light I set up in 100 fow North troll ,with a good screen . I caught 2 kings 100-140fow both on riggers 70-80 down (gold Martel and carbon 14). Hearing the bite was offshore I decided to just hold course and see how we panned out. The 200’s I had a week screen and not until 350 fow did I take my next couple fish. Diver out 210/250 with flasher/fly. Next was 300 copper started grabbing steelhead when I broke 500fow, and 550-575 was solid . Ended roughly 10 for 12. One mature fish breaking 20lbs, kings 12/15lbs, and steelhead 5-8lbs.

  6. Took my nephew out for a quick afternoon run. The advice from Rigged was head west , so we settled down in 130fow in front of the light house. We had a slooooow but steady pick . Unfortunately we never could get dialed in, but we managed a couple mature fish as well as some low teens . IMG_8066.JPGIMG_8063.JPG

  7. Was finally able to squeeze an afternoon trip in with my daughter. With the light north winds we figured we’d make a run offshore . A friend had good luck in 350fow in the morning , so that was plan B . We set up in 550fow and basically enjoyed each other’s company with no fish in the first hr. We packed up and slid into 300 on a north troll. 400-425 we found great screens and had a nice pick of steelhead 8-10lbs and kings 15-18lbs. 300 copper, and riggers 45-60 took all our fish with zero diver shots. Ended 5 for 7 with calm water and an absolutely spectacular sunset. IMG_7920.JPGIMG_7923.JPGIMG_7917.JPGIMG_7911.JPGIMG_7918.JPGIMG_7925.JPGIMG_7929.JPGIMG_7922.JPGIMG_7931.JPG

  8. Jeremy that would be fantastic! Only thing for me next weekend, is I have a kayak tournament on Saturday. I fish the NYKBF series and we're on Hemlock and Canadice next Saturday. I'll message you my number, and we can stay in touch.
     

    Sounds good. I fish solo or with my daughter 99% of the time. Hopefully between a handful of guys you can get a couple trips in. As summer keeps heating up i do most of my fishing in the shipping lanes and such. Good luck in the tournament

  9. I'd take him up on the offer John. He is a very good fisherman, with all the right equipment and the right attitude as well from everything I have seen. great opportunity:smile:

    I appreciate it. I’ve had many opportunities to take take guys out from LOU and had a great time with this community. Like John I started for the “kids” or so I told my wife to justify the expense . Iv had a lot of local Captains willing to let me tangle a line or two to learn, best way is hands on

  10. Hi All,
     I've been working off and on for the last several years, trying to figure out a lot of this fishery. Would anyone be willing to take me out, teach me the proper way to set up the rods, downriggers, the whole gamut? I'll gladly pay fuel, food, time, etc. Or recommend a charter captain that would be willing to do this? I'm tired of fumbling around. I have 8 year old twin boys that are really showing serious interest in it, so it's important to me to learn to do this properly for a change. Not asking for secret spots or any of that stuff. Just education. I learn much better from hands on, rather than watching Youtube. I don't even need to reel in a fish. Just set up, and tackle recommendations etc. I'm in Canandaigua, but traveling isn't a problem. 
    Thanks
    John

    I’ve been dodging kids events all yr but next weekend weather permitting I’m hoping to get out do some fishing. I’m always more than happy to have a guest. I primarily fish afternoons out of braddocks or bald Eagle.

  11. Fished for a couple hrs with my daughter yesterday afternoon till the lightning . We had a decent screen 150-180 but we couldn’t get a bite. Slid out to 200-230 and ended 3/6 losing a slob at the boat. 300 copper took stealhead , riggers 75-95 , divers 210-250 took the king shots. Overcast I was running gold Martel, gold 42nd, and carbon 14

    With kids graduations, senior ball, junior prom unfortunately I’ve rarely got out this yr.

    Next week finalizes most my obligations and then we’ll be focusing offshore where I love to fish. Hope everyone enjoys Father’s Day

    Took a nice long run with the boat to make sure she ran well and fished for an hr in front of braddocks. 80-120 we caught lakers and lost out first mature salmon at the back of the boat. This weekend we should be out of weather cooperates . Much needed day on the water

  13. Fishhawk is a must but if your not getting bit at all then you really need to get with someone who’s consistently steady catching fish. Reading a good bend in a dipsy should at minimal keep you at a catchable speed. There’s so many little details to fine tune to get consistent and a solid fisherman can cut that learning curve in half. I got blessed with a lot of guys feeding me info/techniques and it builds the confidence . The ability to throw a great mixed spread , pick good starting points, etc all come with experience. Just keep grinding away

    This day the cold water was inside . I fished mostly 130-170 during the day and before sunset slid into 100-130. My lures were parked 45-50 degree water midday and before sunset 50-60degree water.
    When we set up wind was out of the East and smaller (delicate) setups worked best. The winds tuned to the west and the FF and mag spoons kicked in
