Anyone else have a trip planned this year just to go fishing? Let's here your trip or day on the water.



I'm joining a group of guys in June , (not related to me and mainly they're brothers, bother-in-laws, sons and their father) , that go up the Ramsey Lake area in Ontario every year to walleye and pike fish for six days. The slot restrictions on the walleyes has workout pretty good because they keep getting larger each year. Spoiled is the word that comes to mind because you have to be one bad son of gun fisherman to get skunked there. The pike range from hammer handles to around 4 lbs. Nothing trophy size but good eating. :)-

I have been to Canada a number of times. All times but two were in northern Ontario one spot over a hundred miles north of Sudbury another in extreme north western Ontario (a fly in trip). One a couyple of years ago not far from 1000 island bridge (40 or 50 miles) and one to northern Quebec. The one to Northern Quebec was 87 miles off the nearest paved road. That unpaved road was bad enough it was 15 to 20 mph the whole way. I believe the most exciting was the fly in trip. Everyone needs to fly with a bush pilot at least once in their life. What a thrill. Oh by the way the walleye fishing was outstanding on that trip. We caught hundreds of them.

PA I did a fly in too in the N.W. part of Ontario. Drove up out Michigan through the Saulte and headed N.W. around the Superior and then north until the road stopped in this little nothing of a town. Next morning we loaded our gear and flew with Bushy in his Otter due north over an hour up around the James bay region where all the rivers and lakes drain into. No one but us on this huge lake and rivers for the week. Wolf and bear tracks around our site every day while we are out on the lake fishing. Scat left by both 10 steps from the boat dock. No guns or bows just fillet knives in camp. This was twelve years ago now and I remember it like it was last spring. Great fishing trip.

:D Don't mean to rattle any cages, but living here does have a few advantages. The 30+ pound northerns, double digit walleye, 10+ pound rainbow and 50+ pound lakers are great. :P

Red Green you could not take it fishing in Ohio. The average day here is a skunk or no fish at all just a lot quality time on the water. Not enough water to fish and too many fisherman and recreational types on it too. That why we go to Canada for the fishing, some much water and no fisherman all day long. And the fishing is hard to beat like you say. :eek:
