Seneca Seneca South 7/10-7/11 (salmon bite)

Recommended Posts

Got out around 730am Tuesday and fished the west side.  Didn't mark much bait/arcs in shallow so worked out deeper and across towards east side, started marking more fish and got bites off the deeper rigger.  Went 3/4 all salmon.  17incher went in the cooler, 2 dinks went back and a long distance release on another legal size silver.  All fish off rigger at 55ft on green ladderback spoon behind vertical green blades...


Made it out earlier today and it made a big difference.  On the water before 6am and was headed to the area I found fish yesterday but marked some nice bait balls and arcs right out in front of my lift so decided to setup and trolled south (east side), kept marking fish in 20-60ft with bait but no releases... made a big turn to troll back north and got my first salmon off a steely dan stinger down 30ft.  Trolling north through the same area and the bite was on.  Ended up with 12 releases and boated 8.  All legal fish from 15-21".  Of course the best fish came off after a couple awesome leaps, looked to be a 4-5lbr and I was bummed for sure.  But I had my limit on salmon and was happy with a nice 2 hrs of fishing.  Bite seemed to shut off by 830.  Orange seemed to be the color today and most fish came from the rigger at 30ft and from a cheater at approx 24ft on the deeper rigger.  One off of a fly/dodger combo with 6 colors of leadcore.   No fleas, few weeds, surface temp 72....

    • Creek Salmon eat Skein, but staging Salmon Don't bite

      I have a friend that catches tons of salmon in the creeks and rivers on Skein. In fact two years ago he took me to the falls on the Genesee and we caught about 6 or 7 huge Kings on Skein. So why do I have such trouble getting a staging Salmon to hit, as I troll back and forth through a screen covered with salmon, trying everything in my arsenal? Usually this results in nothing but frustration. I'm wondering if if should just drift over them with Skein!   Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario

    • Cayuga south end 9/13

      Got out from 7am to 11:15am before the wind and waves came up. Went 16 for 17 lakers and salmon. Most lakers were the 7-8lb range, all the salmon were sub legal. Speed at the ball was 2.2-3.0. 70-250FOW. 10 color leadcore did the work, but dipseys at 130 and riggers at 45 and 60 both took fish as well. Bright scorpion size spoons and standard DW’s in black/silver were the tickets. Light fleas, top water was 68, below 60’ down was mid 40’s. Every fish we got was super fat, healthy and were ready

    • If you happen to catch a #20 salmon with a rod and reel attached...

      Flying up Saturday morning for my annual trip with my Dad. He's been up per fishing when he can get out by himself (81 years young!)   He was in 639 FOW yesterday when he hit a nice salmon, about #20, and got it to the boat. Whatever happened, he was having a devil of a time netting the fish...   So he put the rod down to try and net the fish...   ... Missed the fish...   ... Fish takes off...   ... with the whole rig... tackle, rod, and reel...   Plus, when he went to try and grab t

    • Salmon, is it worth the knife?

      I am just starting out salmon trolling this year and am curious since I have tried numerous “fresh” salmon during the early fall run and found it is only palatable smoked. Is lake caught salmon all that much better and worth the preparation for a family dinner?  I’d like to hear some thoughts on this and maybe get some favorite recipes since they are so much fun to catch.
