Cayuga out of Taughannock 8/30


Did a half day with Lee, Kyle and Chris. The guys drove down from Rochester and Mapquest led them astray, so we got a late start (around 7:45am). The lake was still enveloped in a haze when we got underway, so I don’t think our fishing was affected much. Action was “slow-steady” throughout the day. The guys don’t get a chance to fish much, so they were wondering if we’d catch anything after an hour went by with no action. But Lee got things going after a quick hook-up and lost fish. Kyle then landed a hard-fighting 28″ laker and after that the guys got focused. Chris wound up having the best day, landing 4 nice fish. Kyle did well also. After getting things going, Lee just didn’t get the lucky breaks. The “Fish Gods” owe him as far as I’m concerned! So hopefully next time he goes fishing, they’ll reward him his just desserts! Fish are still in the same basic depths. A slow fall and slow retrieve did the trick today. Varying the jigging technique based on the signs the fish give us is the key to consistent success. Listen when the fish are trying to say something! Fish are well dispersed throughout the mid-lower lake areas. H2O temps are dropping on the surface. I believe they were at 73 today.
