Cayuga Lake out of Union Springs 8/9


Got out with Terry starting around 8:30 am. We decided it’d be fun to check out Cayuga’s northern portions to see what was happening. We had very solid action on pickerel with around a dozen to fifteen fish hooked/landed. A lot of nice panfish also found our bass lures including some very hard hitting (but lackluster fighting) rockbass, pumpkinseeds and solid (11″ range) yellow perch. We also managed some nice bass with Terry doing the most damage. We caught 4 largemouths using jigs and crankbaits. Fish were all very solid – mostly around 17″ers, though we had a 15″er and an 18″er. This is the first time this season I have fished up here so hopefully we’ll get back and find some more solid areas. The water looked good in around 50% the lake up there, with the other half being muddy from the hard rains we got yesterday and last night.
