Variety is the name of the game here in the Eastern Basin of Lake Ontario! Over the holiday weekend we had 2 groups that experienced just that, one being a Fishing Booker group! Browns although plentiful on the fish finder, were a tough bite over the weekend. Yet we managed to put a few on the boat along with some other fish to include a beautiful smallmouth which was released. The variety in this area of the lake is not only spectacular, but unmatched by other areas. The option of being able to experience world class fishing for both warm and cold water species from the same harbor gives “flexible” anglers the option to fish for the species that will give them the best rod action and not be forced to fish for a species that simply isn’t biting at that particular time. The James Ryan party experienced exactly that on memorial day! With a slow Brown Trout bite over the past few days, we took the fact that they had children into consideration and went straight to the deep waters for Lake Trout. A quick limit gave the kids plenty of excitement and then allowed us to target the “tougher” fish…KING SALMON!...Those that claim that better fishing opportunities can be found elsewhere on the lake have little to no experience fishing the eastern basin, and to believe such tales is foolish thinking! Monday we proved that point spending the day searching for Kings, and what we found were some dandy mature hens. One of which tipped the scales at 22lbs! We don’t follow the crowd here, in fact we try to get as far from it as possible and more often then not, it pays off! The anglers best interest is always in our minds. We tailor the trip to your specific needs and wants, and give you an honest report about what is going on in the lake. This allows you to make your own (accurate) decision as to what to target on any given day!
