  1. I was going through my spoons today. I have spoons from DW, Michigan stinger, Moonshine but I took a liking to the Silver streak spoons. Especially in the spring. Did good on the mag spoons. But my question is there speed tolerance of the regular size spoons. They seem lite for a higher speed troll. Thanks Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I run wire on all over mine. I use slide divers and love them. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Here is a shot of from Google maps. I think they took them out at some point last year but with no ice you might be ok. I haven't had a chance to get down there. Seems every chance I get it either 30+ mph winds or its muddy Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I had bought one last year and it had worked good for us. Well until I had I mishap with my wire on the dive during the derby. Funny thing is that it had jumped out of the water like a steelhead would. Maybe just to laugh at us. I think it just gives it a little different roll. Whether or not that comes into play or not remains to be seen. I pick up a couple at the show so time will tell Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. This was my 3rd year doing the Salmon School. They did a great job once again. There was alot of info they gave and at time funny. It was great that it was more for the smaller boat guys. Some of tactics that when fishing get tougher that I know I forget about doing. I have come to realize that you never stop learning. Capt Pete said it best what this school is all about. You come back to the dock with only a couple and say the fish weren't biting today. The right behind you someone comes in with in cooler full. You start asking yourself why did I only get a couple ? What was I doing wrong ? Was I even fishing in the right spot ? That's where the salmon school helps. I appreciate everything you guys do for everyone.

  6. That's awesome. Nice fish. Love the color on the 1st pic Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I run 4 divers. Black for low, green for high divers. I have green reflective scale tape on the high diver. For some reason the steelhead seem to like it. Usually I'll start running flies or meat on the low diver and spoons on the high till I see what they want. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. With wire and no weight out 210' I believe I should be in the 75' range. I was around 40'. That was on setting 3. I have yet to use the weight yet. But from what someone at slide diver said it should be 2.5:1 ratio with the weight. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. On a small boat I believe the slide diver is more of a necessity. It is so much easier to net the fish. Especially when running meat off them. I would advise getting the weight kit for them. Toward the end of the season I bought a fishhawk TD. Needless to say I was nowhere near where I thought I was. If u happen to be going to the Niagara fishing expo slid diver will be there Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. The one thing I would say is don't be dead set on just fishing the bar. While the bar can be awesome Wilson and Olcott can be just as good. Last year the water on the bar was ice cold and the fishing wasn't that great while Wilson was on fire. I did a couple charters during the spring and summer LOC. He was out of wilson and I asked about the bar and I was told that he hadn't had a need to go up there. Just my 2 cents for whatever it's worth Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. As long as it has a good backbone u should be ok. On the charters I have been on I believe they were just med rods. I like my med-heavy rods. For me it's more about the just in case moments. They are some people the have hook into a musky down there. When u are drifting u want your line in as much of a 90° as u can and the weight just ticking along the bottom.

  12. We use the same rod and reel we use to cast for bass and pike. I like a 7' med or med-heavy rod with fast action. As far as reels go it really personal preference. I personally like the bait casting reels I find it easier to bring the weight up and down with the depths. We usually are using 2 or 3 oz weights depending what part of the river are fishing. The qwikfish do work but it seems that the maglips have worked better of late. The best piece of advice I can give you is do a charter and/or go the the fishing expo and do 1 of the seminars for the lower river. I can tell you that it is well worth the money. I have done a few. In between the charters and Salmon School the last few yrs my learning curve got a whole lot smaller. With that being said you are always learning things. I can tell you that you are in the right place for help. Best group of guys that aren't going to bs you. Good luck Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I love the slide diver. I run the wire to a very short piece of braid the attach 30' of 30# big game to the barrel swivel. After the swivel I just use a 2' leader of fluorocarbon. It makes things alot easier when running meat rigs. If that's th he way u decide to go I would also get the weight kit they sell for it. U will have to use a lot less line to get where u want to be Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Not local but I've had good luck with Empire Covers. I think I had paid $225 for mine. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
