Canandaigua 8/12

Decided to do Canandaigua with the new boat this morning. I wanted to run it to work out any bugs and get familiar with it before tackling the O. I haven't seen a can report in a while so here goes.

 

The fishing was... pretty bad. Tried everything. Different color spoons. Spoon and flashers. Flasher and flies. Riggers at 40 to 90 and 100 on the bottom. Dipseys. Lead core. All we could manage was to fire one rigger rod at 80 with nobody home after a couple very small kicks. 

 

The bass boat guys were in rare form. You'd expect courtesy from other fisherman but nahh. They'd rather pass within spitting distance doing 55... Just wish I had something I didn't care about enough to throw their way.

 

On the plus side the boat ran great. Won't be screwing with the can anytime soon.

Sorry to hear that things didn't go so well with the fishing out there(which is one of the reasons for lack of reports from me at least). The boating situation is another reason I haven't ventured out here for a while...too many idiots and little to no courtesy both on the lake and at the launch....good time to keep the flare gun out of reach too I guess:lol: At least your boat ran well and that is a real plus. Things will be better here when the yahoos have their boats pulled out for them for the season after using them a couple times:)....

Yeah I wanted to get a report up in case someone was looking for a finger to hit while Ontario was rough. Seems Cayuga is hot. Canandaigua is not haha.

 

 I expect some bull every time I get on busy water this time of year. Today was bad though. The worst one... a bass boat passed on my lakeside within 15 yards wide open, curled in front of my bow wide open,  went about 30 yards shoreward dumped it and started setting up. He got the finger because I thought he thoroughly deserved it. He just shrugged.  What a prick

Where did you launch? Any location you care to share so I avoid it. I am going to try and launch in Woodville tomorrow afternoon to fish for awhile....hopefully....

Yeah and a lot of the bass guys ignore the 45 mph speed limit all the time hitting 75 or 80 mph out there where you have other jerks swimming across the lake with no escort or anything and when there is the least chop you can't even see their heads....disaster waiting to happen....

I went out of Canandaigua but this guy pulled that stunt around Seneca point. Which is south of center of the lake. I usually go out of the north end because it's closer to home and then run south to about wegmans/menteth point. From what I understand woodville is much quieter. The problem isn't where you are I don't think. It's the breed of pricks roaming the water this time of year. I see reports everywhere about somebody being a twitt on the water somewhere.

 

It's a tough time of year to fish

Ohh sorry. Yeah that rigger fired around menteth right away in the morning. Nk28 gold spoon with black and orange 80 down over 125. Spoon 100 feet back off the ball. We were only doing 2mph but there was a pretty solid south to north current this morning so im guessing downspeed was in the three range.

 

Next big purchase will be a fishawk haha

Well good luck tomorrow. Let us know how you do out of woodville. It seems that usually when I check reports if the north end is slow the south end is still producing. Maybe I'll make the extra drive from now on and go out of there

I'm thinking about trying Ontario in the am. NOAA is calling for 1-2 ft out of Braddock tomorrow. I'll probably just try inside for browns

Did the same thing with my boat prior to heading to Lake Ontario.... Was able to get into some lakers 18-28in at 100 ft down hugging the bottom with small Cleo style spoons and suttons. Trolling real slow about 1.5. Launched at the south end trolling on the west side only the lake. Goodluck!
