  1. Launched at Myers around 5AM and headed north to the power plant. A few pics below. Lake was perfectly calm today and the fishing was great. 11 Fish landed by 10:00AM when we packed up and went to work. Fish were shallower than on the weekend. Best fishing was between 40-60 FOW. I don't normally look that shallow but the screen was blank anywhere above 60 FOW. Biggest fish was 28" and came in 45 FOW. I am happy to report I have seen no lampreys at all on Lakers this year, I have even seen Lakers with no lamprey wounds at all. Whatever has occurred that caused them to be gone, it is working from what I see. I also got the FF dialed in a bit more and figured out what was causing all that noise. Very happy with the way it performed today. All fish released successfully. Screen seems almost impossible to keep clean with fish spraying slime everywhere when we land em but Ill get a cloth for it at some point.
  2. My twin nephews are in town from down south so we took a quick evening troll to see if we could find some fun. Launched out of Dean's and trolled with the waves zigging in and out of the 80' shelf running 3 riggers and 2 short cores. Both nephews and my 4 year old each reeled in their first laker and were all kinds of excited as they each reeled in their "monster fish". I think I have a good supply of fishing buddies in my future! Also included a pic of another crew in case they're here.
  3. Can anyone recommend a tackle shop for some equipment (spoon, flies, spin and glo's) and advice for my trip up to Cayuga next week. I am staying on the lake just south of Aurora. Thanks in advance.

    Cayuga Cayuga 6/24

    Solo trip from Dean's Cove on a calm and peaceful lake this morning. Went North near the silos and back for a three hour trip. Marked the most fish a little deeper than the past couple weeks. 120-150 fow showed fish from 30 feet on down. Couldn't convince anything but a short salmon above 60 feet off the down riggers. The copper carrying a flasher/fly was the workhorse this morning, as it consistently fired, mostly with lake trout but also a couple 20 inch landlocks. I definitely had "the look" of NymphO's son a few times, especially after spending about 10 minutes working in a stout laker! Left that one and a few others in the water but kept 1 of the salmon and a small Laker for a nice grilled dinner tonight. Sorry no pics..... I don't do selfies. 😉
  5. Ok so I've been asked by numerous people if this event was going to run again this year and I now have the answer! The date is set for August 11th 2018 with the weigh in at south Seneca sportsmans club. I will post more details as I get them but mark it on the calender if you want to fish a great event. Last year's turn out was great and we'd love to see this year be even better! Those of you who fished the LOU All last the weigh in is at the same place and I'd love to see a bunch of LOU members at this event aswell!
  6. Got out with guide John Gaulke (fingerlakesanglinzone) on North end. I got 16 Lakers from 7am to 11am. All but one of the fish ranged from 26 to 29 inches. Lost another 4 or 5. All hefty fish with only a few healed lamprey marks. Fish were super active taking numerous dives and even caught a couple drifting that wanted to run and dive. I just got my 'new to me ' boat set up with ulterra , rods and fishfinder and hadn't fished much over the past couple years. Just making sure i had all the right stuff and John gave me pointers on my Lowrance because he had the same one. Mostly all white's , but got a couple on greens. I get out with John once in a while because as a guide he gives me shore landmarks and I've never fished the north end. Definitely a day to remember !!!!!!! If you're jigging check out cayugafisher.net all the info is there too.

    Cayuga Spoon length

    Are super slim spoons too large for Cayuga? Of so what would be a proper size ?

    Cayuga Cayuga 6-15

    Surface temperatures are increasing and the bait and big fish moving deeper. We targeted rainbows and found 52 degree water down 50 over 120 on the West side half way between Deans cove and Sheldrake. Ran stacked riggers 40 and 60, Slide divers at 50. Took a couple of nice ones on the divers and some Lakers off the riggers. The 6lb bow liked a rainbow Needlefish and the 7 lb one ate a greasy chicken wing scorpion.
  9. https://give.salvationarmy.org/event/ithaca-fishing-derby-2018/e173384 July 14 th and 15th Time for all those big lakers I been hearing about to show up. I hope the link works to the derby ,you can register online.

    Cayuga Pickin cotton 6-8 and 6-9

    The cotton was too heavy to troll my favorite runs. Found some clean water just south of Long Point and stayed on it all Friday and Sat morning. Shallow program again in 35 to 45 fow with surface temps 55 and 54 each morning. Boated a mixed bag of lakers, salmon, browns and bows. 33 on Friday, 21 Sat. Hottest lure was a silver streak green alewife on the slide divers and riggers, but largest fish were taken on the inline boards running J-7 jointed black and silver rapalas. Best fish an 11-4 brown we couldn't release, but put the 10 pounder back in the pond.

    Cayuga Cayuga tommorow

    Looking for help for tomorrow. Be my first time. All help appreciated!

    Cayuga Cayuga 6-2 Long Point

    Strong, NNW winds in the morning gave us second thoughts, but we gave it a go. Still running a shallow program in 20 to 25 fow. Because of the wind we found surface temperatures fluctuating from 48 to 56. 23 fish boated throughout the day. Mostly lakers, a couple good ones, 4 short salmon and took a nice bow off the inline board with a J-7 jointed brown trout in the evening as the lake laid down. 8lbs 8ozs.
  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.

