  1. Cant find anything online so asking another question. Are there navigational and/or fishing regulations with regard to the navy testing facilities on seneca lake? A dotted line shows up on my FF and besides knowing there are cables and sonar subs in the area...what are the regs....thanks!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Where is this? Assume you could pay to launch? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Is there really a launch for residents in Dresden? Curious as I am purchasing property in Dresden and am looking for boat launch...thx Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Yea I'm not necessarily looking for now as much as summertime launches...if that matters. Seems like there would have to be a marina or something, that's a long stretch Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Anyone know of any private (or public) boat launches on west side of Seneca between severne and Geneva? I'm interested more in the Dresden area but any info is appreciated. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. Family trip on canandaigua, fished when I could. We stayed near long's point and fished the south end up to just north of condo's. my Setup is two downriggers where I typically run two poles off each with about 10' depth between the lines on each side. My depths varied but was most successful from 45' to 65'. I use all spoons, FLT and stingers. 9/26 - fished 3 + hrs out of woodville for bows and lakers, caught 4 lakers with my 9 yr old daughter picking up her 1st laker. All fish released healthy. 9/27 - fished by myself, first light for almost 3 hours caught 5 bows and 2 lakers, largest bow topped 6lbs. All fish released. Briefly went out after lunch with my 9 yr old daughter and she caught her 1st canandaigua bow, a 3 lb fish. We kept this for photos and for lunch Saturday. 9/28 - logged about 4 hrs on the lake with only a few releases and never had a fish on. Some time spent in towards shore for browns, but overall disappointed with my efforts and results. 9/29 - fished from first light till 8:15? Or so. The south wind got the better of me and my frozen daughter...we did log one smaller rainbow that may or may not have been legal. All 3 trebles were lodged within the mouth, but i was able to get him back in the water quickly and he went right down. Last thought, I marked alot of bait down 50' to 80' over 150' plus of water, but my success came in the 70 to 125 FOW range
  11. Wanted

    I live in this area but i buy this kind of gear online. Not knowing what specifically your looking for, there is a gander mountain fairly close to the border, and think this will be the best bet for amount of gear/price. Otherwise there is also plenty of dick's sporting goods and several non chain places where you can shop.

    Not sure about the browns, have never targeted them on this lake. I may be wrong but assume my lures were a bit big and not the right colors? I usually use smaller lures, and copper/orange combos for browns. I probably should have put a couple out, but the temptation to target the rainbows here is tough to fight. Have you done well with the browns on this lake, and what's your usual approach?
  13. Canandaigua

    Fished out of woodville 9:30 to 3:00 today with a buddy. We ran 6 lines on riggers ranging from 40' to 70' with mostly green/silver/white colored spoons. We picked up a 5.2 lb rainbow about 10:30 down 59' and had a couple of other releases with nothing to show for. After 12:00 we got into the lakers picking up 5, the largest right at 5 lbs. most fish were caught trolling the mile north from white rock on east shore. We had no releases trolling south on the east shore. 1 laker caught on west shore trolling south. 3 lakers were on the 60' to 70' lines, 2 of them on the 40'. Fish and bait were inside the 100 fow contour. Catch rate was acceptable for us giving the time of day we were forced to fish, trailering in from the west. In hindsight we should have spent less time trolling south on the east shore after we picked up on the trend....water fleas were present and a slight nuisance.
  14. I am new to the site and am here to see what's going on out there, primarily in the finger lakes areas. I hail from Western NY and somewhat regularly fish Canandaigua, Hemlock, Keuka, with occasional trips to Seneca and Cayuga. When I can get my family and friends off the warmwater species I prefer to troll for trout and salmon. Growing up I spent my time downrigger trolling on many Vermont lakes, large and small (Champlain, Bomoseen, Glenn, and others). Having been moderatley succesful at transitioning (since 1992) the craft to the finger lakes, I have been researching on LOU to fine tune things so that I can continue to keep my "passengers", I mean fellow fishermen, interested. This weekend I bring one of my buddies to Canandaigua in search of Lake Trout and Rainbows. our last trip together on Canandaigua was in April where we did ok with Lake Trout. I have read that it's tough out there now, but I'm hopeful to replicate my efforts from last fall where Bows and Lakers were relatively easy to catch. I will likely be on this lake September 7th, as well as the 26th thru the 29th. Any tips are appreciated, and if I have any success I'll try to post some info. I also fish Ontario when I can, but not from my current vessel, a 16' lund. Anyway I figured I'd finally get an account and maybe start posting....Hopefully I have some info worth posting!
