  1. Thanks. DEC diaries show very few, but I know the charter captains down in Hammondsport boat them occasionally.
  2. Keuka Lake Landlocked Salmon Basic Technique? Can anyone point me towards the basics of targeting landlocked salmon on Keuka Lake? I've been able to locate and successfully apply specifics to the lake trout. (Jigging white tube jig works best for me, I prefer jigging to passive downrigger trolling) If anyone can share a particular lure & method that will put a salmon in the boat, or send me to a Keuka-specific guide, that would be great. Thanks in advance.
  3. No round gobies, but 8 pickerel helped take the sting out of boating no lakers on Saturday. Only went around the Bluff. Are they all down in Hammondsport now?
  4. Glad you got them to open up.
  5. Went back out Saturday. Jigging with a white tube jig from the Bluff up to Branchport in everything from 50 to 160. No hits whatsoever. One small pickerel on a spoon right before I gave up after five hours. Free worms? "No thanks", say the fish. Several boats launching out of the State Park. No problem with the water levels now. Lots of trolling going on, but I didn't see anyone bothered by trout. Bass guys hitting every dock on the lake. Branchport was rough & windy while the Buff point was calm. Watch out for a debris plume as you approach the State Park & Branchport. Tree branches, weeds, dock parts, and lumber scraps have all collected in this area. Worst hazard was a mostly sunken log. Hit a large tree branch on the way south, caught up in the prop, leading to one of those "What the Hell?" moments before discovering the problem. I did get the motor tuned up, which was the actual purpose for going out.
  6. The water is very low at that launch right now, my prop can verify. And I'll second your thoughts on the great neighbors who very much appreciate quiet, clean, respectful boaters.
  7. Here' s the info on the Hammondsport launch http://www.townofurbana.com/boatlaunch.htm
  8. Town launch in the village is "Residents Only" and equipped with parking lot gates opened by an electronic key fob. The motel next to the launch http://www.keukalakesideinn.com/ has its own launch, but I don't know what they're charging. I thought they were closed for the season.
  9. That was the intended target area, but the motor wasn't giving me that feeling of reliability. What were you using?
  10. Yes, "contacts" as in sonar contacts on the 1990s era LCD screen. None "contacted" my jig in any way.
  11. Went out on Saturday to the point of the Bluff from 10 ft out to 150 ft. (Actually 150 back to 10, a few times) No luck. Vertical jigging with a 1 oz white and a bit of Dipsy Diver with a silver spoon down to 75 or so. No consistency on contacts. Some at 35, some at 75, some at 138 in 140 ft. Got pretty rough as the warm wind picked up. Just happy I could hit the lake in February. Time to tune that outboard.
