  1. Fished hard all morning. Lost a screamer by Webster Pier at dawn. Water was gin clear so I searched for stained water and found it near I bay. Marked fish near those metal silos on shore but no takers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Nice job...I was in the same neighborhood. 2/3 Esmeralda Bay Rat. Things turned off for me around 10 am. I couldn’t keep my boat straight in the wind and change my set so I settled for along boat ride to end the day. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Took me a bit (still does) to figure out winds and waves near my favorite Rochester launch points. Hopefully a quick share of this link will lessen the learning curve of a few others: https://forecast.weather.gov/shmrn.php?mz=loz063 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Good eye! Been working a little at a time on my set up. Between the mast and the riggers and the Helix and the Fish Hawk you are spot on...just need flat seas!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Hard wind from the south for me and my smaller boat during the PM bite. Didn’t bother with mast and boards in the gale so I ran rats and spoons on my riggers over 25 fow. Intermittent marks as I neared Webster. Managed a fat laker. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Add a few extra turns to your program as the turn can help to dial in your speed! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. I was out too and had to make a hasty retreat in my Tracker. “2 feet or less” was too much! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Got out to 175’ at 5 am and set up with a glow set of spoons at 75’. Waves picked up and tossed me around until 8:30 am. Nothing. Joined the crowd in 135’ and fished 50 degrees and the marks at 65’ with some old reliable spoons. Nothing. I’ll be back soon. Maybe switch to my fly and flasher set. I didn’t notice a ton of nets being dipped... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Me too! 18’ Tracker Targa. I have learned not to motor out if the waves force you to dial back your “get to my spot” speed. Inevitably you get to your spot and realize it is to dicey to manage your gear and if you can’t manage gear sure can’t manage a fish. I do fish solo so that plays into it too.

  10. Hey Double-D great post. I am finishing the installation of my Helix 8. What chart/card upgrades do you recommend beyond what comes out of the box. I fish Braddocks, I-Bay Conesus and Keuka... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Mine is upgraded with a planer mast running into front seat pedestal. Also have a pair of Canon Downriggers. I only run a 10lb ball as aluminum anchor points scare me. Topped off with a Fish Hawk. I typically fish solo so I am a smidge over-rigged. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Thanks! I do several 5am in and 5pm out climber stand hunts so packability and warmth matters. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Funny cause that is the pair I bought last year. Can’t get all the velcro stuck after two socks, high boot, long johns and insulated bibs. they are functional, but not “just right”. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
