  1. Right now the offshore bite is best with mostly steelhead. And your right, the Kings are stacked up on the east half of the lake.
  2. 45 had nothing and I mean absolutely nothing to do with the border being closed. It's because of C19 and a Global elitist named Trudeau who is punishing the entire outdoor industry in CA. You must be totally ignorant concerning politics. Study up and grow up.
  3. Plenty of walleye from 50' out to the border.
  4. I fish out of Wilson but it should be pretty close to the same out of Olcott. Head out to 70fow and start trolling. I have started with a West troll which is down current running mostly green spoons at 2.5 GPS speed, adjusting speed according to the bend in the diver poles and the angle of the downrigger cables. Troll in a zigzag pattern between 80fof and 125fow looking for bait and fish marks. They pretty much always there. My typical program is two riggers with free sliders and four DD set on 1.5 and 3.0. I set them back to fish over and under the temp break. You should see fish, bait and fleas that look like they're plastered against it. You will see big marks on the bottom which I figure are big Lakers or big Kings so I will drop a meat rig down there. Has worked sometimes but not always for me. If those fish are uncooperative I troll out to 200fow to 230fow. You may catch a ghost fish on your way and if you do mark the spot and work it a bit. The fish may only bite if you troll in the same direction. And the same goes if your getting marks and no bites change direction and go back through. This is just fishing 101 but it has worked well for us. The last day I fished was this past Thursday and we went 9/13 mostly teenage Kings a nice cohos and three very nice steelhead. Lost some screamers. Tight lines friend.
  5. For us the mid day bite was best. Thought Saturday chop helped but as you know it was slick calm Sunday and it didn't bother the fish. By the way I troll as close to 2.5 as possible and watch my rigger cables as I don't have a fish hawk. We tried 7c and 10c LC on inline boards since the riggers went firing but only caught one coho on the ten. Thanks For the info!
  6. Was fishing Wilson Sat and Sun also. Had very good fishing both days. Found the 48° water to cold for our liking although there was lots of bait and some big marks in 80'. So we trolled out and found 52° in about 230'. Soon had our first hookup and even though we didn't mark any fish or bait repeated north troll over the same mark resulted in a bite on almost pass. South troll did not work. Landed five Kings up to 18# and lost several more. Also landed eight steelhead with a few being biguns and all trout were released. Also four very nice cohos. About 25 bites over both days. All were caught in 230fow both days in the same spot on mostly green spoons DWSS, Stinger. With the biggest Kings coming on meat rigs about 55' down. Mostly a wire diver bite as the riggers slept until Sunday, that's when the steelhead started pouncing on the one we left out down 75'. Hoping to be back this weekend. Great weather and good fishing and friendship. I am blessed.
  7. Fished Thursday and Friday. Had good king bites but only a couple cohos. Lost way too many quality kings. Fished 80' to 100 fow. Plenty of marks a quite a few lookers. Boxed three Kings and a coho each day along with the several losses so in spite of the boat traffic you can get bit. The bite from daylight to 0800 was very good. Tight lines
  8. Not to butt in but I just fished our of Walnut yesterday and today for my first Erie trips of the year after fishing Lake Ontario for the last several weeks. Had to work for work for them in yesterdays big chop but we did get a three man limit. Today the lake started of much nicer but ended worse. The fishing was slow for us at the start but the NE wind kicked up around lunch and it got real rough but the fish turned on and it was another good day. If you fish there you may have to grind it out until they turn on. Some guys struggled to catch a fish. Lot of fish from little to large. Our biggest was 28" (1) and the smallest were several in the 7in. range . Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. Yes east of the bar same depth. 1/4 grown up Kings. One dandy steelhead and another nice one. Three nice coho several skipys and a few mystery bites. Been fishing the same marks since the week after Memorial Day. Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Have fished the past three weekends between Willson and the bar. Have been doing okay between 80 and 120. Lots of bait pods and what looks like smelt covering the bottom in many areas. Took one temp reading on my TD and got 45° down 55'. Most marks in that area although we caught some nice cohos on sliders up higher. Didn't fish long as the east winds had it roughed up Saturday morning and wired up 4 footers Sunday afternoon. Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I'll take them if they're still available.
  13. Not sure how Lake Michigan's biology is doing right now, but the lake produced some big fish last year including a couple 40# beasts.
  14. I'm of the opinion there may be too many walleye putting too much pressure on the bait. Screens like this were not unusual last year. Which was nice if you didn't want to troll. Kind of scary.lol
  15. I would contact the boat manufacturer.
  16. Bunks, rollers are a problem putting in and I think there's a bit of a saftey issue when hauling. I have a 19ft. Ebtide with rollers and a 25ft Wellcraft with bunks. I prefer the bunks. I wanted to add that when loading with rollers and by yourself it may require you to keep the motor engaged or the boat will roll back off the trailer.

  18. I think it's a cultural thing as your are drifting further away from the good things in life. Broken homes and electronic gadgets have taken their toll. We can only hope there's a turnaround.
  19. I was in there today also. With the throngs of salmon aficionados rubbing shoulders on the river I decided to punt the fishing. While talking to the employees found out that they haven't collected Coho eggs yet as there tuned to ripen at cooler temperatures. And as many of you know natural reproduction accounts for about 50% of the fish population. And they've had about 150 Atlantic's come through the raceways this year.
  20. Vision Quest is slamming them this morning. Somwhere within the range of Wilson.
  21. Fishing with Wet Net Fished with Matt Yablonsky (Wet Net) today at the Bar. Boated a bunch of nice Kings and lost nearly as many. Highlights of the day were two big Atlantic's that acted like blue marlin going absolutely ballistic before freeing themselves. Best fighting fish in fresh water. Slowed later in the morning and then the wind blew us off the lake. Great day!
