Cayuga Lake out of Myers 12/13


Guided Terry and his son Derrick for 1/2 day starting around 12:40 pm. The target was salmon with pike as a back up. The original plan was to start early, but we had to change it. I had a lot of trepidation about this trip due to the weather forecast – it was perfect for laker jigging, but not salmon or pike. We decided to give it a try anyways.

We gave the salmon about 2 hours with no sign of them. Pike didn’t go much better, though Derrick had a hit and stung one for a second. Water temps are around 45/46. My buddy Mike jigged lakers further north around Levanna and had some very good fishing down 120′ to 140′. Derrick has a place on the lake and the guys should be able to put some of the tactics we worked today to good use in the future.
