  1. What do you do when you see hundreds of perch, small and good size, under a dock in about 10 feet of crystal clear water and not one wants to bite? I put worms and even gulp right in front of their mouths where I could see the exact reactions and nothing bit. They just ignored my presentations. Very frustrating. This was in Seneca lake.
  2. Did you let Dave catch one?
  3. Last year I had two Lowrance X87 depth finders taken out of my boat and replaced with new ones. There is only one transducer with both of these as the one original transducer that was in the hull was ruined when taken out. These came with the boat in 2005. $50.00 takes both depth finders and transducer. Owners manual included. Athens, Pa area.
  4. Fished below Long Point about 5 weeks ago. Caught 3 gobies in a row on a dropshot with a 4 inch worm in about 15 feet of water. Didn't take me long to change tactics for bass!

    My party just returned from Sodus last Wed. We did about the same for largemouths with Senkos and topwater. No concentrations, just one here and there.
  6. Are there any boating restrictions now on Keuka Lake? 5 mph speed limit? Wanted to go for panfish on Friday at Branchport. Thanks for any info.

    Cayuga Lake

    The lake was a mess today, floating wood/debris and water was stained to muddy. There must have been a real strong storm. Fished for perch. They are in along shore. Fished from 7:45 to 2:30, brought home 30 perch , some on the smaller side but will be very tasty eating. Caught them a a small smoke twister tail - 1/16 oz jig. Seemed to be quite a few 10" or so rainbow trout wanting to grab the jig. Was a great day to be out.
  8. Stopped at Severne yesterday on my home from Keuka. The launch is open. Seven boat trailers were there, talked to one guy that just came in and he thought the perch were still deep. Didn't see any boats fishing close to the launch site.
  9. Time to start jigging or don't you do that Les?
  10. I agree! I just fished the south end of Cayuga last week and caught alot of small perch and a few small bluegills. No rock bass. I used to fish Cayuga the first day of bass season and could catch at least 100 rockies and could sort them out to bring home 50 fairly good sized ones. For the last ~6 years, I have caught none. They have just disappeared. I blamed it on VHS even though the DEC said that wasn't the problem.
  11. I decided to try the panfish today on the south end of Cayuga since it was so nice today. Fished both sides of the lake up to the pump house. Caught alot of perch, but they were all on the small side- 6 to 9 nches. But filleting some of them turned out to be a delicious dinner tonight! Also caught a dozen bluegills that were on the small side. Used a 1/16 oz lead head jig with a 1 1/2" smoke twister tail. Lake was flat. Hardly any boats out. Just alot of fun on ultra light tackle.

    More crappies

    That's exactly what we had tonight for supper! Only the panfish fillets and asparagus were topped off by strawberry shortcake!
  13. Must have just missed you as three of us left the bluff at 2:55. We rookies even caught our limits of lakers (17 to 25") by jigging in 100 to 150' fow. We were the only ones there and just drifted randomly in front of the bluff with the NE wind. Sorry that I did not have my camera. Lakers are marinating as I speak! These fillets will be the first that I have had from here. Everyone says the lakers from Keuka are the best.
  14. Really enjoyed this show last year. Although not into fly fishing much anymore, I learned about jigging for lake trout. Hope Alec and Les will be there!
  15. Plan on being there. Hope there is some official info on why the smelt population has been decimated.
  16. My only comment is that one should not wear an inflatable life preserver if the temperature is below freezing. A conservation officer informed me that the CO2 cartridge may not go off when it is so cold.
  17. Great! Can't believe they will be here so close to home. Too bad they don't have co-anglers, anymore.
  18. Thank you for the warm welcome!!
  19. Hello - My name is Dave from Athens, Pa. I have enjoyed reading this site especially for the Finger Lakes. I do not troll, but would rather learn to jig for lake trout. Thanks to Hermit for his many tips and others associated with jigging - will try them on my future trips. Usually get up to fish 6 to 8 times a year on the Finger Lakes and once or twice a year at Sodus Point for bass and panfish. My blue Nitro has no name and I do not fish any tournaments (need my sleep as I am retired and have a very long honey do list).
