  3. I had a fish/freight train on the line yesterday that took me nearly 20 minutes to get to the boat. I was in 270 ft of water and he peeled me straight down near the bottom several times, couldn't stop him. I thought of a sturgeon possibly, because he felt stronger than just about any fish I've hooked into on Cayuga. Turned out to be a 33 1/4" lake trout when I finally landed him. I would've thought even bigger by the strength he fought with.
  4. I saw this today on FB, looks pretty nice... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/940610279791705/
  5. Nope. FLTA = Finger Lakes Trollers Association
  6. It's a club tournament... have to be a member of the FLTA to enter. They're always looking for new members for any fisherman/trollers interested in joining. It's a $20 per boat yearly membership, plus $25 per tournament. They typically have 10 tournaments per year, 5 different lakes, 2 on each. This year, the first 3 were canceled due to the virus. Trolling is the only method for fishing allowed in the FLTA. I'll be there Sunday, weather permitting. Good luck. Anybody interested in joining the club PM me and I can put you in touch with the guys that organize it.
  7. I picked up a couple of pretty chunky salmon nearby there Memorial Day weekend. And a good rainbow over there last year. Lakers have been pretty scarce for me in that area.
  8. Good call Les. I think you're right.
  9. I feel like the last 3 years in a row I said to myself, why are the fleas here so early? They've been showing up 2-3 weeks earlier every year the past few years. I remember telling myself late July is when they show usually, then last year it was early July. This year, mid June, crazy. I didn't expect to see them on Owasco yesterday, had I known I would have spooled up much heavier line. Still, the fish are there if you can keep your presentation clean. Good luck this weekend. I'd like to fish that derby, but I've gotta go visit my dad for Father's Day, maybe do some saltwater fishing.
  10. Most of the FLTA did well with lakers up to 9 lbs, some nice rainbows to 6.5, and 1 or 2 browns weighed. I personally and a few others had trouble finding any decent size trout... only landed 3 smaller lakers but did get one nice 28" 6.5 pound walleye. Fleas were extremely bad. Good luck.

    Canandaigua Fleas

    Fleas on Owasco today were thick too... didn't expect them this early. Seems they come earlier every year.
  12. 24 1/2” L x 18 1/8”1/2 W x 9 3/8” H top of the fuel fitting height is 11”
  13. Moeller 12 gallon low profile gas tank Excellent condition w/fuel connector attached $80 pickup in Ithaca or meet at nearby boat ramp.
  14. How's that book coming, Les? I'm ready to buy my copy.
  15. Cool. Yeah, I've got a few in the freezer I've collected from fish that have spit them out on my boat. It'd be easy to grab a bunch of the floaters on Seneca too.
  16. Thanks for the tips... I knew sawbellies were the best way to go, I just have been avoiding that method just cause I don't want to deal with buying live bait and keeping it alive. But, might try it sometime. Nothing like being out on a calm night under the stars.
  17. SK8man, I'm interested in night fishing... but would you say that would have to be live bait fishing? Or can you get them trolling the right spoons at night?
