  1. On seneca lake the temp is between 60 and 70 until about 20 meters at 20 meters the temp breaks off sharply to 50 degrees and then continues to fall down in to the 40s and then flat lines out according to the water quality bouy readings on the lake it's my assumption that the thermal break on the graf would be the thermalcline maybe I'm wrong. I don't have a temp probe either. I also looked at Owasco lake bouy and that has a break at also the same general area. So 20 meters is between 60 and 70 ft. I also noted that on both lakes there was a change in the oxygen saturation right at about the same depth. Seems to me that the 2 have something to do with each other. I'm not a marine Biologist and normally fish where I see marks and if not marking many fish fish depths that I have fished in the past and had success at certain times of the year. Or I just fish multiple depths until I can get some hook ups and duplicate what was working on which ever rod fired. Maybe now I'm thinking to much or maybe all summer I didn't have to think enough because the fish were so scattered. I do know that Monday when I fished about 4 pm I had surface temps above 70 and decided to go swimming after cooking in the sun all day. When I dove off of the boat there was a huge change in temp not far below the surface. Got cold quick

  2. What are the deep marks. I was surprised to see bait that deep too. Was thinking of trying to park over them and drop a jig down there but at the time my ambition level was pretty low. That seemed awful deep for bait and fish to me. I've seen it before but not like I saw it yesterday. Would have loved to try to drop something down there but they were way lower than the amount of cable I have on my down riggers. Also being manual riggers that would have been way too much like work

  3. Launched out of Myers at abou 10 am. Hard to get there any earlier than that because of work lately. Anyway motors north to Kidders and set up on a north troll. Running solo. 1 rigger at 95 1 at 70 and a dipsys out 180 on a 1. Bounced back and forth from shallow to deep and finally picked 1 st fish up on the 90 rigger on about same depth. That would be it for about 2 hrs. Changed up presentations spoons fly different paddles nothing. Found the weeds to be a nuisance so moved out to the middle of the lake and pointed back south. This is where my best screens were. Marked a ton of bait a ton of big fish in the 180 to 220 range over 300 + ft of water. All suspended fish all big fish in amongst huge bait piles. Oh well not much I can do with them. Anyway fished south from long point to Aes. With out moving a rod. Frustrated picked up shop and motored south to the cliffs north of Myers and set up shop again. Bang bang bang. Boxed out on Lakers in about an hour. All in the 80 ft range over different depths. Boy was it hot today for late September I guess you can't really complain.. side note. Last few trips have seemed slow. Those deep marks are odd to me. Maybe with the high sun and heat a lot of the fish have moved very deep to avoid the sun in the middle of the day I guess I don't know. Defiantly slow for me the last few trips. Really had to work for them. Maybe the lake is starting to transition some or getting ready to " flip" I know fishing mid day is not helping but I have defiantly noticed a decline in both fish and bait where I was finding them all summer. Gonna have to put some braid on my down rigger and go after those deep marks. Any one know blow back chart for 220 ft. Good luck out ther.

  4. I'm not sure I understand the reasoning to have the weigh in at a ace that is not accessible by boat. Weather you are coming from the east or the west or north or south if the weigh in is on the water where you can get to by boat will give each angler more fishing time. I'm not complaining about it for my self it has no effect on me. I can't fish the tournament but guys that may fish the tournament that have to travel to the lake are now going to have less time on the water to fish. Anyone that launches at long point or at Myers has a hour or better drive by car around the lake to the weigh in and that doesn't include loading there boat. Like I said I can't fish the tournament but I'm worried it may have negative results on the turnout. Maybe in wrong.

  5. Have.you given thought to possibly having the weigh in at like Dons marina or at the Shaldreke winery or Kidders. Those places are all close to the middle of ther lake and would make it so everyone has to motor to the weigh in. Just a thought not sure if any of the places I've listed are fisherman friendly but might be worth asking.

  6. Launched out of Myers at 10 am. Late start. Went south to the yacht club and set up trolling north. Found the lake to be flat as glass and no marks anywhere fished until I was a little north of Myers and crossed back to the east side of the lake. While coming across lake in about 250 ft of water rigger fired. Rigger was set at 80 ft with another line stacked 40 ft up with a blaze Orange j plug. The fish instantly peeled a fair share of drag and then ran right for the surface. Fish never came out of the water but I thought it was going to anyway after a couple more runs the fish spit the hook. Wish I could have seen that one. Must have been a nice rainbow but never got a look. Any way after that bounced over to the west shore and fished from T Falls to a little north of the boy scout camp with out moving a rod. Circled back and fished the cliffs north of Myers where we picked up 2 fish a decent lake trout and the smallest land lock I have ever caught. Dipsys varryed in depth fro 140 to 300 and went threw all the settings 1 to 3. Parked riggers at 80 and 60 both with flasher flies with a second rod stacked at different depths on both. Fished spoons flies spin and glows everything I had just a off day. Anyway off the lake at 4 20170914_145723.jpg. Just a slow day. Not the best time of day to be out but gotta go when you can. Marked most fish in 200 + ft down anywhere from 40 to 160. Good luck out there hoping to get out a few more times before fall sets in
