Keuka out of Branchport 6/17
Fished Keuka for lakers with John Sander. We got a late start – 9:30am. Had some fair lake trout fishing. We only landed a couple fish though we lost/missed a quite a few. Fish weren’t super aggressive; we were getting hit short a lot. I had 50 degree water down 50′. Most of our action occured from around 60’+. Marked a lot of suspended fish and we were able to hook some.
My take on things is that an early start is the way to go unless it’s an overcast/rainy day. The evening bite was slow for us too, so maybe there’s just a momentary lull in the fishing. We shall see. The fish we kept did not have any bait in them. Given the great bite on Seneca, that may be the best bet for lakers until something proves otherwise.
