A Sort of Report of a Portly Speck

Recommended Posts

port-ly

1having a stout body; somewhat fat.
 
2. ARCHAIC
of a stately or dignified appearance and manner.
 
Seems appropriate.
 
Headed up North on Friday night and did some shore fishing for walleye.  Got a couple of nice ones including one real tank - looked like it belonged in Quinte.  No pic pics as it was snowin' and blowin' not to mention dark.  Knowing we were going for brookies the next day, I said to my buddy "wouldn't it be something to get a trophy walleye and a trophy speck in a 24 hour period?" 
 
Well wouldn't ya know it, as I was standing on shore facing straight in to the gale force winds contemplating how much longer to stick it out, I got bit.  I missed him the first time but he gave me another shot -thank the Lord.  I've seen bigger specks but they don't come any more handsome than this fellow.  
 
You'll have to excuse the hero hold but I was tryna keep my pants clean.  It seems he was happy to see me too lol.

Beauty, nice that there is now some lakes open after the traditional end of Sept closer, they do colour up real pretty in spawning  season. My years in Haliburton , took a few late Sept weeks holiday when the partridge opening week and the last week of specs overlapped, but they were not in full colour yet.

OMG was my 1st reaction. I have only even seen a few Speckled Trout in my life and were the size of that beasts tail. I thought I would see a pic of Mr. Bunk holding that behemoth. Photo shop? You both have a resemblance. Older bro? That's a compliment Charles.

Awesome speck! The larger ones can be a tough nut to crack late in the fall, but they dont come much prettier than that.  

Heres a little smaller one from a week back.  When you get lucky with a warm sun and calm winds in late fall you can end up having a bit of a feeding frenzy.

Thanks Guys.  That's a beauty hen there Joey.  But I don't recall any nice days this fall lol and it seems like it's already over.

Lol B, if I don't see you at the ice show, I'm mailing those floats.

    • A family and friends fishing report

      For the last 5 years in the summer my wife and I rent a cottage somewhere within a 2ish hour drive from Ottawa for a week of fishing and relaxing. March of last year our little guy was born and the trip has turned into more of a family vacation than a fishing trip as expected. Last year we found a cottage we really enjoyed with great fishing and decided to book it again for our 2019 trip. This year my good friend and his wife joined us on the trip which is always a lot of fun. The little guy is

      Hey Guys,  When I last left off, the boat had been put away in her early winter slumber. Its almost impossible to believe that its been 8 months since I put the boat to bed, now it makes me even more sad because that means we are only about 4 months away from putting the boat away again. Holy geeze. The 8 months have provided some pretty decent fishing as the guys and I have grown as anglers, we have really started to dial in on the fish, our standard has definitely risen. We have high

    • Quebec Trip Report

      Just got back from our 5 day trip to Lac Dassarat in Quebec. There were about 16 of us this year. Started out with one of the guys having his car smashed in a pile up the Friday before we were leaving; he persevered though and was able to still make it. We made the 6.5 hour trek, with the final 1/2 hour being on a very rough road. We limped in with a flat tire from a puncture. Thankfully the owner of the resort had all the tools to plug it; my buddy ended up putting the spare on to be safe for t
