Bas Fishing/ Honeoye Lake

The weather just can't stay nice for more than a day or two, and the bass have been thoroughly confused. The cold nights and cool days dropped the water temperature several degrees, and the bass have moved out deeper. If we have even a small amount of sun to increase the temperature a couple of degrees, the fish move shallower, so move you should movein and out until you find them. We have done better out deep in the morning with the activity level picking up in the afternoon and evening. |
Saturday, the bass were slow in the morning, and when they did take the bait, it was a light bite. A client caught the biggest bass, an honest 4 lber. An evening trip, after the day had cleared, produced around 30 bass with most being in the 12-14 inch class.
Sunday was a decent day for mowing yards, so evening seemed to be a good time to scout for active fish. We fished the north end of Honeoye for just under 3 hrs. and boated at least 50 bass. Bait color did not seem to matter. Standard colors have been working: watermelon seed, green pumpkin and junebug. Change colors and weights until you hit the right combo that works.
Good fishing, wear your life vest:
