There is a poll on the top of the page. Itís a poll where you can only vote once from an IP address so itís legit. It just asks who you would pick for president. We need people to vote on this thing so I can send in our poll to compare to others. So if you havenít voted, clicky click, please. Thanks.

Good Morning, it is Saturday, August 27th. The air is perfect Ė no wind and just a fantastic day to enjoy the end of the hottest August on record. Itís feast or famine out here on the west end. Some had an excellent day fishing yesterday. Some had a sad day yesterday. I saw a lot of big kings hanging off that scale here at the Boat Doctors Ė but only 2 that made the board. The browns must of scattered off to a new secret location because the people who usually target browns werenít bringing anything to the scales. It will light up any day now with everything. I am getting mixed stories so I really donít know what to say that would be accurate as far as the fishing goes.

When fishing is tough, itís meat time. That means you make sure you put some of the N & D cut herring strips somewhere to bring those fat boys to the boat. Itís called ďThe Good StuffĒ for a reason and the stuff is lighting up Lake Ontario on both ends. Itís Pacific herring which makes a huge difference when you are using bait. Because chinook salmon were brought here from the pacific; the stuff just smells like home sweet home to them. You will have better luck if you DONíT rebrine it and use it like it comes out of the package. You donít want to destroy the scent by over-brining. Itís available at most shops on Lake Ontario. There are some shops that carry the new whole herring also and salmon candy (anchovies).

Right now on those big ones, most are running a meat program with flasher/fly and spoon combo sets. Everything seems to be happening from the Niagara Bar to a mile or two past Wilson. The lake is going to be jamming with anglers today.

If it gets too packed down there near the bar, try looking around the lake at some offshore fishing in 500 to 600 for nice pockets of fish. There might even be some sweet action in 180 to 300 fow, down deep. If struggling is happening, check that mid-water. Those steelies and kings are out there, but everyone says that 25K king is inside somewhere between 60-80 fow either here on the west end or down on the east end near Pulaski. Froggy and glows are hot right now.

Itís going to be a hot humid one again today. That chance of rain will be there with just a thick cloud of moisture that makes you wish you didnít wear denim today. Whatever you are doing, enjoy it. Weíll know more when all those happy faces come in to weigh their fish later today.
