  1. So the water is mixed fleas are difficult, but found the zone this evening with help from one of my son's. Took a quick troll earlier in the day and copper was king, lead cores took small ones, but the riggers were frustrating to say the least, first not many fleas, then next minute loaded....decided to hang them up and run wire, copper and core through my son's suggestion. Temp still good 50-60 down..... told him no expectations, afternoon started slow, wind started to die down and fish picked up, some good silvers on copper and core, he showed the old man how to bring them to the net! Proud moment for me.
  2. Fleas, fleas, fleas......horrible.......wind shifted 3 directions in 2 hours, opposite blow from yesterday, mixing things up a bit. Ran copper and cores this morning.....no big silver, all skippers, bass still making it fun though, and going deep is producing Lakers. Temp still good between 50 to 60, north was 55-75 down......just gotta keep pounding it till I find them again.
  3. Fleas back bad with hot weather, pulled riggers out, put out the TD, temp good 50 to 60, adjusted copper and cores. We got a few, couple silver, bronze and Lakers, radar looks ugly, cut it short, fun quick trip for my buddy with the big smallies, thought we had good silvers on.....screamin bronze backs though, ...no complaints! Fun.
  4. Fished hard with a buddy on owasco, checking out usual spots resulted in fish, but many fleas too......brought the copper and cores.....but they wanted the riggers today. Lost 3 good bows leaping and coming unglued, including a hammer that stayed on the surface after he broke me, chased him down as he looked like a shark on the surface, but as i approached with the net......she slapped her tail at me an was gone.....oh well. caught many little bows with 2 doubles on slider and terminal spoon.....that was fun trying to land them.......all in all good day with mixed bag of bows, small browns, bass and lakers.......fleas came back bad though
  5. This Sunday morning I took the family pontoon boat from our cottage for a quick fishing trip. Armed with 300 and 200 weighted steel wire, but without any electronics whatsoever. I did not even know my speed. All I had to do was going to known honey holes and in barely 2 hours I ended up with 3 lakers 1 brown and 3 rainbows. I kept one nice 4 pound rainbow for lunch. It struck me that Lake Ontario tactics for lakers in Owasco do not work. Instead of very deep fishing, steep drop offs and land point extensions are the ticket. It was good to see that the rainbow and brown population has recovered to where it was 30 years ago.The lake does not have any lamprey,which does help a lot. It's fun not to have to worry too much about the waves and the weather and even more fun to catch a nice rainbow 100 yards off shore right in front of the cottage with my landlubber family staring in disbelief that such big fish even exist in the lake. They thought that rainbows only exist in Wegmans stores.
  6. Took a friend out today, got in the zone I found yesterday, didn't get third rig out and we had a taildancer behind the boat. Nice female bow, jumped 6 times and threw the hook, can't believe with 77 degree surface temp that she had anything left after 2 leaps.......reset and it was on, a nice mixed bag with cores and coppers king up high. First time this fella was trolling and he got spoiled, told him it wasn't always like this and that I put a lot of time in yesterday to find it....great day though, he is hooked!

    Owasco Silvers!!

    Started off slow......a few Lakers, took about 4 hours to find......hit the zone and core starts screaming......circled for the next 2 hours, got a limit of bows, caught a bunch of small browns, and a few more lakers.....silver is there, stay true to your zone and when ya find them, rods will fire!
  8. Back after a long hiatus. Hit the water looking for bows, laid out the coppers and cores, and a few riggers.......good news is the fleas are minimal......slow start then hit a flurry of 14-16 inch bows, looked to be all same year class, all came on cores......found a sweet spot and the copper fired with a nice brown, followed by another copper firing with another good brown........circled spot few mire times and only took small bows and browns, ........took a break, hit it again at around 5, had my son and his buddy working small ones then a shallow, yes shallow rigger fires and my son's buddy was fighting a heavy fish for about 35 minutes......ended up being a beast of a laker.....(were was this guy during the tourney), anyway a great memory for him, and i had no net.......good times......fish are there......great screens produced nothing and blank screens took hits.......all in all great trip out.

  16. A boy and some silver! Took a young boy out this morning that was eager to fish, after a tough couple hours of battling weeds and adjusting depths we locked up and the battles began. He learned quick and was rewarded for it. Cores started the action with copper and riggers to follow later in the morning. Temp went deep and the break was below 55ft. Good day for a slow start, finished with 7 bows and a couple lakers in the zone........and a happy boy to boot.
  17. No gold, but Silver and bronze! Got out with a buddy this morning and tried to find the zone after these windy days, took a bit but adjusted back up above 40 ft and found some, riggers good today with copper and core only giving up bass and small browns. Had one triple on bass that was fun with a rainbow hit when we landed the third. Messed up the copper but after 20 minutes i got it untangled. Overall 3 for 4 on bows, 2 browns, 5 smally's and 4 lakers. Good morning but blustery!
  18. Another great day of silver! Took my son's buddy out today and had a good silver bite again. Temp still down below 50 feet. Yesterday's spot weeded up on us, got sick of pulling weeds, on the Brite side, fleas gone. Cores and copper did it again today. 7-11 on bows.......no jumpers at all, temp has got um a Lil lazy, they'd come out of it to hit and wanted back down. Couple small lakers up in the zone. Great weekend again.

    Owasco Owasco 8-26-17

    Owasco 8-26-17 Morning troll not bad, few silvers, plenty of lakers.....fish from last week went deep. Temp was still 72 down at 40! Buddy had fun, 3 bows, 6 lakers, and the magic perch!!!!## cores and copper still doing the damage.
  20. Silvers!!!!!!!!!! Took a buddy out this morning hit the silvers good, it's the time of year. Cores and copper on fire ! Good morning, 4 for 5 on good bows, 1 small brown, 1 good high laker, and a couple small mouth. Fish on boys!!!!!! Back on the water after a month long hiatus!!!!!!
  21. Trip last Sunday So after 2 years I decided to make a trip out of Owasco. First off I live in Scranton Pa and have enjoy this lake for many many years. That is until now. It wasn't because of the lake being so high from all the water the lake received putting a large amount of debris in the lake nor the terrible flees grabbing even my 30lb test.. Not even the small lakers I caught that day which was a total of 4. It was when I got back to my trailer and noticed that someone had stolen one of my bearing buddies leaving my bearing grease exposed to all the dirt and grim that ticked me off. Pretty much leaving me no choice but to drive home that way and then having to replace the bearings and races. If that is how things are up there anymore I think I'm done with the lake. Wish all you guys the best of luck.

    Owasco Big laker today

    Big laker today Fishing wasn't great today but put a big laker in the boat, took the planer board under. Put my neighbor on the rod and the battle was on......took alot of great runs, came to the net at 34 inches and bouncing just over 17lbs on the bogo. Biggest laker I've put in my boat on this lake. We released her to fight again...state released fish with left pectoral fin clip......good day on water. Was truly a day maker!

    Owasco owasco 4.26.17

    owasco 4.26.17 Howdy all, I launched around 3 pm from Emerson Park. It's still a mess, so if you plan on going there, bring your patience pills. I headed south, trying to set up a troll that would bring me around Burtis point. The floating debris in the water from mid to east side made any kind of a successful troll pretty much a waste of time. I stuck to the west half of the lake and managed to get a few flat lines out for a while, but they produced nothing. I found a few good screens in the lower half of the lake, and connected with one 20" ish laker from 100' on a bright small spoon. All my other attempts came up empty. Anyway, the weather was great, and it beat working ! Rusty
