Owasco Lake 7/16


Did around a 1/2 day guide trip with Jack and Russ. Fishing looked promising to start with Jack hooking and dropping a laker in short order. However fish were scattered and we didn’t land one until a good hour after the first hookup. The bite was slow with the low clouds. Once the sun came out the fishing picked up and Jack nailed another laker and lost one. Both guys had a few hits. Nice day to be out but the “catching” was slower than usual for Owasco Lake. I had a good time talking with the guys – who are some real go-getters in their respective fields (and that’s a tremendous understatement!)

After the trip ended I fished another 3 hours by myself working on some new jigging techniques. I wound up hooking around 1/2 dozen fish and landing 3 more before calling it quits around 4 pm. H2O was around 72 on top. Bait was around but scattered.
