  2. Thank you but I alreadyordered form ?Copperline......jk
  3. Who makes the big jigs with the good gamagusku hooks? Address and telephone number please, thanks......jk
  4. We see green buoys at the bluff and have not see anything in the bellies yet. The fish seem health and in nice shape but I feel there are to many of them in the lake. 24 inches is our biggest in a while. They do bite a lot and we get a lot of bumpies but never fail to get a limit usually. Have not see any sign if bait fish on the depth finder or on the surface.....jk
  5. We are there every week, still good fishing but they are not over 24 inch often. I think way to many fish there, I have not seen a school of bait on the TV (depth finder) yet, but they all look healthy. 3-4 years ago they were sick looking, thin.......jk
  6. Keyuka for a lot of fish but few over 24 inches. They are a lot healthier than the ones last year and the two years before that. There are a lot of fish there, most every where over 70 feet and it seems the best depth is 120ish. I can't believe that you had trouble. We have fished at the state park and the bluffs. It is hard to find an area without fish. Friends fish iwth bait minnows from the small shop (607-794-2053) on the east side and they do better than we do, but I like jigging. Monday we got a limit in three hours and kept the ones over 20 inches.........jk Ps lakers only, no other trout fish are there it seems
  7. So at deans you dan not pay with a credit card anymore? I am from out of state if that makes any difference......jk
  8. Your saw bellies will work well. I jig about every week there but friends of ours were up at the state park two weeks ago and got 70 fish in three days using the saw bellies, you wont be disappointed. They fished right out from the park all the way down to the bluffs. Good luck......jk
  9. Keuka is open. Have been going up for the last month or so......jk
  10. We have been up every week and have seen no one fishing. My computer was down for a long time and for some reason just started to work again = might be me. we find fish every where on the TV some are biter but a lot are just lookers. /we only jig......jk
  11. 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

    Keuka lake

    Was nice while it lasted........jk
  13. 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
  14. You were casting from shore?? That sounds like cleo time to me. Thanks for the info.......jk
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. No word on other species that they caught? That seems weird to me. Thanks for the report, interesting.......jk
  18. 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
  19. Cayuga Lake has much bigger fish and more of them.......jk
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Lives up to 17 years?? And crosses with golden shiners (they are native, arn't they???) So they are going to make a new species = hybrid Goldend Rudd??????
  24. 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
