  1. Have a fiberglass boat and looking for recomendations to have the transom replaced in the buffalo/Niagara falls area. Thanks.
  2. Well the boat ran well. Was stumped why the new fishfinder wasn't working correctly. Fished blind for 6 hrs. until I kicked myself in the a$$ and found that the transducer plug was not inserted all the way. worked 80' area. Notta.release. All good for shake down cruise. Now that I have eyes I can focus on fish. Hope to get out another time or two before winterizing boat for season.
  3. Thanks for the come back NymphO. Heading out about 9-10am and work inside water. New motor in boat and need to break it in before I have to winterize it. Haven't been able to fish all season. Will post how the trip goes. Read a post from sandy. Guy was picking some matures in 15-30' of water draggin J's. Worth a look if water has good color .

  6. Wheres the go pro footage? Decided not to fish it this year. Good report and good job. Was there a small craft advisory on Sat. for them to call it off. Last year I remember fishing 2-4s with no advisory. The water moves so much at this time frame its tough to find good fish. The Big Shadow

  9. Glow frog, hi ho silver work. have few other colors but have not had a chance to use them.
  10. I started using the MC Rockets. Like Jeremy said. I bought about a dozen bodies to try out and the owner also put in a letter and a couple free bodies to try. Have a informative website and videos. They catch kings. I recommend u go with the regular size bodies. The mag size are to big and needs material removed to get them into the bait head. Have not tried scents with them yet. My thought is to put a small wade of cotton soaked with canned herring fillet oil in the bait head. hopefully I get a chance to test it out yet this year.
  11. To access the bar. the Lewiston launch is open and in good shape
  12. Olcott 7-4 Launched about 11:30. Got info fish were out front in 100-160'. Water was 42-45 degrees down 60'. turned some shakers , about 2pm worked out to 240' came across temp break and ACTION. Had 52-60 degrees 60' down and landed 3 teenage kings, nice coho and 3 steelies. Had a couple knock offs, lost a king and couple more shakers. took fish on riggers set 45-60' down, dips 140' back on 2 had action and ten color leadcore. silver spoons (tape colors grn, strawberry, purples) worked, along with mc rockets behind white grn dot paddles. pulled lines about 5pm. from 100-240' most all marks where at 50'. None deeper. Happy fourth of July and good fishing
  13. Keeping your eye on posts for the neighborhood will give ya an idea of where the fish are or were. Its a big lake. fish are always moving. there one day and with the increased current flow and winds 5-7miles away the next. I chk out the lake surface current maps, noaa surface temp map and modis lake images to help give me a picture prior to going out to possibly give me a start point and then search and hopefully destroy. If u have a positive picture, work on bait colors. keep your eye open for color/ temp breaks that have a good scum line or debris. zig zag across them to see if its holding fish and diff in surface temp. hope this helps.
