Birthday Fish
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.

My sister's first smallie
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

Post Net Cam
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.

Introducing the Canuck Net Cam
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

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.

Musical Mackerel
Out on the Salt Marsh Trail to celebrate the completion of 24,000 kms of Trans-Canada walking trails. They had a bagpiper, cake and local politicians speaking about it. I brought along my Mackerel rig for when the speeches got boring. (Which was right after they started). Even though the tide was falling, this frisky Mackerel hit the lure and put up a good fight to wash off the Skunk. Lucky for him he wasn't big enough to feed everyone so I threw him back. I could have got a better photo but for the fact that I don't have a third arm and I was balancing on rocks beside a roaring ebb tide current.

JimmyGood job avoiding the skunk Jed! Is the tide change up in Dartmouth near as dramatic as the Bay of Fundy?
LikeReply 1 year
CanuckThe Tide change here is around 4 feet. It was ripping out through a narrow cut under a bridge that forms part of the trail. Just to the left of the picture was a 9 or 10 knot current.

Canada Day - Best
This one waited until the rain was pouring down before pouncing on my Mann's Baby 1- Brown Crawdad. Great fight from a long way out. 16 inches #bos-mon #mbcb1m

Canada Day Fishing
Out at the crack of dawn for some C-Day celebrations. This 15 3/4 " beauty decided to join me on the boat. Berkley Red Crawdad Crankbait. #bos-mon #berkleyredcrawdad12

Next largest personal best
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

Personal best Smallmouth Bsss
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

CanuckI haven't found them on sale up here so right now I seem to be the only one using them. The few other fishers I have talked to weren't aware of them. Good for me!

The real target of the day
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.

First Resdient Licence Nova Scotia Catch in 31 years!
Jimmy, I promised you a fishing story and pic when I got back home. With all of the moving associated responsibilities it took just over a week to obtain a kitchen pass and get out but it quickly paid off. This lake is just a 2 minute drive from my house and is heavily fished by our standards ( I counted four other boats out there over the morning ). This Chain Pickerel (we call them "Axe handles") greeted my return with enthusiasm. #bos-mon. #berkleyredcrawdad12

CanuckThey get much bigger than 10 lbs and they are ferocious fighters but a total pain to unhook and release. Even small ones can shred your fingers. I have met only two people who have said they like eating them. I don't.
