Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 12/14


Got out for around 1/2 day worth of jigging. The winds were gusting fairly strong out of the west when I started just after noon. Good numbers of lakers range from 135′ to 150′ off of Aurora. I was impressed with the fishing today, especially given the windy semi-harsh conditions. I landed 5 lakers including a 28″ and 29″ fish. Larger fish are post-spawn and hadn’t been feeding much yet. A 22″ fish I kept was fairly full of bait. One large fish had been hit by numerous lampreys, but the other fish landed were all clean, with one healed wound on the 28″ fish. I did mark some bait today around 130′. Launching was a cinch at Long Point. Water temp remains around 46, though I’d expect 45 this coming week. I was the only boat that I could see out today in this part of the lake. Fish were fighting good and came on 1 1/2oz jigheads with white swimbaits.
