  1. Ive never jigged for salmon, but I'll give it a try. I planned on a 6 rod spread. Riggers with high and low dipseys
  2. I want to take a trip to the bar in the spring. Never been and all I hear about it is its a bucket list trip. Looking for info on launches, depth, baits etc. I have a 18 ft aluminum I troll all summer with out of bear creek. Ill be driving from just east of Rochester. Thank you Dave
  3. Looking for a place to get 8 reels rewound with 20 pound mono in the Rochester area.... Ty Dave
  4. I fished lake superior for lake trout a couple months ago. The food quality of the lakers in superior is far better than onatrio. I guess the colder water and food sources makes all the difference. We caught steelhead and lakers and could not tell the difference in color or taste of meat. That being said, I believe smoked lake trout is as good as any other smoked lake fish coming out of lake ontario.
  5. 630 first rod in, UV hulk Mag 50 down in 100ft. 635....fish on while setting second rod. 18 pound female. Moved on to 50 ft after an hour of blank screen screens. 15 minutes double on green meat rig down 30 and nbk on 5 color. That is all
  6. Its what I feel like the day after eating the Bill's Mafia sauce covered wings washed down with a Genny Light...its a different kind of screamer
  7. Left at 330 straight to 200. Blankety blank blank screens. 50 degrees was down 50ft. Moved headed NE, nadda. Moved in to 115...holy crap. 400 copper with a 11in silver paddle and meat head takes a rip, dipsey out 220 with green meat takes a rip. Get those rest and 300Cu with C14 gets a 20 pounder. Green meat gets smasked and I lost the whole rig behind my snubber. 400 copper has a flounder pounder mag RV, takes a hit, 45 pound braid backing breaks. So...if anyone catches my copper line I just want the spoon back. Rigger at 65 with raspberry carbon gets a teenager. A great night, cant wait for tomorrow.
  8. The color of their gums. Coho are white compared to black in kings.

  11. Its not much better tonight. C14 on 300 copper 1 little guy in 250. But...im washing the dust off alot of gear. We just slipped into 110...few big hooks at 90. Fingers crossed. 54f at 91ft
  12. 2 hours tonight in 115 feet. Raspberry carbon down 68 gets 2 kings Not alot on marks or bait tonight, much different than last night.
  13. Bear creek yesterday 3 for 6 in 120 feet. Carbon 14 on copper and meat were my most productive.
  14. Took a buddy of mine out today after his cancer treatment to get him thinking about something other than his condition. On the water at 430, got to 120 feet saw a constant stream of marks at 80 and set up. 300 copper with mag carbon 14 gets a 12 pound brown. Green meat rig on fat Nancy flasher out 160 take a good run. Black meat rig on fat Nancy out 180 gets a solid hit...saw on my go fosh cam....so awseome. 300 copper goes again, 20 pound king on the deck. Raspberry carbon on rigger down 60 gets a 12 pounder. Temp was 58F down 70 in 120. As soon as I got outside 124 feet blank screens. Moved back into 120 feet the screens light up. Alot of fosh were high around 30 feet all afternoon. I tried to stack my riggers...I got alot to learn there...big mess. Back at it tomorrow.
  15. Ny. I live in Rochester and looking to made a day trip
  16. I'm new to walleyw fishing and I'd like to take my kids to lake erie ..any recommendations on ramp locations? Ty Dave
  17. On the water at 6, straight out to 160 and find 50 degrees at 60 feet. Messed around out there, nothing. Trolled west into 130 feet. Purple meat rig out 100 nets a coho. 300 copper with NBK gets a nice steelhead. Purple meat rig again steelhead. 2 more on a green dolphin on 10 color. Lots of marks in the 120-130 foot range but no bait.
  18. Today with the northwest wind I had my butt handed to me. While trolling west to east in 220ft everything on the stbd side was tracking to the port side. My low divers set on R1.5 tangled with my port side rigger cable. Then trolling east to west, same...port low dive on L1.5 tracking to the stbd rigger cable. Both divers were between 200 and 230 back and the riggers were parked at 95 and 100. I never experienced it before and as luck has it once I got stuff set a fish takes my stbd diver through every dam line I had out. Is this current thing normal? How frequent is it and how do I compensate for it. Ty Dave
  19. I worked 220 all afternoon. One good take on a purple meat rig, and one good rip on a green meat rig. 50f down 103. I gotta figure out the currents. Trolling west to east with NW wind, all my gear was drifting to the north side of the boat. My low diver kept getting tangled with the rigger cable...yes..the diver was set right...it was so frustrating. Same current situation trolling east to west...what gives?
