January 2017 Update
Winter is just beginning and the bay has ice. As we head into winter, I have been contemplating what I can do to make fishing in Sodus better. Sodus Bay is a great place to boat, dock and fish, but what it severely lacks is communication between fisherman. I have been fishing this lake for 13 years, and have fished out of 3 different ports. I have come to realize that fishing is better in other ports because there are more boats and MUCH better networking between boats. Sodus Bay anglers can do better!
I always admired the website “At The Oak”. It was a great resource for the fishermen of another port that I frequent, Oak Orchard. This site was tremendously helpful to me when I first started traveling to that area about 10 years ago. It had updated information about what folks were catching and where, which gave a starting point for us “weekend warriors.” I don’t want people to tell me exactly what to do… I just want a general idea of WHAT is being caught, and in the case of salmon, a general idea where (out deep, near shore, etc).
