Fishing goals for the winter

Recommended Posts

Some people set fishing goals each season and I am one of them. I don't get disappointed when I miss them but I sure am happy when I reach them. Anybody here in the same boat?

 

Here are the "attainable" goals I have set for myself for 2011 ice fishing.

 

Lake trout over 5lbs.

At least couple walleye over 5lbs.

Perch over 12 inches.

Ling to keep and taste for the first time.

Splake any size.

Also, stay away from lawyers and lampreys

Find some open water and catch some steelhead. Lay a beating on the whities and lakers on Simcoe as well.

It's been about 15 years since I was last ice drinking fishing. I would actually like to get out and fish for real as opposed to sitting all day in a hut and getting hammered. I'm too old (& smart?) for that any more.

Anyone interested in trading a day on the ice (you provide the gear) in exchange for a July/August day on LO for salmon & bows (my boat & gear)?? I'd really like to experience true ice fishing. BTW, I can be available any day of the week.

 

Regards

Simon

My goals for this winter are quite simple, really:

 

1. Finally get off my duff and order new neoprenes from Cabela's (maybe this afternoon, now that I'm thinking of it)

2. Spend some quality time on the West Coast renewing my love affair with ocean-going steelhead (trip booked, early Feb)

3. Spend some quality time in the Gulf of Mexico renewing my love affair with with wahoo, dolphin and king mackerel (trip booked, late Feb)

4. Keep a straight face every time I see the Loafs still holding steady at 26th place in a 30-team league

5. Hope for an early spring so I don't have to ice fish at all

    • carp fishing kawartha lakes/London area.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • Fishing the Yukon June 2019

      We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new. My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week. We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots
