Lake trout fishing continues to be OK here out of Oswego as we wait for the June transition to reach maturity. That being said, some very huge brown trout have been taken. In fact, during the Atommik Challenge, brown trout in excess of 19lbs. have been harvested. A few kings have also started to show up as well. Here are a few pics of some of our successful clients over the last few days when the weather has allowed us to get out.
The last couple of trips have been producing lake trout and keeping the women and children happy. Deep water bouncing bottom with cowbells has been the ticket. Special thanks to Capt. Kevin Davis from catch the drift for helping us to dial in and save the day.
Ace Charters is in the water here in Oswego to start our 2016 season after finishing up a great season on the Hudson River chasing striped bass.
Hoping to chase and catch brown trout, one of our favorite passions in June, is just not happening. Unfavorable wind conditions causing gin clear water and colder temperatures are most likely the causes. So, we have switched to plan B, and have been fishing for Lake Ontario’s Lake Trout.
On our first outing, we managed to boat seven nice lakers with a nicer one caught by long time fishing buddy John Contral
On day two, John and Justin Shutts boated several lakers as well deciding to keep two of them for the table. We did have a larger laker on for sometime, but as luck would have it, it went away.
West winds are expected by mid week and hopefully will change the conditions to favor brown trout fishing. One other note, bait fish have been showing up more frequently on the fishfinder and where there’s bait, sooner or later there will be predatory fish,too.
Here is our Hudson river striper report. Fishing on the Hudson River for striper bass has been good to stellar most days. Over the last two weeks our charter clients have boated four stripers over the magic 40″ mark along with mostly all others falling in the 32-39.5″ range. We have had several double digit days as well. Here are some photos:
Hudson River striper report from our Fishing charters
As the season progresses we will do our best to include more Hudson river striper fishing reports As many of you may know, our fishing consists mainly of catching our own bait via River Alewives or Blue back herring and then fishing these baits for striped bass.
We will be adding more photos into our gallery as time permits.
