Seneca Lake out of Sampson 3/30


Quick report here – man am I tired! Fished with John Sander from 10:45 am or so till around 5 pm. We jigged for lake trout in 120′ to 170′ of water. Most action was in 125′ to 140′. Dropped a few fish including one on the first cast, but we managed 5 nice lakers from 18″ to 26″. Most were good fish; all were unclipped. One had 2 very large alewives in its stomach. Lots of mostly small perch in the marina at Sampson. Tons of boats out perch fishing – didn’t hear too much regarding action. Lake trout fishing for us was slow but steady. Just enough bites to make it worth doing and fun. Of course the forecast sun didn’t stay out for long and the wind direction was crazy – light and variable enough to keep blowing us slowly OFF the fish! We did have a double going for a little bit. Oh well, that’s how it goes…..
