Sunday, Father’s day I was Joined by Mike, Abram, John and John’s boy Dakota, who is 7 years old. There’s nothing I’d rather do on Father’s Day than go fishing, and we left the dock around 6:30, and headed off to where I finished the night before. While I got set up we worked out a little deeper than what I wanted, but not too far, and pretty soon we were back on our sweet spot, but the fish did not want to cooperate. I ran 3 riggers, 2 dipsies, and 2 surface lines off the boards, and nothing. Finally with a little tweek I got the rods going, and we were back in action. We would stay and work the 90-110 area, with an occasional peek out deeper, most of the day. Suprisingly our MVP lure from Saturday evening never took a hit, but the other surface line pulling a spoon was taking hits for us. For the next few hours it would be a steady pick for us, and by 11:00am it slowed for the rest of the day, and we would only have a 5 or 6 more bites. Our box consisted of lakers, steelies, 2 small kings, and a coho. We released 2 fish back to fight another day, and these guys kept a nice mess of fish to split up for the dinner table. It was a beautiful day to be on the lake, and we had plenty of action. It was a real treat to have Dakota and his father on the boat, and I was very impress with Dakota’s diligence to watching rods and fishing. He reminds me of my self when I was 7. LOL
Another great weekend of fishing from Sandy Creek Harbor. I love fishing this time of year, always a good mix of fish, from the acrobatic steelies to the amazing freight train runs of big kings. You never know what a trip is going to bring. The aerial shows that the steelhead put on are just awesome too. The steelies are always out of the water, and sometimes have several impressive jumps before anyone even gets to the rod. Again we are having some great fishing, and the kings this years are huge, and are only getting bigger.
If you’re interested in a trip call or email me, I still have some weekend openings left. And if you're not a morning person a 4 hour evening trip is a great option for some excellent fishing opportunities.
Seeing a smile like that is one of the things that makes being
a Lake Ontario charter boat captain awesome. Nice fish Buddy!!
