Cayuga Lake 9/11 – 9/13


Did some bass fishing on 9/11 out of Dean’s. I tried areas I don’t fish much and had OK fishing on scattered largemouths running around 2lbs. each. Fish ranged from 8′ to 17′ of water. Crankbaits and tube jigs did the trick. Deep cranking is producing fish north of Dean’s Cove.

On 9/12 AMI guided Joe and Joe Jr. for 1/2 day. We had good laker action near Taughannock on fish running up to over 11lbs. Best action was mid-AM. 85′ to 100′ was best. Fish are still feeding.

9/13 PM: Guided Richard and Tiernan for 1/2 day starting at noon. Fishing was OK, not easy but not terrible. Richard had the hot hand and landed 4 nice fish, including two 28″ers. Tiernan dropped what appeared to be a good fish. We kept a couple and they were stuffed with fresh alewives.
