Cayuga Lake out of Dean’s Cove 5/1


Guide trip with Ari and Jason today. Although the weather was looking good for a change things got off to a slow start. We checked various depth ranges from around 60′ out to 150’+. We marked scattered fish in 85′ to 100′ and out in the 130’and deeper range. Some fish were suspended. Fish just activated in the mid-morning and we were able to land 7 nice fish including one unclipped wild one and a bunch of hefty stockies. They ranged from 25″ to 29″. We released the wild one and one other. The kept fish were LOADED with baitfish! Just tons of alewives. These fish are feeding aggressively and this fishing should only improve. The meat on one of the lakers was a bright orange – very nice color! Water level is high but receding. The surface temps are around 41.
