UNION SPRINGS, N.Y. The early June return of the Bass Pro Tour to New York’s Cayuga Lake for Favorite Fishing Stage Five Presented by ATG by Wrangler brings the 80-angler field back to one of the most prolific tournament lakes in the country. In the words of 2022 Stage Six winner Dustin Connell, this gem of the Finger Lakes is “unbelievable;” Dakota Ebare goes one better and predicts that the upcoming June 6-11 event will be “epic” (Ebare’s 7-pound, 10-ounce smallmouth from Cayuga definitely supports his prediction).

Connell and Ebare are joined by their Mercury Pro Team teammates Zack Birge and Jacob Wheeler as they look into the near future for Stage Five at Cayuga.
