  2. Today I was on Keuka from 10 to 2:30 with my neighbor..nothing again,trolled south from branchport around the bluff then south then back north..I just wanted to say thank you to the boat ( red open bow 20' 2 guys ) who stopped by to tell us where the thermocline was according to their x4..gave us some info, advice and chit chat and continued on their way.Its great to have such nice people around sharing information to achieve our goals.if you are on this site..thank you..



  3. I trolled west arm from 9 to 1 today not a thing bit..I tried riggers, thermocline rig, changed speeds,lures nothing again.My neighbors both were out also in their boats,same times and caught 1 small laker..amazing for 3 boats..I'll try again tomorrow morning..

  4. Gents/Ladies....I fished Keuka this morning solo ( Sk8man  claimed he had a Honey Do List :lol: )....I left our hoist at 8:30 on the Branchport arm and headed  north of the bluff towards the state park concentrating on the east side...I actually marked fish this time out,much more than in the past 2 weeks.I threw out the thermocline rig and began trolling 2.0 marking fish in about 90 feet over 110 bottom..kept the thermocline deep with various spoons and speeds and not one hit in 4 hours..I continued north to the park then over to the east side and headed south..NOTHING I trolled between 90 and 150 marking fish varying depths..I then jigged for an hour marking fish on the east side just south of the park in 90 feet of water on drop offs that I repeatedly drifted back over and over hoping as I was marking fish..I then headed back empty handed..did a few honey do list items of my own at the lake place then disgusted..went to Fishy Business did what any outdoorsman would do..bought more hoping to better my oppurtunities..actually had 2 reels run with blood Run flea for downriggers..fleas werent to back today on my gear. A great day out anyway..Not many boats only saw one other fisherman.



  5. Welcome Al..Hang awhile and You will pick up a ton of knowledge from these guys.I lurk on the great lakes forums also trying to get info as well.The people here are incredible..non selfish and always willing to lend a hand.I am sure someone will take you up on your hvac knowledge..I have been fortunate enough to gain a wealth of knowledge here as well as make some friends and enjoy the great fishing we have here..best of luck to you



  6. As Les said..this small business owner did spend quite a bit of time with us..sharing techniques as well as equipment used.he does have a great selection, of course geared towards the finger lakes, and  he is more than willing to set up and rig anything you need without breaking the bank..I am looking to dig out my other downrigger rods after remodelling my basement to have him put blood run flea line on them after todays BOUT on Keuka. It is nice to see the so called " old school small business" within reach.there are several small business listed on this site that I am sure are just as competent ..not affiliated with Fishy business..just a local fisher guy ..thanks to all for your support.

  7. I trolled the branchport arm from the state park south to the bluff from 0730 to 1130 on Sunday..my neighbor trolled mostly north from the park 3 miles south then back..we both got nothing..lots of fish near the state park in 160 ft of water but none biting that we found..tried several lures off downriggers varied speeds etc..nothing..at least the weather was nice..anyones guess as to why they stopped biting..they were fine until this passed week..just keep trying
