    Cayuga Some info

    Started out in front of Deans cove. Should I go farther south? Also what is the largest fly that should be used? New to the lake,just looking for help. Thanks!

    Cayuga Cayuga 7/28

    Solo trip from Dean's Cove on a nice overcast early morning. Went South on the West side and marked fish hugging the bottom and not biting between 90 and 130, then they spread out some from 140-200 with most between 50 and 100 feet down. With so many targets I was hoping to be busy but just slow and steady mix of smaller salmon and lake trout hitting spoons off riggers. Sk8man, you should know I used your sliding cheater recipe with some good success. Best fish of the day was a 3 lb lake trout that hit a cheater. Thought it would be a salmon as fought long and hard all the way in. Just before quitting at 10 a couple Lakers finally went after flies. I suspect that the thermocline is setting up as before coming in I cruised out to 250-300 fow and many marks between 60 and 90 feet down. Nothing hit but by then the sun was out and the lake was getting flat so probably not ideal timing. Minimal flea trouble today.
  3. Does any one have the date for August derby. Thank you

    Cayuga Cayuga 7/10

    Took a day off to take one of my clients and his dad fishing. This was the first time they had ever been trolling. Launched at Myers and headed south. Got a short landlock and lost a nice one at the back of the boat. Made the turn and headed north very slow pick. After many hours of searching found some fish. They had a blast catching 4 to 6 pounders then they got one over 10lber. Lots of grins for sure. Dropped those guys at the dock and took another guy that I work with out for a short trip and he landed 10 fish in an hour. Since it is a derby weekend I can't give away to much info but I will say that the fish were moving big time. Most were around 85' and dipsy with flasher fly did the most damage. Fleas were bad but the weeds were not. 2.4 to 2.8 for speed. Total landed fish was around 25. Almost all returned to the lake but a few for supper. That is the nice thing when you catch them on flasher fly you can grab the heavy leader and unhook them at the back of the boat and watch them dive back like a rocket. See you this weekend! Wes

    Cayuga Helpful Hints

    Hello, We will be staying on Cayuga in 2 weeks very close to the Hibiscus Harbor marina. I wanted to do some lake fishing/trolling but I have no idea where to start. We have an older StarCraft American 20 and its equipped with a Humming Bird GPS/Fishfinder. I have a number of freshwater poles and 2 trolling poles with Penn reels. Could you guys point me in the right direction for Lake trout or Salmon?? I would like to know what kinds of lures / baits (pictures would be most helpful) to use for this type of open lake fishing. What water depth should I head for and which side of the lake would most likely produce more action? I most likely will be fishing in the early am or at dusk. Any help you can give this newbie would be most welcome. Take care and enjoy this beautiful summer so far. SH

    Cayuga A little info

    Putting in at deans come in the morning. Got any tips? Looking for lakers.rainbows. and salmon. The usual. Thanks!
  12. Hi folks, Love the site!!!! My wife and daughter and I will be trolling Cayuga for a week. We are avid trolling enthusiasts but have not fished in the finger lakes in the mid summer in 12 years. We have an 18' lowe walkthrough ith a 90 yami 4 stroke and a minn kota ulterra up front. A very nice fishing boat. My concern is the fleas. I have never dealt with them, ever. I have 2 Mag 5 downriggers with 150lb power pro downrigger line. My 2 downrigger rods have 40lb fluoro down to a 10 lb leader to the bait. I can stack another rod on each DR if advised. Off each side I use in line tx 12 boards with 1-2 oz trolling wts on 30 lb braid w/ a 10 lb fluoro leader to bait, or leadcore outfits 18 lb suffix with 10 lb leader to bait. I generally fish a dipsy down the middle of 30lb braid and 10lb leader to bait. I am fearful I may not be able to troll with the pesky fleas. Will I get killed by these critters or just annoyed? I don't have time to set up wire rigs we will be staying just south of Deans ramp. We are fishing on mon 7/23 with the jigmaster captain John. (I set this up to do something different and a backup if the fleas kill us-LOL) Any advice?? Any suggestions?? Any Changes ?? what should I expect? we troll everything from livebait with my Ulterra to flutterspoons, plugs and dodgers and flies with the big motor and trolling plate. from .8 to 2.5 mph generally Please help thanks so much

