  1. Great Job Les! I am more curious on how you took those leaders off solo and still got the fish to the boat! what pound weight did you use on the end of your rigs?
  2. Thanks Les! I really owe it to the boards, flta club members and the folks like you who share the knowledge! I am just trying to pay it forward.. to be honest I do keep secrets close to the chest that guys tell me are secrets. All my reports are really things you can find anywhere on the internets or by following other captains on YouTube!

  4. Owasco Lake September 2023 Summer Fishing Report Jeremy was in town this weekend for a URRG Upstate Research Rocketry Group launch and met me in auburn Saturday evening to fish the Finger Lakes Trollers Association Owasco tournament the next morning !! First hit of the day at 630am was a reel screaming 7lb rainbow on a 250 copper pulling a moonshine walleye glow perch. As it stands this is the biggest rainbow caught at a club tournament this year! Jeremy brought in that fish perfectly! Rumors at weigh in was a lot of bows were coming unbuttoned at the back of the boat! The rest of the day was a flasher fly bite! Bringing in 3 solid 6+ lakers to round out a decent box! Congratulations to the birthday boy @Bo Hunter for a 30 lb Box and the win! Wow!! What a great birthday present!!
  5. Lots of stagers in 80 ft west of the genny tonight. Moonshine RV green ladder backs picked up 2. We only fished from 7pm to sun down.
  6. Go to the Irondequoit pier before sun up and see what other people are doing.
  7. to be clear though I am running 10lb 15 foot leaders off the back of the 30lb.
  8. I have been running the blood run seaflea 30# all year and haven’t had many on those rods all year.
  9. Nice Job! There is still a lot of fishing left in the lake before winter!
  10. I have found them at mitchels in rochester and on their website. The purple uv dr death however is proving to be elusive.. http://www.warriorlures.com/FishingSpoonDisplay.aspx?ID=355 http://www.warriorlures.com/uveliteseries.aspx
  11. I really like my slide divers and I am running the mag rings with the standard weight not the upgraded weight! I find on a 1 setting it’s 1 foot down for every 2 feet out using wire dipsy line! when running divers I push my led cores way out on planers to avoid tangles. I have a fishawk TD that I have used to better understand that line to depth ratio! I haven’t done it on a 2 setting yet only the 1 setting that’s a 1 foot down for every 2 feet of line. I also run 50 feet of 30lb mono on the slide diver proper and tie the wire and mono via a nice barrel swivel that will feed into me rod and reels level wide guides. hope this helps!
  12. as a kid we fished almost every morning and when I turned 14 and got my boat license we hung out daily at the rope swing just south of the waterfront
  13. Thanks Scott! See you down there in September!
  14. Went on my 38th week-long vacation, and this time, it's my 5th year hauling my fishing boat along. Added some excitement this year with my newly acquired 21-foot Trophy Walkaround. Most of the time, we were more into hunting exotics than specifically going after lake trout. We covered every nook of the Crooked Lake, mainly aiming for different spots and points, hoping to reel in some Atlantics or a Bow, but luck wasn't on our side this time. But when we did decide to target lakers, things started picking up once we nailed down a plan. Our best setup was 8 rods cruising at 1.9 mph in 130 fow, and here's the gear we used: - Planers - 5 color with a Smithwick Firetiger stick bait - 7 color with a Reel Rage Electric Muffin - 220 weighted steel with a Reel Rage Brown Town - 250 weighted steel with a Stingray "You Can't Afford It" - Downriggers set at 50 feet and 55 degrees, holding a Moonshine Walleye 1/2 Moon Gold Perch, and a Warrior Flutter Purple UV Alewife, both with a good 30ft lead - Wire Mag Slide Divers doing great work at 1.5 mph over 111 feet, loaded with Moonshine Walleye 1/2 Moons in Blue UV and Purple UV, each rocking a long 30-foot lead. Our luckiest spot turned out to be along West Lake Road, around 2 miles south of Switz. At 130 fow, we teamed up with my dad, and things got wild—7 fish in an hour, even scoring a double and a triple catch back-to-back. Unlike two years back, we noticed a shortage of bait this time, especially around the Bluff area. Through the week, we kept about 4 lake trout for lunch. Funny thing, all their stomachs had were perch minnows. Most of the catches were the usual 2 to 3-pounders, with a handful tipping the 4-pound mark. Those little fish must not have much of a shelf life with not much grub around. Despite the rain playing spoilsport, it was an awesome week of fun. Gotta say, that boat cover was worth every penny, keeping us dry and happy!
  15. Good Job Dan! Those kings will rip up your gear..
  16. I have caught 4 so far this year which is my PB! Is anyone seeing an increase in Atlantics
  17. Nice Trip! captian songin stated in one of his reports that the bigger ones are off shore
  18. Lines in about 530am we were the first boat out in 100 fow west of the Genny. It’s amazing what a week makes as the 50 degree temp was at 55 feet down! Set on an east troll with riggers set at 50 feet with a green hulk 8in spin doctor with a fly and the other rigger at 55 with my go to green night and a gold NBK free slider. Dipseys were parked at 30 and 55 feet down. We caught all our silvers above 55 feet and the only laker on the bottom at 130. Laker was on green jeans glow flasher with an alien glow gambler spin n glow. Mostly a rigger and dipsey bite for us but did get 1 king on the 7 color and an Atlantic on a 150 copper. Went 10 for 13 with a couple doubles and almost a triple. 8 kings, 1 laker and an Atlantic back at the dock by 1030am The chinook diver #3 and the hulk flasher fly Matt brought took most of the fish! Thanks @Hickel24 for bringing some gear!! Best depth was 110 to 150 fow. We were able to get away from the pack and after we found some good bait we just circled them all morning for a nice steady pick! https://www.facebook.com/anthony.desalvo/videos/566667299003886/?mibextid=DcJ9fc
  19. Thanks !! You name the date and I will make it happen Scott!!
