Little Seneca Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I was up at the Lake fishing for a few hours yesterday. Water temp was 63. and caught two Largemouth and 3 Smallmouth from the shore. Smallmouth were ten feet from the shore in 2-3\' of water. I used live green worms and caught 6-8 perch, bluegill, but could see the bass weren\'t hitting the live green worms. So I switched to a Carolina rig setup with glass bead and a #1 Gamakatsu Worm Hook with a Watermelon Red Zoom bait, but bit off 25% of the worm (head end) to make it a little smaller. I cast it out 10\' feet and dragged it slowly along thwe bottom. Within 90 seconds each time, I had Smallmouth and Largemouth, 10\" smallest to 18\" largest. They were very aggressive with the right kind of presentation.

Little Seneca Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

- Ain\'t no trouts in he-uh, good buddy. Too hot for natural reproduction (est. 83 degrees at the moment, 23 July 2013); and the State (MD DNR) doesn\'t stock this water - or any other lake, pond, or stream in the county.

Little Seneca Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
