  1. Has anyone launched from Dean's Cove in the past when the lake level is as low as it is now? I walked to the end of the dock today and my tape measure hit bottom with just 18 inches of water. Doesn't look like it gets much deeper past the dock either. Does DEC ever dig out all the silt and dead leaves on the bottom? I'm assuming Taughannock is the only spot on the West side that has a channel deep enough to launch. Anyone with past experience please let me know.
  2. Headed out of Taughannock yesterday by 7am. This was after I took the ice spud to the 3 inches at the shoreline and about 20 feet out into the launch. Was well prepared with spud and waders as I had checked it out the Friday afternoon prior. (You're welcome to anyone who came in after us.) The bubbler is working but with the extreme cold weather it could not keep up with the shoreline icing up. The channel itself was narrow but open. Ran boards with sticks and spoons. All the normal patterns I run this time of year. Ran about a half hour with nothing than it was on with pretty much non-stop action till we pulled the plug at 2:30, had to get home to sleep, worked 3rd shift on Sunday night so I could get out again this morning. The bag was mixed, browns salmon and lakers. Biggest brown was 8lb4oz biggest salmon was 6lb13oz. Lakers ran up to 7-8ish. Light chop on the water as the winds were about 10mph. We kept a 2 man limit with many released. Great easy day and felt great to be on the water, hadn't been on the lake since before deer season back in September. Between hunting and working 6 day weeks, haven't had any spare time for the boat and usually get out many times in December and January. As for today, totally different day. Launched by 7 again with no ice to chip today lol. Fished same areas with very few fish marked and only boated 2 lakers with only a couple other hits. Too nice of a day obviously and the parking lot was full with boat trailers when we came in, we packed it in around 1.I can't get back out till Sunday, I'm hoping for cold, overcast and 8-12 mph wind, fish will bite and fair weather fisherman will stay home.

  5. Had some time this afternoon so headed to Dean's and on the water by 2:30. Went North and zigzagged from 60-150 fow in search of fish. The screen had the most marks throughout the water column in 110-130 fow. Tinkered with speed from 1.6-2.3 and adjusted lure depths a few times. Finally found hungry lake trout down 80 feet. Picked up 3 stout fish off the chute copper with a flasher/fly. They liked the speed below 2.0. 3 other times that rod fired but fish didn't hook up. One laker took a spoon off the rigger also at 80 feet down. Plenty of fish were higher in the column but they were not buying what I was selling. Off the water at 4:30 and a fish fry with the family for dinner. Plenty of fillets left so excited to try out the smoker my wife gave me for Christmas. Hoping this Winter has more calm days like today!

  7. With deer season over I'm hoping to hit Cayuga when the weather cooperates from now through April but I've never fished it this time of year. Summer and Fall I've typically worked from 120 fow and deeper with spoons on downriggers and flasher/flies on dipseys or a copper down the chute. What adjustments should I make now? I do have some inline boards for shallow fishing but never used. Don't have stickbaits but Christmas is coming so should I have certain styles on my list? Thanks in advance for your input. Greg
  8. Launched out of Treman. Water level down maybe 15" but no issues launching my 196 fish master. Headed straight to the East side. Trolled North 1 mile then back. Picked up lakers with every pass. Started in 40FOW then moved out to 65FOW. Both Riggers at 60', 4 top water/diver lines on boards. Picked up a dozen or so lakers, all on cowbells with spin n glo. No takers with spoons, stick baits slow, 1 LL to the boat (14 inches) and lost 2 others on J7's, both probably same size. Water temp surface 42.3 deg. Two other boats trolling, one perch fishing.nice getting out in December (usually have to wait till end of January).

  13. I'm fairly new to the area and I don't have a boat, so I've been wondering if there are some good fishing spots from shore around the southern end of Cayuga Lake or its tributaries. Fall Creek by Stewart Park? Salmon Creek/Myers Point/Salt Point? Thanks for any suggestions . . .

    Cayuga Cayuga 10/8

    Took my old buddy Mack out today. He is 93 years young a still can get the job done. Did most of our damage on lakers with grease trap spin-n-glo combo. No big ones but they were healthy hard fighting fish. Highlight of the day was 9 lb salmon. This fish was on the rigger on purple/pink super slim spoon 115 feet down. Jumped 10 or 15 times, wrapped around two wire rods and was making me a nervous wreck. one stab with the net and it was over. That was the best show I have seen in a long time. Picture does not do this fish justice

    Cayuga Cayuga 10/7

    A busy weekend but finally had a chance to get out on the water this afternoon. Could not convince my daughter to come along so a solo trip. Didn't expect the North wind to create such a chop but it was a nuisance until I was heading back when of course, it died down. Found some Lake trout, (including the bookends in the picture) that were all over the white flasher/fly combo on the chute copper. Couldn't make anything happen with spoons and no active silvers, not even a Skippy. Ended up a nice couple hours on the lake.....way better than the alternative of watching the Giants lose again!!

  22. Had my best day of laker fishing this past Friday. I'm kind of new to freshwater fishing (mainly a saltwater guy as I live in NYC), so was really happy to connect on some quality lakers. When I've fished for lakers in the past, I've managed to jig up one fish over 4 -5 hrs of fishing, but was able to land 4 fish on Friday, and dropped 4 others. Largest went 29", and the smallest was around 26". All released to fight another day. Launched out of Taughannock on my kayak, and jigged soft plastic paddletails all day. Tried using a blade bait for a little while, but didn't get any hits on it. Caught fish in 80 - 100 ft of water. Regarding lakers, do you guys like eating them or is it mainly a CP&R? I was never really a big fan of eating freshwater fish, except for the occasionally perch/sunfish fish fry. Also have a question regarding salmon and brown trout. I haven't caught either of these guys on Cayuga. Do you guys specifically target them or do you catch them while jigging for lakers. I typically don't troll for fish as my main way of fishing, but will troll from fishing spot to fishing spot.
  23. Going to try north of long point this weekend. How has the fishing been? I'm taking a women out for her first time trolling on the finger lakes and would like to get into something. Any help is appreciated.

    Cayuga Cayuga 9/16

    Put in early at Dean's Cove and enjoyed the sunrise while heading farther South than I've run all Summer. Set up on the West side near the Boy Scout Camp and started trolling North. Trying some new things, dypsy with a dodger and fly along with an inline board towing a stick bait. Third line was a rigger at 60 and added a cheater. Has there been a recent release of landlocks down there? Skippies were a nuisance hitting the rigger constantly for the first half of the 3 hour troll. Could not get anything else going so swapped out the dodger for a mountain dew flasher and a stout Laker grabbed it down about 85 over 120. Put the board away and ran 500 copper down the chute with a white flasher fly combo and could hardly keep it set before another Laker on it. Pretty consistent that as zig zag from 100-200 fow the action tended to be at 140. Kept 2 for an ERabbit style fish fry tomorrow night and let 3 more go, all were easily 7 pounds and up. Never could get anything bigger than a Skippy off the rigger. A beautiful morning on the water but it started to heat up by 10 so called it a day.
