SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS

====================

Well for only my thrid time out this season, I'm still having trouble getting fish to the boat. I'm seeing lots on my Lowrance Elite 5 fish finder, but just can't seem to get anything to bite. I've talk to alot of people and the advise always help, I see more fish on the finder but still nothing to the boat. Today I used everything I had and every style, from spoons to flies to even swim baits(I'll try anything), even changing from 40-60fow to 150-200 to 220-240fow, also trolling speed and direction. But at the end of the day the only one that hit and was caught was a 17.8lbs salmon on a silver fly. So I ask this to others who were fishing around the Port Credit area, was it the same luck or am I still new?

If your poppin browns your likely too slow to trigger bigger kings as well as fishing too warm of water, thats not too say that your doing anything wrong but based on my experience. Im not sure what depths your fishing but ya gotta find the cooler water. Browns like it warmer, have a look at a species temp chart and you'll see. I'm no pro buddy but thats just my two cents hope it helps check out the surface temp maps on the site.

Good luck and tight lines!

Went out of Port Credit last Tuesday & ended up 9 for 11. One small King, two 15 & 17lb, & all the rest were bows between 5 & 10lb. Started off in 150 & as soon as I got the lines down we had a double. One on the dipsy out 200' on a 5.5 Apex "Popcorn" & one off the rigger down 40' on a 4.5 chrome/green scale Apex. We moved out into 220' & got a 10lb bow down 110' on 11" Bullfrog & meat. We had hits on every rod except one, including two dipsys. All our hits came on Hot Spot products including 11" Bullfrog flasher, 5.5 Apex Watermelon, 5.5 Apex Popcorn, 4.5 Stinnson & 4.5 chrome/green scale Apex's. The one 5.5 Popcorn I had set up 5' above & behind tandem Agitator flashers on the outside port rigger. The only rod that didn't get a hit I had a 5.5 Apex Rocket which for last season & this season so far has been my top producer. Yep! I'm the Hot Spot Pro Staff for Ontario but I don't shoot the bull as far as what I get the fish on. If they come on another product that's what I say they came on.

2X on bumping that speed up. On our side of the pond we go 2.9 (surface speed) and 2.5 (down speed if you have a probe).

Try an entire outing keeping your speeds at these numbers and you should put some in the net.
