Seneca Lake out of Geneva 9/12 AM + Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 9/13 AM
9/12 Seneca Lake: Guided the Hermans for 1/2 day starting just after 7 am. The Geneva area is still loaded with lakers. The bite was sporadic today overall, but we had some good fishing with around 8 fish landed including a couple doubles. Fish ranged to over 30". The cold water had moved up and we had laker friendly temperatures very shallow. Best fishing was over 80' FOW or more. Very few anglers were out on the lake. I'm pretty sure we got a glimpse of the "Northern Lights" in the AM over the NW shore of Seneca. Very cool!
9/13 Cayuga Lake: Guided Justin and his dad Darryl for a 1/2 day. The radar looked clear when I awoke just after 4 am, but we wound up getting quite a bit of rain today. As nice a day as last Sunday was, this one left a lot to be desired! It was cold out, we got soaked and the wind kept blowing and the clouds and rain kept moving over us. But the fishing managed to be alright. The bite was spotty – good at times, then slow. It was Darryl's day with him having most of the action – we had 5 fish landed on the day. Most were 22" to 24"ers, but we got one at 31"! The guys were great sports despite getting really wet. We all had raingear, but days like today show the flaws in it! Still a fun day fishing-wise.
