  1. I'll be taking the boat up..... when ..... well ...... not sure but I will be there one of these days....................
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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..... Well got some NICE fish but better half is not happy with who got what !!!!
  5. Seneca 8/19/2014 Back at it this morning with the better half………….. lines in the water at 8:41 am running same spoons as yesterday and depths…….1st fish hooked up and landed at 9:15 am double up but the 1st fish a laker was ready for the net so other fish was gone…by the time we got to….better half was happy with the nice chunky laker about 20†or so we put him back…. 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………………
  6. 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.
  7. I didn't want to get up so Erabbit had to wait till EYE was good and ready to go.......he loaded boat then drug me over to the truck and off we go....... I tell him three times ---Ruff----Ruff---Ruff---- that the water was just too Ruff for me but Oh no he knows better............we're heading down the lake a 9:32 am and at-least he don't have it wide open only going 20 or so.......he get where I guess he thinks there fish and get busy setting boat up...... he'll have to take over from here because I'm too short to see all his gizz-mo's........... had lines into the water tad after 9:49 am and fish on at 9:58 am 61' probe rigger small stinger spoon ( same one as last time out ) small sub legal landlock.......put that rod back down and checked other rod just to be safe I didn't have a dink on it....... 10:20am boat a 18" to 20" chunky landlock and put him back on the 61' rigger again.....10:35 am boat a laker on the 71' rigger FLT perch pattern spoon..then one more laker at 11:00 am ...11:20am 71' rigger smaller landlock than the first one and that was about it for the day back at the dock by 1ish....... put all fish back..........too hot !!!! and Kinger was ready for lunch !!!!!!

  17. So got up early and went to Severne. The plan was get there early motor down to Glenora and pull out when I reached Severne again. Left the house at 4:30 AM something executed the "plan" was back on the trailer at 8:45 AM, shot the **** with an older than me timer at the launch for awhile and home, coming through Watkins, by 10:30 3 nice lakers,22 1/4 " 3# 3 oz, 24" 4# 15 oz, and 25" 13 oz, 150 FOW, wire rods, mag Dipsey #2 setting, 280' back, my usual glo frog racer Spin Doctor/ Reel-Hooked Up fly( yes I have other Spin Doctor fly combos ) took the 2 larger of the 3 and a #00 Luhr Jensen hammered silver flasher with a chrome and glo Spin -n- Glo following it on my new Seth Green rig toy took the smaller one. Boat ran great, very peaceful morning on Seneca , I haven't fished a Finger Lake during the tourist season on a WEEKEND in years
  18. Time to get back out fished solo............ tad late but was in brown mode again......was at spot at 8 am..... set up out deep and time to mess with minn kota i pilot ( REAL men don't read directions ): anyway picked a bow up 55' down on rigger..... after a bit it was time to get directions out..... picked up one more bow same spoon same rigger same depth.....got the thing to work not sure what I did but the control was great could get in back still see depthfinder and X4 and steer with remote.... dropped 55' rigger to 61' and dropped probe rigger to 55' ..... started banging lakers picked up 4 at the depth and lost 2 other fish....brought the 61' back to 55' and probe to 45* picked up one more bow ran into lots of weeds and it was getting pretty hot so called it at 10ish..... see if I can get that thing to work again..... other than set up and when I ran into weeds I was working 65' to 118' bait has schooled up a lot since the last time out pods are huge then nothing for a while..... was getting hit with most every big bait pod , never worked back thru any of them......
  19. Hoot , King and I got out in good shape this am headed south and set started setting up by 6:30 am...... sun was still not peaking over the hill yet I had high hopes of getting into the browns...... screen was good , lots of marks , bait just could not find any takers so started pulling and changing spoons ........ was running two rigger then put the slidediver out pulling a spoon also......finally the 61' rigger goes...... I'm on it......good fish ...... just doesn't want to come up...... bring him/her in about 50' or so and the dreaded long-distance-release-to-fight-another-day-happens..... Oh well got the color they want I hope it's one I had FLT paint up for me that was HOT for browns last year ( one day )..... then we started getting into lots of weeds and could not work the "browntrout-water" so we moved out to around 220' - 240' and set back up.... I added a wire dipsy with BTI UV and sliver fly...... 61' rigger goes off again Hoots on it ( good he has NOT lost a fish in a long time ) good fight good fish BROWN !!!!! We box him......later the 210' wire rods goes I land a good laker box him......then again another laker put it back ...... one more time one more laker box him.....about 9:30am and still ruff so we called it a day and ran up to Ovid for gas......
