Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 8/19


Guided Gary for around 6 hours starting just after 6:45 pm. The laker bite was predictably tough with conditions that clouded up quickly this AM. Gary had some good opportunities, dropping 5 to 6 nice fish. He did manage to land a couple solid lakers up to 29.5″. I felt that the bite was improving throughout the early PM and the afternoon could be hot fishing, but he was satisfied so we called it a day.

Fronts, sun conditions, wind and various seasonal factors all affect lake trout (and other salmonids) differently. Paying attention to these conditions are key factors in patterning these fish and predicting success.

I plan on fishing Lake Ontario this week for some browns and maybe a bonus salmon. Also some Cayuga bass fishing – the pros have provided some inspiration.
