@battlehammer you heading to Erie for eyes?  I've been out twice so far with very limited catches.  Trying to leave the egg bearing females alone and have been targeting shallow males after dark, but with the catch rate being slower, I'm thinking about hitting offshore reefs to fill the box.  Any success for you so far on spring eyes???

Spin- going Thursday night on my buddies boat. First Erie trip of the year for me. He fished Saturday night for his first time and caught 5 males in shallow. The night troll with light line is my favorite fishing of the year.

@battlehammer I agree.  Try to get out before dusk.  Ripping through mouth of Smokes fishing the same method as you do for Walleye will yield you guys some serious Slaunch Donkeys.  I hammered dozens of them a few days ago. 

 

That was a blast.  I'm relatively new to the Walleye troll.  You guys run Huskie's primarily?  Or even drop harnesses back?  I'm heading out Friday

   Just a thought, why just because the water gets deeper do "they"  close everything down??  The oceans  are miles deep and they don't shut them down due to deep water.  JMO the water is not the problem it is the people operating the launches/docks not taking the time to move, raise, extend, repair & make the docks useable.  We all pay to use the launches, improvements should be made when needed.   Olcott is always great & taken care of , no reason why all the others can't be!  No reason launches should be closed.

I agree- Olcott has it together. Wilson is State owned- that’s the problem with Wilson- common sense and State run anything never co-exist together. Wilson put floating docks in this year that you have to get to by walking on concrete- concrete that is the same level as the original dock that were their-genius’s!

Those only boat houses in the back ground? Looks like they are under a little water. I'm not familiar with the launch but looks like a restaurant under water too?

Those are mostly boat houses and yes they are under water- The houses are all up above- that’s the Island. All private owned homes. No restaurants of any kind

Oh okay, I saw a pavilion looking structure wasn't sure if it were a boat house. Either way that still sucks, we are a little higher up by the river but still seems like we are loosing a good amount of shoreline the last 2 years.

    • Boat Ladder, Hook Style, $25

      I am selling my 3 step boat ladder. It hooks over the gunwale, measures 36" long and 15" wide. It has the 7" wide hooks and hangs over the gunwale. It's in good working condition, and I think it is stainless steel. $25 local pickup around Watertown NY.   I'm selling it because it's too short for my boat. It will fit many different boats with an average gunwale height (my boat measures 36" from floor to top of gunwale).

    • Wilson 8/17 Nasty Currents

      Jumped out of Wilson today looking for browns in close since the lake flipped and there was a bunch of thunderstorms around. Only one fish today that came on a spin doctor and fly on a dipsy. Currents were nuts out there with over 2.5 mph difference from the surface to the ball. The one fish we caught is hanging on to second place for brown trout in the LOC.     Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    • Autopilot Recommendation Twin Outboard Boat

      Looking for an Autopilot recommendation from someone with a similar boat.  I have a 30 ft. twin 250 hp yamaha outboard powered boat.  The boat weighs about 11,000# loaded.  I've been on a few inboard boats that run the Raymarine EV-200 unit and it works great.  I was told I need to step up to the EV-400 with the type 2 pump due to the size of the motors.  Let me know what you have.   Thanks,   John
