  1. pretty similar west except no bait.... fished evening out of Olcott, marked fish off and on but never once found bait, lost 1. could have been less waves but the bottom did not look like the teeth of a saw blade on the fishfinder so wasn't too bad
  2. Agree often forecasting sucks Olcott Webcam: https://www.olcottrentals.com/en/786020/marina-webcam - eventually zooms past break wall, that view and view of break wall are useful NOAA is better than nothing as well: https://www.glerl.noaa.gov//res/glcfs/glcfs.php?lake=o&ext=wv&type=F&hr=01
  3. Great to hear your getting back to work, currently furloughed myself and it is not cool. Dunkin commercial takes me back
  4. I definitely suggest planer boards for leadcore, copper and flat lining sticks or spoon with a split shot etc in early season. Not for dipsys but for sure something to have in the arsenal, there are days weighted lines off boards kill compared to dipsy or riggers. I built my boards using cedar and plans I found on this site, if you want the plans PM me and I will find them
  5. Spring kings been on fire out of Olcott. On Saturday I cruised solo almost to Wilson and zig zagged east with the wind towards the launch between 50 and 90 FOW, 6 for 9, two lost fish came on double hookups. Shallow diver green and green glow Bayrats way back or off boards killing it for sure. Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. No money, there is a sign on the door, stating facilities closed but launches are open free of charge and they will re open other facilities, including the office may 1 subject to change. They had a number up if your looking for a slip. If u need the number I can grab it next time I am there, live near the launch and currently furloughed so planning to be there often as possible when the waves cooperate Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. left the house about 2 so guessing 3 ish? Was not out long before the bite started
  8. Auto inflating belt way to go, as often as not I will forget it is there until I sit in the truck
  9. Shakedown lead to a few hours of fishing, the goose egg at the launch was a bit ominous but boat ran fine. East troll between 18 and 28 FOW, barely past Krull Park hooked a nice king and while fighting it hooked into another. 3 for 5, 2 nice kings and a small bow, lost 2 nice ones, guessing one was foul hooked, nearly spooled me. Green Bayrat shallow diver 300 ft back and dark green NBK spoon with gold back, leadcore off boards 1.5 colors out. All the fish were feisty per usual spring fish and returned to fight another day. Day was beautiful and it was real nice being out.
  10. Me too! Check me out on left, this is from late 80s.... My buddy was pissed, we filled our punch cards, I caught the king I was holding, 2 out of 3 of the silvers my buddy was holding and the cabezon in his other hand as well.... I have been a mile out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca (before cell phones) stopped to fiddle with something and realized I had taken on a LOT of water.... FORGOT PLUG... Brought her up to plane (thank goodness she got there) and after it drained put the plug in from the inside, scared the crap out of me.
  11. Totally agree. The part about mouths hardening I was unaware of so from now on anytime after mid August if I lose a fish that is my new excuse
  12. Not sure about that area but I launch out of Olcott and last few times I have been out current has been strong. Having to do almost 5mph SOG to get 2.5 at the ball depending on direction. Fish hawk worth its weight in gold but did not have on my old boat so I would watch blowback angle on rigger lines and listen as they will sort of howl or groan when going to fast. Find the bait and keep going back over it that way you are changing directions a lot and you can get a feel for the current and adjust accordingly
  13. Our boy Waffles, if I so much as touch the boat he goes ballistic, high pitched yipping and tapping his front paws on the floor really fast.
  14. Ran into a couple of small kings yesterday West of Olcott in 180 FOW. Both will live to fight another day, never left the water.
  15. Thanks for the report. Taking my son out tomorrow for the 1st time in many years.... Teen angst finally wearing off, hoping we do well.
