Back from the Cottage

We had a good 2 weeks. The fishing was tough this year - we really had to work for them. I was hoping for 100 walleye but I think we ended up with only 67. The water was warmer than usual (72-74deg) and the level was about a foot lower than usual. This is what the locals were blaming for the poor fishing. Here's David and I posing after a good evening of fishing. It was great having M/L and G/P and all the cousins for the 2nd week.

Canada Day

Had a pretty good evening fishing. 5 for 6 with one decent sized King, some bows and a couple small chinooks. Topped the evening off watching fireworks from the boat. This was really cool.

Cousin Fish

Fished 140 -180 and 100FOW around dusk. Steady action of bows and small chinnys but no big kings. I think we were something like 10 for 13, which was good for the kids but I would have liked a pig or two.

Here's David and Jonus with the biggest Rainbow.

Sept 3 - Port Maintland

I had the day off and Leigh went to the zoo with Mike & Karlene and kids, so David and I had a free day to go fishing before his hockey game at 6pm. I haven't posted the last few trips but the salmon fishing has been brutal, can't get any big ones - just bows/cohos/small chinnys out in the blue zone. So we decide to give Lake Erie Walleye a shot.

Launched at 8:30am. The chatter on the radio indicated that fishing was poor but we seemed to have a better day than most. Went 2 for 3 on walleye and also got a drum and a perch. All the walleye were around 72 FOW. The big one hit the dipsey with about 180' out and the other two came off the rigger down about 55'. We were off the water by 2pm. Fun day.

Bronte Aug 2 - PM

We went out with Brian and Logan Rosa. We rocked around in the choppy water water out deep with no hits. Decided to move into around 100 FOW and started taking fish. Ended up 7 for 9. All hits on meat and plugs.

Here's David hugging one. It came in with a lamprey which we detached and killed. Note the large red spot.

Fishing on the 4th of July

Beautiful evening on the water. We went 2/3. 180 FOW down about 76' spin doctor and meat. The one that got away took my favourite spin doctor and meat head. Ticks me off.

David still likes hugging those bad boys.

First Boat Ride of 2009

We all went out this afternoon for a little ride and a little fish. Everything went well with the boat and we even got a Salmon - it was fun landing this guy as we didn't have the net with us but we got er done. She hit a purple thunder spoon 85 down in 135 FOW.
It was a little choppy out there but beauty sunshine, not much boat traffic and another Jays win (we were listening to the game on radio).

Lake Erie

I never got a chance to post it but Leigh, Julia went out of Hamilton Sunday and went 1 for 2 in a couple hours of fishing.

Tonight my brother Dave and I went out of Port Maintland for Walleye. We went 3 for 3. 74 fow, 50+ down. All 3 came on dipseys with worm harnesses. Here's me with 2 of the 3 fish.

Lake Temiscaming Cottage 2008

Another great year at the cottage - this year we went for 2 weeks. Excellent time! We love this place more and more every year. Once again the fishing was outstanding. We lost count of the number of fish caught but it was over 75 walleye with some Pike and Perch as well. Hear's some pictures.

This year the hot pattern was trolling near the middle with the current, down 12-35 feet. Wiggle warts (not Mag warts so much), thundercranks on planers and hot & tots on the riggers.

Awesome time. Hopefully we can do 2 weeks again next year.

Rough Evening!

The girls bailed out on David and I so we called up Logan and his Dad from David's hockey team and they were good to go. Was rough out there on the water! Meat was the ticket 90' down in 140-160 FOW. Went something like 4/7.

Here's Brian fighting one with Logan looking on.

Here's Brian posing with another one.

David's first Race

David has been training with Leigh for a 5k race. Yesterday (Canada Day) was the big race and he did AWESOME! He ran hard the whole race without stopping and showed an amazing sprint at the end. We're still waiting for the official results to be posted on the internet but his time was somewhere around 25min! I didn't see any other kids finish ahead of him.

Leigh won the 3rd place prize in her category!

2 pictures before the race and one after the race:
