  1. YOWZA,, Great report, thanks. Congrats on your persistence, it certainly paid off.
  2. The launch and parking lot at Treman are clear of snow and ice. The water level today was 380.5. Prop kicked up some mud but no issues launching. We launched at 9:30 and pulled out at 2:15. We never moved a rod until noon. We initially trolled north along the east shore in 60fow and less looking for browns and LL. Planer boards with Rapallas and a lead core down the chute. Lots of sticks and leaves in the water kept us busy clearing lines. Crossed over to the west shore and continued with the north troll in 60fow and less. No leaves and no sticks,,, also no bites. Right around noon we decided to catch a few lakers before we had to pull out. Moved out into 100fow with riggers at 70’ and 90’. In the next 2 hours we boated 4 lakers (all nice size) and lost 4 others. Never saw a lot of fish on the screen except when we crossed from east to west side. Fish were 150’ down or more in 250+fow. Water temp stayed at 38.7deg. Calm wind and an occasional light breeze, mostly sunny, and was 58deg air temp when we pulled out. Hard to be disappointed just because we could not find the browns and LL. Saw one other boat.

    Cayuga Cayuga

    Thursday forecast is for calm wind becoming SW at 5mph. Too windy for me today. Do you have any info on the ramps and parking lot at Treman?

    Cayuga Cayuga

    Thanks. Been to Taughannock many times. My fishing buddy has a real hard time climbing down the ladder at the end of the dock. His knees are not what they used to be. Not sure if the trip will happen but if it does I will surely post a report.

    Cayuga Cayuga

    I live 2 hours south of Ithaca. We got less than 1” of snow over the last couple days. Based solely on school closings it looks like Ithaca area got substantial snow. It looks like Thursday 3/16 will be a great day on Cayuga. Can anyone tell me if the launch at Treman is usable or is there deep snow in the parking lot? thanks
  6. All but one of our lakers were caught in 120-150fow trolling along the west shore. Riggers were at 100’ and 70’.
  7. In case anyone is interested: Treman State Park launch is usable. I launched out of Treman State Park in my Fishmaster 196 today. Lake water level was 380.11. Outboard kicked up some mud but we had no problems. Not a hint of ice. We had hoped to hit some LL and browns but that did not happen. Picked up a dozen lakers though. Saw one other boat. Water temp hovered around 39.5. Great day to be on the water.
  8. My guess is that the Sodus Bay Coast Guard Launch is free of ice. Anybody know for sure?
  9. How many of these are new? Does $110 include shipping? thanks
  10. All this warm weather!!! Anybody know if Treman State Park launch is free of ice? Water level this morning is 380.35 and I have launched there when the water level is 379 without any problems. If you have any info on ice please let me know. Thanks in advance.
  11. Wow, nice smallies. No perch in Cayuga. Give Keuka a try. perch fisherman have tight lips.
  12. Well,,,, sittin at the Black North doing what I do best. Pulled out at 2pm. Fished out to the 32 line. Saw bait pods from 29 line out into 32. Caught a 9 inch king. Never saw more than half dozen hooks on my Lowrance. Tomorrow if the weather cooperates. total for today 2 fish didnt get skunked!
  13. Launched at 6:30. Set up in 300fow. One 5lb king in 504fow down 80’. On meat rig. 10am now and not much on screen. At the 29 line now with 7 other boats.
  14. Sounds like a good plan to me. Thanks guys. I will let you know what happens. I’m due for a good day. Haven’t been on Lake Ontario since 7/27. And I feel it’s coming!
  15. We will be fishing the Oak on Monday/Tuesday 8/22 and 8/23. Any recent intel would be appreciated. I’ll let you know how we make out.
  16. Thanks for the report. Nice fish. Too bad for the ex-net man.
  17. Launched at 6am and pulled out at 2:30pm. Ran right out to 200fow, set up and trolled North. Had a blank screen for nearly 4 hours. At 11am we were back in 250fow when things picked up.. Between 250fow and 150fow we picked up a nice steelhead, 4 kings in the 10-15lb class , and a few dinks. All on spoons down 70’ to 90’. Water temp down 90 was 45deg.
  18. Everything has been sold EXCEPT the Happy Troller Trolling Plate
  19. Have not fished the Oak since May of 2021 and discovered NEW and very NICE ramps at the public launch next to Black North Inn. Launched at 5:30am. Fished 85fow out to 200fow for the first few hours. There was a pretty stiff wind out of the SW. About 9am the water calmed down nicely and we moved out into deeper water. Our best water was 250’ out to 350’. Down 65’ water temp was 49 deg. Caught 3 small kings, a decent coho (all down 65’) and had a great (short lived) battle with a steelhead that hit a jointed Rapala off the lead core. Ha! How about this! While trolling at 2mph we ran over a submerged log. The log knocked my transducer out of position slightly. Instantly I could see all 4 Downrigger lines on my Lowrance as clear as a bell! Previously I could only see the lines sporadically. I’m leaving the transducer in it’s new position!
  20. Seamomster18- I should be around on Thursday. However, if the weather is cooperative I will be fishing on Cayuga or Lake Ontario. Give me a shout on Wednesday.
