  1. I stopped to taughannock to fish from shore for an hour before work this morning. Lots of boats going out. A couple in the water by the point and 3 or 4 waiting in line to launch
  2. No. Talked with a couple guys there that said jigging has been slow but guys fishing live minnows have been catching fish. I didn't have any bait and was jigging. I'll try again in a couple weeks
  3. I fished from shore there for an hour this morning. I walked over the bridge and the launch was good and clear.
  4. I'm interested as well. Not trying to step on your toes Ccowell1. If that sale falls through, let me know. I can meet in sodus. Thanks
  5. John Mann made my cover this past fall. Super guy, great quality, great price. Should have done it years ago. Trailers beautifully. The key is it fastens down with snaps along the side and has a drawstring to pull the cover tight around the boat. It uses bows for support, not poles, so they don't fall over. Its also really heavy fabric. Mine is a 16ft boat for size comparison.
  6. I ordered 2 sets of the carbontex drag washers from ebay for a couple old penn 930s I picked up this winter. I put them in last weekend. They seem smooth so far, but that's just from me testing pulling line. Seem like good quality but havnt landed fish on them yet. These old reels had leather drag washers so I'm sure the carbon ones will be an upgrade from them. Fingers crossed.
  7. Thanks guys. I'll probably order that pack from all seasons.
  8. Hi everyone. Does anyone know where to get the replacement surgical tubing for slide divers? Mine is shot after last season. Do I have to get the set directly from them, or has anyone gotten it anywhere else? Thanks
  9. Yes. Bought an okuma classic dipsey rod, took the regular tip off and put on a twili tip. It was my wire slide diver rod last season and was flawless. The rod was maybe $50, so cheap as well
  10. My PB Brown from Cayuga is 10lbs. To think this was almost twice the weight is really impressive! Had to be a blast to catch from shore!
  11. I had a cover made by John last October. He said he had no plans on slowing down and still had a bunch of work coming up. Hopefully he is still working. He did an amazing job on my cover.
  12. Very Nice! Yeah, it was a beautiful morning. That's for sure
  13. How did you make out? Was that you in the well craft with the pup that went out this morning? I was fishing from the wall at taughannock this morning. Could buy a hit, and I didn't see anyone from shore land anything. Man, that flat lake this morning has me itching to get the boat out
  14. Sounds good. Thanks everyone. I'm thinking the light action rod with 15lb main line to the leader would make it fun. Then when fleas show up go to heavier line. I think I'll add 2 of those light action ugly sticks to my rigger reels
  15. Hi all, I've been doing some reading and some thinking. I'm thinking of lighter rods for my fingerlakes set up. I've been looking at the ugly stick big water trolling rod in 8'3 light action. Anyone use a light action rod on cayuga? I'm currently using a ML but I think the light action would be fun, and could likely handle what cayuga can produce. It would only be used on the fingers. My king set ups are heavier. Thanks
