    Hardwater report !!

    Lack of bait fish is about the same as over crowded. I guess they need thinned out some to let the bait fish repopulate the lake?????? Just a guess.......jk We do like fishing there and go often.......jk

    2018 trapping season

    I was planning a trip to the western part of the adaks but the weather shut me out. Here in Pa it is our week of fisher season and I have some sets out in good locations BUT not on sign like the last few years. I have no recent trail camera photos of fishers. My weasel boxes are getting mice but not the ermine I am setting for. /doing good on rats, seems to be more and more around each of the last few years and some hit the majic mark of 20 inches. Today was only my second zero day, so that is good too. Just a little fur each day is fine with me. Beaver starts the day after Xmas. that is it, did not know there was a trapping section here, this is good......jk

    kueka Ciscoe stocking

    Sk8man, we have started using our longer (about three feet long) ice fishing rods with 6 pound fire line on Mitchell 308 reels in Keyuka lake only for lake trout. Just to get more bang out of them, when they hit high up it really makes things interesting. As I have said before we have not gotten one over 24 inches in a LONG time. I am sure that there is one down there that eats these little trout but we have not hooked in to it in all these years. Also it has been three weeks since we have been there due to the weather.........k

    kueka Ciscoe stocking

    Hay I fish there a lot, almost every week. I was in the diary program but quit because it is hard to keep records in a 14 foot utility boat that one of you guys called the "trailer trash". I like that name. Since August we have started to see a lot more alwives in the bellys of the lakers. About every forth fish has them in their belly. the fish look healthier, but we have not gotten any over 24 inches. Numbers have improved from a low point last year. We also found one 6 inch brown so them must have stocked some browns at least. Anyway, just saying there is a slight improvement in the looks fo the fish and the bait fish too.......jk
  8. No word on other species that they caught? That seems weird to me. Thanks for the report, interesting.......jk

    2018-2019 Ice Season

    You are way more prepared than I am. It is trapping season here and the weather in miserable. So maybe I better pull some gear and get my ice stuff around. Always late with something......jk
  10. Cayuga Lake has much bigger fish and more of them.......jk

    any tips for a newbie on Cayuga?

    On the hit it is more reel than set the hook. Keep the rod tip motion to a minium so you don't have slack line ever. My drag is very tight, much tighter than you would think for ten pound line. I jig with ten pound crystall fire line(it is white so we can see where our lines are) and ten pound fluro carbon. No slack what so even or that jig head will shake the hook out of his mouth. Be careful near the boat to keep a lot of tension on while netting the fish and they are not bad tasting at all. Really pretty good tasting........jk

    Hot summer Browns

    After midnite they are right in the harbor entrances, used to catch a lot of them in between the jettys at Oswago and off the entrance to Sodus Bay. We would troll for walleyes and cast to the structure at the same time. we used all the Storm lures, they were great lures 20 years ago. These were not big fish, 28 inches probably the biggest but greagt hits and good fight. All summer long......jk
  13. Good info for you so far. What SK8Man said about them being half way down is right. You need a decent depth finder that you can see your jig/lure on down to the bottom. Hence the straight down verticle retrive so you can see what is going on. If You will see marks at 50 feet, then fish for them there, fish where they are If you don't see any try the bottom and watch with the depth finder(we call it our TV) for any signs of life. Try anything but you have to keep your mind open and positive. With just what has been siad here you will get some fish. A lot of us use 10 pound test, as there are almost no snags for them to wrap around on and we almost never snag on bottom......jk

    Keuka Fleas? 7/19

    Seahawk I am also painting the house---not today or probably not this week with the rain we are suppossed to get. I do the wood work prep in the day and when the evening cooling starts around 6 pm here start with the paint. Way past half way done, just a bit at a time. Also need a new garage roof before fall. Jigging sometimes we do get the fleas (hard to remove snot from the lines) but not often. Don't know when we will go again with this weather, but we will sneak out some day this week.......jk
