My 2016 / 17 Winter Florida season has come to an end. Time to get the warm clothes back out and chase Spring steelhead. I want to thank all of our guests that visited us in our southern paradise. We had a fabulous fishing season and the the weather of course is a given about everyday. By far my best snook season ever for size and numbers and all of our other target species were plentiful. It is never too early to book a winter get-a-way. If you want to talk details, contact me anytime.
Controlled depth fishing, also known as donwrigging, trolling long-lining or just boat fishing, is a technique enjoyed by many, yet others say it is boring and not really fishing.
The naysayers complain that the boat catches the fish and the mate, or person running the back sets the hook and you just reel it in. Well if that is how you feel, you haven't spent any time on the High Adventure.
I run a fun, easy, hands on, fast paced charter operation and I encourage client participation. You want to grab the rod, no problem, you want to learn how to set lines, run riggers and learn what makes a trolling rig tick, well climb aboard.
Hell you can even net your buddy's fish, if he let's you!
My Penn Yan will splash into the water in late April and I will be on it until early September.
Give me shout, we will lock in a day or two and perhaps you to will be proud to call yourself a Lake Ontario troller! www.highadventurefishing.com
It’s a Wrap!
My 2016 winter steelhead season has come to an end. While we struggled some during early November, eventually the ironheads found their way home and the river is in good shape for the chozen frozen to have their way with them over the next few months.
My guiding business will now take me south until late March and I will return to chase steelhead into mid May.
In the meantime, if you want to chase snook, reds, sea trout, sheepshead, snapper and more, you can find me via e-mail. Phone, text, instagram or facebook.
Thank you for your continued support of my passion and a special thanks to my wonderful wife Shelley for keeping me focused and positive.
Best Fishes, Merry Christmas and God Bless!
Well November is over and what a crazy month it was. Warm Temperatures. Heavy snow and now flood water is bearing down on us. So what about the fishing you say. Well it stated out pretty slow but the fish have been slowly trickling in. We are definitely missing a year class of fish but we are still picking away each day.
Eggs and Beads under floats are keeping us busy. White and Blue eggs are working best for me. Keep a close eye on the river and all the streams on the eastern basin. They are high and dangerous but when they drop it will be game on!
We have Cift Certificates available for Christmas!
Check us out on Facebook and instagram
Stay safe and Best Fishes
November 10 and I have two things on my mind. Chasing steelhead and getting in a treestand. The latter, unfortunately will have to wait for me because there are shiny trout to be caught! You have to move around, change up baits, be patient and don't expect to hook up every 20 minutes. Enjoy the time on the water but be ready. You are only gong to get a few shots. Its not like you miss one and then say oh, there will be another, because there may not be. Paying attention to detail is more important than ever when the fishing is challenging. Re-tie often.Check your leader, look for windknots, triple check the drag. Have fun and stay safe.
Great Weather, good water flows and wonderful guests but we are still working hard and covering a lot of water to get into fish.
I am booked solid for the rest of the year. I have days in Florida available for those interested in January and February.
I also have April 22 & 25 open for steelhead and also some days left in May for browns.
Best Fishing and God bless and please vote on Tuesday. www.highadventurefishing.com
I know I have been slacking on reports but the seven days a week for months on end has definitely caught up with me.
It looks like the drought is over, the river and the creeks to the north are running high while the streams out west didn't get the rain and are still pretty low.
As this water recedes look for fantastic fishing just about everywhere. There are still a lot of fresh salmon that entered the river in the last few days.
Yesterday, as we fished the bottom end and watched the water rise there was lots and lots of fresh Kings going by us in the muddy water and occasional fin a splash or silhouette was all you could see but there was lots of them. We were seeing a few more trout each day and I am certain there will be a ton of them in the upper river within a few days. Other then the high water which many do not like,(not sure why) all looks good for next month. It is getting colder and the blue jeans and sneaker crowds will go away and the bridge traffic will be gone but the time is now to get serious and get fishing! I have December 7, 8, 12, 13 open if anyone wants it. www.highadventurefishing.com
Columbus Day weekend and the fish are here. The bottom end of the river has loaded up thanks to some much needed rain that lasted throughout the day. If you are not catching fish you are in the wrong spot. Move around, regardless of what the negative people say there are a lot of fish in this river. Go find them.
The fish that came in today are moving up river fast even under low water conditions. www,highadventurefishing.com
It is that time of year. More salmon are entering the river daily and the lake fishing is still on fire. I would be making plans to get here in the next few weeks as it is going to bust wide open anytime. We are looking at some cooler Fall like temperatures and this should bring the motherload into the river. Right now fish are spread out in the lower and middle river yet a bunch of Coho and some kings have made it to Altmar. I am booked for the season but I can seat you up with a good guide so give us a shout and get hooked up! Please support our areas businesses by shopping local as the season is short and so many count on the next couple of weeks to make it or break it. Thank you and Best fishes!! www.highadventurefishing.com
Its that time of year. I am switching gears from the lake to the river. It has been a gorgeous summer in the Lake O region with plenty of warm days but the wind did challenge us quite a bit. when it was all said and done I would say that July and my last two weeks were by far the best times of the season. We caught fish in between but again weather plagued and punished us every few days. As Capt Tony Buffa said time after time; How long will we be punished LOL.
Lake fishing is still red hot from Oswego east and north to the dunes.
Top producers the last few days Echip flashers and Atomik flies
Pig pen with a mirage in the sun
Valium with a green glow
White mt dew with a hammer or 106x
Don't be afraid to fish the warm water 58 to 64 .They are there and they will bite.
River fishing is still very slow but I hope to update this tomorrow with god news after a cool night tonight. Stay tuned. Best Fishes and God Bless.
