So, Jim, come back to the question about two rods on GB, do you think it is impossible to push MNR for that?

Well it has been an amazing year for fishing so far on Georgian Bay. Many days with double digit lakers and some large ones at that!
Wow! That gets me nervous! If everyone around is saying getting salmons I'm still relaxed. I'm not much experienced fisherman and my gear is quite limited. But if there is possibility to catch lakers and I only was able to catch an odd one in 1.5 seasons on GB... that's makes me frustrated...

That is an Atlantic.  They are referred to as unicorn because they are not very prevalent despite stocking efforts.

Beautiful fish.

Caught this nice unicorn early season on lake O. It was extremely acrobatic and faught great. I released it due to the struggling population there, hence the name unicorn.
I don't know what is "unicorn"... Seems to me as brown... Is it not?

Superior has salmon, including atlantic salmon and pink salmon.  The St. Mary's river right at Sault Ste. Marie is popular for summer Atlantic fishing.
I was asking about Superior to compare it with GB. As Jim said alewife are doing poorly in GB and Huron as it is Northern range for alewife. I assume that Superior doesn't have alewife so it is interesting how strong population of salmons is in Superior and what is their diet.
So, Frank, you did mention Atlantic and pink salmons but not chinook and rainbow. Does Superior has a good population of chinook and rainbow?

Caught some nice silver fish this past week around the islands.
The leads off our balls has been minimum 150’ Stealth approach!

Your go pro shots might be better taken in the summer, not to say they won’t hit closer to the ball now but our hits have been coming with long leads.

Good luck. Look forward to seeing your videos.

Fishing Georgian Bay / Georgian Bay Lakers and Salmon

Well it has been an amazing year for fishing so far on Georgian Bay. Many days with double digit lakers and some large ones at that! The downrigging for salmon or bows has not been great. Actually we have not even caught one yet lol. We have tried inner structures and out to the islands. TONS of marks, schools of smelts, and endless lakers (once you find the bait) but nothing chrome. Not even a shaker!. Going to have to venture farther out I think to get into some chrome fish.
A few days were fun with the lakers when they were so thick you could stop and Jig them. John Whyte, James, Steve Bowles, Shrek and myself had a great couple weeks messing with them. As for the lakers this year they are deep. Lots of our fish are from 75 feet and deeper. We figured with the cooler water they would be up on shoals and shallower and that has not been the case. Many lakers were also filled with smelt which is good to see. Bite has been a spoon bite close and almost on bottom with anything that glows. We ran moonshine magnum spoons.
Hopefully wind dies down this week and we will head over to the outside of Christian island way and see if we can pick up some kings. The lakers were fun for a bit but reeling in a water logged boot is only fun for so long.

Have my underwater housing built for the gopro and we tested it the other day with fabulous results. Hoping to get some underwater strikes this year for the youtube channel. For anyone who follows the you tube channel some underwater videos will be coming! May have to test the housing on the lakers one last day just to see it in action.

When we get back from the outside of Christian I will report back how we did. Tight lines everyone.
