Skaneateles Lake 9/11 PM


Got out with the Hermans for a PM 1/2 day fishing from 1pm till about 5:30. The smallmouth bite was a bit tentative for us, perhaps due to the front. Eleonore managed to lure up a giant smallmouth, that I literally thought was a carp for a few seconds, but it didn’t grab her Superfluke. Others were showing themselves but not gobbling. We found mostly smaller bass active and most fish seemed negative to neutral. Tubes jigs did best though we caught a couple dropshotting. Bass ran from around 11″ to 17″, though most were 11″ to 13″. No great numbers today – 7 or 8 was it. We caught plenty of rockbass too.
