Salmon . Walleye. And Trout. ( S.W.A.T.)


Recommended Posts

 I had a fun solo trip out in breezy, windy conditions on Lake O mid-day yesterday, north of the salmon river.. I went 7 for 7, some off the boards and a few out a little deeper off the rigger.

 

5 browns with the largest being  a 26 1/2" female that never dropped her eggs,

 

29 inch  Atlantic that put my trout tackle to the test ,and jumped/ cart-wheeled 5 times,

 

and  also a 31 " hog walleye (released of course) that is the longest I have ever caught in N.Y. State waters. I'm guessing she was between 11 and 13 lbs .

I took a couple of  brown trout /Atlantic salmon comparison pics

Thanks guy's...it was a fun time out there despite the breeze. ( I just added another comparison picture,showing the inside of the mouth of each fish)

 

Pete, they are beautiful... also strong.... fast....acrobatic...and delicious ! Can't ask for much more than that !

 

momay/sk8man, thanks.  A lot of undersize atlantics do get kept by some fisherman that mistake them for silvery,lightly spotted brown trout. I hope the pics can help to see some basic differences between the two fish.

 

no fish fingers for me Glen.

Made it out of stony creek just north of you on Sunday as well, and caught 5 species. Was a fun day on the water.attachicon.gifImageUploadedByLake Ontario United1429713014.453854.jpgattachicon.gifImageUploadedByLake Ontario United1429713029.288114.jpgattachicon.gifImageUploadedByLake Ontario United1429713041.672470.jpgattachicon.gifImageUploadedByLake Ontario United1429713054.220501.jpgattachicon.gifImageUploadedByLake Ontario United1429713063.454344.jpg

We just got back from point breeze.
Fished 9 to 18 FOW. At 1.7 to 2.2 mph gps speed. We were pulling spoons and sticks 40 to 75 back on planers and riggers were 60 to 100 back and down 5’.
Sticks caught all the fish. Best color was orange.
