    Made my first trip to Oswego Sunday. We spent the night and hit the lake early Monday morning. Motored west a few miles and set up for Browns. 2 minutes after setting up all 6 lines, one goes off. My son pulls in a medium, chunky Brown on a Purple Clown. Fished the area for 2 hours with no further hits. Turned out to deeper water and set up for Kings. A few minutes after getting set, the downrigger goes off 40’ down in 100FOW. Pulled in a small king on a UV Perch spoon. Trolled the next 4 hours in front of Oswego in all depths with no hits. Finally, got a hit halfway between the mouth of the Oswego and the Nine Mile plant. Pulled in a nice 5 or so pound King on a black and white UV in 115fow down 75 feet. Fished to 5 o’clock with no other takers. The lake was beautiful to be on but the fish were not cooperating. Is was great to be back in Oswego though. Had a great dinner at a local restaurant and headed home this morning. I’m looking forward for things to come. It’s just warming up! 



  2. yes. heavier type rods are best used with large dipsys with twilly tip to prevent wire from cutting thru eye. looks like a big coil spring. okuma has a nice copper line rod that I use for wire dipsys with twiily tip. not real expensive either. you might want to to look at the new flat metal dipsys; no 5 size. very easy to retrieve. using meat rigs in the fall the plastic heads are relatively inexpensive thru janns net craft. be sure to coat with clear coat as the paint peels easily.

  3. downriggers should nnot be a problem depending on the structure of the boat. had them on my 16 foot . use flashers with meat head rig in summer . planer boards work early season and summer if looking for steelhead.long lines 100 ft . riule of thumb for dipsy divers at 3 setting is 1/3 od distance back for approximate depth using wire line.
