Seneca Lake out of Geneva 10/2


Got out with Perry and his daughter Stephanie for what was to be a full day. Winds were fairly strong out of the south blowing around 10 to 15 mph. Conditions were cold and rainy and Steph got a case of motion sickness on the ride out, we stuck it out for a bit, but after a couple hours of fishing w/o action we called it a day. Water temps are around 62 degrees. I expect pike fishing to be OK on Seneca now, but as I’ve said before, numbers of pike on this lake are down 80% or more. Perry’s primarily a live-bait angler these days, so that’s what we did. I’m not sure how we’d have done casting, but we weren’t able to cover too much water, though we did hit one of my favorite areas. Two other boats were out early, but both had left by the time we got back in. Not great “fun fishing” conditions out there!
