  1. Getting close to buying a mint condition center console that’s always been rack stored. I’d rather not bottom paint and I’m considering trailering. But in the meantime, does anyone rack store somewhere near one of the better salmon ports? Guessin I’ll find something on the Genessee but just in case I’m missing somewhere else. I’ll be coming up most weekends from Penn Yan area. Looking for recommendations. Thx. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Woke up to some bumps on Friday morning so waited on the lake to settle down a bit. Launched around Noon with a couple greenhorns and made our way to about 350. Found some bait and took a rip on a deep diver but came up empty. Then high diver w spoon fired with a nice steelie and got on some steady action. Flasher/stud fly 95 down on rigger took 14 & 20lb kings. High divers w spoons took 5 steelie bites and deep divers took some smaller (7/8lb) kings too. Had steady action and a happy crew. Went 3/5 on steel and 5/5 on kings. Clouds moved in around 5 and shut down out action. Called it a day. Saturday we woke to a calmer than expected lake so launched around 8am. (No trailers in the lot on a Saturday? wife asks if everyone knows something we don’t...) Figured to work the inside waters wind permitting. Setup 4/5 miles West of the Oak in 80 feet and worked out to 95. Took a 10lber on blue DW mag spoon on high diver 275 back. Then right out front we managed a double in some washing machine like conditions - 1 14er on deep diver w two face uv spin doctor n aqua/blue fly then high diver 225 back w mag blue dolphin DW hooked up and landed both. Second one was pushing 20. Ran jplugs deep to start but nothing doing. By then the wind machine really cranked up and shifted to west so we called it day and made a slow bee line back. No derby fish today but we’ll try again next weekend. Wifey did a great job steering and clearing then grabbing the 20 when it hit. Lucky to have a better half that is willing to stay and fish in 3-4s, control a boat, and still land a fish. Good luck if you go. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Working inside now west of Olcott 90 feet nothin yet. Worked deep early 350-400 twd west. 1 shaker. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Nice catch. Let’s see that toe! We should start a wound thread... Last week, last fish of the morning, a solid 18, one of the treble hooks in the jaw, easy peasy removal. Cept the spoon/hook fly outta the jaw and land point first in back of my left hand right in/on my vein! Pulled the hook and the red stuff starts flowing. Luckily a little pressure n she was good in 5-10mins. Hate to think what woulda happened if I’d gotten the barb! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. We started 630am in about 85-90 outta Mexico. Downtemped in 135 saw 49F 105 down? Something like that. Plotted a course to the deeps. Finally 1030 high 2 dipsey braid 250 back over 330 feet takes a hit get 18.5 for the wife. Went dead again for some time til stealth rigger 110-115 down took a pre-teen in 280 maybe. Couple more small fish on w/long release that was it til 2pm down off the Mohawk plant. Both on spoons. Getting me some Humble Pie tonight! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. These fit in tracks. Universal sorta fit for riggers. I’m running manual Penn 620 looking to add another pair to my setup. Anyone got one or two? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Wrights Landing had plenty parking around July 2-3rd the first time I fished there. Fyi for out of towners like me the inside of the breakwall (minus the actual launch area) is NOT a No Wake Zone. But...beware the clueless kayakers milling about the light house and outer breakwall/light. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Very few almost none at the Oak. Inside and out to about 325feet. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. FishnChef, call me back, tried to message you. I've got an 1850 Super Hawk too, I'd like to see some more of your setup if that's possible, too? I can see a little in this picture, but would love to chat, take those holders off your hands. Check ur messages for my number. Thanks bw
  10. I'm in Himrod, NY 14842 but will be passing thru Erie, PA on Sunday Aug 2 or Monday Aug 3. Can PayPal now and pickup then if works for you? I'll take 4 nice SGs...
  11. Sat afternoon shift had my father in law onboard for the first time. 2 bites, 2 matures, 13.5 & 18.5 both still swimming. Unlike the morning and Friday am/pm shifts, both came on the divers targeting 60-65 feet. First fish was in 220’, the 2nd larger and darker fish came in 320’ as we tracked on a path that produced big bites in deeper water for us last Saturday. Dick did well minus picture posing. He’s getting better. I call this first one, ‘Who needs a hug?’ Both fish on bright mag spoons with a crystallina type finish and honeycomb back. Unsure of brand. Came in a grab bag with sharp hooks. One darn near gave me an IV in back of the hand on Sat am. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Next in line for a couple SGs. I’m near Seneca Lake in NY fyi can pickup if nearby. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. With supply chain shortages I got one Penn Warfare 30LWLC from FishUSA. It’s larger than I realized for my 1000’ wire setup. But. I do need a reel for 300’ copper. Anyone know how much backing to run for a Warfare 30 with 300’ copper? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Sometimes I answer my own questions. Is that a bad sign? I found the nylon drag washers and nylon insulating washers at Fish307.com. About $30 total for 2 riggers worth shipped. I’ll report back with the results. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I pulled my Penns apart a couple weeks ago. It seems the drag washers are nylon. They seemed in OK shape but one of them was definitely giving up a few shavings. I cleaned all the washers in a very diluted Simple Green solution and reassembled. The Penns still dont work as smoothly as I’d like them. The weight kinda holds there then all a sudden goes racing down! I guess Ill go shopping for some replacement washers at some point. Anyone know a good place to find parts?
