  1. Launched out of the chamber, fished south of high banks, caught a few lakers, between 3 - 5 lbs, lost 2 good ones - isn't that the way it usually happens. Suttons where hot but we got fish on NK 28's and spin doctor / fly combos as well. How did you do Kevin? Bob
  2. We ran flasher / flies for a couple of hours with no touches. Sutton spoons where made for this lake. Bob
  3. Spent the morning fishing with my son. We worked the north central part of the lake, caught 21 rainbows, 2 lakers and 1 smallmouth - size ran small but we had a blast - 2 doubles and a triple. Leadcore, wire dipsys and rigs all produced.

  5. we went out in the afternoon, didn't do anything till around 5:00 then had 4 releases and hooked a small king and a dink coho, got off around 7:30. We didn't mark anything early having started in 400', started seeing fish around 225fow but not many. Bob
  6. We added a Subtroll last year and I don't like how far it pulls back, how big of a weight do you use with it or does any size weight make an improvement?

  8. After 25 years my faithful telescoping handle landing net is ready for social security benefits. What are the best nets made now? My old one always marred my fiberglass, is there anything better? Also, what size limits does the DEC impose on nets? Thanks, Bob
  9. We launched out of the north end, fished the west side from German Brothers to Menteth point getting hits constantly till around 11, then they shut off and we quit around noon but the 2 month old battery was too dead to start the big motor and we had a slow ride back to the launch. We ran purple / black, silver / brass and blue silver spoons with no luck on blue. We snagged a small laker just in front of his dorsal fin ad dragged him for a bit until we figured out it wasn't grass - wierd. Picked one 4 -5 lb smallie about 70', a couple more lakers and 8 or 9 rainbows up to 4 lbs. At some point during this the dipsy / spin doctor / fly out 160' screamed, my buddy who has arthritis and moves very deliberately left the drivers seat and had the rod in his hands before I had time to look up, yup he was pumped, landed a beautiful 10 lb lakes who posed for a photo and went back in the lake. Bob
  10. It started with a phone call Saturday afternoon, "Hey lets go to Canandaigua tomorrow, you in your boat and me in mine, lets see who can catch more." I got there an hour late, he has 2 small bows already. We both set up our rigs and had a blast. We each got 9, each had 2 lures snapped off, his biggest a 9 pound laker, we both got 7-8 lbs rainbows and a couple 6-7 lbs lakers, I had double screamers on at once and hooked a nice smallmouth as well. We worked 80 to 160 FOW, most fish coming 50 - 80 feet down, we called it a draw and left the water around 1:00 PM. All the fish where in excellent shape and had beautiful color. It was the best day either of us have had in August.
  11. Nice fish, observing the background in the photo I'm guessing you are in the same area we found loaded with Lakers. Lots of fun when they cooperate.
  12. We got out Saturday AM on Canandaigua north central, got into the rainbows around 9:00AM, boated 3 and lost 2 - one screamer on the leadcore. 30 to 50 feet down over 65 to 150 FOW. Picked up 1 small laker in the mix, we were of the lakes by 11:00AM. Hit north end of Seneca Sunday AM, marked lots of fish suspended but had to work to get a couple small Landlocks, working our way back we got into Lakers hanging on the bottom in 50 - 90 FOW and picked up 5 rather quickly - saved our day and our face with an infrequent fishing buddy. Then it was home to the honey do list. Hope everybody has a safe 4th next weekend.
  13. I am interested in one 47lc reel, where are you located? Bob 315-374-9302
  14. I'm looking for a crank handle for a Daiwa 47H, anybody got one? Thanks, Bob
  15. Saturday was good to us, we had 4 people in the boat including my son who came home to fish. We hadn't been on the lake yet this year so we started with rigs and it was busy for the 1st couple of hours. When it slowed down we tried some other things and ended up with a 5.82 lb rainbow off leadcore that was leader for the day. We ended up with a dozen fish (lakers and rainbows) but nothing big. Having my son and his friends along made for a great weekend. Sunday was tough, we tried shallow and had a major tangle involving a little laker that wrapped 4 rods without tripping the downrigger. We also lost a nice lakes off a yellow J-9 rapala behind a small dipsy run out 80'.The wind finally won and we quit around noon.
  16. Looking for one Penn Swivelmatic base, the shark fin style. Will be on Seneca for the weekend but will be back Monday. Thanks
  17. We have an 18" Penn Yan, 3.0L I/O, 9.9 kicker on starboard corner and small cooler over swim platform. Currently we have 2 short arm Penn downriggers, one on each side. I am considering mounting a third 4 foot boom off the rear but am not sure if I'm going to end up with more of a pain than a gain. Any of you with expierence please throw your 2 cents in. Thanks
  18. Thermoclining is way too much work, you need to bring new friends each trip to reel them up for you. Serriously, I wonder how much 7 strand backer a 47LC will hold. It would make repeatability easy.
  19. Furuno is long lasting quality electronics. Replaced my 1986 unit last year with a 620 - works great
  20. We went out same time as Blue Ghost but went further south. 1st fish was a 10# rainbow, 40' down, followed imediately by a 3# laker on the other rig. Caught 2 more little rainbows, a small brown then a 7# laker off a fly / spin doctor combo behind a dipsy. All over by 8:30 but we stayed till we got wet. Rainbow was our boats best ever in 20 years on Finger Lakes.
  21. Went out of the north end at dawn, no one else out, set up in 200 feet, marked fish from 30 to 140 FOW. We caught 8 including 2 rainbows and one 8# laker. Off the water by 11:00.
