Cayuga Lake out of Myers 9/13 AM
Guided long time client Dave and his friend Brian, who brought along his 9 year old son Evan for a 1/2 day of laker jigging. Barney's/Bear's fall derby was underway but the guys chose not to enter. Fortunately it didn't hurt us today.
I've had a couple slow reports from various parts of the lake, but slow fishing didn't befall us today. We had a good steady bite of fish from around 7:45 am onwards (we started at 7.) The guys landed 13 solid fish up to around 8 1/2lbs or so. Dave had two good ones get off near the boat. Evan landed a couple all on his own too. Fish are moving deeper and although we had action from around 75' outwards, the best fishing for us was from 85' out to nearly 115'. White and chartreuse plastics did the trick.
It was great to see a 9.5lb salmon leading the non-laker division of the derby. There was an 11lb+ laker as well as some nice rainbows on the board up to 8lbs or better. I'm a happy camper when Cayuga Lake is fishing well. I've been going out of Myers, but fishing is still very good to excellent around Long Point as well.
