Keuka Lake 7/21


Did an early 1/2 day with Dan, Mark and 10 y.o. Amaya. We started just after 6 am and headed right for the Bluff area. Amaya hooked the first fish but didn’t feel strong enough to reel it in! So Mark took over. The guys did great on the morning with 9 fish landed, most in the 19″ to 23″ range and one around 17″ to 18″. We kept 8 of them and there was no signs of bait inside them. Fish are starting to develop eggs and milt. Most were males FWIW. Chartreuse was the hot color today. All fish came on plastics. We caught some suspended over 100′ to 105′ or so, but the best action was from 65′ out to around 90′. Fun day and it was good to get off the water before the heat got too oppressive. I fished another 40 minutes or so casting for bass. Hooked one and missed a few before I quit, but they were aggressive today.
