  1. I'm hoping to fish the South end of Cayuga tomorrow and was wondering how far out the brown colored water goes? I'll be fishing from a kayak. My back up plan is launching at Meyers. Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks. Ed Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Great pictures! Thanks for posting!
  3. Nice job! It isn't everyday you see a rainbow photo with a rainbow in the sky!!, [emoji846][emoji294] Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Wow! Love those kind of days! Appreciate all the detail!! Thanks!
  5. So Sweet!! Great Smile!! Thanks for posting! How deep?
  6. Appreciate all the knot options. I will check them all out. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Well I had a lot of help from many you! Thanks!!
  8. With the little research I've done that's the one that looks most doable. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Got on the water yesterday at 6 and off by noon. The chop on the water, the breeze, the temperature and the partial cloud cover were close to ideal. Caught 4 fish all keepers: 3 Browns, 1 Laker. Also 2 misses. Although the bite wasn't super heavy it was spread out fairly evenly. All Browns were caught on #8 silver and black Rapala diving shad raps on spinning rods(no extra weight). The Laker on a Luhr-Jensen Coyote spoon using leadcore with 5 colors out (8' per color sink rate) This was my first time ever using leadcore - tried it for about 1/2 hour towards end of trip with the 1 Laker and 1 miss. Definitely very different than spinning reels.( If anyone knows of any how to videos /literature please let me know. Also recommendations for best/easiest knots for tying fluorocarbon leader to leadcore line would be greatly appreciated!) Best Brown and Luhr-Jensen spoon in photos.

  10. Looks like a beautiful, peaceful place. I hope to go up there with my kayak someday. So nice to be able to share that experience with your son! Thanks for the detailed story.
  11. Good to know. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I launched out of Sheldrake at 7 this morning and was off a little before 1. All the action was in the first 3 hours. Landed 4 landlocks 16" to 19" (1 keeper) Also a couple of misses. All were caught on the North side of the point in water from 25' to 50'. Lots of bait pods in the same areas. When the wind died down the action stopped. Trolled the entire time with diving Rapalas.( FYI : I switched all of the treble hooks on my Rapalas (and other lures) over to single hooks this year.) It's a great place to launch a kayak! Will definitely go there again. Thanks to everyone for all the input.
  13. I'm heading up to Sheldrake tomorrow morning. Hope to be on the water by 7. Thanks to everyone for all your advise. If there are other kayakers who would like to fish together sometime that would be nice. I usually go out during the week to avoid the weekend traffic. I'll let you know how I do . Take care Ed

  15. Thanks Reel Doc I was actually there to check out the area a couple of years ago. I think I'll give it a try. Any suggestions about heading North or South? Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Thanks for the recommendation. Any color suggestions? Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Thanks for the suggestion. I stayed away from there the last few years because of the number of people fishing from shore.
  18. I have fished for trout and salmon almost exclusively out of Meyers Point from a pedal kayak with a trolling motor for the past 3 or 4 years. I'm thinking about trying a different location. Perhaps Dean's Cove or Long Point. I always fish relatively close to shore mostly flatlining Rapalas and Little Cleos. Last year I purchased a leadcore rod & reel but haven't used it yet. Any suggestions about where to go ; what direction to head ; over what depth of water to try etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Ed Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Thanks for all the comments. Just wish I had a video of the Brown jumping. Might grand kiddos would have loved it. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Thank you! I appreciate your comments! Have a great day!! Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. When I initially caught this fish I thought it was a Brown but now I'm really not sure( first 2 photos). This fish jumped way out of the water 4 or 5 times once I had it next to my kayak. Other Browns I've caught in recent years on Cayuga didn't jump. Sorry I don't have better photos. I wanted to get it back in the water as soon as possible. Thanks. Ed P. S. I also caught what I think was my first ever decent Rainbow(I think?). Yesterday was a very active day on the water. I think the overcast skies, the nice chop on the water and an approaching rainstorm helped. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
