  1. I would launch out of Green Point Marina. It is on the North side of the pond. It is close to the channel for access to the lake. I believe it is $7.00 to launch and park.
  2. This is from the Sandy Pond Channel Maintenance Facebook page. Just an update on the Channel.. As of 4/4 From the North side the channel (or deeper water) is in the middle of the sand bar. Between the Island and the North spit. There is a minimum of 3' of water to 5' of water. The deeper water is easier to see if you have polarized sunglasses. The middle channel is still very deep. We were able to get out into the lake with 3-4' in the spot where the rock pile is to your right. If you have a smaller boat the South side has 2' for a short distance and then is 3-4' this is very close to the South spit. The north side very close to shore has 2' also, but there is a big log that you can see. NYS Parks and Recreation will not mark a channel that is not 4' deep. April 11 at 3:00am
  3. Thank you very much. From your response I guess I better make room for them in the spoon boxes. I have a few dozen of them in 4" and 5". In a few different colors.
  4. Can someone tell me who makes this spoon?

  6. Thank you guys very much for the information. I will check the posts from last year A*M to see what was working. It is more of a getaway than a fishing vacation as to why I was curious about the wineries. After the time she spent on the boat with me at Lake Ontario this summer she deserves a little relaxation. She still has bruises from the last few weekends fighting salmon. lol Thank you again, Dave
  7. I am moving the boat from Ontario to Cayuga and have a house rented for 2 weeks in Union Springs starting September 27th. Never fished Cayuga for anything other than bass in the past and need some help for trout and ll salmon. Is there going to be any problems launching at Frontenac Park in the coming weeks? Is there wineries close by to visit by boat? Are the fleas gone by then? What lb test line should I run for leaders and riggers? Does copper work? Any spoons better than others? I appreciate any help that I can get.
  8. The channel is marked well as they have been dredging the channel the last few weeks. Have not had a problem getting in or out as long as I run behind the island. Hope that helps.

Started last year and learned everyday from here and our weekend trips. Thank you to everyone who posted reports on here. It has been a great help. Started Saturday morning a little later than expected but it was a great time. Started at the dock getting the poles out and listening to the radio that "It is a tough morning" "We had one release" "Alot rougher out here than we expected". My girlfriend responded by stating her concerns of getting sick. I convinced her that we won't go far out. We ran North 6 miles from the pond and trolled South with the wind. Thanks to the Fishhawk td we set everything around the good temps. Set the downriggers at 75' and 85', starting setting the dipsys and a release,,, grabbed the pole and gave it to her to reel in. A few minutes later it had run 90' and she was struggling. She kept fighting it as I let out the copper and the other dipsy. We got it boated and it was a 25lb 8 ounce king. Just as we put it in the box the dipsy fired. Ended up being a 14 lb 12 ounce laker. Took a picture and set him back. After a while with no releases we decided to turn back where we started. After 20 minutes the copper takes off, it was about an 8 lb brown, then the 6" ITO fly releases again,, grab the pole and give it to her as I had to keep the boat straight going into the waves. After 10 minutes the fish had her screaming I can't bring it in. It ended up being a 30lb 4 ounce King. The biggest we have ever landed. Everything after that was a blast. We went out Sunday morning early and ran another mile farther North. Same Story, except she got pretty sick with the waves so we headed in early laker 30 lb King 25lb King 24 lb King
