  1. Leaving the dock at roughly 5 am and ill be out all day but could bring you back half way through, or pick you up after 2 and take you out for the end of the day going out of Olcott
  2. John, No worries! I will have another opening once again in a week and a half if you want to tag along. It would be Thursday July 29th and I would be happy to take you out for the day. Jerry 330-352-2724
  3. Hey John I will be coming up to do some charters this weekend and have a free day for pre-fishing on Friday. I will be by myself as of now and heading out of Olcott. Let me know if you would like to tag along. Olcott might be a bit if a drive for you? Best of luck to you and let me know if I can help out. Captain Jerry 330-352-2724 https://www.hookcharters.com/
  4. Seems like all the fish moved to the bar, or so I heard. No wonder with the East wind last week... Nothing out of Olcott and not much out of Wilson. Back next weekend for 4 trips. Good Luck everyone!
  5. has anyone been out the past day or three? I will head up tonight and post on how tomorrow goes.
  6. Just for giggles - has anyone been out to see what the water tepms are in 400+?
  7. I will post as well when I head up. I usually don't start running charters out of Olcott until Summer, but am starting a little earlier this year. Good luck to everyone in the LOC! Capt. Jerry https://www.hookcharters.com/
  8. I am heading up for a shake down on the 10-11th. Looking for any reports out of the Olcott area. Thanks in advance!
  9. Is anyone in the area the first week of January who could check the dock area and let me know if the lake has iced over? Looking for one last trip with the boat. Thanks!
  10. Crushed em at 220-400 we had 4 on at one time at one point. a few doubles. great fish! all spoon bite 60-135 down Captain Jerry Hookcharters.com
  11. I am going up tomorrow and will hit the water in the afternoon. Going out by my lonesome if anyone wants to come. My charter is coming up for friday. HookCharters.com Captain Jerry 330-352-2724 Text me if interested. Maybe heading out 2-7 or something like that.
  12. I will post a report if anyone cares. Seems no one has been out there.
  13. Yes I just told my guys plan on Friday and maybe not Saturday
  14. Has anyone been out of Olcott recently? Coming up Thursday-Sat and was planning on starting at the mouth and going out to 300-400.
  15. Again, Only about 15 years of knowledge here, but this time of year, with winds like that the last week or so, go to 450 - 500 and start there. The more turbulent the winds are, the more the likely active fish will move out (stay out). You mat not get the staging Kings ready to spawn, but there are thousands of fish still actively feeding. As things settle (week or more consistent or mild winds) the more they will bite closer to be biting inshore. I am guessing later this week in shore will be a good bite, but as the hurricane end-trails scoop up, the more likely the fish will scatter again... just my opinion of course . I will be back up late September/early October. Will post again at that time. Hurricanes can mess things up big time... but... Salmon can only "not feed" for three days at a time. They are eating machines.
  16. In my opinion, you can still find a decent amount of fish anywhere 350-500 depending this time of year. I am guessing inshore will be hit or miss. I will be running charters until October, and will hit depth a lot of the time, and will stay in tight when the lake has been calm and the column and current are more predictable.
  17. Ya good point - I am concerned about that. 40 feet between coppers isnt gonna cut it unless conditions are perfect. I am merely trying to make smaller circles to get back to the bait when I find it.
  18. Thanks for that. I run a similar program, but if i run big boards it can take forever to get back to the bait. Some days it is difficult to find bait, so then I end up raking a mile wide pattern at a time hoping to stumble upon some. I just added a pair of outriggers to somewhat compensate for eliminating the big boards. As a general rule will you always drive around to find bait before you drop? Thanks again!
  19. Greetings all! I run a charter boat out of Cleveland but also run many charters on Lake O. I have noticed that it seems to take me longer to limit out than some of the other Captains. I am pondering whether it is better to run out the big boards and run 10 lines to rake as much water as possible, or is it more efficient to find a school of bait if possible, and keep lines (4-6) closer to boat and keep running over the same bait ball back and forth. Thoughts? Capt. Jerry
  20. I tried it on the Taloras - total scam. No response after PayPal payment. nothing ever got shipped. PayPal refunded my payment immediately. They keep starting up new companies under different names.
  21. Great job! Same for us today - went to the bar and only got 2. Where did you go out of? We are going out tomorrow and Tuesday. Good luck~
  22. The bar - hadn't thought of that so much thank you for the idea. We stay in Olcott so that is our go to. Perhaps we will start at the bar Sunday and see what happens. Didn't do well at the bar last month so I was a little gun-shy. Definitely appreciate the advice!
