St. Lawrence River: Plenty of pike were being caught of late, especially in Eel Bay. Bass are being found in deeper water now. Perch action has been spotty.
Black Lake: Richard at Chapman’s Sport Shop in Hammond reports bass action has been good, notably top-water action in the evenings. Pike are around but he’s hearing more bass stories than northern stories. Some walleye were being caught, and bluegills continued to hit well, although the size has often been lacking. But right now most of the attention has been focused on smallmouths.
