Sodus Bay 6/24


Just returned after a full-day with the Hermans. We were hoping for some gar and drum but the strong west winds made spotting and fishing to gar pretty difficult and not worth it. We didn’t see any drum, though I’m sure a few are still around. Throwing Senkos, Super Flukes, spinnerbaits and tube jigs produced some nice largemouths today up to around 2.5lbs. We didn’t encounter any pike – which doesn’t surprise me since Sodus Bay’s pike fishing has been a shadow of what it used to be for years now. We did see plenty of gar but we didn’t fish for them. I showed John how to pitch for bass and he had fun learning the technique. No fish on the jig ‘n plastic, but he will get them next time! Bay temps got into the low 70s today. The big lake was way too rough to try smallmouth fishing. I should be back on the bay/lake soon.
