Cayuga Interesting diet items in Cayuga LTs


Recommended Posts

Lakers were shallow this AM (5/7) and apparently took advantage of the full moon to chow on perch, rockbass, goby, Alewife, and a fat senko-like soft plastic.

 

boards with stick baits were hot till 9am, then nothing. all colors seemed to work

They are famous for eating plastics.  Someone posted a picture years ago of a laker that ate a foot of a dead animal.  I believe it was a raccoon foot.  I will see if I can dig up the post.

We caught a laker still fishing sawbellies on Canandaigua many years ago in 160 FOW, when I cleaned it, it had a partially digested mouse in its belly. Not quite on your theme but interesting none the less.

“a flasher n’Senko” I like the idea but you’d  have to refer to it by some obscure name....like a Chady-K rig! 

 

One of my first jobs working in the Finger Lakes (1998) was angler diets from Skan & Owasco, Skan Lakers had monarch butterflies in stomachs frequently.  I bet some LOU folks helped collect those.
 

And yes I just checked the smoker......spring Cayuga lakers are tasty!
