Keuka Trolling Spoon Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Planning to get back in to trout fishing the finger lakes after a several year hiatus and was hoping to get some recommendations on some good trolling spoons to start with?

Mainly Keuka, but may bounce around to Canandaigua, Cayuga, and potentially Seneca. Lakers, Browns, Landlock, Rainbows would be the target.

For Seneca a lighter presentation has been working well for me on the landlocked salmon.  Have not targeted lakers.  Smaller spoons (under 3") fire tiger, mixed veggies kevorkian, chicken wing, etc, 10lb  fluorocarbon leader, 40 to 65 ft down over 350- 500 f.o.w.

For Keuka lakers, the laker taker flutter spoons work good. They have a sharp bend at the end for more action. Troll them slow at about 1.8-2.2

Fished Keuka couple times this summer, seems fish are on bottom. Troll spoons within 10-15ft off bottom worked best for us.

Keuka this week has been hitting on frog greens and yellows, also watermelon has been hit. Today however the bite was slow so I swapped out to green and black UV Dots 2 face and things picked up.  Be sure to hit up fishy business to get some good tips!  I have been here on Keuka all week and the bite has been 6am to 8am with a bunch small lakers to show for it.

Great tip to check with Fishy he always knows what is going on there and he has all the right tackle in his shop to get the job done.:smile:

I had the best luck stacking at 75 with spin doctors and some luhr jenson silver 00

flashers at 65.

+1 for Fishy - plus you have to get the early bite.......the tourist season is in big time......boat traffic starts before 9am.
