What are you guys using to catch the salmon and lakers? Ever used lake clear wobblers or green mountain grabbers?
I use spoons (Sutton for the bows in the finger lakes work in Ontario too tho) and flasher fly combos for salmon and spin and glows for Lakers. I will have to Google those lures always looking for more stuff lol

Anyone who wants to expand their laker tackle should look into gambler rigs (Google gamblerrigs.Com)
I am no way associate and have never met the guy but have talked to him on face book and another forum I am on and I will tell you his rigs catch Lakers consistently. I was shocked I didn't pick one up on Canandaigua first time I have run his rigs and not caught at least one.

Just Google them the wobblers I run very similar things behind spin and glows I just call them cowbells. May have to try and pick some of those up to try as well.

The grabbers look alot like the worm harnesses I run for eyes when I go out for them (rarely) hopefully will do that more too lol not enough time

I will look that up. The lake clear wobblers are spoons just set up to a swivel hook on one end and 12-18 inches of line and a hook with a night crawler and troll. Green mountain grabbers are great for walleye. Thanks for the info.

Also for walleye I use bottom bouncers the poor mans downriggers with steel leader and a rapalas. Also have been very successful.

Always willing to help out a fellow outdoorsmen were a dying breed with all the technology and the kids not wanting to get out and explore. You fish lake Ontario a lot I want to bowfish it so bad I was near suny Oswego campus at a park and seen the biggest carp ive ever seen.

Today was the last morning fishing with my nephew, we have had a blast the past few weeks. Next year I hope he spends the whole summer. I lost count of how many bass we caught and released this morning but it was enough that my iPhone doesn't recognize my thumb lolad7f11c488d6bc17f3eb1a8189bd8196.jpg

Don't recognize those names.  For lakers, we use cowbells and peanuts or spinners.  Of course, we catch the occasional laker when chasing salmon and steelies too.  But generally we troll faster (2.5-3.0 vs. 1.0-2.0) for salmon and steelies and are not bottom bouncing like when targeting lakers.  Salmon and steelies are usually a combo of various spoons and some dipsies running spin doctors and flies or cut bait (we use the fake stuff).  Gamblers rigs do work well for lakers.

Ill never get tired of watching a bobber. Of course as a card carrying fly-fishing snob Im required to call it an "indicator"

What size boat you using? I just bought a 2010 bass tracker 16ft deep v 50hp mercury. Used only 40 hours on motor. Little small for that big lake.

We went salmon fishing out of Port Ontario Pulaski yesterday and had a great day on the water.  Boated 11 fish all together, with about 6 strikes that we missed out on.   Pictured are 8 of the largest fish, but all fish were processed and are in the freezer.  Looking forward to smoking one of those giant filets soon!
