Cayuga Lake out of Dean’s Cove 5/25


Got out with Andrew, Charlie and Eric for some laker jigging. Bait and plenty of fish still surround the perimeter of Cayuga Lake – esp. on the west shore. AM fishing was much slower for us than previous trips this week, but we wound up having a good afternoon bite. Fish ranged from around 25″ to 28″ for us. Bait moved in during the course of the day and by early afternoon baitfish were popping along the surface. Fish became more aggressive as the day went on.

A friend of mine reported trout chasing in his bass lures – so there are likely lakers in 20′ of water or less. We will try to fly-fish these fish here and on Seneca over the next week or two! I have purchased some new lines and deep sinking heads for this reason.
