  1. Didn’t target them much. We did get two small ones, one at 70’ down. I wanted to put fish in boat for these guys and once we got into Lakers, kept at it.
  2. Tried to launch at Taughannock, dock a foot underwater, ran to Deans and dock inches underwater. Launched, and ran to east side, marked fish throughout water column but no takers, Trolled for couple hours. Ran back to west side and found marks, set up and got into Lakers on both riggers and wire dipsy diver, SD fly. Green, white, black spoons was what worked. Had one double with old college brothers. Good time had by all.
  3. Went out of Deans 7/30. Wind and waves were up. Caught a couple of rainbows and lakers, all on riggers. Fleas were not an issue at all. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. We will try, she wants to go this Saturday!! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  5. Went out of Deans point late morning, got one right away and then not much. Wife was saying it’s too cold, too windy, too... then she reels in a 32”, 10.5# laker. Made the weekend. Fish were suspended on west side, 40-60 feet down. Caught on downrigger with bare spoon. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  6. Land Locked, did you boat any fish? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Stopped by on way north. Level is LOW probably 1-2 fow max at end of rebuilt dock. I’ve only launched there a couple of times, if it’s a flat bottom out to sea wall may be tough to get a boat out
  8. BS. there are not slot limits now, just minimum size, but can’t keep cod. So any that get brought up have to be thrown back and a lot don’t make it. The 12 hour trip is Thursday only. We figure why not. Going to drive out there, let’s fish! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Thanks. That’s who we are using, yankee fleet. I’ve been going out with them on occasion for 30 Ish years, they seem as good as anyone I’ve gone out with. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I’m looking for any advice about best time to go deep sea fishing on a limited load party boat 12 hr trip. We can go from early July thru august, anyone have any suggestions on better times to go? Any haddock migration, breeding, etc that we should consider vs picking a semi-random date? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. For non starting batteries, running motor guide 36v and two Scotty downriggers I’m looking at upgrading to VMAXTANK batteries that claim around 240 reserve charge, which is about 80% longer than my current bank and by far the highest RC i have found. Does anyone have experience with this brand?
  12. Thanks again everyone. Yes, I have gotten decent at the riggers so want to branch out a bit. Still not sure if I’m going to do braid or wire for the dipsys. May start with braid for simplicity, or not
  13. Interesting, thanks. 4 rods was more than enough first year so I’m going to try dypseys this spring.
  14. I’ve spent 2020 getting back into trolling the finger lakes with my wife. Had mostly fun, caught some lakers but never really slammed anything. Trolling with downrigger s on Seneca -0, keuka 12, Cayuga 1. All lakers off of downriggers with spoons. I’m going to buy a fishhawk this winter which I think will help a bit and likely launch at Deans. My question is why are dipseys different than downriggers? Is it the fact that the lure is way behind the boat so less noise above or something else? I’m also thinking of going 80# braid vs wire based on other comments, any strong reason not to? Any other advice to offer? Thanks
