  5. Team Superdad Sweps Walleye World Junior Division Once again, my son and grandsons arrived at Hay Bay all psyched for the Walleye World Derby. Everyone was fully prepared with winter clothes and boots to face the impending rain and cold. Prior to going fishing, the mandatory camp picture was taken. We hit the water on Saturday morning and headed for the fishing grounds (Cement Plant) and set the rods and boards and were fishing at 0915. The mood on the boat was high and everyone was anticipating the first strike. It didn't take too long and the board disappeared. Have we got the winner!!!!!!!! It was William's turn at the rod and he slowed reeled the board to Grandad and brought the fish to the surface and the awaiting net. It's a nice fish. The scale showed 7.5lbs and new Personal Best for William. The decision was made to take the fish to Perfect Vue to enter the fish and it was registered and William topped the Junior Walleye with a fish at 7.34lbs. What a great start. We headed back out to see if we could get another one. We trolled several passes and as the clock was winding down to our departure for home, I had begun to reel the rods off one side and as I got the second rod stowed, the outer board fired and Albert was on the rod. Dave reeled in the inner rod and Albert followed the instructions for slow reeling and no jerking the rod. Took the planer board off and the fish surfaced and was swept into the net. Another good looking walleye. The scale showed about 7lbs, so we had a pair of entries into the Derby. If you are wondering what are you using - here's the shot of the fish and the lure. We were off to Perfect Vue Weigh station again, these guys are getting to know us. The fish was active in the holding tank and it tipped the scale at 7.49lbs. This one is bigger than the first. With the registration, the computer updated and the first two places were our two fish. This was a personal best for Albert, two PB's on the same morning - What a Day!!!!!!!! After lunch, the agonizing period began as we watched the leader board to see if someone else landed a bigger fish. The afternoon rain kept us at camp, as we were drying all the gear from the morning. Going to bed, the boys were still watching the board and they were fearful of being bested during the night. Sunday AM found that nothing had changed. Back to Long Reach to try a different technique. Everyone got their rods and we had them rigged with Uzick Spinners. We trolled off the High Shore opposite the entrance to Hay Bay, marking a lot of fish and then Albert said he thought he had a bite and with some reeling, the rod bent and a fish was on!!!!! Reeling slowly he brought the fish up and Dave slipped the net under the fish and it was ours. Another nice walleye, tipped the scale at 6.5lbs. Not big enough to upgrade the leader board. Back to camp for lunch and clean up as we planned to head to Trenton. Arrived at the big tent in Trenton and the boys were still in the lead as the clock wound dow to 1600 hrs. After the 4PM deadline passed, congratulations were offered to the two boys. The presentation ceremony took place and William as 2nd prize winner received a bow & arrow set. Then the winner was presented with a fishing charter that is being looked forward to with great enthusiasm. Everyone is happy with the results. I would like to mention that William showed outstanding fortitude when his fish was displaced on the leader board. He told us that it was a team effort and everyone is on the same team. It made Grandad very proud for his attitude and ability to show team-spirit. Plans are being looked at for next year, as Albert will leave the Junior's and look to continue his fishing in the Senior Division. The weather wasn't great but the fishing made for a great weekend, lots of fun, fishing and feasting. Stay Tuned David (Grandad) aka Superdad
  6. Water temp in Adolphus Reach was 52 degsF last Tuesday Fish appear to be lingering in the big lake.
  7. I think there may be browns off Wolfe Is, I would look for sandy shallows in March & April and fish them with planer boards. There are browns in the North Channel and they must be around Amherst Is also. Shouldn't be any different around your island. Lotsa luck David aka Superdad Kingston, ON
  8. Mike I think that because I'm in Canada, the URL takes me to the Canadian version thru The Sports Network rather than ESPN. David aka Superdad Ps Perhaps I'll start a Quinte group there.

  13. There was a post by Grateful Angler on quintefishing.com, I'll add some pictures and show what a great day everyone had and the joy of the live release derby. It was the Ninth Annual Live Release Fall Classic Walleye Derby, In Support of University Hospital Foundation Kingston - Kingston General Hospital (Kid at Christmas) A portion of each ticket is set aside and before Christmas, those Kids in Hospital all receive presents from this fund. The Derby's funds are added to the fund so all the kids receive some joy at the holiday season. Thanks to Les Corbay as the organizer of this well attended event, the tickets are generally sold out in August. As Paul mentioned, the 10th edition is planned for expansion to permit more fishers to attend. Stay Tuned for announcements in the summer. Enough of the sales pitch, here's the drill on the Derby. All boats were required to come to the launch ramp at Shermans Point for a live-well inspection and at 0630 the opening salvo of firecrackers told everyone, "It's fishing time" The boats roared away from the area and from our vantage point, everyone was heading towards the ferry. Laker John and I motored past the ferry to witness a flotilla of fishers in boats of all sizes. We began fishing at 0700 setting four lines and trolling towards Keith Shoal. We marked a lot of fish in 70 - 80 feet, but we couldn't attract anything. As we trolled, I did a count of the boats that I could see from the ferry down past the lighthouse and over to the Bat-cave. I counted 65 boats - that's a lot of rods in the water. The day was absolutely gorgeous, sun shining, no winds (especially after Friday); however the winds began out of the SW and we were fearful of a repetition of Friday, so we headed back to Hay Bay. We trolled up and down and tried big lures, small lures - we ran thru our favourites, but we couldn't attract a strike. We landed at Shermans launch and there were only three walleye and a rainbow having been weighed, as the clock ticked down towards 1330 hrs, the boats roared into the launch ramp with livewells brimming. This years fish count was much better than the last couple of years. Les the organizer was busy weighing fish and releasing them to ascertain they were alive and kicking. Any fish not swimming away to survive would have been disqualified, ALL fish released were survivors. With the closing of the weigh-in, the assembled throng moved up to the clubhouse and reviewed the names on the leader board and had a look at the prizes and availed themselves of the Chili and the Stew. As the fishers were sated with food, Les began the awarding of the cash prizes. He announced the winner with a walleye of 11.1 lbs. There were a chorus of cheers for Bob Fendley, a long time supporter of the Derby. The second place was awarded to Doug Orton. Doug weighed a fish of 10.6 lbs. Congrats Doug Third place was Sam Callum with a walleye weighing 9.6 lbs. Way to go Sam, nice fish. The balance of the prizes were drawn from the tickets and everyone received a trip to the prize table. A special prize of two cases of 5 Year Balderson Cheese for the last ticket drawn - well the donor - Les Corbay won his own prize. In the spirit of the fund-raising event, Les announced an auction for the 20 lbs of cheese. The bidding went $20 - $40 - $60 - $80 and was sold for $100 and that amount would be added to the total fund for Kids for Christmas. What a great idea and what a great donation. The boats were being pulled from the water and crowd hit the road and although we were first boat in the morning, we were the last to taken out - no problem. The weather gods smiled on the derby and it was super. Everyone is looking forward to the 2014 version of the Fall Classic. The organizer asked me to thank everyone who came to the derby and to all who donated prizes. David aka Superdad
