Last night after work I hit the water for an hour and a half and was really happy with the outcome! The fishing has been a little tough for me lately, and sometimes you need a big fish (or two) to brighten your day. Luckily, I caught a couple, and also a crappie! I haven’t caught many of them so it was a nice surprise. I took some photos and videos, so here we go (in order of being caught):
First smallie of the night
Sydenham Lake is LOADED with panfish, and crazy rock bass!
A beautiful crappie!
A big fat smallie – YA!!!
Alrighty, so here is the video for the crappie:
And the big smallie, save the best for last! I was a little excited for this one:
Although the days are now getting shorter, the heat is still cranked here in Ontario. I am really looking forward to the long weekend! I will be fishing on Saturday, hitting up Canada’s Wonderland on Sunday, and for the holiday Monday I will be participating in a really cool event I want to tell you about.
Facebook has been an amazing tool for me to meet so many anglers from all over the world. There is a very strong presence in the angling community, and the support there is awesome as well. It’s great to see where people are fishing, what they are using, and what they are catching. I have been talking to some locals lately and one of the guys had an idea of a fishing get-together. I renamed Facebook, Fishbook, and we are doing our first gathering on Monday in Port Hope, Ontario! Here is a link for the event:
Everyone and anyone is invited! We are targeting salmon and trout, both of which I have never caught! So it’ll be great to meet some new anglers and hopefully make some memories, and learn a thing or two about fly fishing!
