Owasco 7/1

Recommended Posts

Hit up owasco yesterday with a buddy to try and give the new depth raider a try. Didnt get out till about noon and was greeted with a pretty good SW wind. Was hot so the wind actually was nice.


Got a new to me depth raider so gave it a shot for the first time. Not completely sold on it yet, but worked the east side of lake from about 1-4pm with our biggest (5.6 lb) coming from 80' down on the bottom. Fleas were atrocious though. If you went more than 20 min in the water you'd have a hard time reeling it in without clogging your rod eyes.


Moved over to the east side of the lake as the sky got a bit darker and found good marks and hungrier fish. Finished the day by boating 7 lakers total and 4 of them came in our last hour of fishing on the west. Trout alien cowbells took all but one fish. Everything caught the fleas though as they weren't near as picky.

I’ve also been using blood run 30 LB on Cayuga and compared to the old flea line I had the blood run works 10 times better for keeping fleas off… like said not all but definitely helps

trouthunter, I use 30lb test. I put about 150yrds on my reel and then tie at least a 20ft Seaguar fluorocarbon 10lb test leader connected to the sea flea with a double uni knot.  For Lake Ontario I use the same setup but use a 17lb test leader. i also use a double uni knot to connect the sea flea to the line that is on my reel. I dont put the sea flee on until the first week in June. Good Luck
