  1. Many have tried lol. Lots of stories out there but I have not. Let us know how it works out if ya give her a go Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. This time of year the big thing is to fish the marks. Salmon start thinking about staging so they start ignoring temp soon. Earlier in summer we put our deepest gear around 42 and then stagger up from there. Many opinions on this one but 52-58 is always great for us for steelies and kings. You can find steelies all the way to surface In summer we look for brownies where bottom is 60 degrees Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  6. I recommend that you use the smallest but heavy duty ball betting swivels you can find for spoons. We use torpedo or Spro. You get what you pay for in swivels. They are not cheap but worth every penny. The ones you can buy at bass pro / Walmart etc are worthless for these fish For flies we use a larger swivel in front of the spin dr or flasher and then another one in between SD and leader. We don’t worry too much about them being smaller on that set up as it isn’t really that stealth. Again higher quality ball bearing is a must. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  8. Way to go! Can’t get over how dark that first one is Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. It’s in your swivel A meat rig is not a stealth presentation so I would say upgrade and possibly upsize your swivel. Get a good one with ball bearings appropriately sized for your flasher and rig and you should be fine. Good swivels are expensive but worth every penny Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Other than reel capacity why not mono backing ? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Blue works well for us when deep Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Lots of opinions on this one to be sure but I’ll start it off. We use frozen cut herring. Used to use familiar bite but now use the stuff from Rigged on this site. His stuff flat out catches fish and holds up well. We throw a tray in the cooler and go all day. For rigs we have a bunch. Most are Twinkie rigs and we usually run behin an 11” flasher or paddle. Minion on here makes great rigs. Troubles as well does quality. Both are good guys to work with Pop a strip in and pin it with a toothpick. Break tooth pick off, drop her in and make sure you have a good roll then send her down and get ready. Meat rigs have really come a long way and really have been killer on big kings. From May to sept we always have one down. Most days are big fish come off meat Hope this helps Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Perhaps I missed it but what is your boat equipped with. Do you have downriggers? Dipsey poles? If yes you are in business Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  15. Dandy!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. Top secrets video is excellent of wanting to use free sliders. That is exactly what we use. Excellent producer most trips on big steelies and occasional kings too. Just remember when using a free slider or cheater and the rod pops You need to reel like crazy. A lot of fish are lost because the rod pops and the guys on the boat thinks you missed them when in reality you need to reel the slack up quickly then game on. You will love them Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  22. I’ve done both with smelly jelly and without. Same results. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. Steelies usually hang in the top 1/2 of water column. From surface to 50-70 ft. Many use reds/oranges but standard king spoons will take plenty of them too. Good technique is to run a deep spoon for kings with a free slider which will nail your steelies. Bump your speed too. I’ve caught them on meat and FF but generally spoons is the ticket Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
