  1. Thanks for the info guys. I've got some PM's from some other members as well with alot of good tips. I feel that I have enough information now that I probably won't do a charter. I have a 4 year old daughter and a son that will be almost two that I am looking forward to taking out for some trips this year. Should be alot of fun.

  2. I am taking a family trip to Owasco Lake July 7th-14th and am taking the boat along. I was wondering if there are any good charters in that area that would mind doing a half day charter so I could pick up on what is working on that lake knowing I would be fishing my own boat the rest of the week. I would be focusing on lakers, browns and rainbows. We are staying toward the North end on Peterson point so I would like to focus on the North end of the lake as long as the fishing is good up there. Any advice on a charter, good spots and lures would be appreciated. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I recently bought a used boat which has an Eagle Accunav II autopilot. When I turn the unit on all appears fine but the COG bounces all around and never settles down and I'm not talking a few degrees it will jump 90+ degrees at times every few seconds. I ran a gps module self test and it said the module has passed. Any ideas of what the problem is or ways to diagnose my problem would be appreciated.

  4. Thanks for the info guys. I actually had my river jet boat out to Allan at snake Creek a couple years ago. I had heard he shutdown after being flooded out last year. I am glad to hear he is still up and running. I will give him a call. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Hey guys I need a bit of advice on a good boat mechanic. I just bought an 89 bayliner trophy 24' and am too busy with work right now to work on it to get ready for summer fishing with the family. I live in Northeast Pennsylvania so I know I am going to need to travel. Just looking for some advice. If it helps what I really want done for now is tune up the main motor and kicker, add a planer arch and move the downrigger mounts. If you guys have some recommendations in the southern tier of New York that would be great since it would be closer to me. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. How is the late afternoon bite? I was thinking of running out after dinner and give it another go. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. Finally got out on the lake this morning. The family vacation plan isn't leaving as much fishing time as I would like. I only got out for about 2 hours this morning. I started off Canoga point by the silos and worked south from 80 feet to 130 feet. Fished dipsys on wire out about 150'. UV peanut fly behind spin n glow worked for me couldn't get anything going on spoons for some reason. Landed a 26" Laker and a 25" land lock. For my first time out I felt it was a good start.

  9. I am actually there from July 7-14, but hopefully everything shared here will be a help to you as well. I have a good deal of experience with Lakers and salmon up on Ontario, but have never tried it on the finger lakes before. From what I get of it the gear isn't all that different, but knowing where the fish are at or are at least typically at is the biggest challenge in my mind. Everybody here has been very helpful and I continue to watch the reports that some of the guys put up on here frequently in which they share general information about depths and locations that are helpful.

  10. On a nice day with calm weather predicted I wouldn't have any problem with that run at all. You are right I'd much rather ride in the boat than the truck. Weather forecast will certainly play a key role in what I do. I know I am looking forward to getting up there and putting everybodys advice to use.

  11. Thanks for the help guys. It's a heck of a nice community on this board and nice to know guys are willing to help another guy with some solid advice. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Thanks Zebedee, it's always nice to have shoreline reference points it just makes everything a little easier. We are headed up in early July, if we get into the fish I will be sure to report back on here how we did. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. You make great points. I am running an 18' boat so rough water can be a real challenge. I will probably do some bass and perch fishing in the north end, but I will take your advice and on the day's I want to go out deep I'll load it up on the trailer and head south. Luckily we are right next to the Cayuga lake state Park so getting the boat on the trailer is quick and easy. Thanks again. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Thanks for the info sk8man. I was planning to dock the boat at the house but trailering may be a good idea at that distance. I do see the depths you are talking about outside of Canoga which wouldn't be a bad run with the boat. The shelf isn't as steep there and is more gradual but gets steeper as your run south. Is that a good starting point by Canoga and then work south? Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I am vacationing on Cayuga lake this year with my family and will have the opportunity to get some fishing in. The only problem I see is that we are staying at the north end of the lake by Seneca Falls and I want to fish for salmon and lakers. Looking at my charts I see if I go down by Aurora across the lake there are depths from 100-300' deep. Is that far enough down the lake to get into the salmon and lakers? I will be fishing dipsys on wire rods mainly. Also any help would be appreciated as to whether the west or east side would be a better starting spot.
