June 2018 Update -- Things are looking pretty silvery!
Greetings fishy folk!
Well, as I had assumed, the fishing is fantastic out here on Lake Ontario.
Not only did our Brown Trout bite not disappoint right out of the gate, but just a bit offshore a strong Salmon bite is happening...doesn't get better than that!
On board the Dixie Dandy it has been a typical Spring/Early Summer mish-mash of rods. As a true thermocline has yet to develop, we're left with a bunch of homogenized water in which fish are comfortable. Simply put, they're anywhere from 2 feet to 130 feet below the surface. This means spread out the spread!
Bites have been consistent on spoons, but now our attractors coupled with A-TOM-MIK flies have started to take off. Some A-TOM-MIK meat rigs have gone as well. Stand-by spoons like NBK, Diehard, Tuxedo and their UV variations have been the ticket. As far as flies, Hammer, Crinkle Green Glow and Stud have done the trick.
As for me, I have been kicking around on some inland waters for all kinds of finned critters...why not fish on my days off?!
Next order of business...fall dates!
I am starting to book up lots of September-November and want to make sure everyone who is looking to come up has the opportunity.
I will outline my available dates:
Early (6pm start) night fishing for salmon:
There are plenty of late starts (1230am) available, just contact me and we can find a slot.
Well that's my two-sense for now! I hope everybody has a fishy summer and I'm looking forward to spending some time on the water together.
See ya out there!
