Me and my buddies did our annual Spring Kings trip.

 

Wed 5/18 - rolled into town from Pittsburgh, checked into the motel, launched in Olcott around 430 PM til 8PM.  Fished a lot of water from previous years successes, but was pretty dead this year.  Went 4 for 8 on all smaller ones, all spoons, none in the box.

 

Thurs 5/19 - launched from Wilson at 430 AM.  Went a few miles NW of the harbor, set down in 140' and stared catching fishing before the last line was in the water around 530 AM.  Glow spoons and FF in the morning on 300 copper and outside divers, UV spoons and FF in afternoon.  190-200 outside divers, riggers at 55-65.  Fished til 130 or so, ended up 22 for 28 with 11 nice kings in the box.  No giants, but a good number of mid-teens.  Stayed around 100-160 FOW all day.

 

Fri 5/20 - launched from Wilson again at 430.  Same area as the day before, started in 160 and trolled between there and 240 or so.  More of a spoon bite, but did take a number of good kings on FF.  No meat bite to speak of.  Same depths as the day before.  Stayed on the water til 2:30, finished 21 for 28 with a 17 lber and a few other mid teens fish, but many small ones mixed in.  Killed 10 fish in the box.  Some nasty weather blew through around 11, but it calmed back down enough for a few early afternoon bites.

 

Sat 5/21 - very strong W wind in the morning, slept in, didnt launch til 6:30 and started the slow ride out to the same area as the days before.  Went further west and started on long East trolls.  Slow pick, mostly all meat bite.  took a few kings on mag DW rod father and roy boy.  Rig going the most was a chrome green dot stinger sidekick with attomik stud twinkie rig.  our big fish came on that one.  A front blew through and blew us off around 2 PM.  it got nasty quick and we had a wet ride back.  Ended up with one 20.7 lber (DEC weighed it at the Fort Niagara station), one 10 lb er, and a couple teenagers in the box.  11 for 16 on fish and hits and killed six.

 

Overall great trip.  For the out of towners, only cleaning station we found open was fort niagara. Best baits of the trip were: Spoons - Mag DW Rodfather, FF - Black Green Dot SD with a Shred Pro Am fly, Meat - Sidekick with Atommik Stud twinkie rig.

you guys certainly deserved every fish you got. You put in the time as parts of those days were rough!  I think Saturday was the roughest I have fished in a long long time.  I am sure Saturday when those charters saw my little rec boat head out at 530am into those waves they questioned our sanity!!! Pounding back to Wilson thru 5’ waves from olcott made me question it also. We were safe just used a lot of gas!

 

For us we found no good consistent patterns but did end up with 3 fish in the 13-14# range. Friday black and purple spoons took our kings in 250fow then Saturday it was black and orange in the same water as you. Baby kings came on everything….. FF and spoons all colors!  Cohos had no pattern except for the top 20’ of water. Had one hit as I was setting the rigger release!

 

Thanks for sharing info on the water!
