FALL BASS AND TROUT

Posted By Tom Melton, September 18, 2017

I did not get out this week as I was busy gearing up for full knee replacement surgery on Tuesday. Although I know this will mess up my fall fishing, hopefully it brings new life to my tired knees and allows me to fish more actively. On a positive note, fall bassing should continue to heat up, and before long the fall trout stockings will take place. For now, the best bet is carp or trout, especially the northern areas on the trout front.

From Ken Bliss I learned that the Wantagh Twin Lakes and Brady Park Lake (smaller Massapequa Reservoir) were fishing very well this weekend with both big largemouth bass and pickerel. Ken fished the early a.m. shift Sunday morning using topwater frogs for bass and Senko worms for pickerel.

From Steve Gilman I heard the pickerel action in Massapequa is on fire. While fishing Saturday, Steve had his largest pickerel ever, a fish pushing 5 pounds. That’s a big pickerel for our waters. On Sunday he had three, one of which was large as well, but not as big as the day before. All his action was on Buzzbaits and a Stanley Spinnerbait. The lake is very clean, so fish the remaining weeds.

Keith Delucia and I fished the Peconic River at Forge Pond on 916. Between us we had a dozen bass to 2 pounds, 4 pickerel to about a pound, and a 14 inch perch. The trick is to shoot the channel (cast up the main channel) in the river and find the pockets around the vegetation in the lake
