  4. I tested mine this morning and I observe the same thing. When I have a line rigged, my probe reads about .5 mph faster than when I don’t. I have a blacks release with the probe directly below. When I Pop the release, my probe reading drops by.5 mph. Was out with a charter on Ontario yesterday who had a blacks release and a cannon release off the ball on his probe rigger. When I asked him why, he told me that having a line in the blacks screws up his speed reading.
  5. Looks like you've got them dialed in! 10 for 12 is a good morning and those silvers are a lot of fun to catch.

  7. Sounds like an awesome morning on the water! Beautiful fish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks. My daughter’s Seneca slam hinged on that fish being a brown, so I’m happy you were able to confirm. Might seem silly, but matters a lot to a 9 yr old. And, I agree. those of you who live in and get to experience the finger Lakes on a daily basis are truly blessed. Hence the reason for my screen name. This site allows me to experience the fishing vicariously through all of you! hopefully, I’ll be up later this summer to enjoy them again in person. Until then, I’ll be checking the reports, so good luck and keep’em coming.
  9. Thanks guys!! We had a great week. My daughter is hooked, and hopefully created some memories that will last a lifetime!!! Everyone slept in this morning and we’re heading back to NJ in a few minutes. Fisherdude, I could be wrong, but I’m almost positive that was a brown in the pic. It had 4 lampreys attached when we got it in the boat and was in bad shape. Only ones we saw all week. Good luck and enjoy the rest of the summer! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Didn't fish Friday due to the wind, but headed out this morning with my father, daughter and wife. Pulled out of the hoist at 6:30 and started on a north troll. Got lines in and immediately hit a scum line full of weeds. Spent the next 20 minutes resetting lines and trying to find clean water and fish. It didn't take long. We got a little too shallow, made a sharp turn to head for deeper water and the inside rigger popped with a decent brown (with 4 lampreys attached). My daughter reeled it in and completed the Seneca Slam for the week!!!! I don't remember all the specifics, but it was pretty steady action after that. We fished 6:30 to 9:30. Ended up with 4 bows, 2 lakers, 1 brown, a break off at the back of the boat, and a bow that spit at the back of the boat. Took 3 bows on a 5 color lc with 3/4 ounce snap weight attached, and a purple/white scorpion took 2 fish as a cheater off the 45 rigger. Temps moved up 20 feet from earlier in the week with 55 being 38 down. Weeds were a nuisance, but no fleas.
  12. Thanks guys. @Les, always good to hear from you. My dad says 'hello' and wanted to know how you've been. I was planning to head out this morning, but the strong south wind kept us off the water. Decided to head out around 4:30 pm after the storms came through. Headed down to Lodi with my father and daughter to attempt to catch a brown. No luck. We found 55 degree water about 60 feet down and tried to focus on where it met bottom. We marked fish on bottom, but didn't catch any browns. We trolled all the way up past the house to the old Officer's Club and went 5 for 6, but it was slow going. Didn't get a hit until I popped the release to change a spoon and a laker hit it while it fluttered up. Dragged another small laker for a while on a rigger that we didn't realize was on until we decided to change spoons. Had a small bow take a watermelon spoon on 5 color. Tried changing spoons, depths, speeds, everything, but never really zoned in on a pattern. Decided to change out the rigger spoon again to a honey bee pattern and had a laker hit as soon as I set the rod in the holder. Reset it, added a honey bee scorpion cheater, and it was quiet for a while. Turned back south to head towards home before we pulled and doubled up shortly after. Had a laker take the main spoon on the deep rigger, dropped the speed to about 1 mph and while my daughter was getting ready to net it, the other rigger released. I took the net while she got the other rod. We landed the laker while she brought in the other line, got it to the back of the boat, one last jump and the spoon flew over the top of my head... fish was gone. Landed 4 lakers with the biggest being about 3 lbs, one small bow and another small bow that tried to take my eye out. I was very surprised that the last bow hit the cheater while we were only going about 1 mph. Makes me think that we may have been going too fast (2.0-2.8) the entire time. We marked a lot of fish and while we caught, they were all small and didn't hit aggressively. Obviously, late afternoon, between storms isn't the best time to fish, so maybe they just weren't actively feeding fish. who knows... Just a few more days and we've got to head back to NJ, so we'll be at it again in the morning (wind and weather permitting). good luck!
