Seneca Lake out of Geneva 7/2


Started at 6 am with a 1/2-day trip with David, Linda and Bob – who joined me last year on Keuka Lake. Last year we fished 1/2 day with Dave and Bob and then “traded” Bob for Linda – and the wind picked up on Keuka and the bite slowed. Well today Linda more than made up for that tough day last year. She pounded fish! I’d look over towards her and her rod would be doubled over. She’d never say “I got one” or anything – she was all business. She landed a bunch of fish incl. a beautiful 32″ laker that we released unharmed. Overall a great AM with 12 nice fish landed! Average fish was 25″. Surface temps were 59 to start. Gorgeous day! It doesn’t get any better.

My PM 1/2 day was with Lonnie whom I’d met on occasion on Seneca Lake and around town. I did a real jigging tutorial with him and he’ll be hammering lakers from here on in. He loves Seneca perch fishing and gave me some solid tips. Despite the semi-tough midday bite, he landed 5 fish on a variety of plastics. We worked 50′ to 150′. There are plenty of suspended fish out deep. Best action was from 55′ to around 80′ or so. Fun trip and surface temps reached 69 as winds blew warm water back in.
