  1. We used to troll the ledge with stick baits and would catch a lot of sheepshead and some big perch. Very steep drop-off as others have mentioned. Sometimes the graph would be absolutely stacked when the fish were in there.
  2. Got the goods in the mail today. Thanks for the fast shipping!
  3. I went out of Ibay for a late morning trip from 10-2. Headed N in search of some lakers. Fished 90 to 140. Not much bait or anything on the screen. Couple of marks down 60 over 120 but not worth trying to setup on. Didnt run my fish hawk as I was bouncing the bottom. Had a charter boat follow me for a little bit and it looked like they were fishing for lakers as I saw a couple of cowbells. Didnt mark anything on the bottom until i got to about 120. Fishing was slow as far as lakers are concerned. Not a whole lot of marks. Ended up 4/5. All fish over 12# with one pushing 20# which was my biggest of the season. Kids first time out on the lake and she did great. Shes 3 and had a blast casting her barbie rod off the front of the boat. According to her I am not allowed to catch any medium sized fish because they are mean. Big ones are acceptable. Realize that this intel probably doesnt help you much. Hope you are feeling better! Good luck!
  4. This is a good reminder to cover my FH when I take the cover off the boat. Lots of condensation in the morning and I'm not sure I trust the display or connections to be waterproof. Rice method works for wet/moist electronics. I've had it work on stuff I would have sworn was toast....
  5. Did anyone get into anything today? I did not. Marked some fish here and there with a couple of streakers and managed to tangle up half my spread really good at one point. Hope others did better. Thinking it is time to start focusing on the woods......
  6. Im halfway in between the river and bay. Fished 60 to 80. More marks in closer. Heading out deeper as well. Temp 65 at surface and 60 at the bottom. Very consistent temp..... No bites.
  7. Ill be launching out of i Bay and heading towards the river. I plan on dropping lines halfway in between. Will post what I find.
  8. Set lines just before 7am in 80fow and headed NNW. Saw some bait and marks in 80-90. No takers. Temp at surface and 10 foot off the bottom was about the same until about 120fow. Screen was blank from about 100 until about 140. Headed out to 220 or so with no bites then headed back shallower. Wanted to head deeper but it got a little choppy for my 19 footer. Once we hit 170, the screen was full of bait and fish down 120-140. Hooked a mature on a green FF on the rigger down 130 over 160 and lost it right at the boat. We spun around and hit the same water about 20 minutes later and hooked another mature. Different green FF down 130 on the rigger. This one was also lost right at the boat due to a terrible net job which I have to take the blame for. =0( Large deeper divers with FF and meat and spoons on coppers/boards with snap weights took no hits. Went 0/3 with the two lost matures and a knock off. Lots of junk and weeds in the water. Fleas minimal. Fished for browns in 80fow for a bit with no luck. Lots of boats looked like they headed NNE out deep then came back inside then looked like they went out farther again. Pulled out and headed to Billy's for a cheeseburger and a cold one. Both the cheeseburger and beer were very good. Where are all the reports?
  9. Headed out of ibay this morning NNE to about 90 fow. Set rigger down 70 about 6:45 and went to set a second rod and it fired with a descent brown. Spoon wasnt down 1 minute. Temp was deep but consistent. Headed to 150 and hardly anything on the graph and no bites so headed back shallower. When we hit about 110' around 8am we started to get into some action. At this point we were farther west somewhere in the middle of the bay and river. Riggers with carbon 14 mags down 75 to 85 and dolphin nk28s on cheaters took hits as did my 300ish copper with a carbon 14. Went 11/15 with a few skippies, a 5# king, an atlantic (first for me), a laker and several browns. Browns were all 6-8#s. Took a good rip on a F/F out 150 on a deeper diver. Fleas were almost non existent. For a couple hours is seemed like we didn't go more than 10 minutes without a hit which was pretty cool. Lake got pretty choppy around 1130 so calls it quits. Maybe next time well get some big ones. Hope this intel helps someone.
  10. Have some questions on what to expect when we start to head into fall. Almost all of my Lake O experience was summer time almost 20 years ago and not so much in the fall. We fished hard and caught some fish but now I have my own boat that is fairly well rigged for trolling and really don't know what to expect. Looking on some info on what I can expect as the fish start to change their behavior and get ready for the fall. Other than moving in front of the rivers, what kind of technique or tackle changes should I be thinking about? About what time do the kings start moving shallower? I saw a couple of fish that were starting to turn dark already. What are the implications with fish changing color, moving closer to the rivers? Any implication in meat quality when they turn colors or does it decline when they are closer to the rivers? How about browns and steelhead? Anything else you would like to share I'm all ears! This site has been a wealth of knowledge for a guy like me. Thanks, in advance, for your time in sharing your knowledge.
  11. I set lines at 150 around 7 this morning. Temps were not consistent but I did mark some fish. At one point I had 70 degrees down 100 over 150. I did pick up a nice king over 220 down 110 on carbon 14 spoon. Funny thing is that I saw a "streaker" on the graph and mentioned it to my dad. 2 seconds later a rod fires and a 20#er heads for the moon. Wonder if the fish followed the meat rig on the other rigger and then hit the spoon that was set a bit farther out? Finished the day 2/3 with a skippy and a knock off. Headed back to the dock around 1130 to haz mat situation. There must have been 5 fire trucks and 40+ firefighters, LEOs and DEC. I guess a boat that was parked at the dock was leaking oil or gas?? Took more an hour and a half to get the boat out as they had everything blocked off. This situation cost me a free cheeseburger. =0(
  12. Were all the fly lots spoken for? If not Ill take one. Thank you!
  13. I have the following for sale or trade 2x Cannon MiniMags with Tab lock bases. These were on my boat and work 100%. Perfect for a smaller boat. Plugs work but should be replaced. $275 for the pair 2x Cannon Mag 10s. One has a long arm and the other has an extendable boom. These come with the mounting blocks. Plugs need to be replaced. $175 Each 2x Cannon Swivel bases (I think they are 6 position) $60 2x Cannon Gimbal mounts $60 Will entertain full or partial trades for medium to high end rods/reel or tackle. Could use a little of everything such as 8" flashers meat rigs, divers etc. Maybe some pretty spoons (I have a bunch of ugly ones already) I am located in the West Side of the Rochester area. Hit me up with any questions. ************************************************ Update: The mag 10 with the long arm is sold pending funds. The mag10 with the adjustable boom needs a switch replaced. I will do that soon. If you want to buy it before I replace it, you can have for $90. The motor and clutch work. Make an offer on everything else. Thank you! ************************************************
  14. Figured that it was time to introduce myself considering I have been a lurker for a long time now and have my boat all rigged up at this point. I'm from Spencerport and will primarily launch out of Sandy Creek, Braddocks or Irondequoit Bay. Used to fish the big lake a lot 20 years ago and am excited to have boat of my own. If you see a guy out there with a 19' blue Mirrocraft with 2 white johnson outboards and big jon riggers its probably me. Been doing pretty well on the lakers the last couple of weekends out of I-Bay to get the boat dialed in. Time to move on to focus on the Kings! Looking forward to contributing to this great community!
  15. Looking for a 300 copper, leadcore, wire diver setup and a bunch of other stuff. Just getting started myself. If you are close by would like to stop by and check out what you have. Thank you!
  16. Interested. Any chance you can send some pics? Where are you located? Thank you!
