A nice cool start to the morning with calm conditions here on Oneida Lake. We will stay mainly dry today on our way to a high of 80F with the wind just picking up a bit as the day goes on. It looks like tomorrow we will be dodging rain and storms for a good part of the day before things dry out a bit again on Sunday.
People are grabbing a ton of fish, both walleye and bass are hitting hard. Walleye fishing remains exceptional in the 32-40FOW range for those trolling, though we are getting reports of people jigging and doing well in those depths and shallower on bucktail jigs and sonars. Trolling speeds remain in the .8 to 1.1 range though we are getting plenty of reports from people running as low as .5. Colors remain the same, perch, purple, and metallic patterns.
Bass are hitting nicely on the eastern third of Shakleton Shoal, folks are using drop shots and poppers, blue and green colors but gold is your best friend right now. The evenings are reported as being a bit better than any other time. We also have good bass reports from Messenger Bay, north up to Messenger Reef, and up to Messenger Shoal. That activity has remained fairly consistent throughout the day.
