Cayuga Lake 8/12 midday


Did a last minute guide trip after getting a call from Erin last night.  I had a trolling motor issue on Saturday and dropped off my Terrova at Boats Unlimited out in Utica Monday.  My August is so busy I probably won’t have much time to fish on my own.  Anyways I agreed to take Erin out with her son Noah starting at 11 am.

Fishing was slow for the first hour or so but then picked up.  They winded up landing 4 lakers to 27″ before wanting to head in after getting a bit of sun (it was hot out as well when the clouds were covering the sun.)  All in all a fun short day.  Noah’s prior biggest fish was around a 3lb pickerel – now he has landed a couple 5lb+ trout.  Erin’s best fish was probably around 8lbs.  The boat traffic was light and the water clarity is excellent.  Beautiful day to be out!
