    Night Eyes

    Nice job Mike. I spent the weekend working at a hunting camp on Grenadier Island. Wasn't far from Charity but it was windy and rough Friday and Sat.
  2. Got 26 early season geese this morning. Three were banded!
  3. Two off deep diving cranks and one off a stick bait using a very heavy homemade bottom bouncer.
  4. Fished by myself this morning and limited out in a couple hours. Largest fish is 29" and pushing 9 lbs. Not quite up to Quinte standards but a nice catch 10 minutes from home.
  5. I actually like goose if you know how to prepare it. Needs to be rare or cooked slow and moist. We even keep all the leg and thigh meat and grind it for sausage.
  6. I fished the river alone this morning and caught a decent limit of eyes. Not a lot of people take the time to learn how to catch them but they are certainly here!
  7. We've all had days that we should have stayed in bed. The last few times I've buried a hook I used the piece of stout line technique, depressed the barb and had a friend yank it out. It works great and I was back fishing in 5 minutes. Have use the method several times and it has not failed me yet. I now carry a piece of cord and a piece of dowel in the boat as a precaution.
  8. Hunted with a buddy this morning and the birds decoyed well we killed 12 but he left before I got a picture of them all. Layout blinds in hay lots did the trick.
  9. Goose opened on Sept 1 we got 19 that morning. Two days later we got 12. We are hunting cut hay lots that we've scouted and are using 3 dozen shell decoys and a few wind socks and a dozen silhouettes. Shooting out of layout blinds takes a little getting use to but can be very effective
  10. I used PVC and it couldn't handle the cold weather . Went to conduit pipe and it worked well. Used burlap as covering (I had some) and it works ok but does get wet and is not wind proof
  11. After first fish with riggers your addiction will grow and your wallet will shrink!

  23. Still haven't been to the lake. Peter and I may try this week.
  24. I fished the river yesterday morning ( as I do most mornings)at Alexandria Bay. Early morning the bass were chasing bait up to the surface in 12-28 fow. I trolled Shad raps and caught a couple bass and a decent walleye. After the sun got up the fish went deeper and I was catching smallmouth in 50-70 fow. Also caught a nice walleye on a jigging spoon. The smallmouth often are deep this time of year and I've caught them as deep as 120'. Usually 60-90' where there is current and a change in depth. You can drift with 1 ounce weights and use crabs, minnows or worms but gobbies will gobble the worms. You can also use plastics on the same rigs. Even at those depths they will grab 4" Senkos but you need to get them near the bottom. Jigging spoons are effective . I use 1 1/2 oz. and snap jig as I control drift with my trolling motor this is a very effective way to cover an area and is effective for smallmouth and walleyes. Largemouth fishing in Lake of the Isles and Eel Bay is generally good. Fish in 12-14 fow. There are also many small pike there. Generally you can catch largemouths in this shallower water with plastics, spinner baits or poppers (early in the morning) Look for holes or pockets in the weeds or fish just off the weed edge. Also try near shore in the slop with Frog baits. For smaller pike try the same spots. Erratic retrieving a Long A Bomber, and Mepps spinners work here. To get larger pike I'd try the deep edge off the weed beds near drop offs. Drifting live bait works well as does casting jig. The fishing is starting to crank up and you shouldn't have much trouble catching lots of fish this time of year.
  25. Very cool alternative to fishing the big pond. I've done a little Kayak fishing and it's a blast being towed by a big fish. Wait till you hit your first mature king!
