  1. As a 33 year veteran of commercial fishing on the East coast I have a great passion for boats. I really enjoy checking out all of the great boats fishing LO. While I was fishing out of Oswego the first of the month I saw the boat "Blood Vessel" several days. One particular day it was very rough but she looked to be going 20+ kts and handling the conditions very good. Anyone know what model vessel this is?

    I saw several others that were taking the conditions very well also but I could not read the names.

    Luckily the fleas have been pretty spotty this season thus far but it will only take one experience of a dense concentration of the fishhook type fleas while reeling in a king or steelie to fully appreciate the comment.

    We had some bad experience with braid on our rigger rods fishing out of Oclott a couple of weeks ago. Braid is far easier to manage but when fleas are thrown into the equation wire worked without a issue.

    I think your wife and my wife need to talk haha. She’d kill me!

    My wife turned 56 on the 5th. Her energy level is off the charts. She can back up a boat trailer better then 90% of the men I know and she pinned all of the meat rigs we fished. She got up Sunday morning at 5 and said "we got fish to kill"

    Fished 3 days out of catfish Creek actually.   Got one king A-day in the 20 pound range. All on flasher flies, Michigan stinger 2 face with an atomic greenhammer fly, and Burkes Valium with aStud fly.  All on the deeper diver 107MMMM 250' out about 7280' down All on the deeper diver 107MM 250' out about 70-80' down.  The temperature break to 48゚ was at about 95' but it seemed the catcheable fish were still in 70'. Trolled most of the day morning and evening for one fish A-day it was a pretty brutal slowburn.  but my friends were happy.  anybody recognize this 16' boat out there I should be getting a little well known after the last couple of years.





    Man, a open boat in those temperatures... Your tough. I was there too in my boat with a top and cooked.

    All that gas money might’ve bought you a fish hawk😂 I hear ya though. Glad you got on some fish!

    With what I have wrapped up in the trip gas was the least of my concerns. Saturday night we got back to the room in Oswego at 12:30am (we visited Niagara after fishing) then lest Oswego at 5am for Oclott. Returned back to the room, packed up and headed to Maine at 10:30pm (11.5 hr ride). My wife drove the whole way home. I have Wifi in my truck so I started work at 8am. Long story short she was up 35 hrs and loved every minute of it. 

  6. I fished out of Oclott sat and sunday these were the temps in 400-430'

    45'-69 deg

    55'-57 deg

    60'-53 deg

    70' -49 deg

    75' -45.5 deg

    80' -46 deg

    90' -44.5 deg

    100' -43 deg

    110' -42 deg


    I had never fished this area before but me and the wife limited out both days in 4-5 hrs of fishing. Kings and steelhead. The steelhead were so aggressive at times I had to take the spoons off and put on meat rigs to keep them off the rods. I had two strikes/landed while setting the rods back in the riggers. Seemed to be 60-65' deep and Kings 71-65'

  7. I came for 6 days to try for a few kings. We have landed a few but from most reports the bite has been very slow. We did land one on Saturday that was 26.35 lbs. 4 kings has been our best day and today we only landed one and took two other hits that did not get a good hook set. I may trailer the boat to a different port the next couple of days.
    The majority of my hits are coming from a east or south troll. Without a Fish Hawk I may not have my speed dialed in. Also, I have been running high wire, low wire and riggers. I have not had a hit on the flasher flies so I took them off and added two more meat rigs. I went dead for many hours without a strike until I put one back on my high wire.

    You are correct. The previous leader managed to kill a century worth of good will. 


    Canadian's don't look at the Americans as partners or friends any longer. 


    I'm not sure how many decades it will take to fix that (or if it ever will be fixed). 

    You are a complete idiot for making a statement like that....

  9. So what are the regulations about fishing the Canadian side of Lake O? If your fishing the Niagara Bar are you allowed to fish over the line? Here in Maine we were always told we can fish the main lake on the Canadian side of a lake but we should not go into coves on step on land.

    Beauty of the Boga (or similar products) is when you pull the fish in with the net you grab it by the jaw and pull it out of the net. The alternative is putting your hand inside the fishes Gill plate and pulling it out of the net.
    Seen a lot more blood spilled utilizing the conventional method.
    Do agree totally regarding proper care for any fish that is going to be released.

    I dont think holding a heavy fish from the bottom jaw is a good idea at all. Grab the tail tightly and cradle under the head/gill area. Not putting fingers in the gills. Use the boga to pull the fish through the water maybe but dont hold the fish up by the jaw.

    Good topic.

    I think a lot of fish gets wasted. I can’t see people actually eating a full rack of trout/salmon. It is good for advertising and that’s about it.

    I have thought the same thing for years. We were on a charter a couple of years ago. My buddy landed a med king and told the mate to let it go. The Capt nearly fell overboard.
