  1. Last year I went up to Olcott and was very disappointed in the numbers. I looked on here and everyone had a theory. The ones that stood out said the king bite during the summer months was way off so of course the fall run would be affected as well. How are the "numbers" this summer out deep? I am not asking for a comparison of 20 years ago but more of a comparison in the last 5 or 6. I will be bringing a newbie with me this fall so I would like to get him on a king. Thanks!
  2. Just curious would the west winds that warm the water turn on the smallmouth?

    Good luck Wes. I will take the Hobie up around Olcott for salmon in the fall. Don't forget the Fort Niagara area if you need a plan C. I heard the smallmouth are stacked in there now plus it's on your way home.

    Wes, chasing smallies they far from home? Lol. I have been doing well in Dunkirk but I think it's over now.

    Lake O

    We went out hard over the last few days and it was tough fishing. Nothing like the last couple of years. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. We did pretty good fished a total of probably 7 hours over 2 days and got maybe 50 smallies. I will post pics soon. My kids got some nice ones on their own. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thinking about going there from Ohio in the next few days. I went there last year in my kayak and it seemed like a pretty easy place for my son to catch smallmouth from it. Just wondered how the bite has been. Also, if we wanted to get into some rainbows, any idea where to go and how to target on that lake?
  8. Thanks I appreciate it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Is there a good bait shop near Skaneateles? Do they sell soft craws or crayfish? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. How would you guys describe the city here? My wife likes the shops. Is it sort of like Skaneateles? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Sounds like Keuka has gotten a lot of votes. Is it a decent like for kayaking or shore access? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Is there good shore access at this campground on Keuka? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. We are looking for a campground near one of the fingerlakes in June. I have been to Cayuga (Taughannock falls) and Skaneateleas. I like the shore access at Taughannock with the pier right there and the ability to pretty much get anything from the pier. Skaneateleas was good because it was easy smallmouth fishing from the kayak. I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to bring the kayak, but looking for any suggestions. One reason I like Skaneateles is because if I did take the kayak, I'd be able to take my 5 or 3 year old with me to get into some fish. It was a pretty easy lake to learn in a short amount of time.
  14. Didn't mean to send that last quote in a PM if you got one. But isn't 10 feet of water pretty close to shore?
  15. Could someone describe what this boom is? This is really my first year following this area. Sent from my HTC One mini using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. I work in Pittsburgh and go there weekly. It is definitely not cheap. It's not as big as the Cabelas and Bass pro, but has just as much fishing stuff, if that makes sense. But don't expect any discounts.
  17. I have been going out with Vince for about ten years now with a few breaks in between due to life/kids, he's a great guy. You are spot on about his humor.
  18. How do winters like this affect the bass fishing on the lower in the spring? Sent from my HTC One mini using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Got the one in the yak on a firetiger hj13. Do you guys think color really matters at night? Sent from my HTC One using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. It was the West Pier we got them on ko wobblers in green. Sent from my HTC One using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. 9-29, got there about 9, I got one pretty quick ,saw 4 others caught, I got a nice brown. We stayed until about 11:00. 9-30, got there at 8, two were caught right before dark. My buddy got one on his 5th cast this night. It was slow, that was it for the time while we were there, stayed until 11.
  22. When throwing hardware at night, is fluorocarbon needed? In Ohio I steelhead fish at night in gin clear water with no fluorocarbon drifting jig and maggots, and I do quite well.
  23. I have looked at all of those but it only shows needing a leader. Sent from my HTC One mini using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. I was out with a guide a few times and he tied this knot but it did not require a leader. He tied it right from the main line. Any suggestions? I am looking to tie a knot that will keep skein on better. If you have any better suggestions I am all ears.
