Hey guys...been a super long time...I hope this post works...lol...it's been a crazy time over the last couple years...and working straight nights have definitely put a big damper on fishing....I haven't bothered much fishing some local haunts due to crowds ect...ect ....took the opportunity to enjoy a road trip last weekend for opener to do something a bit different than our local fishery has to offer....great way to beat the crowds...get some hiking in...enjoy some beautiful scenery....and catch a few fish...and enjoy the company of a long time fishing friend along the way ...doesn't get much better than that.....also hoping to catch up and wet a line with a few of you soon....and by the way Tyler...thanks for the help getting back on the board...was somehow not able to get on

Great to see you again Jack !  I know you like those beautiful spekkies !  

Next week is pike opener in zone 20  .  We may have to give it a shot at Port again (where the CO guy chatted with us)  .

I think I can get some nice fat minnies !

Any kind ?????    Have you been indoctrinated into the artistic field of apprehending carp ?  

Don't bring your spekkie rod Jack ......  :bb2:

I didn't fish today ...they finally got the blood out of me and I left them with a nice warm bottle of pee . 

They also performed an ECG but no EEG or EGG ! .....

My daughter was fishing from their dock at Sunset Lagoon and caught a 3-4 lb. pike (no autograph ) ,but it has 6 more days to get fatter ....

then it may end up on a platter . 

 Here's tonight's shot from her trailer overlooking the dock .....

Neat photo Bill …a beautiful sunset!

 

Thanks Gene ,  she sends us beauty shots almost every day . That's why it's called sunset Lagoon and she has the perfect spot to see the setting sun from the trailer . Our trailer is only 20 minutes away at Deseronto , so I may have the opportunity to get my own sunset shot there this summer .

A couple shots of that room Cliff mentioned...we checked in quick...went back fishing.....came back that night ...went holy crap...this place is way too nice....had we known it was that nice before hand we may have stopped to grill up some of the days catch with a juicy steak on the side....but it was a great place to enjoy a few cold ones and watch the big storm that rolled in with the lightning show....but funny rolling in all dirty from fishing ..hiking around...and spot hopping for the whole day....2 king size beds....2 bathrooms... jacuzzi tub...soaker shower...fireplace... living room area with digital tv....deck with a bbq....heck I would have been good with sleeping in the car🤣

For sure Bill....shared lots of great adventures stemming back well over 20 years with Cliff.....the specky opener is a tradition he shared with me for a few years...and a great step out from Niagara....we have caught literally a few thousand big trout out of the Niagara over the decades..put derbies on together ect.....so switching tactics with the chance of catching a couple of them pretty natural run beauties and a back road adventure is a great get away........I'm sitting here right now laughing because we both left after pretty much just running in to pay quick......after walking in to check in with the owner.....grubby clothes....messed up wind blown hair.....dirty and fish slimed....and big muddy rubber boots😆😂.....she gave us our combo....opened the door...we had a quick peek in and went back fishing .....so when we got back in the car we both laughed thinking 🤔 what that poor lady must have thought.....only to go back.... actually check the room out.....then go.....o crap... Better take my boots off .....lol

Well , that was happening today as my daughter fished from the dock where the pike , bass ,carp etc. like to play .

She will soon show up the "old man" and send me a picture of some pike !  

You can see the fishing rod ....but the Budweiser must be in her hand .....   

Yesterdays sunset  which I have on my desktop ....
