  1. I've got a FLTA Captains Challenge Tournament this weekend on Seneca. Any sign of the nasty FLEA'S? Wanted to do a pre-fish. Just running out of time. I know the flees pop up in certain areas while other areas will be clear. I also heard possible floating weed pods. Any info on that?
  2. http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/769227.pdf This is pretty interesting. Anyone wondering what occurs in the lake with regard to temperature and current should have a look at this info. Some of it is too technical to understand, but the charts and graphs give a lot of info. Jason
  3. Today is the start of a 3-4 day stay on the lake field test. This am we launched about 6 am. My dad showed up with no coat and shorts. (it was pretty chilly) At the dock he decided he wanted to go home! Only problem is, my son is his ride back to Elmira. So i'm either solo, or my son runs back to my house for pants and jackets. Call my girlfriend, she packs a "care package" for my dad and son, send my son for the trip, and by 7 am were fishing. 2 nice landlocks right off the bat and then it just quits. 2 hrs later a couple more landlocks. the biggest was 6.1 lbs. Oddly enough, I have some all white lures I wanted to try. I put one out today, a rattling version of the KW, all white. All our fish came on that lure today. Nap time for now, back in the water around 6pm. (lure I was hoping to be hot, not so hot!) Maybe tonight. I will try to keep this post up to date, when I can. Jason
  4. Trolled around severne today good temps and screen 45-50 ft caught 10 Lakers 4 land locks 1 rainbow all off spoons ran 2 flashers all morning couldn't get one to fire all morning 10 colors off board took most fish today 2.2 down speed north troll over 125 ft .
  5. 6-22 , got boat squared away from the last few times out , and put cover on in case of rain...... plan at that time was to get out as many times as I could to torment IronDuke while he had to work....so 6-23 wind just a ripping it did lay down some later in the day but I didn't go out..... 6-24 wind and some rain ...... 6-25 wind laid down nice BUT rain and heavy fog could not even see lake from camp... 6-26 coffee is made looks OK out there time to uncover boat and head down !!!!
  6. Last night I fished Seneca with my girlfriend. We had one rainbow that had a deformed spine. Does anyone remember the days when rainbows had whirling disease? Has anyone else seen rainbows with deformed spines? This is the first one I have seen in years. I don't know if this fish had whirling disease, but it looked like what I remember as whirling disease. Just wondered if anyone else has seen this. Jason
  7. Carol , Kinger and I got out today for a little fishing and a boat ride. Hit the water about 11:15 am and pulled lines at 12:50 or so...... went 3 for 4 , boated a brown , 1 landlocks and a 2# perch ( 14.5" )..... bullfogy-frog and chicken feed ( now it's a perch spoon also ) ..... lost a hi-flying landlock
  8. Ice in cooler , coffee ready , Kingers ready , just need to uncover boat and give Hoot a shout and off to the lake.............
  9. Hoot , Kinger and I fished with Andy today , he put us on the fish we ended up with a double grands slam + a few..... all on spoons from top 5' , 15' , 5 color core , 2oz tropedo ..... and few I forgot ...... we kept 2 of Andy browns , 2 landlocks a rainbow and a laker I just ate half of for dinner.Mmmmmmmm !!!!!!
  10. Here's a refreshing bit of news from the DEC: You are subscribed to receive updates from DEC. Links to receive help or to change your preferences are provided below. Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page. Hello, The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation has issued the following press release: DEC to Begin Sea Lamprey Control on Seneca Lake Tributaries on June 9 Treatments Will Enhance Lake Trout and Salmon Populations and Sizes A program to combat parasitic sea lamprey will begin the week of June 9th on Seneca Lake tributaries in Chemung, Schuyler and Yates counties, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Regional Director Paul D'Amato announced today. Efforts to control sea lampreys can reduce mortality rates for game fish that sea lamprey target, especially lake trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, and landlocked salmon, which are among the more popular fish for Seneca Lake anglers. Reducing the number of sea lampreys will also lead to fewer unsightly scars and wounds on sportfish. Typically, immature sea lampreys live in streams for three to four years before they become parasitic, descending into the lake to prey on other fish, like trout and salmon. Under the sea lamprey control program, a lampricide called TFM (3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol) will be applied to the streams in a continuous manner over a period of approximately 12 hours to kill the immature, larval form of sea lamprey. TFM is a selective pesticide developed in the 1950s that has been used extensively to control sea lamprey in the Great Lakes. This lampricide has been applied to Seneca Lake tributaries since 1982. Dosage levels of TFM that are lethal to larval sea lampreys can be harmlessly processed by most other aquatic organisms. Following an environmental impact statement (EIS) and public hearing prior to the start of the sea lamprey control program, DEC concluded that the program offers an effective and immediate measure for protecting the native lake trout populations in Seneca Lake. DEC further concluded that the project will not have any significant impacts to the environment or non target organisms exposed to the lampricide; however, some minor fish and aquatic invertebrate mortality may occur. The stream treatments do not pose any human health threats, but a precautionary measure, the State Health Department has advised people not to consume stream water from the treated tributaries and avoid fishing, swimming, livestock watering or irrigation in the treatment zone during and immediately following applications. Precautionary signs will be posted along the treated streams. On June 9th, weather permitting, DEC will begin to treat waters inhabited by juvenile sea lampreys in Catharine Creek and tributaries from the Chemung/Schuyler County line to Montour Falls. If weather conditions are not suitable, treatment may be postponed till later in the week or the following week.

