Cayuga out of Taughannock 7/24


Got out for a little fishing of my own today. I haven’t fired up my smoker in quite some time, so I was hoping to get 3 lunker lakers. The overcast/rainy night/morning had me hoping I’d see a midday bite. Sure enough, the fish were hitting well when I arrived at 1pm. It didn’t take long to land a couple nice fish up to 28″. Fin-S Fish, Zoom Flukes and Berkely Gulp did the trick. All were fished on 1 oz. jig heads, either Erie style or round heads. After that I caught a few smaller fish. My best action was on the east shore, though I did work the west shore for a while. Fish appear to be distributed further south on the east shore. My final fish was almost 30″. There’s a lot of bait around and the fishfinder screen was reminiscent of an August picture – lots of marks and plenty of bait. The next month should feature some of the best and most consistent action of the year! H2O was around 72 on top.
