Cayuga Cayuga - Some bigger Salmon and Bows

Recommended Posts

Fished Cayuga this weekend. Out of Meyers - headed north. Next day out of Long Point - headed south.


Fished temp and above. Morning bite was light the first day and non-existent today. Sunday brought a fantastic bow out over the deep water. Over 5 pounder. Great fight with jumps. On a rigger with a small Stinger in purple. Released at boat.

Today I fished just north of same deep water as Sunday. I ended up having to adjust my troll to avoid the weeds. Stayed over the deep water.

It paid off with a great LL Salmon about the same size as the Bow from Sunday. It jumped once and came to the net tangled in the line. I netted it with the rubber net. Untangled it and put it back in the water with the net. She was really lively in the net so I dumped her out. She floated so I did a quick circle to see if I could get her revived. Got right to her and took my eyes off for a second and she was gone. I hope she makes it. That was a beautiful fish. That fish came on the same purple small stinger.


Great to see some Salmon growing up and becoming such great fish. I have spent years clearing lines with the little ones that are so crazy aggressive.


Sorry no pics..had to get these fish back in quick.

Great job fellow Arima fisherman. The bows and salmon have evaded me most of the summer. So Lakers have been my main fish. I've managed to fill my freeze with them. So I can't complain.

We took a float trip Saturday out of Taughannock the fish finder showed some nice potential small bait pods and some nice marks.

First time out on my boat without a fishing pole, kinda nice lunch n a few beverages with the wife.

Nice job releasing those silver's!!

That purple and white stinger been nailing them. Same with Sutton's. Seems the fish are down south. I got nothing off L.p. Saturday, Sunday west produced a Laker and nice bow. Seems the fish are in shallow till around 8:30. All fish I caught were in 50fow or between 35 and 40 feet. Had to deal with a stalker for a while. Shook him and found the fish.

    • Creek Salmon eat Skein, but staging Salmon Don't bite

      I have a friend that catches tons of salmon in the creeks and rivers on Skein. In fact two years ago he took me to the falls on the Genesee and we caught about 6 or 7 huge Kings on Skein. So why do I have such trouble getting a staging Salmon to hit, as I troll back and forth through a screen covered with salmon, trying everything in my arsenal? Usually this results in nothing but frustration. I'm wondering if if should just drift over them with Skein!   Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario

    • If you happen to catch a #20 salmon with a rod and reel attached...

      Flying up Saturday morning for my annual trip with my Dad. He's been up per fishing when he can get out by himself (81 years young!)   He was in 639 FOW yesterday when he hit a nice salmon, about #20, and got it to the boat. Whatever happened, he was having a devil of a time netting the fish...   So he put the rod down to try and net the fish...   ... Missed the fish...   ... Fish takes off...   ... with the whole rig... tackle, rod, and reel...   Plus, when he went to try and grab t

    • Cayuga south end 9/13

      Got out from 7am to 11:15am before the wind and waves came up. Went 16 for 17 lakers and salmon. Most lakers were the 7-8lb range, all the salmon were sub legal. Speed at the ball was 2.2-3.0. 70-250FOW. 10 color leadcore did the work, but dipseys at 130 and riggers at 45 and 60 both took fish as well. Bright scorpion size spoons and standard DW’s in black/silver were the tickets. Light fleas, top water was 68, below 60’ down was mid 40’s. Every fish we got was super fat, healthy and were ready

    • Salmon, is it worth the knife?

      I am just starting out salmon trolling this year and am curious since I have tried numerous “fresh” salmon during the early fall run and found it is only palatable smoked. Is lake caught salmon all that much better and worth the preparation for a family dinner?  I’d like to hear some thoughts on this and maybe get some favorite recipes since they are so much fun to catch.

    • Emily back on Cayuga

      Emily's name sake, Emily III (Crestliner Eagle 245), looks like she will be on Cayuga on Sunday ,9-15. Ill winds don't favor an outing on her primary haunts of Erie and Ontario and she needs to head to the haymow for winter after this weekend so... Keep the reports coming, it's been a long while since I've roamed Cayuga's waters without snow in the air.
