Owasco Lake 10/12


Guided Charlie and Brian for the full day today. Water temps are at 60 and we even had 63 on top on the east shore. Fishing started out promising with a laker on Charlie’s first drop in 85′ of water around some bait. The guys dropped/missed a fair number offish as they learned the technique – both on spoons and on plastics. The bite picked up as winds diminished around noon and a couple more fish were landed. Things slowed for us during the PM, but we managed a decent smallmouth and a few more lakers mid-lake fishing a point. These fish were close to the spawn. I had a good report from past client Mike (from 10/1), who made out very well on lakers today. We found the best fishing to be around 100′ to 105′, with decent fish (esp. suspended) out to 110′ or more. All in all a very good time was had today and the weather couldn’t be beat. I’d expect laker fishing to move more towards the points soon, but the north end flats are still worth checking for at least another couple weeks.
