Cayuga Lake 7/2 – 7/4


7/2: Guided Sue and John for the full day. I picked them up from the Silver Strand Bed and Breakfast off Sheldrake Point and we headed towards AES. Fishing was sort of slow to start with 2 lakers landed and a lot of chasers and missed hits. Action stayed a bit slow, then picked up with a vengeance around 11 or 12 noon. Around 10 fish total were landed. It was a fun trip with a lot of good and not-so good jokes flying from bow to stern!

7/3: Guided Scott out of Myers Point for the full day starting just after 6 am. He had good to excellent laker jigging in the AM with a bonus 23″ landlocked salmon landed. Fishing slowed for a little while mid-AM but then picked back up again before we called it quits around 3 pm. 65′ to 95′ was best.

7/4: Guided Ken and Nick for the full day out of Long Point starting at 6 am. We fished till 2:30 pm. Action was slow for the first 1/2 hour as we checked different areas for fish. The west shore near Dean’s Cove proved productive and we also had some action on the east shore. 14 solid lakers to 31″ were landed. 4 to 5 lampreys came up on fish, but overall the laker condition was good. Good numbers of small salmon also chased the jigs around. Muggy and hot day out there, but good fishing. Ken’s been going out with me since my 1st or 2nd year and it was nice to see him again.
