Conesus lake in Musky, Tiger Musky & Pike (ESOX) Posted June 8, 2009 Thanks for all the info guys! Love the pics. Do you guys suppose Canandaigua is similar to Conesus? One thing that's been confusing me are the bass. I assume they are in post spawn right now. If I'm not mistaking, aren't the males guarding the nests? And once the females spawn, don't they pretty much not eat for a while? I'm trying to figure out the pattern. When bass fishing right now, should you really only target the guarding males in shallow or will the females hit also?
