  1. Got on the water yesterday at 6 and off by noon. The chop on the water, the breeze, the temperature and the partial cloud cover were close to ideal.

    Caught 4 fish all keepers: 3 Browns, 1 Laker. Also 2 misses. Although the bite wasn't super heavy it was spread out fairly evenly. All Browns were caught on #8 silver and black Rapala diving shad raps on spinning rods(no extra weight). The Laker on a Luhr-Jensen Coyote spoon using leadcore with 5 colors out (8' per color sink rate) This was my first time ever using leadcore - tried it for about 1/2 hour towards end of trip with the 1 Laker and 1 miss. Definitely very different than spinning reels.( If anyone knows of any how to videos /literature please let me know. Also recommendations for best/easiest knots for tying fluorocarbon leader to leadcore line would be greatly appreciated!)

    Best Brown and Luhr-Jensen spoon in photos.

  2. I launched out of Sheldrake at 7 this morning and was off a little before 1. All the action was in the first 3 hours. Landed 4 landlocks 16" to 19" (1 keeper) Also a couple of misses. All were  caught on the North side of the point  in water from 25' to 50'. Lots of bait pods in the same areas. When  the wind died down the action stopped. Trolled the entire time with diving Rapalas.( FYI : I switched all of the treble hooks on my Rapalas (and other lures) over to single hooks this year.) It's a great place to launch a kayak! Will definitely go there again. Thanks to everyone for all the input.

    I've kayaked out of Sheldrake a bunch of times - had decent luck both north or south of the point.  My choice of direction was based on the wind conditions more then what I was seeing on the humminbird.

    I'm heading up to Sheldrake tomorrow morning. Hope to be on the water by 7. Thanks to everyone for all your advise. If there are other kayakers who would like to fish together sometime that would be nice. I usually go out  during the week to avoid the weekend traffic.  I'll let you know how I do .

    Take care

  4. I have fished for trout and salmon almost exclusively out of Meyers Point from a pedal kayak with a trolling motor for the past 3 or 4 years. I'm thinking about trying a different location. Perhaps Dean's Cove or Long Point. I always fish relatively close to shore mostly flatlining Rapalas and Little Cleos. Last year I purchased a leadcore rod & reel but haven't used it yet. Any suggestions about where to go ; what direction to head ; over what depth of water to try etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Ed

  5. When I initially caught this fish I thought it was a Brown but now I'm really not sure( first 2 photos). This fish jumped way out of the water 4 or 5 times once I had it next to my kayak. Other Browns I've caught in recent years on Cayuga didn't jump. Sorry I don't have better photos. I wanted to get it back in the water as soon as possible.

    Thanks.

    P. S. I also caught what I think was my first ever decent Rainbow(I think?). Yesterday was a very active day on the water. I think the overcast skies, the nice chop on the water and an approaching rainstorm helped. 20200514_114230.jpeg20200514_114338.jpeg20200514_124905.jpeg20200514_165204.jpeg
