Owasco Lake 9/30


It wasn’t exactly “Miami Beach” out there today on Owasco Lake, but dressing for November certainly helped. It was windy! Guided Dave for a 1/2 day. Fishing was slow to start, despite marking plenty of baitfish and some nice “hooks.” We stuck around the N. end for awhile and Dave landed a solid 20″ smallmouth – his best to date. The fish hit a Kastmaster. We had one other “chaser” – likely a bass. We didn’t mark many lake trout. A boat ride south towards spawning areas proved productive and a 20″ laker came to the net on the 2nd drop with a white fluke. Lots of lakers were around the points, but not many were hitting for us. All in all, I think fishing will be good on this lake this fall, but today things were unsettled with the weather and slow with the bite. Lake temps are around 62 – the lake is cooling quickly!
