  1. Last few years have been a learning experience...generally a good one...only two or three negative trips so far out of well a lot... one drunk never allowed back, one psychotic child, also not allowed back that was spin your head around disturbing...they still had a good time...i didn’t..but generally a-lot of people of varying experience levels, like fisherdude says had knowledge came to learn and play with the equipment, which as long as you demonstrate knowledge you can use anything except the rigger with the probe on it...mostly took a-lot of knowledge from the guys here to start..and then read a ton and worked my butt off to get good at the lake...I have to say I dont know what happened prior to 4 seasons back but the fishery on Cayuga is outstanding.

  2. Unfortunately until the vast amount of boaters are forced to attend boater safety which everyone has to do phased in over several years .... many guys on the water have no knowledge of what those red and green lights on their boat are even for.... the optimist in me says it will get better the pessimist says probably not...

  3. I’m just curious I feel bad if I’m not sending a customer home with 5 plus fish... on Cayuga sometimes it can be hard other days not but I have a habit of giving people more time than they paid for if I don’t feel they have enough... this is not a full time business for me. More for fun and to pay off the toy...I’ve had days this year where weeds and fleas kicked my ass and the line clearing was exhausting but we fought through tried different spots still scored ... but I wonder how much they expect... no one ever complains .. just trying to adjust my expectations to what theirs are....

  4. So riddle me this... you charter a boat for you and three buddies to go out and fish.... what are your expectations and what is defined as a “good day”... Let’s say it’s a 4 or 6 hour trip ....truly interested in different perspectives... I have my definition what’s yours ? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  9. Second time this year I pulled a lamprey up on a fish in Cayuga... First time ever on a Salmon. The lamprey was two feet long ... longer than the fish...had a death grip just behind the gill plate and had eaten clear through the skin in a cylindrical patch. Once removed no way the fish would have survived.... in anger the lamprey was dispatched into multiple pieces with the filet knife...before it released...that said we have reeled in some where between 4-500 fish so far this season two reys only two or so with damage and no rey ...so what dec is doing is working...keep up the good Work...

  10. I work the lake regularly as a charter. Regardless if you have a new guy driving or not you are responsible for what your boat does. Particularly on busy weekends it can feel like combat trolling dealing avoiding others. I run 10 lines most days and if you are working a ledge and someone comes along and pinches you into a shallow its a pain...I had more pleasure boaters and jetskis passing within a few yards of my boards at high speed this weekend than ever it was like someone called a stupid boater festival..... if as described an apology is certainly owed... not a cool move Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  11. So here is the update my original rods were 1. Okuma cold water dipsy rod... and 2 Schimano scimitars.... for those that asked ... I did buy an okuma white diamond 10 foot with roller tip... I like it smooth reeling used it two days last weekend 120 a rod w shipping, my Dremel work on the okuma cold water gave that rod another year maybe will watch it... I ordered two 8’6 white diamonds with roller tips to replace the schimanos .... pricey but oh well Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
