Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 8/25


Guided Jerry and Barbara for a 1/2 day starting around 6:45 am. The trip was mainly a tutorial trip in learning the trout jigging. Fishing went fairly well despite the full moon and cloudy conditions. Jerry did most of the fishing and managed to land 4 solid lake trout in different areas. They have a boat and wanted to learn some good areas to fish in the lake’s southern portions.

After the trip I had my friend Todd meet me at Myers and we did some jigging. Todd had the hot hand and landed around 4 nice fish. I landed one nice laker. I lost what was probably one of the best rainbows or salmon I’ve ever hooked likely due to a reel malfunction (a drag issue.) But it hit near the boat and was very powerful. I never got a look at the fish but from the run I could tell it was likely over 8lbs or more. Unfortunately it got off. It will be a fish I will not forget.
