  1. Considering doing the same if I don’t have to go out past 200..
  2. It seems the fish in close up aren’t interested in much right now. By spinnys are you referring to spin fish? If so what are you loading them with?
  3. Decided to wake up late since I have 2 other trips planned this week and the wife also agreed to go if we left the house at 730am. started in 90fow and noticed that there was a pretty big current and the 50 degree break was down almost 90 feet. We stayed in 100 to 140 and marked bait and a bunch of fish at 90 and 60 but no takers. We decided to swap programs and dragged the bottom for about 45min with cowbells and landed 2 quick Lakers. We probably could of stayed there all day and picked them up. gamblers mag chartreuse up dot on cowbells took both.
  4. Nice Haul Dan! Was the bait still on the east side? I need to get me some of those suttons..
  5. Thanks Dan! I laughed as well after he showed it to me. We marked a pretty good bait pod in the cove after deep run park in 110fow. I wish we found it sooner because every time we went through it we got a hit.
  6. It would have been nice Les! This would of put me in first for the LT division.
  7. My buddies and I had plans to hit up lake O out of iBay to try some night bite action but again the forecast was wrong and the lake never died down. Instead we decided to try our luck on the north end of Canadaigua. I typically have no luck at night on the finger lakes so expectations were low but the beer was cold. Got lines in at 645pm right at the 100fow mark in the middle of the lake and followed that ridge all the way to the east side boating 2 lakers on watermelon spin n glos. Once the sun set behind the hills the green glo spin n glo got hot bringing in 3 more including this 12.56lb beauty that took almost 12min to get in the boat. (I will post the video on my YouTube at some point)
  8. This is a great thread with lots of insights and opinions. Like most complex problems the cause is a combination of things. All the finger lakes have zebra mussels but most of them still have baitfish. Cayuga, Seneca, Owasco, Canadaigua to name a few. Let’s not forget there was a major baitfish kill in the late 80s combined with the zebra muscles, chemical runoff and major development that most likely prevent the recovery of the lake. I chalk it up to the fragility of our ecosystem and any finger lake that has a bait kill due to a virus will most likely never recover
  9. Had some on owasco today. Nothing terrible like the damn weeds. Uhhg planers we’re useless..
  10. I had to get a pic myself. It was dwarfing the other browns on the board in the cooler. Amazing.. Fishstix I had the same thoughts as It would of snapped my line as I only run 12lb leaders on my spoons. I also don’t typically run mags on the finger lakes if that’s what he used? If my son was netting that fish he might of got pulled in. Lol..
  11. Durand beach is loaded with dead bait from end to end. I would imagine it’s the same to Webster and then Greece
  12. The tail is one clue but not the best indication if the LL is more matured the tail could square out. The best way is to look into their mouth at the teeth.
  13. Launched out of deans at 515 and shot right across and went south to long point. We setup in 100fow and had the boards out with a 1oz drop weight, riggers were stacky at 45 and 65. Picked up a nice rainbow on the boards using a Berkeley hit stick orange right away and then things went silent for about an hour until the 45 stacked went of and a rainbow went tail dancing across the water. things were quiet again so we packed up the boards and set divers to 50 and set the riggers stacked at 50 and 70 picked up 4 more Lakers before we called it a day. One on a musky torpedo diver with a flasher spin n glo back 200, 2 on a green dolphin down 70 on a pro troll flasher, one on cowbells down 90. Hopefully I will see some of you Saturday or Sunday at the canadaigua derby. I am bring the wife and youngest with me.
  14. What are double glos?
  15. Watermelon has been good ..
  16. I took a 1/2 day on Thursday and decided to hit up lady Keuka since I was going to be there Sunday for the FLTA and wanted to test a few spots. Launched from the state park in the dark and shot down to the hammondsport basin and had lines in by 515 out in front of snug harbor. I immediately picked up 2 small Lakers down 80 on green NBK stingers behind spin doctors. I shot up to the bluff after about an hour of nothing and put out some watermelon cowbells with some homemade spin n glos and got 2 more in about 30 min. I then pulled up and hit up the state park and picked up 1 and 1 miss on cowbells. loaded up the boat and drove back home and was back to work by 1pm.
  17. Was there a lot of boats out? Saw a thread that the bite died down hard with all the boat pressure.
  18. I am getting interference with my garmin plus cv fish finder and my fishawk x2 that both run on 77khz. I already have them on other sides of the boat but when the garmin is on 77khz the fishawk displays that error code. When I swap to 200 it starts working. I don’t like 200 as I can’t really see my downrigger balls and 77 lets me see fish chasing my setup. I have the GT-20tm transducer but it appears it only supports 77/200. I use the word appears because on the manual the fish finder itself states it supports dual frequency 55/200. can I just set the fish finder to 50/200 or will I burn out the transducer?

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 5/7

    Thanks for the report Dan!
  20. I need that 27h to make a matching pair. I am OCD like that. Having one has been bugging me. Pm sent
  21. There is currently a massive mudline out in front of the genny west to ibay. I think it’s from the dredging of the river? It’s so pronounced right now it looks unnatural. I will drive by on the way to pick up my kids and get a pic.
  22. Thanks for the report Dan! Lake O is tough fishing out of the rochester basin right now. Getting out to 100 feet and dragging the bottom for Lakers is what I have been hearing most folks doing. In my small boat conditions need to be perfect to venture out that far with no other boats around in the cold water. we need some warm weather
