  1. Started east side troll right out of Treman. Dipseys at 100' out , riggers at 30'- 35'. Couple short landlocks until we hit Myers. Then every pass in front of creek produced fish. Biggest was an acrobatic 22" Rainbow that probably went 6-7#. Sorry no pics was a quick release to fight another day. Purple / pink honeybee and purple / orange took most fish. Ended 16/25. Lost 3 different spoons due to break offs. Worked 60 -180 fow with 70-90 being best screen. Sent from my SCH-I435 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Launched out of Taughannock with two volunteers from a Christian group that had been volunteering at our camp for kids with special needs. Asked them north or south they chose south. The wind wasn't bad to start but ended up being a bit blustery! Trolled across to Myers and didn't touch a fish. Headed to the west side and popped two salmon just under legal size. The ten color with a purple alpha alewife took a really nice shot and Pastor Jay was up to reeling in a 6.5lb Brown in some serious waves. All in all a great morning for the conditions. I have no idea how deep we were cause my new fish finder is being shipped, Overtons had the Lowrance Elite5 HDI on sale so I grabbed one, hope I'm not disappointed. Picture doesn't do this fish much justice I thought it was only 4-5lbs but the scale said 6.5 we went back to the camp and ate it for lunch, yum! We were blessed to have this group of young and older men this week, thanks Pastor Jay, Ben and company!! Sent from my C771 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Hoping to find the bait shop at Myers open later tonight and not sure of their hours...thanks in advance - appreciated!
  4. Launched from long point a little before 7. Marked quite a few south of point in 30-50 fow. Didn't pick any up. Went north in front of college and covered from 80-140 fow with few marks. Moved into 60 fow on troll back to point and picked up a landlock and laker on a double. Landlock 30 down on rigger purple/silver. Laker 40 down on dipsy silver/white/yellow spoon.

  5. Barney has passed away, arrangements are incomplete at this time. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Fished the second half of the B&B Derby yesterday with Mrs. B. We launched out of Long Point around 9:00, and headed north. Had decent marks from 80-100 FOW, around Ellis point. While we were setting up, had a nice 28" 7.75 lbs take a Mt. Dew Spinny/Fly off the dipsy. From there, we picked away til 1:00 or so: 26" (NK28 Glow Green Frog, rigger), 24" (NK28 black/raspberry, rigger) and a 18" (NK28 silver/chart, dipsy). Had something take a rip on the 6 color core with a hot pink/orange Honeybee, but came unbuttoned. Heard rumors of lots of bait south, only marked one significant pod where we were. Congrats to this years winners! -Chris
  7. Started 6:45 right out of Treman with 2 inlines, 2 flats, 2 riggers. Went up east side north troll 15-30 fow . Picked up 2 short landlocks. Temp 51*-53*. Tried west side a little more productive but all shorts. Temp 53*-55*. All rigger bite 20-25 down, did not matter FOW. Even tried wire and lead with nothing. Ended 2 o'clock. 10/15 Sent from my SCH-I435 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Launched solo out of Treman early Sat am. Set up running bright sticks and a purple alpha alewife in 13'. The spoon fired twice off a shallow rigger before a stick even moved so I pulled the sticks and ran three FLT aa purples, that proved to be a good choice. Lots of small salmon with one that broke 19". Lost a really nice salmon and got a 4.5 lb Brown to the net. That was all before 8am. Pulled lines and headed to Laker land in front of salt plant, not even one pass and had three in the boat, while reeling in the last fish my rigger fired and had my fourth ( released to fight another day). Hot ticket was a iron duke fly not sure of the name with some green and yellow glow, and the gold n purple " dressed to kill" I've shortened my fly leads down to 22" and that seems to be the ticket. Then again maybe the bite is just picking up, lol. The Lakers were full of sculpin or gobies, hard to tell so digested. The meat is dark orange and very tasty! See you FLTA guys Sunday at Keuka...

