How was the derby?  I'm curious about the numbers of fish entered and size.   It was a great day yesterday.

We got first place with the 12.9 salmon in the picture. I was fishing with Dan. Last I heard Vern was leading with a 6lb+ rainbow.  I wasn't able to stay for the weigh in due to my wife organizing a family bbq the same day. We caught 2 salmon on the Friday and 0 fish Saturday.  I think Saturday the weather was too nice but it was our first time this year getting skunked.

I will say this, if you like fishing salmon or rainbow next year join RAY fishing tournament. It's an amazing time and all the guys are great people. I look forward to it all year. I told the wife next year don't book anything in the middle of August :) Maybe canuck or shrek can say how many salmon where entered.

I fished it too. I came 2nd with a 9.6lb salmon caught in the last 15 min.
Friday was a tough troll bc of the winds and big waves and Saturday morning was a bit bumpy too.
I went 1/6 on Saturday all on anchovies, fish were either in 75/95 or 85/160.  Most of my action was in deeper water in the mid day sun. For some reason the fish just wouldn't hang on.  Lost one at at the boat that may have rivalled your 12.9 but the line snapped!!
Bows were caught on Friday.  Andguys caught some salmon on Saturday but nothing big. There was a 9.2 and a few in the 8lb range.
Not a lot of fish caught due to Fridays weather. 
Great little tourney with good food and lots of draw prizes as well.  Ray and Shrek put on a good show. Look forward to next year.

Congrats on the big fish.  I'll keep an eye on this board for next years tourney.  Hey Krawler, that big fish at the side of the boat sounds like a fish story to me. Lol.

Hahaha all truth!  But I guess we'll never know the true size.  Stupid habit of mine is to run same leaders over and over without checking for kinks.

I tried deep Saturday.  I was marking fish coming up from 140 up to 100 looking at my bait and diving right back down. They had lock jaw for me on Saturday. Even tried gunning the boat when they would come after it but no luck. Just a knock off. As for the Friday was the first time I thought I might get sea sick on georgian bay. Had to take waves on an angle so they wouldn't go over my bow. Wish I didn't miss RAYZ afterwards. Last year was a blast!! Will definetly be there again next year if these guys put it on again. I think we have Smiath from this messaged board talked into going next year too :)
