  1. If they want to jig or cast try John Gaulke @ fingerlakesanglingzone
  2. Rocket science requires a space helmet, common sense requires a mask
  3. I tried to play by the rules yesterday and fish from shore, first 10 minutes yielded 3 bites, none from fish. If corona doesn't get you the lyme probably will. Good luck and stay safe out there.
  4. I believe I read the 2k to 10k in the syracuse paper article but I cannot find that or the actual ESD directive, sorry.
  5. Mar 29, 2020 - 14 in the FAQ at: https://esd.ny.gov/sites/default/files/ ... conducted by state and local governments, including fines up to $10,000 per violation. Doesn't say if the fines are for running a non-essential business or launching a boat.
  6. I've read so many websites to see if the launches were open I'm not sure where that was, i will see if i can locate it.
  7. Last Sunday the launch was open but that was when the order to close was unclear. It's clear now and fines supposed to be $2k to $10k. They probably will take your license plate information, not worth the risk IMO.
  8. Thanks, sounds better than I expected.
  9. I was planning on jigging as well, thanks for the update.
  10. Is it worth a 2.5 hour drive to Long Point for lake trout tomorrow or is the lake a muddy mess from all the rain? Thanks for any updates.
  11. I went from the old lowrance X-85 to a garmin echo. It worked great for jigging lakers for about 2 years and then seemed to not pick up the jig as well no matter how I tried to adjust it. I then went with the humminbird helix and am happy enough to get another one for the boat upgrade. I do better with the lower frequency transducer with the wider cone angle (83kHz and 60 degrees.) Some of the newer DI models with the chirp eliminated that, IMO a mistake. Humminbird helix can run a split screen with both 83 kHz and the 200 kHz (20 degree cone angle), but I prefer the bottom zoom/low frequency split screen. It's all what you feel most comfortable with--I drive a Dodge Ram and my fishing partner loves a Ford 150.
  12. Launched out of long point last weekend but runoff pushed me over to west side-- jigging for lakers. Stoneam:There are lakers north of deans cove launch all the way to the silos. I was 130 to 160 FOW with 47 surface temp. The trollers were between me and the shoreline and I believe they landed lakers and landlocks I'm guessing 75 to 125 FOW. I hooked some lakers suspended 50 to 65 ft over 140. Hope that helps, good luck.
  13. Fished Long Point 7/31--my first impression was an algae bloom, or maybe the whiting effect--calcium carbonate precipitation from plankton photosynthesis. John Gaulke posted it was mud from the heavy rains on 7/30. I'm not sure what it was, but lake trout jigging was slow to slower.
  14. Cayuga's west side off rt 89 just south of varick.
  15. I'll be jigging lakers there late tomorrow and Tuesday, you never know what a jig may come up with--north or south of the launch?
  16. Thank you very much for the heads up, these are great rods and $29 is unbelieveable, my fishing partner lives close enough to run down and score a few for both of us. Really appreciate your information!
  17. low temp in the lake 36.8, high temp near shore 40.6
  18. Thanks DJ, long point is a little closer and I like the east side a little better. Ed--I'm from Connecticut (thanks Geno and Kevin Ollie) but now I live in Delhi NY. My partner claims I never worked much anyway, so it was probably a different Bullwinkle that you knew.
  19. Thanks Lucky Lure, 2 1/2 hour ride that I now know is worth it, may see you this weekend, good luck.
  20. Thanks, at least if long point isn't open I can head down to Myers and cure some of the cabin fever.
  21. Anyone know if there is ice at Long Point or Deans Cove launch ponds? thanks for any information.
