Looks like mayfly larvae.......they hammer them when they emerge on that lake.


Rented a house up there last year over 4th of July week and there were huge hatches of those especially large hexagenia flies.  The fish were stuffed with them puking them all over the live well.  Very impressive bug population in that lake right now.  Seems like if they didn’t have them they’d be starving to death.

What’s a good way to rig them, drift with them?

Frogger, I have been dragging them behind a 1 oz bottom bouncer and either drifting or trolling.

For you guys who regularly fish Oneida.......... On Western Lake Erie, they throw weapon rigs with small crawler pieces during these hatches and catch fish. Ever try this on Oneida?

Lots of stuff out there on weapon rigs.

Makes sense. I think I’ll tie some up tonight. The Lake Erie boys always seem to be one step ahead.
