6-25-16 honeoye fishing

Recommended Posts

Took the kids for our first ever trip to honeoye lake. What a beautiful place! We caught 3 large mouth early and then tried to find some "huge bluegills" we had a hard time finding big ones but caught caught a few keepers and by 9:00 we were swimming :) we will definitely be back!

Thanks to the people at the dock, and on LOU, that pointed us in the right direction.

I've fished Honeoye since the late 1960's. The lake has gone through some changes in regard to fishability and weeds. Used to be a salad bowl almost impossible to motor in (or even a rowboat!) because of the thick emergent weeds. A lot of that was cleared up when sewage lines went around the lake (used to be only leaky septic systems). But the warmwater fish have always been there. Tons of bass, mostly largemouths, with some big ones. Also there is some pretty good smallies and walleyes. We used to SLAM bustin' smallies with plastic grubs in the shallows under the docks and by the beach at the north (northwest) end on light-ultralight gear and 6lb test with 1/8th oz jigs. But the panfishing for crappie, gills, seeds, and rockies has always been pretty good. Those who target them can limit out on very decent coolers filled with panfish there. I like working the west shore down to around California point, but the panfish can be found anywhere and everywhere in the lake, along with largemouths. Pickerel and the occasional pike are there too. Great place (if there are not too many summer skiers and such buzzing around! :P ) to take the family for some relaxed and fruitful fishing day or night (eye's).
