  1. Saeger Marine in Canandaigua. Excellent techs. Give us a call. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  2. Just as an FYI - looking at past spring perch tournament results (5 fish): 4/10/21 - 6.02 4/13/19 - 6.91 4/14/18 - 6.55 4/29/17 - 5.85 4/1/17 - 7.50 4/30/16 - 6.61 4/2/16 - 6.39 4/25/15 - 6.34
  3. Thanks for posting results Frogger. We had a great showing with 31 teams entered. Biggest fish was 1.695 (caught by 1st place team) and 2nd biggest was 1.5. Most teams had one good fish about 1#+/-. Weather was about the best we've ever had for the spring tournament. We've decided to call the spring tournaments 'Annual Bob Groeling Memorial Tournaments'. Unfortunately we lost Bob earlier this year. He spent a LONG time heading up our service department at Seager Marine. Most everyone knew and loved him. We will hang a plaque and add the winners name to it each year. We hope everyone had fun on that beautiful day and made some great memories. There was a great crowd at weigh-in and lots of chatter and laughter! Hope everyone has a nice summer and we'll see you all in the fall.
  4. Reminder - Sign up on line at our website. Weather's looking very nice!! Also , heard that the perch are biting pretty good. Let's have some fun!
  5. Website is up and running for registrations now. Click on 'Other' and then 'Perch Tournament'
  6. That's asking a lot, Les! That would be nice though. Sure hope you can make it this year. You'll have to stop in and visit and see our new construction. The showroom is going to be really nice. Our service area has been expanded quite a bit as well.
  7. Save the Date! April 10, 2021, we'll be holding our annual Seager Marine Spring Perch Tournament. Entry fee will be the same at $40/team, up to 3 people per team, weigh 5 fish. I have attached the registration form and rules. We plan to set it up so you can register from our website (not set yet). Hope you all can make it. It's a great way to start the spring fishing season. Perch Registration April 10 2021.pdf Perch Rules Spring 2021.pdf
  8. It wasn't open last Tuesday. Not sure what it's like now. Very shallow in the channel before it iced over.
  9. I have a 20' Robalo center console and I troll with 2 bags and they work great. You can call Amish Outfitters and tell them what you have and they'll recommend the right size for you (1-800-473-1748). I tried a spring loaded trolling plate and it worked fine for a while. Then I was trying to control my boat when docking on a windy day and had to give it some gas in reverse. The plate got sucked in and damaged my prop and ripped a chunk out of my cavitation plate (and the trolling plate went to the bottom of the lake). That's when I decided it was bags or a kicker! Obviously, bags are much cheaper. I also agree with Justin, I had a pontoon set up for trolling for a lot of years and it was a great setup. I just wanted to try something different. I may go back to the pontoon at some point.
  10. Well, it was a nice warm day for the tournament, but the south winds were up and the fishing was tough. I'm sure that it might have been difficult to fish you're favorite spots, but several teams hung in there and did pretty well. In 1st place was Team Kevin Oliver with 4.27 lb and also the largest perch at 1.135 lbs. Second place went to the Brian Richardson team at 3.90 lbs, 3rd place was the Don Huberth team at 3.62 lbs, and 4th place went to the Jeremy McGregor team with 3.41 lbs. Thanks to all who participated and came to the weigh in for pizza, wings, and refreshments and the good old fishing stories. Always great to see the familiar faces and say hello after we missed the spring tourney. See you all in spring 2021!! Ted
  11. Website is up and running for entries. Click on 'Other' tab and then 'Perch Tournament'. Rules are there and option to sign up online. Long range weather forecast looks pretty good.
  12. We have decided that it's time to get out there and have some fun. The Seager Marine Fall Perch Tournament will be held on Canandaigua Lake this year on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Same price, same rules, same payouts and plaques, and same fun weigh-in! We'll just need to be careful and wear some masks at weigh-in and keep our social distance. I think you'll really be impressed by the new look of our pier location. Need to pre-register by 5:00PM on Friday, October 9th. Entry fee is $40 per team (1 - 3 persons), weigh-in 5 live perch for total weight. Fishing hours are 7:00am to 3:00pm, weigh-in at 3:30pm. We'll have reg forms and rules up on our website soon. Just wanted everyone to save the date.

    OK thanks. I'll probably head to Bristol Harbor and south.

    I assume you stayed down south? I was up north and it was very quiet (fishing wise!). I have a friend coming in from out of town to fish this week so I guess I better make the run south. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 6/16

    Thanks Dan. Good ole Sutton 88 huh? I would think that they would be spinning at that speed, but maybe currents have something to do with it. I plan to go out Saturday and see if I can find a few. Thanks for the comeback and info. Much appreciated.
  16. Very nice Les! I’ll be out Saturday. Hope to do as well. Just trying to figure out what to run. Riggers, leadcore, dipsy’s? Guess I’ll have to try all. Then where to go. So many decisions. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

  20. Well - we really hoped we could pull this off, but with all that is going on these crazy days, we decided that it's best to cancel the Seager Marine Spring Perch tournament that was scheduled for 4/18/20. Hopefully things will get back close to normal and we'll be ready to rock and roll in the fall. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and catching lots of fish! Hope to see some of you 'social distancing' out on the water! Ted
  21. DON'T GIVE UP! We still plan to hold this perch tournament. We are trying to figure out a way to do it kind of virtually. The plan that we're discussing is to go by total length of 5 fish, instead of weight. I know this is not the norm for a perch tourney, but it keeps us all away from each other at a weigh in. We would all have to be on our best behavior and keep it honest. You would all send pictures of your fish on a bump board or ruler. Then we would mail out prizes/plaques. Unfortunately, we would lose the camaraderie and story-telling (not to mention the refreshments), but perhaps we could put something together for you guys to take out with you in the morning. This would require that all boats head out of the north launch at Canandaigua and we'd meet for a second prior to starting so we could hand out goodies/maybe rulers/cable ties. Still a work in progress, but we're trying to find a way to make it work so everyone can still get out there and have a little fun and competition. The lake is about the best place to be these days! Let me know if anyone has any ideas that might help this to run smoothly. Thanks, Ted
  22. Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow so spring will be here before you know it!! We're holding our annual Seager Marine spring perch tournament on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Same as last year - team of 1 to 3, $40 entry, and full payback. You can sign up right from our website if you'd like (www.seagermarine.com). This should be set up in the next few days. You can also stop in at 21 Parrish St anytime (Monday - Saturday). The pier building is undergoing renovations, but we'll still hold the weigh-in at that location. Hope to see you all again soon. Refreshments and lively chatter as always at the weigh-in!
  23. We had 7 teams tough it out on a cold and wet Saturday. All teams hung in there for the full day and weighed in their 5 fish over the pizza and wings. First place went to McGregor team with 4.41#, second to LaMagna team with 4.16#, third to Allen team with 3.71#, and fourth to Rogers team with 3.65#. Largest perch was 1.15# in the McGregor bag. Thanks to all who signed up and we'll see you in the spring!
  24. That's an awesome bow! North end? Any other details? I was out for a quick troll yesterday near the pump house and found a laker and a bass. I hope to get out again this Saturday if I can skip out of work at Seagers!
  25. Yes - it's that time of year again! The Seager Marine Fall Perch Tournament will be held on Canandaigua Lake this year on Saturday, October 12, 2019.
