Cayuga out of Dean’s 5/18


Guide trip with Chris and Dave today out of Dean’s. We shot over to the Long Point area and were into lakers quickly. Fish were in 27′ to 55′ of water (give or take) and were aggressively hitting plastics. They landed around 17 fish in less than 5 hours! The size ranged from around 21″ to 30″; the best fish was probably around 9lbs. I think the reason we had such a good bite is the impending thunderstorms that were threatening us throughout the early afternoon.

Lake level is finally at full summer pool. Water temps remain in the lower 50s, down to 45 degrees on the bottom in 50′ of water (I brought my “Clinefinder” today 😉 Fish were in good condition, though they didn’t appear to be as stuffed with bait as they were 3 or 4 weeks ago.
