There has been lots going on around here just not a lot of fishing but last Friday afternoon I drove to Trenton to be nice and close for Saturday’s day on the lake with Pete Garnier fishing the #BigBassChamps on the Bay of Quinte. After going out for supper with Carp and Gordo, I dropped into Pete’s to load my gear and talk fishing with everybody else that was dropping in or staying at his house. We met at Timmies in #Belleville Saturday about 05:30 to grab something and headed to the George Street Ramp to launch the boat, we were on the water about 6am all checked in and it was off to his 1st spot to wait for 7am to make our 1st cast. Pete had 3 Largies in the boat in about 20 minutes with one being about 3.6 lbs and then things slowed down a bit as we targeted weed clumps and a bit of shoreline structure before we both started catching fish again, there were some nice pike landed and a good number of Largies in the 3 to 3.6 lb area with some smaller ones mixed in too. We started past Deseronto and fished a few spots then headed back towards Trenton and a little east before working a few more spots on the way back to Belleville before the last weigh-in hour, I ended up with a Largie about 3.75lbs and was going to weigh it in but decided not to after seeing all the boats around the ramp and we decided to just release the fish and I was dropped off to get the trailer to load the boat. This was a #GreatDay and we landed between 30 and 40 fish with the biggest 5 weighing somewhere between 17.5 lbs and 18 lbs. Thanx for the day on the Bay. My fish were caught on #ArdentReels DB and Edge Rods with Ardent Apex Grand, Elite, Flipping, C-Force Baitcasting reels and the #BlackFlyLures spinnerbaits #WOOTungsten Texas rigged #XZoneLures Punisher Punch Craw and Muscle Back Craw, with a little #LiquidMayhem as needed, protected by #TheRodGloves while flying around the lake.This all came about after Pete Donated a day on the Bay of Quinte for Ben's Fund Raiser. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10158598410575355&set=gm.1416785278346278&type=3&theater&ifg=1

We are thrilled to see how things are looking when it comes to size of fish, I often remember in the last couple of years many anglers reminiscing of the “good old days” when they used to pull out fish that were at least 30 lbs. I always thought it was a tall tale, the last few years saw winners who’s fish weighed between 18 – 16 lbs (last years’ derby winner was 17.07lbs) , this is until I was introduced to what Lake Huron really has to offer with our current leader a 29.04 lbs Lake Trout. Maybe those stories were true after all! We have seen several fish hitting the 20 lbs mark, including a Brown Trout that weighed in at 21.90, the largest I have ever seen was 7 lbs! They are in there and they are hungry! The salmon have also made a return, we in the last couple of years usually saw our first ones usually around day 5, we have seen many large ones already, the current leader being 14.2 lbs. I look forward to the rest of the derby and see what other monsters get pulled out!
