Spring 2023- brown trout, lake trout and perch out of sodus bay

Spring 2023- brown trout, laker trout and perch out of sodus bay 

April 30- persistent south winds have trashed the shoreline bite; however, the offshore bite for kings and coho has heated up- from 100 to 200 fow.  Lakers are in 120-140, and there’s even a few steelies around.  Surface temps were down to 41 on shore- they were 50+ last week.
Perch are about done, but the rock bass are about to get fired up around the docks.

April 27- brown fishing remains excellent, when conditions are good!  There have been intermittent  kings around, and the laker fishing is good 100-130 with cowbells and grease traps.  The weather this weekend will be crappy for boating- but likely good for fishing.  The perch are about spawned out and on their way to the lake soon.  Pike and walleye season starts may 1- they can be found along weed edges and near drop offs near the islands.

April 8 2023- The bay is completely ice-free, and docks are going in around the bay. Anglers have found perch in the bays, and they should be here for at least a few more weeks.  Out in the lake, the trolling has been good so far. There’s a good class of young brown trout around, as well as some coho.  Find the warm, colored water and cast small spoons or troll stickbaits for them.  As is often the case this time of year, you should be able to find lake trout from about 80 feet of water and deeper, if you want!

There’s a whole stable of excellent charters to choose from if you want to get out!

Remember that in small boats, you must use a life jacket until may 1st- it’s the law!  The bay water temp is only in the 40s so please be careful out there!!


Summer 2022- August Fishing for Kings and Browns on Lake Ontario

Summer 2022- August Fishing for Kings and Browns on Lake Ontario

August 9th- Fishing has been good for kings, though their location varies quite a bit from day to day.  One day they’ll be in the nearshore waters (100-200) and others they’ll be way offshore (500+).  Wind direction and water temp generally dictates location of the kings.  They’re biting on cut-bait, flasher-fly, and spoons.  Browns are definitely around, usually less than 100 FOW, where you can find 50-something degree water near the bottom.  We saw some huge scores for the sodus pro am, with big boxes of nice kings a fairly common occurrence.  Expect more action in the nearshore waters as we approach September- 80-140 will been prime habitat the last few weeks of August!

Our Buddies at Hell Yeah Charters and Honey Hole Charters have been doing well.  Give them a shout if you want to get out.

Summer 2022 salmon, lakers, browns and bass

June 18- fishing has been slow the last few weeks, but there are signs that it is turning around.  West winds are starting to bring us some silver!  The last few days, Hell Yeah charters have caught some nice silvers, including kings.  There are Lakers to be had in 100-140.  And the brown trout bite should get going again soon.  The thermocline is getting set up so finding temp (low 50s) near the bottom will be key.

in the bay, bass fishing opened this weekend.  There should be bass and pike along the weed lines
