Keuka Lake out of Keuka State Park 9/19 AM


Been doing a lot of driving lately – so much I’ve really done a number on my new boat tires! Today I dug out my 2002 Crestliner and met Tom and his brother Chris at the launch at 7 am. The full moon often delays the bite and AM fishing can be slow, since the theory is that many fish feed heavily through the night. That appeared to be the case today, with a lot of fish around but a slow bite to start. By 10 am or so, the bite picked up and the guys were able to make the day respectable. 5 fish rounded out the catch. We had a lot of fun today joking around – it was another very nice day to be out on the water. Not much new to report otherwise. Leaves are changing colors – more so in the valleys, not so much on the lake yet. Water temps are in the mid-60s. Water levels are good and boat traffic minimal.
