The water is really still too cold here for good bass fishing, but I tried anyway in a Lake Ontario Tributary west of Rochester, NY, for an hour or so after work this evening. I’m ashamed to admit that I failed… All I caught was a large yellow perch and this dink brown trout…


I had to "settle" for this brown trout because I couldn't catch a bass today.

Lesson learned: You can catch anything on a 3″ Gitzit tube! :D

Fellow Western NY Kayak Fishing Association member Andrew Zioto provided an assist in helping me to land this one and managed to catch a nice smallmouth bass and brown trout.
