We are watching a severe line of storms to our west due to hit this afternoon. Make sure you are off the water as this is expected to bring high winds and create dangerous conditions on Oneida Lake. Expecting this weather to hit between 1 and 2pm, this is a fast-moving storm so don’t cut it close. Guys are still getting walleye deep, with increasing success with sonars, bucktail jigs, and jigging raps. Still, others are trolling to grab them, more traditional colors are beginning to take hold as the lake has finally warmed up a bit. Trolling speeds are still slow, but have picked up a bit.
No swimming at Sylvan Beach this weekend due to a lifeguard shortage. Also, expect increased patrols over the holiday weekend, so do a quick check to make sure your equipment is up to date.
There was another great turn out tonight. We had 19 boats again tonight. A few more new faces this week again. It’s awesome to see that many teams come out to have a great night of fishing. Still looking to grow and average 20-25 boats a week.
