16-year-old Tanner Mayger was staying with his granddad in Lake placid when he caught this 7-pounder while flipping a 3/4-ounce black and blue jig. The catch was Tanner's first using the flipping technique.

With afternoon showers cooling off the water temperature, fishing is certainly improving on all the major lakes in the Lake Placid area.

Lake Huntley is rebounding with bass catches exceeding 5 pounds being caught in the morning and the afternoon using top water and spinner baits. On Lake Placid and Lake June the quality numbers of fish are being caught in the deeper water, from 18- to 25-feet depths using worms 10 inches and longer, and also using creature baits such as brush hawgs with the color being black and watermelon seed.
