  1. Sounds like a nice outing.

    Twili tip on Talora Help

    On one Talora I had to cut off the tip, I broke the graphite, so I just installed the twilli down further (all of about 1"). On others, the front guide has come off fine with a little heat. I use a small butane torch with a low flame.

    Lake Ontario Currents

    Did you ever figure out what to do with the currents you "see" on the unit? I.e. how to change your fishing approach?
  4. Bait shops in Olcott: Slipery Sinker - right by the launch, close and good selection ASB - A bit outside Olcott, in Newfane. buth with a larger selection. I typically run 30 lb. fluoro leaders on my rigger rods. I'm partial to the Torpedo snap swivels too.
  5. Thanks for the correction Sk8man!
  6. A go to spin doctor out of Olcott would be the white with green dots or white/white crush. If I had to pick two flies (one would be too few), they would be a Kryptonite pattern and a Stud fly. As was mentioned, SeaFlea is no more, but BloodRun does make a flea resistant mono. If I were you I would get the metal braid for your dipsy rods. It is hard to believe how much of a pain fleas are when bad. If you only fish a couple days, don't worry about a twilli tip. I would also add a couple DW super slim dirty white boy pattern spoons to your list. As for the high line, I wouldn't discount it. I have taken coho within 30' of the boat with a flasher/fly running right on the surface, but that is more if the water is stirred up and cold on top.
  7. Nice job! I can't wait for my annual trip. 1 more month to go. Save some for me!
  8. I have netted lots of half inflated mylar balloons on Lake Erie. Whenever we see one we steer toward it so we can net it as we go by.

    Reviving old planer board line

    There is a lot of counterfeit PowerPro on Ebay. PowerPro even had a message about that on their website a year or two ago. I would rather have a planer line snap than a rigger line though....

    Reviving old planer board line

    The Amish Outfitter line is pretty slick, releases slide down it very well.

    I've heard of people using silicone spray to help releases slide on the line.
  12. Olcott 8/3 & 8/4 Fished out of Olcott on the afternoon of 8/3 and morning of 8/4. We were planning to fish Saturday, but it was a bit rough! I hope the blow didn't goof up fishing, it was awesome for us both days. We worked 4-500' of water with the upper end of that range producing our bigger fish. On Thursday we took a mixed bag of coho, steelhead, and kings. The coho and steel had nice size, but kings were smaller. Lures didn't matter for us on Thrusday - spoons, flies, meat; they all worked and we had trouble getting our full spread in. On Friday we took another mixed bag with a screamer king and a few 8-10 lb kings, so better size. An atomic stud fly behind a chrome frog spinner and dipsy was our best program. 10 color cores, 300 and 400 coppers and the riggers also worked. We fished everything 65' or above, with the best success targeting the 45-55' depth. Despite one lost day it was an awesome trip.
  13. Nice work & thanks for the report! I'm counting the days until we make it up there for our yearly trip.

    Olcott 7-19

    Nice job! I still have to keep waiting until early August for my trip. Try to keep them corralled until then! Thanks for the info.
