Cayuga 1/9


Recommended Posts

Hoped to get out Saturday but Dean's had iced up and didn't hear a status report for Taughannock.  

So.... today with the warm up we headed to Dean's this afternoon and despite a snotty surf from a South wind gave it a go.  The chop was less near shore so put out a board and worked in tight for an hour but only picked up 1 Laker.  The wind started to turn and the surf let up a little so snuck out past 75, dropped a couple dipseys with flies and game on.  Non stop from 3:30 until dark, the flies had most of the fires but the rigger went a couple times too.  A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in January and still watch a great football game tonight.

The luxury of living close to the launch allows for last minute fishing trips.  I use the wind finder app and it's pretty reliable, but yesterday the lake surf was still coming strong from the South even though the wind started Southwest and an hour and a half later turned to come out of the Northwest.  Definitely a lag between change in wind direction and the waves.  Glad to get out as this time of year you never know when the next opportunity comes up

Awesome!  Note fin clip. 

Yes, 95 % of Lakers I get from Cayuga are clipped.  Been doing a diary for the DEC for a few years now..  Always look forward to the results when they post in March.  I would love to know their system in order to get an idea on ages of some of the bigger ones

Usually they have sent plastic things that look like book markers with that info on it in some of mine depending on the lake. I imagine the Region 7 office of DEC might send ypou one for Cayuga if you contacted them.
