Nice performance.
How much did you walk from Shanty (shore)?
What depth did you drill the holes?
Tight lines.

80 fow to 120+ fow.  I just like to walk away from everyone else... doesn't seem to matter fish-wise.  But I'm a beginner.

You can access deep water in a few hundred meters of walking.

I walked out from Shanty Bay (Line 2).  Have you ever fished the are you mentioned?  I'd be willing to try if somebody can show me around.

Walked out from Oro Line 2 today in some awesome weather.  Wind was nonexistant and the air was nice and warm.  Ice was firm, not too much slush on top.  There were maybe a few inches of slush in some places where snow had accumulated. 

I walked out quite a bit past the crowds and drilled 2 holes.  I was looking for whitefish, but got into some lakers instead.  The first hit I got came off after a second, so I guess he just grabbed the tail of my tube.  The second fish barely fought at all... had he not chased me up 20 feet I'd have thought he was a whitefish LOL. 

Turns out he was my new PB laker at 9.5 lbs.. and a natural fish too (I think!)



Fished this spot a bit and marked nothing more.  I walked around a lot, staying deep over 120 FOW.  Every new hole I popped I'd mark maybe 1 fish or nothing at all.  I returned to my starting point since I figured I couldn't do any better walking around getting "exercise" LOL. 

This time around, it took maybe two hours to get 3 more lakers.  One of them I accidentally snagged on the bad boys I was fishing for whitefish!  My line felt funny all of a sudden, so I set the hook into a fish.  When it got to the hole I noticed it was hooked between the pectoral fins... wild!  Released immediately.

This next one rose up to a deadsticked swimbait which I reeled away when he approached.



This next 8.5 lb stocker rose up to a deadsticked tube which I reeled away when he approached. 



Someone said the weather was supposed to be bad today?  Silly weatherman :P  Kidding aside, the rain cleared in time for sunset. 



Despite investing some time in yo-yo-ing my laker baits, all of the interest I attracted was from dead sticking.  Hey, can't say that this technique doesn't work!  3 for 5 today!  Whoo!  That's better than my Simcoe average of zero :P

Back at it tomorrow!
