  1. Fair Haven Just wondering if the Fair Haven State Park launch is open.
  2. My son and I are trying to plan a much needed fishing trip. Just wondering if the launch at Fair Haven is open. We always stay down at the Fair Haven Motel
  3. We are coming up tomorrow and Friday for first time this year. Marine forecast shows west wind. Hoping you're right!
  4. We are coming to Fair Haven early Thursday morning and spending a couple days. Hoping the weather God smiles on us! First time on the big pond this year
  5. Incredible fish! CONGRATS! Also, a big pat on the back for the release.
  6. One of our grandsons got a 28 incher just north of Deans Cove 2 weeks ago. Big male. jumped about 5 times . That's a pretty fish you got there. Thanks for the release We need to get the rainbow population back where I used to be
  7. So sorry to hear about your loss. Your original post on this thread could have been written by me about my son and the way he is and how he is also my best friend and fishing buddy.
  8. Brrrrrrrrrrr. looks cold...Nice Brown...Looks like the lamprey got hold of him
  9. My Son with a nice one he caught last summer... Just getting around to going through our pics
  10. I have a summer place near Cayuga and used to fish it exclusively...Because of Lamprey and zebra mussel, I've changed and trailer to either Owasco or Ontario. Owasco is VERY clean and there is a chance of landing a nice Rainbow, however, they are few and far between since the introduction of Walleye..Seems that Walleye's favorite food is baby Rainbows. Wind isn't a big problem on Cayuga unless it's blowing hard straight out of the north or south. I'll admit Ontario had some bad days with wind last summer.. We were blown off twice and both times the waves were 6-8 feet. But when we did fish.. it was fantastic.
  11. I have a summer place two miles from Cayuga and have fished it almost exclusively for years except for an occasional trip to Owasco. The size and quantity of Lakers in Cayuga has gone steadily down over the last 4..5 years. Used to once in a while get a 15 lbr. .. Now a 8 or 9 lbr. is about the biggest. However, most of the eels I've seen are on LL Salmon.
  12. Beautiful King.. Nice report, Thanks for sharing.
  13. Went to Dean's Cove Wednesday about 3:30.. Motored up the west side to just south of Burroughs Point.. Fished south between 100 and 130 ft. Caught several Lakers.. downriggers set at 95 and 85 Blue and silver Mooselook thinfish and black and white stinger with Pearl stripe were best lures..Caught biggest one on a 38 Sutton. Kept two small ones for a lady who works at camp..
