Cayuga Myers Entrance Warning

Recommended Posts

Was out on Cayuga last night and saw what at first looked like a white Cormorant sitting proud in the water... when we got closer, the target was identified as the top 18" of a sailboat mast at full sail!  Must be during the flooding/rain someones sailboat got washed in and swamped.  The boat was located just south of the entrance to Myers, maybe 100 yards from shore.  With the wind, its possible that it blows in shallow, or into the Salt Plant.  Just wanted to warn to keep an eye out.

Update:  After talking to one of my coworkers who spends a lot of time down there, I believe its a wind-surfing mast, not a sailboat.

 

Called the Sheriff's Office, they're out looking for it now.

 

Be safe, good fishing.

I removed this from the water last night around 7:45 it was just the mast and sail, mast was broken off at the bottom.  

 

I put it on Craigslist lost and found this morning.

 

If anyone knows who it belongs to I've got it...
