Long Island wakes up...finally!

Recommended Posts

Went out on Lake Panamoka on Tuesday and slammed 'em! We finally had a couple of nice days in a row, after 8 straight days of rain, and I took full advantage, spending almost 5 hours in the canoe. Though I lost count, I must have caught nearly 20 bass, and maybe lost another 10 more through-out the day, not to mention 2 nice perch and 2 fair pickerel. Best part was just being out there, but a close second was the action. I only used 2 baits all day, a watermelon senko, which didn't work that well, and a watermellon tube, which was deadly. Both were t-rigged with 1/4 bullet, but when I changed the tube to a 1/8 sinker, the productivity increased dramatically. I can't say there was any pattern to the depth I fished; I caught 'em in 2-4 foot of water, and 10-15 as well (the lake doesn't get much deeper).

Lucky for me this is a privately owned lake (the only one in NY, I'm told), and the game warden was nowhere to be found, seeing as the season is closed from May 1st to June 1st. (I had to look it up in my book when I got home...I originally thought it was the 15th to the 15th...oops).

Maybe there's some other Long Island "hot spots" coming on now.  Anyone have any thoughts there?
