Deep water was a rollin' a little too much on Mon AM so stayed in close to join a few others who I assumed were fishing for browns. Never really tried for these and I don't have planer boards in the boat, but we set the spoons far back 60-70' and trolled 8-11' down in the 30-40 fow area. Marked a lot and managed to boat a couple nice ones.  Any other hints for fishing for browns without planers? My brother's first trip up for Lake O fishing and I got him on a few nice Kings the day before out in 400'.

For the most part I run smaller spoon like slim Michigan stingers. 60' leaders off the ball and set the riggers where the marks are. I tend to get the bigger Browns closer to the bottom. Dipsey or slide divers out 60' or so also work great. With the planners I will run leadlines. Hope this helps.

You don't necessarily need planer boards for fishing BT this time of year. Find where 55-65* meets bottom and go to work.

Yankee is on the money "don't necessarily need boards for browns this time of the year"

We mixed it up yesterday in OZ fishing both Kings & Browns. Had a great Brown bite last two hours of daylight. Riggers 5-15' off the bottom, slide diver on one side and a modified Chinook diver out 100' on the other side. All took multiple shots.

We did have cores on the boards as well but only took 2 hits on those.

Michigan stinger standard size & Dreamweaver super slims are all you need.

Although they do love the meat as well. 

Most important is find the temp and fish the marks.

Thanks for all the tips guys. Will definitely try the smaller spoons and dipseys and watch my bottom depth. I like the idea of an evening run for browns because it's easier to reach the shallower water from dockside.

      Saturday got out to the end if the piers at 6am and turned around. Jigged up a catfish in the bay and decided it wasn’t our day. Breakfast at Bayfront.   Sunday I got my sister and nephew out. 2/5. One brown early and a laker. Fished 45-160. Didn’t mark much. Did anyone find kings around Rochester without going way offshore?     Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

      Sunday 8/4 morning was a blow off. Went out around 4pm with waves at about 3' +/- Forecast was for the wind/waves to settle down and they did. Went Northeast out of the harbor to about 220' Spun around and trolled with the waves at my back.  Took 2 fish at 180' one came on 50' rigger/spoon NBK the other on 10 color w/Black/silver spoon. Then nothing for a couple hours. Decided to troll my way back to the harbor. Got to 65' finally had some prospects on the screen and the 5 color c

    • Trolling for browns

      After my 3rd skunk in a row on Conesus, I'm ready to switch it for a bit! Last year around this time we took the boat (16' Duranatic ) and casted for a bit just to see what was out there and to my surprise found a bunch of browns and landed one. I have never fished Lake ontario on my boat besides that one time, and it's not setup for kings out deep - I can run two dipsys on my musky/pike rods for now though. For anyone that fishes for them, what depths should I be looking for them

    • IBAY 7/26 PM

      Took a friend out to the lake for the first time from 7-9 Friday night. Marked bait and fish from 80-90 FOW east of IBAY but not one bite. I ran divers (no riggers)from 40ft to bottom with spoons and ff. Not many boats out there, maybe I missed something (no temp probe). Any tips appreciated. Thanks in advance.
