Not been out, but thinking of hitting mid lake @ the public launch near Hartson S Gully area. Looking to fish a  break near deeper water, put flags out shallower and fish out deeper?
Willing to share info.

I have been working in the area so I stopped by long point for a couple hours...Marked NO fish in the twenty s, thirties & forties. Dropped raps,spoons & even mud bugs at least for a perch bite. NOTHING -zero fish.

i guess the panfish all move to the north end this time of year. we picked up one rock bass off a point. i have not found anything other than some random pike. a few marks in the morning and evening that could have been eyes but we havnt spotted any perch or gills. ive fished the drop offs, points and open water ???

4 years ago we were fishing the south end and some guys kid jigged a7/8 pounder out of 40feet. It was really random. I’ve targeted them dozens of times with no success. Open and hard water, they’re really tough to catch in Conesus. I gave up trying.
This sport takes a certain amount of character in a man that we all should respect and take pride in.

That’s was me haha. Definitely random. Marked a fish up 15ft off the bottom and reeled up to it and it hit a gold Swedish pimple. Fought like a boot coming up.

so it seems there really isnt a pattern, depth or even area to focus on. im gunna continue to try and catch one til the ice is gone. we have been on the lake 12 years and ive seen 2 walleye caught in the spring on the same day by my buddy in 4ft of water on small suckers.....

Silver and Conesus have real  nice size walleyes and I have caught them Spring and into Summer, but forget it when it comes to Winter.  I have tried both lakes over the years and know of other walleye guys that have given it a try and not much luck.  We now head to Honeyoe, Chautauqua or Oneida

There were 3 days about 5 years ago my brother and I thought we had figured out something with Conesus walleye where we caught a handful of good-sized fish but in subsequent years we've tried the same place at the same time using the same techniques and have not gotten one.

They are not easy to pin point due to the fact that they chase Alewife around the lake.

That's how Conesus goes. While open water fishing I have had plenty of times where you hit one, focus on that spot, and that presentation and you can hammer them. Come back the next day and you can't get a bite. I've seen it during the day time, and after dark. Pretty much if you can find them feeding they are catchable, but that is the trick, finding them.
