  1. Figured it was time to give it ago this morning , went down 715 or so fished till 10ish. Getting out of lift and back in went very good. I thought I had an idea where the browns should be so I set-up a two rigger spoon program. Ended up with 5 small bows small 12" and smaller 8". One small brown 15.5" and a 21" #4 landlock........ I was very happy to see these small fish the first I've caught in three years....one of the bows could have been a landlock but I like to get them back in the water fast as I can when they are that size.The board is just there for size didn't run it.
  2. After trying (unsuccessfully) to get into sliver fish on Seneca over the past few summers, I decided to bite the bullet and book a last minute charter with Nick on Reel Stories. My time on the water is limited to about 3 weekends a year, so I wanted to accelerate my learning with someone who fishes the lake weekly. I've exchanged pm's with Nick over the years, and while he's been extremely gracious with his time and advice, nothing can replace actual time on the water. My father and I met Nick at Sampson around 5:15 and we were on the water by 5:30. Over the course of the next 4 hours, I probably asked 50-60 questions on how and why he does what he does, all of which he was happy to answer... As a group, we boated 10-12 fish and dropped a handful more, but more important to me was what I learned. For any others like me, who don't have the time to conduct your own due diligence, I highly recommend a trip with Nick or one of the other experienced charters. There's been a lot of talk about Seneca's decline, and while some of it is probably justified, we marked a ton of fish and bait, and had what I consider to be a successful morning. I learned A LOT and can't wait to put the lessons into action. Unfortunately, I'm back in NJ and not sure when I'll get another crack at Seneca! -Brad
  3. Lakes setting up for the summer holes. Thermo is moving a round a bit, slight changes in areas anywhere from 5-20 foot difference in overall depth change. Riggers parked 91 and 104 over 90-120 fow producing fish steadily. Pulling tc-spinglow and gambler rigs in various colors. Spoons producing Lakers in the depth range of 50-75. Higher spoons fished in or near t-cline are producing the silvers. Past few trips on seneca have produced some quality bows. Also note, we have managed a few Atlantic salmon I'm the 8-9" range. Have the DEC finally stocked some little guys? Or did the spring opening of the canal system offer a gateway for fiesty bored Atlantic's to venture to seneca from cayuga? Orrr, do we maybe have a case of some natural reproduction going on? I prefer the later on possibility. Stinger and DW spoons seem to be working best for bows, Lakers are enjoying the FLX spoons a bit deeper in green and I black colors. If running probe, based on my x4 numbers, best ball speed has been 2.3 to 2.8. with that 2.6-2.8 being best. Some fish have been taken well over 3.0 ball speed. Trolls producing all directions with north troll being better than most. Zig zag ALOT, sudden sharper turns, not gradual. It makes a DIFFERENCE. I may look like I don't know what I'm doing, chances are I don't, but do it. Mag divers #2 setting, long leads, out 210 and 225 producing, spin drs only, no echip bites since derby. I know the cayuga lake reports are definitely keeping guys from fishing seneca, don't let the slow reports stop ya from coming over, they are there and active. Experiment and play, that's what makes us better and more satisfied to catch. Upcoming weeks will be time to find Mr brown town. Nick Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  13. This will be the first year a friend and myself will be fishing the NLTD. What can I expect? My friend has dock access near Starkey Point so i'm thinking that I will put the boat in the day before and tie up to the dock instead of messing around at a launch the morning of the tournament. Thanks, Jim
