Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 9/23


Guided Jared and his buddy Chris today for a 1/2 day. I picked them up at Jared’s family’s place just S. of Dean’s Cove. The cold front bass/pickerel fishing we tried for around an hour and a half didn’t yield but one hit. I marked some fish in 50′ FOW and dropshotting yielded a dink smallmouth!

Laker jigging was better than I was expecting, with the guys landing 5 legal, albeit smaller (16″ to 23″) fish. A few others were missed/dropped, but I was pretty happy with the fishing. Around 85′ to 100′ was good. Plenty of fish were around in the area along with bait. Water temps were around 66.
