through the year, and the spring LOC derby has come and gone. Time
to practice for the fall deepwater challenge. The salmonoids will
be starting their push towards deeper water. Start looking in 60’
to 100’ of water or shallower wind pending.
thing about June is that every type of fish, as of June 21st,
is legal and able to be kept with a New York fishing license. The
opening day of bass fishing, being one of the most popular, draws
more people to the water than any other type of fish. For
largemouths, about any inland body of water, i.e., ponds, river,
canal and bays all hold largemouth bass in some form or another,
except for the private ponds on local golf courses and some
private owner ponds. The Irondequoit and Braddock Bays have some
of the large “hawg” style fish in Monroe County waters. Top water
baits will work well at many ponds and bays in the early to late
evenings. Spinner baits, fatraps and worms in the morning and
afternoons will bring them to the boat. It’s all in the wrist and
how thick the weeds are. Smallmouth bass also can be a lot of fun.
Although their range is not as wide, their numbers are great. The
Genesee River and the Erie Canal has a good population almost all
summer, along with catfish, walleye and pike. The largest numbers
of smallmouths are found in Lake Ontario anywhere east of the
Genesee River all the way to Sodus Bay and still some. A south
wind for more than 24 hours or more will bring the smallmouth’s
into shallow water 8 – 22 feet deep. This is a very good
opportunity for shore fishermen off the piers in Monroe County to
score bit. Summerville, Charlotte, Webster Park and Russell
Station are a few. Use of crawlers, crabs, shiners and tube baits
work best. Boaters can drift from inshore to deep water, when you
stop catching fish start the motor and move back to shallow water
and start again. With a north wind shore fishermen are out of luck
in the lake. Boaters start in 35 feet and drift in towards shore.
Bring shiners along when fishing a north wind and crawlers or tube
baits for late June to early July with a south wind. Either way,
try to fish as close to the bottom as possible without losing all
of your tackle.
bluegills and sunnies a small jig tipped with a waxworm or a spike
should keep the buckets full. In June, the walleye fishing should
have really started to pick up on Irondequoit Bay’s east shore on
worm rigs and stick baits trolled in the evening. For canal
walleyes a large jig head with a worm or crab on it. This method
also works in the Genesee River and it keeps you from losing too
much expensive tackle.
