Cayuga out of Taughannock 9/7


Went out with my friend Jeff today. We go back to 5th grade and he was the guy who really got me going as a fisherman when I was around 12 years old. We started by casting for bass on the east shore. I worked cranks and spinnerbaits and managed a few small largemouths/smallmouths. Nothing special on the bass. Perch were constantly following in my lures. As the clouds and fog cleared, we switched our focus to lakers. Lake trout fishing was slow to start, even with the sun up. Around noon to 1 pm the fishing started to pick up and we did pretty well. Jeff landed 6 nice fish and I got 3. Most hit on the retrieve. 90′ of water was best. There are fish all over the Taughannock area – up and down; the area is stacked, but they aren’t necessarily hitting great. Lakers are also being caught from shore with eggsack/marshmallow or floater rigs. We kept a limit and many of the fish had baitfish in their stomachs.
