Keuka out of Branchport 10/18


Guided the full day with Francois and his dad Frans from Batswana Africa! Everything lined up perfectly today for us and the guys experienced some of the best lake trout action of the season on Keuka, landing 21 solid lakers up to 25″. The bite was steady and very good throughout the AM with at least 3 doubles hooked. 90′ to 115′ was best and we did most fishing at the Bluff. Lunker City Shakers in smelt and albino (white) worked great. We saved a couple hours for some bass fishing and a deep X-Rap got Francois a fat 18″ smallmouth. A nice pickerel and small largemouth were also landed before we wrapped things up at 3 pm. Water temps are in the high 50s! Foliage is peaking – just a great day.
