Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 9/19


Guided Jeff for a 1/2 day trip starting just after 8 am. We had somewhat windy and cloudy conditions to start. Within a half hour or so Jeff nabbed a laker around 24″/25″. Fishing was somewhat slow but not bad. We marked a lot of fish that weren’t real active but Jeff picked away and landed a couple more solid fish up to around 28″ if I remember right. He had a good brown follow him to the boat and then hooked another near the bow of the boat. One salmon also followed. A few other hits were had. We had a good time and it was a change from the shallower walleye jigging that Jeff does in his home state of Michigan.

After the trip I picked up my friend Todd from Myers and we gave it a go for another 3.5 hours. The wind died back a bit which made for easier fishing. We landed another 3 lakers and a brown with me having the hot hand this time. Some more good fish were missed (as is usually the case) and Todd came close to “figure 8-ing” a nice brown boatside. We kept a brown and a laker. The brown had fresh alewives in it. It was a fat fish – 21″ long and 4lbs 11oz. The bite never really got hot today with the wind and cloud cover impeding it.
