  1. Thanks Doc! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Thanks Reel Doc! I appreciate the advice!
  3. 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!
  4. 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".
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Frogger.... Sounds like a plan.
  10. Frogger. I'm interested in the 6 if it's for sale.
  11. Ric66 - Yes I've been out when a north south wind picks up. It's crazy how fast the lake gets rough and the waves start capping. Never fished canadice but I've been thinking about it since it's almost the same distance and my hemlock luck has been ZERO. Thanks for the suggestion and set up. I'll try the north end when I go.
