Cayuga Lake out of Dean’s Cover 5/16 – 5/17


5/16 AM: Got out with Stu and his GF Shannon for around 6 hours. We had some halfway decent action around Long Point. Fishing was steady and quite a few fish were missed/dropped. 3 nice lakers were landed up to around 28″ if my memory serves me right. We tried the Silos area and found bait there as well as some decent fishing.

5/16 PM: Got out with Ed and his nephews Tom and Chris (from Fla.) We tried different areas without much happening. We also searched the depths – finding a few chasing fish, but nothing aggressive. Again, the Silos area came through with some very good to excellent fishing on nice lakers averaging around 25″. We had two doubles going which made for some excitement. A fun laugh-fest was had by all! Very good fishing…

5/17: Guided Cy and Scott for a 1/2 day today. NHL Fans might know Scott (Stevens) – he has quite a few “Greatest Hits” videos on YouTube. He’s currently an assistant coach of the NJ Devils and played for a few different teams, managing to win a few Stanley Cups as a player with the Devils. Just a tremendous hockey career. Check this out for more: I’m glad I was able to get him into some fish! 😉

Scott has a place on a lake up in Canada, and Cy – being a friend of his, wanted him to see the technique. We started at Long Point without much happening. We made a quick move up to the Silos area and started finding some fish. Fishing wound up being quite good and the guys landed 10 nice lakers to around 28″. I’m looking forward to hearing how Scott makes out on the lakers up in Canada and in NJ on Round Valley Reservoir. Nice guy and a fun trip.
