Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 6/5 + 6/6
6/5: Had some hot action in the AM on Tuesday with Jim and Jim S. really hammering lakers from around 6 am till 10 am. Fishing slowed after that with only a couple more fish to show when we quit around 2 pm. Most lakers were decent fish from around 23″ to 27.5″. Lampreys weren’t bad. Tons of bait was shallow and best laker action for us was from around 40′ to 75′ or so.
6/6: Guided Gary for a 1/2 day in the AM starting at 6. Fish appeared scarce on the depthfinder and we didn’t mark much bait. Gary managed to land 3 fish including one around 31″ that likely weighed close to 10lbs. We had one lamprey come up on a fish. Bait began showing up around 9am but the action didn’t pick up before we wrapped up around 10:30. Perhaps the afternoon bite was better – I don’t know, but it was a definite slowdown from the past two trips. Still a fun morning.
