Took the Grady out for the first time this year. Had to check the water pump replacement first. That was ok, not much of a stream out the telltale hole, but as I recall it never did. Ran around full throttle for a awhile, and had no overtemp warnings, so all is well. Both Motors ran perfect.

 

Trolled for two hours from 10 feet out to 100. Very muddy water, 37 degrees. Not a bite. Saw quite a few fish on my screens though, at all depths. Found out my new HDS 7 GEN 3 does not show depth reliably in shallow water. Disappointed with that. Kept losing the depth reading. Also need to learn how to program/calibrate my itroll.

 

Probably 10 rigs in the lot.

I went out of Olcott on Sunday as well.  3 hours. I got nothing but some nice sunshine.  And a nice afternoon with my sister.  Spoons.  Rapalas.  Nothing.  I spoke with one person who got 1.  I wonder why the water was so muddy?  Muddy on shore.  Muddy all the way as far as I fished.  That went out to 60 FOW.

Yes, muddy out to 105 fow which is far as I went. I went straight out and East. I wonder if I went west towards Wilson the water would have been clear? Here is a picture of my screen:IMG_20180422_165133590.jpg

This time of year in Niagara County those crazy screen shots are usually Lakers or near creek inflows- adult gizzard shad.  Gizzards usually have an upward pointing hook on the graph so probably Lakers.  The water needs to clear up a bit before those hooks start snapping with regularity.

We went out of Olcott yesterday from 1-4pm, went west towards Wilson, 18-22 FOW on the way out, water was 37-38.5 degrees, on the way back we ran 8-14 FOW and water temp got up to 41 in shallower, wasn’t muddy on the west side but green stained, I could see the Bay Rats for about 4-5 feet. Never touched a fish though and quite a few boats out.

Fished olcott Saturday and Sunday, Saturday trolled from olcott to somerset, got one 4 pound brown in 28 fow right in front of somerset. Turned and ran between Wilson and niagara to look for cleaner water, found gin clear water in 70fow, caught 3 lakers almost instantly and a small king trolling back in. Sunday the water wasn’t any better but picked up a 10lb brown after trolling from olcott all the way to Wilson.

Forecast this week will clear the water off Niagara County.  Expect much different results next weekend.

Thanks for all the reports and tips guys. I'm glad I wasn't the only one having a slow day.
