  1. There are recent posts on Seneca with good advice from people that know much more than me. I have noticed over the last few years that trolling through huge bait balls has been a waste of time for me. There are fish around the bait but I don’t catch many of them. I’ve had better luck looking for groups of fish in areas with less bait on the screen. There are days where it seems like bait is everywhere. I haven’t seen that as much this year. Also noticed that 10 or so years ago certain spoons or set ups worked consistently. Now I’m finding that cowbells work one day but not the next, pulling copper is not as consistent, silver fish are very hit or miss.
  2. A lot of bait so fishing is tough. Try changing technique if you aren’t catching fish. Others are figuring it out.
  3. I forgot this was a new fishing stream that nobody knows about. Sorry
  4. Just pay attention to rain and go explore. I haven’t had a lot of success on any tribs but when I have it mostly comes by timing creek conditions.
  5. Yeah I saw the trucks this spring on the stream on way down to PA and next day back. Article says Catharine Canal. Must be that part is done separately.
  6. I think that is meant to put on a reel. Copper line for hand lining is usually solid 20 to 22 gauge.
  7. How many sawbellies does each laker in Keuka need to grow better?
  8. Conesus Lake actually contains 139 billion gallons of water not million. I’m not saying there isn’t room for improvement with that plant but these groups make over the top claims and lose credibility.
  9. Glad I’m not the only who noticed how terrible that dock is. Just think the water is higher than normal right now. When we get a low water year it will be completely useless. Only problem is I don’t know any other places to launch up there. I would stick with the south end of canandaigua for the reasons Sk8man mentioned and the fishing has been pretty good down there.
  10. I’d go with Hemlock if you want rainbows. Troll thermocline or slightly below or above. Canadice if you want lakers. Focus on bottom for lakers.
  11. Not sure what invasive specie you mean but I didn’t get anything out of the ordinary
  12. Shore fishing was good yesterday. Was casting for trout but ended up having fun with some nice smallmouth.
