LooseEyes90,  Was that bite walleyes or mostly bass?
Spent more time messing with bass than Waldos for sure. Got at least 8 jumbo sunnies on harnesses as well.

Always a lot of gills or sunnies when trolling harnesses on Saratoga. The walleyes should be better in in Saratoga if the numbers of stocked by the DEC are accurate or true. It always makes me wonder. I know survival rate is low, but they say they put 8 million fry in per year. I would think the results would be a little better. Used to fish it a lot but success on eyes was not great. Plenty of crappies in spring but waldo was pretty hard find in both hard and soft water seasons. Any opinions?

Fished Saratoga yesterday from 11 to 5.  Very windy, but calmed down later in the day.

Caught a lot of small bass and panfish on worm harnesses over by Mannings cove.

Went up fish creek later in day and caught 10 or so pike on spinners, largest was 30" or so but lost it right at the boat.  Was using the wrong rod and had no steel leader, right before my old man got the net on it he cut the line.

Either way, it was fun day even thought most of the fish were small.   Caught more fish in 6 hours then I caught on SAcandaga all year.

Next year, I need to figure out the bass and walleye on the dead sea....

For what its worth I've fished there 2x with very limited walleye skills and took limits 2x.  All jigging.

Sacandaga or Saratoga?

Never fished for walleye on either, curiosity has me wondering

Saratoga.  All I can seem to catch at sacandaga is endless smallies.  Buddy of mine had a few really solid evenings at toga catching some decent keepers on a rattle trap!

Funny you mention rattle traps, the single walleye from that lake that I didnít catch on a rattle trap was on a Senko.

And I still canít find them through the hard water....
