Cayuga Wonderful Weekend on the Water

Recommended Posts

Two beautiful days on the water.  Started Saturday launching from Deans before sunrise and ran South to Sheldrake and back.  Rainbows and a decent landlocked were the action for the first hour taking spoons on the rigger and 5 color.  Lakers slept in but by 7:30 they took over.  Just North of Sheldrake was very hectic as the rigger down 60 with a glo frog kept firing.  The 7 color had high fish honors with an 8lb 8oz Laker who was in a bad mood.  Thanks to my family for the portable scale for Fathers Day. Now we can weigh the catch with ease.    Sunday was a new day, new sunrise, still hungry fish.  Headed North and found active fish in all varieties.  Nothing huge today but steady pick of fun to catch, (and in some cases eat!) Fish.  Riggers at 45 and 60 did most of the work while the 7 color sporting Steelie Dan made the landlocked and Rainbow happy.  Off the water again at 10:30 with shorter lines at Deans.  Had bonus water time both afternoons taking the kids and friends swimming.  They wanted to fish a little this afternoon so we set some lines and they managed to land a couple Lakers in short order.   The lake seems so healthy right now though a downer today was landing a laker with a lamprey attached.  First lamprey I've seen in some time.    Was happy to let that fish go after having made it lamprey free!!
