Pending State Record

I took my daughters for ice cream after closing the shop and saw a fellow fisherman. I asked how they did today, I never imagined what would come next. “State record”, he said. I was amazed when I saw the mass of this fish. Looking for a place weigh the beast we had to open back up, no way was I passing up this opportunity. When we put the fish on the 6’ picnic table it took up 3/4 of it. It was 17” tall over a legal Walleye, it’s just crazy.

Congrats to Jason Bair of Macedon, N.Y. on catching this 36.03 lbs. & 42 3/4” Sheepshead. In process for a new state record and second biggest in the world.

Bass season has opened with an abundance of giants and more than enough Bass for everyone. Anglers are fishing weeds and shoals for Large and Small Mouth Bass. Anglers using top waters, crank baits and jigs.

The Walleye bite has been very good with Oneida Lake Walleye Wednesday tournament producing fish on a weekly basis. Jigging bite will be slowing down. More effective tactics this time of year will be trolling and we have seen a lot of suspended fish so don’t shy away from trying new technics. When you are not catching walleye in deep water try fishing the weeds. Casting worm harnesses and crankbaits can be very productive.
