Largest perch was 0.885# weighed in by the Lortscher team. Hope to see you all over the winter. Please stop in to visit with us at our sales location at 21 Parrish St. We do have plenty of new Lunds in stock if anyone is looking for something new. Thanks, Ted.

  3. Is anyone having any luck catching crappie or any other pan fish on canandaigua. I am going to try for some this afternoon/evening and am trying to see how people have been doing.
  4. Day 1 we launched at 445am with Jeremy and my Father in-law, lines were in at 5am sharp. We setup in 150 fow west side and noticed fish were up high! 50 degree temp break was 47 feet down. Didn’t mark a ton of bait 80 foot torpedo weighted steel brought in bring 3 bows and 1 miss. Can’t tell you how much I love weighted steel! Such a great product! No tangles and super durable. 5 color brought in 2 lakers no bows. Riggers at 47 we’re also hot bring in 1 bow and a handful of of lakers Ran gamblers with a UV 2 face and alien glow with green and yellow bells brought a handful of fish. The 6.5lb laker Jeremy caught that was on the board for a few hours was caught on the UV2 Face in 120 fow on the bottom Dipsy set at 2 at 125 with a glo green jeans flasher and glow green spin n glo brought up a nice laker but nothing else on that setup. Back at the dock by 11am sine Jeremy had to work in the after noon! Day 2 My awesome wife Erika and I launched at 5am on the dot and had rods in quick in 70 fow east side thanks to some intel from a buddy. Riggers were set 47 foot down . Used the northern king bloody nose glow and green dot glow that I charged for about 1 min before they went down had us doubled up before we could set the 80 weighted steel. Brought in a nice 8lb laker and a 6lb laker. marked a lot of bait on the east side in 60 to 70 fow! Temp Break at 50 was only 40 feet down. The west side was yesterday was 47 feet down. 5 color was hot with the blue gold UV and blue silver UV colors on some prototype spoons I can’t share. They pulled in about 5 decent sized lakers through the day. 80 weighted steel down 15 was hot on the brown trout orange cup (also a prototypes) and so did the white and blue and orange alewife. Swapped out to the silver DW mag and that took 2 bows the brown trout also took about 3, chin music took 2 Riggers were the quietest today and landed 2 lakers. The bows wanted to play today and the 3 color was hot. I should of put the 3 colors of the 5 color rod out the back of the boat most of the day because as soon as I did that for the last hour and picked up 2 more. back at the dock by 11am Best 2 day depth was 70 fow on the east side at 2.3 mph Last year the Canandaigua Derby was my first non FLTA competitive fishing tournament and In 2 days of fishing I only landed like 3 fish. It was humbling and really lit a fire in me to figure out other ways to catch fish outside just using riggers. This year with led core, weight steel and divers we boated easy 30 fish. Thanks to Dan P and Brett Curtis for sharing intel through out the weekend.
  5. 85% of me is looking forward to the derby in a few weeks! The other 15% hates all the boat pressure on one of my favorite fingerlakes! Who’s going?
  6. Save the Date! April 9, 2022, we'll be holding our annual Bob Groeling Memorial Perch Tournament (formerly Seager Marine Spring Perch Tournament). Entry fee will be the same at $40/team, up to 3 people per team, weigh 5 fish. Registration form and rules will be posted soon. We plan to set it up so you can register from our website (not set yet). Better yet, stop in and see us in our new showroom at our 21 Parrish St location. Hope you all can make it. It's a great way to start the spring fishing season.
  7. It was quite a day for a lot of the folks today. We had several boats come in with 6+ pounds total for the 5 perch. First place was 6.67#, 2nd was 6.61#, 3rd was 6.51#, and 4th was 6.49#. Biggest perch was 1.81#. It was great to see such a great turnout and see everyone at the weigh-in. See you all in the fall!

