  1. Yeah whatever it is it’s still out there lol. Good luck to you all
  2. Launched out of taughannock around 1230 with my dad. We started south because we also go north towards the Girl Scout camp. We marked tons and tons of bait and fish from the surface down to 50’ then here and there afterwards to 150’. I always run two riggers along with cheater lines. Spoons were Greens, oranges and purple because they always produce fish for us so that’s what I had out. They wanted nothing todo with us so after a couple hours I decided that we should head north towards the camp where we always get lakers. Didn’t marked much but did some circles and landed two small lakers. Then this happens! We troll back to the launch and just at 645pm when it’s getting to be dusk. The one rigger goes off hard. This sounds crazy but the rigger was set at 75’ and I had the spoon 75’ behind the ball. By the time my dad put it in neutral and grabbed the net, the fish was literally underneath our boat then in front of our boat. I walked around the boat 3 times with it then it seemed like I was stuck. Not sure if he dove down in the weeds but I held him tight for maybe 10 minutes. My dad said we were in 234’ according to the fish finder. However the fish finder reads 0.0 for depth half the time due to not knowing enough about it. So now it’s getting dark and my dad is nervous about taking the boat out lol. So I just gave more pressure, all of a sudden it breaks lose and I feel a couple tugs so I reeled about 5 ft and it seemed like I was stuck again. Gave more pressure to the point where it broke my line. Guy coming out said either a big laker or brown. We’ve fished there about 3 dozen times and never encountered this lol. We’ve caught tons of 6lbs lakers there. The video is when I was about to break it. Kinda despressed to think of what it was but still a fun beautiful day to be out.

  3. Hello was wondering if anyone has been out of taughannock lately trolling with spoons and how they’ve been making out. Thinking of coming up tomorrow. Thanks In advance.
  4. its more shallow on the left, goes up on an angle. maybe 3.5 ft
  5. launched around 230 and trolled between launch and boyscout camp. Marked lots of stacked fish between 10 to 35fow right out infront of launch. A few big marks between 40 and 60'. Landed 8 short landlocks(16 to 17") in 20 to 30fow and picked up a 25" laker in 60fow. All came from orange or green spoons.
  6. Yes you can make it under bridge, stay to the right although many many boats were coming and going right down the center
  7. sweet thanks for the help i appreciate it.
  8. alright kool thank you, any colors hitting more then others? Last year orange spoons and green spoons did real well for us but i read that purple and silvers are hitting them.
  9. heading up in the morning anyone having luck with spoons or can tell me where to go with the riggers? Second year up at cayuga and have only fished by the boyscout camp. Thank you guys

  13. Great that's awesome, I will call very soon, thank you
  14. This is a far stretch but I figured it ask. Looking for a top or in closure for a 2002 lund pro v se 1800. Can't seem to find anything other then one that looks real cheap. I would like a dodger top.
  15. Thinking of taking the boat out one more time. Has anyone been out of taughannock within the last week or so? I was up about 3 weeks ago and had alot of success.
  16. There was to many surface weeds to fish the cove in between the launch and girl scout camp, had to stay out more in about 350fow
  17. I was up wenesday and marked fosh from the top to about 130ft, I ran 2 riggers one at 69 and another at 100 with two cheater lines and did ok, landed a few all on dreamweaver oranges and greens. One had a cooper back that did pretty good. Good luck my friend
  18. Just got back from taughannock again, ran same setup in 350fow. Marked many fish and bait piles, landed 7 bows, only one 17inches. Rest were released. Alot more weeds then acouple days ago, especially about 300 to 400 ft of shore. Surface temp was 68
  19. Yeah I just started using them I never heard of it before.
  20. I kept it very simple because it was only me and my girlfriend and German Shepherd. I ram two riggers, one down around 100 and the other around 50 to 60. All spoons back 75 ft or so behind ball. All dreamweaver super slim spoons, orange and cooper and green and oranges. I didn't stack the riggers but I did add a cheater line with a spoon so I had 2 spoons on one line. Not sure if you know what a cheater line is but it's a line about 18 inches long with a snap swivel on each end and the spoon. Once the downrigger is down all the way with your first line, just snap the cheater on and it will go down to the bow in the line where it can't go any further. We caught a few on the cheaters so it's worth it. I usually add 2 poles per downrigger but it was more of a relaxing day. I don't use dipsys that often because I never had luck with them.
  21. Fished put of taughannock today from 12 to dark, caught abunch of small bows like 10 to 12 inchea. Landed a 21 inch ll and a 19 inch laker. Fish finder was marking fish from the surface to about 120 ft. Lots of bait piles. I'll be back out wenesday. Oh the surface temp was around 62 I believe
