    Drifting Live Bait for Trout

    OK what baits are you allowed to use? Can you use any fish you catch as bait? That does not seem clear in the reg book. Also a bait shop told us we can only usenightcrawlers that we buy in NY. is that so? I realize you can not transport bait across certain roads but I am lalking about in the same lake, can you use any fish or parts of those fish for bait in the finger lakes????......jk /

    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    Use wht you have faith in. Why do you want to use something new. I still have two rods riggedwith 10 pound XT from years ago. Caught a lot LOT of fish on that stuff. Yes there are better and more expensive and better this and that. but you have to have faith in your gear. I use a lot of crystal fireline also.......jk

    Keuka Sewer Problems

    Was up there yesterday and all seems normal. No dead fish to be seen, sunnies were bedding big time and saw several decient sized bass. Lakers were biting and watched several trollers catch multiple fish. Water was still exceptionally clear and I think that they are zebra mussels that we see on the bottom. Lots of small lakers and they look healthy but nothing in their stomachs......jk

    Try jigging also. You will be amazed at the fight you get on 10 pound test hand held rod. There is a lot of real REEL good advise in previous posts here on this site......jk
  9. Fishyoo, we call them bumpies. Not sure what really iis going on but sometimes if you slow the retrive a wiggle and slow retirve for 10 feet then go back to normal they will take it. Try anything to convert the bumpies into fish. we even feel that on occassions they go by slow and they hit the line with their tail but don't hit. Lots of weird stuff going on down there......jk

    Keuka Launch site

    We used to laundh at the motel a lot, weekly for two years. I am sure some one of us caused the problem. His main interest of course is the motel and some noisy people coming in to launch distrurbed his sleeping clients. He was always real nice to us and has to run his business the best way he knows. I don't know this for a fact but that is usually what happens with to sportsmen, problems caused by us. It might have been trash but I never saw any laying around. Just my thoughs on the subject = we at times are our worst enemy........jk
