  1. Seager's has never once disappointed me over the last 25 years. Can't say enough good things.
  2. Generally run them pretty high. Maybe 10 down and no more than 50 back. A one or two color rods on the boards too if traffic allows. Dipseys maybe 25-35' on a 3 setting. Dipseys can be deadly this time of year.
  3. Headed out Saturday afternoon around 3pm, heard it was slow inside so we headed out to around 485'. Good bait and steady action on a mixed bag of kings, coho, and steelhead. After the run back we decided to drop the J-Plugs in front of the river. Around 40' the bottom machine was showing lots of fish. Ten minutes later we were hooked up to major. Caught and released and then back to the doc. Good company, nice weather and cooperative fish - a good day. Chuck
  4. Since my post I've boated several over 4# and some monster largemouth too. Not like Cayuga but if you put the time in you can score. Boat traffic is the biggest issue now. Thanks for the feedback.
  5. The weather buoys are the best. They give wave height and have cameras on them
  6. Greenhornet73, I have to differ with you on that one. It's the best I've ever seen it, and the fish are monsters. Look at the results from last weekend's Elite Series tournament. NYS is now regarded as one of the top bass fishing states in the US. Between Cayuga, Oneida, and Ontario you can catch world-class fish on any given day. Four pound fish don't even impress anymore. Has to be over six to get any attention. We now return you to atlantic salmon. Ah yes, a controversial little fish that one. I still say if they can get a summer run fishery in the creeks let's do it. The more fisherpeople we have the better it is for everyone. IMHO, YMMV
  7. Lake Ontario is already a world-class - and some would argue the world's best - smallmouth fishery. I don't think they need to work on it. With the arrival of Gobys and blueback herring it just keeps getting better and better.
  8. We discovered just hitting them with the washdown removes them as quickly and cleanly as anything. You can shake most of them off slapping the water but the ones that get on knots and swivels, just hit them with washdown.. They were so bad last week we had them on the hooks. That was a first.
  9. What about the Seeforellen brown trout? Anybody else been fishing as long as some if us and remember the predictions of 50# brown trout swimming around? What ever became of that one?
  10. The thiamine issue is a legit concern. I'm starting to see more and more blueback herring in the lake and I'm not sure if that will make a difference, but it could if they manage to outcompete the alewives and take over as the dominant forage. I have no idea if the thiamine issue is also associated with the blueblacks.
  11. Not sure I'm sold guys. Trolling for kings the fish is always in a 3mph current behind the boat that makes a fish seem to fight mor than it really does. I like to jig kings and on a drift they quit pretty easy too. Of course, that's my experience and everyone else's might not be the same. What say we just pour a lot of salt in the lake and put in reef donkeys? Ain't nuthin' pulls like an AJ, lol.
  12. Well, what Great Lakes salmon fishermen spend on fishing isn't even a pimple on an elephant's but compared to bass fishermen. When you see a "Salmon Pro Shops" catalog let me know. Or compare how much inventory in most tackle shops is devoted to bass gear vs, salmon gear. Bass fishing is fun and takes way more skill than most will appreciate. Salmon fishermen seldom if ever share the same water with bass fisherman so live and let live. What's wrong with people having fun? BTW, I do both kinds of fishing and I find bass fishing a lot harder to consistently produce bites. Chuck
