  1. Would break my heart to catch walleye and not be able to eat them.
  2. Thanks very much for the additional info on the super baits. I think I'll order some and give them a try. We probably have 10 cans of tuna hidden in the back of the cupboard we'll never use. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I took a look at Brad's super baits. Which ones are you using for trolling on Lake O and do you do anything to the tuna other than drain it? Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Sounds like our morning at Braddock's. Exciting but a little frustrating. Came home with a nice one in the box so all's good. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Fished out front of Braddock's in mainly 150 to 220 fow. Started late around 8:15. Got a spoon and a FF on the DRs and 3 minutes later the spoon fires, hit and run. Bringing that back in and the FF fires, with the real screaming like I haven't seen years. My stepson grabs the rod and the fish is peeling off line like crazy. It slows and he starts to slowly coax it in and it runs again then nothing. It ripped the fixed end of the swivel apart at the fly. We were 65' and 70' down as temp was just about 70'. Marked a lot of fish this morning had many hit and runs. Lost an entire FF combo on one. NBK spoon and yellow flies did well. Landed a nice 17lb king that we kept. Later AM hits came about 90' down and the active depth was 180-190 fow. Quit about 11:30. His first time out so all the action made for a great day. Footnote: I'm cleaning the fish and prepare to fillet the 2nd side. I resharpen the fillet knife and drop it point down of course. It hits the inside of my big toe and leaves a 3/4" cut like a scalpel would. A little gauze and electrical tape and I finish the job. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks guys, I did look at the depth map of the lake around there and see the bottom has a greater slope than closer to the bay. I have been going towards Braddock's some times this year with better luck. Just wondering how the E end towards Hedges would compare.
  7. I ran into a fellow fisherman at Mayers Marina who said he has much better luck fishing the IBay area when he heads N or NE of Hedges. He said he doesn't drop a line until he gets just NE of Hedges. Does anyone else have this same experience? Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. You guys almost make me just want to stay on the couch and save my gas. Almost.
  9. Nice post and very nice catch! I'm a recent Braddock's convert too. If the lake conditions are decent I'll buzz out that way. The 20 minute ride from IBay is worth it. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Had my brother from Jamestown up for some Lake O fishing. He fishes Chautauqua Lake for walleye and bass. Friday night we fished for 2 hours just NE of IBay in the 140-220 for area. The steelhead lit up from about 7:45 to a little after 8:00. 4 in 20 minutes. All on green/yellow flies with gold or silver SD flashers. Yesterday went about 1 mile east of Braddock's in the 140-190 range marking a lot of fish. Got a late start at 10:00 but still plenty of action. More steelies and one nice 16lb king. DW NBK spoon and similar neon yellow and orange/yellow FF. He took some nice salmon and trout home.
  11. Nice job Ric! Thanks for sharing. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Thanks for the report. That's a nice king. That 200' area was active last weekend also.
  13. Nice brown, Steelie looks good too! Thanks for the report.
  14. Welcome to the club. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Thanks for the report. I'll be giving it a shot around 5:30. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Thanks for the report Yankee, a nice trifecta. Seems deeper water is a better bet currently.
  17. Nice fish. I headed about 330 degrees due NW not quite to Braddocks this morning. Fished mainly the 200 to 300 fow range. Had 2 trips of the riggers and boated one steelie. All FF hits, blue/blue and green flash/purple haze fly. Kinda wish I kept going to the 400 mark. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Nice catch! Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Thanks for the report, I'll be heading out there soon. Yes, sounds like they are working more towards IBay area.
  20. Thanks for the report Wally. Sounds like it might start to pick up in the IBay neck of the woods.
  21. Thanks for the report Brian. Glad you got out and into some good fish. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Great pic of the little one surveying the wonderful Lake O! Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. I dock in I-Bay and seeing how it's been very slow out there decided to try near Braddocks. Marked quite a lot of bait and fish in the 150-230 fow area NE from the bay. I don't know this area very well as I usually fish from the river to Hedges, so can't be more specific about where. About a dozen boats out near me and conditions were better early rather than late AM. Hit a couple steelies at 55 and 60 over 160 on a NK wonderbread spoon. They were in the 7 to 8 lb range. Took a nice 12 lb king on a flasher/fly down 78 over 210. Overall much more action and activity in that part of the lake than out by I-Bay. I've been out the previous 3 weeks due N and NE from I-Bay and nothin'! Well worth the 20 minute cruise west. Will do again. Sent from my SM-T580 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
