  1. There is a private pay launch at the north end of February Oatka st, rat 10. They do have a ramp. You would have to paddle down the creek a ways before getting to the lake. I would google it to check if you would like to paddle that distance first. Other than that, south end, state launch.
  2. I know specifically of a good Crappie bite at a location in Keuka that occurs the third week in April yearly. This year, they had a smaller bite fully two weeks later than normal. The smallies will be on their beds for the opener if this keeps up. I’ll try again later this week
  3. I fished yesterday and looked at temps from Morgan marine in Penn Yan south to a couple miles past the college. Temps ranged from 53 at Morgan to 56 south. The lake is about two weeks late. Only a few smaller male sunfish in the shallows, a couple rock bass and no smallies yet. There is no green growth to speak of.
  4. Keuka ? No muskie there, but I have taken two pike there recently over 12 lbs. and, there are a lot of fish eating birds there including eagles. Could be one of them.
  5. Looks like a nice trip. I am thinking about going this week. Where did you launch?
  6. Doing the same thing Kevin. 40 yrs in classroom for me though. I read that sea bass stocks are up and the season was extended. Still a 5 fish limit though. It opens the 19th. I might be there in early June..
  7. I guess the south end will remain unknown territory for me. Thank you town of Urbana and New York State.
  8. Good news - launch is good. Bad news- fishing was bad.
  9. I did see boats entering the lake from the channel on Saturday. I would assume they launched at the ramp. I will know for sure tomorrow and leave feedback.
  10. Honeoye is up in the mid 40’s. About time.
  11. Wow, that would be great. Hope someone has some recent updates.
  12. Who fishes. I just drive around lakes taking temps for you guys Honestly,fishing for lakers is very good, fishing for panfish is very bad.
  13. 39 deg the entire length of the west branch on Keuka Lake yesterday. The east branch was the same 39 but the temp warmed up to a whopping 40.5 deg at the pump house at 2:00.
  14. It seems to me that you are drifting too fast. Get a minn kota and spot lock or if you don’t have spot lock, I used to keep a smaller minn kota in reverse heading up current. As far as jigging goes, 1 oz. round jig, white plastic, braided line, fleurocarbon leader.
  15. Glad you put some info out there. I had no idea that this was going on. I’ll try visit and check it out.
  16. Zach, my buddy Chief (ANDY) is looking for a terrova, PM me if you still have it and want to sell Thanks,
  17. I use the dragonfly 5 and Jig lakers in Keuka. You can easily see the lakers and jig on it. I bought the 5" screen because I have a smaller 16.5' boat. The good, the Navionics or C chip is included in the price. Your choice. The bad, The transducer looks like a giant bird beak back there and I am in constant fear of breaking it off when launching or retrieving. I have just replaced the bracket holding it on. but got it for free from raytheon. It was a $20 part if I had to pay.
  18. God bless you Esox. Your a hardier soul than me.
  19. Can you enlarge it for me too. I have to find my specs and can’t remember where I put them
  20. You could atleast take a picture right side up. I got a crink in my neck.
  21. That’s a good basic recipe. You can add whatever you like to it for your taste. Old bay, graded cheese, celery, onions etc....whatever.
  22. No, I crossed the lake w/o a problem in the morn,spudding all the way. Met up with a couple friends that showed up later on the west side and hitched a car ride back to my car at Standpipe. Worth it. Scored a nice parking spot on west side. friends are on Oneida now. Over a foot of good ice. They walked out from Sylvan beach. Nothing but pins so far
  23. Thats crazy, I did the drive around too. Did not want to be the only one out on Conesus and checked Silver. The ice at Silver looked like it was going fast so I did not stay that long. Lots of small perch in Silver, but they seem to have grown up since last winter. They are averaging 8 1/2", last year 7" tops. Next year might be good.
  24. Nice perch. Never fished that lake. Just got off Honeoye. The fish that were there the past few days disappeared. The only logical explanation is they were the victims of an alien invasion and are now headed out of our galaxy. Just when I thought I had this lake figured out.
  25. Fat Lady is getting up to the stage. Think I will get the boat out of storage soon.
