CONESUS LAKE — Over 100 boats awaited launch on opening day for pike and walleye, but the cool water kept more fish in the water then in the boats.
Two fisherman with success, Matt Rider from Port Gibson and Anthony Shideler from Honeoye Falls, were on the water at first light and fishing in 5 to 15 feet of water with brown and orange crank baits. They landed several bass 2-5 lbs. range, 3 Northern Pike 3-7 lbs. and a wonderful walleye (see photo).
"Despite the cold weather we kept casting, but that proved to be the ticket for success." Matt Rider said as they wrapped up their successful day.
Bass season opens up on the 3rd Saturday in June.
