      Went up in the mountains for a couple days with a buddy for some hunting/fishing/getting away time. Bivy'd on the shore of this lake which was kind enough to put out fish and only take a couple lures in return. Weirdest part about it all was how we caught them. First day we only hooked rainbows, second we only hooked brookies and third we caught both but released all the rainbows. Some of the same tackle was used to catch both from the same locations too.


      Picture of the lake right after we arrived. I was pretty beat from a tough hike earlier and just threw on flip flops and relaxed for a bit.




      Day one dinner, 5 rainbows. Tender little guys between 5-8"




      Day 2 dinner, some bigger fish. 10", 12" and 13" brook trout and a couple smaller brookies to round it out.




      Day 3, more brookies, biggest at 13".

      If I wasn't in the mountains I wouldn't have kept them, but I wanted something to eat and wasn't landing anything bigger that evening.

      My dad passed away about 10 years ago and my mom boxed up all his fishing stuff. I went through it for the first time this weekend and I was amazed at how many rods and reels he had.

      He had about 15 Abu-Garcia baitcasting reels, most NIB
      A half dozen Shimano Calcuttas, I think 3 250's and 3 400's
      Maybe a dozen assorted Shimano and Daiwa spinning reels
      Close to 20 Berkeley Series One rods
      10 St. Croix baitcasting rods
      3 Shimano rods that were given away for the first 2,000 people at a Cubs game in 1997
      A bunch of Ugly Sticks and other assorted rods
      A Fenwick musky rod that I don't remember the name of, but it came in it's own velvet sleeve and rod case.

      And 5 tackle boxes full of musky lures. He had to have had 15 grandma's, 10 Cisco Kids, Lundberg's, Suicks, Bucher's, a bunch of red eyes, about 15 pounds of spoons, 30 Rapala's...

      I'm just starting to get interested in fishing again since my boys are older and I'm looking forward to using some of these items.

      Bummer about your boat. I noticed it's a Nitro? At least you didn't let yours get smashed in some rapids:

      (Not mine, but local)

      My conundrum for the approaching (rainy) weekend is whether to look for Brookies, fish the salmon run in the Nipigon or git sum 'eyes? I just picked up a 9' salmon rod so that's tempting. It's spooled with braid, and with the right weight lure casting distance =

      ^^ wow that's nuts! i worked on mine a bit this evening and the steering is better. so i took it out fishing and hooked into a 37" pike. will probably post the video within the next couple days. some fairly funny/stupid sh*t happened while i was handing the fish that i wasn't sure whether to or just



      kanuk: definitely go for the salmon; you didnt buy that new rod for nothin

      The plan has been made: We will fish for pickerel (walleye to you?) at the Little Jackfish River In case we need further diversion we'll bring brookie tackle and fly rod as well.

      The little Jackfish has a hydro development planned so this world class fishery will be contaminated by mercury for a decade or two after innundation

      It's still a little early for salmon and a canoe is not the best platform when fishing the Nipigon with kids...

      Edit - and nice fish! (Pro Tip: I always blame a dropped pike thrashing around in the boat on their slime)

      haha great guess, and spot on!

      the part is the fact that as i was measuring the fish it thrashed and kicked the net in the water.... which then sunk to the bottom of the lake. luckily my bulldog was all entangled in the net and i just reeled it in. when you dont handle a big fish for a while you tend to forget how to do things, oops

      Went out of Ludington last Wednesday. We killed it even with the poor water conditions. Strong south wind pushed a lot of warm water north. Hooked 11, landed 10.

      A 6.3 pound smallie from this past weekend on Lake Simcoe. My best so far this year.

      Lake simcoe produces bigger ones. It's amazing in October and November. So don't wait until next summer.

      LOL ...Harsh because that is ONE NICE smallmouth, no matter who's holding it!

      But otherwise I subscribe to your newsletter:


      That one was "just" 4 lbs and change. Our biggest to-date, caught back in May.

      Yeah probably from a lamprey. All kinds of marks down that side, the other side was a lot better looking - oh well, that's the way I was holding it.

      Just got back from 2 weeks on the Sutton River.. Talk about epic.. Polar bears and brook trout, can't beat that combination! Biggest fish were around 4.5lbs or so, but we were catching 50-100 of them EACH per day, lol! All on big top water mouse patterns, you can't beat that!
