Was out last Saturday AM from about 6:30 in the Hole.  Didn't mark much but found some bait in a few spots with a few marks above.  No takers.  Gave up and headed over to Methodist to get a couple of lakers for dinner.   Definitely not spending enough time of the water this year.

Its no where near as good as Lake Ontario.  But the main difference is you can eat the fish and they don't taste like they came out of a sardine can.

I haven't posted in a while and this summer has been pretty lousy for me in terms of getting on the water.  Its hard to catch them from 180km away.

I was out a few times and marked some fish in the hole, but have only had one salmon on and didn't get it in.  Felt like a 10lber or so.  I have some time on the water coming up and will post a bit more.  I made up some meat strips and will break out that program again.  Its been a few years since I ran meat on G-Bay.  I tried it last Saturday evening and appeared to churn up a few streaks on the graph but no hits. 

I made the strips from 6 inch frozen sardines I bought at Terra (Asian grocery in Mississauga).  I fileted them into strips and heavily salted them with coarse salt and a bit of borax powder for a few days, then drained off the liquid and froze them in ziplock bags.  The skin stayed nice and shiny and the meat firmed up well. I only tried one strip so far and it held up nicely for about 2hrs of washing, so looks good.  When I raised it up to check for weed and to see if it held together, it dripped an oil sheen even after an hour or so.  So if scent is an attractant, they will work well.

Out at Meaford today.  Marked a few fish at 80ft in 100 - 105 FOW.  Nobody I talked to had any luck.

Run and gun. If you donít mark any fish , try another spot after 30 min. Never leave your riggers at the same depth longer then say 15 min, change by 10ft.
Run 2.4-2.8 and grace speed. Change baits often, canít go wrong with blues and greens.

Hi new to this message board and new to downrigging. I was out this morning near Christian Island with  no luck. I was in a hundred  ft and riggers were down 40ft and 60ft. Any tips were to fish around the area? My kids are getting frustrated with me  lol.

Out off Collingwood on Monday, nailed a 5 pound Rainbow on the cheater spoon, purple and green.  Fishing in 90 feet so I am assuming the spoon was around 45 feet down.  Tuesday hooked into a Salmon in 70 FOW.  Lines were at 60, 40 with cheaters on each.  Hit the deep lure at 60.  Marked all the bait at 60 feet.  Zero marks of anything out at 90.  Decided to stay shallower as a result.
