Seneca shootout

Recommended Posts

Well, the village park's or Watkins Glen has okayed the event. A new rule format is in the works. Observers are out. Cooler checks are in. Many changes to the original format. Will post breakdown later. Until then lets get a boat count on the LOU. Looking forward to this. I'm working hard and putting a lot of spare time into this. Already drawn up supporters, volunteers, and sponsors.

Also, I tallied up what we have so far for boats. I am around 16 boats from the LOU community alone. This does not even count boats I have encountered on the water or at local places as well. This is going to be a great event! With room to grow! Lets hit that 20 boat mark and make this more competitive. If anyone has any insight or suggestions please call me. I am sorry for the date to the guys who fish Pro-ams. Sorry. There was nothing I can do. I had to work around Watkins Glen events.. Race weekend, italian fest etc....

So please, POST AN IM IN! I am organizing the dinner for the event with Jerlando's Italian Pizzeria and Rest. Will be a buffett dinner.

Tight lines.

Hi Lakebound, My name is bob and I'm from Rochester, I'm interested in this Seneca Lake Shootout. Never been to seneca Lake to fish. Is this for the hole lake or just the south end. Would you have any info that you can send me on this? another question is I have a 30ft sea ray that I would have to drive through the Oswego river to Seneca and would you know how many locks that I would have to go through and a ballpark time frame this would take? a place to dock for the weekend and things like that? Hope to hear from you soon. thanks.

I know poke pole.. me too. But to do without the observer ideas.. saved me from hearing it. But I am with toy at heart.

I tried to get guys to help. No body offered other than Mike and Sean but were on our way...

there are 14 locks from oswego river mouth to seneca lake - I did it in two days but I started at 2:30 pm - maybe one day if you start at 7:00 am from oswego mouth. WATCH YOUR SPEED - THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT IS NOT TRUE - THEY WILL CLOCK YOU FROM LOCK TO LOCK - AVERAGE SPEED WILL BE 10 MPH EVEN IF POSTED DIFFERENT.
