  1. Awesome video and thanks for posting. Always hard to explain that method but that video shows it well.
  2. You all make good points but I'm so sick of hearing about all the water quality problems in Keuka. I've been following keuka college water testing for a few years and Im not seeing any sign of all these problems. Maybe I'm misinterpreting it but I don't see a problem. They show the lake having less phosphorus than ever I just think everything is out of whack with so many lake trout. There were real problems when I was a kid in the 1960s when DDT was being dumbed and farming was way less friendly to the environment.
  3. I hear ya. Just not sure how get that. It’s been mostly Lakers in keuka for over 20 years and I’d love to catch more rainbows, Browns and salmon but stocking hasn’t done anything to help that out. People need to keep more lakers but I know I don’t usually keep my limit and doubt many others do either.
  4. I fish keuka a lot. News to me that sawbellies are coming back strong. I've seen 1 sawbelly in the stomachs of about 50 Lakers I've kept in the last year. Also don't see schools of smallmouth going after them anymore either. DEC hasn't stocked Lakers in keuka in years so the lake trout population is natural and out of their control at this point. If you want more silvers tell DEC to raise stocking of salmon and browns in Seneca where bait is crazy high. And restocking the species that just crashed (sawbellies) doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.
  5. Docks are in at the south launch on canandaigua. Last I knew the vine valley launch was blocked off
  6. Hard to tell but I think there are some spots on the adipose fun which says brown trout. I don’t trust the jaw and eye thing. It doesn’t hold true.
  7. If I remember correctly the large lampreys in the lake don’t live that long. They spend a longer time in the streams when they are tiny and that’s why chemicals are used in streams. I could be wrong but that is how I remember it being explained to me by one of the guys treating sterling creek a few years back.
  8. Yes they do run it. Dresden area is a good place to start. Have not been in a while so I don’t know what section are still open to fishing.
  9. I would not be surprised if some Ciscos get caught through the ice. Fairly common in some lakes in Canada. Very tasty also!
  10. I would guess they didn’t catch much besides lake trout. The tilted of the report says lake trout survey. I saw gill netting done in a Canadian lake I fish every year. All they caught was lake trout but that lake has walleye and bass also. They said the nets were too deep for walleye and othe fish.
  11. Oh sorry. Feels like it was longer ago
  12. Browns in keuka outlet cannot make their way into keuka lake but I’m sure a few end up in Seneca. My understanding was that browns and landlocks won’t be stocked in keuka for now but they could be again if bait bounces back. That info was from a meeting over a year ago so things may have changed
  13. Wow that is a crazy amount of bait. I thought Seneca was loaded last year but it looks like this year there may be even more bait. I never thought I could go an entire morning and not catch at least one laker pulling copper but Seneca proved me wrong this year. I think this is a good problem. When things start to even out we could have fantastic fishing.
  14. Have not been in a month so I don't know. Might be worth talking with the folks at Beverage Baron in Penn Yan. They are trying to sell bait but I have found their advice to be helpful.
  15. Stocking numbers for keuka might be just as high or higher than Seneca but no way they survived well in keuka. As others have said you can fish all year on keuka and will be lucky if you catch 5 or 10 silver. DEC blamed the high laker population for many years which I guess I agree with. There have certainly been a ton of Lakers out there the last 10 or 15 years.
