Seneca Quality vs Quantity - Seneca Lake Rainbow


Recommended Posts

Got out for the first time this season last week.  Slow start on the SW corner, marking lots of bait but not many fish.  Moved north and saw lots of gulls swooping and diving (alewives).  Setup and made a turn, leadcore (6 colors) fires hard.  After a nice fight boated a nice 5.25 lbs rainbow.  He ate a steely dan DW SS spoon.  My expectations were low so I was happy to connect with a quality fish although that was it for the morning,  This was a hatchery fish with a clipped ventral fin.  Surface temps were 64-66 , no fleas or weeds to deal with.  Speed 2.5mph.  Check out my vid of the morning on my YT channel

Great video and absolutely a beautiful fish.  I will be up there July 19-Aug 8.  Staying near Hector.  I have a 16’ Tracker Laker DLX with gray with “Pair of Jacks” on port bow.  
I will look for you on the Lake.
