  1. Launched this morning from the state park at 6:25. Stayed on the East side in 90-120 feet of water. Lots of marks 50 to 75 feet. Couldn’t buy a bite though. Ran a rigger and a diver and a lead line. Tried spoons and flies and even a x rap. Changed speed and still nothing. Cut across and fished back north up the west side. Marked less fish but had one hit on the diver running 55 ish in 70 feet on a green and silver flutter spoon but didn’t hook up. Then the lake got too rough for my little boat and my boys started getting wetter than they wanted to. Ah well. Still nice to get out on the water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Well I guess that makes the choice easier! Thanks for the Reply AnglerSS! I'll let you know how I do!
  3. First of all I want to thank you guys for your past help! It's always appreciated! Now I want to ask for your opinions for my trip to Keuka this Saturday. I'm an 1hr 10 min Drive to the State Park (Branchport) and a 1 hr 20 min drive to Hammondsport. I'll be launching a small boat with limited range. I'd like to troll/jig for Lakers and Salmon and maybe trout early (6-9ish) and then warm water game fish for a bit after the bite dies down. I've only fished Keuka once on a friends boat and we launched out of Branchport. We were perch fishing in the fall so very different trip. Which would you launch from if you had to make the choice given my range is probably limited to 3-4 miles with my small boat with good conditions.

  5. Thanks Reel Doc! I appreciate the advice!
  6. Beautiful Fish! Going to make the drive from Rochester this Saturday. Will be my first time fishing Cayuga. Planning on launching a small boat out of Taughannock. Any recommendations on going north or south from the launch? I'll try staying shallow based on your guys success!
  7. Did they sell or did it fall through?
  8. Three of us braved yesterday's rain and wind to try and find some perch in canandaguia yesterday. We put in at a private launch in cottage city around 8:30 am. Lots of rain and lots of wind. Found some schooling around there in one of the usual spots in the 18-24' depths. Water temp was 63. Bite was on and off until 11:30 when it died completely. Since we had the lake completely to ourselves we motored around and tried a few spots with no real luck. Tried the floating island and marked fish but only caught a few right at the 22' depth. Finished up the day with 40 or so keepers between the three of us. Cold and windy but Beat a day at work. Here's a pic of some as I was sharpening my filet knife. The largest here measured close to 13".
  9. Sk8Man... Don't worry about that! I was not at all offended. I KNOW its a small boat and not designed for what I'm doing with it. I am definitely pushing the limits and I should probably dial it back on the trolling until i pull the trigger on that new boat! Or at least just pull a diver or two like I have been. I'm just always looking for better ways and more productive fishing. That's how I found you guys! Which BTW this forum is amazing. Lots of Kudos to all the guys (and girls) of the forum for sharing all their knowledge. So many people willing to help and share what works for them. I've learned a ton. Its like an apprenticeship program on a fishing boat without the seasickness... And that's crazy. I've been on a few small whalers but never out into the big O... I totally agree!! Thanks! -Steve
  10. Zack... I do want to... Workin' on a bigger boat first. Fell into the "cheap boat" trap a few years back. Learned my lesson and won't repeat it twice.
  11. Any steel line you would recommend? I stopped in Cabelas in Cheek-ta-Vegas on Friday and was lost in the fishing section for a while.... And does anyone run a snubber of your diver? I have gone back and forth sometimes using it and sometimes not. Thanks britty -Steve
  12. Npike...I've tried to adjust my fishfinder to pick up the thermocline but never could quite figure that out. Do you use a temperature gauge built into your fishfinder or is it a whole separate unit? Yes Safety is definitely my #1 concern when I'm out in the boat. Its one thing to row it around a little pond in the summer. But when It's loaded with (1) 185# Adult (1) Huge deep cell marine battery,trolling motor, poles,anchor, etc... its loaded! I really watch the wind and don't even try to go out in any chop. Its just not worth it! And that North South wind that can pick up on Hemlock is no joke... I was caught out in it once a few miles from the launch. By the time I made it to the launch a few waves came VERY close to breaking over my transom. Not fun. Thanks for all your suggestions and concerns! -Steve
