Honeoye Lake and Keuka Lake

Honeoye Lake is starting to warm and the bass are reflecting the temperature rise by a huge increase in their activity level. The bite is more predictable and aggressive than it was last week. A mix of baits, from wacky rigged trick worms to Texas rigged baby brush hogs, have both worked well. I rigged a Denny Brauer jig with a zoom trailer and it was quite effective.

Keuka Lake presented some challenges as the water is 60 to 61 degrees in the Penn Yan branch. Folks from a neighboring state managed to catch several largemouth, smallmouth, pickerel and a few rock bass. Wacky rigged finesse worms, Bass Pro tubes, and a Stanley spinnerbait all fooled some nice fish. With the water so cool, be sure to fish slow and wear your life jacket.

Good fishing,
