  1. Great trophy! A country girl can survive!!
  2. You'll likely encounter a lot of recreational boaters at Long Point as the day progresses. That said, it is one of my favorite spots at first light. I like to figure 8 on the point several times before going north. You may pick up a bow there as well. Try the same thing at Stony Point just a short distance north. Then run up and down the break of the shelf in front of the college.
  3. Scorpion stingers. Boy girl, mixed veggies, greasy chicken wing and maybe a rainbow needle fish. Pink or green ale wife if they're on the bait. 3.0 or better.
  4. Slick tricks. Best thing on the business end since flint!
  5. A few years back we caught a laker in Cayuga with an almost, identical mutation. We called it "The two-faced fish".
  6. I feel your pain, brother. Been there. The little ones never get off.
  7. Surface temperatures are increasing and the bait and big fish moving deeper. We targeted rainbows and found 52 degree water down 50 over 120 on the West side half way between Deans cove and Sheldrake. Ran stacked riggers 40 and 60, Slide divers at 50. Took a couple of nice ones on the divers and some Lakers off the riggers. The 6lb bow liked a rainbow Needlefish and the 7 lb one ate a greasy chicken wing scorpion.
  8. The cotton was too heavy to troll my favorite runs. Found some clean water just south of Long Point and stayed on it all Friday and Sat morning. Shallow program again in 35 to 45 fow with surface temps 55 and 54 each morning. Boated a mixed bag of lakers, salmon, browns and bows. 33 on Friday, 21 Sat. Hottest lure was a silver streak green alewife on the slide divers and riggers, but largest fish were taken on the inline boards running J-7 jointed black and silver rapalas. Best fish an 11-4 brown we couldn't release, but put the 10 pounder back in the pond.
  9. Strong, NNW winds in the morning gave us second thoughts, but we gave it a go. Still running a shallow program in 20 to 25 fow. Because of the wind we found surface temperatures fluctuating from 48 to 56. 23 fish boated throughout the day. Mostly lakers, a couple good ones, 4 short salmon and took a nice bow off the inline board with a J-7 jointed brown trout in the evening as the lake laid down. 8lbs 8ozs.
  10. Been trolling around the site for a couple years. Figured it was time to jump in. I live in Otsego county, town of Milford. Fish out of an old, stripped down, Bluefin Spectrum 17 and a half footer. Occasionally get on the big pond, but you can usually find me on Cayuga. I've been fishing there about 15 years, plus Seneca, Owasco and Skinny. My buds took to calling me fingerlakesfreddy so i adopted the handle. Get em out and get em down!
  11. I fished the 24th, 25th and morning of the 26th out of Long Point with a couple of old boys from the area. Ran a shallow program in 15 to 25 feet. Lots of bait in there and morning surface temps were 52. Kept hammering the short stretch from long point to the college. Caught around 40 lakers and 4 landlocks. No browns or bows. In line boards, slide divers and riggers all took fish. Bayrat goby, large greasy chicken wing and bloody nose stinger caught most. Biggest laker was 12 1/2 lbs and many were in the 5 to 8 lb class. A 40 inch Northern gave us a pleasant surprise.
