Overcast today but warmer with a high of 75F and light winds. A possible storm coming in around 3 or 4pm so keep your heads up. Saturday looks like the pick day of the weekend with mostly sun and favorable winds. Sunday may be breezy, we will be watching what that brings as it gets closer.
No update on the missing kayaker on Skaneateles Lake as the search effort continues.
Folks are finally cashing in on both ends of the lake following wind patterns and finding where schools of baitfish are with the Walleye not far from the big schools. The east end of the lake near Oneida Creek and the canal are continuing to produce well. Guys were using white, olive, black, and black and purple bucktails tipped with medium shiners and got into great numbers all week. The jig bite is still on sonars and raps. Perch colored sonars are doing well right now due to the eyes feasting on small perch schools. North Bay and Godfrey continue to be slower, but people are getting great numbers of perch in 18-22 feet of water throughout the lake. The Lewis Point area shore bite has been hot as well as the Messenger Bay area trolling during the day with more traditional colors beginning to take hold. The tournament guys did big numbers west and northwest of Chapman where the tournament was held last weekend and that pattern has continued. The mouth of Chittenango Creek has been producing both day and night using raps for bass and eyes. The Brewerton area is producing tons of pickerel as well.
From the Walleye Wednesday Crew:
We keep growing with the number of teams. We had 22 boats last night. A few more new faces this week yet again. It’s awesome to see us grow and keep the prize pools up there. Keep getting the word out there guys.
