  1. Congrats on a nice fish, Bentrod!

    Cayuga (7/5)

    The fishfinder is a Humminbird 597 ci HD with Down Imaging. When we went this weekend we mostly were looking for baitfish and jigging around them. Do you look for baitfish first, then zoom in on the bottom and jig? Or do you just zoom in on the bottom to start and look for lakers sitting on the bottom?

    Cayuga (7/5)

    Well we were able to get out on Cayuga Sunday morning for a few hours of jigging. Despite the wind and algae bloom, we were able to land 4 lakers in 3 1/2 hours of jigging. Fish ranged from 18" to 27", all healthy and fat fish! We launched at Taughannock State Park, and ran North just past the Power Plant. Best depth was 65-80 fow, marked a ton of bait fish. Thanks to the advice of several individuals on here as well as supplies from Copperliner, both of my brother in laws were able to hook and land their first laker! That alone made the trip worth it. I've got a lot of things to learn with jigging, but i'm looking forward to it. Next thing i want to do is try to figure out how to make better use of our fish finder. I don't know much about it, and i know that's one way we can drastically improve our fishing. Sean

    Cayuga (7/5)

    Unfortunately we had to postpone our trip that was planned for yesterday morning. When looking at the weather Wednesday night, it looked like a pretty good chance of thunderstorms by mid morning on Thursday. In hindsight it probably would have been a good morning to be out, but better to be safe than sorry! We are now looking to go out either Saturday or Sunday morning. I'll try to post a report when we get off the water. A big thanks to Copperliner for sending me a big supply of jig heads and soft baits to get us started. It was very much appreciated!

    Wow! Thank you guys for all the information, and for being willing to lend me jigs if needed. If we do get in a pinch, i'll at least know where to start. I'll be sure to post pictures of our trip when i get a chance. Thanks again!!

    Thank you everyone for the replies, i greatly appreciate all of the advice! Copperliner - If you don't mind sending me a few, that would be a great help! I will gladly pay you for the jigs as well as the priority shipping. I just want to make sure that i give the kids the best chance of hooking up as possible. Below is my address, and again THANK YOU! Please let me know what i owe you and i will get a check in the mail for you. Everyone on this site is always willing to help. Sean Mourhess 2675 Reservoir Hill Rd Addison, NY 14801

    Cayuga (7/5)

    I'm planning on taking my two younger brother in-laws (13 & 15) out on Cayuga this Thursday jigging for lakers. It will be their first time fishing from a boat, and (hopefully) their first time catching something bigger than a 12" bass out of my parents pond! The only problem is, i don't have much experience fishing Cayuga for lakers, and i'm just getting into the jigging. I sent my parents on a guided trip with John Gaulke last week on Cayuga, and they did very well - I have picked their brains as well as his quite a bit, but still hoping someone can answer a few questions for me... Where would be the best place to launch from? (coming from Corning area, but don't mind driving a little farther if it gives them a better chance at hooking up) General area or depth to start looking for fish? Any place local to Corning/Big Flats area that may carry 1oz jigs? We have some ordered from www.Billysmtolures.com, but not sure if they will be here in time for Thursday. I have a feeling it could be tough fishing after almost a week of 90+ degree days, but it's my only opportunity to get out and the boys are as excited as all get out We have baitcasters that are all set up per John's recommendation (braided line with fluoro leaders). Thanks in advance for any advice to help them hook up with a laker on Thursday, and please feel free to PM me if you'd rather! Sean
  8. A few other options would be leadcore setups or even seth green rigs.

    Lake Sturgeon Restoration

    Thanks cdq, i was not criticizing you or your buddy for holding the fish up for a picture, as i know you were working with the DEC at the time. I was just curious.

    Lake Sturgeon Restoration

    Since it is illegal to target lake sturgeon, is it correct to assume that if you did happen to catch one that it should remain in the water to remove the hook? I know there would be a strong urge to hold the fish up for a quick picture, but i'm thinking that could be subject to fines from DEC?

    Power Trim Question

    Thanks for the responses guys. Sounds like the problem is most likely moisture/water inside the motor. We will have to take a look at it. Where is the best place to buy a replacement motor if needed?

    Power Trim Question

    I am far from a mechanic, so please bear with me as i try to explain My parents have a 1990 Bass Tracker, with a 110hp Evinrude. At the end of last season, the power trim worked fine from any of the three switches (bow, console, and on the motor). A few days ago they got the boat out and put all new batteries in. When they tried the power trim to put the motor down to test it with the ear muffs, it would not move the motor. My uncle is an electrician and took at look at it, and here is what we know: There is power at all of the trim switches on the boat There is power to the solenoid You can hear the relay switches clicking when you hit the trim switch Neither Trim-up or Trim-down work New batteries - so plenty of juice Does anybody have any advice one what to look for, or what the issue could be? Thanks, Sean
  13. Very cool, Les! Happy belated birthday, sounds like it was a good one!

    Sold / Closed Sutton Spoons

    Will you sell them individually, or would you like to keep them all together? If so, what would your price be per spoon?
