Seneca First solo trip out of new camp

Recommended Posts

Figured it was time to give it ago this morning , went down 715 or so fished till 10ish. Getting out of lift and back in went very good. 

I thought I had an idea where the browns should be so I set-up a two rigger spoon program. Ended up with 5 small bows small 12" and smaller 8". One small brown 15.5" and a 21" #4 landlock........ I was very happy to see these small fish the first I've caught in three years....one of the bows could have been a landlock but I like to get them back in the water fast as I can when they are that size.The board is just there for size didn't run it.

Good going Ed you sure did better better than we did. We trolled from 6 AM till 2:30 PM  and from north of the high banks to just north of Sampson and then from halfway between Long Point to Belhurst with 6 rods out and all we could manage was one 8 inch rainbow and a 10 inch landlock, Saw lots of bait but not many fish. No other hits. The weeds were very bad on both sides nearly the whole time out and we had a few fleas on the wires but the leadcore and copper were fine. We fished from 70 ft to 170 with most time spent in 80-100 where most of the bait was. Very disappointing day

Weeds were not bad south of Long Point just stringers no pods...... I'm running 15# on riggers very little fleas so far...

Yep  I didn't have any on the 30 lb Sea Flee with12 lb fluooro leaders either but they showed up on the 30 lb SS 7 strand in about a 12 inch clump on each. Most of the weeds were small pods but they were nearly everywhere we went but conditions seemed a little better on the west side (but not much) :lol:

Back out this morning , same two rod spread picked up two browns 8" to 12" ( yea looks like they stocked some this year ) and another 21" 4.5# landlock female eggs added .5# ....... talked Iron Duke on my way in ...... time to get the fleaflicker out one rod that was in for awhile was jammed up with fleas , guess the little bows keep me busy enough yesterday it didn't build up..... nasty lampyre on the salmon , this fish was a bull-dog like a brown wonder how hard it would/could have fight with out some much life sucked out of it.....

A lot of these lampreys seem to be older adults from the size and maybe that could be a good thing if the last treatment of the ammocetes was successful. I know in the past when they started up the treatments it seemed that way a while afterward. Anything that can help is sure a step in the right direction as the fishery seems under heavy pressure right now. I know it may seem sadistic but I seem to derive great pleasure from grasping their heads with pliers while making two of them with my knife :lol:
