Buckhorn Lake:

Clear waters, hidden predators – Buckhorn Lake is a battleground for those seeking the thrill of the catch. Equip yourself with nothing less than the meanest soft plastic baits and topwater lures. Dive into the chaos with plastic worms and creature baits, taunting both largemouth and smallmouth bass. But if you crave heart-pounding strikes, unleash the fury with topwater poppers and frogs when the sun beats down.

Pigeon Lake:

Enter the domain of giants with Pigeon Lake, a challenging terrain teeming with underwater titans. Arm yourself with the heavy artillery – large jerkbaits, swimbaits, and spinnerbaits. Dare to face off against the muskie that patrol the weed beds and drop-offs. But beware, for walleye lurk in the depths, waiting to pounce on your crankbaits and jigs.

Chemong Lake:

Prepare for a showdown in the diverse waters of Chemong Lake, where shallow and deep hide a variety of adversaries. Dominate the bass population with crankbaits, jerkbaits, and the deadliest soft plastic worms. Navigate the treacherous underwater landscape of rocks and weeds, where only the boldest thrive. When it's panfish you seek, finesse is the name of the game – small jigs, soft plastics, and live bait will make you a force to be reckoned with.

General Tips for the Tri-Lakes:

  1. Conquer the Seasons: Become a master of the elements – adapt your strategies to the changing seasons. Spring, summer, fall, winter - each presents its own challenge, and only the fearless prevail.

  2. Rule of Chaos: In murky waters, let your bait stand out. Bright, bold, and contrasting colors are your weapons of choice. In clear waters, go stealth with natural tones – surprise your prey with an unexpected assault.

  3. Anarchy Intel: Stay on the edge with up-to-the-minute fishing reports and connect with the renegades who've conquered these waters before. Knowledge is power; use it to dominate the untamed Tri-Lakes.

Gear up, thrill-seeker. The Tri-Lakes are calling, and only the toughest will emerge victorious. With these badass baits, you're set to conquer the unknown. Release the beast within, and let the Tri-Lakes witness the rise of a new angling legend.
