Upper Buckhorn today

Recommended Posts

Headed out this morning on Chemong, was nice and calm very little wind.

 

Hit the usual spots with the usual small offerings.

 

Water temps now 67F.

 

Fish are more active than they were a few days ago.

 

Boat traffic increased and it was becoming anoying so I moved on over to Buckhorn lake.

 

Found some nice sized perch and a few wgsf.

 

Started targeting walleye and came up with a few OOS bass.

 

Then out of now where on a weedline in about 7 FOW i hook into my first decent walleye for 2009.

 

Grabbed the new net and slimed it for the first time. :D

 

Measured 19.5 inches.

This one put up a decent fight and was released to fight another day.

 

After the walleye more perch etc.

 

I watched as an impressive storm rolled through towards the south.

 

I managed to stay dry :thumbsup_anim:

 

After it let up I called it a day.

 

Hoping to get back out tomorrow :Gonefishing:

That is a nice walleye Jeff, good to see. Good job on releasing it as well. I know how tough it can be to let a tasty fish go.

      I heard the 1st yellow Coast Guard helicopter fly by very low about 2PM. The pilot was circling our place continually, not a good sign. I was going to a friends at Featherstone Point on the west shore about 3. There were 5 OPP vehicles and about 30 folks gathered at the cottage of a very close friend that had passed a few years back. His daughter rents it as a vacation property now. When I got to Featherstone there were 3 boats west of the point. Our OPP Zodiac and 2 from our Coast Guard station

    • Got a new truck today

      I bought a new F150 Lariat last year and absolutely loved the truck but there was a serious issue with the 5 litre engine so Ford installed another engine recently and that one had issues too. I told them I was done with the 5 litre and didn't want the truck back. I wanted to replace the truck and get one with the 3.5 EcoBoost instead and I've never seen a dealership do so much to make a customer happy. There's already a great "Employee Discount" thing going on which knocks a pile of $$$$ o

    • Great Week on Nip/Upper French

      Another great week at Sandy Haven Camp on Nip/Upper French.  Been going there for over 35 years and its about as good as it's ever been.   Three generations of Dietz boys hit the Nipissing grand slam.  Boated two muskies, had hooks in two more and numerous follows.   The walleye bite was hot with 40-50 fish days and limits of keepers.   Bass fishing, smallies and largemouth, was real good too.   That place is on fire!
