  1. Guys have been fishing on the ice behind the fish hatchery in Kincardine. I think the ice will be to thin now with all the rain last week. The coming rain isn't going to help either.

    we have caught pike at the boat launch in point clark. You could try around there as well.

  2. Same as most, wipe rods and reels down.Make sure drags are loose.

    re-arrange lures again and again.

    Here's some pics of my rod storage cupboard.It is a little over 10' high and about 50" wide. Staggered central vac pipe for bottom holder and pool noodle for top holder.



  3. Hey GM,

    Yes I was assuming that they were foul hooked,I think because the one I landed was. They may have all been hooked in the mouth and I only landed the one that was foul hooked. Good point.

    A buddy and I went out yesterday again,68 fow and 41' down, we ended up 6 for 7.2 coho and 4 lakers. Biggest was approx. 6 lbs.

    All the fish except one were caught on lures I made. I made one the night before,similar to a chilly goose with an orange stripe and the other lure I made in the boat to copy that one. I named them orange goose and second attempt.

    A few trollers were getting walleye, lakers and coho yesterday. Nice mixed bag.

    Oh yea forgot to mention I changed a bunch of hooks and sharpened all that went in the water.



  4. Hey guys,

    My son and I were out this am,fishing 115 fow. We were 3 for 11.We got into a school of Coho and only managed to land one.We landed a laker as well as a pink.

    I was trolling around the 2.3-2.5 mph mark. A chilly Willy was the hot spoon on a cheater,rigger was down 75'.We lost all the fish about 40' behind the boat when the fish surfaced.The coho we did land was foul hooked.

    I'm assuming all the ones we lost where fouled hooked as well.We watched them do a couple of rolls then they were gone.

    What am I doing wrong?I tried varying the speed,added a trailer hook on the spoon,all no luck.



  5. That is awesome! We have a derby on right now, the fishing leading is a 22 lb chinook. Lots of 16 lb being caught. I'd say the average size seems to be I creasing a bit every year. Still have only been out twice this year , busy building the house. My son and dad went out a couple of weeks ago. They got 3 bows and a pink. Guys are starting to latch on to pickerel now in 65 fow. Hopefully get out this weekend.

  6. Hey Claude,

    I'm fishing out of Kincardine on Huron. I work with a guy who's brother in law runs a charter out of South Bay mouth. I'l try and get some info for you.

    I know he said the average size of the salmon is increasing and he seems to be doing good right now.

    Even where we are here they are getting bigger, looking healthy and are full of smelt.We haven't seen fish like this in quite a few years.I'm heading out tomorrow am to try my luck.

    Been building a new house so i've only been out once this year.Boated 2 lakers around 8lbs.Good size for the campfire.

    How fast, deep and what depth of water you fishing?

    If you are using riggers only, throw some cheaters on there to cover some more water.


  7. A buddy of mine has been out perch fishing and they are doing really well. Lots of 16" jumbos. Lots of minnows which we haven't seen in quite a while. The harbours are full of minnows, I suspect that the die off of the zebra mussels is allowing the bottom end of the food chain to come back. Lakers that have been caught this spring are overflowing with smelt which we haven't seen in a number of years as well. Chinooks in the double digits are being caught already which usually aren't seen until mid to late summer.

    This is good news for us over here!!!
