Lake George 1st timer

6 posts in this topic

I am heading up to lake George later this month, girl freinds parents just got a place there. I have heard it is mostly a bass lake but I would like to find some eyes or some crappies. It looks to be mostly a bowl with one good mid lake hump. I am looking for any pointers I can get, looking to take her old man out and show him some good fishing. I see a couple of inlets that might look good if they are still running with lack or rain. Are there any hot colors or lures for lake George? I understand if you don't want to post top secret info here so if you let me know I can add an email or cell number. Looking for a better understanding of the lake.

We had good luck all of June and July pulling chartruse spinners on the south side in 12-20 feet of water. We caught a little of everything,pike,crappies,bass,walleyes, and pan fish. It was always a good time for me and my 2 sons, aged 11 & 13. Things slowed in August so we switched to crank baits and had some luck. We haven't been there in 3 weeks so I can't tell you how the bite has been lately. We didn't target bass, but it seemed the guys who did had pretty good luck all over the lake. Good luck.

It's for sure a good bass lake seen a few fish over 20in this year and only fished it twice.

Thanks guys, do you like minnows, worms or leechs on your spinners. Any particular cranks or color of cranks. I heard the water has a little bit of a brown tint to it.

Mostly crawlers and some on leeches. Perch colored crank baits. Let me know how you did, we will be there the weekend of September 29 & 30. School and the boys sports really mess up my fall fishing and hunting opportunities!

Not problem, we are going up 22 and 23rd. DO you ever drift with a jig and minnow,leech or worm and bounce it off the bottom. I was thinking more around the deep hole and may be up some of the steep drops on the north end of the lake. What are the weeds like in the lake? Lilly pads? Deep weeds? Cabage etc..

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
