  1. This is my first fall fishing the finger lakes and today was my first trip at the northend because I wanted to avoid the FLTA tournament in woodville! We found water temps in the 40s about 90 feet down and started our laker program with cheaters on the upper lines for about an hour with no luck. We switched up things a bit and put on my glow green spindoctor with a silver mag and immediately we got a release and then another with 2 lakers. about 930 we swapped out to the flasher fly program at the same depths and we pulled up 2 nice rainbows. Maybe the temps changed but what were those bows doing down so deep? strange.
  2. 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.
  3. Launched today at 7:30ish and began trolling north as soon as I hit some deep water. Breaking in my new electric downrigger (Cannon Mag5), No bites so I push farther north near the condos. Caught an 11lb 3 oz rainbow. What a thrill. Prior to this my best Bow was 6.2. No other fish after that. Cant complain, great morning. Been trying to find some browns in that lake but no luck yet, any tips? are they deeper? Been fishing from 30 to 70 ft down. Thanks Max
  4. Fished from 8-3pm. Took my 70 year old parents and 9 year old daughter out. Caught 16 fish. 9 lake trout, 2 black bass, 5 rainbows of which 1 was 8#. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Target temps were 60-90 ft down. 45 degrees at 90ft. Fished 3 dipsys and 2 snap weights with planer boards. Ran one dipsy with chrome spin doctor with gambler rig. All the rest of rods were spoons - nbk, green dolphin. Orange crush, black and white, And some smaller spoons up top with crazy red and purple patterns. Water was low at north launch. Lots of cars in parking lot when we left as well. Got the new 2 month old boat nice n fishy and dirty. I think I need some lessons on fileting lake trout. My daughter wanted to keep some. Great day on water.
  5. Trolled north end Saturday night for a couple hours, nothing. Went out again Sunday morning from 7-10. Only fish was a small rainbow 25 feet down on a dipsey / silver Sutton 44.
  6. We were originally going to fish bears tournament on Cayuga but logistically couldn’t make it work so we decided to hit Canandaigua and ran into another trout tournament at the launch. we ended up getting 3 in the boat with a bunch of misses. I need to pick up some new treble hooks. Silver was the color today! I got this pretty bow on a cheater probably about 45 down going south on the west side Around 10am. We ended up keeping it and throwing it in the smoker for dinner.
  7. Launched at 530 got first laker at 630 and it was steady up until 9am and then it shutdown hard! This is the first trip I was skunked on silvers and my trusty silver bullet JPlug came up empty! It seems the thermocline is setting up at about 95 feet and we had most out action at 90 on yellow orange spoons with a Mountain Dew paddle flasher. We had zero hits on the glow green spin doctors and plain silver which usually is the hot setup at Canandaigua for me!
  8. We left rochester at 430 while it was still raining and it stopped as soon as we got to the south end launch in woodville bout 515. we struggled for the first few hours with weeds submerged about 30 to 40 foot down. Also the southend was a total washout and muddy. once we finally got about a mile north of the launch we had some better luck, water was clear and we had better luck! The wife struggled to get this beautiful bow in the boat took about 15 min! We are planning on hitting deans Friday morning with my old man!
  9. Start 6:30 at north end. Didn’t mark much on west side, went over to east side, more marks. Got two small bows, one 16” and one 17”. Both 30 feet down in about 100 fow, on silver Sutton 44. Surface temp 64. Done at 9:30.
  10. I read a post on a non finger lakes thread, and it implied that the fleas were already present on Canadaigua. Does anyone have a report on this.
  11. On the water at 530 to 1030 boated 2 and had about 6 releases. I was using some NK silver Magnums I got off eBay that I should of sharpened ahead of time, shame on me. I was about 70 feet down stacked at 15 feet with magnums on spin doctors on the bottom and silver jplugs on top. I swear this lake only likes silver and no UV! hoping to be out next Friday when the moon is in a waning crescent.
  12. hi Recently moved to area from out of state and have been trolling Canadaguia north end last couple of weekends. We caught 5 Lakers last Sunday ranging from 18 to 25". Fishing regs state 21" size minimum but finger lakes have a 15" minimum size? Just want to make sure I understand regs. Thanks Cheers!
