  1. Did not have any luck finding the stagers...we targeted the bottom in 80-110 FOW and marked very little with only one strike but it got came off. Buddy of mine had caught over 20 matures in the same area the week prior. The weather and wind were not great which definitely didn't help. The constant east wind has brought in the ice water - i was marking 48 degrees only 30 feet down. We were able to salvage the trip by moving out into 300 FOW and finally found some bait in one particular area which we pounded for several hours producing a 15 lb immature King and 12 steelhead, almost all good size. Disappointing regarding the matures, but glad I was able to get my first two experiences on Lake Ontario this year -- looking forward to next year! Thanks for everyone's help!
  2. On the way out at 1pm a guy said he caught one. It was pitch black on the way back in and it was a hurricane so couldn’t tell! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. There were about 30 guys fishing the olcott pier yesterday. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Same - fished olcott yesterday - went 0/1. Dead. ICE WATER. 48 degrees only 35 ft down! Current was wicked, hard to get a good troll. Wind kicked up big time and ruined the prime time evening bite to top off a crappy day. Hopefully today is better, still blowing hard out of the NE.

  6. Matt -- have you had any luck with Lakers recently? I went out to North East area to practice my King program for my upcoming Ontario trip and was hoping to hook up a few Lakers but I couldn't find them. I was working north of the mountain in about 100-110 FOW then ducked south of the mountain with no luck. Saw few marks on the bottom. Marks were all mid water column which I assumed were walleye. Funny I caught a walleye off the bottom in 47 degrees water in 100 FOW on a flasher and spinfish! I know the lakers will be in tight in a month or so to spawn which is a riot to with the jigging rod, but I wasn't sure where they are in this in-between time. I caught over 200 of them in the spring with dipsey w/ flashers and spin n glows and then later in the spring it was all spoons. I never had much luck with the cow bells, which I hear are better off riggers.
  7. HB2 and Tuff -- good stuff thank you! Would you guys say J-plugs are most effective at first light and not as much during the day? Trying to get a strategy together for my 3 day trip. Going to stick with Wire flasher flies on dipsey's but will need to figure out a winning combination of twinkie meat rigs, J-plugs, spoons on the riggers. I know the staging Kings are not wanting to eat but people are still catching a lot of fish with meat rigs I'm hearing. The flashing and spinning combined with the scent I guess is enough to get their attention and elicit a strike. Obviously, I'll see what the fish are wanting by throwing everything at them, but it would be nice to have at least a starting strategy for the riggers.
  8. Right but don’t put a cheater above it? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. No cheaters because they are so erratic? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Great thanks for the info, appreciate it! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Headed out to Wilson/Olcott later this week and was going to give j plugs a go. Never ran them before, any advice would be appreciated. I assume they are best to run off riggers? I have 30lb mono on my Tekota rigger rods.... probably a good idea to add a fluoro leader right? 20lb okay or bigger? Cheater spoon above? Mag or regular - how long of a leader for the cheater?
