Fished out of Severne yesterday, picked up 10 and our second boat ended up with around 25.  Had 3 real nice ones, small plastics, a few on meal worms on a drop shot. Ours came north of the launch  in about 21 ft of  water. Beautiful day, quite a few boats there and everyone was getting them

I know Seneca doesn't freeze over. But what about the ramps and launches how do you get your boat in and out? Are they not covered in ice and snow.

Wellsley,
No problem at the launch, I know guys who have been fishing since October. Severne has a nice launch with ribbed cement ramps. You just have to pick your days and dress for it. Some guys hve those small propane heaters that work well.

Severne is a good spot for trolling for lakers. I've been there in the summer. My hats off to anyone that fishes Seneca in the winter there can be some tough conditions. I hope the state keeps the road down to the launch clear. I think I'd try to put in at Lodi. I've caught some nice perch off the point at Lodi(in the summer) Good Luck with the perching.

Hey Trucken,
When our  guides did ice up we just dip them in the lake. Does the wd keep the eyes from freezing up?
Sounds like you did well. We fished last Friday and the temps were the same. A friend went over yesterday and he and his partner got limits. I pullled the boat in the garage today so maybe next week I can get it wet.

Hey percher

WD does the trick we use it at the niagara river if its in the teens or low 20,s .
One thing different though my perch rigs have much smaller eyes and the fire line seemed to be a little stickey.
Our line was breaking at our blood knot way to much in the morning. I prob wont be there for a few weeks due to onedia being so good.
Good luck

My perch partner and I fished out of Severne today and picked up around 30 keepers and several smalls that we released back. 4 other boats were out and some trout trollers. All came in 20 FOW.
Weather was a little cold but hardly any wind until late in the afternoon when the north winds came in.

I have heard of perch being caught from the pier but most are caught from boats.

Start at Roy's Marina about 2 miles south on Rt 14 of Geneva.  Not the best launch, but pay the $6.00 and talk to the owners Larry & Roz.  They are super nice people and will give you some good and current information.  They also have a decent amount of the right tackle to get you started.  There is good fishing for perch right in their bay - Glass Factory - and it's as good a place as any to start.

Go with light line 4-6lb test, but not necessarily a light action rod.  These fish are caught as deep as 100' sometimes and most often between 20-50'.  Heavy weights are used to get down fast and an ultalight rod just doesn't give you the sensitivity you need with heavier weight.  I use medium & sometimes medium light action rods.

If you are lucky and get a calm day, cruise around along the drop or in the deepest water you can see bottom in.  You will eventually see what your after.    Probably won't catch too many of them, but it will get you fired up.   These are uncommonly spooky fish, so give others plenty of room, whether you are just scouting or looking to pull up and anchor.

This is a tough lake to fish!!!!  Don't get discouraged, but you need to put your time in.

My suggestion would be find someone who has already fished it a few times or your going to get VERY frustrated, the perch can be very hard to target and even harder to catch with any consistency. Don't get me wrong maybe your really good and you'll have no problem but, I've been after them for more than 10 years and still have some BAD days on Seneca Lake.

Good Luck,
Steve
