  1. Good luck Songdog!


    Was in Wilson 2 weeks ago during the dumb fishing time but it was a blast when it was dumb!  We had a few boats connected so I hope you got a few to link with this weekend.  It is a big lake with lots of fish and lots of water to fish so room for everyone!


    Share pics of the fun so some of us can live Vicariously as we are remodeling the master bathroom for the boss! 

  2. Long weekend at wilson.  Didn’t do as well as some but did well enough to take plenty of fillets home. When your buddies think you are crazy when you tell them you were releasing up to 10lbs kings then they go out with you the next day and do the same they realize it is crazy!


    Saturday first it was a 200 steel that took the shots then a couple rigger hits then a dipsy kept getting clobbered then it was all riggers. 100-140 fow. Spoon preference change every hour. What took fish at 8am just dragging in the water at 9. Sometime we could t get back rigged up before another rod popped!


    sunday it was all riggers for us no steel or dipsy hits!  Again spoons changed each hr with each flurry of hits


    largest king was 18lbs

    smallest fish was below!!! Caught after watching my rods bounce as the lines pulled thru the bait!


    call out to Tacklemaster Matt for sharing on the water!



  3. Lady O started nice with 2-3’ waves then later in the morning the NE wind started ripping. Lady O is roaring now!!  

    Boated 5 nothing over 12#. Another handful of knockoffs. Best water for us was just west of wilson 120-150 fow. Dirty white boy hit a few. Seasick waddler and white/blue spin dr


    east Wind pushed us to almost the bar ending in a 45 minute wet and bumpy run back to Wilson 


    a couple of coolers at the weigh in had some 19 # kings but nothing for the board

    I may be interested,  but out of Olcott, so will probably have red barn to wilson covered

    West of olcott to Wilson is definitely in the zone!  We got pushed 6 miles east to olcott 2 years ago in the 4’ waves in my 19’ boat!  Fun wet ride back to wilson!!


    PM me your number and I will add you to the group text I create for the weekend

    I'm heading over Friday and plan on fishing Friday afternoon and through Monday. My crew and I are very experienced salmon angles and would be happy to share info. I can send you a message with my cell # if you like.


    i have you from last year. If your number is still the same starting with 248 we are good!

    We will be there mid morning Friday right out to the lake. Staying right in wilson til Sunday

    fishing was so great on Sunday when I got home I spent the afternoon cleaning and winterizing my boat!  It is in storage now and my fly rod bow and guns are getting the dust knocked off them!


    lots of stager marks on 40-50 fow. 1 good rip that let go!  Threw all I could at them with no luck! Nice skunking to end my season!!  I am better at killing large furry mammals than fishing somedays!


    good luck. Hope to see you at Wilson in the spring!

    So it wasn't just me. We started out in 80 fow and dropped the fish hawk every 25 to 50 feet out till we got to 450fow. I was convinced my fish hawk was malfunctioning. I even changed my batteries. We only got one small king all day. Our best screen was in 140 fow but the fish would not bite. I threw everything I had in the boat at them. We fished west out to the green bouy and straight out from there. It got too rough once we hit 450 fow to go out any deeper than that. 


    We ran west and started off devils nose for the wind at our stern in 100 fow out to 240 then into 160ish where the screen was best.  I even tried knocking them on the head with cowbells in 150 fow but could turn up a good hit!

    Told the guys with me that i questioned my probe a few times!!  But zero marks above 120’ said it was true!

  8. You have to fish when you can…. But when the north wind blows in the warm water……. Sleep in!


    Surface 70 degrees


    From surface down to 130 over 150-230fow = 70 degrees!!  I though my probe was malfunctioning!


    best marks in 160ish fow 140-160 down!  

    Found out I only have ~170’ of cable wire on my riggers!!


    NEVER have I even seen the temp so deep! 

    good luck to those that venture out later!

  9. Sandy creek state launch in Hamlin is free and you will be in fishing depth water in 10 minutes.  Genny River, I Bay and Braddocks you need to run out further to get depth!

    Of course the experience of the Genny river or I Bay recreational action and coast guard inspections might be worth the launch there!


    normally I trailer and launch out of sandy creek but I am docked for 2 weeks in Braddocks and had to fuel up at the marina after 4 trips out…. I didn’t even look at the visa receipt!!


    good luck!

  10. Fished last night 7/3 4-830

    started 120 fow immediately with a small king on dipsy w spin dr and meat. Followed with a small bow on 200 weight steel orange/silver spoon then slow


    moved out to 250 fow for an hr with very scattered mark but no takers. Ran back into 120-140. Lost track of number of small kings and knock offs or dipsy rips from 630-830pm hoping for a nice one that never came. Nothing on riggers until after 7pm.  


    dipsy on 2 setting out 150-175
    green spin with meat

    zero on flies

    Green/silver and  Black/purple spoons 

    riggers 50-80 down 


    hope this helps someone

  12. Yes I would like kings but…..


    after overheating 2 weekends ago and completing the repairs on Friday… we tried for 1.5 hrs for something in all the marks and bait we saw in 100 fow then changed set ups and went 11 of 13 on lakers (largest 13 lbs) in 2 hours including 2 doubles with my 84 yr old dad and another old friend


    I will keeping dreaming of kings but be happy for some action!!

    just east of sandy creek in 100 +/- fow

    2 riggers w/ cowbells and spin an glows  5-10’ behind the balls dragging bottom. First time I tried this set up ever!!


    hope this helps someone who just wants to catch something some days!

    It was a zoo out there. Stop counting boats at 80. Fishing was good, I actually caught a salmon that had two spoons, and a spinny attached to it. My guess is two boats got tangled up and it broke loose. None of the lures in the picture are mine lol.



    I lost 2 spin dr set ups last night!  Both to fish!  Release issue and a broken leader!!!  Green with crazy **** fly!  My daughters favorite!


    did you see the guy in the kayak between Wilson and the river on 100 fow? 


    not killing them here but not skunked either!  Nothing over 10lbs yet. 


    marks and bait balls to hit ratio is 100,000 to 1.  Never seen so many marks in the screen without a rod popping!!
