  3. Well I had to bite the bullet, get in my car, and drive 2.5 hours up to Sodus to check out the ramps since no one seemed to know the status of ice. Good news, Bad news. As of noon on 3/19/22 the launch next to Arnies was NOT usable. A large chunk of ice blocks the ramp. At first I thought the ice could be pushed away but it is frozen around the poles holding up the dock. See picture. There is also a sheet of ice about 500 yards out in to the bay. I am not sure if you could get around it. BUT The launch next to the Coast Guard Station is in good shape and clear of ice. See picture. Much better than last year when the water was too low to use the ramp next to Arnies and the ramp next to the Coast Guard Station was blocked with construction equipment.
  4. Has anyone been to the Launch next to Arnies Marina on Sodus Bay OR the launch next to the Coast Guard Station? Thanks for any info on conditions.

    Cayuga Treman Launch

    UPDATE launched out of Treman this morning. No ice and plenty of water for my fishmaster196 Parking is a little scarce due to the many boats in dry dock. Water temp hovered around 37.5. Water was muddy in canal but clear on the lake. Picked up 14 LL, all were small, biggest was 14”. Great day on the water. Tried to get a laker but just could not get them to bite. They did a lot of looking but no takers. now I need to find out the status of the public launch On Sodus (across from Margaretta Rd, next to Arnies Marina. Or maybe the launch next to the Coast Guard station.

    Cayuga Treman Launch

    Thanks for the info. The current lake level is 381.7ft. I have been able to launch my fishmaster 196 at Treman when the lake level was 379ft. Hopefully no large build up of silt at the ramps. Tomorrow looks like a great day to be on the water. Thanks again
  7. 3 weeks ago the launch at Treman was locked in ice. Anyone been down by Treman launch recently? thanks
  8. Thanks for this info. The early season “this boat launch is open and free of ice” is very much appreciated.
  9. Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I ran a wire up into the Pee hole and it seemed OK. not being satisfied I pulled the hose off and blew through it, all seemed OK still not satisfied I blew compressed air into the pee hole. Compressed air flowed freely out of the water inlet on the lower unit. so, I have the water pump ordered and I think I will follow real docs advice and post a note in the this old boat section. many thanks for the responses.
  10. The ramp at Taughannock was in good shape on 2/21. Most of the snow and ice is gone and plenty of parking. The lakers were hungry but never did come in contact with any LL nor Browns. After leaving the ramp we trolled south along the west shore in 100 fow. Most fish came from the 70’ Downrigger’s. First trip in 2022 and my Yamaha 9.9 kicker wouldn’t pee. Got home, pulled the thermostat and it opened just fine in boiling water. Left the thermostat out and fired up engine with ear muffs on. Still did not pee. Ordered a water pump kit. Never had to replace an outboard’s water pump. Videos on YouTube make it look straight forward although I never found a video for a 9.9. Any advice/precautions for me would be appreciated. Thanks
  11. I bought 3 Tasco trail cams from Walmart back in August. I believe they were $29.88 each. The Tasco cams are way better than the 2 Stealth cams I have that I paid $60 for.
  12. Finally took the plunge and spent 2 days fishing walleye on Lake Erie, Irving NY area. First time for us. The walleye were there and fairly easy to catch. At 6:45am I counted 37 boats within my view in the 60-70 fow area, and this was on a Wednesday! crawler harnesses and purple spoons worked for us. Never had a hit on any of my sticks. Lake Erie gets rough QUICKLY. Very nasty west wind. We jig for walleye on the Susquehanna. I think I prefer jigging. Number 1 problem was they hit very lightly. On Wednesday we boated about 20 fish before getting blown off the lake. ALL 20 fish were reeled in ( and discovered on the line) while checking the lines,,,,, never once saw a rod move. Maybe lighter cannon balls would work better? Tried barely pinching the line in my Scotty releases but that just caused many false releases. I like it better when a king hits and the drag screams and everybody runs around on the boat. Nice big fat walleyes! Very easy to see them on the screen on the bottom (look like lakers). Don’t get me wrong,,, had a great time and caught some nice fish.
  13. First: The Launch next to Arney’s Marine. I launched and retrieved my Fishmaster 196 without much difficulty. Water is deep enough at the ramp. Biggest issue is that the dock is so high, you have to step way down into your boat and step way up (climb) out of your boat. Otherwise not a problem. First fish (king) was at 7:30am, guessing around 10lb, 250fow down 90’ with a green with black ladderback R&R spoon. lost another in 300 fow. About 30 minutes later. Nothing for the rest of the day. Pulled out at 1pm. very few marks and few bait pods on screen. Down 90’ it was 49deg in 300fow.
  14. Pappy, did you launch at the public ramp next to Arnie’s Marine?
  15. Bosun Cowboy, you were right. Posted the tractor on FB Marketplace on Tuesday and sold it on Thursday evening. thanks for the tip

  18. Got blown off the lake by noon. Wind forecast for 6/25 doesn’t look good at all. probably going to bag the fishing for tomorrow and wait for a nicer day.
  19. Arrived and launched at noon on 6/23. Set up in 150fow and headed north. Scattered marks. Hooked up in 285fow. I’m sure it was a nice king but it was short lived. No idea why but my rod broke in half!! Tried the old hand lining but that lasted 3.5s at which point I lost my spin doc and mag green/black spoon. Then I got my copper line tangled in one of the rigger lines. The current was very strong. My Lowrance gave me a ground speed of 3.2 while my fish hawk down 90 was 2.0. If you are out Of Fair Haven on 6/24 or 6/25 give me a shout, fishmaster 196, on channel 68. If I am catching I’ll let you know where. Launching NLT 5:30am.
  20. Yowza!!!! That’s not for me. I prefer fewer boats.
  21. Pulled into the ramp area next to Black North Inn at 6:45am,,,,, not a single trailer in the parking lot. I immediately thought the water must be too low to launch. Fortunately there is plenty of water at this ramp. Fished until 3pm and never saw more than 5 boats. picked up 3 lakers in 175fow then a small king in 150fow. Lost another 4 fish, and a spoon, over the course of the day. never saw what looked like a charter boat either. In175fow and down 90 water temp was 41 deg. Surface temp 52.
  22. My go to launch is in Sodus Bay next to Arnie’s Marine. Last time I was there was on 3/21/21 and the water was way too low to launch. The launch next to the Coast Guard Station was blocked with construction equipment. anybody launch there recently? thanks
