  1. I know. I should have gone with my gut and headed west right off the bat.
  2. My buddy and I are coming up to Olcott tomorrow afternoon and will be fishing until Sunday afternoon. I prefer to fish with at least 3 to set lines, net fish, bring in fish etc. So I have room on my boat for 1 person. I have a 27ft Pro-Line walk around. If anyone is interested in going send me a message.
  3. Seems like the fish are moving a little deeper. I'll be back up this Friday. If you're there let me know and we can communicate and share info.
  4. We had 8 hookups by 9am just west of Olcott in 90 to 110 fow then the fish just disappeared. Was thinking they might have gone to deeper water but I was having a little engine trouble and didn't want to get too far from the marina. Carbon 14 took 3 fish early before the sun got higher in the sky and we got 3 off of a meat rig set on the downrigger at 65ft. Here are a few pics. Check out the little guy that hit a spoon as big as he is. Lol
  5. I'll be out this morning. Plan on fishing till around 1. Going to try between Olcott and Wilson.
  6. Yeah, we rode it out. Spent the day between the tower and the power plant. 85 to 105fow. We boated 10 kings and lost 4. A lot of small ones, only kept 4.
  7. I'm coming up to Olcott/Newfane marina tomorrow afternoon and fishing until Sunday afternoon. I just want to throw this out there. I'm looking for some guys who might want to communicate during those days on the water. I think I'm the perfect partner, lol. I don't enter tournaments, I don't eat salmon so I only keep a few for friends that request some. It's a big lake and its difficult to cover by yourself. Especially when you only get out 3 or 4 weekends a year. I have no problem letting someone know where I am, what I'm seeing on my graph and what I'm catching during the day. I'm looking to team up with some guys who feel the same way. Let me know by responding here. Thanks...
  8. I fished out of Olcott this weekend. Saturday we fished from the power plant east all day from 35fow out. I even ran out to 400fow just for the heck of it, had a nice king on right away out there but lost it 15ft from the side of the boat. Sunday got a tip to try the bar so we ran down there. I have never seen so many huge bait balls in my life!! All morning my screen was covered in bait with nice arcs all around. 110 to 130fow had 3 quick hookups and then things just shut down. Managed a nice Laker at about 1:30 PM but that was it. All total in 2 days we could only muster 4 kings, 1 lake trout and 5 misses. I'll be back up next weekend to try again. I'm still learning this craft as this is only my 2nd year fishing for salmon but I am addicted. What a rush when that rod goes off!! I'll just keep trying, learning from successes and mistakes. The experience is what it's all about...
  9. Wow, that's awesome! Cant wait to get there tomorrow afternoon!! Thanks for the post...
  10. I don't fish the bar either, way too many boats. Prefer to get away from the packs and find pockets of fish. May not catch as many fish but it is way more relaxing and enjoyable.
  11. Ditto Eyecatcher. I live in New Castle Pa so I really appreciate the guys on this forum that are willing to share info. Great bunch of guys on this forum!!
  12. Awesome looking fish!! Congratulations. Can't wait to get up there on the 17th.
  13. Thanks, just ordered 4 of those releases and will give them a try this spring. I use tru trips behind my boards for depth instead of leadcore or copper. I like them because you don't have to put out (and then have to reel back in) 400ft of line to get your bait down to where you want it.
