  1. We went out to 375 fow. Trolled for an hour, turned north until we hit about 450. Nothing. Pulled up, went in 400. Set down again, took an 14 lb king, my nephew's first. Wondered if they were in shallow so we went in to 250 and two smaller Kings. 7 pm by then so we had to quit. Glad they were able to get a few because I thought we were going to be skunked after 2 hours of nothing. Still wondering what I should have done to get into them better, but that's fishing.

  2. Going today for first time in 2 weeks. Taking two folks who never fished. Last time out we fished 400 FOW. But saw fish on screen in 80 to 100. Maybe staging now? To be honest I have had ZERO luck on staging fish. So, can I still go out deep and get the younger salmon? Or are the shallow fish biting? Thanks. I will post a report as always. Nobody on the boat is tournament fishing. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    web site

    My phone app (droid) has been very slow last month or so. Also for the LEU site. It's probably my phone, but this is a recent issue, do I don't know. Also, on my home computer, again, a problem only starting the last couple months, when I type comments it is very sketchy, doesn't register the key strokes. Have to keep clicking the mouse back on the text box, and restriking keys again and again. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Top 3 atommik flies

    Yes, the site's labeling is confusing. Also, when I receive my flies, all they have is a number, so I have no idea what they are. Frankly, I don't want to go back online to find out when I have the fly right in hand, and all I have is a number that means nothing. On the other hand, I always end up with flies and lures out of the package and I have no idea what they are anyways, do I guess it doesn't matter!

    Wilson 7/29

    We fished off Olcott towards Wilson 7/23 to 7/29. Had a real good week. We spent all our time from 350 to 500 FOW. Best was about 400 to 440 for us. Temps and currents were crazy all week. There some fish inside at 80 to 100 fow in that warm water, we discovered on our last day. But we didn't fish them. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. 7/23, fishing was great in 350-380 FOW. Got 5 beauties. Went back today, same place and fishing was slow. Landed 2 kings, 2 Steel, but lost about 8 fish today. Could not hold them. Water temps today were weird....seemed warm out where we were. surface 69, and way down at 80 or 90 was 50-55 as I recall. Back at it tomorrow.

    Olcott- is a temp dock available?

    I called the marina and they said for a Boat my size 22ft, a temp dock would be no problem if we need to get off the lake. I called 778 5462. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Olcott- is a temp dock available?

    Thanks. I picked the wrong week for my friend to come from Idaho to fish, but we'll be fishing in the rain dodging thunderstorm's. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Autopilot

    Best thing I ever Bought was an autopilot! Had a raymarine st 1000 tiller autopilot I made to work on my old boat with push pull steering, less than $300! worked perfectly. There is a thread under this old boat. Now with my "new" boat with hydraulic steering I bought the lowrance outboard AP and it works great! it costs $999. But you need and HDS 3 Fissfinder (maybe an HDS 2 with the right software) to control it.

    Auotpilot

    It may not be workable with hyd steering. Probably not. Mine had a push pull cable I had to disconnect, then connect the AP. It worked great, gave me heading steering which is all I needed. For $200 some bucks, couldn't beat it. Now I have a different boat, got last summer, with hyd steering. I got the Lowrance Outboard AP for it. Love it. But way more money at $1000. Plus you need an HDS 3, or maybe a HDS 2 with correct software. I worry the Fishfinder will go out, then I have no AP control. From what I hear the Lowrance are throw aways when they fail, no repairs. But, it works flawlessly. so far. I searched Raymarine ST 1000 in this old baot. 3rd page I think. here is link if it works:
  11. thanks for the tips. Unfortunately, looks like I will have no choice but to fish an east wind component while my friend is here., at least some of the days. Looks like out of olcott, sat and sunday are already no-goes.

    Auotpilot

    I put a raymarine tiller steer autopilot when I had my 17 foot caravelle, it worked great. I forget what it cost but it was around $275 or 300. I made a post on this site with a video. You have to make a bracket. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Not good to hear. I just bought one. Drag seemed weak, or not much adjustment, so I made it a 5 color Walleye rod. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
