Keuka Lake out of Branchport 10/22


Guided Tom, Ryan and Michael for a 1/2 day AM trip. In a nutshell, the lake trout jigging bite was excellent with the guys landing nearly 30 fish! Tom was the only one of the bunch who’d jigged this style before. Water temps are around 58/59. We only saw a couple other boats out on the water. Fish ran 17″ to 23″ long. Fall colors are peaking! Great day on the water. 80′ to 90′ was excellent. Plastics – namely white Shakers and chartreuse Inshore Angler (Bass Pro Shops) and Lunker City swimbaits did the trick. Fish are feeding fairly heavily and there’s a good amount of bait around (especially for Keuka.) The guys were a lot of fun and very impressed with the fishing and the fishery.
