  1. Latest report:... Went out yesterday from Whitby and headed Westward in about 80-100 ft for the first couple hours of daylight. No action so I headed out to 200' and had no success out there. I was roughly south of Ajax/Pickering at that time. Got skunked =( However the good part was I had the girls (two daughters and my wife) out for a few hours and they had fun boating around, so overall still a great day. Just wish I had a couple fish for them to reel in. Today, I started in about 60' of water and worked the 60-80' range just East of Whitby. Saw a bit of bait fish and a few hooks but no action. I decided after about 2 hours to head back out to 370' of water due South of Whitby. Hooked 4 nice Rainbows, 2 on cheaters with the wonderbread lure and two on the dipsy with a white fly. So overall, another good day to be on the water. Still trying to find the kings... patience =D Still working on my callsign, but I'll let you all know once I get that figured out so you can ping me on the VHS. Here is another pic of my buddy holing a Rainbow.
  2. Okay so, yesterday was the first morning out. Rollers were rough on the back but it wasn't too bad. Fished mostly in the 70' - 130' range with little success. Two riggers and two wire lines. Went out again this morning, nice and calm so we headed out to around 280' and trolled out to 375' of water. South-south East of Whitby. It was still a slow start but we came onto some good rainbow action at around 10:00 in the 300' + waters. Magic colours seemed to be anything with a lot of speckled bright colour to it. "Wonderbread" on a cheater line was working great as they were up close to surface. Still trying to find the kings, must be a tourney this weekend because a lot of boats are pre-fishing from out of town. Saw a couple boats from St. Catherines. Anyway, here is a picture of a nice rainbow, I'll let you know when I find the big kings.
  3. Wind was up today from the South-West. Way to rough to be out there this afternoon for me. I got some more work done on the boat but didn't go out. Will try again tomorrow after work.
  4. Just got the boat into the slip today. A few finishing touches tomorrow and I'll be good to go. If the wind is right I will head out tomorrow afternoon/evening. Stay tuned!
  5. Yeah that doesn't surprise me, that's usually the case this time of year. I will let you know how the blue water fishing goes. I'll try my luck out there.
  6. I see about 144 views but no responses, so I decided to respond to my own post in case people are interested in reading. I asked around a bunch of boats in the area and most seem to be having a lot of success on both the Kings and the Steelhead right now. Nothing gigantic out Whitby way from what I can tell but steady fishing which is good. Both Riggers and wire line seem to be working behind a dreamweaver spin doctor doctor and a spoon following a twinkie rig, some where fishing cut bait as well. Started early in about 60-70 feet of water and worked out to deep water. The water temp and bait location seem to be changing a bit so if you find that you should be into the fish. I've had success in the past out in the blue water this time of year. I'm hoping to have the boat in the water this weekend and I'll let you know how it goes. If nothing else I'll wash some lures.
  7. My dad and I had some bad luck with our last boat, endless problems year after year and this year the 150 Merc went for a crap (oil injectors went faulty, alarm and shutdown system failed). We upgraded to a 2003 TROPHY 2509 WA with twin 150 Mercs and rigged for fishing. Boat is in Whitby and we will most likely be getting a slip there as well. Since I've been out of the action for a couple years I was wondering what the latest reports were like from anyone doing a bit of salmon fishing out from the Pickering/Whitby/Bowmanville areas? Excited to get back out on the water! Any tips would be great. Good luck on the water.
  8. If the boat is still for sale, shoot me a message. Definitely interested.
  9. I haven't been to the BOQ this year yet but a good friend of mine goes down regularly. He was fishing all last weekend and the fishing was tough. Mostly out of Belleville and Big Bay area. Just a couple pickerel and a few bass, very slow for this time of year. I wonder if the crazy weather we had this winter/spring has had an impact on the lack of fishing many anglers are experiencing right now. Hopefully things will begin to pick up. Let us know how you make out!
  10. Short report, got to Frenchman's bay only to find out that the power was left on in the boat and a dead battery. Headed her back home to clean and wax, will try again tomorrow hopefully with a charged battery this time.
  11. I haven't been out fishing from port darlington this year yet, but I went down there on Monday to talk to the guys (mostly from Quebec) who were down for the weekend and they were all saying fishing was very slow, not much action at all. Water temp still cold and much the same across the durham area from what I can tell. Going to go out of Frenchman's bay today and see how things are, I'll get back.
