Seneca out of Sampson 7/6


Lake trout jigging remains good to excellent on Seneca Lake. It didn’t take long for me to pick up 4 nice fish from 22″ to 28″ today. Best depth was right at 60′, though I picked up fish a little shallower and as deep as 80′. Bait pods are scattered, but it’s obvious that there is bait around as the stomachs of the 3 fish I kept were pretty much packed with large alewives.

Jigging wasn’t easy with the 2′ + waves. I had to use my electric trolling motor quite a bit to keep me moving slowly. Fish came on the drift for the most part, only 1 fish hit when I was reeling up. H2O was around 69 to 71 on the surface.
