I park on the dirt section beside the marina when I go to Jordan but I don’t want to get towed while I’m out trolling. Not sure if I can park there anymore. 


I don’t think anyone monitors any parking there but I have considered paying the $5 launch fee for piece of mind.

I got out Sunday afternoon for a couple hours, launched my boat in Port Dalhousie, had 3 hits but only caught 1, was about an 18 Pound Brown great fight. I caught it in 40 FOW, down 22FT. between Port Dalhousie and the Beacon

That's a real nice brown !   Might be related to Mbocco's brown  he hooked there ......B)

Here's a thread from 2019  about that area ,,,,,canoe fee at the Beacon ramp only  $3 .

I believe the sign now reads $5 for kayaks.  But there’s just a lock box with envelopes.  I assume you put money in the envelope, and write your licence plate on the outside.  I didnt see a person when I went down to check it out. Maybe in the summer there will be a human in that dilapidated hut.

Actually $5 is nothing for parking and the ease of launching from the ramp.

I like flicker shads and flicker minnows.  They are cheap, and they dive easier than a spoon. You can always tell that they are working by looking at your rod tip. 
 

I have tried spoons but in the depth required to catch lakers you would need additional weight.  No downrigger on my vessel.  I do have snap weights which I did not use today. 
 

I brought 6 lures out today.  That’s it.  If they didn’t work then it was going to be a day out exercising.  Minimizing your tackle box does help you really master that lure.

Nice markings on the laker , and great looking yak !!  It's a great way to fish ....enjoying the fresh air and getting in some leg exercise ,then some more for the arms when you get lucky .  Am I the only one who likes to use a floating crank bait like a Husky Jerk or Rapala on a 3 way rig ?  I like to drift them with a good chop on the water and use a weight accordingly to just skip over bottom . I also watch the tip of the rod to make sure the lure is working properly .

That surely would also work.  The flickers run 20ft down.  A snap weight 50ft back with the lure another 100ft back adds another 20ft depending on weight size.  A 3 way could work but with the snap weight I can run a longer fluoro leader and remove it when a fish is on so I can reel the fish all the way to the net.  The 3 way is not in the way.
