  1. Hi Bluegiller. Do these have line counters? Any idea of the ratio (1:1, 1:2, etc,)? I’ve been looking at getting the newer uni-trolls but haven’t been able to justify the expense. Do you know if the bases and swivels are the same as the electric mag-trolls? Sorry for all the questions. I’m headed to Olcott Monday and might be able to meet up with you then. Thanks, Chris Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  3. Does this have a built-in gas tank? Short or long shaft? I might be interested. Where are you located? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I’m interested in the Accudepth combos. Would the rods you have paired work as diver rods? Where are you located? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Nice video and catch! Were the fleas much of an issue? I’m going for the first time out of Olcott this Sunday/Monday and running 2 dipsy rods and a high line with a 4 oz torpedo weight. I’m considering swapping 30lb braid for 50 lb big game to try to fight the fleas. Any thoughts? If you have any tips for depth or patterns I’d really appreciate it. Small boat w/o riggers or temp sensor. I’ve got some gear coming in; flashers, spoons, flies, meat rigs. Just trying to figure out where/what to start with. Loved the report. Nice video editing too.

  6. Thanks again guys. I'm about to place an order with Fish USA and they assured me it would get in by Friday. I'm heading out Sunday afternoon to fish that evening and all of Monday. It looks like I'm going to run some 40lb mono to try to help with the fleas. It seems everyone is having a hard time with them this time of year. I'll have to pick up some herring as I roll in on Sunday for the meat rigs. Any go-to places near the public launch in Olcott for herring, supplies, etc? I won't have a chance to cure or brine the herring so I hope that's not a deal breaker. I think I've got a handle on how to rig things but I'm wondering what the norm is for running a spoon behind a diver? I was thinking 6 ft of 20 lb flouro to a duo-lock snap to allow changing spoons. Would 30lb be a safer bet this time of year? Looking forward to getting out there. Sunday/Monday is looking good for weather. At this rate I could have paid for a charter but at least I'll have the gear for the future. I might get into wire line for the divers down the road...
  7. Thanks for the advice guys. It looks like I'll get a handful of size 28 spoons, a couple of spin doctors or flashers, a few flies, and a few meat rigs. I would love to get a charter but I'm hoping to invest in a little gear and have the option of going again and in future years. I have a couple other questions - thanks for the patience... Any go-to flashers or spin doctors I should be looking at? Should I ditch the 30lb braid in favor of mono to deal with the fleas? Would Wilson or Olcott be a better choice for near-shore (walleye, perch) or around the harbor if the wind picks up and it's not feasible to stay out? Thanks again. I'll be sure to post a report after I get out.
  8. Hello All, I've appreciated reading your reports and info. I'm gearing up for my first time fishing Lake Ontario probably out of Olcott or Wilson later this month. I'm from AZ but will be in Chautauqua the next 6 weeks for work/family. I've only got my 14 ft. Whaler-type boat with a 30hp outboard but I regularly fish the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific NW with it so I have all the necessary safety gear and will be watching the weather closely. I've got a couple of dipsy rods with 30lb braid and some divers. Unfortunately I didn't pack any of my salmon gear as I didn't think it would be necessary. I'm trying to come up with a short list of gear to have some of the necessities to have a shot at some fish. So far I'm thinking of a variety of spoons; NBK, 42nd spoon, NK Mixed Veggie, etc. I'll probably run 20-30lb floro leaders, maybe pick up a flasher or two and some flies. I've got a few questions if any of you might have a few minutes to help out: Do you typically run a flasher in front of spoons on Lake Ontario? They do up in Washington but then they're smaller spoons. What size spoon is typical? What's a good leader length from the diver to the spoon? Will 30lb braid be a problem with the fleas? Should I be looking at a flea flicker line? Would it be worth running a high line with a banana sinker to get 3 lines in the water? Which port (Wilson, Olcott, other?) would be best to launch with a small boat? I can get back in a hurry if weather picks up but it would be nice if there was some protection in the harbor. Favorite tackle shop in Wilson or Olcott? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time to help. It looks like my windows are 7/15-16, 7/22-23, and 8/5-6. I'll be keeping my eye on the weather and hope to get out there. Thanks, Chris
