 Time to get back out fished solo............ tad late but was in brown mode again......was at spot at 8 am..... set up out deep and time to mess with minn kota i pilot ( REAL men don't read directions ):  anyway picked a bow up 55' down on rigger..... after a bit it was time to get directions out..... picked up one more bow same spoon same rigger same depth.....got the thing to work not sure what I did but the control was great could get in back still see depthfinder and X4 and steer  with remote.... dropped 55' rigger to 61' and dropped probe rigger to 55' ..... started banging lakers picked up 4 at the depth and lost 2 other fish....brought the 61' back to 55' and probe to 45* picked up one more bow ran into lots of weeds and it was getting pretty hot so called it at 10ish.....   see if I can get that thing to work again..... other than set up and when I ran into weeds I was working 65' to 118' bait has schooled up a lot since the last time out pods are huge then nothing for a while..... was getting hit with most every big bait pod , never worked back thru any of them......

Watch out for the iPilot. Once you figure it out, you'll never want to use anything else. 😃

That's how it works best. I use it on my little boat pretty much as soon as it is of the trailer. The only 2 functions that I seem to use are the autopilot (the little circle with an arrow and "N" in it) and cruise control (the little button with a speedometer thing in it). Point the motor the way you want to go, set the speed and relax. The guys over at MinnKota really got it right. ðŸ‘

I think I can make a turn tighter without tangling lines in the back , just seems like with the bow mount that it turns/tracks/follows better than using the steering/kicker on the back !!!! But need a bigger spread with diver rods out to tell for sure !!!! Only ran two riggers today and I can turn pretty tight with just those out...........I'll be using it more from now on for sure...........

      First time out and I am reporting as promised.   Just got back from fishing out of Sampson Marina. Headed to the Nwest side of the lake to try to play the winds which have kept me on the trailer since arrival. Ran a spoon program hoping for silver at 2-2.4mph. No silver but Landed 4 lakers. One with a lamprey which was promptly made into two and “released”. All fish looked really healthy, released well and swam away strong. Headed in at 11 when things got rough and I got hungry.   Was ple

    • Brown trout in Seneca and Cayuga

      what would be the better lake to target brown trout in Cayuga or Seneca? I will be on Seneca fishing Sunday mainly for silvers but wouldn't mind to tangle into a brown trout or 2 , would the north end or south end have a better chance of producing ? I'm just looking for a finger lakes trophy brown not so much into the numbers game if that helps any

      Hi folks! Well it’s been another year since I last posted and likewise I last visited the area. My trip went well last year. I only fished Seneca and despite coming a week or two after the flood we still managed some good catches between storms.   I have been following everyone’s reports so thank you everyone. That’s said, I had a few questions I was hoping someone might be so kind as to answer.   Setback from ball and ball type? Any thoughts? I will be bringing sharks both black and silv

      Went out of Roy’s and trolled south. Went 8/8 got blown off after two hours. Fish were down about 117. Grease traps with a single gambler were the ticket. 1.4-1.6 down speed. All were pretty decent size today!     Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    • Seneca South 7/10-7/11 (salmon bite)

      Got out around 730am Tuesday and fished the west side.  Didn't mark much bait/arcs in shallow so worked out deeper and across towards east side, started marking more fish and got bites off the deeper rigger.  Went 3/4 all salmon.  17incher went in the cooler, 2 dinks went back and a long distance release on another legal size silver.  All fish off rigger at 55ft on green ladderback spoon behind vertical green blades...   Made it out earlier today and it made a big difference.  On the w
