It was an interesting (almost) 2 days on the ice.... Day one was SUPER windy! Oh boy! I captured a video of my pop-up shelter collapsing while bringing in this walleye (coming to my YouTube channel soon)! Day two... I stepped in a 10" snow-covered hole from day one that didn't freeze back over. This shortened day two significantly! Yep, my WHOLE leg went down and it was chilly! Has this ever happened to you?!
Gotta love spoon-fed panfish! This bluegill ate a VMC Flash Champ spoon tipped with Berkley Gulp! Waxies.
After a busy but wonderful Christmas spent with family, I've finally kicked off the hard water season ️ It was so much fun getting into crappie and bluegill on ultralight gear! Happy New Year, everyone! Thank you for all of your support in 2018!
Small but feisty! I love getting some bluegill fishing in each winter! This one is my largest of the ice season so far.
Not my biggest walleye of the year, but certainly a memorable one! We had to bust our way through a skim of ice to get out on the water on this day and before all the lines were even in the water, this 10-pound walleye chomped on a Rogue Perfect 10! It was a bit chaotic but what a start to a day! My open water season is done for the season as my boat is booked in to be winterized at Urban Sport on Thursday.... The tears are real!
Another Ladies Walleye Weekend is in the books and we had SO much fun! I've posted a blog about our adventure here: https://shelovestofish.com/2018/12/10/3rd-annual-ladies-walleye-weekend/ Thank you to all the ladies who participated this year, and to our amazing guides, Captain Greg of Fishing 4 Tails, and Captain Shawn of Homewrecker Charters! Dates are already set for next year and spots are filling up! I cannot wait! Special thank you to Striker Ice and Mustang Survival for supporting our event!
I will never not freak out when a fish like this hits the net!!! I'm grateful that my fall season was a busy one with new and memorable fishing experiences, but I sure did miss my usual amount of walleye fishing on the Bay of Quinte. Thankfully I still managed to get some time in aboard my boat and landed some nice 'eyes, including this gorgeous 11-and-a-half-pounder on a Rapala Down Deep Husky Jerk! These fish truly are my favourite!
This fall season has been much different than years past! With a trip to Alabama, a busy schedule, and high winds on my days off ... I've been missing my fall walleye! BUT this Friday marks the 3rd Annual Ladies Walleye Weekend on the Bay of Quinte and I cannot wait!! I'll be missing guests from past years, but it's always wonderful to have new faces join us, (hopefully) some nice walleye landed, and creating memories that last a lifetime! A big thank you this year to Striker Ice for donating a full women's Prism suit for the angler that catches the largest fish! (I love my Prism suit and I'll definitely need it this weekend!) Cannot wait to get back out on the water with Captain Greg of Fishing 4 Tails, and also looking forward to our first trip with Captain Shawn of Homewrecker Charters! I'll be posting updates throughout the weekend so be sure to check back (or turn notifications on so you don't miss out) Fingers crossed for low winds and hungry 'eyes!
After such an incredible experience competing in the FLW Costa Championship on Lake Guntersville in Alabama last week, I sure wish I was still there! ... Especially after experiencing my first snowfall of the season today here in Ontario! ️ Tomorrow the ripping winds will be keeping me indoors to work on my blog about this adventure. If you'd like to sign up for my blog, shoot me a private message with your email address and you'll receive an email notification each time I write a new post. Looking forward sharing this adventure with you guys & gals!
