Cayuga Lake Dean’s Cove 4/17


Had some very good to excellent action today guiding Eric. We did a full day trip and within an hour or so he was into some lakers. The fish were quite aggressive in the AM – I’d see 2 or more fish shooting off the bottom to chase his jig. He landed 8 beauties – all but one were 27″ to 28″ lakers! Baitfish were suspended in around 40′ of water. We caught our lakers from around 135′ to 165′ today. Action was good all day long, with the last fish landed about 20 minutes before calling it a day. A lot of fish were lost and hits missed as well, but given how deep we were fishing – it’s not unexpected. H2O remains around 39 degrees. A few fish appear to be moving shallower.
