Northern Pike /Tiger Muskie Opener=WHERE?


Recommended Posts

Headed to Sodus this year. Have never fished it. Usually hit the north end of Cayuga Lake every year as we live in Rochester and other half of family lives in Binghamton so it is nice and in the middle to meet. We have amazing luck picking up about 10 pike a person with the avg being about 20 to 25 inches and there are usually one or two caught over 30. Been quite a few below 20 the last few years so may as well try something different. Where is good on Sodus for Pike? Looks like the whole thing is ideal for pike..

I like the area west of thortons point and around leroy island. Ralttle and swim baits worked well for us last year in the 10-15ft range. Good luck maybe we will see you there. Im in an old blue boat with full windshield.

Thanks for the tip. I am looking forward to it as I can't believe I have never fished there with it being so close and really seems like you would do well there. We will be in a white and green Hurricane Deck Boat......

Hey Lee, you ever have luck with Pike in Irondequoit Bay? Last year I tried to make a point to get there as much as possible to fish it since I never really fished there either. We would head south out of the boat launch and immediately head right or west to the shore line and fish all the way up to the Bay Bridge. We never caught any pike but we did catch bass. Is the north east corner where it is super shallow and weedy good for pike or have you never really caught any in there......We also fished just south and east of the bridge which I think is called Devil's Hole but we had zero luck there.
