Well, using up my last week of holidays next week, and the wife decided she wants to go to Grand Bend for a couple of days. She's very patient with my addiction to standing at the edge of any water looking for fishies, and will sit for an hour or two while I Posted Image ..

My question is, does anyone know of any places in GB, Bayfield, or Goderich area where I might try my luck for an hour or two? I've fished almost every inch of the river in The Pinery, but outside the park, I'm lost.

Walked around the harbours in GB and Goderich, and I'm guessing there's probably perch or something there, but that's just a guess; and the river under the highway in Bayfield looks like a likely spot for fish comming in from the lake right now. Would I be wasting my time chucking spoons at the harbours?

Anyway, enough rambling. I'd appreciate any tips anyone familiar with the area may be willing to part with.

I'll also be stopping in Port Franks, hoping to meet Jim Downie to talk custom knifemaking for a little while, so I could look in that area as well...

Thanks! Sorry for the randomness of the post. Too much coffee.Posted Image

The river in Bayfield is worth a shot for steelhead.

Casting spoons or Flatfish in the harbour or just upstream from the hwy bridge will produce if the fish are there.

I used to have a cottage in Grand Bend.

I have caught perch, catfish, bass, and pike near the pier where the asuable goes into huron.

My avatar is of a bass i got there.

chucking cleos or dunking roe bags or worms in either Bayfield or Goderich should hook you up with some steel,cohos or even browns.
