2 of us hit Keuka jigging yesterday also. Checked out the very north end (Branchport) early. Not much there. Last year starting in early October the bait, then the LT moved into the shallower water (65-90 fow) at the north end. In the month of October boated anywhere from 12 to 26 LT on 5 trips. LT not there yet though. Moved to tip of the bluff. Boated 11 LT between 9:30 and noon (90-130 fow). Very little wind and a beautiful day. Leaves just starting to change. Can not beat Keuka in October (mighty tasty fish biting, leaves showing all kinds of color, mostly fishermen on the lake, life is good). Normal white ice tube with treble hook adaptation did the damage. All 6 fish gutted were females with eggs. Add me on to the list of guys not unstrapping the back of the boat before launching.
