Skaneateles Lake 6/3


Guided Mark for a full day here. We’d previously done a Cayuga Lake trip for bass/pickerel/pike and a Seneca trip for lakers. I thought that he might enjoy Skaneateles Lake for some bass fishing. The bass fishing wound up being pretty good, especially when the wind was up. Mark landed a handful of nice fish up to 18″. He had a ton of grabs and momentary hookups including some from other 18″ class smallies. He had fun fishing with flukes and tubes. A couple jumbo perch and rock bass also found Mark’s lures. Plenty of bass are paired up and I would expect good fishing here. I’m not a big fan of targeting spawners but there are always plenty of non-spawners around depending on where you fish. The lake was gorgeous as always and is just about swimable temperature-wise! We had upwards of 62 degrees on top today. Boat traffic was low until the latter part of the day.
