Up and down, tooning on the rollers

Recommended Posts

I have come to the point that trusting these weather and wind sites means crappola these days. So I just get up,rig the toon and venture on my merry way. With that said,the wind was to be light out of the N/E. With a continuing  cold front that started yesterday. I get to my launch and the wind is more then just a bit light, but still do able on the toon. Temp was 8 deg which warranted the use of the hoodie this morning.   It was a cool rolly ride to say the least. 

 

 

The sky was looking like it was full of lava. Another great sight to behold.

Not really marking a bunch of fish, I was force to move a ton. Would mark, drop and they would be gone. The amount of bait was super crazy all morning. I could see the shinners on the surface. Would explain the terns diving all around me. Fish were tight to the bottom all morning. A cold front will do this here. Also the current was really whacked. I was still and my line was 45 deg going east.

After being out there for 4 hours moving about, I hit my last spot I had locked on the map and has produced. I was going to sit til it was time to get off. The current seemed to have died and I knew this would be a good thing. Well that decision payed off. I really like using my swim baits for the chase game,but a buddy tells me he has been getting them on the vibrato. SO, I drop one down, 30 ft from bottom. Letting the rollers do all jigging motion, I just sat and watch the screen. It was only 5 minutes and this red line comes streaking from the depths.  I didn't have to crank much as it was on the bait like stink. It was a good battle. At first I thought it was going to be that trophy laker. Dove right to the bottom an stayed there just thumping the rod down. He had my toon turning left,then right. I am pumped. Finally I start to gain a bit. Then the rod goes slack. No lost him. Reel and reel and the rod almost gets ripped out of my hands. Dives back down. These lakers are crazy crazy. I eventually get it top side, get the vibrado out of it,s yap,quick pic and back down he went. Not the size I thought for the fight he gave, still a respectable Simcoe greaser. As much as I like the big fight, it would be nice to hook up with some smaller ones for a change. Maybe Sunday morning. Oh it,s another Sunday morning..............

      I'm currently on week 2 of my extended summer vacation and have been hard on getting some cabin building done. First thing needed was a dry, shady and bug free zone to chillax in when the working was done.   Threw up this temporary shack in a weekend.   Now onto the cabin building segment. Took a lot longer than expected to layout the foundation. Drilled 1/4" holes in the granite to drop my nails into to run my string lines.   Then it was time to dri

      Surface temp this morning 69. This evening 72. Fishing was tough today. Had a young loon hang out next to the boat for about 5 min. Checked me out. Swam under and checked again. No fear. Didn’t reach for phone/camera in case he spooked. Great experience.

      Hi OFC, Got some unfortunate news that our beloved Muskoka family cottage burnt to the ground yesterday - nothing left...

    • We are down to 3 seasons here.

      Hi all, Like last year we went from summer to winter and skipped fall. We got a foot and a half of snow the first week of October, last year was the 3rd week. At least I got my boat put away in time this year! No raking leaf piles and jumping in them with Jack ,  instead we just built our first snow fort at the weekend. And its COLD! Last 2 weeks has not seen temps much above 0ºC, and some of the small ponds have already got shore to shore skims.............................
