Seneca Lake out of Sampson State Park 9/13


Guided Michael, Koen and Dominiek for 1/2 day on Seneca. We started on the west shore with the usual “Seneca AM southerlies” blowing around 10 to 15 mph. We were able to find decent numbers of fish N. of Perry Point in around 95′ to 105′ and out further. Action was decent, though not spectacular. The guys landed 4 solid fish and we lost one good one at the net. All were wild and two had fairly fresh lamprey marks. Lunker City Shakers in various colors produced. We found more fish on the west shore than east.

After the trip I did about 90 minutes of casting for pike, with one hit that didn’t feel like a northern. I dropped a Kastmaster down in around 30′ of water and picked up a small smallmouth and missed another. Word is that perch are activating in around 50′ of water. Water temps are around 68.
