Today could have possibly been my last day of trolling for walleye on open water. It was pretty chilly at -4, and on my way to Picton I saw a few ponds iced over, flurries were falling and I could see my breath. Although it was quite cold, many boats were still on the water, the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day on the Bay of Quinte regardless.

Planer boards, more fun to watch than television!
Ready to go!

Fish on board!
What a beautiful walleye!
As soon as a fish is on, I forget about everything else.

Although we only boated 2 fish today, I had a GREAT time! I feel as though the more time I spend on the water, the more time I want to spend on the water. It’s addictive, and I am sure most of you reading this blog will agree, ’cause let’s face it – we’re all obsessed!
Although the rivers and lakes will soon be freezing up, it will not put a stop to my season! Ice fishing is (hopefully) just around the corner.
Thanks for reading!
Nice Walleye. Dinner, or C&R?
Catch & Release, the preferred method for me 🙂
Looking forward to some ice fishing posts from up your way.
Love your excitement and great outlook on winter. Have a great time on the ice!
Nice walleye! Hope to see you pull some out of the ice soon. I've already seen some portable shacks on our lakes. I'm surprised you haven't already been on the ice.
Nice Walleye… but I'd take a smaller one for dinner!
