Lake Ontario Salmon
It was my first time on Lake Ontario. I know, hard to believe! I hooked up with my fishing buddy Brian Beck at his place of employment then headed to the launch by the Scarborough Bluffs. The weather man was calling for short periods of rain, we got a few sprinkles but nothing that would take us off of the water. We started out in approximately 80 feet of water and had a great view of the Toronto sky line.
We used Rapala Magnum Dipsy Rods, Rapala rsc line counter reels, Magnum #3 dispy divers, green spin doctors, Bug Eye Flies in green and blue tinsel which both colours produced fish. Main line was Fireline Braid in 30 lb test and 30 lb fluorocarbon from the dipsy to the spin doctor.
Brian was confident that we would get some fish, he was right! I landed my very first Chinook Salmon from Lake Ontario.
The fish weighed approximately 25 pounds and was released after a few quick pictures. The weather held off and we had a great time, because any day is a great day for fishing!
