Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 9/1 AM


Guided John, John Sr. and their friend Eric for a 1/2 day starting around 7:15 am. We had top-notch jigging for the first hour or so then a slow, steady pick for the rest of the AM. Around 9 fish were landed if I remember correctly with three of those being wild. We had a couple in the 28″ range too. Fishing remains pretty good lake-wide. Angling Zone friend Dave was up here last week and did well.

Some people are surprised that the fishing is still good up here. There can be good to excellent lake trout action from Long Point to Levanna all year long. I like to fish out of Myers (and enjoyed launching at Taughannock when I lived in Trumansburg) due to the close proximity of those launches to where I live. Many fish migrate down the lake to Taughannock and beyond to spawn. But not all spawn down there and many fish won’t spawn this year at all anyways. Usually the majority of bigger fish are found south (i.e. from Sheldrake south and King Ferry south) this time of year but we had some beauties up north today.

Fun day and we did best in 85′ to 100′ FOW today. It was windy too!
