  1. Nice looking mess of fish. Hope to be out myself Sat. morning from Olcott.
  2. Surface temp. was 45.7 - 46.7 on Saturday and about 1.5 degrees cooler Sunday.
  3. Can you say Weight watchers? Those are sows. Awesome! Congratulations.
  4. Went 6/7 with 5 kings (small/medium), 1 coho, and 1 football brown on Saturday and 2/3 Sunday in about 75 minutes of lines in before I had to call it due to waves (all mid size kings). 60 FOW +/- 5' was where it mostly happened for me, although 1 king and the brown came from 25 FOW. I was solo running 3 lines most of the time (but a bit of time with just my 2 deeper lines only). Spoons got everything with Dreamweavers in GetRDone and Jordo being best. A 6" Yakima Big Al's Fish Flash helped as well when paired with the GetRDone. In the deeper water I had best luck 40 - 50 feet down if I had to narrow it. Got nothing to the east of Olcott, with everything within a mile west of the creek mouth. Tight Lines
  5. Thanks for the report. That's a great day. I am fishing out of Olcott and my results don't seem to compare to what is happening from Rochester east. Now I only run three rods and have nothing particularly special in terms of gear, but still wish I could boost my hookup numbers. I feel the water here has been too clear compared to what it sounds like to the east. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it (for now anyway). Tight Lines back at ya'.
  6. That's a great solo effort. I fish solo most of the time and netting them can be hit or miss many times if the fish have any size to them. I really don' t understand why they can't cooperate and just jump into the boat at that point. Tight Lines
  7. For sure the weather has not cooperated much. I am off all this week and could only find 2 days that were manageable.
  8. I went out about 10:30 and had almost no company out there.
  9. Went 5/5 today after getting skunked yesterday. Two browns in 22 FOW with one high on a UV Tiger Thunderstick and one 17' down on a 3.0 Mag lip in color grinch. Two lakers in 55 FOW both on a Moonshine spoon color carbon running within 5' of bottom. One coho 25' down in 55 FOW on a Maglip 3.5 in color fishmonger. Speed was 2.0 - 2.3 GPS. Took me 6 hours with my three lines in just to get these. To me the fish are scattered, and a note that I got no fish in the 10 - 13 FOW range which I fished for two hours between the two days. Water is quite clear and I could see bottom in as deep as 17 FOW. I did talk to two guys yesterday (4/11) who said they got 7 - 8 lakers in 60 FOW running down riggers right on bottom. They said they got nothing on dipsy's or boards. I started my deep water run in 60 and got nothing after a significant amount of time. Great weather today and enjoyed the time out. All fish cooperated providing solid fights. Tight Lines
  10. Thanks for the information. It really does help inform the rest of us. Great work.
  11. Interesting picture Gill. That explain the outer band of brown water separated from the shoreline band by a section of green water. Yeah on temperature thing too. I figured maybe temp wise I was a touch ahead of the main group. I'm lucky to live about 20 minutes away. The gas prices will cut down a little on my 2 hr. Trips to Chautauqua and Honeoye. Have not fished the Oak in summer for bass in many years and this might be the time for a few return trips. Tight Lines
  12. First time for the year and went 4 for 5 on small browns (14 - 16"). Surface water temps were 35.5 - 36.6 in depths less than 20'. Ran boat in 9 - 12 FOW most of my 3 hours with lines in. Two fish on gold/black HJ10 50' behind the board 100 feet out, 2 on same size in UV green tiger 70' behind board 80' out, and another on lemonhead Maglip 3.0 40' back. I worked inside the mud water and had best luck a short distance west of creek mouth. Really nice day to be out, but where was everyone? I was out about noon - 3:30 and only saw 2 other boats out. Not looking for a crowd that's for sure but surprised at lack of others. Maybe they were out in the morning. Tight Lines
  13. Yankee - Could you describe the color ayu? I cannot find it on any lure website. I am wondering if it is the color of some BayRat Short Shallows I bought at the Niagara Fishing Expo a few years back. Thanks.
  14. Got 1 jack king in 40 FOW about 6:15 PM and had a swing and miss while releasing 1st one. Just east of Olcott. Green Dreamweaver with black spots and emerald shiner Procure on it. Swing and miss was Carbon 14 spoon. Lots of bait west of Olcott in 50 - 70 FOW centered about 30' down. Speed was 2.5 GPS running baits 25 - 35' down. I'll be back at it Sunday morning. Was my first time trolling in the Fall there after being a pier guy for nearly 40 years in Olcott. Not happy with the rocks along the piers and don't t see them as needed. P.S. Plan on weed covered trailer and boat after launch and retrieve. Tight Lines
  15. Am I correct that kings will typically come in shallower over the next few weeks?
  16. Fish in the boat and smiles on the faces. Thanks for the report.
  17. Only three for me today in 3 hrs of lines in time. Fished 50 - 70 FOW. Fish came from 53 - 57 FOW. Two on Maglip 3.5 32' down and 1 on Wonderbread Silver Streak mini 40' down. Surface temp. 41 - 42 degrees. Tight Lines
  18. Sounds like fun to me. Great work. That had to be non-stop action. Hoping conditions allow for a few hours Saturday morning for me. Tight Lines
  19. 4/4: Fished both sides of creek in 10 - 16 FOW between 8:45 - 10:30 with no luck. Certainly no mudline to be found. Water to east was very clear and only slight color to the west. I was the only boat fishing shallow for almost the entire time. The few other boats out were much deeper. I ran out to those depths (75 - 90 FOW) and still caught nothing, although found an area slightly West of the mouth where the bottom was covered with fish. No takers as I said. Understand that with the gear I have I could only run baits 60' down max. at even minimum trout/salmon speeds. Talked to a couple of guys at the launch who went 14 for 20 something on lakers. They said they ran baits 40' down over 50 FOW. Finding clear water was mentioned as key. The one gentleman even gave me one of the spoons they used (mostly green with some black dots), and wow was it big. If you are that person, thanks so much, and as I said I will pay it forward. Very classy and above the call. 4/5: Thanks to the info. from the guys the day before I headed east from the creek mouth in 50 - 60 FOW. Now I can't say I ever encountered clear water but eventually did hit a double on lakers. For the day (9:15 - 1 PM lines in) sent 4/5 on lakers, all of which were solid size. The one lost fish was probably the biggest and I was barely gaining any ground on him. Four fish came on spoons, two on wonderbread and two on a mostly green silver streak. These were caught with baits at 40 - 50' down, mostly the former. One fish was on a Maglip 35' down ( NFL color). Speed was 1.9 - 2.1 over ground. Surface temp was 39.3. Interestingly I did not get anything on the spoon the guy gave me the day before. Tight Lines
  20. Always nice when visitors have a nice time. Thanks for the report.
  21. How were you running the spoons? Lightly weighted and shallow, off riggers, other? Just wondering if fish came high, mid, or deep for 15 FOW. Tight Lines
