  1. 15# Shark Weight Black, one only. like new condition black can drop off between Pine City NY and Sodus Point or arrange for a pick up 75.00
  2. I fish Sodus, yes water is low. Using public launch is very difficult and a little unsafe because the dock is so far off the water. Small boats, jet skis etc use it, but to launch, tie off and park is nearly impossible. there are several other places, all 6-12 miles away
  3. A couple of additional pictures also price reduction to 7800.00
  4. Thanks again for the info, my first timers cancelled but I headed out solo this morning expecting to find fairly calm conditions, the forecast was wrong! The bay was even choppy! I have a gps location for the depth people suggested that’s been great for several years, started setting up in 170, by 190 outside dipsey/wire takes off, nice king. Had him ready to net and downrigger releases, he fights the rod holder while I net first one. Rigger fish escapes! Tried to turn around, no good, brought in lines and headed to shallow water, until it rained. i think it could have been a great day, weather and waves were bruttal
  5. Thank you all for the information! Having a reasonable starting point with only 4 or 5 hours to fish is very helpful.
  6. Does anybody have any current Sodus area intel to offer? Headed up this week with two first timers, hoping to hook them up! thanks
  7. I had the same thing happen and lost the probe! The Cannon customer service rep was very nice and responsive however would only send new Cannon cable at No Charge. She was polite and explained it happens often, “we get bad cable from our manufactures”! When it happened the second time I changed my cable on both downriggers.

  9. Hillside posted a Sodus Report which is great, it’s nice to have guys sharing the basics on here about Sodus area. i headed up today for first actual trip, first quick run was to make sure everything worked. i dry store so launching is a pain in the a.... got out to 180 set some stuff out and by 220 first king, medium. Turned a little east and by 260, big king. Made a big circle , didn’t find much, back to mark and at 260 another king. two on wire dipsy, flasher fly the other on rigger spoon. temp break was right at 100, fish were all there and below to 170 down steady morning! good luck
  10. Only fished for a couple hours, one bait pod at about 125’ with a couple of fish , looked like a laker deal, fished out to 225, headed back. No other bait, and only a couple of marks no hits talked to one other guy putting boat away, his comment was “it’s been brutal”
  11. I launched this morning at the public launch right past Arnies. I would not recommend launching there, it’s tough. i have a 23’ Cuddy style, you couldn’t put outdrive down, had to paddle out a bit. had to get in the water putting in and taking out not sure about other options
  12. Has anyone fished in or around Sodus in the last few days? any information to share would be appreciated, making an trip up to start the season this week. thanks
  13. There is great advice given to you here! Not that many years ago Warrens bait shop in Sodus ran old wire line or downrigger cable and hung used spoons from them. They sold the used spoons for a dollar each. i bought many spoons off of that wire, including several old NK-28’s, I’ve got countless fish on the old NK’s , still have them and they have been repainted twice. I still haven’t found anything that consistently catches more fish. those and moonshines, mostly mags, are about all I run for spoons. i try to just target salmon, other spoons for the other species
  14. Will separate rod and reel, if someone needs one or the other
  15. Browning Magnum Dipsey Rod PT 29 with Great Lakes LC 47LC high speed retrieve reel. Rod has twilit tip and reel is spooled with wire line. the rod and reel are in good shape and work well wire is fine,I fished with it last summer 125.00 Located in Elmira/Watkins Glen area Fish out of Sodus, headed up to start early June
  16. Lots of buyers except for the actual money part still for sale!
