Emm those perch look good. Slow down to Sampson. Couldn't tell by the 15 trucks or so down there. Was hoping for fish lunch. Guess it's a McDonald's fish day lol

Mr Gambel, when they tested you for mercury did they use just the fillets or a whole body sample when they grind you up and use the spectrometer?

I finished the Seneca trifecta today.  3 skunks this year.  Yeah me!

 

Don't want the golden sombrero so I will see you next year old friend!

 

 

I am stubborn - got the golden sombrero - struck out 4 times this year.  But I struck out swinging.

Thats one thing (Seneca Perch) that will make really good fishermen look like amateurs. Been there, done that. Like finding a needle in a haystack at times. Some of the hardest fishing all year. Just have to keep going.

  We launched at Sampson a couple weeks ago. We fished for perch from the South end of Sampson Park to where the Officer's Cub was and never caught or marked a fish. Then we went slowly out to 150 FOW thinking we might better jig Lakers, but we didn't mark any of them either. We went over in front of Dresden, still no fish. We motored back across and fished around Willard, nothing there either. All together after 5 hrs on the lake we got skunked.

 

  In my opinion and that of a lot of other experienced Seneca Lake Captains and recreational fisherman, this summer was a huge disappointment. When we can fish for 5 hrs and seldom even mark a fish, something is wrong. The launch at Dean's cove was packed all summer with people who were disappointed with their results on Seneca.

 

  Happy New Year.

With a south wind you might better fish out of Watkins Glen. The fishing is probably better there too.

By noon the wind is supposed to be 12-13 mph out of the SW by noon which means 2-4ft waves/white caps at the north end maybe more. than the 2 minimum. You may stand a chance fishing the south end of the lake but it is a hike from Sodus and you'd probably have to fish the very corners of the lake anchored up. It is supposed to be 10 mph at 7 AM tomorrow changing to the SW at 9 AM and 12mph by noon SW.  Usually the high number is close to the minimum there.

You have a PM with a potential plan "B"

7mph straight south will be boobing?, bobing, up and down at the N end. Yeah, be careful. If you sit down you should be OK if you find fish.

I was thinking about Sampson if it was to rough. Never been but throwing a small jig into some open water will be a nice change of pace instead of waiting for ice
