Seneca Lake out of Geneva 5/18 am


Got out with Julius and Tom for a 1/2 day trip (targeting lake trout,) which ended up getting cut off by an hour or so due to incoming thunderstorms. The fish are definitely on the move and despite the very hot bite of the past week, there’s a chance the derby may feature more of a conventional, rather than hot bite. We shall see. Fish aren’t as bunched up as they were, at least from what I saw. Or at least they weren’t where they previously were, which is more likely the case. But with 47 degree water on the surface, lakers are comfortable everywhere from 10 FOW out to 100 and deeper, on the bottom, suspended and top.

Tom wound up with the hot hand landing three solid lakers. Fish were hitting well. We talked to two other groups (boats) and they didn’t catch any. Some of it may be technique or location. I won’t likely be back on Seneca until the derby.
