    Cayuga cayuga lake

    cayuga lake Any body get to the lake today ? thinking about launching out of Taughannock park tomorrow. Need to know on lake conditions. THANK YOU !!!!
  2. Cayuga South End 4/21 South end of Cayuga was loaded with debris this morning, grass, leaves, and branches. There are also some pretty good size logs floating around. Did not even think of deploying the boards, lines on the downriggers kept popping due to the debris. The ramps at Treman were clogged with debris as well.
  3. just a shout out to an LOU member that is a straight shooter. I recently posted a WTB for a small insignificant elec trolling motor.. No bow mount/foot control, just a cheap little thing for a little Jon boat.. I dunno, I wanted to spend maybe 50-75 bucks or so .. Forum member HOP [real name is Gary] PM'd me and told me he had one laying around, and if I didn't mind the drive up to OVID I would be welcome to have it-free. I thanked him for his kindness and generousity, and went up and picked it up, and was shocked.. Its a gorgeous old Evinrude, in simply spectacular condition, very well built, and very unusual in form, never saw one like it, and they simply don't build them like this anymore. Gary could certainly have sold this for a decent buck, but instead chose to give it to someone he only met once for about 2 minutes. My only "payment" is he wants me to show him how I jig for lakers,, Pretty brutal price to pay , right?.. My techniques should increase his catch by a FULL 2 or 3 fish a YEAR! lol.. Also a shout out to ontherise ]Joe]another member that sold me a very nice 2007 Tracker/Fisher Jon boat in VERY nice shape for $200... Most I had seen before buying his were a LOT older, in a lot worse shape, for a lot more money. I got a really really nice deal on a nice little boat. I appreciate guys like this, and when I see a member here that has a need or simply a want, I will certainly do the same as I was done... Over the years, I have bought/sold/traded stuff here, and never had a bad deal, always positive.... thanks again!... bob

    Cayuga Cayuga 4/15

    Cayuga 4/15 Had an awesome time on Cayuga this morning we caught twelve Lakers all but Three were over 7 LBS the biggest was 31 inches 11.5 LBS the most amazing thing is we had 6 rods in and 9 of the 12 fish were caught on the same rod with a Spinny and a Iron Duke Fly. Another interesting thing was one of the Lakers was covered with a red blood and rash like skin, this fish looked like it went through a war even had one of his front fins missing. Not sure if the skin defect was caused by Lampreys but sure did not seem to be, will post pics of biggest fish and injured one. Also all fish caught today were released to fight another day.

