May 30
Otonabee R
Black Crappie
Black Algonquin - 3/8oz


I got out for a few more hours (typical) in the evening and into dark.  Managed many rock bass, few perch, an OOS Bass and this guy.  Lost a bigger fish, it was pretty dark, maybe a Large Mouth, Walleye or something else.

Your crappie makes me happy :P
Glad to see you're getting out consistently - I think I'll just fish vicariously through you ha ha.

I went out on Bass opener, it was overcast and later got poured on, maybe had 5 hours on the water.  I would have stayed out longer but I was soaked, cold, we had a dinner party with the wife's co-workers and I really had to pee.  Lots of small bass <12", one about 12" and another 14", lots of rock bass, blue gills and few pumpkinseed.  Of course there is always one that gets away, likely 3lb.

Blue gill
Coon Lake
Tied Jig 1/8 oz (way to small working on some 1/4 and 3/8oz)



I was working a lily pad bay hoping for some largemouths, I kept getting hits, must have been swarms of these, I eventually hook a bigger one.
Pumpkinseed (on a 8 wt  ::)
Coon Lake
Deer Hair Frog Pattern


Largemouth Bass
Coon Lake
Either the small jig or a twister tail (kept switching)

Nice fish, maybe bump it up to a 9 or 10 wt with those pumpkinseeds lol. I can't believe he got that in his mouth!

That jig-fly looks like it would have some nice action with the fur in it - rabbit I take it.

These I think are the real challenges of this tournament, especially the wife's dinner party!

I have peed through the scupper in the foot well so that I didn't have to go to shore :D

July 21
Fallfish
Indian River
Muddler Minnow

The camera does a bad job of catching the pearly irridesence of these guy. 

July 25
Smallmouth Bass
Trent River
3" Mister twister tail (smoke)

My only fish caught of the day, should have looked somewhere else when I saw all the traffic on the river.  There was quite the current in the river, I crammed myself up on this dead fall to hold position.

Another Fallfish Yeah!
(had read that "Mr Muskie" ( Bill Craig )thought the
best muskie fishing was when the fallfish were running on his part of the Ottawa R. I
still think he might have them mixed up with Mooneye )
What lake did your splake come from?
( Half the fun near Ompah is finding the lakes..and need Crown Road permit )
Snag or Fish? Weed or Fish? Oh,Fish-On !

Hi Brent,

  I had to go through a swamp, through some woods and into a riffly section of the Indian for that fallfish.  Going back down was a lot more fun.  I picked up the splake in the same lake as you (Granite, Grindston, G-something).  I plan on taking the kids camping on schooner lake this summer and maybe a fall solo trip (never seems the time to do something like that).  I think the musky would target them (fallfish), the biggest I caught was 13"-14", but that was wet wading.
