  1. We had tough fishing last week same troll. Didn't see any bait on East side. Wonder if moved up the lake? Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. We pulled in to tremane at 10 (much later than we like but have to drop kids at school then get boat at Seneca then head over the hill to Cayuga) and guys coming in from lake said they got skunked. We headed out and dropped lines a few hundred yards from the drop-off, trolled eat along the drop-off then North to Myers point. Fished from 40 to 150 feet all the way up using spoons in riggers and spoons and stick baits off the boards. Speed was anywhere between 1.8 and 2.8. switched lures up several times, even tried across the lake and fished West side south for a mile, then pulled lines at 2pm - never moved a rod the entire time. Usually we'd have at least 6, closer to a dozen, but this Is the first time in 2 years we got skunked on Cayuga. Very, very few marks and zero bait the entire trip. Normally we'd see bait and marks all around Myers. Discouraging, but it beat working, we have a bunch of really clean lures now, and it was a nice day for a boat ride!

  3. Seneca has been extremely tough fishing last couple of years. My boat is there and I trailer to Cayuga if that's any indication for you.... Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Way to go! Were you casting or trolling? Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Fished Friday out of Myers from 10-2. Not much debris at all. We had 4 lines on planner boards with stick baits out the whole time and they stayed completely clear. The water is still very stained, and it was our worst outing in a while. 1 Laker and 1 release in all that time. Tons of marks and bait so they're there. We tried everywhere from 20 ft to 300 covering water column with many different spoons and speeds from 1.8 - 2.8 and no one was interested. Usually our program at that area nets us around a dozen fish. The one Laker came in 50ft of water when driver wasn't paying attention and bounced a ball that was down 65 off the bottom for thirty seconds. Brought the ball up ten feet and he released - thought it was snag at first. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Cayuga

    What kind of jigs and stick baits worked for that type of fishing? Thanks Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Try and hitch a ride with guys that are experienced or take a charter. There are a few good charter guys on this site and they can help a lot. Much better, faster and easier to learn that way than bumping around in the dark and burning a lot of gas and using up all your fishing passes from the Mrs...

  8. That's exactly what happened when I tried to sharpen mine. The cutting angle on an auger blade isn't the same as a typical blade. Send them in to trade or get proper edge put onSent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Water clear to North around power plant Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. More grass than a phish concert all around Myers point but finally hooked one. Check out the grass on the downrigger line at left of picture Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Good job! Another satisfied customer! Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. We use seaguar too. I had bad experiences with vanish and heard same from others. No problems with 8 or 10lb pure flouro seaguar with drags set properly and not horsing in bigger fish. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. We use 8lb flouro leaders too - heavier line can spook fish in these clear waters Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Also, turn often. This allows you to see if they hit on the outside (faster lure speed) or inside of the turn (slower lure speed) then adjust accordingly. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Also, don't know if you're talking about speed at the surface or the ball, but these speeds should be at the ball. Down speed probe is vital.With the current in these finger lakes you can be doing 3mph on surface but closer to 1 at the ball. Mix up your trolling directions too. Some days we kill em going one way and nothing the other. They must face upstream Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
