Cayuga out of Dean’s 6/22
Long day on the water today with Matt and Zack. In a nutshell, the bass fishing was pretty tough today. They casted superflukes and worked drop-shots, spinnerbaits, tubes and cranks. One decent smallie and a few small largemouths were caught. One or two good fish were missed. A lot of the day was spent learning to cast baitcasters and learning how to work many of the above mentioned lures. That being said, bass fishing was still slow. We saw fish on beds – mainly small male largemouths. Didn’t work the smallmouths much. North end temps are coming up into the low 70s slowly but surely.
Reports I’ve heard are that there are some big bass in shallow but they are being fished pretty hard by the tournament anglersprefishing for the weekend BASS tourney. Jigs might be the ticket.
The great news was the laker bite, especially up around the Silo area. Just smoking fishing! Pretty much as good as it gets this evening. Waking up early for lakers was a waste of time today! Sleep in and go out around 7pm! Plenty of large well-fed fish all over the place in 50′ to 80′ of water or so. My guys landed around 10 fish in probably less than 2 hours – maybe 90 minutes! Fasten your seatbelts…..
