Really is a cool fishery you guys have up there! Our salmon season is delayed by 3 months so I’m jealous you’ve already gotten some chrome!

A beauty Laker in full spring colours.

The King Salmon are late to arrive...but they'll be here...eventually. 

Lakers until then. Even the Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout have been strangely missing. 

'17 D4 for the journey.

I'm a bit envious.  Our fresh water is still a bit too thick for boats just yet.  

Those are really nice fish!!  Congrats!

Was able to find some King Salmon this morning. Managed two real nice spring Kings as well as a couple smaller ones. My father sorta blew that first photo but we release them immediately so I don't check for accuracy lol. I gave him a good ribbing...he improved for the second photo.

Real small window this morning. On the water at 5am and off by 8:30am. It was foggy, cold, damp, and rainy. That was before the winds picked up. One of those mornings when you wonder what you were thinking....

Then a fish hits and it makes it all worth while. Getting these in the boat solo is quite a challenge!

Nice! Ive made many trips to Canada for fishing. Been several years though. Ever since I bought lake home in northern WI I feel I need to be there. Our lake is mainly smallies, walleye and musky. Used to do alot of trips out of Atikokan east of Ft Frances. You do any musky fishing?

Sorta.

I've fished lake st clair and some of the Kawartha lakes for muskie. 

But the fish of a thousand casts is just that.

I enjoy muskie fishing but I enjoy great lakes salmon as well as warm water bass and walleye much more.

St Clair smallmouth trip is on my bucket list. Yep Muskie hard to catch. We throw bulldawgs for em in Wisconsin. Friend of mine is exclusively a Muskie guide and have learned a lot from him. Our biggest so far is 42 inches. The DNR shocked up a 55 incher in my lake a few years ago. Most of those bigger ones are never caught and just die off eventually.

I was fortunate enough to learn how to fish Lake St Clair, which is a muskie factory. Our biggest was 48", but with St Clair, it is common to catch 5 to 10 muskie in a day. It's all trolling...and rather boring. 

 

But real muskie fishing, like you suggest (bulldogs etc) is a lot of fun. Getting that hit while retrieving, especially at boatside, gets the heart pumping.

I like trolling sometimes just to cover alot of water. Seems like when nothing is biting and you are just shooting the shit is when they always hit! Once caught a legit 6 lb smallie trolling cranks deep for Lakers!
