  1. Bring them with you to Association Island I'll take'em off your hands
  2. One of my friends was really waning some perch … probably in the bay I assume
  3. Awesome feedback greatly appreciate it, did find a charter operation up there posting good kings and a mixed bag I have radar so pretty easy to see others
  4. So I am headed up to Association Island for 4 days in two weeks, so first week of August. I am looking for guidance, worth fishing for kings up there? Heard something about the Trench.....I don't see anyone posting about the area so just curious...worth wetting the lines while I am up there ? Any help appreciated..... Thanks
  5. Rule of thumb is about 1 mile every 100 foot of depth out of Oswego
  6. Just launched at wrights for my first time last week wide open ramps like six lanes perfect surface gets deep pretty quick very long docks only 10 bucks to launch. Went 6/10 on my run last weekend. Hitting meat/spoons/flasher flies....went straight out worked north and south hits between 150-350fow..... good luck...2.3-2.6 depending on direction and greens were good...
  7. Took my two adult children and captain Chris a friend we used to captain different boats on Cayuga to Oswego for a Friday evening Saturday morning trip. We moved boat from Cayuga dunked it in Friday started to fish and lost speed wheel off FishHawk on first drop … was windy after the storm and after three lost hookups decided a bonsai trip to fat Nancy’s for a repair was in order to make Saturday more productive… and it was bagged 6/10 all Kings thanks to Chris lending a hand converting my thinking to the big pond…
  8. Thanks partner long way from manual downriggers by the road side …
  9. I have to tell you I’ve had it out twice now and I’m in love especially with that huge Lowrance …!
  10. After the sale of the fishing business I took on a boat partner and bought this Proline then stripped all electronics, switches seating vinyl sanded buffed polished and installed all new panels, 38 mile radar, Ais, FishHawk, riggers etc pics before and after. She is now named Freedom and will be prowling Cayuga, Oneida,and Ontario….was a ton of work but we took her out today and bagged her first fish on Cayuga…. Still waiting on Cisco rod holders ….
  11. I appreciate that..... but I don't want to run a charter anymore, it was fun.....I want my life back I have a full time job this boat is for fun only...and maybe a few old clients that have become friends.......I don't have any problems finding those that want to crew the boat fish or otherwise lol
  12. So after 5 years of operations of Indepth Fishing Adventures I sold the boat and business to Zach who worked to learn and earn his license and will be running it full time. Also a long time member here. I will be moving to recreational fishing and doing some fishing on Ontario next year!! My new to me ride is below… little smaller and faster …. For all you regulars thanks for the support and encouragement over the years it was a fun ride… but on to the next chapter …
  13. For anyone to call a Charter Captain on this forum "an idiot) for speaking his mind respectfully is unacceptable, and frankly why I stopped posting on here very often. Nick openly shares on this site and has shared with me during a National Tournament mind you good intel. I went to Seneca this year for the first time to participate in the tournament and we caught Landlocks, Rainbows, and Lake Trout in decent numbers. We had the 7th or 8th largest in the tournament, and we won the LOU big fish Friday. I had no problem finding fish in the lake and getting them to bite. Is the lake still recovering from its issues, yes but it is far from dead. If you can't find and catch fish look in the mirror and figure out what you are doing wrong, its you not the lake. The same colors, presentation, speeds and strategy I use on Cayuga works there too.....there are less fish...but they are indeed there. Be respectful on here and you just might learn a thing or two....Most of the guys on here are classy good fisherman, but a few bad apples ruin it for the rest and drive off people who don't want to deal with it......... my 10 cents (inflation) lol Mark
  14. Ive run rods with twilleys and roller tips...I vastly prefer the roller tips, comes in easier especially with fleas the roller tips grind right through them. I am a charter and use them a ton.....still have to watch your guides even with rods set up for wire it will gouge them and eventually cut your wire so get a dremel and flatten them if they start a groove.
  15. Early to bed early to rise fish all day and make up lies…. Less you got pictures and proof it never happened….
  16. Yes I even ran a second one down to verify because I was shocked. I have two probes and I have the little hand held
  17. We had a similar result lol I thought maybe since my boat was in Seneca it just brought the Seneca curse with it. My son and I were studying up can’t find any postings or references of water being that warm so very deep …our releases on the small fish died I’m sure 60 degree water didn’t help
  18. Besides getting blown out by 930 seeing the strangest temperature swings I’ve seen ever. Water tested by Ithaca yacht club in middle of lake … Myers…. T falls .. Atwater, just shy of sheldrake in middle and shallows ….Water down 80 feet running 60 degrees water down 90 feet 58 down 100 running 55 … could not find any water in 40’s anywhere in 20 miles of lake even down 120 feet … fish very difficult to find last week had thermocline at 30 foot with water below 30 around 47 water in same spots last week down 80 was 43 …..I know it’s the massive continuous wind but wth ???? I’ve never seen such warming of the water like this …
  19. Actually it does help I’m tracking the source of a problem and I want to be fair and accurate about it… that’s why I’m asking
  20. If anyone purchased fuel from Sampson Marina during or around the tournament and is having engine issues please reach out to me ….. never mind problem solved not fuel related ..
  21. Great report and article we fished it hard our first time ever on the lake we topped at 8.5 pounds we landed about 20 fish we lost 9 hours of fishing time Saturday due to a mechanical issue. We caught Salmon 4 pounds Rainbow 3 pounds and a 6 3/4 and 8.5 lb laker to round out our top end of weights… we brought up a lamp Rey and we saw a lot of scars on salmon and lakers. I was just thrilled we landed as many as we did being our first time with very uncooperative weather we arrived Wednesday planning to sonar the lake on Thursday but got blown back lost that day. Congratulations to the winner my hats off to you…
  22. We are in … coming to Seneca for the first time for the tournament!!!
