  1. Keuka lake

    Me my son and my buddy were the first 2 vehicles there on Saturday. Like I stated in my last post we were on the road right in front of the chapel and saw the sign right at the top of the stairs. We saw foot prints in the snow on the point (on land) and none going out on the ice. I always try and do the right thing, especially when I am with my son. Trying to teach him the to respect land owners property (ask permission, pick up after people that disrespect the property, and so on.). Maybe if we waited around a while to see what others did we would have followed them out, but being the first ones there we didn't want to risk a ticket or towed vehicle. We will try it again but maybe go a little later if we are going to try the college again. Thanks for the info. Mike
  2. Keuka lake

    My son and I ended the day with just a few small perch. my buddy ended with 3 lakers and a couple younger fellas about 50 yards away limited out with 10 lakers. Just not our day. Ice was very thick, 12+ every where I drilled. Most of the Penn Yan arm is ice covered but the farther south you drive there were open water spots. With the warm temps this week I am sure that will all disappear and the only access will be from the park. Question about access. So I went up to the college and parked right in front of the Chapel and there is a sign right there that says no ice fishing or ice fishing access allowed? We tried to find the campus safety officer to ask but he was out doing his rounds. So we went back up and went out of the park. After fishing and on our way back down the lake you could see a bunch of people that obviously went out of the college area. If someone wouldn't mind sharing (or through PM) how it works up there it would be very appreciated. The drag sucked but it was a nice day out on the water.
  3. Keuka lake

    Just lost 1 in 23 foot of water. Pretty slow for me and my son. My buddy has been doing good not far from me? He just got a 5-6 pounder. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. Keuka lake

    Headed to the college in the morning with my son. Parking a problem at all? I assume the fishing report was after the snow fall and there are no ice issues? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Nice looking boat! Wish I didn't have mine, I would be all over this one.

  9. Night fishing

    Thanks for the tips. I was going to ask about taking a lantern. I would most likely go out late afternoon early evening to get set up then stay late to see what happens. I have heard about the holes opening up too. I am an advocate for using smaller auger for this reason. And especially because I take my kids most of the time and don't want them to step in a hole. Thanks again. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Night fishing

    Anyone do it? I have not done it at night and really thinking about trying it out this year, maybe this weekend. I am thinking in general about going to Lamoka as this is where I have quite a bit of access and I hear the crappie fishing can be pretty good. I have never caught one there although I have never specifically targeted crappies either. I know tip ups are not the preferred method I am going to try setting these up and putting glo sticks on the flags to see them from a distance in the dark. Any other tips or tricks for finding them on Lamoka would be appreciated. Thanks!
  11. Sodus Bay

    Wish I weighed that one!! Not saying what I thought it weighed but we got a few that day on Keuka. I fished Sodus this past Friday and I felt bad keeping some of the "10 inchers" I am seeing all these reports of. We kept a few but in no means did we keep our limits. All the people we saw out there was incredible, and if they are all keeping their limits of "10 inchers" it has to put a hurting on that system.
  12. Good day on Conesus!

    Nice report! I am kicking around the idea of going there for the first time with my son on Saturday. Never been there before but planning on starting out going out of Vitale (sp?) park. I don't know anything about it but going to be setting up some tip ups and jigging around. Wish us luck!!
  13. Seneca Seneca question

    Seneca question I hear a lot about the lake being slow and have heard it referred to as "dead" once or twice. When people talk about the slow fishing are they talking about just trout and trolling or all of the fishing in general? I am not a troller, yet, but I do have a couple old big jon captains packs my uncle had on a boat years ago and have been thinking about putting them on my boat. I have a cousin that has a permanent camp site at Smith Memorial park and I have been kicking around the idea of "giving" him my boat with the 1 condition that my son and I can come up and use it with him and his son as we want to. Due to my schedule with my kids and sports, the boat sits around 90% of the time and I figured he can get some use out of it! Would it be worth me having him store it up there and fishing Seneca or just keeping it at my place and use it to go where ever I want? Is the fishing that bad there for bass, panfish, pike, even trout? Thanks for any replies!!
  14. Little Sodus bay

    Yeah, caught enough in the bay we never made it out. I really would like to try jigging out there some time! I think the wind was wrong this week anyway? Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
