Honeoye Lake Report and Conditions
Posted by Frank Tennity on June 18, 2014, 3:55 pm
June 2, 2014 started rather slow in the morning, and as the day warmed, the activity of the bass picked up and the bite was on. By early evening, the bass were very active. Wacky rigs and tubes worked the best. The weather stayed warm overnight and on Tuesday June 3, 2014, the conditions were perfect and the bass were active early. We caught some nice pickerel, a nice walleye and loads of willing bass. A mix of baits, tubes, wacky rigs, spinnerbaits and baby brush hogs worked. Once in a while, Texas rigged trick worms fooled a fish or two. |
Wednesday the activity level of the bass was in what I call mid range. They bit steady and we had a good catch rate, but not as good as Tuesday. Once again the water had cooled, and it put the bass a little deeper and not quite as active as the previous day. I would estimate my clients caught 40+ bass in the morning. Same baits as before.
Thursday was a very steady day, almost a carbon copy of Wednesday. Same baits.
Friday the bite was very good. We managed 57 bass on a half day trip. Most were caught on a modified Zoom baby brush hog. Wacky rigged Zoom trick worms fooled some nice bass.
Saturday the water had cooled back down to 64 degrees and the bass activity had slowed. Tom and Tommy, my two clients, did well for the conditions.
Monday June 9, 2014, the water had warmed back up to 71 degrees and bass were active, but scattered.
The majority of the bass caught were between 1 and 6.5 feet of water. When the water was warm last week, several fish moved quite shallow, but the majority were in 6 to 6.5 feet of water. The best presentation was to fish slow and then slow down more.
