Gary (Kongo) that he was heading out with a couple of friends, and did I want to go….uh, yeah! One of the guys wanted to catch a few steelhead, so he even broke out the 60lb copper!
Had to wade thru lots of silver bass (again) but boated 5 walleye and 3 steelhead.
Got a call from a long time Lake Ontario friend, Bob Songin (Reel Excitement Charters out of Oak Orchard), who was going to be in town for a couple of days and wanted to get his dad out for walleye.
I couldn’t go early, so we opted to head out around 12:30. Was starting to kick from the northeast, and shortly after we set up, the wind and waves really got going. We banged into that for about 40 minutes or so out to 85 ft, and then decided the best thing to do would be to head toward the harbor and ride with the waves. Good choice!
We ended up with 7 nice walleye over the next hour or so. I half heartedly suggested we pull lines and bang back out, but by then it was 5 footers, and clearly not a good idea to try that!
Lately, spoons have been the ticket! We only ran a 5 rod spread due to the conditions, and had 5 of the 7 eyes on Yeck Spoons in “Alibi” and “Raspberry Dolphin”. 60 and 68 foot rigger and 300 copper. Also took 2 on a 175 walker diver with a renosky.
Doug got the biggest one!
