Got a hit on wire diver out 160 sd with glemm fly no hook up..... picked a 18" bow alittle later 62' down flt chikenfeed spoon.....had two hit and misses also and thats about it.....went up too long point and trolled back to east side , just below boyscout camp..... lots of weeds.... fleas are out in force both sides. ..
  3. Good morning. Not an expert here. Just love to fish. I am posting to contribute as I have taken info from this website. Hopefully someone can learn from my successes and/or failures. As always, I gladly welcome positive reinforcement and/or constructive criticism to improve my angling. Date: 7/23/15 Plan: Got a last minute call from my friend from Buffalo who was in area. We made last minute plans to fish. I was originally going to meet him at Severne as I have been having some success on that area north in the past couple weeks. Due to late start I suggested we meet in Watkins. Should have stuck to my original plan. Lake: Seneca Launch: Watkins Area fished: west side, center of lake and east side Crew: Friend from Buffalo and his 12 year son Time: Started out at 5pm-845pm Direction headed: set up near first point on east side and trolled north toward Peach orchard point. Pulled lines and cruised further north a little bit. Set up lines and trolled north then crossed lake. Trolled north on west side then turned around and trolled south for a time until dark. Depth of water fished over: 80ft to 500ft Wind: out of north Surface temp: 70 Water Down temp: This is second time I used my Fishhawk TD temp probe. 65deg-30Ft, 58deg-40Ft, 51deg-50Ft, 48deg-60Ft, 46deg-70Ft. I assume this is accurate. Can someone confirm if these are temps they have been seeing? Setup: Rod 1 – 3 color core with small michigan stinger on inline planer board Rod 2 – 5 color core with small michigan stinger on inline planer board Rod 3 – wireline, #1 dipsy out 150 ft on 2.5 setting using michigan stinger orange spoon Rod 4 – wireline, #1 dipsy out 120 ft on 0 setting using mountain dew paddle and fly Rod 5 – wireline, #1 dipsy out 120 ft on 2.5 setting using michigan stinger watermelon spoon Rod 6 – wireline, #1 dipsy out 140 ft on 0 using NK28 mountain dew spoon Results: Nothing happening. Didn’t really mark anything good on fish finder screen except for 2 small areas in shallow water. Fleas and weeds were very bad all over. Got to use for the second time my fishhawk td and new rod holders from Cisco fishing systems. Nice night to be out. Wish we would have caught at least one fish for my friend’s son. Question of the day: Is it true that fishing in south end is tougher until later in the summer? When does fishing in south end really pick up? I expect some biased answers as I know there is a friendly battle between north enders and south enders!!! Thanks and stay safe. Dave
  4. thinking of hitting seneca in the morning and was going to launch at severne. any details on cost to launch and details of area or depth range to fish or hot spoons on seneca would be greatly appreciated. have dug into some recent reports so i see white ff is hot unfortunatly i have had bad luck losing multiple flashers this year and that color is on the bottom or cayuga lake. thanks in advance

  9. I'll be taking the boat up..... when ..... well ...... not sure but I will be there one of these days....................
  10. I have a cottage rented in Dundee just wondering if anyone knows if there is a launch anywhere near that area or is Watkins the closest trying to avoid a 12mile run, going to be there with two young boys I know there capable but closer the better. Thank you for any help.
  11. So I launched out of Sampson @ 6:00 AM, fog bank stayed with me for most of my trip, this was my "shake down" cruise for the first trip out, electronics failed, found a loose ground, fixed before launching, found fish, bait, and line hugging tree debris EVERYWHERE, pollen, flowers, leaves, and floating Winter kill lake weeds, fish were most congregated under the thickest seam of this stuff, couldn't get anything to hit any of my arsenal I had aboard, didn't care was a beautiful day & I needed it smile emoticontrolled almost to Geneva. Finally turned to head in and decided to hit deep water, hit that 130-135' slot and marked spotty bottom fish, finally found 1 hungry laker, right in front of the marina, caught it on a fly I tied myself, green glow/UV mylar, glow beads behind a glow/green dot Spin Doctor, back on the trailer @ 11:30 AM with a nice sunburn on my face and head smile emoticon
  12. Put lines in at 8:56 am ……………… worked 70’ to 90’ most of the time but did pick up two smasher on the turns a jumper that came off quick ( BIG fish ) and a hard puller that got in the wire rod and cut off… out over 200 to 250' …………. Went 4 for 12 had three reeeeeeellllllll lite bites in that mix……. One laker on wire that I lost 160’ out UV BTI sliver fly….. riggers were the best bite today probe down 52’ running 2.4 to 2.6 64* to 66* at the ball ……….. other rigger was 59’ …………weeds were not too bad but fleas were a pain on the wire rod….. rigger rods still have flea-flicker line on…. got them all back in the water to fight another day !!!!! Used the live - well in the new boat worked great !!!!! What we did stick and landed were dandy's !!!!! FLT spoons , glow froggy frog ( I think theres a bull in there some where ) the other hot spoon was a glow evil gobby glow that I Dr. up the glow cup with scale tape cutting back on how bright the glow is and adds some flash in the sun............. Boss is up... 7# Laker… I'm up..... 8.5# Laker… Boss is up..... 18†male brown…. I'm up.... 9.75 # female brown… Fleas and weeds on the probe rigger.....

She said the one that got off was my turn…..I said no problem honey ……. Next one on at 9:20 am boated a 17†salmon on the same spoon as the laker 58’ down FLT BFFG … she was happy with that one jumping out of the water a few time so everything is going good so far…... then 10:34 am hook up one the 52’ probe rigger she tell me to take it , I do and it’s a heavy fish….. I tell her that it’s a good one take the rod…… nope she said your turn…… long battle fish runs the boat then pulls a lot of line back out and runs alongside of the boat with the other rigger in the water….reach over and pull that rod out and put it in another rod holder making room to net fish… … she nets for me but to heavy for her to bring in so we get it together ………… land a 12#12oz male brown….. on the evil glow goby with scale tape on cup….. at 11:00 am boat on trailer and heading back to camp to get info to mount fish….ended up taking it to “ Hancock’s Custom Taxidermy “……… now I’m in bigger trouble than I was yesterday…… I just can’t win………………
  14. Today I decided to go try some new lures and colors I had made up last week. Been itching to go, but too busy. So after it rained a while, I decided to hitch the boat and go solo. When I arrived at the launch the DEC was sorting their gill nets they had just pulled. The DEC marine navigation team also showed up as I was launching my boat. I had some pretty interesting conversation with both groups. Glad I decided to go today. Here are some pics of the fish they caught.
