    Thanks for the "plug" on the medium 'BEE #569. Really appreciate all the help I can get./JIM

  2. Only grabbed photos of two of the bows.. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Thanks Reel Doc. We got two with that method today. My last and final report for 8/14. Fished out of Sampson again, tried both sides in 100-150 fow. Kept everything high except for the previously mentioned flasher fly which took a two lakers, one 18” and one a hair over 20”. Temp was anywhere from 40-60ish down. Kept speed 2.3 and above. Pretty slow day for us until the end when we landed 3 bows in a row. One 14”, one 15” and one 17”. Two smaller ones came on the trusty diver / sutton combo which has been producing all week. The last and biggest came on a rainbow trout speedy shinner which was stacked @47’ down and only 30’ back. Only other fish was a itty bitty salmon my wife pulled in on the same speedy shinner. All fish released to fight again. Thanks for the fun Seneca and Cayuga lakes! If all goes well maybe I’ll be back again next year (or sooner). Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Last day on the water. I’ll be on channel 63 if you’re out. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Now and then yes. Been changing it out but yesterday I had a 124mm deeper diver on a 3 setting out w a green flasher and fly half the time and it took both the lakers. My hot diver has been a silver 107 deeper out 175’ on a 3 setting with a Sutton 44. Gonna lay low today, if weather is ok maybe get out tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. 8/12 - Back from Cayuga. Fished out of Deans cove, went south almost to sheldrake then north as well. Marked lots of bait, fished anywhere from 120-300+ fow. Ended the day with two lakers around 20”, one 19” salmon, one short salmon and one short rainbow. Hot spoon was a Sutton 44” on a diver. Riggers never fired once.

  7. My last update for 8/11. One more small laker boated before coming in on a 200’ wire diver trailing a Sutton 44. Back at camp and cleaned the bow for dinner. Never seen a stomach so full of 5-6” sawbellies. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Out again this morning on Seneca in 90-150fow. One 19.5” bow took a large honeybee down 70 over 120. Was surprised to get him on such a large spoon. We had a 2.6 downspeed at the time as well. Another handful of lakers released ranging 19-23”. Might try again tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Hopefully Monday or Wednesday. All weather dependent. Probably launch @ deans cove. Gonna head back out on Seneca tomorrow I think. Try some different areas and some different spoon sizes to see if I can connect a few more times. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. First time out and I am reporting as promised. Just got back from fishing out of Sampson Marina. Headed to the Nwest side of the lake to try to play the winds which have kept me on the trailer since arrival. Ran a spoon program hoping for silver at 2-2.4mph. No silver but Landed 4 lakers. One with a lamprey which was promptly made into two and “released”. All fish looked really healthy, released well and swam away strong. Headed in at 11 when things got rough and I got hungry. Was pleased for 2.5 hours out. Spoons which took fish were a Sutton 44, Medium Honeybee in green (finish 569), firetiger Jake spoon and green alewife scorpion. 52 degrees was anywhere from 35-45 foot down depending on where I was which surprised me. Hopefully I’ll be out again soon! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Thanks guys! I appreciate the advice. Hopefully I’ll get out of the office in a while so I can finish packing my gear. Then I guess I should start packing clothes too HA! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Hi folks! Well it’s been another year since I last posted and likewise I last visited the area. My trip went well last year. I only fished Seneca and despite coming a week or two after the flood we still managed some good catches between storms. I have been following everyone’s reports so thank you everyone. That’s said, I had a few questions I was hoping someone might be so kind as to answer. Setback from ball and ball type? Any thoughts? I will be bringing sharks both black and silver as well as standard ball. On Champlain recently(most of my trips) the setback have been as close as 8-10 for silver and I havnt gone much past 25’. For lakers it doesn’t seem to matter. Spoon size? Again, on champ I have had most success on small stingers then up to Sutton 44 and medium Honeybees. Not much larger unless going for lakers on bottom. How big do most folks start off? How big are the alewives running? I think that’s it, I’d love some info on the above as I daydream here at work! Looking forward to finding some fish and exploring both lakes over the next week (starting Friday!) I’ve got everything from grease traps to 30lb blood run sea flea to electronics so I am hoping for favorable weather/winds. Will do my best to post a live or daily report over the next week so I can contribute as well. Here’s a few pics from Champlain as thanks for reading! Tight lines!!

  13. Thanks man. It was pretty busy in there so I wasn’t looking to throw anyone off their game asking for fishing tips LOL [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Haha Nice! I’ll drop a line shortly, hopefully I don’t interrupt dinner. [emoji51] With the weather and my Thursday checkout I may try and fish Cayuga instead on the way home. Also, Boundary Breaks was the last stop for the wife and I. Grabbed a few bottles and we are enjoying them here on the deck. Stopped at Brewer’s in Ovid per Sk8s advice. Pam was epically nice to talk to and it was a cool little shop. They don’t make them like that these days. Picked up two Great Lakes spoons and a few MI stinger colors I didn’t have. Only one okie dokie on the rack and I wasn’t confident in the color so I left it. In retrospect I should have bought it, such a unique spoon. Thanks to everyone for chipping in with advice. Hopefully the lake lays down tomorrow and I can get out. 🤞🏻 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
