Any tips on trolling for land locks rainbows brown trout. I will be fishing Seneca, any tips on depth spoons leader length? I have two riggers that I can stack. I was told to try and mimic a school of bait fish. Would cow bells be best for this? Any tips would help a ton! Thanks!

I've been doing great with cowbells or dodgers with spin n glo rigs. Green and chartreuse in color just off the bottom. Two man limit of lakers today in just under 4 hours. Quit running all my other rods because only the deep riggers produced.

On Cayuga Lake we are getting plenty of silvers off downriggers using spoons around 60 to 75 feet down. Try anything with blue in it.

Matt - the temp range you want to be in is 50-60 degrees and it is running at 30-55 ft down at the north end right now. The cowbells are mainly used for lakers down deep although an occasional silver may be caught with them..  Run small to medium flutter spoons about 30-50 ft behind the boat and troll about 2.4 -2,8 mph making S turns frequently. Start out near the Geneva Golf Club where it drops off to 70-80 ft and troll south on diagonals from 80 ft of water out to about the middle back and forth all up the west side to Reeds Bay and then go back north east all along the east side  near the high banks area doing the same trolling on diagonals until you hit fish. Along the way every few minutes raise or lower the riggers 5 ft or so and keep varying your trolling speed. Occasioanlly put the motor at idle for a brief time and then start back up increasing your speed. Good luck.

That is what this site is all about, helping people.  I don't fish Cayuga mush anymore, my buddy does not like the bigger water.  Just saying thank to all the helpers on here.....jk
