Seneca Lake out of Geneva 8/5


Had a good time with Ed and Bob on a full day trip. We had unsettled weather in the AM (6 am start time) with a good steady rain for around an hour. Fish cycled on and off, but the bite was never boring. The guys lost a lot of nice fish today, but we wound up landing 8 good lakers up to 29″. The best fishing was from around noon onwards – the early bird doesn’t always get the worm. Very light boat traffic out there. The guys have had some good luck with the jigging technique on Round Valley Reservoir in New Jersey. 73′ to around 90′ was best – though there are plenty of fish deeper. No shortage of bait either on the N. end. The usual chartreuse and white plastics fished on 1 oz. jigheads did the trick.