  13. Hi All, I just bought my first boat (Lund Rebel XL 1650 Tiller). I am looking to head to Canandaigua tomorrow morn to get the kids out panfishing. Does anyone know where I can pick up some certified Minnows. I am hoping to launch at the North end. Thanks,
  14. Launched at the north end 9AM. Battery dead. Go to auto parts store. Purchase and install new battery. Bam - $132. Fished north and south from the Christian Camp to Steamboat Landing and back unitl about 1230. Boated 20. Lost another 15. Method: Tackle: Ocean Roller Tip Rod, Penn 49L. Copper wire. I think it is .22 gauge. I like the braided wire but you can use solid. Lures: Pflueger 4. One with fixed hook. One with dangling hook. 4 1/2 and 5's work fine too. You can use Pflueger knock-off's and other brands as well. I used all silver but blue and white combo works very well too. Some people use mag lip type lures or something called a twin minnow. The intent is to get a lure that will look like a sawbelly aka alewive. No backing. No leader. Wire straight from the reel to the lure. Depth: 35 - 40' Presentation: Trolling, Jerking and Fluttering Motion bottom bouncing. Hold the line in your hand when you manipulate the lure. Speed: 1-1.3MPH. Slower seemed to be better. If you don't have electronics just go between the points north and south. Should be the same this weekend. We saw them on the graph before we got them. Make sure hooks are sharp and you have to be on the bottom. To get there I put out almost 75-90% of a full reel on the 49L. If you don't catch or hook something in 5 minutes, reel up and check your hook for a weed or zebra mussel. I've been doing this same method for 45 years and it always works. Your arm should be tired at the end of the day. Also spotted a ton of (smaller) fish in the 15-20' range but didn't try too hard to get them. There is a huge depth change in front of the camp so watch for that. Good spot on the incline. Good luck.
  15. Fished the south end this morning from 530 to 930 and got 2 lakers in the boat and 3 that jumped off. One was a rainbow that jumped about a foot out when my youngest was on the retrieval and snapped the swivel. Spindoctors with 32 inch leaders with old school NBK silver was the ticket for lakers. The rainbow hit on my upper stack on a silver plug.
  16. Anyone know if the south launch is open yet?
  17. Hey guys, first time posting on this been a member for a few years. Usually like to try and figure things out myself but could use some help. Couple weeks ago went out on canandaigua south end and hooked up with a beautiful brown on a stickbait, went out a few times after and marked fish but no action. First time out we drifted with the wind and last few times trolled around 2-2.5mph. don't know if we just got lucky the first time out and are too early or just doing something wrong. Would really appreciate the help, thanks! - Sean
  18. 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
  19. Is the lake open/available to fish by boat? The south launch that is. I've never fished it in the spring so I don't know when it de-ices or launch is usable. Thanks
  20. 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!
  21. i'm hoping to get out Saturday. I'm guessing it's frozen over, but does anyone know for sure? thanks, dre
  22. Anyone fish Canandaigua this time of year? Also does the lake ever freeze up thick enough to ice fish?
  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. 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. Same price, same rules, same payouts and plaques, and same fun weigh-in! Need to pre-register by 5;00PM on Friday, October 11th. 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.
  25. I was thinking about going to Lake O solo this morning but my wife said " why don't you fish out here and I can go along". Of course I said "yes" (for a whole lot of reasons). We got a late start and were on the water about 10 AM (quit at 4PM) . I used 2 downriggers cheated and a 300 copper trolling first the east side down to Pelican Point then across by Wegman's and down the west side. Caught a total of 7 lakers despite fishing for rainbows. None was over 4 pounds. The interesting thing to me is that 6 came on the cheaters and one came on the 300 copper and my trolling speed was from 3.1 to 3.57 and nearly all came from 3.3 plus.....I couldn't get away from them; one even hit a magnum spoon No sign of rainbows today. Saw a lot of bait at the south end. I didn't run any deeper than about 6o feet over whatever (the 300 copper may have been running higher than usual too given the speed). Marked a lot of fish in the 40-60 ft range thinking they were probably rainbows but the ones that hit at least were lakers. I didn't put down the probe to check temps but surface was 74. Usually about now the rainbows are out in the middle portion of the lake so we fished mostly 140- 210 and most fish marked were in that range as was the bait. Strange day! Quite a few weeds out there, a lot of algae pooling up in long bands throughout the south end both sides and the fleas were there but "doable"
