Keuka out of Branchport 10/5


Fished from 8 am till 3 pm today. Scouted the west side of the Branchport arm down around 3 or 4 miles (south). Found a lot of nice laker flats and managed to scratch up a limit. By the time I figured out the fish it was time to go! They wanted a jig dragged along the bottom, then cranked in as horizontal as possible. The fish didn’t want to move up, just across. Also found a smallie down 50′ and a big perch down over 80′! These fish still seem to be in summer patterns – which makes sense given how hot it’s been. Great learning day on a great lake. I expect Keuka’s fishing to hold up throughout the rest of the year…..
