Seneca Lake out of Geneva 7/18 AM


Guided Mark and Cathy, who’d joined me out of Geneva a couple years ago, and Mark’s dad Jerry. Laker fishing started out a tad slow at 6 am, but picked up significantly as the morning progressed. We had one double and overall a dozen very solid, fat fish were landed in around 3 hours after which we called it a day. No lampreys and most fish were very clean looking. Nearly all were wild and all were loaded with bait. The usual plastics worked well – Lunker City shakers and Swim Fishies.

Has the north end finally turned on consistently? We’ll see, but signs are very encouraging. Around 75′ to 115′ was best. Very few boats were out and the light north wind kept us comfortable. Perfect day out there!
