  1. Well that was a bust. Weather report looked great for saturday. Trailered the boat up to Lake O, 5&1/2 hour ride, lasted about 20 minutes, was hoping it was fishable out past the break walls but no such luck. 3 to 4 ft waves with about 6 foot swells. Safetly made it back in the mouth of the Salmon, casted plugs, spoons and even fished fresh skein, not only did we get skunked, never saw a fish caught all day, fished till about 2pm then made the drive back home. total waste. 

  2. I fish NYC reservoirs and troll leadcore, no motors allowed, row power only. Millers have been my go to spoons for 40yrs. 22, 66 trouter and #3trouter, they are a little heavier than the flutter lites, the 22 was only in flutter lite so when ever I got a hold of the fixed hook 22's I remove the single and replace with a treble hook. All 3 are great for Browns or Lakers. Your spoons look great by the way. In my opinion those spoons with a swinging treble would be a perfect fit for spring Browns or Steelhead, and I would be interested in purchasing some. The #3 is a smaller version of the #22 just a tad longer than the #66. I always thought about what would happen if Miller went out of business, so I always over bought. Still have maybe 100 active millers and another couple dozen still in packages. But hey you can never have enough, my two sons also troll and I won't give them up, sorry boys, LOL  So your spoons would be a perfect fit.

  3. My son is going to Lake Erie walleye fishing, their preferred method is trolling plugs. He wants to try targeting Steelies. What would be his best bet, I have whatever he would need but not sure where to get him started. Dodgers/plugs, flashers/flies, what color spoons/size, dipseys, leadcore, any and all help is very much welcome. Also what depth or temp would he bee looking for. 

  4. Once the sun goes down a lantern over the side will bring them right to the surface, as they start to show up dim the light and they'll come closer. A small hook sabaki rig will jig them up nicely.Put them in a cooler about a 5gallon size with about 1/4 cup of dissolved Kosher Salt, do not use table salt the Iodine will kill them, add a couple of ice cubes to slowly lower the water temp.The Kosher salt keeps a slime coat on their body and keeps them nice and hard not mushy.Salt is the game changer keeping them alive.Also a good aereator , I like to use 2 minnow-misers

  5. Been setting up my 19ft smokercraft for Lake O for the past 3 yrs. Used it Striper fishing this spring and the motor died on the way in. Just had time to look it over and seems the top end is blown. Can't see putting money into a 30 yr old motor. If anyone has , or knows of a 90hp outboard fairly new or in great condition pass it on, maybe I might get up for the summer Kings after all. Any tips would be appreciated.
