June 12th at Port of Whitby

Recommended Posts

Visiting brother in Whitby. Bringing my 22ft center console with down riggers and want to try Lake Ontario.

Have the 4 trolling rods with flashers, spoons and 20lbs line.

First time down on Lake Ontario so any tips towards a fun day fishing would be greatly appreciated.

Well, Saturday was a right off due to the weather, but Sunday was terrific. Armed with only what I had read elsewhere and some advice from a friend who has fished Lake Ontario before, we had a great day.

Brother and I headed at at 5:30am from the Port of Whitby.

We started in 80ft of water, trolling 45ft and 50ft down.

small silver flashers and blue/silver lures.

First 10 mins and we get our first salmon at 2lbs.

We took some pictures and put it back.

We made a couple more passes before heading out to a depth of 215ft.

We saw fish at depth of 90, 70 and 55ft.

In total, we landed 5 salmon. The smallest 3lbs and the largest 4.5lbs.

We took more pictures and tried different colors but blue/silver was the day winner.

We even lost on that cleared the water and made us both roar....before swimming away. How large we don't really know but it was a shame.

So, I'm sharing my info and looking forward to more trips to Lake Ontario.

Totally agree. We are custom to fishing on Lake Simcoe, so downriggers and fishing Lake Ontario was brand new to us.

It was a terrific day out, very flat, overcast and the action was good.