    Cayuga Cayuga 4/9/2017

    Cayuga 4/9/2017 First trip with some new guys first time on the boat. Ended up with 6 lakers, 3 8lbers. 600' copper, purple dream weaver down 90' and wire rod with the Iron Duke " Quality Time" fly that was made in memory of my Son Ben did most of the damage. This rig took the biggest fish of the day although we dropped a bigger fish that was caught on copper at the back of the boat. Ran into Stinger and we were able to chat at the launch. Tight lines! Wes
  6. Cayuga conditions? I'm thinking on trolling tomorrow on Cayuga. With the recent rains, I was wondering if anyone has a lake condition report? Is the lake unfishable due to mud ect? Thanks
  7. Lake Level - Taughannock Falls State Park - 4/9/17 My buddy took this picture yesterday at Taughannock Falls State Park.. Lake is very high and the docks are underwater. -Pete
  8. Cayuga flood stage...no motor boat rumor I don't know if it's true or not, and I heard it word of mouth, that because cayuga lake is at flood stage there are no motor boats or wakes allowed. I was planning on trolling this Sunday. I can't find any news articles stating this ban. For all I know it is just a bunch of bull. Anyway, does anyone know if this is true or not?
  9. Meyers Launch Cayuga? Looking to see if Meyers Launch is ice free to launch this weekend? Thank you
  10. Treman State Park Boat Launch Has anyone launched at Treman this spring yet? Wondering if the water level is high enough to get a 16 foot deep V in. Also any advice on how to get into some lake trout/brown trout/salmon in early April would be appreciated. Planning on putting the boat in this Sunday, and haven't had too much luck in past years. Thanks!
  11. Cayuga 2/28/17 Launched out of Treman this morning with my Fishmaster 196. No problems with the lake being a little low. Once I got away from the docks the water never got less than 4.5 feet all the way out to the lake. set up and trolled the east side to Myers pt. , turned around and trolled back. Picked up 10 small (9-11 inch) LL, 3 nice LL (20+ inches) and 1 Laker (in 8 feet of water!). Wind picked up at 1:00 and we headed in.
  12. Cayuga Treman Launch Took a ride up rt 89 yesterday. Stopped at Treman launch. My guess would be the lake was down 3 to 4 ft. I would not try to launch my 21ft boat there. There was good color on the south end seemed to break about at the dropoff. Rode up to Deans Cove there was a couple trailers in the parking lot. Its been awhile since I launched out of Deans.So I dont recall how deep the channel is. I would not try to launch my 21ftr. there either. This is just a launch depth report from someone who has tore up props and knocked transducers off the back of the boat in past years. Use your own judgement.This break in the weather has me itchin.
  13. Grand Slam in January! Hit Taughannock this morning at 8am and I was suprised to see more than a few boats out. The lake was as calm as Trump firing Obama. The salmon were out over deep water with scattered bait up high which suprised me for this time of year. Lots of bait was deep and I was marking fish down 110 to 250. The first part of the morning I slowed way down (for me) 1.5 to 1.9. I started out 1 for 6 and couldn't seem to get a fish to stick but the slow speed seemed to be what they wanted. Rigger parked at 55 and 3 color lead core were the salmon takers. Got a few new warrior UV extreme flutter spoons and they were hot. Ran a rigger down 140 to 175 trying to pick a laker or two, their bite was slow but thankfully the big paddle and ironduke uv wild child trolling fly was the ticket for a few lakers. Picked up a buddy at 10 and we fished south. Picked up a small bow and a keeper brown. Overall ended the day with two keeper salmon, two lakers and a brown. I do love Cayuga. Can't beat it for a winter break! The launch is super low and going out into the lake stay as far south as possible. Good luck if ya'll get out!
  14. I was hoping to get some insights on where to go at this time of the year and what to try as a setup. I have ff that we try in October . Was great north of boy-scout camp. I was told trouera are returning to the south end and shalllower water. Any advice would be great. Thanks alll Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Cayuga 9/5.

    Fished today from 0830 to 1630 and had 2 fish to show for it. Fished. All water depths and used all colors and just could not get anything to work for us. Most bait was marked in 60 to 80 foot of water but marked very few fish with the bait. Alot of boat traffic today Wich was expected maybe had something to do with the dismal results. Had a hand full of short strikes but like said before only got 2 in the boat. Hey a tough day on the lake is better than a easy day at work. Best baits to day were black and white spoons with purple tape. Good luck out there. Boat ran rough this morning but smoothed out later in the day.

    Cayuga Grand Slam

    Hit Deans this morning with my boys and caught 6, 1 laker, 1 brown, 1 rainbow, and 3 landlocked. However, all of the fish were small. Biggest were 2 landlocks, probably 3 pounders. Are most of the fish small, or are there larger ones out there as well?
  19. Heading to Cayuga tomorrow heading out of Myers. Havent been in about a week just curious if anything has changed. Thanks in advance for any info. Will report results tomorrow. Thanks in advance for any info.

