Bass Fishing / Honeoye Lake
Posted by Frank Tennity on July 2, 2013, 1:32 pm
Just finished a four day school/seminar for a couple from Virginia. We started with basics and went through different methods for catching those green fish. Items covered were topwater, dropshot, wacky, Texas rig, split shoting and spinnerbaits. We used a mix of baits and colors as the conditions changed and I explained why and how to determine what baits to use. They were kind enough to write the following testimonial. |
It is difficult not to write in hyperbole when talking about going out fishing with Frank. A female friend and I had the pleasure of spending 4 days (24 hours) on the water with him this week taking his bass fishing seminar. We had so, so much fun and learned immeasurable fishing skills that we will be able to apply for the rest of our lives. Frank is a consummate professional in all ways: prompt, prepared, friendly, and professional. He is willing to answer any question and is always patient when we mess things up. It is my heartfelt pleasure to recommend his guided service. Rest assured, it is a life changing experience. Thank you Frank!! - Bob Deak, Burke VA
Tom and Tommy fished with me Friday on Canandaigua but the water was to high to launch at Woodville so we went out of the north end. Pickerel were very active on spinnerbaits along with several panfish. We did manage a few smaller largemouth at the northern end of the lake.
The bass are biting good on Honeoye but it appears that many are post spawn. We caught 50-60 bass with most coming on a wacky rig or dropshot. Monday the rain started as soon as we hit the water and it was still raining last night. The bass seem to be moving between 8 and 12 feet of water. Match your bait with the water color as it is always changing. Water color has ranged from clear to muddy to having a large amount of algae.