  20. Up at 5:30 am made coffee , hear thunder , then rain and wind...... done more coffee !!!!
  21. Quick trip to WG this week. Went 5 for 7, all salmon and they were in the 25-35 below the surface range. Nicholas had a balst with this acrobatic 4.6lb fatty. She gave us a good show and provided lots of smiles. Fleas were out in force as well!
  22. Kinger , Hoot and I got out for a bit today been awhile. We went 1 for 4 all on wire rig 210' out UV BTI sliver fly.... one nice landlock with a lamprey scar..... clean side....
  23. I'm heading to Seneca Lake at the end of August for the first time. I'll be camping at Sampson State Park for a week. I am looking for any pointers or tips that anybody can provide me on fishing the lake, I guessing the north end. I do a lot of trolling in Lake Ontario for salmon rainbows and Lakers, as well as Lake Erie for walleye. I'd like to do some fishing for the same species. So looking for any helpful hints or areas that might be of help. I'm also getting into bass fishing, got all the new gear. So any help with that would be greatly appreciated. I guess locations if anybody's willing to give them up. I'm a catch and release fisherman. Thanks in advance. David
  24. Just couldn't get going too fast this am but finally hit the launch with Hoot and Kinger-boy pushing 10ish ...... motored over to west-side below Serverne set up and went south. Ended up just below Glenora weeds were the worst down there but we were in and out of them most of the trip...... started out with wire rod , flea-flicker on one rigger and 15# spoon rod on other ....fleas were more on the wire rod so pulled 15# spoon rod and put another fleafilcker rod down...... picked up one laker on wire rod 240' wire out UV BTI sliver fly ( deep six diver )........ picked up a good bow 47' down on X4 rigger and one small landlock lost two with a release and no one home also FLT alpha-alwife spoon ...... picked up 2 more small landlocks on other rigger on a SS DW alwife glow spoon...... got rained on two times but stayed fairly dry with top up..... speed at ball 2.7 to 2.9 ....... fished mainly from 90' to 120' FOW..... only trolled north on short time after we came back above Glenora to get away from weeds ...... then it got dark again wind changed some so I pulled every thing and came back in rain some on the way back then we got above it......
  25. Yesterday I finally decided to get my Seth Green/Thermocline rod in the water, BIG thumbs up to Mike Burt (Iron Duke) & Les (Sk8man) for ALL of their advice BOTH gave me their best secrets, which I promised not to divulge. Got my biggest laker to date, I'm learning more and more with each Seneca outing and am looking forward to learning more with this new rig. I also had 2 wire Dipsey rods out. Severne, heading South, 2-2.3 MPH, 165 FOW, 215', #2 setting on the mag Dipsey's, 100'+ on the "rig rod" using a 2# weight. Glow Green Dot and Glow Frog Racer Spin Doctors with matching Spin Glo bead combinations I tied up ( you thought I was going to say a "Reel-Hooked Up fly again huh ? ) rig rod 3 fish to the net, wire rod, 1 fish to the net and 2 "nobody home hits". I had a request for any fish over 20"'s from a friend 27"-5 Lb 14 Oz 26 1/2"- 7 Lb 3 Oz 22 1/4 "- 3 Lb 9 Oz 20 "- 2 Lb 14 Oz #1 & #2 were females full of eggs, ALL fish were GORGED FULL of freshly eaten sawbellies, #2 fish had 2 lamprey scars On the water at 5:30ish, back on the trailer by 8:30ish GREAT day to be on the water
