  1. Great first evening out of Wilson! Thanks @Gill-T! My son’s first king was a doozy! He had an awesome time, except for the thunderstorm that was supposed to miss us but didn’t. It was mostly a mag moonshine bite. Most bites 50-65 down.
  2. Bueller? Is this site dead these days? I’ve been gone for a bit but seems like spooky hollow around here now. Too bad
  3. I’m taking my son to Wilson next week for his first King Trip! Unfortunately my Dad can’t make it this year due to back problems (ever since he reeled in that fish in pic below lol) but hopefully I’ll succeed on getting the next generation “hooked”! if anyone wants to collaborate please let me know. I’m completely flying blind this year due to life getting in the way of fishing, but heard from one guy that the fish were in a little tighter this year 200/300s compared to normal mid late July 400/500s? Any other general trends setting up this season fellas? thanks in advance
  4. My son is a first year college student in Rochester this year... I'd like to help him get started fishing with an introduction to fishery with a guide. Anyone know how I can get linked up with somebody? I suppose I can call around to the tackle shops but thought I'd start with a post here just in case. He has some experience and most of the gear needed, not a rookie. Thank you! ~ErieBuck
  5. Our best combo was 8 inch Chin Music spin doc with Dreamweaver Pickled Sunshine Fly, running 10-20 ft off bottom, mag dipsey, wire. The big males were smacking it non stop 4-6pm. Switched to glow stuff after 630pm and took a huge hit from an absolute monster with 8 inch white crush glow green dots, atomic glow stud fly, but the big one got away… broke 50Lb dispey leader somehow below the snap on the dispey end. Must have had a nick from a tangle . Took another on 10 inch carbon 14 spin doc twinkie meat rig on rigger, near bottom.
  6. Same. After trolling over them for many hours without luck it got me wondering if it might be more effective to agitate a bite by jigging
  7. Never seen fish stacked like this. This was 105 ft, so many fish sonar can’t find bottom
  8. Set up 95 FOW off 6 mile only got 2 rods out and dipsey FF fired right away, 20+LB mature. Finally landed the beast and put same rod out and it fired again within 5 min. 24Lb. Thanks to @Gill-T for the afternoon/evening recommendation!!
  9. Weird they were stacked up there beyond belief the last several days but few biters. Was planning on heading over there later today
  10. Thanks we’ll give it a try! Stoked it early again today 6 Mike to bar, ran into 400 and had steady action. Mostly steelhead and a few nice kings
  11. We had a GREAT screen from 6 mile to the bar 90-120 FOW. Got one bite in 5 hours. Threw everything I had at them. Ran out to 350 just to catch a fish and got a steelhead and teenager king. Disappointing, hopefully they turn on today.
  12. Yes, I bet it’s loaded! Looks like it will be a calm lake so I’ll be able to run down there pretty easy. Does 12 mile/ Wilson harbor usually attract many fish? Was going to take a look this evening
