Launched solo out of Treman early Sat am. Set up running bright sticks and a purple alpha alewife in 13'. The spoon fired twice off a shallow rigger before a stick even moved so I pulled the sticks and ran three FLT aa purples, that proved to be a good choice. Lots of small salmon with one that broke 19". Lost a really nice salmon and got a 4.5 lb Brown to the net. That was all before 8am. Pulled lines and headed to Laker land in front of salt plant, not even one pass and had three in the boat, while reeling in the last fish my rigger fired and had my fourth ( released to fight another day). Hot ticket was a iron duke fly not sure of the name with some green and yellow glow, and the gold n purple " dressed to kill"

I've shortened my fly leads down to 22" and that seems to be the ticket. Then again maybe the bite is just picking up, lol. The Lakers were full of sculpin or gobies, hard to tell so digested. The meat is dark orange and very tasty! See you FLTA guys Sunday at Keuka...

Nice job and nice report John... Good news, I got the materials for the All Dressed Up Fly so will have them on the website soon.. I had a crazy weekend getting the family cottage open and docks in the water this weekend and Mother's Day today so I didn't get a chance to fish this weekend but hopefully will be out there both days next weekend.. Definitely see you at Keuka Sunday tho..

 Gobies.. The lake is infested with them these days, and from what I understand, all the predators are eating them.. Might change the habits of lakers a bit, not being forced to  stay close to the alewives.. I also wonder if the lakers might taste better  as time goes on, as they will be eating less of those little oily Alewives... bob

By clean them right do you mean bleeding them out soon after you catch them or something different?

I will release the big ones and eat the 18-22" ers. I filet them with care to not let the guts touch the meat, rinse my board a lot and keep them ice cold prior to fileting.

All my laker are coming from Lake Superior, but You still have to get the ALL the fat off. I also rinse my fillets in bowl or sink until the water no longer clouds up. Put in fridge overnight and rinse again eat or freeze. Our redfin's are almost as orange as salmon.

      I have this beautiful secluded field corner, surrounded by oak trees and even has a two producing apple trees on the edge. It is a perfect transition zone out of heavy cover and before hardwoods. Most of the field is CRP and just one little 1/8 acre corner is mowed down for that perfect dusk shot.    So how do I get a stand up? Ah! There is the perfect oak! About half way up into setting the sticks, I notice the tree is wrapped in posion ivy. It's ok, I have gloves and pants and long s

    • Otisco conditions

      The heavy rain here has the lake over the docks and lots of debris.  In addition to that heavy weedcutting efforts this week have massive weed mats floating in many areas.  To top it off bait action and subsequent predatory action was shut down last night from what I saw.  Tiger fishing is still good though.  If you are looking for walleye I'd wait a few days.

    • Fishing conditions

      Generally speaking.  After a stong wind and waves as was seen the other day.  What to expect once things settle down by Tuesday.  It is normally hard to find good temps in close and thus have to run further offshore.  I know if likely depends on how bad the winds were but just looking for general what you usually see after this so we can plan a few days to fish accordingly in our 20’er  thanks  Mark
