When I got out to the lake it was nice and calm. I fish out of a small 16 foot tiller and with the good reports and my two newly acquired clamp on riggers for the boat I decided to shoot out to 55 fow and see what was happening. Worst case scenario I slide back in for browns seeing that I never fished out a little deeper before and didn't know what to expect. I was fishing solo. Planned on sending down the two riggers and throwing out a stickbait on the surface to possibly pick up a Coho. The Third rod never made it in the water. I had non-stop action the whole evening, mostly lakers, one steelhead, and my first ever Lake Ontario Kings the biggest going 19 pounds .

Ran two stingers, one DWB and one Frog both took the fair share. What an incredible evening, well worth the hour drive to squeez a few hours of fishing in. Bunch of lakers in the 8-12 lb. range. the two other kings in the low teens.

First mate

Yes the first mate does take good pictures, he's not camera shy. Gps track wasn't to bad, expect for the figure 8 I did with the big King, lol. Prob wouldn't get away with it with a walleye spread out but the short leads on the downriggers are very foregiving.
