Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 9/27


Guided Jim and Eileen for a 1/2 day this AM starting around 7:45. I picked them up at their rental cottage near Kidders. Lakers were around, but in a negative mood for the most part. We had a few hits and Jim and Eileen each landed a fish – one around 24″ and one around 27″. Plenty of bait is around. Laker temps south of Sheldrake were at around 115 FOW, north of the point they were at 85! Water temp was 65/66. Fish hit Shakers/Swim Fish in white and white/chart.

Even with slow fishing on Cayuga, a jigging trip is never a bad idea if you haven’t done it. The technique is well-worth learning and will pay lifelong dividends.
