I'm mew to the forum, thanks for adding me. I've been successful fishing off the pier in Port Dalhousie using J-13, #4 Stingeye, Ko Wobnler glow spoon, and a Moonshine glow spoon. I'be been fishing early morning and late evening since mid September. Apparently lots of action and a few landed near the dam this a.m.

Always nice to see a new poster , welcome to the site 905 . Nice catch of kings  , one of my fav. lures is the J-13 , mostly for pike and big eyes .  Carp were spotted on the lake side there  ....did you see carp any passing by or breaking the surface ?  

Too bad they dumped the big rocks there , it makes it harder to get the fish in the net .  

Thanks for posting the pics .

Thanks! J-13has been hot for hooking onto a lot of salmon. Haven't seen any carp swim by, but I've seen lots of bass and a couple sheepheads. The rocks pose an inconvenience, salmon like to run in behind them  cut lines running against them.

I had the same problem with carp running line over rocks at some spots . I added  a 10' lead of 30#  mono. to my lines and haven't lost any rigs yet .  I have a few bright orange J-13 that were used back in the 80's for the spring salmon derbies .  ...nice action from those lures !  Some guys changed the trebles to siwash hooks .

Beauty day to be fishing !  Water is still on the muddy side . I  tried a worm harness with  a yellow blade but no hits. I saw some minnows breaking the surface and gulls going nutzy , so put a drop shot on and used small pieces of worms ...constant bites ...gobies , small perch , one nice white  perch and a small bass . THEN , out of the blue I hooked something LARGER !!!  After a great battle( about 15 seconds) I reel in a NICE walleye !! I don't eat the large ones ,so I carefully released it . It took a 1" piece of worm !   

 

Tonight I rigged up my 7' ultra light rod  and will spend another day having fun with the "pannies" 

 

 

here she is ........    ☺️

The bite changes from day to day (they are getting fussy) !  Yesterday , there was minnows , today ...notta !  A few small perch , two keepers ,tossed back & the gobies are always biting !   I tied into another walleye today ..... might be the grandson of the biggy I caught yesterday !   

 I have never caught eyes like these at Port Dal. this size , usually at least a pound or two +.. .  but it's good to see they are reproducing (somewhere)  . Another beautiful day to be out there !    Have they been stocking Port with walters ?

Where’s the picture of the “ nice” walleye Smerch? You are not talking about the fingerlings in the picture are you?

When it's the only one I caught ,  it's NICE !  The eaters seem to be avoiding me there this year . 
Hopefully , when I get some "nice" minnows , I'll have a "nicer" walleye to post .