    Cayuga Cayuga afternoon bite

    Is there an afternoon or evening bite? Coming on a Sunday in the next 2 weeks or is it a waste of time? Figure I'll get there at noon and fish until about dark. Thanks!
  17. Took my son (right) and his friend Adam (left) fishing on Friday hoping to get Adam into a large fish as he's only been out fishing once in his lifetime. Launched out of Deans. What started out promising with a number of marks on the fishfinder, though the fish seemed to be very deep, couldn't get anything to hit. Set up 5 rods- 2 riggers, 2 dipsy divers, and one planner board with mix of spoons and flasher/flies set from surface down to about 80ft. Fished in 200-250 foot range mostly and couldn't get a rod to move. With time running out, snacks running low, and it being very HOT with little wind, the kids still did not complain though I know it was getting to them. I decided to go towards shallower water and set one of the riggers down to 135 foot. Just when we decided to call it a day (hard for me because I've never been skunked on Cayuga) that rigger released. Gave the rod to Adam who started cranking on the reel but that laker didn't want to move. Finally got him to the surface and my son Ryan did a great job of netting the fish (he has more fun netting the fish then catching them). Anyway, it was a great way to end the day and these two kids never complained despite the heat and no electronics! Hats off to them! The fish hit a blue aqua spin doctor and fly. And a great thank you to a very nice gentleman at the launch(think his name was Tom) for taking that picture and sending it to us.
  18. Fairly new to lake trout fishing as I live in NYC. However, I'm planning to do some laker jigging this coming Memorial Day weekend on Cayuga lake, and was hoping for some guidance on the laker fishing this time of year. I fish from a kayak, so my range is limited to a mile or two from where I launch. I was planning to fish out of Dean's cove due to proximity to where I'm staying, and wanted to know if good laker fishing can be found in that area, or if I should focus more south like Taughannock. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  19. Well it’s been a rough three days here at the lake, We did three small salmon the first day , three the 2nd day, yesterday did not have a hit with eight hours on the lake, trolled East side from Myers to town , trolled west side to taughannock Park . Went to Milken station trolled south to Myers yesterday. Is there something I’m missing here? Last year caught fish everyday, We were flatlining with boards close, dipsey divers , downrigging, used spoons , rapalas, FF , I’m far from being a expert at this trolling but this was frustrating trying to figure this out ... But I can say one thing it’s better than work .... any advise would be appreciated?? I’m here till Friday and I will make the best of it .. Good Luck All !!!

    Cayuga Cayuga cinco de mayo

    Cayuga lake trout were partying and hungry on cinco de Mayo and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Had an epic day, 19 lakers landed & 1 salmon. It's like going to the gym and getting a heck of a workout, strong fish. Largest fish of the day, a 29.75" 9.9 pound moose. All released except one to eat. Fish came mostly from the east shore, anywhere from a couple of miles south of Myers all the way up to the power plant. They were active and hungry. Good luck to all out there today!
  21. Ok- this is going to be a little bit of a rant. I had an incident while out shore fishing today. Had a slip bobber rig out. There was a nice drift and the wind at my back, so my bobber was a good ways out. Farther than I can cast personally, but not out of a good cast range. So there I am enjoying myself, when some idjit comes speeding by super close to shore, runs over my line, and BOOM- no more rig for me. I know they were aware that they ran it over because they kept looking back at me as the booked it to the marina. My first impulse was to run to my truck, catch them pulling their boat out at the marina and deliver a super cuss out. But then I reminded myself that Karma is a bigger b**ch than I'll ever be. Anyways- this is not the first time that something like this has either happened to me, or I've witnessed it. If you're in a boat, move out of shore casting range. You have the entire lake for crying out loud! Its not like anyone can steer the fricking dock! Ive done my share of boat fishing too- and I know that sometimes the best fishing is heading toward shore. However, I can share the fun and either go slow enough to be sure Im not messing up the mood of those fishing from shore, or heading out to the spots they cant access from there. The people trolling or pulling those planer boad thingies so they're passing only about 50 feet from you are the worst. I've been tempted several times to buy some of that steel line used in deep sea fishing, throwing a super heavy weight on it, and casting it out so its right next to whatever fishing setup I have. Go on and run that over- see how it turns ourt. But again- what I said about Karma...

    Cayuga Cayuga 5/1

    Another good day on Cayuga! Couldn't get the browns or silvers to play but the lakers did!
  23. Attached is the entry form for Barney and Bear's 32nd Annual Trout Derby, May 19th and 20th, 2018. You can sign up at Bear's Baits, located at Myers Park in Lansing New York. Attached is the entry form below. Also, Bear is working very hard to establish a second weigh-in station for future tournaments. This is proving to be more difficult then most people understand. He acknowledges the situation and is trying to work something out for future tournaments. Any question please contact Bear at 607-387-5576. Barney and Bear's 32nd Annual Trout Derby.pdf

    Cayuga Cayuga 4/21

    A quick afternoon shakedown, was beautiful on the water, good to be back. Fished 2pm to 530pm went 7 for 8 on the lakers. The little guy has become quite the rod hog!
  25. Launched at Taughannock at 9am. Good news,,, water level is much higher than the last time I was there (3/29/18). I would say 18"-24" higher. The ladder on the dock is in the water!. left inlet and shot straight across to East shore. Trolled north until we got to the power station. Is that power station still operating? Boards with sticks, riggers with spoons. No hits till we got to the power station, all spoons on riggers, all lakers, 80fow. Surface temp was 38 deg. Saw very few fish on screen. Was very happy to pick up half dozen lakers (8 passes in front of power station). Continued on North for 45 minutes, crossed over to west side, trolled back to Taughannock. All fish caught were in front of power station. Pulled out at 3pm. Great weather today.
