    any tips for a newbie on Cayuga?

    Very few that I catch get dropped below. SHARP hooks, of the right size, vicious hits, usually result in a solid hook-up. It's the Lake trout rolling at the surface that makes the mess!

    When you say 80 ft is best, do you mean 80' of water or 80' down?

    Cayuga Myers north

    Actually I meant to make a comparison with the surface temp and the arrival of fleas!

    Cayuga Myers north

    Trolled dipsies from Myers to the power plant. Trolled 70 to 90 ft. of water, 50 to 65' down. Took 10 lakers and one landlocked salmon from 5:30 to 8:30am. Surface temps.at the magical 70 degrees. Fleas are becoming a big nuisance. Lots of bait everywhere. Fish are all clean. These are the good old days!

    Drifting Live Bait for Trout

    Excellent summation. I learned years ago, while deep jigging 100' of water, that no amount of jigging action would get them to hit. Angrily I reeled frantically up, only to have the Laker hit 30' under my boat. Weird fish!

    Drifting Live Bait for Trout

    I'm thinking the movement of the jigs spurs their predator reflex more so than a minnow just sitting there.