All landlocks except one small rainbow . 3-4 lbs biggest , nbk stingers and blue dolphin spin doc ,atomik tournament fly took two biggest fish being the biggest Off the water by 1030. 2.8 to 3.1 gps speed. Beautiful morning after the fog lifted. Had a good time and lots of laughs. All went back except two for the grill. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Fished out of Myers again today. Took 3 of my 5 kids with me on the boat. Ages ranging from 9 to 14. Anyway got on the water about 0730 and set up south of T falls on a North troll. Fished the 60 to 70 foot range with both riggers and divers. Ended the day going 5 for 11 ×iChat isn't to bad for the kids. Best colors were green glow spoons and flies. Fished from Myers to a little south of kidders then crossed over and came back to the launch. Best screens and most active fish were in the 60 to 70 range over 80 to 100 ft of water. Had a good day and was glad to spend it with the kids. Kept some fish for the grill today. Good luck out there. Be safe.
  22. I'm headed over to Cayuga for the first time this weekend any tips would be great. You guys seem to be having great luck over there and I don't want to be missing out. I plan to launch from Deans and troll around there. How have the fleas and weeds been? Thanks in advance for the help.
  23. I am trying something different this year and trying to learn trolling. I've been out two or three times on Cayuga lake but no luck. So far I'm running two rods and two downriggers. Usually launch out of myers and troll north towards AES. One rigger set around 60 to 70 feet and the other set to 80 to 90 feet over 140 ft of water. Ive used dodgers as well as a set of cowbells. Mainly used spoons of all colors. Trolling around 2 MpH. I'm just wondering if I'm missing something, or just keep pressing on with this setup. Any advice is appreciated

    Cayuga Cayuga 8/27

    Launched at T- falls because of time constraints. Took my son and his wife out for her first trolling experience. Looked for browns early only found a few 15-18" guys, not sure where the bigger browns went. Headed out to deep water and found some really nice Lakers on paddle n fly down 90-110' Gave Bob Barker (flt spoon) a try on deep rigger he produced a nice 7lber. The big fish of the short morning came on the mag dipsy, just under ten lbs. Iron Duke uv extravaganza was the big boy producer!
  25. Launched from Myers around 6:30am and quickly realized that the battery used to start the main motor was dead. I ended up jumping it off of one of the trolling motor batteries with some cables I borrowed from a nice guy at Myers launch and headed to the power plant. We had great screens of bait (maybe too much) - pics below. Not sure what to do when the screen is full of bait/fish but none of them are on the bottom or biting. The answer may be trolling and we did throw a dispy out for a bit around 50FOW, no luck there after making 3 passes through the below screens. I even hooked up the old black and white FF to the transducer on the trolling motor to confirm my main FF wasn't acting up again. Around 9:00am or so we headed for the west side (using the trolling motor as the battery was still too dead to start the main) with the hope the fish were biting over there. First fish came around 10:00am and by 12:00PM the pleasure boaters were out in force and chewing up the lake pretty bad. I hooked up with a brown around 2:00PM and we continued jigging till 4ish when we packed up. We ended up with a total of 5 fish in the boat, 4 lakers and the brown (biggest laker pic below). Lakers were all clean (no recent lamprey wounds) and all were released unharmed. The brown is largest brown I have caught out of Cayuga, ended up weighing in at 8.8lbs on the digital scale. Was happy to catch a brown Jigging, my buddy hooked up with a salmon as well after that but one jump and it was gone. I discovered during the day that the main motor battery was not charging while the motor was running but had enough juice to keep it running after it was going. After we were done and ready to head back to Myers I tried jumping the motor again off the trolling motor battery (borrowing cables from a nice guy at Taughannock) but having used the electric all day, it also did not have enough juice to start the motor. Ended up having to take one of the trolling motor batteries out and start the motor with it directly to get back to Myers. I showed my two year old the brown when I got home, I'm happy she was willing to pet it despite my wife's strong objection . Hopefully she'll want to come out with me and catch one herself in the coming years. Hard day of fishing for the ratio of hours to fish in the boat and it was not a calm day at any point really. Was happy all the fish we landed were good sized though. Waves were rough and wind was gusting pretty hard from the south as soon as we got out there. Good day overall even with battery/motor problems. No idea why the FF pics turn sideways when I upload them, I have tried everything to get them straight but the site keeps turning them. PS. If any of the people I borrowed cables from happen to read this, PM me and I'd be happy to take you out sometime. -Pete
