A Day On the Water With Fishhunter

Recommended Posts

Headed out with Lloyd, aka Fishhunter/Machete Man/The Pirate Captain, on Sunday May 23rd for some May 24 weekend walleye. The weatherman was calling for sun/cloud and highs of around 25 degrees (more like bass fishing weather) with winds of 10-15 km S-SE.

Arrived at Picton Harbour around 5:30 am and waited for the rest of our party to arrive...daking_eh2007 (Nestor...hope I spelled that right!!!) and Romeo. Shortly thereafter the boys arrived, so Juli, Lloyd, they and I headed out into "the Bay"!!

After a short boat ride Lloyd started setting up the baits.

The waiting began, as Lloyd says..."walleye, the hurry up and wait fish"!

The three of us guys decided to be chivalrous, so we let Juli have first turn. Here she is playing the first walleye of the day.

Took a little bit, but, here's a close-up of my second.

Romeo added another, which turned out to be the last fish of the day. Tough conditions, with changing weather and fronts going through all day. The other skippers we were in contact with had about the same results. Juli and I had a great time out on the water and taking home four nice eaters was bonus.

Nestor and I talking fishing, while I was driving.

Just wanted to thank Lloyd for an awesome day out on the water! Also thanks to Juli for the first half of my birthday present...nothing better for me than getting out on the water. Lloyd treats his guests with respect, and, works damn hard to put them on fish. Hope to have the opportunity to get out with you for some salmon/trout, Lloyd!!!

With endorsements from the likes of Roy, Terry and Wayne...I knew we were in for a good time!!!

Juli and I will e-mail you the pics of the other boat that she shot, Lloyd!

 

One last photo...heading back to Woodstock, going up the bridge, just before Desoronto.

Speaking of the "old guy"...yeah, tomorrow is his birthday (couple of weeks before mine). Happy Birthday, Lloyd...hope you and your brother's group had a great day on the water today!!!!

 

Thanks, Wayne...tough day on the water overall, but, still great results. Lloyd and I agree, it isn't all about numbers of fish. It is the total experience. I know it was frustrating him to not be able to get the group more (especially when we were marking them), but, compared to some of the others on the water our numbers were very respectable. Anybody that hasn't been out with Lloyd, don't pass up the opportunity. My shamefull plug, LOL...seriously though, he will treat you well. Loved seeing and hearing about his ice fishing excursions, as well. I got the "hardwater bug" big time this past winter. The laker he caught through the ice was amazing!!

I may be picking up speed but I'm hopping I have good brakes so I can slow it down and make the ride last a long time lol
