Cayuga Lake Tournament, June 24, 2012

Cayuga Lake

Sunday 24 June, 2012

This is our first points tournament of the year.  Cayuga Lake is one of the finger lakes of central New York State.  Located just south of the NYS Thruway, (approx. 10 miles west of Auburn, NY), the lake has a variety of habitat for various fish.

We launched at 6 AM and fished for 7 hrs. coming off the water at 1 PM.  Weather conditions for the day at 6 AM: sunny, 59 deg., wind out of the SW at 5 mph.  By the time we were off the water the humidity had lowered itself from 80% to 50%, temp. was 79 deg., with a wind of 8 mph out of the West.

The fish are brought in alive from the boat, weighed and released back into the lake for others to catch
