  1. Tenth trip to Oswego this year . Great day to be on water . Started at 350 and zigzaged to 550 from 7 to 11. A couple releases and lots of bait but nothing in boat. Motored in on 6 inch waves for a great end to season . I've had better seasons for catching fish , but it's good to just get on the lake with my little 17 footer. Hope to be back on the water in May.
  2. I've been running Berkley Big game in 30lb test . seems to work on fleas . 40 lb may be better on a calm day .I just check my dipseys more often if on calm water . Waves cut fleas down quite alot .
  3. I ended up ordering a 7 strand from fishusa . Thought it might be better for cutting fleas .Thanks for the info .
  4. Where did you get the fish hawk clamp for your down rigger boom ? Mines in the boat and with long booms , it's always stuttering because the cable is not long enough .
  5. Thanks , I can't remember the brand I originally had on the reel or the lb test
  6. I need to replace the wire on my dipsey rod . Any info on what to replace it with would be helpfull since there seems to be alot of different wire out on the market .Thanks for any replies.
  7. Fished 6-12 on wavy lake with little boat . 100 to 400 and all water put about a foot of fleas on my 12lb test per hour .Next trip the heavy line and big reels will be on boat. Last release the fleas clogged the guides and before I noticed the gears broke in reel and lost fish. By the way , that was out of Oswego.
  8. Left home at 1:30am - on water at 5:30 am. Motored to Ford Shoals and trolled 100 to 450 till noon . 30,40,50,& 60 feet with all sorts of stingers . No hits! Nice boat ride again .Home by 4:30.
  9. Fished 6 to 12 am .N -S troll from 50 to 100 from college to Alcan with a brown and a Laker by 7am . After a good start the lake went empty . no more hits and very little on screen except some lakers on bottom . lines down 20 , 30 , 40 ,&50. Nice day for boating.
  10. Mike , Your info worked today . 3 for 4 today . one missed was when we had a double . Ended at noon with a ripped off spoon . Thanks again for the starting point .30-40 over50 to 60 .all around 15 lbs .
  11. Thanks for the depth info . Got skunked the last two weeks on browns so I planned on looking for silver this week . Glad to see the new boat's getting stunk up with some nice fish !
  12. Is the dock that's in one of the 2 short floating docks or the one that has the pump station behind the bathroom that's in all year? Their facebook page said a dock was in but didn't say which one . Thanks
  13. Thanks ,I was hoping closed means like last year , docks out with no services .
  14. Planning to start coming up in a couple of weeks . Any info on whether launch docks are going in soon or even if launching will be possible ? Last year I started at Fairhaven but Oz has less things in the water to hit when launching .
  15. Since I don't see local news , will the launch be usable this April ?
  16. Mike, The new boat looks great . Makes mine look even smaller than it used to . Ended the season Wed. with a 27 pounder out at 400 ft . See you on the hard water this winter .
  17. Mike . I agree with Logger Gen , I had Okuma on the dipsey rod for 3 years and just threw one away since the bearings went out just reeling in the dipsey.
  18. We ran green ff all am with no hits .2.5 to 2.9 mph . maybe to slow?
  19. Fished 6 to 12 , 1 3lb salmon on a line I was checking .trolled ff and spoons with no releases . 350 to 550 down 105 , 115 ,& 125 .Nice day but no marks would co-operate.
  20. Went east Thursday 150 to 450 . 6am to noon . Same thing , 1 shaker when checking a line and no releases .tried 8 spoons and 4 different flies fast and slow with no luck . Saw some nice marks but no takers .
  21. Mike , In the 80's point Breeze was 5 miles from my house . We caught 30 - 35 pounders on standard dipsey's out of my 14ft trihull . Fishing out of Oak Orchard has always been great .
  22. Tried out the new X2 Fishhawk today. Worked great . Fished 350 to 500 .Temp down 40 feet was 48 . Caught 2 lakers , 2 steelhead , and a 15 lb salmon by 9am . Nice morning and no waves All on an Alewive Stinger .
  23. I'm hoping 48 hours of west wind wakes up the fish on the eastern end of the lake for next week .
