Dont have a thermometer, but it definitely feels warmer than last week. I would say mid 40s.

What lakes do you fish on

 

Got a place on De Ruyter lake, but plan on fishing Oneida, Onandagha, Otisco and any other suggestions.

Nah, the only time I night fish is during summer heat waves. I've tried, but no luck. But during heat waves, I caught a lot. All big too, rarely anything small.

Hoping to pick up my boat this next week, nice 17.5 tracker. Going to try Canandaigua as soon as I can. Caught a nice smallmouth off the pier in Canandaigua today before work on a jerk bait after 2 hours of dragging jigs, and lipless cranks. Windy and overcast.

Any more luck upstate anyone? I haven't been out in a few days. Weather hasn't exactly been ideal. Hopefully I can get out tomorrow for a couple. At least test out some new gear.

I was out last Sunday at Honeoye Lake, was a cold and rainy morning but was able to catch little over 20 bass and one baby pike.  Caught them on jerkbait and lipless crankbait.  Nothing of any great size, this was my best of the day.

I hope to hit Silver Lake this weekend if the weather somewhat cooperates.  But I struggle there and usually end up just catching pike.

 

I'm a newbie poster here, but been lurking and learning from this site since I got hooked on bass fishing last year.

Apparently my hint was too subtle, I said that so you would PM me some hot spots to fish. :smile7:

 

In my complete newbie opinion, I think I struggle there because the times I've been there the weed growth was pretty heavy and my trolling motor couldn't cut it so I ended up fishing the outside weed edge.  And that seems to be where the pike were hanging out.  I've got a new motor this year, with a little more thrust and hopefully a better weedless prop so I can fish into the weeds and the docks.  Although I don't think weeds will be an issue this weekend.

I fish these same lakes.  Try the North end of Skaneateles.  Great fishing.

The whole lake is a hot spot...............or not. It's very moody, like all grass cover based lakes. I have honestly caught 5 and 6lb fish in just about every place imaginable on that lake, on just about every technique or bait I use. Timing, timing, timing, and again.....timing is everything there. When they are not biting , expect to go FOREVER with out a bite, especially this time of year....instead of there being wads of fish in a nice thick milfoil bed, they are spread out, in small groups, and the are always roaming around. There was a stretch I fished today where I caught a limit of 2lbers, a 3.5, and a 5.5 that's sucked so far this year, and probably will suck some more, but today we happened to all be there at once. LOL

Thanks Farmer, I am hoping I know a little more than I did last year.  Hoping to see if I can put that "book" knowledge to practical knowledge this Saturday.  Nice job on catching a limit today!

Nice job on catching those 4 bclark!

 

Hit Silver Lake today.  Much slower action than Honeoye last week but better quality fish.  Between me and my fishing partner we boated 5 largemouths, 5 pike, a bull head and a keeper walleye.  Jerkbaits did pretty much all the catching.  Gonna take a few more cracks at Silver Lake this year to see if I can figure it out.  Best fish of the day:

Hit Conesus today. A tough first outing on the boat, with heavy wind and stupid me forgot to replace the battery to my wireless foot pedal for my trolling motor, so I was stuck anchoring and fishing spots. Caught one nice smallie -- 3.8, on a jerk bait. Not another nibble in 3 hours. Good to get the boat on the water though.

Well look at that.....I know that spot well :whistle: Don't make me give you a talking to about how to crop photos...LOL. Sooooo.....how many jerkbaits did you lose today, it's not really Silver lake fishing at it's finest unless you have donated hardware. As for me..............  I realized the opening day pike/walleye tournament was today so I stayed home and out of the way, I don't know how busy it was, but in the past it's drawn 50-60 boats, and on a lake that small it gets a little crowded, sorry I forgot to warn you about that, but you look like you did ok. I imagine most of the armada was at either the north or south end drowning shiners under under bobbers, I fish in my fair share of crowds during the bass tournament season, I can take one for the team once in a while. I'll be there tomorrow tho....and by the looks of it, freezing.

Great to see the Northeast finally thawing out and coming alive. Took the boat out yesterday and the water temp said 56-57º, but we found a cove that was 58º. I was very surprised to see the water that warm already. Ton of baitfish jumping and the bass chasing them. They were a little too shallow to chase with the boat, as they were in 18" or less of water. Marked a lot of fish in 5-10' down in the weeds as well, but couldn't get them to cooperate. I did manage to catch this big girl from the bank on Friday though. 18.5" and not weighed but somewhere in the 4-4.5 pound range. Just an awesome looking fish. Red & black grass jig, just shaking it in place. Works wonders.