  9. Might try Cayuga tomorrow for perch from a canoe. Anyone have any luck? Don't wanna post? Pm me details. Thanks a ton! Mike Sent from my XT1528 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Blue bomber took the first hit with 10 color lead. Lost the swivel and lure with 1 color to go....over 120'
  11. Caught mixed bag. One 10 to 15lbs carp. 29" Bowfin and half dozen eating size bullhead! Lots grass already.
  12. Made it down to the lake before work this morning. Fished from 6-730 - fooled one BT at sunrise with a silver/orange belly X-Rap. Also threw Kastmasters (chrome/blue, gold) and J-9 (gold) without any takers. Tight lines, Chris
  13. Planning on taking a trip down to Myers from the Auburn area this Thursday. Anyone know the conditions of the launch? Ice/shallow/etc. I have a Lund Deep V 17.5'.
  14. Headed North out Dean's. Setup over 100fow. Started off slow until about 1. Picked up one from there with 4 Lakers, a Rainbow, and a small salmon. Caught one of the Lakers on 3 colors out on a board... thought I had a big pike or maybe a big rainbow... boy was I surprised getting a laker in 25fow. Probably one of the last times out. Temperature going to drop sooner or later.
  15. Second time snagged a big goby today in 110 FOW off bottom jigging lakers. Got one last Friday too while waiting for wife to meet us at Myers, other mile up lake on east side.. Hope not a sign to come. Talked with DEC fisheries and they seem to think Gobies at peak of cycle so probably what we see now is all we will see. I know pros and cons with them, but interested to see impact in another 5 years. Still doing well jigging though anywhere from 60' to 130'.

  17. Fished Cayuga this weekend. Out of Meyers - headed north. Next day out of Long Point - headed south. Fished temp and above. Morning bite was light the first day and non-existent today. Sunday brought a fantastic bow out over the deep water. Over 5 pounder. Great fight with jumps. On a rigger with a small Stinger in purple. Released at boat. Today I fished just north of same deep water as Sunday. I ended up having to adjust my troll to avoid the weeds. Stayed over the deep water. It paid off with a great LL Salmon about the same size as the Bow from Sunday. It jumped once and came to the net tangled in the line. I netted it with the rubber net. Untangled it and put it back in the water with the net. She was really lively in the net so I dumped her out. She floated so I did a quick circle to see if I could get her revived. Got right to her and took my eyes off for a second and she was gone. I hope she makes it. That was a beautiful fish. That fish came on the same purple small stinger. Great to see some Salmon growing up and becoming such great fish. I have spent years clearing lines with the little ones that are so crazy aggressive. Sorry no pics..had to get these fish back in quick.
  18. Jigged Long Point, front of college. 100 to 105 FOW best. Hermits 1.25 oz painted white glow with lunker city alwife shaker best. 16 netted fish total, A number of shake offs and lots of nibbles. Son out did me as usual. 11 pound 32". Most in 25" to 27". Kept 3 for smoker, rest went back. Bit of a chop but no one else around other than pleasure boaters buzzing within 30 yards and waving!!!! Probably get worse next 2 days.
  19. Good day on Cayuga 30 fish in the boat on a 6 hour trip fish came on 300 400 coppers 180 and 210 on the wire 2.5 setting 50 50 70 on the riggers. I don't think color mattered much. We did run fast 2.5 to 2.7 at the ball down 70 in 47 degree water. Mostly Lakers and about 10 small land locks. My clients ended up with 13 good fish to take home with them.
  20. Went out with my wife yesterday afternoon. Started setting lines in 130 FOW north of Long Point. Took a shot on the dipsy before we got the whole spread out - big fish, shook the hook. Kept trolling south and stopped marking. Fished from 130-90 FOW with no screen. Pointed the boat back north, got back out to 130 when we decided to clear lines. Brought in the first stacked rigger, and there was a little rainbow shaker on there. Not sure how long he'd been on for, but he was still in good shape. As we tossed him back, the deep rigger started shaking - 3.5lb laker. Introduced him to his new vacation home, and kept clearing lines. As I was bringing in the starboard dipsy, something pounded it and headed straight for the surface. By now I was completely shut down by fleas, and I saw a big silver flash behind the boat, then he was gone. Before I could get that rig the rest of the way in, the port rigger starts pounding. Again, the fleas bogged us down, and the fish shook free. No hot lure - took shots on NK28 SSW, NK28 Glow w Green Spots, NK28 Watermelon, small Evil Eye Black/Purple Tape, reguar Evil Eye chart. w orange dots Tired of peeling snot of the line, we switched to jigging. I stung one in 110 FOW, then we headed in. 2/3 of my rigger rods were spooled with 10lb mono, and the other was with 30. The fleas were noticeably better on the 30 lb. My dipsy rods are spooled with 30 lb braid - shame on me for letting them soak as long as I did without checking them. Moral of the story, switch to your summer flea line, or check them every so often if you're fishing the northern reaches of Cayuga. Not sure how they are down south, should find out later this week.

