A bow from the Saugeen

Recommended Posts

Went on a drift earlier this week with Graham Bristow in search for some brownies. Unfortunately I think we were a little to late in the season for browns (although we had a few swipes) but the resident bows were willingly taking dries.. I decided to strap on the 10-22mm for pretty much the entire day. Not really a portrait lens, but I think it turned out pretty good. Only editing that was done was highpass overlay to clean things up a bit. Other then that it's untouched.

Thanks Chris, nothing you can do about the browns, just a return trip next year for a rematch! :)

With the warm weather settling in Bill you could consider a night drift. biggrin.gif

Yup, but the water temps are getting up there. I'd hate to land a monster only to have it floating belly up a few mins later. I think I'll put the trout on the back burner for this season until the fall. I've got lots of bass/pike pics to take :)

The stretches I used to fish in my youth Bill were pretty good through the summer and of course Browns are fairly tolerable in comparison to Bows and Brookies. But I suspect the stretch you're floating is further down stream from my old haunts and leaving them be till the waters cool is a wise and considerate choice. thumbsup_anim.gif

      Heading over to the on the water demos at iCast 2019 down here in Orlando FL. One of the biggest buzzes down here is about how the bow mounted trolling motor scene is going to change drastically. MotorGuide, Lowrance and Garmin are all introducing competitors to the current bow-mounted trolling motor king, the Minn Kota Ultrex! Super excited to see how the new Garmin Force trolling motor is going to work with my Garmin EchoMap Ultra units! Check it out on the YouTube video:  And o

    • Do you have a 14 - 15' aluminum boat with a bow mount electric?

      Just wondering what shaft length you have as a bow mount on an 14-15' aluminum boat? I'm looking at buying a new one and there are so many different sizes. I looked at the online suggestions, but are those measurements with someone in the boat or it being empty? I'm asking because one of the motors I'm looking at only has a 42" shaft; I think it's too short though. Can I get everyone's opinion on the new Minn Kota electronic foot pedals. Are they giving people the same issues as the older models

    • Spring bow rigging

      Was going to my local Sail to stock up on a few things to get ready for spring run rainbows; sinkers, swivels, gapped hooks, leader material 4-6lbs.  I'm usually successful using worms, blowing them up with a little air to make them buoyant, then thought...maybe a floating jig head will work.  Asked dude working the counter and, bam, so many ways to rig for rainbows from floats to drop shot to three way swivels. How do you rig up for your spring run rainbows? Thanks, Reef
