  1. First Sturgeon our group has ever caught. The suckers were the red fin and the biggest I have seen ,and fight really hard......also missed the black fly onslaught by a few days they were just starting to get nasty as we were leaving
  2. Just got back from Waterfalls Lodge (w of sudbury ) 4 1/2 days There are pike / walleye / bass which has an open season being north of hwy 17 and lake trout Fishing in general was slow, the best action was on the Spanish River which is about a 10 min drive. We trailered a lodge boat and spent 2 days pounding walleye biggest 22" similar style of fishing as Niagara. Our bonus came on the last day when a 46" sturgeon ate a worm jig combo and what a fight ! It was my job to net the beast which on 2 attempts of trying to scoop the fish with the under sized net failed I had to hand off the net to a net pro......haha Anyone watching would have thought I was trying to sabotage the catch ( maybe a big bet on the line ) lol We also caught suckers to 8 lbs WOW ! This was our 3rd spring trip, i liked the spanish river part the best. If I were to go back I think I would spend all the days on the Spanish and seek out the monster Pike in the back bays aswell as the walleye..........
  3. Got out to Bowmaville Sunday for a 8.30 start , water was a little high with good colour . Surprised , the go to spot was empty of fishermen . I brought lots of baits to try including dew worms it was chilly with a light dusting of snow ! There was a big fallen tree in the tail end of the drift which limited the amount the space available to fish , more than 2 fishing this spot would be tight ( perfect for the 2 of us ) I' m rigged and ready first 10 drifts or so I had 3 fish on ( great start ) I finally land a nice silver female my buddy nothing yet he switches over baits and lands one aswell though it wasn' t long before the bite slowed . I didn' t see many bent rods when looking around .....switching baits I get bit by a runaway train haha this fish went under the big tree and headed down river . There was enough space for me to bend and crouch under the tree in order to chase my fish . It wasn' t till the next bend which was quit a ways down before I was in control and was able to land the trophy steelhead ( a good 30 " er ) My day ended 2 for 10 my buddy also landed 2 not great results but a nice day to be out...... I was in Argentina Oct 2017 ( Jurassic Lake ) and caught a lot of big rainbow biggest 19 lbs , They do not fight like our northern steelhead but they have big numbers to make up for that Rocknreel
  4. I got out with a few guys ( yrly outing ) we always start in Bowmanville and this year it seemed a lot colder than normal ( maybe its an age thing ) anyways, I landed 3. nice ones using worms. By the time it started warming up the bite was off. Did not see many caught so we headed to the Ganny for the afternoon. My partner landed 3 I how ever, never got bit.I plan on heading back Wed, with less people on the river I can fish the drifts with more confidence.....anyways thats the plan.
  5. BP sells a jig organizer bag which is about 8" - 10" sq with a carry handle a zipper closure when you open it up inside is a bunch of plastic bag storage spaces almost like a photo album they work great and their cheep in price Rocknreel
  6. Very Sad to here.....I was on my way to Niagara that morning and was diverted off the hwy near fruitland

    Bar Lakers

    Well, when I got to the bar the north rollers were waiting ( to rough ) so I headed to the hole and stayed all day, only 1 other boat stayed .I know fish are there I just got to get them to bite .... It was slow but worth it. Changed up many times and landed 3 lakers over 10 lbs 3 steel 1 close to 10 lbs ( Quality Fish ) and the bonus they fought like warriors

    I will on the river tomorrow and my first stop will be the bar.....I will report on how fishing was, good or bad
  10. Funny story, Now, but at the time ?? Last summer at the cottage, the weather was a bit crappy and I was bite jonzing big time ! but there were chores to do, You know how it is. I kinda new the fishing would be off, but i was drawn like a magnet to steel by the sound of the water ( which happens frequently ) I took the mouring cover off fired up the engine and shoved off, realizing I left my coffee on the dock,I went back to pick up my caffeine drink and off I went, again. Soon as I left the bay and hit open water the wind was howling , the spots I like on the lake are susceptible to bad weather conditions.After spilling my coffee on the carpet and getting frustrated (not having any boat control) I decided to go shallow maybe I can get out of the wind.Casting a none weighted plastic bait ( my favorite ) Finally getting a big bite, I tried setting the hook / keeping boat control and being careful of the rocks ( talk about multi tasking with out my caffeine ) I missed the fish and it was a dandy.... holy crap ! now im pissed ! I continue casting now I got a birds nest to un tangle OK, what next ? Well I`ll tell you, I pick up another rod and continue casting, another bite but this time the bait comes flying back at me, I duck, now with the boat completley out of control I have to get on the trolling motor fast to gain control but I can`t find my bait so I wip the rod looking for the bait thats when I found it STUCK IN MY BUTT I tell you it caught me completely off guard I dropped the rod in the water still attached to the bait WTF gives!! after cutting the line pulling up the rod dealing with the wind the boat driving me nuts I HEAD HOME back to the dock . I managed to get back safely, but my ego was hurt. Just sitting there I was thnkn maybe I should have stayed in and done my chores and scored brownie points and who knows what else, hmmm ? Im startled by this loud sound, a voice yelling ARE YOU GONA SLEEP ALL DAY or are you gona do your CHORES ??????? ..... that mount will look great on my wall ..... Rocknreel
  11. I would love to have the wall mount , you did an AWESOME JOB.....I might have to do a re write on the jaws movie to win .....haha
  12. There is a lake in Argentina called "Jurassic Lake" that 100 fish plus days are common. Catered to the fly fishers who will usually pay large fees to ( Go Where The Common Man Wont Go ) until recently. There are casters using spinning gear throwing spinners / spoons / minnow baits and any other type of hardware quietly going, also catching with great success ( talk about a trip of a life time ) This outfitter also operates La Zona in Argentina where Golden Dorado to 60 lbs are caught.All lures have to be modified with extra strength, heavy duty everything haha I have booked for this May and hoping to do Jurassic Lake in 1017 - 18 season . I dont know about anyone else but if I only get one shot I want to do everything " I just want to live while im alive " Rocknreel
  13. Hey there Cliff, not clear on ur rigging pls explain further, also is that floating or weighted jigs ?
