In Topic: First trip in Algonquin, any good beginner routes?

It's not to hard to get into some decent fishing in Algonquin when you do a few portages and get away from the crowds, it's basically either Trout or SM bass.

 

Do your research about techniques and lures but most important is understanding where the fish will be at the time of year your going in that's half the battle right there.

 

Try to find out the depths of lakes your thinking about which will help you determine if it 's suitable for the fish your targeting and what area's to try first.

 

Spring/summer/fall require changes to your presentation to be successful and don't be afraid to go big because there are some true monsters roaming those waters.


In Topic: Can anyone recommend a 10lb and 30lb fishing line?

You don't need to fish with cable you will catch way more with 8lb Berkeley clear mono and your set. Don't go green or florescent just plain old clear.

 

You need a decent rod and reel and set the drag right but putting on Braid that's four times stronger than the fish your going for is just rookie and you know the rest of us are laughing and thinking do you have that shiny Shimano jacket also?

 

I do change my line a lot but I just think it goes with getting ready to head out on a trip and mono does not last long so change it often. 

 

I've fought salmon musky you name it on 8lb mono. It's called drag boys.

 

Last trip one person used 12lb the other used 8lb and the score was  1:12 so go figure, same lures same everything except the line size.


In Topic: Rigging Up Your Canoe For Fishing

06 August 2019 - 03:12 PM

I've never used those pontoon things but I can see how they could help but I really only use the canoe when it's portage trip and just more to carry. 

 

I personally always liked a canoe with the tri keel lines because I found them to be very stable compared to everything else not that I have ever really had a problem.

 

And don't forget if you run a trolling motor like I do so I don't have to paddle you are required to have your boaters card on you.