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 9/1

    After Dan’s last report on Canandaigua I couldn’t resist taking a morning off with my oldest to target some silvers. Met Dan at the launch at 530am and strategized quick to check if the east or west side was marking bait. Thanks for the westside tip as I never fish there with any luck. I didn’t mark much on the east side so we zipped over to the water treatment plant on the west side and we marked a ton of bait all the way south to menteth point. we target just silvers at first and lost 2 right at the boat immediately at 50ft on the riggers use glow spoons. We then had to more releases that blanked. Then we had a big strike on the 10 color with a copper Uv custom spoon from reel rage. Saw it jump 300 feet back and worked hard to get him in the boat. We also got a few lakers in the upper column on spoons on 10 colors. about 9am we slowed down to 1.7 and dropped the riggers tight to the bottom at 120 and picked up a triple (2 on the rigger and one on 10 color) on lakers. Until 10am we had a steady flow of lakers with one being over 10lbs. Thanks Dan for all the tips it made for a fun morning!
  9. Targeting RT, solo, fished east side, heading south starting at the old boat house. Not many marks or bait. Crossed over the the west side near Menteth point, much better screen. Temperature break around 55 feet. Caught two RT and one LT, lost a couple that I suspect where RT. Saturday went out with my son again looking for RT. Headed straight for the west side, started at water treatment plant trolling g south. Got 4 RT and two LT. Not much size to any of the RT either day. Although my son reeled in this nice 12 pound 33” LT which he was super excited about.
  10. My buddies and I had plans to hit up lake O out of iBay to try some night bite action but again the forecast was wrong and the lake never died down. Instead we decided to try our luck on the north end of Canadaigua. I typically have no luck at night on the finger lakes so expectations were low but the beer was cold. Got lines in at 645pm right at the 100fow mark in the middle of the lake and followed that ridge all the way to the east side boating 2 lakers on watermelon spin n glos. Once the sun set behind the hills the green glo spin n glo got hot bringing in 3 more including this 12.56lb beauty that took almost 12min to get in the boat. (I will post the video on my YouTube at some point)

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 5/23

    Trolled south end, 6:00-11:00. 1 for 3 on bows. Landed 23”, lost big one by the boat, put on quite the show, leapt a couple feet up about 15 feet behind the boat, then broke the line after wrapping around a rigger cable, should have pulled it up. 2 of them came on 100 copper, 1 on 200 copper. Pink and watermelon spoons were the color, they wouldn’t touch all silver today. Picked up 1 LT on our deepest rigger set at 55ft. Great morning to be out there before the rain came in.

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 5/7

    Skipped work, solo trip, toured whole lake from north to south. Surface water temps: 43.6 north end 44.2 deep run 45.6 menteth point 46.4 bristol harbor 49.1 south end Took a quick look at each stop. Charted practically no fish in colder temps. At south end in warmer water charted lots up high in the water. Dropped lines there, kept them high, above lakers. Two small bows was all I could pick up. One on 100 copper, other one on rigger 20 feet down. Both on silver spoons. Beautiful morning to be on a quiet lake!

    Canandaigua Abandoned boat

    Found early this morning in front of Bristol harbor in middle. Towing over to docks at Bristol harbor. Cops on there way. Hope no one was in it.
  14. We launched out of Woodville at 5 am with plans of running north to whiskey point. A little late and calm water changed my mind at dock. Set up as soon as we hit 20fow with a top line, 3 color, 5 color, 100 steel, 200 copper, 300 copper, downrigger, and 2 braided steel twilley rods as soon as we hit 100fow. North troll up the east shore. 6lb. and 5lb. Lakers came on a spiny and Duke fly. ( Thanks Mike) 1lb.9oz rainbow came on cheater/slider yellow blue dot spoon on downrigger. 5lb. 8oz rainbow came on a real rage watermelon spoon (Thanks Scott) 3 color core. Figured I needed one more good laker to weigh. Pulled one twilley rod and put out a old fashioned rig rod dragging bottom with a 50 sutton as bottom spoon. Caught (4) 2-21/2 lb. lakers in 40 minutes. Changed 50 to an 88. Never caught another laker. Managed to finish 4th among the monster fish brought to the weigh in. Rookie mate Kasey in pics. Congratulations to John Wild on the win.
  15. Last Night I was on the fence with the rain and gusty wind forecast but I am glad I went! Right off the bat we caught a 8lb 7oz brown on the planers right off the drop off of the south end. We stayed there for another hour with no luck and switched to a deeper program and went up the east Side and marked a good amount of baitfish but no takers. We shuttled across the lake just south of Bristol harbor, headed south and put the cowbells with some homade spin n glos at 102 on the riggers and bumped the bottom and picked up a near 6lb 5oz Laker. About 15 min later another hit and as we got the fish to the boat I jerked the line with my hand to get it in the net and it jumped off. Yeah I am grounded.. aways great to catch fish on your own spin n glos. Blue, green and watermelon were the hottest.
  16. 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
  17. Does anyone know if the docks at the south end of Canandaigua lake in Woodville are still in?
  18. I accidently left my Frogtog waders and wading boots at the North boat launch at Canandaigua on Friday morning. I came back 2 hours later when I realized that I had left them and they were already gone. If anyone picked them up please let me know. Thanks

    Canandaigua Strange Trip

    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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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

    Canandaigua 9/26 Canandaigua

    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.
  23. 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.

    Canandaigua Woodville 9/12

    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.

    Canandaigua 7/18 woodville

    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!
