  1. Went out Saturday and there was about 3" of mixed on top and 5-6" of solid ice under that. I did hear that someone went though out there today though (https://13wham.com/news/local/two-ice-fisherman-rescued-after-falling-through-ice) Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Thanks all for the feedback! I'm thinking I'll give it another try sometime but will be depend on the weather and all. It's funny, while I was out there jigging and marking fish I was thinking to myself I wish I had some live bait.
  3. Not really and I tried to keep the jig in view of the finder Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Made it out but no luck for me today. Seemed to be fish around I just couldn't convince them to put a hole in their lip. Bunch of people fishing from shore on this nice day and saw one boat get what looked like a brown. All in all a good day for February in my book Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Awesome, thanks for the advice! Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks, I do have a fish finder so maybe I'll see if I can find them. Would the same summer techniques work? Only tried it once but used a decent sized jig with a white swim bait
  7. The weather doesn't look to bad Saturday and am thinking about putting on the dry suit and heading out in my kayak. Never hit up Cayuga in the winter and am not dead set on catching any particular fish, just looking to catch something. Should I throw some sticks for trout? Are pike better in the northern shallows? Just try for some perch? If it gets hairy weather wise I might just try from shore cause staying safe is my top priority. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated cause I'm getting some cabin fever and looking to get out of the house. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I long for the day where I get bored with smallies or muskies Nice fish and impressive feat landing them like that!
  9. I just started trolling this year so not sure how valuable my input is, but I agree with the others and put a kicker on. If space is tight then you might need a kicker mounting bracket or something to put it on if there isn't room on your transom. I have a 16' aluminum StarCraft that weighs maybe 1000 lbs and it has a 45lb thrust trolling motor on it (Minn Kota edge). It will move my boat at about 3mph in calm conditions, but not sure I would use that for trolling. Works good for bass and such, but battery, speed control and steering would be my concerns. Although depending on your trolling motor and chargers on board those all might be negligible. I opted for a kicker cause I liked the idea of a backup if needed and I tied the steering to my main motor. Ended up finding a little 4hp four stroke on Craigslist that works great, but I had space on my transom for it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Had some old plastic gunnel mounts on my 16' aluminum boat that broke so I swapped them out with some new metal ones. When I installed the new ones I just used the same sheet metal screw that secured the old one in place. Currently I just use them to hold a PVC rod holder I made (I know I should upgrade) but should these be riveted in? I can't access the under side to bolt them down so a bit limited there. If I end up putting riggers w/gunnel mount on these do you think it would hold or would additional mounting be needed? Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I was just out there Saturday (10/19) and yes the dock was still at the launch

    I went out yesterday morning on the North side and only got one little one. Only my second time trying for eyes so I know my tactics and techniques still need work. I was fishing the bottom but I talked to a guy afterwards who said they were mostly suspended at about 20ft over the deeper parts of the lake (40+ fow) Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll be making some longer leaders this week!
  14. Good to hear Cody! I tried Cayuga out of long point yesterday morning and wasn't nearly as lucky. Only had 3 dipsys out and got a lot of grass on them but that was it in about 3 hours. Saw lots of action on the finder, so tried some jigging around Aurora in 80-90' FOW with no luck either. Does dipsy color matter? New to trolling and only have a couple of colors (white, clear and a purple fire), so i'm sure i'm messing up with other trolling points/techniques but was just curious. I stopped into bass pro on the way home and got more gear because I needed some therapy shopping after getting skunked
  15. Thanks all for the responses and tips! I feel like i'll have a better plan of attack next time i am out there. Whether i'll be able to execute and produce anything is a whole different story
