Big Keuka Laker
turp replied to cdgn troller's topic in Finger Lakes DiscussionI saw you weigh that fish and figured you had first place wrapped up. 7lbs is a very good catch on keuka. To see two over 12 was very impressive. Well done! [ Post made via iPhone ]
turp replied to Guppy35's topic in Finger Lakes DiscussionI usually fish the Branchport end but I assume the south end is not much different. For lots and lots of lakers I run short cores off the boards with various stick baits. If you are running wire set them somewhere deep, one with a green combo and one with a glow white combo. This time of year the most active (feeding, I should say hungry lol) lakers are between 20 and 50 ft down. There is the Avon Anglers tournament tomorrow that launches from the state park if you are interested.
Woodville boat launch on Canandaiqua
turp replied to HPORT's topic in Finger Lakes DiscussionFor the last few weeks i've been launching my 22.5 sabre there and haven't had any issues. Although the PY is probably a little heavier than my aluminum. Is the PY an inboard or IO? If its an inboard use extreme caution. It's quite shalllow there.

turp posted a topic in Finger Lakes DiscussionHit the south launch at first light this am. Started over by the white rock but way too may surface weeds for my liking. We did pick a laker from that side on a w/w spin doc with a siggs mirage down 75'. Hit 180 fow and went up the middle. A steady pick of rainbows anywhere from 50' down to 100' down. Mt dew spin with a packer took a dandy bow on the wire out 300' on a #3 setting. Black and gold sticks on the cores with 1 to 3 ounces of weight were very hot today. All and all a great day to be on the water. [ Post made via Android ]
Canandaigua Double Grand Slam
turp replied to Pete Collin's topic in Finger Lakes Discussionawesome day! congrats
turp replied to FLXTroutman's topic in Finger Lakes DiscussionMy pleasure Mike. Thats a great looking bow. We had one heck of a laker bite just south of the condos early between 60 and 75' down. Then the bows took took over after the sun came up. After we spoke I headed down to the white rock and picked up a couple more. Some guy trolling solo must have never heard of leadcore and cut right behind me and decided to take my two 10 colors for a ride! Good thing there's a 1000' of backer [ Post made via Android ]

7/22 oak orchard
turp posted a topic in New York Fishing Reports - Lake Ontario (South Shore)Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:violent release ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):7/22 Time on Water: Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits:a bunch Total Boated:a bunch Species Breakdown:browns, kings, steelhead Hot Lure: Trolling Speed: Down Speed: Boat Depth: 120 to 200 Lure Depth: 40 to 80 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== We took my buddy and his two kids out for a quick trip this am. We set up between port and the pumphouse and headed north. At 130fow our screen lit up but we couldnt pull a fish out of there. At 170fow our 40' rigger with a DW firecracker starts going and on the other end was a porky brown!!! As soon as I got that rigger reset it pops again with another brown?!?!?!?! We noticed alomost the entire fleet was working an area in approx. 250fow. We went through there and did manage to pop a couple steelhead and a couple teenagers but my buddies kids wanted to hook into a few big guys. Back into that 130 to 150 range we went. Once we got on a sw troll through there riggers and coppers started going nuts!! We had a few doubles and one triple on matures. My buddies 12 year old daughter did manage to land the best steelhead I have ever had the pleasure of netting!! The battery in my digital scales was dead so I used the manual ones I have and this pig came in just under 20lbs!! The DW glow frog, siggs 72 monty combo and siggs 42 second were our best producers. Wires at 160 to 180, coppers at 250' to 300' and riggers from 40' to 70' were our best.
The Oak or Sodus
turp replied to Hookedup's topic in New York Fishing Reports - Lake Ontario (South Shore)I don't know much about sodus but the Oak has been insane from the 24.5 line to the 26.5 for the last few weeks.
oak orchard 6/18
turp posted a topic in New York Fishing Reports - Lake Ontario (South Shore)Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:Violent Release ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Time on Water: Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction:w Waves: Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: Total Boated: Species Breakdown:lakers, kings, browns, steelhead and an atlantic Hot Lure: Trolling Speed: Down Speed: Boat Depth:60 to 130 Lure Depth: ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== We did a little pre fathers day trip with my wifes uncle and cousin, a friend and his dad and my dad and I. Saturday was an excellent day to be fishing out of the Oak. We started the day off in front of the pumphouse in 60FOW with lots of bait and hooks. Before the second rigger was set my wifes cousin was hooked into his first Lake O fish. After a short fight a beautiful brown hit the deck and the young man was all smiles. We stayed in close between 60 and 80fow for a couple hours till the fish started to scatter. Our best set ups in there were a siggs crinkle mirage behind a white spin doc, dw deathwish and a 42 sec combo. As the sun came up and the traffic increased we slid out to 125fow and started hitting kings on the cores with dw ss coyotes. The siggs 72 monty took a few shots on the wire out 160' but to my dismay we were 0 for 5 on the wires today We finished the day with lakers, kings, browns, steelhead and an atlantic. Too bad the atlantic was undersized because he went belly up as soon as I released him. That fish really had no chance at survival. We kept a few fish for the smoker and grill and released the rest. Anyways...it was awesome to have three father son combos on the boat today. Happy belated fathers day to all the dads out there!!
oak orchard -big fish friday
turp replied to yukonstu1's topic in New York Fishing Reports - Lake Ontario (South Shore)I'll second that part about capt. Bob being a class act. Although I had never personally met the man he came up to our dock friday morning and offered his boat to us for the pro/am. He had heard through the grapevine that we had an engine issue. It's great to see there are still people like this around. Thanks again for the offer capt. Bob. [ Post made via Android ]

hemlock/canadice 5/21 & 5/22
turp posted a topic in Finger Lakes DiscussionSat. morning we decided to hit hemlock for a relaxing day of fishing. Our spread consisted of 2- 5 color cores on walleye boards with sticks, a top line on a board with a stick, two riggers and a wire. We ended up with two smallmouth that hit the top line in close to shore. They hit a black/silver j-9. We also took 5 lakers that were the perfect size for the grill that evening Our best baits on them were a sutton "88" and a ss glow frog with a silver back. Both of those spoons were as tight to the bottom as possible out in the middle of the lake. I was kinda dissapointed that the 5 color cores didnt fire at all today!! Those are usually my best weapon in the spring on the finger lakes Sunday afternoon my buddy and I decided a quick trip to canadice was in order. We got the boat launched around 4 and quickly we were into fish. The screen was very active right in front of the launch in about 75fow. Most of the fish were deep and feeding! Sunday's spread was two riggers, a wire and a 5 color on a walleye board. The core had a gold/black stick and finally saw some of that top 25fow action The riggers had a sutton "88" and a sutton "71" fished very close to the bottom. All in all it was a very good afternoon to be on canadice. btw....both lakes had surface temps that ranged from 56 to 60 deg. Here's a pic of our biggest from sunday.
