Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 7/14


Well I’m quite relieved to have just wound up a long run of trips. I plan on doing some fishing on my own this week and then the rest of the season will be broken up a bit more with a few days on and a few off. I haven’t fished a day on my own since the Memorial Day Derby! That’s a long time.

Here’s how things went today: Guided Brent and Garrison for a full day starting just after 6:15 am. We had pretty good laker action to start with 4 fish landed in relatively short order, then things slowed until around noon. At that time, the guys landed two more fish before we called it a day. Best two fish were a 28″+ laker that Brent caught that we kept and it weighed 8lbs 2 3/8 oz after I bled it out. We let go a fish in the 7lb range. The Salvation Army Derby was going on this weekend and we didn’t enter, so I knew it was inevitable that we’d manage a good fish or two. Hopefully someone will blow it out of the water with a 9 to 10lb plus fish and I won’t feel too bad! Lampreys weren’t bad today – just one came up. Depths we worked ranged from 75′ to 120′ with the best fishing from 75′ to 85′. Plenty of bait is around and there is a slight algae bloom taking place. Good day, but very hot out there.
