  1. Dean's is a good suggestion, Sheldrake point might be an option too, haven't been there in a long time but I'm pretty sure it's free and is in pretty good Laker jigging territory as well. Seems like a good spot to launch a kayak.
  2. Here's a link to the online registration in case anyone wants to do it that way. We've had a good time fishing this in the past, hopefully there'll be a good turnout... https://give.salvationarmy.org/event/ithaca-fishing-derby-2019/e229451
  3. It all depends on the angle of the streak. I've learned over time a fish that shoots up quickly for your jig is very likely to hit if you start reeling up. Many times it will be more of a slow gradual rise off the bottom in which case I find it's best to continue on down and try your luck with bottom oriented techniques.
  4. How did you guys do this morning? I was only able to fish Saturday and Sunday, tough going for us both days. We boated 5 Lakers and one dink LL on Saturday and 3 Lakers Sunday. We were jigging both days, put in a long 13 hr day on Sunday. The strange thing we noticed was the insane number of fish showing up on our screens and chasing our jigs. Despite this they were VERY reluctant to hit anything. From 55 FOW out to 160 we saw huge numbers of fish, same story each drop of the jig -they would rise off the bottom slowly and then chase up 30 or 40 feet eventually backing off and settling back on the bottom. Everything we caught also had attached lampreys or fresh wounds. I'm thinking these were mostly small lakers maybe too small to actually hit and get hooked by the jigs? We boated 2 in the 6-7lb range and everything else was 18" or less. We actually saw fewer fish last weekend on Cayuga but the ones we did see we're big, healthy and hitting aggressively. Hopefully this means in a year or 2 all of these Seneca lakers will grow up and the fishing might be halfway decent.
  5. Weather looks pretty good for this weekend, hopefully there'll be a good turnout
  6. This was sold quite some time ago, sorry, I thought it had been deleted.
  7. I believe its the weekend before memorial day weekend, s the 18th and 19th. Haven't heard anything about a second weigh in yet...
  8. I went out in a 20' aluminum last weekend with no issues. Looked to be about 18-24" deep in the shallowest section. I'd keep your motor up high just in case. Didn't see any logs or debris at that time.
  9. Fishing has been pretty good from the boat, I would imagine you'd get a few from shore...
  10. I've been launching at Myers almost every weekend without any trouble or do you mean fishing from shore?
  11. I had it on a 14' aluminum boat, would go 21mph with 2 adults riding. But also idles down nicely for a 2 stroke, it purrs along at lowest throttle setting. Forgot to mention in earlier post the motor is located in freeville ny.
  12. I've got a well used but great running long shaft 18hp Johnson. For its age it runs very well, cold on choke it usually fires up third or fourth pull, after it's warmed up 1st or second pull. Good compression and plenty of power. I installed a new water pump impeller a few months ago and within the last couple years new plugs, wires and fuel lines. About a month ago I drained lower end and found a little water mixed in with gear lube. Either needs new lower end seals or possibly it's just the washers on the drain bolts. New seal kit online goes for about $50 I don't have the time to install seals and recently found a newer motor. I have this on Craigslist as well but haven't had much interest. Id really like to see this go to someone who would use it. Motor comes with 2 metal gas tanks in decent shape and spare prop as well. Looking for around $250, but open to offers and trades...
