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.
Iplan on fishing Lake Ontario this week for some browns and maybe a bonus salmon. Also some Cayuga bass fishing – the pros haveprovided some inspiration.
