My wife and I left the dock at 1030 and headed out to 140 FOW. Steady marks and fish all the way from the nose to Wautoma Shoals. Did the Lake Ontario cycle with every species of trout and salmon you can catch. The last one we needed for the cycle ended up putting Melissa in 8th place in the steelhead division. The fish hit a green crinkle A-tom-mik fly behind a hammertime spin doctor down 85'. At the scales it came in at 13.00lbs. It was a short trip due to lightning but we got a lot of fish to the boat in that short time. Almost every time one rod went off, we ended up doubled. Tons of upper teens kings and low 20's kings around. Back out this weekend. I will post the picture later.

Here is the pic of my wife's steelhead.

Nice job on hitting for the cycle with your wife......(insert joke). It seems someone gets the cycle out of that area every year. Could be the claim to fame for that stretch of water.

Brian, congrats on the steelhead. I have finally put your lake trout program together down east and put a 20th place laker on the board yesterday. My young boys were not interested in staying out to top it. Bill
