  1. PhD thesis in walleye trolling right there.
  2. If you are set up to troll and have a fish finder I would start by trolling sticks and harnesses in 25 to 40 feet of water. Troll east and look for marks on your screen. If you find some stay on them. I haven't been to Oneida this summer but usually caught eyes fishing the drop off on the north shore just east of Cleveland dock. I like to jig with bucktail jig with a night crawler. Good luck. Hopefully you get some. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  4. Congrats on a great fish BassMrs.Ster. This has been a very enjoyable thread to read. I have enjoyed all the comments from great fishermen thanking other great fishermen for all they have learned. I have learned so much from being on this forum and I am still slowly coming up the curve. Without reading Kevin's helpful posts over the last 6 or 7 years I would have never experienced catching a few of those strong SLR eyes. Lyk2fish has helped more than he knows in my quest to finally get an Owasco eye (then a second one) a couple weeks ago. Justin clued me into the enjoyment of jigging eyes in general and I got one on I-bay and SLR that way. Tomorrow I am off to Lake Erie for some crawler harness bottom bouncing. Ah yes,such a great fish and sport!
  5. Thanks for the explanation. I just looked it up and saw some good diagrams showing them.
  6. Nice rainbow. What is a cheater? Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thanks for the info. We are out of your range. Usually hunt in Alleghany, Yates or Ontario counties.
  8. Very nice. Good luck. Are you a DEC registered tracker? If so what territory do you cover? Just in case I lose a deer 🦌.
  9. What percentage coyote is he? Interesting mix. Probably helps tracking deer.
  10. Very nice rainbow. Good luck with your new boat. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Very nice fish guys. That sure is a dark colored walleye Nautitroller, a beauty. My week of fishing ended Sunday evening. Caught a couple lakers and one small rainbow. Could have caught more but had to get in to cook dinner. I think I saw you on the water Sunday afternoon Lyk2fish. Maroon colored pontoon, I waved and you waved back if it was you. Lots of fun on our family week at the lake. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. My dipsy rods are Cabelas 9 ft, DepthMaster, DD (dipsy diver) Trolling Series. They are reasonably priced and have held up well. I matched them with the Cabelas DepthMaster III (DM III 15) line counter reels. I like them. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Awesome! Congratulations. I'll say it was bumpy. When we left this morning around 10 am I motored north from just above Burtis Point. Some of the waves were very big. I was happy to get to the outlet. Must have been fun fishing in that. I think I saw you tied up at the launch? Nice walleye. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Like Joe Dimaggio's 56 game hit streak... all streaks eventually must come to an end. I am sure you will be back on them next time out.
  15. Nice walleyes Johnnywalleye. You're living up to your nickname! Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Hi long timer... Pretty big waves and wind today. No trout yet but hopefully we'll get out next few days. Surface temp between 73 and 74 yesterday. Not sure what depth the cline is. Only going on Lyk2fish's general input. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Thanks Justin. I haven't tried the TDD's yet but plan to. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Great morning. Must have been exciting to double on the eyes in same net. Thanks for sharing. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Hard to believe but after taking yesterday off for some family boating and swimming fun we got back out today 9/1 from 3:30 till 6 pm. Trolling again our luck continued... had only 1 strike but we landed another walleye. 24 inches and it made our day. Couldn't believe it. A bit rough out there at times. Waves were very close together, we took several over the bow making things interesting. Tomorrow not looking good. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. I think they spawn in Owasco... some I have seen in recent pictures looked short enough to be natural but I do not know for sure. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Thanks Devo, she was 24 inches, no scale handy but guessing somewhere between 4 to 5 pounds. Not close to some of my Erie and SLR fish or my one and only eye out of Ibay but a special first eye on Owasco Lake. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Holy mackerel nice eyes.
  23. Thanks Lyk2fish. Special fish for me on this lake. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
