Saturday the bass fishing on Honeoye Lake was much slower. A hard morning produced about half to two thirds the fish I would have expected. Then the evening bite was also slow. We caught bass but the numbers were not great. On Sunday, a small group of fishing buddies found the bass very negative. The only answer that I have is possibly post spawn condition. However, we all know what happened Sunday afternoon and evening. Huge rains once again raised the water level to our docks and turned the lake into a turbid mess. Visibility in the water was close to zero but a few bass bit. The over night color change in the fish was amazing, going from the normal dark bass color to almost white. |
Conditions were not the best and with high water and poor water conditions, a trip to Sodus Bay was in order. We hit the bay about mid morning and took a quick look at the Big O, and went back in the bay. We managed a bass here and there, but Sodus was not her usual self. Shortly after noon we found an active school of nice bass and the bite was setady. Just a fun day. A mix of Zoom baits worked on Honeoye and primarily, wacky rigged Zoom kudzu trick worms on Sodus.
