  3. First time on Cayuga this friday Going to try Cayuga for the first time ever on friday. Coming from the East about 2 and half hour drive. Can anyone tell me a good boat launch to launch from on the east side? I see long point has one but how is the fishing around there? Looking to catch Lakers and hopefully salmon. Trolling with only 3 dipsys. Thanks I will share our results.
  4. Cayuga 9-11-17 Thought I was going to Lake O to take my cousin from Tennessee with us for some king action but at last moment he bailed on us. He said that the mornings here in NYS are too cold and he wasn't prepared clothing wise for it. I told him I'd loan him a parka and some moon boots and gloves but he opted out anyway....unreal . My son and I instead decided top go after some silvers on Cayuga and launched at Deans about 6:30 AM. Only one boat there when we parked and it appartently stayed that way through the morning as he was the only boat we saw out there. We marked a ton of bait and a bunch of fish right out from the launch in about 50 ft of water. We tried working them and gave up after no takers and headed north for a short ways with the wind until very shortly we ran into huge pods of grass all over the north so we headed back south with intermittent weeds along the way and it continued all the way to near Millican when we turned around. Mostly west side trolling in and out off the drop offs adjusting three riggers (until the board on the Digitroll on one screwed up) 2 leadcores and a wire rig up and down along the away with no success other than 4 lakers and a dink landlock. We worked mostly the 35-80 ft interval over the various depths. We saw a few fish right on the surface and a couple big ones jumped and they were silver but nothing showed interest when we tried running the riggers up there close. The lakers came on riggers and wire and were up higher than expected (50-60 ft) and we didn't seem to be able to stay away from them. We did see a apir of eagles high up and one that grabbed a silver fish and flew by with it and it was a pretty decent sized fish too. My thinking is that the bright moonlit night had the fish feeding during the night and they just weren't actively feeding and there was an abundance of bait available. Fun time anyway. Interesting how much more bronze colored and more brightly spotted the lakers are in Cayuga than Seneca or Canandaigua for example.
  5. Cayuga 9-12-17 Fish time fishing Cayuga today. Ussally fish Seneca but that's the dead sea this year so we moved. Launched out of taughannock and trolled north. Fished from 11 to 4pm. Went 4 for 7, 2 drink Lakers and 2 4-5 pounders. White ff combo and dodger/spin n glo on 7 color lead where the hots. Lost a screamer on the lead half way into the boat. Be at it again tomorrow morning
  6. Cayuga

    Cayuga 9/10 Fished Cayuga at long point sp. South. I stayed in at 100 to 120. Riggers at 60 70 85. All spoons, green frog was killer. 3 rainbows, one 7.0 lb other 3 and 3.5. Seven Lakers most 2.5 lbs, but one 8lbs. Funny thing the rainbow were in the areas of the most floating weed debris. The Lakers were most active about 5:30 pm. Wonderful evening.

  8. Cayuga

    Cayuga 9/4 Launched early out of Myers and headed north to Milliken. Had a little slow start. Didn't have good screens until we were inside 140 FOW. Marked a ton of bait and fish right in front of Milliken. Picked up a lot of decent lakers 80 to 90 ft down on riggers and green spoons over 100 to 140 FOW. We crossed over to Treeman and pretty much had the same thing goin over there. Couldn't seem to get any silver to hit but it was a decent day.
  9. Cayuga

    Dean and I hit the lake this morning early. The last few trips we were all over the bait but the fish didn't seem to wanna cooperate. So we made a run north. Glad we did. We immediately got into hungry fish. Dean reeled in the first and largest brown and did a great job. We picked away at a few more browns and then it went quiet. After two miles north of nothing we ran back to were the bite stopped and ran into a 9lb 4oz 30inch Rainbow. It's a new personal best and I couldn't have done it without my net man Dean Belden.

