Re: Anybody laker fishing yet?
You will start running out of time in the next few weeks....if we get a big warm push. 2 weeks ago was slow, but it has picked up. The lake has been tough for us to get on due to weather, but we have got a steady push of them when we can get out. Most in the mid-range size, 8 to 14 pounds. We have seen water temp at 47, but mostly in the 44-45 range (surface). There are also a few surprises around for this time of year.
They were on fire yesterday, but we missed a ton of hits. We had little to show for the day.
Hot lure has been spin-doctor and fly for us, but we get a little spoon bite. When you find them they are hot, but we have had to chase them around a bit. We run a couple of spoons up high to see if we can locate some pellet-heads, not no luck on that yet.
We get on the mountain top and start in the 45 range, and zig-zag back and forth out to deeper water.
This weekend looks like a bust. Good luck trying to jig for them, they don't seem to be isolated in one place. Ours have been very random, and don't seem to get a second on the next pass. We have been wandering aimlessly in and out of deep water.
To be honest, it is Lake O time if you want a mixed salad. It is worth the extra drive time to head from Olcott and Point Breeze. However, some of these North and Northeast winds have been trouble for pushing fish west.
My experience anyway, take it or leave it.
