Cayuga Lake out of Dean’s Cove 5/27


Guided a full day trip with Mark I. starting at around 8:30 am.  Yesterday some good thunderstorms rolled through the area.  The morning was cloudy and chilly.  I wasn’t sure what the bite would be like, but it wound up being very good throughout the day.  Mark wound up landing plenty of fish – 17 solid lakers up to around 28.5″.   We had plenty of fish in the 24″ range.  One live lamprey came up on a fish but wounding remains super low.  He kept three fish (two for himself and one for me) and one of the three was loaded with alewives.   Best bite for us was 50′ to 80′ FOW.  Boating/fishing pressure was very light today, as is generally the case leading into a holiday weekend.  The surface temperature was around 60 to 62 degrees.  It was fun fishing a lot of areas I hadn’t fished much since back when I lived in Trumansburg and used to launch out of here often.  The dock has been redone here and is much nicer than it used to be.

Mark hooked up!
