Images

Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Talked to Tommy and made a plan for fishing down the east river. We met at the launch early enough to start fishing at 8:30. While he worked some midriver structure downriver of me I began a slow…Read More

In the last 5 weeks I've headed down to the river 3 times and haven't caught anything for my minimal effort. Staying in front of Strawberry keeps my interest for about 2-3 hrs before I'm sick of it.…Read More

Patriot Day Report-9/11

Talked to Tommy and made a plan for fishing down the east river. We met at the launch early enough to start fishing at 8:30. While he worked some midriver structure downriver of me I began a slow troll upcurrent along a steep edge. Twenty minutes later the first fish of the month is in the net, waiting for me to get the GoPro and new light ready for filming a quick practice measurement. I'm definitely happy with the night video compared to past attempts.  A quick release and back to fishing.…See More

Full moon attempt

I went out Tuesday and Wednesday night intent on giving the east river a fair chance. It didn't go well either night. The weeds were building up on the weed catcher rapidly both nights. Each trip produced a single rip but the fish failed to hookup. Might have to try the harbor as I'm burned out on Strawberry. Sure missing the Canadian side..See More

Motivation

Decided to join Tom zigzagging back and forth in front of Strawberry last night. After a few hours he went home fishless and I figured I might as well clean weeds for awhile and went down the east river. I wasn't disappointed and caught enough of them to have my fill. Let the lure back after clearing another ball of weeds and thought I had dropped right back into a big cluster so jerked the rod forward hoping to clear them. The feel of headshakes let me know it wasn't weeds. I quickly gave a…See More

Past 35 days

In the last 5 weeks I've headed down to the river 3 times and haven't caught anything for my minimal effort. Staying in front of Strawberry keeps my interest for about 2-3 hrs before I'm sick of it. The east river seems foreign to me and the last trip down the weeds sent me home after less than an hour. Guess my January plan of grinding hard this year ended when Canada closed the border. It seems like I spent more time reading last months newsletter than I did fishing..anxiously waiting for the…See More

Fishing report 7-7-20

Decided to follow Tommy up to Strawberry last night. East river hasn't been generous to me so far. Shortly after 10:00 I caught a 34"ish beautifully spotted muskie. Fish unhooked itself, quick water measurement and when I dipped the net the fish shot out and straight down. Tommy hooked up a bit later and netted a 43" that snagged up near the rim and luckily didn't get away. That one needed some time before it disappeared below the surface. Water was 75°. Sure hope it doesn't get any warmer..See More
