Dont go far from wasaga. North, NW and NE winds as of late have pushed warm water south.  Follow the winds, 60-100 fow.  Summer depths or higher in the column, long leads, standard size spoons.  Only other ingredient needed is time, you will find them.

We got out yesterday, beautiful weather out there.
Launched at the marina in wasaga and had a bad start with backing in too far and getting trailer hung up on ramp. Warning if you go there, ramp is very short  with a big drop off the back. Can’t see it due to low water visibility.

Finally started fishing around 10 am, fished 10- 4 and went 0/2. Tried leadcore, planer/leadcore and riggers. All pulling NK spoons. Both hits came on the rigger, one 40 ft down over 70 fow the other near bottom in 65 ish. Fished from 50-110. First fish was a good salmon , only on for a few seconds. Second was a shaker, lost at the net.

It was great to be out working out the gear kinks and just enjoying the beautiful bay. Looking forward to a good season, my son is eager to go back and get those fish!! He was heartbroken at the losses but that’s the learning journey of a new fisherman.
