General Discussion / Boat Size Muskie Fishing
« Last post by Reel North on October 19, 2020, 01:52:45 pm »
Hey all. First post here.

Iím considering a move up to Gbay - around midland to Honey Harbour.

Iím in the market for a new boat am am down to either an 1875 Pro v Muskie or 2075 Peo V Muskie.

Iíve Muskie fished for over a decade, and am primarily a caster. I will troll as well, especially as fish move out to open water.

I like the Pro V Muskie bass style boats better than the standard ProV for the increased deck size.

Any thoughts on the right sized boat for the bay?

Thanks in Advance
Fishing Georgian Bay / Moon Bay Turnover?

Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if Moon Bay goes through A turnover period?  If so has it started or is has it settled?  TIA and tight lines!!

Recap of my last trip in the Hole.

I forgot to mention something about my last trolling trip in the Hole on Saturday Sept 26th.  We had a big 0/1.  We marked a few fish, but very few.  Didn't see a net raised.  Tried everything and every speed/depth.

On the way back to Penetang, decided to troll back through the shallow bottom of the hole, raising the riggers as we went.  Was running a spoon on one side, and a jumbo white glow Lyman with black dots on the other rigger.  Trolling along in about 60ft with riggers at 40, and that Lyman rod pops hard.  I grab the rod and there is a couple of strong pulls and "snap".  Obvious line break, so I pull up the limp line, crying about losing my Lyman.

Well the line had obvious abrasion right at the end. Just like a toothy critter cut the line.  I know the bottom there is mostly mud, so its not like it hit bottom.  And I am 90% sure there was a fish on for a few seconds.  I think I may have nailed a big Musky and got cut off.

So my ask is that if anyone catches a Musky with a Lyman in its mouth anywhere near the west side of Beausoleil, be a champ and let me have my Lyman back!  OR if you find a large size white glow Lyman, black dots and red cup face floating out there...

Thanks to all for the helpful info.  I have to give a particular thanks to those of you who are frequent posters and generous enough to share your wisdom and fishing stories which have provided a great escape from the pandemic.  Season is winding down (I donít ice fish) but will look forward to your posts between now and next spring. Tight lines!

This time of year is when it is generally at its lowest point. Can drop pretty quick. But as mentioned, the east winds have a lot to do with the extreme drop the last couple days.
Here is Collingwood levels for this month...
If you go back a month or two, you can see it has dropped about 8" from peak earlier this summer. Not enough though. Next year might even be higher....

Its not permanently down, just the "seiche" effect of the east wind pushing the water out and the normal fall drop.  Click the link to the right and top that shows current water levels for Parry Sound and you can see the drop/rise on a day that the wind shifts.  That link takes you to an hour by hour for the past 24 hours.

I have attached and interesting graph.  It is the Parry Sound waterlevels for August 1 to Oct 13th.  The vertical bars in the line graph are the variation in levels over that day.  The scale is "meters over chart datum".  So you can see that the water levels are staying up for now.  If you look at the big changes in a day, it is on the days that the wind shifts a lot somewhere on the system.  IF you look at yesterday to today, you see a huge swing as the wind shifted back to NNW and filled the bay again.

Shore fishing for trout is heating up, as temps drop fish get bigger. We hit small shaker trout all weekend barely big enough to take our roe sacks. Another few weeks and it will be prime.
River mouths are better action now.
You could try the coal dock in midland.
As for charter not many around. JP Bushey or  Rob Cadeau Come to mind. Both can be found on FB.

2 days of East or SE winds and both days were pretty strong will push that water away from the East side of the Bay. Let the winds die down or change direction and water levels will rebound

It looks to me like it dropped rapidly, especially on Monday, by several inches in Penetang harbour area. Is that a natural occurrence or deliberate (drawdown)? Just wondering if I missed the memo on that! I went out around noon and by the time I got back I could barely get my boat into my lift by 5pm.
