  1. I'm hoping to do a Mon. evening troll for lakers on Owasco. lake north end.it will be my first outing in 2 years do to illness and any updated info would be appreciated..I plan on trolling from Fay's Pt. north with the usual hardware."THANKS". Gary
  2. Launched out of the South Shore Marina fishing the Finger Lakes Trollers Assosiation Tourney and ran North, found some good looking water and decided to setup in a 100 fow a bit before where I planned ... We ran rigs, cores, coppers and riggers... Well it didn't take long and we were bringing laker after laker to the boat... The lakers wanted small spoons and red and orange were hot colors.. We got 3 decent lakers in the cooler and decided to sneak in a bit shallower and found some good bait and nice marks and worked the area for a bit and changing out a lot of colors until we found out what the fish wanted and it finally paid off landing 2 really nice Rainbows and releasing the smaller of the 2.... About mid morning started heading back south and all the boats that where focused to the south end in the morning were up north now so we had the southend to ourselves so focused out deep and found some real active marks and dropped the gear to them and it was game on instantly improving our laker box in 10 mins... We needed 1 more off fish so snuck back in shallow for one last shot at a brown and it pays off bringing a nice 4.5 brown to the boat..... We ended the day going 19 for 19 and headed to the scales... Knew we had a good box but thought it would probably be a close one with all the great competition and fisherman in our club... We end up pulling off the win with a total weight 25.11 lbs and taking home the FLTA Owasco Tournament ... Finger Lakes tackle and some of our old O&M lures were the hot ticket today, bright colors seemed to be the ticket.... Great job to all that fished and see you at Cayuga the 22nd.... Mike
  3. Pre fished Owasco tue. Finally got my Dad to go fishing with me again. Been over a year since he has fished with me. It was good to be able to fish with him again (even though he kept trolling at 3.5 -4 mph). I hope he continues to go with me, and his health allows him to go. So, Owasco looks to have a better population of fish than Keuka did. East shore was loaded with fish in the 20-60 fow. In the middle of the lake their were also tons of fish in the 20-40 ft range. Lots of big hooks on the bottom and quite a bit of bait. South end color was a bit green, but the north end was almost brown. Surface water temp was 58-60 deg. Quite a change from Seneca and Keuka, but Owasco is a small lake. Gonna try and get back over their before June 1st, but not sure I will be able to fit it in. I believe the Owaco weigh in is gonna be an impressive one! Should be some nice fish weighed in. We lost a wheel bearing on the way home, but you'll have that every now and then.
  4. Just wanted to start this thread for and FYI. Many may know there is a survey out from DEC to look at fish preferences for Owasco. I saw no need for the survey, but some wanted it to see if they could get support back for walleye in the lake. DEC said they will not manage lake for both walleye and brown/rainbow(it would be an either/or). The survey to date has shown a poor response rate, but those that have come in is a greater than 65% support for trout fishery. One way or another we can hope this will end the debate so we can move foward and try to get the once great fishery back. We need to understand that the 15+ mile long inlet, with lots of public fishing rights, is part of that fishery as well. An inlet that used to team with very large rainbows. I for one would hope we can come up with positive ideas and solution to get the lake back, even if just modestly, to what it once was. Everyone has seen how fragile the lake near them can be, all the finger lakes have gone through challenging times. I could go on and but, that is my thought for what little it is worth.
  5. Great post re the Owasco walleyes..... Can u somehow PM me UR email address?
  6. Took a small brown this morning around 8:30 on a purple black and white thunder stick. Had all our hits on thunder sticks. Was on lead core with 3colors out. Went 1for 5. Glad to see some brown action again
  7. The guys at region 7 were nice enough to send me the information for the diary program in 2010. I fail to turn in my info in 2010 for region 8 and 7, no real good reason I just got so busy on the boat my record keeping sucked. We have a new system set up on the boat this year and so far all fish have been recorded. I wish I would have in 2010, a lot more rainbows would have been recorded. I see on Owasco only two rainbows were recorded . Also I see no more walleyes have been stocked since 2009 in the lake, and a 50% stocking reduction in Lake Trout happened in 2010. This is to aid in the recovery of the fisheries for brown trout and rainbow trout. I hope it works out. I know I am going to miss the walleyes it was nice to have a place to go catch them. That said I can see why they are doing what they are doing. Sean
