HISTORIC DAY on Cayuga Lake for the
New York BASS Federation

Union Springs, New York---The day dawned with clouds and a light rain falling as 160 anglers eased away from the launch at Frontenac Park. Reports from practice indicated that Lady Cayuga was not going to be kind to anglers as fishing was tough in a post spawn condition. In fact, the end of the day showed that the ladies both anglers and bass had a phenomenal day.
Early in the weighin, TJ Valle from Rochester and his co-angler for the day, Katherine Owczarzak came to the scales with some bulging bags of largemouth bass. TJs five fish limit tipped the scales at 21.50 pounds and took over the lead. With an average weight of over four pounds, it was apparent that at least one angler had found the big girls. Next up was Katherine. Her weight of 17.75 easily took the lead in the co-angler division.

Both anglers caught their fish in 15 to 18 feet of water on a variety of soft plastics and jigs. It was now a waiting game to see if the weights would hold.
