Cayuga Lake out of Myers Town Park 10/1 AM


Guided a 6 hour trip starting just after 7 am with Mark, Mike and Kennedy.  The original plan was to do a full day on Wednesday but we compared the weather forecasts and decided to go with a slightly shorter trip today.  The weather wound up being great, but the fishing was tough.  It was tougher than Sunday, which was a fairly slow day.  We had a fair number of light hits and misses but very few solid grabs.  Mike had a great day managing two big lakers – a 29″er and an 11+ 1/2 pound 31 1/2″ fish.  Solid beauties!  That was about it for the action other than a quick hookup and drop by Kennedy and some short hits by Mark.

Laker propagation netting has just started and crews handled around 40 ripe females today.  A ton of fish are around Taughannock Park and a mile or two up and down from there.  Jigging spoons can be effective but I much prefer to target feeders.  Fish moved well for the jigs in the afternoon.  I would’ve loved to have kept at it, but I had classes to teach.  Now’s a good time to fish Keuka, Owasco and the northern/mid-portions of Cayuga Lake for non-spawners and late arrivals to the lower lake points.
