Fishing Report:
I haven't been out much over the last year and a half as my wife and I are preparing our retirement house for permanent occupation. @tdawg reminded me to check the site again so I thought I'd post the highlight of a very limited fishing season. I was just out cruising the lake in #bos-mon and took some rods just in case. About 1.5 miles from my house in 6-8 feet of water I found a huge school of Smallies suspended over a large flat sand bottom. I hooked the first one with a white whopper plopper #wwp but lost it after a fierce fight. This one took a white rooster tail with a chartreuse blade #wrtcb. The reel broke when I set the hook and I had to hand line her into the boat. She put on quite a show and pulled so hard she cut my finger. But here she is, all 18 inches of her and now she is back in the lake building up for round 2. I have 96 working days left before I retire and can fish full time. You guys will see more posts starting then.

Out celebrating my Birthday this morning with my wife and favourite fishing buddy. The fish were frolicking on the surface out in the middle of the lake. I caught this 16" SMB on a #mbcb1m. Tied for best ever. He rolled on the surface within casting distance of #bos-mon just as I finished a retrieve. I cast over there and FISH-ON! Nice fight all the way to the boat. I was happy for his contribution to the festivities.

Fishing Report:
My sister had never been out on #bos-mon before so today I took her for a cruise on my local lake. It is full of baitfish today and so are the Bass. Lucky for us this guy volunteered to be the first of his kind that she has ever caught. My old reliable #bfsvs5 did the trick. #netcam

Fishing Report:
The Net Cam was deployed but failed to get a good shot. So this 15.5 inch Smallie had to pose in the usual way. Caught on the #bfsvs5 from #bos-mon. The lake is close to an airbase that hosts a remote control aircraft club on Sundays. I was treated to an airshow while fishing. Some very impressive RC flying and no crashes.

Today I set up my SJCAM to get these sort of action shots. This guy volunteered to be the first to get his photo taken as he entered the net. #bos-mon #bfsvs5 #netcam

Fishing Report:
After returning from the Salt Marsh Trail I launched #bos-mon on my local lake and soon boated this one, her slightly smaller sister and two Chain Pickerel, all on the same lure. The irony is I was after Trout using one of my favorite Trout lures, a Blue Fox Super Vibrax Silver size 5 #bfsvs5 At least now I know that it works on a variety of fish.

You know it is a going to be a good day when you catch your first and second largest of the species within a half hour. The water here is so clear that most of the time I can watch the lure all the way back from where it landed. These guys will run a long way to hit it and the effect is like being slammed in the chest. Caught on a Mann's Sexy Shad Baby 1 - #mssb1m #bos-mon

My second cruise onto my new local lake and this 16.5 inch beauty slams my White Whopper Plopper as a much appreciated welcome home to Nova Scotia. Within two hours I had three more of his buddies, the smallest being 13 inches. The others were all caught on Mann's Sexy Shad Baby 1-. #wwp #mssb1m #bos-mon

Fishing Report:
Just a little while later I was greeted by this feisty Smallmouth who pounced upon my silver lipless crankbait #slc in about 15 feet of water. #bos-mon The total catch for the day (actually about 5 1/2 hours) was 6 SMB and 2 Chain Pickerel (CP) with another 2 CP released at long distance.

Even after very heavy rain the previous day the water was very clear and he could see this lure from at least 20 feet away. Felt like an open field hit when he grabbed it. Sadly there are no Largemouth Bass in Nova Scotia but there are lots of Smallmouth, Stripers, Trout Salmon and Chain Pickerel. I hope to be posting pics of all of them this summer and fall.
