Cayuga out of Dean’s Cove 4/9


What a fun day! I met Michael, Brian and Dan at the launch around 9:30 am today. The guys are all from Scotland, and Mike is studying Law at Cornell. These guys know how to laugh and have fun, that’s for sure. We worked a bunch of different depths until we settled on 145′ to 150’+. There are a LOT of lakers out there! Some of the fish are still rather thin for their length, but rest assured they are putting on weight. Heavy tube jigs in white provided much better than expected action. The guys landed 11 nice fish, keeping a limit of beauties up to 31″. It is a lot of fun jigging these fish up from the depths, then watching as the beautiful greenish silver fish shimmer in the crystal clear water as they come to the net. Michael had a cool small video camera and we shot some great clips. H2O was 36 degrees, the water levels are slightly above summer pool (high) and the wind was hauling pretty good out of the west. We never saw another boat on the lake today! It’s amazing, but for the boat traffic we could’ve been in Alaska today! The fun laker jigging is just getting started!
