Summer and Early Fall

Post by JimW » Wed Nov 04, 2020 9:39 pm

Well since not too many things to do over the last 6 months and with my health issues the last couple years not getting out much, I have been trying to catch up on some much needed fishing since May.

I spent most of my time in late Spring and Summer chasing trout and salmon, switching over to walleye and pike the last two months. Plus a special Halloween "River Monster" fishing trip on October 31st. I figure a little over a month left for fishing in the boat then ice fishing shortly after that.

Here's a few catches for the last few months...

Hopefully a few more fish will visit the boat before the ice comes.

Wow I only recognize the sturgeon and pike. They are all beautiful fish and it must have been amazing to catch them.

Awesome fish! I'm so glad you got out there Jim!
I've never caught a sturgeon...seen them swimming around (while i was swimming once in Georgian Bay. Kinda cute aren't they!
You are looking amazing too! Those fish are almost as big as the girls! Did you take any for eating?
I'm so glad you are doing better.
