Cayuga Lake out of Myers 8/30


Guided “Pepperidge Farm Tom” today. The man works at one of my favorite food manufacturers. I’ve never experience a Milano still warm from the oven, but he has! Fishing started out slow when I picked Tom up at Taughannock around 7 am. Cold front, bluebird conditions with a south wind. He had a few hits but no hookups. Thank goodness we were doing a full day trip, because the fish didn’t really get on the feed until around 12:30 pm for us. His first two fish were landlocked salmon – one around 16″ and one around 14″. A cool catch, but not what we came for. The next three were lakers – a couple 25″ers and one smaller fish. Last fish of the day was a 22″ salmon that grabbed near the surface not far from Taughannock. Nice to see all the salmon around! All fish released today.

An Angling Zone friend caught some nice perch in around 15′ to 20′ of water today on worms dropshotted. Good numbers of sublegal bass were in the mix, so with some luck maybe we’ll see some improved smallmouth bass fishing down the line. Fun day and gorgeous weather!
