    Olcott 6/16

    Thanks, glad you got some too. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Your wife can actually get up early enough so you are setting lines at 6:15? Unheard of. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yes thanks for sharing. Good to know about the smaller spoons! Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Fished from 0700 to Noon. Went 4 for 6. Kept 3 fish. Threw one small Coho back. Kept two Kings about 13 and 15 lbs. Kept one Steelhead about 8 lbs. Lost two nice fish. I fished between Harbor and Smoke Stack. Caught fish from 150-225 FOW. Did not mark ANY BAIT at all. Only marked a few fish in 140 FOW that looked to be cohos down about 50. Spoons caught a couple, but the stud fly and 6" spin doctor (white) was working best. I needed one more for the box, at 11 am, and I was in 200 FOW, and things had gotten slow. So I decided to haul everything in and I went out to deep water. Usually I would have wrapped up and went home, satisfied with my 2 fish, but I wondered what was out there in the deep water. So I went out to 375 FOW, 5 miles straight out from piers. Within 10 minutes had a big hit on the diver, 180 back, the stud fly rig. Landed a nice king, second of the day, and that was my limit. Water temp was 62 surface, in the 200 FOW range it was 52 approx down at the ball as I recall. Out in the 375, I found 42 down 100, about 46 down about 80. Good Luck out there, and please make a report, good or bad. Thanks. Oh, BTW, the Niagara Marine Patrol safety checked my boat when I came in.

    Church TX-44 vs Offshore SST Pro Mag

    I have the text 44, works good, but for long coppers get the yellow bird extra large. It's 12 inches. Works better for me with high drag stuff. Also, change the clip to a Sam's pro release. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I was very frustrated with the clips on my inline boards. They will not hold braid. So, I replaced them with Sam's pro releases. $10 each, worth every penny. See pictures. No more problems. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Yakima Flashers

    I attach it 6 inches behind the ball. Then I run a spoon off the release, right above, and only 4 feet back. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Oh, use an Albright knot to tie them all together. Easy and very strong. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I will agree with wire to the dipseys, no prob with fleas. And for riggers I run braid, with a 30 foot floro leader, and if necessary I switch to sea flea or 30# mono. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Hydraulic fittings

    Jay is right. When t installed my lowrance autopilot interfaced to my old Grady White's steering pump, the fittings that came with the unit would not work. Went too hydraulic shops, lowrs, Hector's, nothing. I went to West Marine in Buffalo and they had what I needed. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Lost items at Wilson cleaning station

    Bummer. Once I left my new cooler at my Mom and Dad's in PA. About 2 months later I was down there, and I asked Dad about my cooler and Dad said he sold it at his yard sale for $10! He didn't know whose it was. But he said don't worry, Uncle Ronny bought it (his brother). Would you believe my Mom called my Uncle and he would not return my $60 cooler! He said he bought it fair and square! I lost all respect for him right there. Moral of the story is, I doubt you'll ever see it again.
  14. I was on Erie Saturday, and I have never seen cottonwood so bad. Yes, it is worse than fleas!. Very hard to get off the line, and stops you reeling just like fleas. Harder to remove than fleas. I also worry about my engine getting clogged up with them. Must be bad on the cooling orifices. Hopefully LO will be clear of them.
  15. Hope so, I'm out of Walleye!
