Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 8/28
Guided back to back half-day trips out of Myers. Fishing started out fair to good in the morning then wound up excellent by the afternoon.
AM Trip: My morning trip was with Greg. I had him work a bunch of areas, mainly hoping for a good brown. He hooked a very solid fish that got off just before we were able to identify it. From the battle, it was probably a good laker but could also have been a nice brown. In another area Greg scored on some great lakers – a 30 1/2″ and a couple around 28″ to 29″. He also had one smaller fish.
PM Trip: My second outing was with Kyle and Abigail, both grad students at Cornell. Kyle fishes a lot. We had a nice start to our afternoon with a couple fish landed – one a piece. Then we had a bit of a lull with a few dropped fish and a lot of hits that likely came from salmon/rainbows that didn’t hook up. Lakers turned on with a vengeance and we finished the day with a dozen fine lake trout landed to 30″. We had two doubles as well. Fish came on Lunker City Shakers. I think we had a few on Yum Money Minnows as well.
