    Seneca Lake Legend

    I fished with Don a few times. he was a great guy who was always willing to give you info on the fishing in Seneca. Another old timer gone.

    has anyone ever tried leadcore on a downrigger with a long leader to keep the fleas off your line.

    fished Canandaigua yesterday with no luck and the fleas were terrible. was using see flee and it was the first time for me that it did not seem to help.

    nltd fb group discuss adding cayuga

    I am going to throw my two cents in on the bass tournaments. they dictate where I fish on the weekends,they take over the launches,i hate being told by the caretaker at the launch when I should quit fishing as to avoid conflicting with the end of the tournament. I have no problem with a bass or any other kind of tournament I just think they could be a little more respectful of the boats that are not participating.
  5. crestliner suremount mounting brackets I have a crestliner 1650 with the suremount mounting brackets. has anyone used dipsey divers with the rod holder bracket. these brackets seem secure but it is hard to believe one little set screw will hold them. thanks for any input.
  6. weighted wire line does anyone know where you can get weighted wire line? supposed to replace copper.
  7. crestliner 1650 motor size for trolling I am looking at a crestliner 1650 wt to buy. will a 60 hp mercury four stroke be okay for trolling. thanks for any advice

  9. crestliner suremount downrigger mounting bracket I am thinking about buying a crestliner boat and just wondering if anyone with a crestliner has tried these brackets.
  10. cny mike what size motor do you have on your boat
  11. size motor for trolling on a crestliner 1650 I am going to purchase a Crestliner 1650 and I was just wondering if a Mercury 4 stroke 60 horse would be alright for trolling. I don't want to bother with a kicker. Thanks!

    How many Downriggers>?

    you should have at least 4 foot booms on the outside riggers and keep them high and the inside downriggers should be deep. you also need to keep them all as far back as you can get them. they should be mounted on a board. 2 riggers is fine with cheaters and dipseys, leadcore and copper as the other two lines. 4 poles is fine nowdays.
  13. thanks again cny mike I appreciate the info. they look good to me.
  14. thanks cny mike that is the boat I am looking at. how far back do the brackets go and I like to run my downriggers out the back. will I need 4 ft. booms. thanks for your help.

    drop my weights down to 5 to 10 ft. off the bottom sometimes. hit bottom many times in the finger lakes but never got hung up. just pay attention when you are running them close to the bottom. the downrigger will bounce like crazy when you hit.
  17. seth green rig rod I would like to know where to get a good seth green rig rod and some other seth green rig tackle. thank you for any help

    you will never have a problem with fluorocarbon as long as you use the 100% fluorocarbon and wet the line good before you clinch your knot tight. I think the fluorocarbon has more friction when you cinch your knot tight which can weaken it.

    Recomendations on downrigger cable ?

    I use the cannon downrigger cable. I always crimp two sleeves on the cable and make sure you leave enough slack so it wont pull through.

    canandaigua lake

    I fished the south end this morning and caught one small rainbow on a cheater with a Sutton 44. I also had 3 lakers and another rainbow that I lost close to the boat. all fish were on spoons. no fleas but lots of weeds.