  10. Cormorants on cayuga Has anyone noticed they are there by the THOUSANDS???.. I knew they were around, but the south end of the lake was infested with them, from Treman to Myers and beyond.. big flocks everywhere, diving, resting, flying.. Great,... with all the problems on these lakes, this is just what we needed,.,, I hope they eat billions of gobies, and choke as they are doing it.. Cormorants in the numbers I observed is a very bad thing.. They decimate fish populations in pretty short order... bob
  11. Hoping to target rainbows this weekend I'm hoping to head to Cayuga on saturday and wanted to target rainbows and salmon. I've been pretty consistently catching just lake trout. I can't seem to catch a rainbow, brown, or salmon. I've used spoons, and flasher flies. But no luck other than lake trout. I know speeds are a little higher for rainbows and salmon than lake trout. I've been setting 2 riggers, one at 70 and one at 40 both with cheaters on. I'm still fairly new to this and trying to sort everything out. Any ideas are much appreciated.
  12. Cayuga-Saturday Took my wife's friend's husband out with me on Saturday. Launched out of Dean's and set up going south. 2 dipsy rods with flasher/fly set at 200 and 175 on 2 setting. 3 rigger rods set from 50 to 80. Dipsy at 200 goes off, give rod to Jin (orange shirt), coach him on how to reel him in. Lose fish, bad coach. Same rod goes off again and I just keep reeling in, not giving any slack and able to land the salmon. I've been losing a number of fish on the dipsy/flasher rig this year. Have been trying to coax them in and I think it's been giving the fish too much slack with the extra drag of the flasher. Set the other dipsy rod at 200 and it goes off. Nice rainbow reeled in by Jin. We're learning. Then caught a dink salmon. Dispy rods go dead but rigger rod goes off. I figure with 12lb test I don't need to be too careful. Wrong again. Breaks my line at back of boat. Didn't get a look at it but must have been a salmon or rainbow. Getting rough now the more south we go. Started to take in lines to head up north but got into a nice tangle with one of the dipsy rods and a rigger. But as I'm trying to reel in both rods, rigger rod seems like something's on it. Nice laker. Didn't feel like untangling the mess in the rough water so decided to end the day after a couple productive hours of fishing. Will have my wife's Korean church friends over this weekend for a nice grilled fish dinner.

    Cayuga 8/27 PM Slow pick but quality over quantity! Riggers were dead. Divers out 265 with green dot spinnies and green Big Weenies did the damage. Lakers were all 10 to 12 lbs and a new boat record 31 inch 14 lb Land locked! Fished a mile north and south of Sheldrake. Screen was loaded with bait and fish. RR

    Cayuga Sunday Went out off T-point...headed north. Ended up crossing over to AES. No numbers of fish, but BIG ones. 1 LLS 5-6lbs. , 2 Rainbows...the biggest one was quite a fish. Caught a 14 lb. Laker the other day , the Salmon, and the Rainbow all on a #61 Sutton...a TINY spoon. Maybe with all the baitfish (tons) they want something more petite? Who knows WHAT fish want on any given day. I usually use #44's, but decided to change. Go figure.
  15. Cayuga

    Got out 8:45am - 2:45pm, trolled north from T-Falls up the west side almost to Sheldrake, and back south again on the west side. Started with a nice 21" LL, then a bunch of 2 - 6 pound lakers, couple of tiny rainbow, another LL 19", it slowed down late morning and then I got a beauty laker this afternoon, 33 inch 12 pound 12 oz... hit a purple/black/pink honeybee spoon 60 feet down in 240 fow. It had one red eye, likely from being caught in the past. My 2nd biggest laker ever, gave a great fight, and it was a beautiful day out there.
  16. big laker 8-6-17 Launched at Taughannock Park......headed north of the Boy Scout camp. Set up 2 dipseys for lake 255 ft. back. One 300 ft. back. I suppose they were down 75 to 85 or 90 ft. of water. Saw a BUNCH of baitfish on the way to Kidders. Caught 5 or so Lakers, 3 to 6 lbs. Not bad. They were all in 85-100 ft. of water. Then, a BIG I thought my rod would break. I had to stop the boat because I could not move the fish an inch...really strange. Then a felt a powerful tugging and I thought it must be tail hooked. It felt like bringing in a barn door...sideways. Long story short....14 lb. Laker!!! Not bad for Cayuga. When I figure this out, I will post some pics.

