  1. Had a few hours to kill this morning, so decided to pass-up Hemlock for the south end of Canandaigua. Got to the drop -off and was marking good sized bait balls and hooks from 45-55 FOW, so I set-up with the 7 color lead pulling a Rapala x-rap and the down rigger with a gold Sutton # 22 flutter soon with a custom bend on the tail end. The custom bend wasn't planned or engineered - it actually got created when the spoon got caught up in the fold-up rudder on the kayak - but it's proven itself to be pretty effective. Followed the drop off east-west weaving from 40-90 FOW and hit a nice 23" bow on the 2nd pass. Quick picture then released. Pulled up the lead core, and switched to a torpedo diver pulling a 4" silver steak (?) painted blue & purple to help out with the turns and make depth adjustments easier. A few more passes, then got another bow on the Sutton - this one shorter @ 19 " - again released to fight another day. Had a little problem reeling that one in, because I was using 12 lb mono and the fleas got so bad at the rod tip that the double-uni knot wouldn't pull through the last eyelet. As I was heading in, ended up getting a small 15" laker on the painted spoon, and this time had to deal with a big wad of weeds I picked up with the line. Overall, a nice relaxing morning - haven't been on Canandaigua with the yak all summer, so it was nice to out there. Off the lake by 11 AM, so missed most of the recreational boats. but did see a few others out mostly still fishing / jigging along the drop off. Want to try still fishing live bait, but It's been a long time since I've fished with saw bellies - If anyone has any pointers or thoughts on how to keep them fresh & alive while on a kayak, I'd appreciate any info. https://youtu.be/OCTwSzgplpw https://youtu.be/ZLu2Ioympig https://youtu.be/UxQfQAaQ-SQ

  6. Canandaigua 9/10 with some great kids Got a little bit of a late start due to the road being closed for a race. Started fishing just before 8. Water was much clearer as compared to last weekend. Only had two rods out and we lost the first one. Pretty steady fishing right to the end at noon with a total of 4 bows and 12 lakers. The 2 biggest bows we got right at the end and are not in the pics. The biggest one took a gambler rig on a turn off the rigger 75ft over 150. Ten color produced well as did the wires and rigs. Very nice day with the wind gradually picking up. Bait was stacked up North and the fish were on them. Fleas were non existent today.
  7. Canandaigua 8/25 Haven't been out in a long time so I took the day off. Headed out at 6:30 and lines in around 7. First rainbow at 7:30 next around 9. Both on gamblers on dipsy and jet divers out 230 over 200. First around 4 pounds next seemed around 7? No scale on board

    Canandaigua Canandaigua 8/12

    Canandaigua 8/12 Decided to do Canandaigua with the new boat this morning. I wanted to run it to work out any bugs and get familiar with it before tackling the O. I haven't seen a can report in a while so here goes. The fishing was... pretty bad. Tried everything. Different color spoons. Spoon and flashers. Flasher and flies. Riggers at 40 to 90 and 100 on the bottom. Dipseys. Lead core. All we could manage was to fire one rigger rod at 80 with nobody home after a couple very small kicks. The bass boat guys were in rare form. You'd expect courtesy from other fisherman but nahh. They'd rather pass within spitting distance doing 55... Just wish I had something I didn't care about enough to throw their way. On the plus side the boat ran great. Won't be screwing with the can anytime soon.
  9. Canandaguia lake conditions Anyone have any idea what lake looks like and launch conditions are like as there's a flta tourney this Sunday and would be nice to know what to expect. Thanks in advance
  10. April 29th Seager Marine Perch Tournament April 29th Perch Tournament The weather cooperated for most of the day. Everyone seemed to be happy to be out on Canandaigua fishing. The four wining teams are pictured here. All signup money was given back to the top four teams along with bragging plaques for each team member. Pizza & beverages were on us. More tournament to come. Let's see how the season shapes up. Congratulation to all the winners. 1st - Hoefen Team 2nd - Harrington Team 3rd - Batta Bing Team 4th - Rogers Team
  11. Canandaigua North End Launch How is the state launch at the north end? Any docks in yet? Water level? I'm thinking of taking Friday off and getting the boat out for the first time this year.
  12. Canandaigua Perch Tournaments Save the Dates! - Seager Marine will be holding 2 Spring Perch Tournaments this year on Canandaigua Lake. The first will be on April 1st and the second will be on April 29th. These will be team tournaments (1 to 3 person). Entry fee will be $40/team. Watch our website for details and registration forms or stop in the marina Tuesday through Saturday. Let's hope this weather breaks after the usual late winter snow storm!
  13. Anyone know if anything is going on at Onanda Park on Canandaigua? Hi guys! It's looking like it will be a nice weekend, and I'm wondering if there's any action down at Onanda Park on Canandaigua. No boat or kayaks for us yet this season, but we were thinking of doing some shore fishing this weekend from their pier that gets in to some fairly deep water. We're hoping to get lucky and maybe hit some trout in shallow and if not maybe just some perch. Any thoughts or ideas? Thank you for your help!
  14. Can anyone give a report on the state launches at Canandaigua and Seneca lakes? I see that the water level is way down and I am concerned about being able to launch and load without 1 getting the trailer backed in over the cement ramp and 2 the outlet depth to get to the lake. Thanks
  15. I'm going to try one last time this year for rainbows at canandaigua and was looking for pointers, I've tried everything I can think of and am stumped. I launch out of woodville

