  1. Two pieces I saw were 4-5" and 8-10' long
  2. While fishing Lake O Thursday-Saterday I saw several logs floating. Those would make a mess for sure it they were hit just right.
  3. I bought a new boat in April. Its a 20.6 Duckworth. I installed a 99 Yamaha kicker with the TR-1 autopilot. I have 25 years of experience running APs on commercial boats. This works great but sometimes 3-10 times per day it goes into "Standby mode" and stops steering the boat. Some times to does it when I walk back to adjust the riggers and the boat tips slightly but many times it will go into stby when there is no movement aboard the boat. Any idea what could cause this?

Note: I did not think to look at my voltage when this happens and I am only running one battery.
  5. I should add I only have 30-35 lure choices so my options were limited. The first day we had 7 small kings all on a carbon 14 at 105-110 down in 145-150 fow. I try to avoid small fish so I dropped down to 125-140' the next two days. FF seemed to get the most hits for me yesterday. I stacked spoons above the two riggers 15-18' above the 8-10 back without one strike all day.
  6. As others stated i did not see temperature until i got to 100-110' and 55-58 degrees. I was 145-160 down 125-140. I have no experience with Kings and I did not get one over 9-10 lbs but others said it has been tough also. I did miss 7-8 fish yesterday and at least two screamers. It seemed like the kings were just nipping at the baits not overly aggressive.I avoided the fleet as much as possible and just looked for bait and larger fish in temperature and worked those areas.
  7. First time fishing my own boat on Lake O. We fished Thursday, Friday and today. We came not really knowing a lot but we do fish a lot in Maine so we figured we would give it a shot. We landed 12 kings all but one was small 15-20” so we released them. We did get one 8-9 lbs. We did manage some beautiful lakers one at over 26 lbs my wife caught. We landed 2 whitefish, 4 browns, 12 kings, 20+ lakers and a white bass so it was a great trip. The sea conditions Thursday morning was tough but it improved as the day went on. We are already looking forward to our next trip. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. The fish were damaged at the hatchery. We see it all the time with farm raised Atlantic salmon
  9. I was there from 7-9am and i saw the same thing. Lots of marks but not a bite.
  10. Thanks I will look around more tomorrow. I did get two today.
  11. I bought "Fishing Hot Spot" maps recently. Mine doesn't have TD overlays on the maps.
  12. We marked quite a few but no takers after 1.5 hrs so we left.
  13. I will be fishing out of Henderson for the next few days. Where are the browns this time of year? Seems like the kings are beginning to stage so we thought we would try browns for a day.
  14. I got out yesterday and put in a long day. I hooked into a screamer about 7:30 but ended up pulling the hook. We fished 140-150' most of the day and ended up with 7 small kings, 1 brown, 2 whitfish and a 26 lb laker.. I checked the water temp and had 75 deg until 100' then at 110 I had 55. Seemed like there were kings around but they may have had loc-jaw. Others I spoke with also marked alot but I didnt hear of any mature kings being landed. I will be here two more days. I am running out to the shipping lanes today. Good luck all.
  15. Thanks. I am here now and as you know its 20-22 mph so Oneida may be a option.
  16. I fished commercially for over 30 years using TDs because of reasons mentioned above the 12000 line on the 9960 chain follows the edge of the bottom almost perfectly, and many guys still reference areas to fish in TDs
  17. Yes just like that. I stopped by West Marine today in Watertown but the charts they had did not have TDs
  18. I will be fishing out of Henderson from Aug 5-9. I plan on taking one morning to try to get a walleye as I have always wanted to catch one but never seen one. I have a 20' Duckworth. I am leaning to trying Oneida for a morning unless there is a decent chance near Henderson where I may have a good chance at catching a few. Any areas close to Henderson or Oneida? Depths, baits? Thanks
  19. I was just reading the name on the "Fishing Hot Spots" chart. I did see the "Wall" your referring to in the shipping lane. So how are these areas producing now? The Wall (shipping lane) and the Trench.
  20. I have the Nobel Tec Time Zero Explorer I use on commercial vessels for scallop fishing and the option to lay TDs over the charts are on that program. I have not checked on my Garmin yet
  21. Yes, The area from the "Trench to the Wall" just west of Stony Point 116-150' of water
  22. I have caught 1,000s with a Sabiki rig in the ocean at depths of 2-275'. We just put a 1 lb bell sinker on the rig. Those rigs will catch about anuthing from a 5" elwive to a 6' poorbeagal.
  23. Is there any salmon or trout in this area this time of the year? I will be in Henderson Wed-Sun
