  1. Great catch! Pretty exciting day! [emoji106]ðŸ»
  2. It's sounding like this may be a replica mount quality fish? What do you think? Any recommendations on where to get a good quality one? (Or where to avoid)
  3. Flatlined straight back
  4. Lol - yeah, probably should troll with a little salmon next time [emoji106]ðŸ»[emoji12]
  5. Yeah, this is my personal biggest fish taken on the Finger Lakes. Almost had a heart attack when I saw it come to the surface. Stomach was pretty empty - nothing recognizable in it. Yeah, Cayuga has been better than normal for us this year too - but I certainly don't expect another like this any time soon!
  6. My daughter was excited until it was it was in the boat - then a little nervous. . After this fish, she says she likes "little fish" better.
  7. Lost one nice one near Myers in 120 FoW (broke line) - and picked this one up in 25 FoW on a Fire Tiger rapala. Many fewer marks than last time I was out (a few weeks ago) on the south end Weighed 12.5lb on the scale later that night.
  8. Not a single bite yet this morning👎🻠Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Went out again this afternoon in front of Oswego river mouth. We were the only boat there and no fish. *yawn* - at least it was glassy out there. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. I think you are right on the money. Good luck with the new boat! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Trolled yesterday and this morning straight out of Fair Haven. Beautiful weather, but skunked both days. Marked fish mostly between 90-110 FoW. Fished downriggers and dipsy. J plugs, flashers + aromik flies, spoons. 2.5-3.5 mph top gps. Anyone else have luck? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Thanks for the legal response! We were out trolling a few weeks ago and were checked. They just pulled up next to our boat, looked at poles (we had 4 in the water) and asked to see 2 licenses, even though there were 3 guys in the boat.
  13. Fished east side 6/6 trolled from south tip to cargill, then up near milliken. Put a nice perch in the boat early in 15 fow with a rainbow rapala, then had a few releases in deeper water - but nothing in the boat . Really nice day on the water though...marked several nice bait balls on the trip.
  14. I'll be out of south end (Treman) Saturday morning. Planning on working the east side up to Milliken.
  15. That's good info! What speed were you trolling for the browns/rainbows with planar boards? How far behind the planars are the lures? I'm having a tough time this season. We ran south-east end of Cayuga on the 24th from ~7am - 9:00am-ish, then up to Milliken until noon. Ran downriggers, planar boards, and flatline straight behind the boat. All topwater fishing was with Rapalas, 3ft divers - 20 ft divers. Downriggers tried all types and color spoons. Not a single bite all day. Was idling with a drift sock behind boat, not very accurate speed info. 0.5-1.5mph is best guess. Not a single bite all day...gotta figure out what I am doing wrong!
