  1. Where is the trench? Are you talking about Stony Point? Sent from my SGP512 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I think so. I used the dodger because I didn't have a spin doctor the same colour as my dodger. Sent from my D6603 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I was fishing in 110 ft of water with the rigger set at 55 ft when I caught my Chinook on a fly with a dodger. Sent from my D6603 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. In all honesty, I hadn't realized that the derby had already started. It was only after boating the fish and checking the derby start date on my phone did I realize the enormity of my mistake. I safely released the fish but am regretting not having done my research and having bought a derby ticket before heading out as I had taken my wife to Gagnon's to renew her fishing license. I even bought a new spin doctor and discussed salmon fishing with the guy at Gagnon's and the fact there is now a new $4.00 "service fee" tacked onto the cost of a fishing license/outdoor card plus tax on that $4.00 "service fee".
  5. I was out the other day (08 July) and had a couple of knock offs, one shaker and one chinook around 30 lbs. I too launched from the Gordon Street ramp. Was my first sizable chinook of the season. Previously I only had caught one small coho. Has anyone noticed this year that the fishing regulations has cut possesion of rainbows from 5 fish to 2 fish? Why the drastic cut?
  6. I was out last Sunday and had two knock offs and a Chinook about 22 - 23 lbs. Caught in 138 fow 47 down on a green and blue fly with a spin doctor.
  7. Was out today out of Whitby and fished from 70 to 110 fow. Marked a couple of fish in the 70 range but no takers. Very first time I was skunked.
  8. We were out last week and boated some amazing fish up in the late thirties and earlier forties. Never seen such big fish in my life other than by the side of the local rivers, dead after spawning. So far this season we've boated at least five fish 35lbs or better and many many lesser fish ranging from 12 to 25 lbs.
  9. Go figure eh? I for one can't believe there is such a fantastic fishery 10 minute from home. Hope to out tomorrow and Tuesday.
  10. I went out the other day and was skunked for the very first time ever! Few days prior we boated two fish, one around 35 lbs and a monster of 38 lbs. Just barely fit in the net!
  11. Many thanks for the fantastic link and well wishes. I hope you have a safe and productive outing on the water Saturday.
  12. Sorry to hear that the salmon weren't to be had. I hope to get out Saturday afternoon and if I manage to get any fish, I'll post news, and hopefully, some pics on here. I like your link and here are a couple of links I check before I head out: http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/marine/forecast_e.html?mapID=11&siteID=08207&stationID=45159 http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/glcfs.php?lake=o&ext=swt&type=N&hr=00
  13. I was out the other day with my son, but he was feeling ill so we only fished for an hour and still managed to bag a big Chinook in the mid to late teens. As I was preparing to set the riggers again, I had let out about 50' of line and was getting ready to set it on the Black's release that I favour, when a fish nailed my spoon with the line still wrapped around my finger! Fortunately I was able to drop the line before I made a mess of my finger but I wasn't able to get the rod out of the holder and set the hook in time. Oh well next time! Still lots of fish in 200' of water but the Chinook we caught was down 120'.
  14. I was out yesterday and it was slow while fishing shallower waters (40' to 100') so after an hour or two without a single strike I moved to deeper water (approx 200'). Fishing 50' to 65' deep, I promptly caught a beautiful Rainbow about 12 or so pounds followed up by a 12 pound Chinook. I caught both fish on spoons with a dodger, one on a blue/orange-yellow pattern and the other on a green/black dotted pattern with pink iridescent tape. I tried to match the dodger colour to the spoons (both fish were released). Some people advised me to fish shallow but the Chinooks that are shallow, are dark and half dead. I think I'll stay deep for the next couple of weeks while I can still get out on the water before the weather turns and makes it more difficult. I was hoping to go out today, but the strong wind warning may put an end to that. I also fished shallow as I was hoping to catch a Brown as I haven't caught one yet and was wondering if anybody on here has caught Browns along the Whitby/Ajax/Pickering shoreline?
  15. Hi Joseph, what do you consider to be deep? I've fished to around the 250' mark and have had lots of luck in various depths of water from 90' to 220' of water being the most productive range. How deep would you recommend as the autumn progresses?
  16. Don and Missdemeanor, many thanks for all the sage advise. I hope to be out tomorrow and Friday trolling. I'll let you know if I get any. If I do, I hope to post some pics and hopefully, I get something comparable to the great pics Missdemeanor sent me!
  17. I too am looking to catch some browns and lakers (North Shore, Whitby area) and would like to learn about tackle and techniques for locating and catching them. I have a huge collection of tackle for pickerel/bass and was wondering if I could use rapellas and similar stick baits for taking brown and lake trout? Any advice would be appreciated.
  18. Nothing in Duffin's really? I was told by the guys at Tightline in Pickering that the fish were running but they were surprised as it's kind of early for them. Usually the Sept rains gets them running.
  19. Where do you get the materials for making your trolling flies if I may be so bold to ask?
  20. I've heard that they have entered Duffin's Creek in Ajax and the Bowmanville Creek too. I haven't fished the creeks as of yet since I'm still catching them in Lake Ontario south west of Whitby.
