Cayuga Cayuga first time, looking for advice


Recommended Posts

Going to try Cayuga for first time. Coming from Canandaigua area. Deans cove looks like the best launch option. Please let me know if I should be looking elsewhere. Which direction should I troll from there? What to use spoons,FF, cowbells? Any other thoughts or advice for Cayuga would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve fished out of deans cove 3 days in June and managed to catch lakers on anything thrown out on down riggers (spoons mostly) and anywhere from 15 to 80 feet down in 20-120 FOW. We fished both East and west shores with the best bite being off of aurora and points north of that. Only salmon came directly off the launch at deans in 110 FOW down 25’. Wish we had trolled south of deans on the west side but never got to it. I’m new to Cayuga as my place is on the west side of Seneca but the fishing on Seneca has been so bad it’s made me trailer to other lakes.

Good luck! Please post what and how you do!

I was at deans today, Lakers silvers, some big Lakers. 18 to 24 inch landlocks. Beautiful fish. 

50 to 60 feet. Over 150.  2.4 to 2.7. 45.8 degrees at 60ft.  64 surface. North , South troll didn't matter. White tuxedo, Rl silver , purple spoons. Fun morning. It was rolling a bit. Find bait, you have fish.

What a day! Boated 16 fish from 6am to 11am. 10 LT, 4 RT and 2 LLS. Needless to say my friend and I were busy and had a day to remember!  All 30-50 feet down in 60-100 FOW.  All on riggers and small dipseys. 10 of the fish went for the Michigan stinger purple glo alewife. Purple black and white were productive colors. Kept some teenagers. Put the babies and big boys back. Largest fish was 9 lbs LT. Going back tomorrow with my 11 year old daughter who loves fishing for Father’s Day.

Brian, we set up right behind you as we ran up to the point hoping to target silvers. Not bad. 5 salmon 1 rainbow. The lakers still bit though with 4 of the 6-8 lb size. Nice day to be out. The boys had fun all the while chewing their Big Al from Uncle Joes!