  13. Day break found me at Severne on a beautiful calm Seneca Lake. Immediately set-up South in 137 FOW, wire rod on a black mag Dipsy, #1.5 setting, 350' back, Glo Frog Racer Spin Doctor, with of course a Reel-Hooked-Up fly, braid rod, black mag Dipsy, #2 setting, 400' back, Glo Frog Racer Spin Doctor, and a matching Spin-N-Glo. Went 3 for 5 fish, with 2 nice releases on the surface ALLLLLLLLLL the way back, nice acrobatics, 2.3-2.5 GPS speed, 42F surface temp. Brought home 1 salmon, and 1 laker. Back on the trailer and heading for home at 10:00 AM GREAT day to be out there AND How was your day ERabbit ?
  14. Hello, Posting for a co worker who was at Seneca (Sampson) last week and after pulling his boat out he went to the upper parking lot to secure the boat. While doing this put some equipment on the ground and never put it back in when he pulled out. I told him would reach out and see if by chance someone who found it was on here. He is from Sodus so was not very close by the time it was discovered what had occurred. Thanks and look forward to seeing everyone at Sampson soon. David Stalker 315-597-6961
  15. Camp closes this weekend so I'm on my last trips over the next few days...................today is out wind blowing like crazy right now and rain has just started coming down...........
  16. I had two hours to burn on Monday so I decided to get the boat wet for a quick run. This salmon was 5.75 Lbs and fought like a big brown. He went deep and towards the middle of the lake. Not the usual acrobatics that a salmon would display but I'd be a little sluggish too if I was swimming in 38 degree water. Dinner is served!
  17. Launched late Saturday around 12:40. My wife gets the award for being a trooper and going with me. Figured we would do a six rod set with the idea in mind that we would stick to a high speed troll (2.9 to 3.5 sog) for salmon browns and maybe a bow.... Well went 1 for 3 with this one nice brown hitting a FLT alpha alewife on ten color lead core off an inline. Water was 41.5 degrees and the sun was out making for a relaxing beatuiful afternoon on Seneca. Nice meeting you Sutton 44 like your LUND, pretty boat. Happy New Year All!!!!
  18. I've been off the water for over a month and was looking for some insight on how this lake is treating the jiggers lately. Any info appreciated. Thinking of launching out of Sampson. Thanks!
  19. Getting ready now will be on the water in 30 to 45 minutes.........
  20. Slept in today with the big motor issue yesterday....... hooked the hose up to it fire her up ran good............. saw Hoot pull into camp so I went up to his trailer and chatted a bit....asked him if he wanted to make a run down the lake to a spot I've been iching to get back to since the NAFC guys went home...... so off we went around 10:30ish....... fired her up at the launch ran good got three rod out and picking spoons and she stalls...... ran like crap then would not start just like yesterday........ I said well just give her a go with the kicker .......so we did ................went 3 for 3 all browns two at 81' down and one at 71' down..... bullfrogger glow took the two at 81' and herganator one at 71' not much bait around took two fish on a south troll and thrid one came on a west troll when we were going to check things out deep............... worked on the motor when we got back , changed the inline fuel filter ran ok for a while then same crap..... put a can of mec motor tune thru the carbs....... would clear up then back to the same stuff...... last resort I changed the canister fuel filter started her back up ruff for a bit stalled a few times ..... now it SEEMS OK will find out some time in the am ....maybe I can get back to that spot I wanted to try today.............
  21. Just got my own boat. I'm looking for fish locations and what are they hitting? Any info would be much appreciated. Love this site. Very useful. Thank you for any info you have.
  22. Seneca perch ??? I’ve been doing well with my shallow water spoon program and was wondering if anyone trolls for perch on an ongoing basic ??? How and what they try just general info no HOT spots I know how that goes and I'm not looking to be spoon-fed just a helping hand....... Here is my plan ..... what do you think ???? Thinking about giving it a go when I first came up to this wonderful lake in 1996 all I knew was bass and such. It been a long road learning and a GREAT run didn’t have this great site then to help out and save a few $$$ along the way buying or doing what works……………with that said I going to run stinger size spoons , long leads off the riggers and if weeds are not bad a 3 color core inline board with small spoon… if I don't get bit I'll put down small plugs ....... I also have a had full of walleye type spinners that I'll add a little meat to , red worm or slice thin some salmon bait I have........ Any ideas on this ???? If you don’t want put it out there for the world to see just PM me…… Any info I get thru a PM I’ll sit on and keep to myself…… Thanks

I said come on over and we'll go fishing..........he did and we did........... he was over here a tad before 6am and we chatted for a minute or two and headed down to the launch....... did a little scoping things out with depthfinder before cominting myself to a troll..........then set up and had at it....... took a little while to find them but we had a ton of action when we did...........after 10:30am bite went dead..... we boxed three lakers , and a salmon....... released three nice bows at the boat .... lost two good fish and one or two more......with three releases and noone home....... ran three riggers with ALL FLT spoons........ Bob Barker was real good and a glowfrog was also that did thr three lakers then I moved it up out of laker land and it did a bow and we lost a bow or salmon on it......REEL FUN DAY........ thanks for coming over to deliver my spoon order and for the EXTRA stuff you left me Bob !!!!!!!
