  1. Hi guys, I recently bought my first boat and am excited to get out this spring and start fishing for the trout and salmon of the fingerlakes. I am not really sure where to start though. I don't have much boat gear yet and don't really know what I should get to get started. I likely will still fish and drop live bait or do some jigging but I would also like to do some trolling. If anyone could help me out by recommending some lures and techniques that work well it would be much appreciated. I will mostly be fishing Canandaigua and Keuka so if you have any specific tips for these lakes that would be great. Thanks and tight lines
  2. I am in search of either a 12ft or 14ft aluminum row boat. I would prefer 14ft boat am willing to consider 12ft for the right price. The boat would need to come with a trailer. I would prefer the boat be registered and have the proper paperwork but for the right price I would buy without. Let me know what you have and what you want for it.
  3. 1. When the line is held vertically the weight cannot be below the hook. It must be above it. So drop shot is illegal. These rules only apply September 1 to March 31. So right now you can use a drop shot and have weight below the hook. 2. Sinking lures with treble hooks are not allowed. Again this is only September 1 to March 31. So right now you can use them. 3. Jig heads with a plastic lure are allowed all the time. They are free swinging when they are just tied on to the line or attached with a swivel. Hope this helps.
  4. Naples had a very good shocking with many fish. The biggest was almost 10 pounds. There ought to be a decent number of fish left in there for April 1st. Cold Brook was about the same as its been. The numbers have been dropping for years. They shocked more fish at Naples then Cold Brook. The fish in Naples were also bigger. Cold Brook still had quite a few fingerlings left from the stocking last fall.

  6. I am looking for a centerpin reel. Not looking spend a ton of money on it as it will be my backup reel. Let me know what you have.
  7. Has anyone heard if there are any browns running up the creeks yet?
  8. Is anyone catching any perch on Keuka Lake near shore or from shore. Where are you fishing and what are you using? Any help would be appreciated.
  9. Has anyone ever fly fished in the lakes. Not the tributaries. I want to target trout and salmon but not really sure how to do it. I assume baitfish streamer patterns would work. Maybe I could try dry fly patterns when the fish are eating off the surface. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Thank you to everyone for all the helpful information.
  11. Are the Perch running in the Oak yet? Has anyone been fishing for them. Would love to get some info if anyone has any.
  12. Has anyone ever fished Walleye from shore over on Conesus Lake. I want to catch Walleye and that is not very far away from where I live. I know the walleye come in pretty thick before the first Saturday in may when the season opens. Will there be any fish left by the then. Or will they all have moved out to deep to catch from the shore. Is night the best time to try for them? What is the best bait?
