Pike season coming to an end


Recommended Posts

Hit the SLR today for the first time in over a month after being south. Wanted to see if I could get a pike before season closes. Was fortunate to get my limit in a few hours fishing.Biggest was 31”.

Those are really just dinks compared to what the size potential is for them, especially in the SLR. But unfortunately it is the new norm.

Not sure where on the Seneca River these were caught but for Seneca Lake proper, the fishery, and especially the pike fishery, of Seneca has suffered a great deal in recent years.

Meanwhile, I don't believe anyone on here is criticizing anyone personally for taking legal fish. It's more about NYS regulations that are not really favorable in spite of many waters that would & could support trophy fish if there was a proper slot limit such as those in the Upper Midwest and Canada.

Got ya... then, for sure, those fish are certainly small for that body of water but. I believe, the St. Lawrence pike fishery has declined significantly since the Seaway was built as pike would historically lay eggs in areas that had great flooding / higher water which is now controlled.
