  1. Um.... so if thats a 4 foot 40lb king then that lady is 6'5 and her fingers are bionic. Why can't the Canadians just admit they politely fib about everything? My buddy from Mississauga said the other day he LIKED paying 60% income tax because the roads are in such good shape. What? Wha? 40kb kings my asss
  2. A QUAD !!!! That mustve been complete mayhem. Hilarious. Nice job thx for the report.
  3. I respectfully disagree w Captain Carl, as two charters will probably cost you more than your entire cottage rental for the week. On top of that, just floating, relaxing, swimming, tubing the kids etc is a huge part of boating. If you don't bring your Grady you're going to regret it. (Just make sure those trailer bearings are good before you roll out!) ..... one other thing I forgot to mention in my previous post, that blue plastic barrel system works really well, you'd only need two. We put them on the docks and fill em with water from the hose (or bring a little submersible pump) and the weight keeps the wave action from getting under the docks and lifting them, which can crush the docks in a bad blow. If they arent using any barrels to prevent this (they should be) you can find them for $15 each on craigslist near Sodus. The apple industry uses tons of them and they're everywhere. Go get a pair, fill em to the top and position them just over the edge of the dock about 10 feet apart. They will keep your boat off just fine. Tie to the cleats as u normally would even though they're underwater it doesnt matter. We've been using our docks all summer this way. P.s. if you dont have a pump just bring a jigsaw and cut the entire top off the barrels, get the kids a bucket and 50 scoops later she's all filled up and weighs 400 lbs. Just be sure to get the barrel in position as u add the water because once they're filled you can't move em!
  4. You can still tie to a submerged dock if you use the wind to keep the boat off, and set an anchor off the other side to keep it off the dock. If they have blue barrels filled with water on the dock (lots of us do right now) slide a few of the barrels over so they're hanging off the edge of the dock a little and they work nicely to keep the boat away from the dock. Keep an eye on the winds and forecast of course, (we pull the boats in the evening if the wind is kicking up) but the breeze usually quiets down at night, you won't have to pull em every night. Also, make sure your anchor is set well and there's plenty of scope. When you go out just tie a boat cushion to the anchor rope as a marker and snag it with the boat hook when u come back in. Some people use 2 anchors, one stern one bow. It works!
  5. Going to be targeting lakers in the 80-120 range tmrw, have a few cowbells w peanut fly, wondering if there are any other rigs/lures you guys would recommend I try. Any thoughts appreciated...

  7. Heard u were catchin a lot yesterday. My brother said every time he went by you guys it seemed like u had a fish on. Were you running straight stickbaits off your planerboards early?
  8. Noticed in most pics everyone has treble hooks on the spoons. Better than a single hook?
  9. Triples on kings had to be hilarous. Talk about mayhem. We were wondering if having a fish on excites the other fish to hit. Do the odds of another hit increase when you're fighting one already?
  10. So are the 4 year old kings good eating? Seems like you'd want the younger ones for the table....
  11. The captain was a real douchebag, said I had to throw it back. I'm never speaking to THAT guy again.
  12. Awesome. We went a little west out of the Genny this afternoon and had a great time, went 6 for 8 with my son getting his first big Lake Ontario fish (fat ol' laker). 200 copper was working, everything hit spoons. We were hittin em at 40-65 over 75-95 deep. Caught the world's smallest king, this little dude was fearless, I'm assuming he was just stocked this spring? He was a foot long.
  13. Not sure why they close a launch like that one. Not ideal but still usable.
  14. Funny post. Man I can relate. Yesterday we were laughing out loud in front of the Genny as these guideboats (most notably a boat named Candy) were fighting at least one fish every time we passed them, and here we are in the same water, trolling the same speed, presumably running the same lures, and getting skunked. Actually we landed two beautiful kings including my nephews first one ever, but your post hit home. Thats why I love this site and how helpful the ninja fisherman are to those of us who dont know what we're doing out there.
  15. And all this flooding in a year that's basically normal rainfall. New York is getting screwed so bad with plan 2014, this is a joke. They said 2 inches higher than normal was all we'd see, they meant 2 feet. I understand the record rainfall two years ago was at fault, but this has gone too far.
  16. Was also down there Saturday afternoon. Launch wasn't closed, as long as you have two people or solo you'd be ok if it's calm. Remember the levels move a lot based on wind so the dry dock you see in paprman's pic could change quickly so bring boots. Worst case you could head west and use the launch next to port of rochester, but you'll be fine.
  17. We didn't make it out, the wind was humming pretty good, didn't want to scare the girls. Going to wait for another day after school this week when it's not so rough. I'm reading it's tougher to find fish in the east winds? Seems to be a lot that in the forecast.
  18. I say fishing 4 or 5 times a year is MORE incentive to get a FH. You dont have the time to monkey around guessing, you need the data stat. Get one. If it doesnt prove itself worthy then sell it.
  19. Taking out two girls who have never caught a fish but are very excited to land a big one. The 11 year old just drew me a picture of her hoisting a nice sized fish that said "I can't wait to catch my first big fish". (so far her career has been limited to gobies, rockies and one little largemouth) Thanks for the pressure kid. I have two riggers and two planer boards, a surface temp reader and a new fishfinder. We'll be going after school Friday which hopefully will have a south wind and not the east they're forecasting for tomorrow. My question for you experienced guys: if you had to guarantee TWO decent fish in an afternoon going out of Roch, how would you do it? Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks
