Cayuga Lake out of Myers 9/19 AM
Guided Johan, Koen and Johan, all originally from Belgium. Johan and Koen were with me when we found the struggling kayaker on Keuka Lake years ago in the springtime. It was good seeing the guys and they brought a friend with them – also Johan, who happens to be a top-notch zander angler in Belgium.
The fishing was excellent today. The guys managed to land 13 solid lake trout in the AM. Their catch was anchored by Johan's 24" rainbow trout that hammered a jig on the descent. The fish put on a great acrobatics show before Johan even knew he had it on! All fish were released today.
We probably would have spent the whole day on the lake had I not had to teach a class later. They've been on Seneca Lake dealing with tough angling. Keuka wasn't much better but I should get some reports from them later this week. They had marked a lot of fish on Keuka and hopefully the fish will turn on with the right weather pattern and a little luck.
