"Get Hooked on New York"

Chancing it at Chauncy Details
Name:Chancing it at Chauncy
Created By:nefisherman92
Details:Hoping to find that big slob again (but this time with my scale in hand), I set out for Whitehall early yesterday morning. I should have known something was wrong when I got close to the boat ramp and there were three trailered bass boats close behind. When I pulled into the lot, several boats were already there, with more on their way. Turns out someone decided this was a good time for a fishing tournament on Whitehall. With the wind already presenting challenges, I decided I should put my kayak in elsewhere. After some searching, I eventually ended up at Chauncy Lake. The wind still made working the shore tricky, and damn was it cold. But I did manage to catch some decent Pickerel and little dink Bass. I'll have to try this spot earlier in the morning, or in the late afternoon.

Bait Details:All morning chain pickerel were hitting my plastic lures, but not taking any hooks. One did manage to bite my power worm in just the right spot however, and gave a nice fight. After that I threw a newly acquired Rapala Husky Jerk around, and got an even nicer pickerel in return! If anyone wants that lure, it's still there, stuck in a tree branch.
Location Details:All of the pickerel were caught along the northern shoreline, which has some decent structure.
