  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Yowza!!!! That’s not for me. I prefer fewer boats.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 3/21/21 Read a post the other day that the ice on Sodus was nearly gone. Did the 2.5 hour trek up and discovered the water at the end of the dock ( ramp next to Arnies)is no more than 6 inches deep. You couldn’t even launch a canoe there without hitting bottom. Still a fair amount of ice around the Krenzer launch. And yes, the ramp next to the Coast Guard station is still closed.
  7. Just bought some new spoons from R & R Tackle. Great looking spoons at a fantastic price. Do yourself a favor and take a look at their spoons. You can find them at: mytacklebox.com
  8. I saw no indication that work was being done to the ramp.
  9. Spoke with Tracy Durham, Town Clerk, via email concerning the boat launch next to the Coast Guard Station. Her reply was: “I would dare say that ramp might not be avail for a while”. If anyone notices the launch next to Arnies becomes clear of ice, please let me know. Bear Creek will have to do for now.
  10. Thanks. Bear Creek may be an option. I believe one must purchase a launch permit from the Town of Ontario. Am I correct?
  11. In case you were wondering: The launch next to Arnie’s Marine is still very much locked in ice. Buzzed over to the launch at the Coast Guard Station to take a look for open water. MUCH road work going on with detours and single lane areas in place but finally got to the ramp. Plenty of open water but the ramp is blocked off with construction equipment and rip rap. I have always stuck with fishing for browns in March out of Sodus. Does anyone know how long the Coast Guard ramp will be unavailable?
  12. Treman is fine. I launched my Fishmaster 196 at Treman last week. I use this site for water levels on Cayuga. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/uv?cb_62614=on&format=gif_default&site_no=04233500&period=45&begin_date=2018-10-04&end_date=2018-10-24
  13. Out at 5:45am, went right to 155fow. Trolled until 9:30 when we landed a laker, 10 minutes later an 8lb steelhead, 5 minutes later a coho. Trolled until 3:15 when we got our next hit but broke off at the leader. All spoons, all 40-70’ down. Beautiful day on the water. IMO Sandy Pond seems to be more for pleasure boaters than fishing boaters. That’s fine but man that skinny water inlet sure gets crowded.
  14. Orange spoon took the steelhead. Purple/w black took salmon.
  15. All spoons and yes we marked quite a few fish. Most were down between 40 and 80.
  16. We set up in 100 feet of water at 10:30 AM Kept looking for 200+ feet of water but never found it. We caught two small kings and one 10 pound steelhead in 155 feet of water. Straight out from the inlet. The two small kings ranged in the 2 to 3 pound range and were both caught 50 feet down over 155 feet of water the steelhead came 70 feet down in 155fow. Drinking beer at 5:30pm. gonna go right back out to 1:55 in the morning first time at Sandy pond for us. I don’t much care for the inlet.
  17. Launching mid morning on 6/17. 5:30am launching on 6/18 and 6/19. I will holler on 71 when I start yanking them over the rail.
  18. We will be fishing out of Sandy Pond Wednesday-Friday. We will post reports. If anyone has any “good” news please pass it along. thanks
  19. Thanks for the report. Much appreciated.
  20. Same with us. Blank screen. Trolled from 6:30am until 1:00pm from 50fow out to 230fow. Surface temps steady at 54deg. Down 70’ temp was 41 deg. Did I mention blank screen? we were tickled pink to hook a steelhead and landed 1 laker. But man was it a beautiful day on the lake.
  21. Launched at 6:30am and pulled out at 2pm. Tried in close for browns for first 2 hours. Stayed in 20-30 fow. Had 3 hits but missed them. Moved out into 100-160fow and picked up 3 lakers on riggers/spoons. Very little to look at on screen. But man was it a beautiful day on the water. Water temp wanted to stay at 46.8 deg and 41deg down 90’. We did find some 50deg water straight out from the inlet. We thought it would be crowded being the start of memorial day weekend but it was not.
  22. Looking for bucktail jigs from 1/4 to 1 oz. Let me know what you have.
  23. Yowza. Makes sense. And spot on with the musky fisherman. It belonged to an old time musky fisherman.
