Seneca lake Big Fish Friday

Recommended Posts

I'm putting my feelers out for interest in a BFF. We have a private property about 2 miles north of Sampson. Weigh in would be at 5pm and entry would be $20, winner takes all. If there is enough interest by tomorrow evening I would give interested parties address, phone number and parking info.

Well right now we only 4 boats. I was hoping to get at least 10. So if anybody is interested please let me know. I'm sorry for the short notice of trying to get this going, had to get ok for use of parking lot across street so we wouldn't be parking on 96.

Any payout for the biggest skunk?  Wish I could make it but probably won't get to the lake until about noon on Friday.  Good luck to all!

I wish I could laugh out loud.  LOL...  Well, I can but I'm only laughing at myself.  I've been on a few times and it's been pretty tough so far but the water has been so cold.  This past weekend I was only hitting mid 40s on the surface in the morning and maybe high 40s by afternoon.  Been fishing north of Sampson.  Hopefully this warm blow out of the south will turn on the feed bags.

It was like this in the mid seventies to early eighties too and once they got the lampreys under better control the fishery bounced back. There is still hope My diary reports for some years back then indicated about 4 hrs to catch a trout and it is similar right now. Challenging yes and it required "thinking out of the box" and experimentation and.....patience and no matter how good you are at it some "luck" as far as winning the derby.

Yep Les. Patience will be key. With these temps, fish are all over the place. Don’t leave fish to find fish. If your not marking them find a new spot. Don’t overthink things. You guys know this. Good luck to everyone out there. Be safe. Should be good weather. I’ll be following that whaler out there.......

Ok so getting post back on point. Les...your always fishing, you should get in for BBF. And if there is anyone else let me know asap, i will be cutting off entry tonight at 8 PM. Numbers are getting better since I posted on the National Lake Trout derby Facebook page. It's a great way to kick off the derby weekend with a little friendly biggest fish takes all the money!

Brett first of all thanks for doing the BFF and I appreciate the invitation. I have a couple of personal issues: one my boat trailer is currently in the process of being fixed (brake master cylinders and seals, new tires) and I hope  by Saturday for sure. The second thing relates to my main reason for not pre- fishing at all for more than the last ten or more years is because I have caught bigger fish than won the derby both before and after the derby in the past and I am quite superstitious so I now always go in cold the first day and try to figure out things from there. I do miss the social aspects of getting together with a great bunch of folks though and wish everyone good luck out there.

Sounds good Nick, maybe see if there’s any interest in doing it the weekend prior vs the day prior. Might get the guys that are somewhat superstitious of catching a derby winner the day before. Just an idea.
