Cayuga Lake out of Myers Point 8/1 AM


Did a 1/2 day AM trip with Tom and Joe. Tom had joined me maybe back in 2009 or so for some laker jigging out of Taughannock. Joe forgot to get a license for today so we were delayed by around 1/2 hour. Keep in mind that in NYS a license is required when on guided trips. In some states you don’t need one when out with a guide, but I don’t have any problems with that regulation. Anyways, it’s a lot easier getting a license now than it ever was before. You can go online or (during working hours) purchase one by phone. Tough to beat that kind of convenience.

Fishing was very good to excellent today with quite a few doubles hooked. No giants today, but Joe landed a 28″ wild laker. Joe also landed a solid 22″ salmon. A few dink salmon were also around, but we try to avoid hooking and maiming them. Overall we had around 15 or 16 solid lakers. The bite ranged from slow to excellent during the course of the AM. A lot of fish have moved well south of Long Point. Expect fishing to pick up around Taughannock and Frontenac Points by the day. I think these shorter days (photoperiods) really get them swimming south. Depths ranged from 65′ to 90′. Fish are still feeding quite a bit for the most part.