  21. Recently I went fishing on Cayuga with my Dad. We had a good day fishing, but on the way in my gimble bearing started to rattle, bad. I noticed it a little before, but not this bad. No big deal except Theresa's brother and kids are here from California and I promised them a fishing trip. So yesterday I bought a gimble, and all the bellows and hose and gaskets to do the job. I never did this before and it took me 12 hrs. Theresa's brother Fred and son Pacee were here for dinner and helped me finish up the job. I couldn't have finished the job without their help. So today we go to Cayuga to "shake her down". Pacee has been fishing all his life with no luck. Even on some ocean party boat trips. The only fish he ever caught was an 18 inch laker with Theresa and I last year. We braved some rough water to do that. Today was a whole different story. Started out of Deans Cove at 630. By 650 we had our first fish in the boat and it never stopped from there. We caught a total of 27 fish and lost 4. Had 6 doubles and 3 triples. (we probably didn't log them all due to the fast pace today) Pacee boated a 10.9 laker, 4 lb landlock and several other fish. We had more fun today than I have had in a while. Rods were firing all day non stop. We couldn't go wrong today the fishing was phenomenal! This young fella was so pleased he could not stop telling me thank you. He was in his wildest dream today and so were Theresa and I to see him and his Dad have so much fun. These are the days we all continue to fish for. We had the opportunity to take them fishing and the fishing could not have been better! Tons of fun, tons of fish and tons of stories to tell. That's what keeps me, and i'm sure most of us, hooked on fishing. We were able to make this young mans day today, and we were pleased to be able to do so. Hot lures today for us, Copper Back KW Rattling lure and a new color (I'm not going to say because I will get a bunch of guys calling me for this and I'm not ready for it. Sorry, but i'm already so far behind I will not possibly be able to keep up) I will say that it was a Rattling Lure as well. Thermocline is strong north of Deans Cove.
  22. launched out of tunkhannok at 5:30am running 2 rig rods and a 0 dipsey as soon as we got second rod set we looked back at first one and it was going. landlock around 18inches(still swimming) purple spoon 50ft down in 300fow. got situated and moved into 120 and took 5lb laker 80ft over 120. decided to cross lake and try by the smoke stack. get set up and lost a good fish on dypsy. rig starts bouncing lost fish. other rig bounces lost another nice fish. all within 5 min just south of smoke stack. thought game on but fish had another plan. ran back to other side of lake to troll back toward lauch get just north of lauch in 120fow and both rigs start hammering land both one was 7.5lbs one was 8. 100ft down over 120 one on green frog color spoon other on green evil eye. set rigs again and bam big hit! bring 9lber to surface and into the net with people watching from park! other rod bounces and drop another fish. wind picked up so we decided to end on a good note. must have lost 5 or 6 and landed atleast 8 or 9 dinks. great day! back at it tomorrow!
  23. The forecast looks perfect for me to jig tonight. Since I don't have a trolling motor I am limited to those rare windless days to have any chance of keeping verticle. Going to be launching out of Myers, any tips, tricks, advice, starting depths, etc. are appreciated. It's my first time trying to get them on the jig, so all (most) comments are welcome. Thanks, Chris

  25. Went out Friday afternoon out of Meyers to break in new kicker motor. The launch was open with the water just a couple of inches from swamping the dock. There was a steady semi westerly wind (8 mph or so) that was pushing a lot of debris towards the east shore. I found lots of open water, with occasional debris. The debris, lots of it, was concentrated in several long slicks in the eastern third/quarter of the lake. The open water areas did have the same or slightly more loose wood in it that we have been experiencing for the last months. A few people were up on plane in the middle of the lake. I thought they were nuts! My prediction is next week to be cautiously navagitable, two weeks before the lake is back to its pre storms state. On a happier note, I threw out some lines in the top 10 to 30 feet just for the fun of it and caught two rainbows and a chunky laker. All came on a small purple spoon. Stay safe and keep a keen eye out for debris. Remember that Cayuga is under a no wake within 500 ft of shore restriction.
