  1. Been fishing long point south to power plant. Seeing tons of fish 70 over 100 but lock jaw. Had some take green and black spoon with oversize eye but has been slow. May run way south in morning, fish up west side. Any advice?
  2. Sunday, fished just south of long point off my camp on Honoco. still lots of debris, but sun was up, sky was calm and beautiful day. one nice brown,, but real slow. saw one neigbor go by eary Sunday AM when it was still cold and windy,..;pulling copper! heaidng down to Watkins Glenn on Sunday for the annual flea market. it is Sunday right?
  3. i see no one mentioned apex. I found when things just are not going well, run the small apex close to the ball at 2.2 or so. does anyone remember what they used to call the peanut? run behind bells works very well for lakers. I still have a few but can't find them available commercially.
  4. Saturday looks to be sunny and decent. anybody going to be out on Cayuga? from Long Point area South? I am going to hit the area just north and south of Don's Marina in the morning. saw lotsa bait there last week end. And I am going to try once again the jiggin if the wind is down or a trollin. later in the day going for more 10-12" perch in 24' of water off the points. it's been good. minnows of course.

  6. thanks. wind is [email protected] down here right now but is expected to shut down a bit toward evening and will give it a try then. thanks for the tips
  7. Wonderful info on jiggin. I am a troller and tried jig'n a bit this year to no luck; but I am determined. going out this afternoon, Wednesday from my camp on honoco hitting the drop offs off Franklin Point down to King Ferry point. I saw fish last week end holding in their regular spots of 80-90 feet over 100, and saw bait moving up now to the 50'-70' range as the water cools. My plan is to jig down through the bait when I see it, and also jig down on the holding fish on the bottom at the 90' level. does that sound right? I still see some trollers out in the 200' plus water. could that be right and do you jig out in that deep water? cant wait to get out of the office and hit the lake today!
  8. okay thanks willl do!
  9. I"ve neen a downrigger guy for years and have a ball at it. Last year tried the jigging routine with no success. I hear jigging guys are not trolling guys. who cares,..fishin is fishin,.....who can tell me how to go about the sport of jiggin on Cayuga?
  10. maybe the west side is the hot place. went out the east side over the week end from LP south to Kings Ferry Point; small llocks, and found huge areas of grass, off and on all through there. bait and the right temp at 50 degrees matches what you are saying. could not fish consistently due to off and on grass area. acquaintance picked up three pig lakers pullng wire on his victrola in 90'. maybe I should go get mine out along with the 88, a cold beer, and a net.
  11. sat. 6/5 went out early off of franklin point and kept way too busy with the wigglers, then wind shifted and now the long point run south is starting to grass up so went in for the afternoon. intend to hit it ealry evening. i was docked at castellis for 7 years or so and fished that north end, ..we called it the basin, from the green can west to the silos over 40-60 feet down close, is a terrific run this time of year. never big lakers, but consistent nice size that you got. anybody use or monitor a radio freq when fishing cayuga?
  12. first post. been fishing cayuga for 15 years.. new to LOU, met Cowder 3 weeks ago at LP and said join LOU. so I did. good stuff. tonighjt fished from Don's Marina north to franklin point. no mate so one arm paper hangar tonite. 6 lb laker, 3 lb brown, 7 wiggly shakees on the sliders all 15-16 inches,.. so real good fish time taken up cleaning off these rascals,...Sub T indicated 48 degree at 35 feet, with surface at 70. fast drop. bait showing up from 25 feet to 40 feet. had a big salmon on but lost it. rod strsight up then down to the water bouncin like a jumpin bean, could not get there fast enuf while headin the boat out to fight the fish. laker took the black with red and white dots. when i fished with the north end basin group in the 90's out of Union Springs we called it ol faithfull. the brown took the slider green on green. hope to try ealry am tomorrow. I will browse franklin point then over to sheldrake. on 68 boat is J5.
