Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 8/30


Fishing started out slow this AM with Jim. He’s featured in my “featured species Brown Trout” photo with a nice brown caught around this same time-frame last year. We were hoping for a repeat of last year’s great fishing but it wasn’t to be. The weather was overcast, moist and misty and lakers were around but inactive. Jim landed one and dropped a couple that he hooked momentarily. We bass fished a bit and he hooked a few including a couple 17″ fish.

In the afternoon I was out with Fred and Sari who joined me Monday on Seneca. Things didn’t look good to start as the lake started kicking up some 2′ waves. Fortunately things subsided, the sun came out and they got into some decent lakers. Fred landed an absolute beauty – a 30″ VERY FAT laker that had to go 10lbs! What a nice fish! We bass fished a bit and they both landed and hooked some nice fish. Sari had a big one get away, but Fred managed a nice 18″ smallie. We landed another laker and called it a day around 6pm. Good fishing!
