Saturday morning May 8th - Karen, and her family joined us from Ohio this morning with LOC derby tickets in hand. Unfortunately, we didn't put anything on the leaderboard, but we smashed her other goal of limiting out on Salmon.


We had to quickly get anything a Coho would eat out of the water this morning before they boxed out on them. 2 colors of FishUSA Stealthcore pulling Bay Rat Lures Fat Rats in orange, and 5 colors of FishUSA Stealthcore pulling 6" DW Spindoctors/A-TOM-MIK Coho flies did most of that damage. After a few hours without many King bites we made a few phone calls and we were West bound. Set up half way to the bar and the screen was amazing. The fish had turned off though. For the rest of the day we picked away at them. Most fish took A-TOM-MIK flies, or Familiar Bite Atlantic Herring strips. Fly colors that took fish were Glow Blue Hammer, Big Fin Glow, and Glow Stud. Divers fired from 150-250', downriggers from 50-150' down, and 300/400' coppers.



Saturday afternoon May 8th - Dave and Bryan from PA are back AGAIN! They just can't get enough of this Lake Ontario fishery, any I don't blame them one bit.


Our Saturday afternoon charter started out fairly slow. Three hours in and we had two bites. By 8pm we had all the action we could handle in an hour. It all started with a double on wire divers. One fish took an A-TOM-MIK Glow Stud behind a Green dot DW Spindoctor out 225', and the other took a chrome/dew paddle pulling an A-TOM-MIK Pro Am fly out 150'. The green dot would fire again while we were cleaning fish. Our deep downrigger fired pulling Familiar Bite Atlantic Herring down 100', and we had a DW Raspberry Dolphin go a few times on a 65' rigger with a Firecracker SS slider. Lastly, the 300' A-TOM-MIK copper pulling a new DW UV Rodfather took a Nice Salmon.



Sunday morning - Easily our best Salmon day of the season! 40+ bite day all while looking for that LOC derby fish with these guys from PA. Left the dock at sunrise and headed to the West where we would fish the 6 mile creek area to the red can in 65-170' of water.


Early morning it was all spoons with the DW UV Rodfather being "the man." This pattern was developed by Warrior spoons and we've ran it for years. We ultimately wanted it in a DW Mag version because we LOVE the action and size of this spoon. We've had it for about three weeks now, and it's killed a lot of Salmon. Other spoons that went were DW Sea Sick Waddler, and Raspberry Dolphin.


Once the sun came up we started to take more bites on Familiar Bite meat. 100-150' down on our Cannon Optimum downriggers is where we had it parked. We also had it on a 300' A-TOM-MIK copper that went a few times. We started with Atlantic Herring, but ended the day with Ballyhoo.
