Otisco Lake Report

We had 15 boats in its Members Only Tournament on Otisco Lake, which was about half of the club membership. The fog wasn't there like we figured it was going to be at first light, and blast-off went on time. The sun turned out to last all day long with sunburns to prove it. Racoon eyes were in fashion today. The wind was non-existent in the morning, cranking up to around 7-10 mph, and even that was on-off-on-off all day. The weeds at the very north end of Otisco were mainly dead verified by the errant group of carp flopping around in the shallows. Very soupy. The south east end of the lake was the clearest, with weedlines visible to 10-12 feet. The lake side of the causeway section of the lake got hammered on all day. 1st place went to Giamei and Ventura with 15.49 lbs, and a new smallie Big Bass Bounty record was set by Raul Vargas with a 4.64 lb. smallmouth! Congrats to all you guys! There were alot more smallies at the weigh-in than was expected. There was no consistency on where, when or how any of the bass were caught. Most members said that there wasn't much of a pattern. At the moment the results for this tournament can be seen at the very bottom of the "Tournaments" page, under "Otisco Lake Members Only Results". SEE YOU AT SODUS BAY!
