I'm happy to report my first trolling success for Trout in Lake Ontario. I was only out for a few hours in mid to late afternoon, out of I-bay toward Webster. I was solo and managed to boat 3 total. 2 Brown and 1 acrobatic 4 lb steelhead. The one Brown was an absolute hog that took a good 15 minutes to boat. The other Brown was about a 5lber that I released. Smaller gray/brown/white stickbaits did the trick.

WTG nice fish for sure,, A suggestion for you, I notice your trolling speed looks a little fast, try to get down to 2 if you could,

this time of year I think slower is better, no expert here,, just a little tip, seeing I am boatless this year going to give the piers a shot, see what happens.. good luck out there, your hooked
