  1. I have used Tristan Keegan owner of Upstate Marine on route 415 near the old drive in theater on several occasions. He's always done a good job for me on my 60hp Merc and 15 hp Johnson. His number is 607-368-1883.
  2. Thanks for the info. Havn't fished Sodus in years but want to give it a try soon. Used to (back in the early '80s) have a ball casting Cleos into 3 fow out to 20 fow.
  3. Is it safe to assume that the ice is off Sodus Bay? Is the ramp next to the channel useable.? Want to give it a try next week.
  4. Superhawk, This morning I called the owner of Jakes Marina on Keukas west side to see if he was open. He's still in Florida but said he'd instructed one of his workers up here to remove the barrels blocking his ramp,so he's open.
  5. Bent Pole, Where did you find the above mentioned closure of ALL launch ramps, both public and private,? I read all the Parks info online and couldn't find the source. Would please provide the website to this info. Thanks in advance.
  6. According to WETM TV the state launches ARE open. Go to "mytwintiers.com" for verification.
  7. Got two 18 inchers yesterday pulling rig, both were empty.
  8. Has anyone had success ice fishing for bluegills using plain old garden worms? Yesterday three of us fished a small farm pond for two hours, only got a couple on spikes on our jigs then switched over to using a third of a garden worm and ended up with 39 big 'gills.Never heard of using worms icefishing and got to thinking if this was a fluke on this pond only or if others have found success other places using worms. H
  9. Status of the walleye population? Been fishing Keuka since 1962 an have NEVER heard or seen a walleye in the lake. Has anybody?
  10. So, tell us how you did. Curious minds want to know.
  11. Fished rig for a couple hours, no hits. Only marked a dozen or so on the fishfinder. Then tried for perch for an hour, no perch. Surface temp was 77 and no fleas.
  12. Urbana town clerk is Kelly Harris, 607 569 3743.
  13. Sorry, thought I'd lost the partial post from yesterday. They're selling 100 key cards for $150 for the year. She said they'd only sold two or three--surprise there. You can call the Urbana town clerk for details.
  14. I called the Urbana Town Clerk two weeks ago to discuss the Town ramp access. She told me the town is selling 100 key cards for
  15. How about sending a couple million sawbellies `to Keuka. Not many left over there.
  16. Best weather info I've found is ---wunderground.com/MAR/LO/043.html Scroll down the page to choose what area of LO you want to see/ Gives forecasts for several days out with wind and wave forecasts along with current lake conditions. Hope this helps.
  17. Is the water clear right up to the shoreline or colored out a ways? Hopeing for clear water before long so we can cast Cleos into 2-3 fow for browns. Thanks for your insight..
  18. Frogger----funny--but true. I heard that last year someone in Elmira was selling them for a buck apiece. How times ( and prices) change. They ARE a tough critter. In a mornings fishing Keuka for perch and bass we usually only use three or four apiece. Bass will chew them up much faster than perch.
  19. Keuka is hot right now. 1/8 oz jigs and dobson are the ticket.
  20. Just wondering under what conditions you run 45-60 oz rig weights? For Keuka I use 20 oz and Seneca up to 30 oz depending on currents, I also use copper pipes for molds, works great.
  21. Had a good morning on the lake catching perch. Three of us kept 22 perch from 8-11 inches, three jumbo sunnies and a 13 inch smallmouth. Fished the southeast side in 25 fow .Could have used a breeze for a nice drift, had to use the electric most of the morning to create one.
  22. How's the perch fishing been on the lake lately. Going to try it next week. Need to try some new water. Been pretty fair perch fishing on Keuka this summer.
  23. Great video, thanks for sharing. Do you ever hook into a brown or salmon? I do a lot of jigging on Keuka and always wondered if it would work on LO, now you've answered my question--thanks.
  24. Has anybody been fishing for lakers in Keuka this winter/spring with any luck? Yesterday was the third trip for me since Xmas and was the first time I found a school of any size. Fished it for an hour , no takers. We were the only boat out of H'sport until 11am.
