  1. The only cam site I know is the cla’s site
  2. Can we start a thread with water temp and ice reports right here for Chautauqua lake. North and south basin preferred. Any info appreciated. Thanks!!
  3. So is everyone done for the year with the open water bite? Some of the inland lakes are still doing ok.. Chautauqua or bear but I may be done for the year if I don’t hear of anything great coming from the big lake. Any reports are greatly appreciated. Thanks guys and tight lines!

    Ya u gotta try going 2-2.5 and leadcore and dipsys. Gotta use crankbaits this year for sure. Also do research on what kind of leadcore to use ( every brand dives differently.) I use sufix 832 and I love it and it dives about 7-8 fpc depending on speed and u can find videos on dipsy setups and what sticks guys like more than others. I can’t even tell u how many videos I watched and articles I looked up. It takes just as much time on the computer researching different stuff and making sure u have the right gear and know where ur bait is. Always willing to help out a fellow angler! Hopefully we get a couple more flat days so u can try it out again.

    Those eyes.... there are a lot of variables to account for. Today my screen was some of the best all year with fish from 65- tight to the bottom. Straight out of the Catt was awesome today. I used purple crankbaits on leadcore on two outside rods and a dipsy with a purple worm harness on my 3rd pole. I was only able to put the third pole out once bc the bite was so hot. Idk what to tell ya other than there is definitely fish out there from 65-85 ft all over. The hard part is figuring out how to get down there to them. I guess u gotta figure out what works. Try crankbaits though. Also I hate tipping stuff bc it really effects the motion of the lure or spoon. Maybe that’s just me.

    Today was the best bite all year for me. A little bumpy getting out but not bad once ur out there. Gotta troll with the waves. 15 fish in 45 min. One 8 pounder and the rest were 18-22 perfect eaters. Loving purple. Great morning now off to work.

    Great day today. Took mom out fishing this am. Fished 80-90 ft just west of Catt. Most fish were at 60-70. Pretty easy 2 man limit in 2 1/2 hrs. Finished the morning on a triple. A little bumpy but I’ll take it for October. Should be good tomorrow too. About 15 boats out there. And a few trying for perch. Fish still loving anything purple! Have fun guys!

    Lots of reports. Plenty of fish on the bottom and a few reports of fish suspended. Fish are def still there. Hopefully last nights cold snap doesn’t change anything but the lake temp is 65 and the fish are everywhere. If it were me I would pick up minnows to try to find the perch after the limit of walleye. That’s how it’s been^

    Good day. Got calmer as the day went on. 2 man limit by 9 o’clock. Kept fishing for fun and probably caught 20-22 fish altogether and off the water by 1030. One big slob,8 lber, the rest were in the perfect size range 18-24. Loved anything purple today. I used purple cranks and purple harnesses. Both worked great. Hopefully this patch of weather doesn’t screw it all up bc it is on fire right now.
