Cayuga Lake out of Dean’s Cove 1/10


Got back out for some lake trout jigging with Jess. My goal was to work some areas that I usually don’t get a chance to fish during the dead of winter (the launch at Dean’s is usually iced-up). We worked south of the launch primarily on the west side of the lake. Surprisingly good numbers of lake trout were bunched up towards Sheldrake in around 100′ to 110′ of water. We found fish shallower and deeper. The usual white flukes fished on 1oz. jigheads worked pretty well and Jessica managed to land a couple nice fish – a 28″ and a 20″. Fish were chasing. Best fishing was during midday when the sun was shining. We found lakers around Long Point and north also. H2O levels were OK for winter launching and temps were around 40.
