  1. Looking forward to the banquet and FLEA..
  2. Thanks Les! Cdga is an amazing fishery looking forward to next year!
  3. I am fully booked next weekend with Boy Scouts and the following with some Halloween parties so today was the dreaded put the boat away day. I store my boat at TJs marine in prattsburgh so we decided to hit up woodville on the way. Temp break was pretty tight at 68 feet. It was 50 degrees right below that and 65 4 feet up. we landed a few lakers and a nice bow along with a small perch on the 10 color and a smallmouth on the dipsey out 150. With the cold front rolling through I wasn’t expecting much. marked a ton of bait out infront of vine valley! If it wasn’t windy I would of just circled that area. see you all next year!
  4. A bunch of small boats in the creek this morning before sun up. I think most were hunting though because as soon as legal shooting time hit guns were a blazing.
  5. Lol we did the same thing and from the reports they had 4 footers and low numbers unless you went 10 miles out. The northern launch this time of year is pretty quiet which makes canadaigua a quick trip as I live in rochester.
  6. Great Job! We were on the northern end Saturday and also had a good haul!
  7. Thanks Scott! See you in keuka in a few weeks.
  8. Niiiiice boat. We were the white and blue glastron that waved around noon heading in! (my exact words to peter were that’s my dream boat) how did you do?
  9. Owasco is quickly becoming one of my favorite fingerlakes! Fished there Tuesday morning and then again on Sunday for the FLTA where we took first ever 1st place with a 4 fish 25lb-14oz box. Sunday all of our fish came on a spoon bite. The greasy chicken wing UV copper on a slide diver took 2 of the lakers and 2 bows. A standard sized small green dot DW on 10 color took the 9lb lake trout lunker on Sunday brought all the way in (100 yards) by my buddy Pete who is a novice fisherman ! The 1st highlight of the day was a bow doubleheader one on the rigger on a dirty white boy and one on the slide diver chicken wing where they jumped over each other. The 2nd highlight was a 6.5 lb laker that came off right at the back boat and when I went in to jump in after it with the net it just floated there so we ended up turning around and was able to net it before it swam back down. We had our gear parked at 47 feet all day with a pretty steady bite in 150 fow until the cooler was full at noon and we called it and watched the bills stink it up over a burger and beer at drifters.
  10. Nice trip! Have a great weekend
  11. The fees were present but were manageable with mono .
  12. Thanks Les! The north end launch was quiet Wednesday. Going to try Emerson on owasco Tuesday.

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 9/1

    After Dan’s last report on Canandaigua I couldn’t resist taking a morning off with my oldest to target some silvers. Met Dan at the launch at 530am and strategized quick to check if the east or west side was marking bait. Thanks for the westside tip as I never fish there with any luck. I didn’t mark much on the east side so we zipped over to the water treatment plant on the west side and we marked a ton of bait all the way south to menteth point. we target just silvers at first and lost 2 right at the boat immediately at 50ft on the riggers use glow spoons. We then had to more releases that blanked. Then we had a big strike on the 10 color with a copper Uv custom spoon from reel rage. Saw it jump 300 feet back and worked hard to get him in the boat. We also got a few lakers in the upper column on spoons on 10 colors. about 9am we slowed down to 1.7 and dropped the riggers tight to the bottom at 120 and picked up a triple (2 on the rigger and one on 10 color) on lakers. Until 10am we had a steady flow of lakers with one being over 10lbs. Thanks Dan for all the tips it made for a fun morning!
  14. Thanks Dan.. feel free to txt me if you still have my #.
  15. Nice report Dan! Hope to be out Wednesday morning with my son Jeremy. This report was super helpful
  16. This is my 3rd year bring my fishing boat up to for our annual (36) family vacation week on Keuka Lake! We had some great weather, delicious local foods and some great fishing! As usual I stopped up at Fishy Business and picked up a few spoons, advice on where to fish as well as my purchase from last year that he had still waiting for me that I left accidentally while loading firewood. Thanks Gerald! If your fishing Keuka make sure you stop up and get some honest advice and pick up some tackle from fishy! That watermelon northern king was HOT! Thanks again I fished out in front of the old green barn by the bluff for 4 mornings from 530am to 8:30am in various depths but the best was in 110 fow. The troll was really slow at 1.7 mph and the thermocline was at 60 feet. We marked a-lot of bait which after cleaning a few lakers for breakfast ended up being tiny perch. Last year we didn’t mark any bait so this was good but I would of like to see more diverse bait fish and not the perch. Running that slow allowed me to run 2 cowbell rigs down low just 5 foot of the bottom and then set the upper 4 rods at 35 and 55 feet down. Didn’t have any luck in the under 55 foot column even though we were marking fish there. Our best spoons were custom copper UV Reel Rage spoons that were painted and shipped super quick (thanks Scott) on the 5 color led core. We left them on both side all week and went 16/24 and a small mouth on those alone which would of made for a great week. We also brought in Thanks Brian at Ketchum Fish Charters for the led core suggestion. I honestly wouldn’t of brought those rods if you didn’t suggest it.. The watermelon norther king UV was also hot all week set at 40 feet down stacked bring in at least 2 lakers every trip The hammerhead aluminum watermelon UV cowbells with the gambler watermelon glow and one I made my self were on fire all week ring in 4 lakers per trip easy.. I also hooked up with tenatureboy and shared some intel as he was out on the bluff too. Hope mine was helpful.. yours was.. thanks.. Thanks for all the advice it made for a great time..
  17. Very nice report! Thanks for the details..
  18. I follow the Ketchum charter on the Facebook and they have been having good luck with bows. I will be there for the week starting aug 6th staying on the bluff. We should share Intel if your interested.
  19. I run braid until the fleas get bad end mid June and thrown on 100ft of sea flea.
  20. I bought the 4 pack of musky and shark and have added them to my arsenal with a lot of luck! I run either of them with the church tx-44 with really good results! 200 back on the shark gets me down about 50 feet. I like to run the shark with 100 feet out and snap on the weight and then back about 200 then clip on the board! This setup has given me the most luck with either a flasher fly or spoon! I have run cowbells with the musky down the slot and also have had alot of luck! I also use the krazywolf heavy tension releases with no failures for the snap weight.
  21. I have 2 with a white back that are standard and have had no luck! Look like I need to make an order
  22. I bought a ram mount from Amazon. Needs some extra screws from Home Depot. RAM Handlebar U-Bolt Double Ball... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000XDGJQI?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
