  1. These T style aluminum plates slide in the open bottom area of the older style Cannon Mag 10 downriggers such that the large knob that secures the DR to the mounting base can't be unscrewed. They are 1/4 inch aluminum plate and the Master locks are keyed alike. I'm no machinist and cut them by hand with a hacksaw but they worked fine for me for 6 years. Some piece of mind for leaving your DRs on the boat. $25 for the pair. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. We take a cruise up the Genny every fall. At certain points in the river it's almost like you're not in the city. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. And as Brian said the Irondequoit public launch is closed. You can launch at Mayer's marina. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I'd take them in the bay for bass and maybe a wallie. I've fished out of IBay the last 2 weeks and although I've marked fish I saw no action. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I buzzed out N of Hedges this PM and trolled the 370 to 430 depth. Temp was down at 70' so set the riggers at 60'-65' and varied a bit around there. Marked a fair amount of fish and had some chasing the lures but no solid hits. Had one release but it was just after getting the line down and I think it was my error.
  6. Thanks for the report A-Lure. I hope to get out there this week. Scored some fantastic browns there last year at this time. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thanks for the report Spikes, good to keep track of what's going on in our neck of the lake. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. The biggest difference I have found was going from the round cannonball weights to the torpedo style. Less resistance in the water and true depth and line tracking. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Same out of IBay. Had a couple hours before family cook out so trolled the 80 to 140ish range NE of the bay. Marked a good share of fish, had a couple chase the lines, but no takers. A nice day anyway before the weather turned. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Thanks for the post Brian. I'll be heading out on the east side shortly to try my luck.
  11. Parts from the 2 Mag 10s I just retired: 2 motor units that work fine; 2 swivel bases; 1 boom assembly is OK but the cable spool is cracked; 1 spare rod holder with clamp; 1 mounting block that attaches to swivel base. Electrical connectors on motors are the new style, same style as my new Mag 10 STXs came with. Not sure on exact age but can get the S/N of the one unit if that helps anyone. $50 OBO for everything. Located in Webster and will not ship, local pickup only. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Nice going, and your dog is a pretty good photographer too! Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Mud chickens, now that's a new one to me. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I can attest to this report. Had the same results on Sun the 23rd. The Thurs before it was very hot in that area. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Decided to enjoy the weather for an afternoon troll. Fished from 3:30 to 7:00 N of Hedges out of IBay in the 400 to 500 fow area. Best day in a long time with 4 very nice kings all on yellow or white flies with spin doctors. 3 of them in 420, one in 460, all down 125'. 17, and 2 at 19 lbs. The 4th made it next to the boat after 15 minutes of running but I couldn't net him. I believe it would have been the biggest king I would have ever caught. He broke my 30# P-line but I got a very good look at him. Took over 400' of line out and jumped about 4' above the water at one point. Even though I didn't get him in the boat the fight was well worth it. Didn't expect much at that time of day, but it was a pleasant surprise. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Gee, I was planning on going out via IBay around 3:00 for the afternoon. So you're saying I should bring extra beer to fill the time?
  17. Hey, I want to fish with you if it includes nap time! Thanks for the report and nice job on the catch. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Based on reports from Sat thought I would head to deeper water N of Hedges on Sun morning. After all, the NOAA wave forecast was 1' or less. Ha! Once I got out there it was a 1-2' chop with the occasional roller underneath. Note the horizon in the picture. Set up about 250' and worked my way out to 450'. I found one heck of a hole in the 380-390' area that drops 70' in very short order. Marked a lot of fish and lost 2 before landing this 24 lb guy. FF combo with a silver/maroon flasher followed by yellow/white UV glow fly 95 over 420 fow. The reel screamed and I pulled the DR up and just let the wind take the boat NE. The wind/boat cooperated well and the GoPro captured the rest. Solo fishing can be relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I stocked the freezer the week before so I took great pleasure in watching this one revive next to the boat and take a deep dive home. I guess my query last week on fishing N of Hedges paid off!
  19. Thanks for the report. Looks like I'll be putting the throttle down to head deep in the morning.
  20. Nicely done! Between this report and the IBay report from A-Lure, looks like I'm heading deep in the morning.
