Another tough one on the lower...

Recommended Posts

Hit the lower yest. with baby brother (25) visiting from BC.

Got the Brown Roe all set Thurs night, lots of different sized bags & colours ready to go!...Of course it probably would have worked better if I hadn't left it in the fridge. :wallbash:

 

Well that just meant working other methods! :Gonefishing:

 

7 hours of: Gulp minnows couple different sizes, some trout flies (buggers etc), skinny Pink worms, few single Chinny eggs (from jar), Mepps spinners, Cleo spoons, Cast Master, Chrome Rattle-Trap, Pink/Purple jigs,...hmm think that was everything...Not even a sniff!! :(

 

Was great day to be out without a doubt, but man, was the bite ever off! Visibilty was at least a couple of feet as well.

 

The whole day, saw 1 steelie caught on a pink bag, and 3 lakers caught on monster sized jigs with plastic fish bodies. It seemed everyone we talked to was switching up between minnows & roe, but no takers.

 

I know I was getting down to the bottom because I broke off about a dozen times with the minnows & flies. :dunno:

 

Oh well, it was at least an awsome New Years Eve day to be out on the river!

Geez, doesn't anyone sleep off a hang over on New Years Day anymore! lol

 

Sounds like a great day, even without hooking into a fish. Nice scenery, fresh air and a little rain and drizzle to make you feel like the hardy type.

 

I didn't make out very well either today down in the Niagara but, like you guys, it was great to be out!

No hang over yet Mike, it was New Years EVE day! ;)

 

It was nice with the aroma of a few camp fires going on as well. Fortunately the rain actually held off until the trip home, so stayed nice and dry!

 

...Here comes the cold & snow again!

    • Ready for another adventure

      Ok, so the only thing missing is the kitchen sink LOL. My son and I had another wonderful weekend, did some fishing, exploring, and harvested some beaked hazelnuts. My CFMOTO is a year old now and I have to say I am super impressed, some of the trails we explored this weekend were through some pretty rough therein and this thing just eats it up. The power steering sure is a blessing for these old arms! We actually managed to wind our way through some very old logging trails, some place

    • Espanola? Any one local?

      Welcome to summer all!!! (well sort-of) Heading up with a buddy and his young lad to the Espanola area for a few days mid July. Have a few lakes I am looking at but having a devil of a time finding any real reports of the fishing (which I suppose is good). Our plan is to target Wally's and possibly trek in for a brookie or 2 if the logistics of the lakes work out. My buddies kid is just old enough to come with us so this isn't going to be hard core adventure. But we do intend to camp out th
