  1. I’ve just heard from 2 people they just got approved to run full time without dec permits.. anyone else hear about it getting approved?
  2. This came out in today's Fingerlakes Times and thought I would share. Always nice to read and learn about LOU Members. Here's to ya Steven!
  3. So, my new job is right on Seneca Lake, just South of Dresden, I am the Caretaker for a kids' summer camp there, and with Covid-19 going omg, the camp is offering families a chance to stay in one of our fully furnished staff cabins for a few days or weeks, as well as offering stays in the more "rustic" cabins for less money. It has been a tremendous success for the camp. I am a very avid fisherman, and I suggested to my boss that we could offer a list of good charter captains to those who stay at our camp this year. She loved the idea. Anyone here on LOU who is or knows top quality charter services, please PM me or e-mail me directly at [email protected] . I'd love to give some business back to the LOU community, since I have learned so much from you all over the past years. Of course, if you'd be willing to pick the customers up at our docks, I'm sure they could appreciate it as well. Thanks!!
  4. I would urge anyone interested in the health of Seneca lake to go to the website of Fingerlakes 1.com and read the articles by Peter Mantis regarding Greenlinge (sp) possibly being given approval to spew even more warm water into the lake. DEC, can you help?
  5. I got out Friday night for two or three hours and again Saturday afternoon for four hours for some jigging. Managed one Laker Friday night and one Laker Saturday afternoon. The one on Friday night was pretty chewed up from the lampreys. Saturday's fish was pretty clean. Both fish ran around 25 inches or so. Tough fishing---these aren't the good ol' days but at least the sunset was nice!
  6. Ugh. Fished from 6am to 6pm north of Sampson. Managed a 4lb Laker and lost my tail. Lots of good marks but just couldn't get them to go. Clean boat was pretty as the fog burned off. Waiting for the wind to die down before heading out. Good luck to all! Tail Marks Boat
  7. We all know we are ordered to stay home to control the virus. I heard the other day. Seneca and Yates county want no outsiders coming to their counties because these counties have no cases of the virus yet, they want to keep the virus out. it makes sense. have any body heard this also. I don't want to come in a pay a fine.

  9. Fished the shelf out in front of the marina down to the officer,s club in around 90ft of water,Had a total of 7 with some nice laker,s in the lot most came off of blades with spin glo and a few with straight copper and a great lakes #4 fluger copy,All the fish went back with the exception of two.Nice to see the lake coming back.
  10. Wanted to go deep out of Hughes but wind report turned us off so Liney and I decided to try Seneca, haven't been there since Memorial day. We launched out of Sampson, hey they resurfaced the road into the park down to the circle, too bad they didn't keep going. Marina is beautiful and we where only trailer parked on lower parking. We decided to go start south of Long point and came north to Kashong. We didn't mark many fish at first but tons of bait. Once we got into the area off Angus we had a great screen of bait & fish from 20 to 50 feet down. We started with a bullhead on top leader in 200 FOW which hit a white evil eye, eventually we got a 3# range rainbow on a black evil eye. That was it for us, nice day, fleas where so so, only saw one other boat trolling and we headed home
  11. Got out around 730am Tuesday and fished the west side. Didn't mark much bait/arcs in shallow so worked out deeper and across towards east side, started marking more fish and got bites off the deeper rigger. Went 3/4 all salmon. 17incher went in the cooler, 2 dinks went back and a long distance release on another legal size silver. All fish off rigger at 55ft on green ladderback spoon behind vertical green blades... Made it out earlier today and it made a big difference. On the water before 6am and was headed to the area I found fish yesterday but marked some nice bait balls and arcs right out in front of my lift so decided to setup and trolled south (east side), kept marking fish in 20-60ft with bait but no releases... made a big turn to troll back north and got my first salmon off a steely dan stinger down 30ft. Trolling north through the same area and the bite was on. Ended up with 12 releases and boated 8. All legal fish from 15-21". Of course the best fish came off after a couple awesome leaps, looked to be a 4-5lbr and I was bummed for sure. But I had my limit on salmon and was happy with a nice 2 hrs of fishing. Bite seemed to shut off by 830. Orange seemed to be the color today and most fish came from the rigger at 30ft and from a cheater at approx 24ft on the deeper rigger. One off of a fly/dodger combo with 6 colors of leadcore. No fleas, few weeds, surface temp 72....
  12. Heading to a rental on Seneca for a week's vacation. I'll post regular updates on any action or lack thereof. Tight lines to all
  13. I went fishing out of samsen this morning and i would like to say the sessler company did a great job on fixing the marina,everything is looking good,also would like to add i caught 5 fish two on gambler rig,s and the rest on a great lakes 4 spoon straight copper,with 4 to be returned to the l ake and one kept for dinner.The fish came between 80and 90ft of water.
  14. Had a great morning.. 10 lakers and a rainbow.. left the dock about 530am this morning put 4 colors of leadcore out with the electric muffin color reelrage mag on took the big rainbow.. rest we’re Sutton and gambler rigs 120-130ft 60-80ft down took a bunch of lakers.. only a few off bottom.. rainbow was 28 inches just a hair under 8lbs
  15. Sorry for the double post. itchy mouse finger
  16. Launched out of Severne around 7:30 a.m and fished until 3 p.m.. We went 4 for 5 on lakers. Biggest fish was 5.5 lbs. Most were taken on a wire dipsy #2 setting with flasher and white fly combo set back 200'. Picked up a small landlocked salmon about 20" down over 170 FOW. Said hello and tossed him back. Pretty slow but compared to how I usually do on Seneca, I'll take it! On another note - I lost some gear and need to re-stock, Does anyone know of any local businesses (not big box stores) that carry down rigger releases, dipsy divers, cannon balls etc? I want to keep my $$ local but haven't been able to find anyone who has this stuff
  17. Had trip today Guy wanted to go for silvers so we took the long haul from Roy’s to Long point and trolled south, 200-130fow trolled 20-60ft down with spoons, caught 6 dink salmon and 7 lakers.. got into the lakers about halfway down toward long point and showboat caught a short fat laker stuffed with 3 big saw bellies, no browns but steady action, a handful of lakers around 6-7lbs cooler temps closer to the surface down there compared to north end

