Seneca North end, any info?

Recommended Posts

Have not had the chance to get out to the lake since labor day.  Planning to try a last ditch fishing effort Saturday morning before taking the boat out at Sampson.  Would appreciate any info on what has worked recently for those who have fished the North end of the lake.

My last trip produced lots of salmon and bows but that was a few weeks ago now also. But sliders on riggers with smolt sized finger lakes tackle spoons and also 7 color lead core was a good choice to have in the water

Out on Seneca now. Huge waste of time. Don't see bait unless it's tight to the bottom. No strikes east or west. Cayuga keeps producing if you wanna catch fish and not waste your time

Washed some gear for 2.5 hours with no takers.  Did mark a few bait pods, mostly clung to the bottom and did mark some good areas with a lot of fish both suspended and on the bottom in around 60 fow. Nothing wanted to bite however.

It's tough on Seneca. I can count the trout and salmon I caught this year on one hand.... 3 Lakers jigging and one salmon on a orange and chartreuse flat fish.

Haven't given up on Seneca yet tho. Lots water to still try

The two lake fish a lot alike don't give up and don't lose confidence. Keep

At it and keep trying. Slides on riggers 5 and 7 color cores and then deep divers tend to produce this time of year lakers can be very vulnerable this time of year just need to find them is all I noticed this morning that early early on the lakers were hugging I mean hugging the bottom went back through that same area later on mid morning and they all

Lifted up off the bottom generally that means active fish but I was searching for silvers and also picking up rods at the same time so did not try and get those fish to bite. Good luck out there

Seneca (north end) has seemed to be a couple weeks behind the norm all season long and I wouldn't be surprised if when the water temps  go into the fifties the fishing will pick up in the top 30-50 ft to surface over whatever for the silvers. Browns are always a question mark but many of the bigger ones will be spawning or getting ready for it in the usual places.  The lakers should be back in gear in early November if the night time temps bring down the shallow water temps and the wind is out of the south for a while but again could be a little late this year compared with the norm. Perch fishing has also been "off" thus far for most of the folks I know.