    Got out with my 12 yr old nephew and my dad yesterday and again with the nephew today. Both mid morning-early afternoon trips. Six salmon, 3 small lakers, one small rainbow the first day. Best fish were a 5 1/4 lb and a 4 lb salmon. Today, started slow but then we got two on at once, one turned out to be a beauty 7 lb 27 3/4" rainbow, other a small laker. Half hr later another nice 4 lb rainbow. A few other small salmon and lakers, one other small bow and we let the nephew bring in almost all the fish. Had a ball. Best luck was between the scout camp and Kidders. All spoons, a bunch of colors were getting them, many depths 85 - 300 fow, 40-65 down. Fleas and weeds were annoying but we worked through it and the nephew was real happy. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Cayuga report 7/22 pretty good day Fished Cayuga on Saturday, got a few nice atlantics, a couple rainbows, and a couple lakers. Couldn't find a brown trout for the grand slam! Most fish came from 30-60' down over 80-120 feet of water. Not many marks out in the center of the lake over 200-400', did much better closer to shore. Nearly all fish caught on small hammered nickel stinger spoons, some with a little blue or green stripe. Trolling speeds of 2.2-2.6 seemed to be best. The wind had just enough southwest in it to move most of the debris out away from one side of the lake, but once I located the debris free zone, it was not a problem at all. Be prepared to deal with fleas, they are manageable but if you want to set the lines and run for hours at a time, you will be disappointed. The fleas force you to check and clean off each line fairly often, but thats not a bad thing because it improves your fishing to check them often for tangles, weeds, or fish that didn't trip the release. In any case, it was a pretty good day! I think it helped that it was cloudy, not bright and sunny... and also there were very few pleasure boats out in the morning. That combo added up to some good biting fish. It wasn't fast but the fish are there if you work for them!

    HABs Just curious everyone's approach with the widespread/lakewide HABs confirmed on Cayuga as of 7/18? Y'all still eating the fish? I usually catch & release most fish, and save one or two to eat here and there. So, I don't mind going 100% catch & release for awhile, but it's a shame to let fish weighed in at a derby go to waste. I know there's varying opinions on whether these HABs are a concern with eating fish, and it's a relatively new issue without much scientific info out there about that.

    Cayuga Report Was out with 2 trips on Sunday. Fishing was very good. North end. Temp break was about 35 foot. Parked my riggers at 40 foot with sliders and the silvers were chewing good. Had 3 salmon 5, 7 and 8 lbs. A 6lb brown. 2, bows 5 and 10 lbs. Weeded through a ton of short silvers and the lakers were up there too. I did have the divers out 275 and did a few lakers there but it was better out 160. Green dot spinnies with green flies. Warrior flutter spoons in purple alwife and firetiger with gold cups on the riggers and sliders. 10 color core down the chute with a watermellon spoon took a lot of fish too. I was out sunday the 9th and Monday the 10th with similar results. Fishing the same spread. I'm off for a couple weeks but will be out quite a bit in August. Good luck to all. RR
  23. Cayuga South End Tough day for me on Cayuga South End today 7/19/17. Launched at Treman at 6:15am. Headed to the west side to troll northbound. Blank screen FOREVER. Periods of debris that was a pain. Lots of fleas. Several snags on limbs. Dirty water. Boo hoo. I never had a hit. Never saw a fish check out my lures on my Lowrance. Picked up and ran North for a mile or so and set up again in spots that worked last time. Pulled out at 12:15. Kept riggers at 70-100 nearly all time because when I did see a fish on the screen it was in this range. Temp down 90ft was always around 45deg. 10 colors on my lead core, even threw out some Rapalas on a flatline. Used spoons of all colors, flies, spin docs, Dodgers, never got to the dipsies though. Did I mention I NEVER even got a hit? I'm gonna kick ass on them next time though. if you fished the south end today and caught fish I'd love to hear from you.
