  1. Thank you for the replies, gentlemen. I might drive the west side of Cayuga tomorrow and check it out, maybe cast a few.
  2. North End Launches Can anyone provide a status of any of the north end launches on Canandaigua, Keuka, Cayuga, or Seneca? I have a 19 foot fiberglass, and can trailer it to any of those. I saw Darkwater1 posted that Dean's Cove is doable on Cayuga (thanks, Darkwater). Any info is appreciated. I can call the various state park launches, but if anyone has any first hand knowledge, I'd appreciate it. I'm hoping to maybe get out Sunday. Thank you.
  3. Thanks for all the input, guys. I'll be out for my last couple trips of the season on the weekend. I'm thinking I'll try LO out of Irondequoit for some browns on Saturday afternoon, and am considering both Canandaigua and Keuka for Sunday. I'll be trolling. I know Keuka really slowed down from a couple years ago. Which would you guys recommend for decent action, as I haven't been on either this year, Canandaigua or Keuka? Any general areas I should try south end of Canandaigua, as I've never been out there. Thanks.
  4. Thanks, guys. I take it you're both referring to the north end launch in Canandaigua, and not the Woodville launch? I've only launched from the north end. I thought if it's as windy out of the south as predicted on Sunday, I might try the south end for a smoother boat ride.
  5. Does anyone have any recent update on the launchability from Woodville or the marine park at the north end of Canandaigua? I am thinking of heading down there on Sunday. I have a 19 foot fiberglass, not heavy, but I'm not sure of the draft. Thanks.
  6. Went out with my brother for our last LO fishing of the season Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. Saturday we fished just east of port in 110-125 fow. We went 2 for 4, with a 12 and a 21. We lost two fish on a wire dipsy out 290 with a blue dolphin sd and blue atommik fly. One shook and one broke us off. Both felt like in the mid teens range. The break off of the fly was due to a small piece of wire on a swivel. The 21 lber came on cut bait, out 285 on a wire dipsy with a golf flasher. The 12 took a magnum 42nd spoon down 90. Worked a couple waypoints, and had some action. Returned this morning to the same general vicinity and had a good fish hit our wire dipsy out 260 with a mtn dew sd and atommik fly at 7:30. It's nice to have a wire fish take good line to start-you know it's a pretty good one. It was 24 lbs and is dark with some red on the belly. That was our only hit for our 4.5 hr trip. Again, marked good bait and some marks in 100-120, but they didn't seem too interested. Sounded slow on the radio. A decent couple trips for us, good luck to all. Here's a pic of the 24.
  7. Seneca

    Thanks for the opportunity to post this -I saw this guy on my fencepost when I was walking my beagle about a month ago (NJ). When we finished, I went back and was able to get a decent picture on my phone. If it rotates, the shell is pointing skyward. I have never seen one at quite this stage before.
  8. The picture is taken from the east beach at the state park, looking west. The north end of the bay would be just left of the crashing wave against the pier. Still breezy here.
  9. It is windy at Fair Haven, NE winds close to 15 mph. I would say probably 4 footers out there. Wave forecast calls for them to come down around 5 p.m., but we'll have to see. You know how the camera doesn't seem to capture wave heights. This is pointing at the pier from the beach, essentially pointing west. Will add picture in next reply, didn't click "full version" on my phone before typing this, so I think I have to come back to attach pic.
  10. It has been slow for us the past couple days.we have fished from 140 to 190 fow with most of the other boats. Fish are very scattered, with only occasional marks. We lost two decent fish yesterday morning - one to a pulled swivel on a pro king magnum spoon green and black, and one broke us off on cut bait off a 250 dipsy. Yesterday also did an evening troll in the same vicinity and was still slow, but did manage two hits on a blue dolphin spin doctor with a blue dreamweaver fly. That was out 285, and my cousin, just in from Seattle, was able to land an 18 pound king. He was happy, and that made our trip. Just one skippy this morning, sounded very slow for most on the radio. Hope to get out this evening.
  11. Launched out of the state park with my brother at 5:30 to hopefully get some fishing in before the rain. We headed nnw and set down in 175 fow. First hit was at 7 on a green and silver spin doctor and fly off a dipsy out 275 on a wire rod. Unfortunately, the swivel was inadequate for a decent fish, and it pulled the ring on the swivel -hate it when my poor decisions lead to lost fish. We worked the 165 - 180 range and hit three fish in another hour and a half. Two kings, at 11 and 14, and a small brown. Two hit on an nbk at 90 off the rigger, and one king hit a meat rig down 80 off a rigger. A good day for us, and hit the pier heads at 8:30, just beating most of the rain. We are camping at the park, so hopefully we'll be out a few more days.
  12. I'll take them if ckawaki hasn't already.