    Canandaigua FLTA 5/1

    Congratulations to all at Canadaigua that caught fish. Brent C. had a phenomenal bag with a big 6-11 bow and the lunker laker that tipped the scales at just over 11lbs. Josh B. and Mike B. rounded out the top three. Great fishing guys! We started out on the south end marking a nice pod of bait in 75' of water. besides that the screen was blank in shallow and out deep. Decided to try the south end a bit longer and even the chute but only marked a few fish deep. I post this because this is our first skunk at a FLTA event, sometimes you are the windshield sometimes you are the bug, this weekend we were the bug! Jim T had a beauty of a laker that looked like 15lb fish but tipped the scales at 10-14, beauty Jim! Lots of beautiful bows weighed in and a nice brown or two. Keuka next!
  17. Seager Marine will be holding 2 Spring Perch Tournaments this year on Canandaigua Lake. The first will be on April 2nd and the second will be on April 30th. These will be team tournaments (1 to 3 person). Entry fee will be $40/team. Watch our website for details and registration forms. Let's hope this weather continues and the perch fishing is as good as it was last Fall!!
  18. May be interested in docking my 15' aluminum boat in Woodville this year so I can just jump in and go. Anyone know how much docking for the year costs at Smith Boys? I have called and e-mailed but no response yet. Thanks!
  19. Started a little later yesterday than normal with the full moon coming. Trolled for the first part of the trip with modest results at best. Couple Lakers up to 7lbs as well as a couple bows and one small mouth. Switched over to laker jigging and that stayed relatively slow too. Started in 85 fow and not long after one of the guys sets the hook into a 9" perch right on the bottom. I moved us into 70 fow and threw a jig off the bow and about ten feet from the boat on the retrieve I got the strike. Line instantly went out and to the side. Knew it wasn't a laker. Didn't take long to break the water. Fish took several spectacular leaps and several runs. After many attempts to net the fish we finally got her. Dumped her back in and she took right off.
  20. I wanted to give the Lake another GO....due to the fact my last 3 trips were skunked out and it took too long to get the Fleas off my equipment. Off to the SE side and throw in the Seth Greens ( yes,,some of us Still fish that way!) and had a screen full of bait and fish .100 FOW on the edge to 120...screen gets MT once I venture towards the middle of the Lake...The fish do not seem to suspend like they used to,,,they seem more into structure and such. Before the sun got over the East hill I had a 24" laker up to where I had picked up the net,..he shook his head and did that crazy spin move and the spoon whizzed past my ear! oopps! Not a great way to start but hey,,,,I just started! I went on up the East side and over to the West side by Cooks and Long Pt..I pulled a nice laker off the structure 110 FOW...There were a bunch on the drop,...He made the net..! I made a wide swing back through ,,no hits,..and kept trolling south as the wind was kicking up, 20 min later I hit another laker,,same size,...I would have thrown it back but he was bleeding all over and did not look like he would make it.So,..2 in the box off the deep line. The rainbow line lay silent for the duration,,,surface temp 68 . Once I came in,,the kid doing boat check was nice enough to take a pic for me...and thus ends the season as Archery is closing in.. Beautiful morning on the lake,,,few boats out...good green water,,,weeds not bad but still had light fleas all over,..but manageable.Tight Lines to all!
