Just got back from Canandaigua. Water temps were around 65.  There are scattered small schools of perch up at the north end.  Nothing of any size. Most of my fish were around 9"  Just head out to the middle and drift around 13-14'. 

   If anyone wants to know where I was exactly, look for the balloon.  He went right over me.

Nice bucket Dan. Wont be as much traffic in a couple weeks. Ive  had the balloons float by me too. Fun to watch. Try down towards the Yacht Club on the East side.

Found these in 50' of water on one of the eastern Fingers. The smallie coughed up an 8" perch next to the boat. Caught several in 5-10' of water too Saturday but marked fish on the way off the lake in 50' and went back yesterday to see if they were present in numbers. Thank god for spot lock and the 72" shaft because it was rocking. No jumbos but 10-11" fish middle of the day.

Im using my Minn Kota  motor with spot lock so even in 1-2 waves my bait was straight down or casting  behind the boat dragging was easy with a 3/8 ounce cylinder weight. I buy them in bulk from drop zone baits. Braid is almost a must to me w 10# fluoro leader. I use a really small barrel swivel between braid and leader usually or double uni knot.

Water temp on the lake I'm hitting dropped to 60 degrees and fish moved into 25-30' but still chewing. 50 in a few hours yesterday afternoon. Size is going up a little too.
