Had a great day fishing off Rochester this morning

We fished from 150-200 fow mainly top 40 foot

Steady steelheads with 3 kings(2 skippys)

Steelhead were all nice size in the 5-7 lb range with one nice 10lb fish landed and a few of that size lost

Dipsys, riggers and 2 oz dive bombs off boards all produced fish

Finger Lakes tackle spoons sold the show again today

We finished 10 for 16

Good luck and good fishing!

Great job Dan

 

Interesting how we couldn't get anything green going (some of the exact same spoons as you even), yet they produced for you.

We were in the same general area, although we continued to troll north to 500 feet to see what the half dozen or so boats that were out there saw, with no luck. We pulled lines and headed back in to the 250 fow area we had left.

We ended up 10 for 12 with 5 keepers, which is a good day for us. 3 steelies 5-7 lbs, an 8 lb laker, and a small king.

Top 40 feet for us. Caramel dolphin caught a few early off the rigger, free slider. One on a flt king of sting spoon off a dipsey, and a couple off flasher/ fly. Laker was on a black and silver stickbait off a board, so up high.

Be back at it in five weeks out of fair haven.

A beautiful day on the water with my brother and his neighbor.

I was one of those....there was a real sharp 5+ degree thermal break with a distinct scum line.  Don't know about the others but I only caught a few small ones (couple steelhead, skippy king, and of all things a brown)  so small I did not even use the net.  Did not get into the nicer size steelhead until about 350fow trolling back in.

I fished both areas this weekend (200-400 just east of the river, and 150-200 just west of the river).

I think the reason the green/glow worked for DD is that the water he was in was a nice green color.  The water you were in out deeper was very clear.

That's my theory anyway!

As a side note I will say Friday we fished water that didn't have much color and most of those lures were working well taking kings

 

From Friday Morning out of clearer water

We were one of the boats that were in 500'. Boated 10 but no real size to any of them. Looks like you were definitely better off inside. Awesome temp. break but smaller fish. Mix of boards, shallow riggers and one slide diver bite. Did take one off the 40' rigger on a Wonderbread. Other lures were mahi mahi, salmon slammer and boy/girl.
