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!
First off thanks to JOE!!! GREAT GREAT guy...really enjoyed having him on the boat over this past weekend. A REAL GENTLEMAN. Saturday was a little slow for us, we had only 6 - 7 bites the whole day, and brought in 5 nice trout.
Sunday we made a move to fish more off and around Gallo and immediately got into the fish. We had a boat limit of trout by 9:30 AM. We switched gears and did a little bass fishing that I had been mentioneing to Joe the last couple of days. We all had a great time with the bass catching them on drop shot riggs and Rattle Traps. Even managed a Walleye.
This last weekend took out long time customer John out fishing along with his Dad and a few new friends. Weather was not what the weather man predicted for the day... Cold overcast and Windy!! We made the choppy ride over to Chaumont in the AM. Caught a bunch of Bass, which we released, then also caught a beautiful Brown Trout while fishing Walleyes. Lost a brute on a worm harness. In the afternoon we switched to another spot over by "Lonely Tree", and caught some beautiful WALLEYE (10 and 11 lbs respectively), and lost another brown which broke off. AGGH!
The secret to these two beautiful Walleye...... and this is the gods honest truth we dosed the plugs with Genesee Cream Ale before putting them out on the planner boards. The fish Walleye we caught came after dosing the bomber liberally with Genesee put the bomber (plug) in the water and after being in the water only 5 minutes before FISH ON!!. Repeat for the second Walleye... same method!
Gives a whole new meaning to the great outdoors in a glass!!....or can in our case. Had a great time... lots of laughs by all! Hopefully see everyone again. THANKS!!
