Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 7/10 AM
Guided Ross and his wife Kris for a 1/2 day starting around 6:30 am. They seem to know how to pick good days and today was no exception. We found some steady, good action near the Power Plant with some larger fish hooked. Ross landed a 28″+ laker which we unfortunately couldn’t release, likely due to stress in the warm surface waters. Another 4 or 5 fish were landed with Kris probably getting the lion’s share. Ross dropped another solid as well.
For some reason these fish were fairly lamprey-infested with 3 attached eels coming up. Others had wounds, so it’s been a strange season. Certain groups of fish have been hammered fairly heavily and others appear unscathed. Best action was around 85′ to 105′ today. The fish bit all morning.
