  1. I have one all set up. It’s. Penn 49L. With a roller fiberglass rod. I think I paid 100for it a while back. Sell for the same or would,trade for dipsy rods and reels. I live in a Irondequoit. 585 314 1091. My name is Ed
  2. We fished 7-1230 on Saturday out of Woodville. I used to own a cottage up by the Christian Camp. We ran the chute back and forth from the camp to Steamboat Landing. at least 6-7 times. Boated 26 and lost 10-12 more. Was fishing copper with Pfleuger 4's silver or blue white in 35-45'. Trolled with the Minnkota at 1.5MPH. It is a run I have made 100's of times and this seems to be one of my best. Only problem - no size. Biggest fish was 4lbs. I pulled in at least 5 that were less than <1lbers and killed a few because the hook f-'d them up too much. Oh well - constant action. They have been eaten. We brought a first timer and he is hooked. I agree. Launches were bad. Wonder if it is worse because so many launches on the big lake are closed???? Good luck.
  3. Boated 26 between 7:00 -12:30 yesterday. Used copper wire with Pflueger 4's dragging south from the Christian Camp to Steamboat Landing. 30-45' @ 1.5MPH Lost 10 more. Epic day. Only bad thing was that no fish was heavier than 4lb. Lot of fish but not big ones. Good Luck
  4. Not sure I am allowed to ask about a finger lake - but any idea how deep the Lakers are right now 6/7/19?
  5. It is not that complicated. If you want to see the equipment we use and are in the Rochester area, I can give you some spoons to get you started because they don't make Pfleuger 4's anymore. The key is trolling slow and be on the bottom. If you are not on the bottom you are wasting your time. My family has always kind of trolled and jigged the spoon as we were trolling to get more action. We have fished for 30+ years this way on the East side of Canandaigua Lake south of the Christian Camp to the next point south in 30-40' of water. We never even had a depth finder. Just went between one point to the next point. Right now is a killer time to go. As the water warms they get out deeper.
  6. FLX. Thanks for the info. We have been using like .022 guage copper line for years. No backing and no leader. Just copper. I have always wondered if that was such a good set up. What guage copper do you use? Leader size? We do not use level wind reels. Just open 49L's. that you have to level with your thumb when you are reeling up. We have donated a lot of copper to the bottom. It's just a family thiong we have always done since I was a little kid. Probably not the best way to skin a cat. You have probably snagged a couple of my lines if you fish the east side by the camp. Usually after the fish get out to 70 feet we give up in the middle of the summer. We have never been able to get to the bottom with the reels we have. Probably becuase we have not used any backing. That might help. Our frineds on Senenca Lake have used big pearl flatfish with copper and that seems to work. Personally I have not had much luck withn Suttons. The Pfluegers are heavier and seem to catch more fish. We're probably living in the stone age - any advice would help.
  7. First post here. Looks like a great site. My family has been fishing Canandaigua Lake for about 40 years. We have always used copper rigs for Lake Trout. I have caught and released many many fish. I am 43 years old. I would like to try using lead core line becuase the copper is effective but a paibn in the butt. I don't know what you would use to try the lead core. I have been using Penn 49L reels wiht roller tip rods with the copper. Udually use Pfleuger 4's and 5's wiht the copper. Lately have been using dangling hooks versus the fixed hooks. What should I sue as far as reels and rods and lures for the lead core? Also wondering about othert lures that might work wiht the copper whyile I am also trying the lead. Thanks for the help.
