  1. In my experience it really depends on where you are fishing out of. Anything over 15 mph will create whitecaps. A 15 mph wind straight form the south can create monster waves in Geneva, and a 15 mph north wind does the same for the south end. That same wind form the east or west - you could still fish close to the lee shore - you'll get bounced around a little but too bad in a 17 1/2 ft aluminum boat. Under 10 mph from any direction you should be fine. Seneca can serve up some misery when strong cold fronts pass through., especially if your a few miles out - the waves can come up quick and make for a long wet ride - in my younger years I found out the hard way. Good luck and tight lines!
  2. Went out of Watkins Glen and we got on the lake around 10 a.m., hoping the south wind wasn't going to be as bad as it was. One mile out the lake was full of sheep so i went on a joy ride and practiced my seamanship for a while on the white caps and after a few hours the wind finally settled down enough to drag a few lines close to shore. Went 1 for 3 on landlocked salmon. All small fish, nothing picture worthy.. Nice to have a day off and get out on the water after a long winter.
  3. Got it - thanks. Best wishes for a great season for all
  4. Thanks for the info and the heads up. Please forgive my ignorance and maybe you can help me understand this - but why would naming a popular creek with public fishing rights, supported by public dollars be flag worthy and any different than naming a Finger Lake, public launch, specific cove etc? I certainly am not trying offend any one or be intentionally obtuse but I don't get it. I checked out the registration terms especially sections 7&8 on content posted and content/activity prohibited and couldn't really find anything. If naming a creek or tributary is some against some unwritten rule or violation of etiquette I was unaware of then I sincerely apologize and please let me know so I don't inadvertently offend or step on anyone's toes- that's not what I'm about.
  5. Just wondering if anyone knows what kind of shape Catherine Creek is in? I hikes a couple of miles of Catherine last fall and it was still quite a mess from the past summers' flooding. Most of the traditional holes were almost completely filled in with sediment. With a relatively dry winter I would imagine that relatively little sediment was flushed out or new holes created.
  6. Hello. I accidentally left my 4.5 ft Gorilla step ladder at the Penn Yann launch Friday night. If any one that used that launch Friday night or Sat a.m. found it and decided to do the right thing and keep an eye on it until the owner could step forward then I thank you and would really like it back. It was not cheap. Please send me a pm. Thanks for helping me out. On another note, we went 3 for 5 on lakers. Nothing huge but good enough for the smoker.
  7. Thanks for the advice. I am still somewhat new to the game so it is much appreciated
  8. Got a late start around 8 am. Started out in 60 ft. Blank screen. Ran out to 300 ft and trolled out to 450 ft . Blank screen. Pulled up the gear and made a run to Oswego and found some fish hugging the bottom in 135 ft of water. Caught and released one small coho. At least it was a nice day for a boat ride.
  9. Thank you everyone for your input.l. What an awesome place we live in to have so many options of places/ species /seasons. Good luck to all and safe travels
  10. Hello all. I'm somewhat new to salmon fishing and have only fished out of Sodus point a dozen times. Oak orchard and Oswego are only 20 min further away from my home. So here is the question - is the fishing out of Oak Orchard or Oswego considerably better than fishing out of Sodus to warrant the extra 20 min of towing? Thanks for any info and tight lines to all
  11. I will be staying in Sodus Bay Aug 18th - 21st. If anyone is interested in looking at it during non- fishing prime time hours, let me know and I'll bring it with me.
  12. Hi all. Can anyone tell which boat launch (paid or free) in Port Bay is the best for launching a 23' boat?
