Recommended Posts

This is my 3rd year bring my fishing boat up to for our annual (36) family vacation week on Keuka Lake! We had some great weather, delicious local foods and some great fishing! 

 

As usual I stopped up at Fishy Business and picked up a few spoons, advice on where to fish as well as my purchase from last year that he had still waiting for me that I left accidentally while loading firewood. Thanks Gerald! If your fishing Keuka make sure you stop up and get some honest advice and pick up some tackle from fishy! That watermelon northern king was HOT! Thanks again 

 

I fished out in front of the old green barn by the bluff for 4 mornings from 530am to 8:30am in various depths but the best was in 110 fow.  The troll was really slow at 1.7 mph and the thermocline was at 60 feet.   We marked a-lot of bait which after cleaning a few lakers  for breakfast ended up being tiny perch.  

 

Last year we didn’t mark any bait so this was good but I would of like to see more diverse bait fish and not the perch.  

 

Running that slow allowed me to run 2 cowbell rigs down low just 5 foot of the bottom and then set the upper 4 rods at 35 and 55 feet down. Didn’t have any luck in the under 55 foot column even though we were marking fish there. 

 

Our best spoons were custom copper UV Reel Rage spoons that were painted and shipped super quick (thanks Scott) on the 5 color led core. We left them on both side all week and went 16/24 and a small mouth on those alone which would of made for a great week. We also brought in Thanks Brian at Ketchum Fish Charters for the led core suggestion. I honestly wouldn’t of brought those rods if you didn’t suggest it.. 

 

The watermelon norther king UV was also hot all week set at 40 feet down stacked bring in at least 2 lakers every trip 

 

The hammerhead aluminum watermelon UV cowbells with the gambler watermelon glow and one I made my self were on fire all week  ring in 4 lakers per trip easy..

 

I also hooked up with tenatureboy and shared some intel as he was out on the bluff too. Hope mine was helpful.. yours was.. thanks..

 

Thanks for all the advice it made for a great time..

:yes: Looks like you had a hell of a good vacation Anthony. Shows you can still have a lot of fun out there, and Fishy is always helpful and has all the right stuff at his shop:smile:
