These fish show up sporadically in L. Ontario, I have not heard of any in L. Erie. I have seen other pics., read reports, & personally seen these fish. I know for a fact one turned up on one of the piers at Olcott Harbor last fall, & I personally hooked 1 at Burt Dam last October that was only about 17 or 18 in., long- I lost it at my feet, but it definitely had a HUGE tail on it. They seem to be  regular steelhead w/ unusually large fins & tails. I read a thread on the Lakeontariounited board summer or fall of 2006 that had several different pictures & biologic theories about these fish, but it seems they predominantly show up in Western L. Ontario tribs with no real valid explanation.

Captain Chris Vogt
of U-Betcha Charters is holding a big 'bow he caught on day one of the recent 23rd. Annual Skip Hartman Memorial Pro-Am Tournament. The fish was caght off Wilson NY on a white E-chip dodger and fly. Vogt said with the lake being so flat and calm, with temps in the 80's it made fishing challenging. 

Prominent fisherwoman Connie Adams was the official Tournament Required "Observer"

Arkansan John Wallis,  was  fishing Lake Ontario this summer and he caught his first King! This is it!


Jake Welch and a nice lake trout he caught while trolling the Niagara bar on March 21, 2007.  Jake won the youth division of the ESLO derby last year in the lake trout division with a twelve and a half pounder he caught west of the bar and this was his first trip back to the bar to try for a bigger one, and that he did.  Besting last year by three pounds with this 15 pounder caught near the green can.  Jake uses a bottom bouncing trolling technique he perfected in the finger lakes, where his grandmother has a cottage.  Jake is 13 years old and has become known in our fishing circles as 'Laker Jaker'  He caught a 14 pound lake trout in Lake Erie this summer, but this is
 his biggest catch to date. 04/10/07
Congratulations Jake!
