    Awesome on that pic! Way to go it was so dang bouncy out there yesterday... I'm gonna look up those meat head rigs too. Thanks and great work! Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Got out solo from 3-6 tonight public launch at Sandy. I'm always reminded how awesome lake O can be and how much respect I need to pay her.. A mile from the launch I was only in 40 foot of water and the waves started turning white on top. The boat was bouncing all around and I was crawling north but I was determined to get to 100 feet. After forever I somehow got there. I only saw one other boat much further out. Only spoons today, I dropped a copper straight back and two dipsys on both sides. On about my third pass in rough water, my dipsy with the watermelon striker went off.. Somehow I managed to keep the fish out of the other lines.. I scrambled to get the net..waves were so big I almost fell... got the net stuck and quickly dropped to the floor, finally got it unhooked with my left hand and kept pressure on the fish with my right.. I really should have lost him since I must have bruised his face from stabbing at him three or four tries with the net.. When it was over the whole boat was a mess but I managed a selfie with this 9 lb steeley.. Lol that's my game face. Guess that made me 1 for 1 this afternoon with two nice fillets brining for the smoker. For record I marked many fish this afternoon from 100 to 150 and spotted a bunch of bait balls in the 130ft range. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. Probably a dozen boats out of Sandy already when I met my buddy at 6 am. Noticed right away waves were larger than I expected...The guy in this picture I know was a little sceptical about how our vessel would handle in the rollers. We made it to 100ft and set up 1 copper, and two dipsies . First fish came off bottom in 120ft on copper rig w blue and silver spoon.. Fish came off before we saw him though... Lip dragging we continued on. Ten minutes later, 120 ft depth, this 12 lb king took a watermelon stinger spoon about 75 feet down on our dipsy. Awesome high fives as we got this one in the boat! Guess that made us 1 for 2. Great trip. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Great pics from up in the big CA! I fish on the south shore near Rochester NY but I also use a smoker, big chief lure Jensen. Any possibility you might share your brine recipe? Or any tips to achieve that final color! I usually brine mine in one quarter cup salt and sugar overnight... Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Thanks for kind words! To get the numbers you call sheriff office, they send inspector out to look it over and issue boat identification numbers. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  13. Well you asked for it so here goes... I Built this boat in 2014. Took six months to complete and launch. Studied wooden boat magazine and you tube for a while and decided to try it for myself. Dimensions:14' 1/2 ft length, 6 foot beam. Five ribbings for skeleton frame constructed of oak. Chines and gunwales of maple. Transom of oak. Plywood from Lowe's 3/8". Covered in six ounces of fibreglass wet thoroughly with epoxy resin. All joints are screwed and glued w epoxy and stainless fasteners. Wood, fasteners, epoxy resin,and cloth all totalled around $800. The greater expenses really became the trailer and new Merc 9.9 which totalled another $3300. Still having launched this boat nearly a hundred voyages, the experiences and time have been completely worthwhile. Someday when I get tired of repairing it's aging hull, probably have a campfire and build a better one! Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  15. So my buddy and I took my plywood boat out of Sandy early. My buddy pulled this nice 4.5 brown at 715 am in 58 feet of water. Took him on a watermelon striker spoon down 50 ft on a dipsy.. Around 930 the down rigger went off and this nice 8lb Steeley put on a great acrobatic show before finally finding our net. The trout was landed in 70 ft of water 50ft down. That made us 2 for 2.Not bad for two guys running two or maybe three lines most Of The morning! We marked huge bait balls and many fish near them in the 50-60 foot range.