  21. Starting at 745-sh,on the East side,..the duck weed and floating grasses/weeds made me divert to the west side for the NB troll. 68 surface temp...decent amount of marks right on bottom 100-125' FOW No hitters as I had the big boy sinker bumping right thru'em. Up past Cooks point I stayed 95-100 on the drop-offs and marked alot of bottom huggers in groups and few few 45-50 suspended fish...only saw a small group of bait 25 fow off Cooks. No strikes,..side pole and Float with 5 deep ..4 on top. Pulling the heavy line in first,..it felt like I had a towel hanging of a leader. Once I had most of the topline in,..125'..here was the problem...Tons of fleas...! Talk about a task to clear this junk off tiny Seven strand wire ( like 10 lb mono) The Dacron on the float,,,not as bad,,but still a pain,... 2nd trip of the year,..no Bite.!!....Nice view of Bear hill at Vine Valley,..but that's all! Maybe sit this one out till August,..they may thin out by then,..hopefully!! RK By the way,,the 1st mile was a bit murky/muddy from all the stinkin Rain...it cleared up to green water past Cooks Pt.
  22. On 7/07 I was out with a grandfather and grandson on a half day trip. We were crossing the lake about 1/3 of the way down when I see a sailboat coming across my stern. He and I were about the only two boats within miles of each other. He proceeded to turn after crossing over the top of my lines and followd directly behind me. As he picked up speed he began to overtake me on the starboard side in-between myself and the west shore heading south. We hit some weeds with the boards on the port side and as I'm watching them the sailboater takes a sharp left turn right in front of me! Luckily I caught him out of the corner of my eye. I had to throw the kicker into hard reverse and he may have missed be by an inch if i'm lucky. As he coasts in front of me and I feel were clear I ask him from maybe four feet away "what the heck are you doing"? He looks over at me and responds.. "Oh sorry thought I had more room" very casually. If there wasn't an 11yr old on board I'm sure it would have been much more heated. I can't help but think that he did this on purpose the more I think about it. Anyway he was is a solid blue hull maybe 18-20 sailboat. I'm just curious if anyone else has ever had a run in with this boat or is he really just that stupid!
  23. Got out for a few hours today. Fished north end, east side from drop off to Pelican and stayed between 80' and 100' contours. Found 1 8.5# rainbow down 68' over 100 fow. Only used riggers and had no problem with weeds or fleas. Marked several bait pods down about 50'. Traffic picked up by noon so I quit.
  24. Good day early, fairly light boat traffic and jiiged Lakers for a couple hours. Got fish of all sizes from 16" up to the low 30's. Picked up a couple guys at 2:30 and went back to jigging without much succes so decided to troll at about 4:00 and had pretty steady action over the next two hours with a mix of Bows and Lakers. Bows all came on small sticks and lakers were a spoon bite down 50-60ft. Danny Wegman was drifting in his Gucci boat right on my contour line so we cut in shallower and hit a spectacular air bound bow right of his stearn. The first two jumps really got their attention followed by a standing ovation when the bow hit the net. Water clarity is still poor and debris was not easy to fish through. Mostly small sticks and weeds but there was some bigger branches as well.
  25. Got out for a couple hours each day, late afternoon. Fish weren't biting, but the good news is that the fleas and grass were not bad. Fleas that I did get were the lighter colored variety that could be flicked easily. I marked pretty good with bait and fish, mostly at the 60 foot depth over 60 to 100 fow. Fished from the pump house down to Tichenor and a little farther south, mostly west side. Good marks right off the point at Tichenor. Not sure what the approaching cold front and winds will do for the weekend fishing. Hopefully things will settle down for the FLTA group on Sunday. Good luck to all! Reminder - the Seager Marine Tournament on Saturday (10/4) has been canceled.