  19. Had some action on Seneca last night, tried out a handful of reel rage spoons ,630-8pm had 4 salmon on landed 3 , 2 rainbow one decent size probably 3lbs and 2 smaller lakers 80ft down mostly 110-130fow 30-40 down. surface was 71 degrees.. purple alewife took most, Green UV NBK took the 2 lakers down 80ft.. the smaller reelrage spoons seems to be the ticket their smaller and lighter then stingers with paint that holds up way better 2.2-2.4 mph
  20. Got out for the first time on the lake yesterday. Spent the afternoon before cleaning up the cottage and getting the boat ready for the year. My boat dock is in need of serious repair but I cobbled together some temp repairs. Good news was the boat ran great and weather mostly cooperated. Bad news was fishing was pretty slow. Started out deep but wasn't seeing much for bait so worked my way in closer. Started marking bait balls in less than 60 FOW with a few arcs, hooked up with a nice leaping salmon on a yozuri stick off 2 colors of lead just inside debris line from a tributary. Fish ripped the inline board backwards and then nothing, thought he was off but he was running at the boat. He surfaced in the prop wash leaping behind by dr cable and then wrapped up and self released on the cable but politely left the lure, fish looked to be 3-4lbs. Boated one salmon about 16" with a lamprey near another point. He came off a jointed rapala on the surface off an inline board in about 30fow. Slow day but I didn't get skunked and no major issues so I'll take it. Did notice lots of alewives in the shallows later that day. Water temps were 53-58. On my way home I stopped and fly fished a local stream which was a lot more productive, got about 1/2 dozen cookie cutter stockie browns that were surface feeding on a variety of bugs including some big cahills and march browns. Got chased off by thunder/lightening...
  21. Fished hard a good 10 hrs . If releases count I had three.

  23. Anyone had any luck getting a dock reserved at Seneca lake state park? Ive called many times over the last month only to be put on hold or told they will call me back. Getting close to memorial weekend and no dock reserved. No call back..... Maybe they are free this year.
  24. After seeing fisherdudes outstanding trout pictures I realize how far behind I am getting things ready this year.Weatherman says Its supposed to snow this weekend .No fishing. After next weekend its 22 days till NLT.and 15days days till Barney derby. That leaves one weekend for a shakedown cruse. I think to be fair Fisherdude should tie one hand behind his back.
  25. Went out of Watkins Glen and we got on the lake around 10 a.m., hoping the south wind wasn't going to be as bad as it was. One mile out the lake was full of sheep so i went on a joy ride and practiced my seamanship for a while on the white caps and after a few hours the wind finally settled down enough to drag a few lines close to shore. Went 1 for 3 on landlocked salmon. All small fish, nothing picture worthy.. Nice to have a day off and get out on the water after a long winter.
