  1. 65` @ 64 feet !?!?!? Wow - Lake still thinks it's summertime.
  2. One thing to remember - this is sentencing from his conviction in June... not another case of being caught. Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I'm guessing someone is a John Deere fan based on the color ?. Cool set-up

  6. Canadice lakers can humble you pretty quickly; there are days I can have non-stop action, and there are other I'll go 3-4 hours without a single hit. Can't say if any one time or location is best on that lake, but it's small enough to move around to find bait balls and marks. I bring along a large assortment of jigs and blade baits, and change-up things if until I find what they're interested in. In no particular order,: PK lure flutter spoons PK lure Panic jig Bite booster blade baits Sweedish pimples Kastmaster jigging spoons 1 - 2 oz saltwater jigs And pretty much anything else I can find that's heavy with hooks on it. I fish out of a Hobie kayak. All the Finger Lakes are fishable with the right safety gear and a good mind about you. North \ South winds can make the lakes too rough for a kayak, but if you watch the forecast, you'll be fine. Also found that based on winds, (for example) T-falls is too rough, but Sheldrake or Deans on Cayuga is relatively flat; so don't be afraid to drive around to check different locations.

  7. Never fished the reservoir before - Any more details ? See that it's only 50 ft deep - does it stratify ?
  8. Gotta love the look of those older True Vaule Tinnys. Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Interesting reading. Patent Images (uspto.gov)
  10. Lot 4 - are those weights or floats on the release ?
  11. Launched the kayak out of Woodville this AM @ 6 AM - only a few other trailers in the parking lot - thinking all the Trout fishermen launched out of Vine Valley based on the results of the Tournament Last Week Saw the following temps with the Fishhawk td, so worked around 35-45 FOW with a mix of deep diver sticks and spoons using torpedo divers to different depths. Stayed on the south drop off , and never moved north of rock cut the entire morning. Ended up with a 18.5" brown that came home and was grilled for dinner and a 23-odd" laker that was released. Lost another one after a quick run and it spit the hook. Lots of "clutter" in the upper 15-20 feet of water - but saw few good sized bait balls, that I could actually feel the lines hitting the bait as I passed through them. Was off the water by 11.
  12. I heard the fish helped General Sullivan cross the Delaware River, and to return the favor he was released in Canandaigua Lake during the Sullivan Expedition... Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. @bulletbob - Shallow bite does slow down as the sun gets higher - I've moved deeper (90-150 FOW) and stayed busy into the afternoon. I have noticed that when jigging in deeper water, a lot of times there's nothing showing on the bottom, but once I start reeling up, they'll show up on sonar 10-30 feet off the bottom and start chasing.
  14. 6/6/21 - When out of Sheldrake @ 6:30 AM Wind out of the S-SW, lake was a bit rougher then I expected, so stayed north of the point. Last week I when I was out, the East winds had moved warmer water and bait over to the west side, so I was hoping to find 'em there again. Was planning on trolling, but ended up jigging for a few hours. Last week they were in less then 30 FOW, this AM, I was finding marks in 45. Ended up landing 2 - first one was 30.5" and the second 22". Both released. - 2nd appeared to be fin clipped. 1st one was classic "hit on the drop" - was watching the fishing rise up to the jig on sonar, and suddenly line went slack when he hit it. 2nd one tested my netting abilities - I flubbed a few times before landing it. Off the water by 10:30 - once the wind died down the sun was brutal in the yak. 2 videos uploaded to youtube...
  15. TTT These are available again.
  16. I'll take them. Sending a private message.
  17. Here's what Mr. Google says https://www.google.com/search?q=bill+saiff+arrested
  18. 1st thing in the morning alewive / darker colored stick baits that dive 15-20 ft. seem to work good. In the kayak I'm pretty stealthy, keeping them back 100-150 ft. I have been playing with some in line planers to spread things out a bit - not 100% confident with them yet, but getting better. Also have had good luck jigging for them around bait balls with silver / minnow colored swim baits instead of the traditional "laker white". Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. The original post was 8 years ago, and it was the only post made by that user. Odds are you're not gonnna close the deal... Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. 9 Great Lakes # 4 spoons. Based on the brass bolt and nut and the skirted hook those are from early 90's. The white painted one with glitter tape is a bit older - Probably 80's $30 for all. Will ship on your dime. Face to face - Canandaigua / Ontario County area.
  21. These are a good entry-level trolling rod. Switched to a different brand, and these are taking up room collecting dust. Would like to see someone else get some use out of them. Have a total of 4 rods, all lightly used from the kayak. Prefer face to face rather then trying to ship - Canandaigua / Ontario county area
  22. @wherearethey You have a PM sitting in your inbox.
  23. Hessney auction house has their spring sportsman's auction going on - it ends tomorrow. A bunch of barrels in the auction, looking to see if they have 20 gauge rifled listed.
