  1. Salvation army Derby FDpamplet2017.pdf I hope this works. Just trying to create a little buzz for this derby.I fished this derby last few years. Yes, they do send you a 1099. I am going to go to Ithaca today to try and sign up . They do not publicize this derby very well I will try to figure out locations to sign up. I will be going fishing somewhere that weekend it might as well be Cayuga.Ive got some local made trinkets (lures) to try out. You never know when you might get a big one. I will have my Navy son with me that I haven't seen in a couple years. It will be nice to have a young reel er in er. I will tucker him out in the skinny water reeling in. Then let him rest over deep water looking for a big one....
  2. CAYUGA FLEAS Any sign of fleas on Cayuga yet? Thanks.
  3. Cayuga sun morning Fished Cayuga today north & south of Taughannock, 6am - 10:30am. Picked up 5 lakers and 2 salmon. Most were in the 17"-21" range, but finished up with my personal best laker, 30 inch, 13 lb. Successfully released. So great to be out there. Looks like the water temp is gonna rise pretty quick the next few days.
  4. 250 years worth of outdoormen on Cayuga Take a kid fishing! No cell phones in hand on this trip! Age of crew,93,80,58,and 13. We had a steady pick all morning. I had a hard time getting enough time to eat a sandwich. We boated about 15 lakers many in the 6 to 8lb range. everybody landed fish but most were reeled in by 13 year old Jake. He did a great job and we were teaching him rod control and by the end of the day he was guiding the lakers between all the lines like a pro. We fished 90' to 195' FOW . Most fish were 90'to120' down. only 2 fish on 500' copper. Ben's memorial fly " Quality Time" caught the most and biggest fish. You can get this fly from Iron Duke Trolling Fly's and I always have this fly down in memory of my boy, Iron Duke has many other colors that are as good or better. This fly has purple in it and my spoon and paddles on wire were purple as well. Spread the joy of fishing
  5. Species confirmation I caught this beautiful 10.5 pound fish last summer in Cayuga Lake. I'm pretty sure it's a brown trout, but I've never seen one so golden looking. Just wanted to confirm with you guys because I've been curious for a long time now. Anybody? Is it a brown trout? Managed to land an 8.5 pounder 2 days after also, which I'm positive was a brown, with slightly darker color. Thanks in advance!

    Cayuga Cayuga 5/11

    Cayuga 5/11 Mix of 1 laker, 3 browns, 3 salmon. Boards were 150 back with spoons and sticks. Riggers were down 15 feet down 150 back. From 8 am-1 pm
  7. taughannock launch Could someone tell me if it's possible to launch from taughannock state park now? Thank you
  8. 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 !!!!
  9. Cayuga 4/21 Put in at Myers and headed south until it got too muddy then back up West side. Despite the loads of debris and rain storm we had a pretty good day. Boated 5 LLs and 2 browns as well as two large pike which was a surprise.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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!

  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. Meyers Launch Cayuga? Looking to see if Meyers Launch is ice free to launch this weekend? Thank you
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. Fished out of Taughannock about 8:00 am (only boat) tried south with one small Laker. Ended up finding some active fish North of boy scout camp, ended day with nine small Lakers one under sized bow and two salmon that just didn't make 18" hot lure was paddle with Iron duke uv extravaganza and purple alpha alewife They called for wind but it turned out calm, lucky I didn't have my wife with me, sorry babe !!
  23. 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
  24. Gonna head to cayuga tomorrow any tips from you pros. Appreciate it in advance if your willing to share some secrets. Love to get into any salmon Trout or whatever really. Just fishing Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  25. 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.
