Capt. Matt Yablonsky of ...

Capt. Matt Yablonsky of Youngstown, owner of Wet Net Charters, knows that first hand all too well. With as much time as he spends on the water, it helps to save a few bucks by running his 9.9 horsepower Yamaha four-stroke outboard kicker motor as often as possible.
When he is running really tight to shore in shallow water or when fish might be wary due to boat pressure, he'll even use his Minn Kota trolling motor for forward movement.
"A stealthy approach is always better," says Yablonsky, a regular in the Lake Ontario Counties winner circles every spring. "Running a smaller boat has its advantages from being quieter to saving gas money. Stealth is important to fishing success, and that helps create repeat clientele."
Yablonsky is a Western Basin angler all the way. His focus is from the Niagara Bar to Olcott, a 20-mile stretch of water that is known for its spring salmon and trout fishing. While his forte might be spring salmon and lake trout, he also does very well with brown trout and steelhead.
...
When the water is on the clear side, Yablonsky will run more natural colors. When it's stained, fluorescent colors like chartreuse and fire tiger work best.
Warm water is the key to early season fishing, so Yablonsky will target the mouths of creeks where a warmer discharge will likely be flowing out into the lake. That water is generally off-color, too, and the darker water will heat up quicker. "I like to put my boat right on the edge of the dirty and clean water," insists Yablonsky, who won the Trophy Division of the Niagara County Pro-Am Salmon Team Tournament in 2012 out of his 21-foot Lund Baron aptly named Wet Net.
...
"I'm looking to create a pattern while trying to cover as much water as possible," says Yablonsky.
...
As waters start to warm, Yablonsky adjusts his program accordingly by sliding out to slightly deeper water. As temperatures hit the mid 40 degree range, he'll pull out the two inside planer boards and run two downriggers, using a deep diving Challenger or other body bait on the planer boards and Michigan Stinger spoons off the downriggers. The result will be more of a mixed bag that will include browns, steelhead, lakers and Coho salmon. Even the occasional king will grab hold and take off.
By the end of the month, the salmon program will start to kick in. Yablonsky will head straight to the drop off near the red buoy marker on the Niagara Bar as a starting point. The key is the river water coming out of the mighty Niagara. The green water is the warmer water coming from Lake Erie attracting baitfish like smelt and emerald shiners. He'll find king salmon starting to concentrate in the 60 to 80 foot depths at the drop off, a huge ledge that extends for miles. It can drop off from 60 feet to over 200 feet in a short surface area.
"Wind is a huge factor when it comes to where that river water will flow," says Yablonsky.
...
Getting back to the salmon program, Yablonsky starts out running two wire divers off each side, a high and a low.
...
"Less can be more in the spring, whether you are talking tackle or boat size," insists Yablonsky. Based on his success on the water after 14 years of fishing, he's usually right. For more information on Yablonsky, check out his website at www.getthenetwet.com or call him at 716-550-0413.

Matt taught be to be quick on the rod because that usually means a fish over 20 pounds. He was right! This is the biggest fish of my life and the first time I've ever fished a derby. It took about 15 minutes to bring it to the boat. While she fought the fish, Matt picked up everything else and was ready to motor to Petroy Marine in Youngstown to weigh the fish in as soon as possible, praying it would be a big one.
The two derby anglers were using three-way rigs to drift silver and chartreuse K-9 Kwikfish lures on the bottom in 36 feet of water. "We put a lot of time into the derby with our Team Wet Net," said Yablonsky, operator of Wet Net Charters (www.getthenetwet.com). The two other team members, John Shay and Mike Barry, both of Tonawanda, ended up with winning fish, along with Yablonsky.
...
Yablonsky finished in sixth place with a 21 pound, nine ounce lake trout. The foursome will be splitting up all the prize money four ways.

In the Cystic Fibrosis event, Capt. Matt Yablonsky played his cards right by targeting salmon and trout off the mouth of the river at the drop off on the Niagara Bar. He went north seeking out active fish - heading out deep to the corner first and then settling in at the 250 to 300 foot line in the top 75 feet of water. He caught a mix of salmon and trout on spoons and flasher-fly to take his fish that combined well with the bass he caught the day before. He was the top captain in the event, fishing with the Washington Mills team. In the harbors, warm water action has been good for a mix of pike, bass and panfish right now.

Capt. Steve Drabczyk and Capt. Matt Yablonsky both led fishing teams to fish in the five pound class on several occasions.

Grand Champion Angler was Thomas Miloszewski of Chicago, Illinois and runnerup was Mark Gonas of North Tonawanda - both under the guiding instruction of Yablonsky.
