Seneca Lake/Geneva 8/13


Guided Mike and Eddie for the 1/2 day AM. Conditions were foggy/hazy this AM and it definitely slowed the bite. We had one solid hookup in the AM. Lots of fish were showing up on the fish-finder and chasing the jigs. A move down the lake worked (as did the fog burning off) and we started getting into some fish. Once we returned to the N. end the fish had activated there too. We landed some nice fish, basically an OK morning.

In between trips I motored up the Canal just checking things out. I haven’t fished it in at least 10 years and I saw some bass and tons of baitfish. I managed one nice largemouth dropshotting. The weedgrowth screamed “plastic worms texas rigged” to me, but I didn’t have the stuff on hand.

PM Trip: I met Jaimie and her husband Tim at the launch and we headed out for lakers. Tim had a hold of a solid fish in short order. Things slowed a bit then Jaimie landed two, including a nice 28″ fish. A move downlake managed to help Tim land two as well. He’d lost a couple others earlier. We kept the fish and one of them had bright orange fillets – some of the nicest fish I’ve seen for eating! It was a fun trip and nice way to end a busy guiding week. About 80′ to 105′ was best.