    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!
  14. Never fished Cayuga thinking about at trip in a few weeks.Would like to target salmon Any info on where to launch,depth to start,would be appreciated.Also are fleas a problem at this time of the year?If so how do you rig for salmon and rainbows? Thanks
  15. Launched at Myers around 5AM and headed north to the power plant. A few pics below. Lake was perfectly calm today and the fishing was great. 11 Fish landed by 10:00AM when we packed up and went to work. Fish were shallower than on the weekend. Best fishing was between 40-60 FOW. I don't normally look that shallow but the screen was blank anywhere above 60 FOW. Biggest fish was 28" and came in 45 FOW. I am happy to report I have seen no lampreys at all on Lakers this year, I have even seen Lakers with no lamprey wounds at all. Whatever has occurred that caused them to be gone, it is working from what I see. I also got the FF dialed in a bit more and figured out what was causing all that noise. Very happy with the way it performed today. All fish released successfully. Screen seems almost impossible to keep clean with fish spraying slime everywhere when we land em but Ill get a cloth for it at some point.
  16. My twin nephews are in town from down south so we took a quick evening troll to see if we could find some fun. Launched out of Dean's and trolled with the waves zigging in and out of the 80' shelf running 3 riggers and 2 short cores. Both nephews and my 4 year old each reeled in their first laker and were all kinds of excited as they each reeled in their "monster fish". I think I have a good supply of fishing buddies in my future! Also included a pic of another crew in case they're here.
  17. Can anyone recommend a tackle shop for some equipment (spoon, flies, spin and glo's) and advice for my trip up to Cayuga next week. I am staying on the lake just south of Aurora. Thanks in advance.

    Cayuga Cayuga 6/24

    Solo trip from Dean's Cove on a calm and peaceful lake this morning. Went North near the silos and back for a three hour trip. Marked the most fish a little deeper than the past couple weeks. 120-150 fow showed fish from 30 feet on down. Couldn't convince anything but a short salmon above 60 feet off the down riggers. The copper carrying a flasher/fly was the workhorse this morning, as it consistently fired, mostly with lake trout but also a couple 20 inch landlocks. I definitely had "the look" of NymphO's son a few times, especially after spending about 10 minutes working in a stout laker! Left that one and a few others in the water but kept 1 of the salmon and a small Laker for a nice grilled dinner tonight. Sorry no pics..... I don't do selfies. 😉
  19. Ok so I've been asked by numerous people if this event was going to run again this year and I now have the answer! The date is set for August 11th 2018 with the weigh in at south Seneca sportsmans club. I will post more details as I get them but mark it on the calender if you want to fish a great event. Last year's turn out was great and we'd love to see this year be even better! Those of you who fished the LOU All last the weigh in is at the same place and I'd love to see a bunch of LOU members at this event aswell!
  20. Got out with guide John Gaulke (fingerlakesanglinzone) on North end. I got 16 Lakers from 7am to 11am. All but one of the fish ranged from 26 to 29 inches. Lost another 4 or 5. All hefty fish with only a few healed lamprey marks. Fish were super active taking numerous dives and even caught a couple drifting that wanted to run and dive. I just got my 'new to me ' boat set up with ulterra , rods and fishfinder and hadn't fished much over the past couple years. Just making sure i had all the right stuff and John gave me pointers on my Lowrance because he had the same one. Mostly all white's , but got a couple on greens. I get out with John once in a while because as a guide he gives me shore landmarks and I've never fished the north end. Definitely a day to remember !!!!!!! If you're jigging check out cayugafisher.net all the info is there too.

    Cayuga Spoon length

    Are super slim spoons too large for Cayuga? Of so what would be a proper size ?

    Cayuga Cayuga 6-15

    Surface temperatures are increasing and the bait and big fish moving deeper. We targeted rainbows and found 52 degree water down 50 over 120 on the West side half way between Deans cove and Sheldrake. Ran stacked riggers 40 and 60, Slide divers at 50. Took a couple of nice ones on the divers and some Lakers off the riggers. The 6lb bow liked a rainbow Needlefish and the 7 lb one ate a greasy chicken wing scorpion.
  23. https://give.salvationarmy.org/event/ithaca-fishing-derby-2018/e173384 July 14 th and 15th Time for all those big lakers I been hearing about to show up. I hope the link works to the derby ,you can register online.
