Keuka 7-1-12

Recommended Posts

Managed to sneak out for a few hours in the AM and pick this guy up. Not sure of scale accuracy but said 9 lbs. Caught jigging in about 130 FOW over about 150 FOW.

Great fish! :clap: Must have felt great on jigging tackle. Nice to see some larger lakers coming out of Keuka this season. Hopefully the limit will be increased to 5 this fall to help thin population out.

I want to jig up one of these Lake Ontario guys:

The king got grilled last night for dinner. Came out perfect marinaded in spiedie sauce for an hour, grilled over hot coals for seven minutes and switched to indirect heat (covered) for 15.

Figured this was worth posting for anyone getting started jigging... Starting out I was almost always dropping the jig all the way to the bottom and then cranking up. I have since started to drop almost to bottom (say 20 feet above) and then crank up. It seems to be more productive and fish size seems to have improved. My thinking is that the trout laying on the bottom see the jig falling and then trying to flee them vs. un-naturally approaching them.
