Crow Lake – Nestor Falls Ontario
Talk about fish catching travel – 26 hours to get here towing a boat. A long ass ways. It is now 11:30 at night. We finally got here at 2:30, unloaded the stuff and were fishing before 4. It was an interesting start.
We managed to catch 6 smallmouth on jerk bait and one on a buzzbait. When we went to re-fish the bank I decided to throw a spinnerbait. So I buzzed a chartreuse, gold bladed willow leaf, and a 15lb muskie just smoked it. After a good tussle we got him to the boat, in the net, and on the way up he hopped out. Oh well.
Later my brother Jeff had another follow a jerk bait all the way to the boat, but did not eat. As they are are not in season, and in Ontario you can not specifically fish for them, we will continue to fish for smallmouth and northern pike. But if that is the number of muskie we had a shot at without fishing for them, it looks like a great week is ahead of us. And in addition, we were fishing blind, just using the map. So it is all good. And best of all, it is not dark until 10:00, so I guess we will fish ourselves to death.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have some pictures for you. There are tons of deer, we saw an eagle, and the water is clear enough to see a dime in 10 foot. Plus my friend Clyde from Arkansas will be here tomorrow, and he has been fishing this place for years. Game on.
We will also be fishing Lake of the Woods, one of the greatest lakes in the world. I have fished some big places, but Lake of the Woods has 65,000 MILES of shoreline. Are you kidding me?
So stop in every day, no matter how tired I will at least post something. Thanks for reading my stuff, and I can tell you, this ain’t POC.
Good Luck and Tight Lines.
