Sodus Bay/Lake Ontario 4/25
Tried some casting around the bay looking for some early drum. Didn’t find any. Water temps reached the mid-50s in the bay. Lots of panfish and bass are active in the shallows. Tried a few areas out in Lake Ontario – temps are in the mid-40s. We didn’t see any trout or bass. We did mark some bait out around 50′ to 70′ of water. Lake/bay water levels are high. The best drum action is usually once water temps get into the low 70s, so it’ll probably be around 3 weeks or so – usually by mid to late May the bays are loaded with drum.
