Surf and Turf and Dollarama Fishing!!

Recommended Posts

Left the kids at home and headed up to Jiggy for some R&R and a alone time weekend with Monique!! We saved so much money buying Carling and our tackle at Dollarama we splurged on some great food!!

 

First off our Dollarama Derby Pictures. I caught two bass and Monique caught a small pike. I made a leader out of the wire we bought, but without a swivel, my line got pretty twisted which lead to an early end to the fishing. Ill have to find real leaders at a Dollarama somewhere.

So.. my entries... a total of 25 1/2 inches amd Moniques whopper - 10 1/2 inches. All fish live released!!!

 

That night we went out pickeral fishing in front of the camp, caught two small ones for breakfast the next day and I snapped this shot. I hope my wife doesn't find out about me new girlfriend!!

We also managed to drag the boat UP the rapids north of camp, Monique had never been there... We went till we saw another boat.. then returned home.

As always a great trip, not a lot of wild life this time, most of the ducks have gone early it seems. We did do a bunch of small jobs around camp. till next time!!
