Planer boards on Keuka?

Recommended Posts

Someone was up and down the East arm of Keuka most of the day Saturday running a planer board, dipsey, riggers, you name it.  Running the planer boards on the inside toward shore. Don't see many people running planer boards, we don't have brown trout to speak of, so I was thinking planer boards for bass?  Then this morning, I was jigging off a point in 85 FOW and there was a big splash near shore, very close to a boat lift. I tossed my jig over, and a decent laker nailed it on the sink. So maybe they were running the boards in close for lake trout?

 

If the skipper of that boat is reading, how did you make out?  Must have been out there 8-10 hours.

Wasn't you I saw then but thank you for the report.  I did well jigging on bottom in 75-105 FOW this past week. Autopsied a few fish and found nothing identifiable.

Do the rainbows and salmon range into the east arm of the lake?  Or do you need to go down into the main stem closer to H'sport?

I spent a good amount of time when I attended KC (early 2000's) trolling shallow on the East arm from Penn Yan to the college.  We would catch nice browns, salmon, lakers, big pickerel, and hefty smallies running tx6 planers and stickbaits.  Once caught a respectable salmon from shore on pt Nemo at the college  as well. The fish are around. Never ran into many ppl doing the same.  Focus on small points and creeks coming into the lake.

Lively,

 

Did the boat look like the one in my profile? Blue Crestliner.

Probably not. The boat I saw had a hard-top cabin which is not so common on Keuka.
