CONGRATULATIONS TO SANDY LaPLANTE and JEFF RADELY!
WINNERS in the Henderson Harbor Big Fish Shoot Out to Support Breast Cancer Research.
Fishing this weekend remained very strong…..Trout fishing has remained very solid as well as the SALMON fishing. Over the last weekend we had the Walt Cuniff Party, and the LaPlante / Radely Parties. Fishing for both groups was very good with above average brown trout and king salmon being taken off wire dipsey divers. Saturday and Sunday was the Big Shoot out in support of Breast Cancer research. We had multiple winners on the boat that day with 2nd and 3rd place trout and a 2nd place Salmon at the end of the day Saturday. Both the Salmon and the Trout held out and got both Sandy LaPlante and Jeff Radely checks at the end of the day!
Congrats to both Sandy and Jeff! AWESOME Job. BTW this is the second time this year EXCURSION CHARTERS has gotten their clients in the winner’s circle !
Fishing is solid everywhere in out of the Henderson Harbor area. Bass fishing remains good out around both Gallo and Stoney Islands. Bass are taking everything from soft plastics to live bait between 10-20 feet of water.
Offshore fishing still is good…SALMON started to show up about a week ago off Calf Island and Stoney Point lighthouse. Fish are in 135-155 feet of water. Look for the marks on your sonar and set up for either trout or the salmon.
Some pictures from some recent trips….
Fishing has remained good though the week with people catching bass, walleye, and trout. The bass and walleye are being caught together around both Stony and Gall Islands in 10 to 15 feet of water. The trout fishing has been best off the end of Calf Island.
A recent trip yielded a quick limit of trout, then we went bass and walleye fishing.
We have been on the water continually this past month with all the great fishing and versatility that Henderson Harbor has become so famous for.
With the longer and colder winter we had the trout fishing has remained good “on top” of the deeper water areas. We have been fishing the top 1- 20 feet of water over 70 – 100 feet (depth) using both planner boards and riggers. We have been getting a mixed bag of both Lakers, browns, and occasional steelhead. Has some great outings with friends from PA and New Hampshire. Thank you to Lots a Limits lodger for the referrals.
Have been in both the Chaumont and Black River Bay areas. Stick baits in both areas behind in-line planner boards have been producing the best. We have had some real impressive catches of truly trophy WALLEYE.
We still have dates available in June so please give us a call!
All efforts this weekend were for the Walleye that makes Henderson the port to fish out of for Trophy Class Walleye….This last weekend I took some great customers out both Saturday and Sunday. We were able to get a few to the boat. Thanks to Joe and his grandson Conner!
Extreme winter has made the water temperatures for this time of the year extremely cold. The brown trout fishing has remained good! Adam shows off a brown going 14 lbs.
And of course do not forget the ladies…..Jolie with a Walleye well over 10 lbs.
Give us a call. With all this cold water I think the shallow water browns and Walleyes could be with us for a few more months!
