  1. May on the Bar is GREAT fishing. I fish out of Oz but we trailer out there early season because it's worth it in Early season. Some of the best fishing you'll see on that lake.

    Woukd you guys recommend mayniff niagra bar vs July deep water? Seems like alot of good bites happen around there in may and I'm pretty flexible on getting there and can prolly make both trips

  2. The end of July usually means deepwater fishing. With that being said I run one of two setups when its just me and one other guy:


    2 riggers and 4 divers(weather/current permitting)

    Or 2 riggers 2 divers and 1 chute copper.


    And i run a 25' sportcraft, I could run a more elaborate setup, but these just work. Dont overlook the stealth factor 4 riggers in the water is a big presence ESPECIALLY on a narrow beam.


    Long lines like copper are a must have in my opinion. So are flies and meat rigs. I'd wait until you're up there and buy what's hot. But It never hurts to have the classics, stud fly, hammer fly, crush glow spinny.


    I started with Penn Warfares on riggers and have since upgraded to Tekotas. Most guys running 20-30lb test and no fancy reel is needed with such strong line. I like light line with spoons, especially on those high sun crystal clear days, 12 and 15lb so that's where the better reels, and drags like a tekota comes in. I wouldnt be scared to run the 27s but the 17s are bit small.


    I also like a good reel with diver though considering the lack of stretch and therefore a lack of forgiveness.
