Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 8/19


Guided Sam and Becky for the full day starting around 6:45 am. I don’t know how Cayuga was yesterday – whether it was slow like Seneca or what, but today the fish really turned on (we have a cold front moving in tonight.) Just a great bite all day long. Sam and Becky wound up landing 15 nice fish including a rare 28″ wild beauty that we released (along with nearly all of the others.) We worked all over the lake from Taughannock on north towards Sheldrake, mostly fishing the west shore. Around 72′ to 90′ was best though there are a lot of fish out deeper too. Lots of colors and various plastics worked. We had a couple doubles going. Best fish was Sam’s 29″er though Becky caught the lion’s share overall. They had a nice friendly competition going for awhile.
