Bassmaster Elite Series pros that did not compete in the 2012 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Open at New York’s Cayuga Lake, the only B.A.S.S. event ever held there, may be in for a surprise. Cayuga is nothing like nearby Oneida Lake, which the Elite pros have visited several times.
Both lakes support largemouth and smallmouth bass, but the similarity ends there. Cayuga does not have the copious offshore humps, flats, points and dropoffs that produce limits of smallmouth bass at Oneida.
A narrow, glacial Finger Lake, Cayuga stretches nearly 40 miles north from Ithaca, N.Y. About 6,000 acres of the lake’s north end is shallow and weedy. There is a smaller area of shallow grass on the south end.
