[nggallery id=518]I had the opportunity yesterday to fish with Aldo Nava of Niagara Fishing Adventures and a couple of friends Frank and Luke from the Wikwemikong community on Manitoulin Island, ON.. We headed out from Port Dalhousie around 7:30am and dropped out lines in in about 80′ of water and headed north to the 200′ depths. Conditions were calm and warm. The water was a little stained and there was debris scattered as far as we could see which was the result of strong winds a couple of days earlier. Within 1/2 hr. we had our first two fish on and Frank & Luke landed them to start out day-off. We fished downriggers with stackers, Dipsey Divers/Flashers/steel-line and a long copper flat-line. Both spoons and flashers/flies worked great. As far as gear goes, we were running Rapala Magnum & RSC Trolling rods along with RSC & Hydros trolling, counter reels with Sufix 832 braid.
We ended up landing about 5-Chinooks, 1-Coho and a nice rainbows. We lost about 5-other fish. Three were definitely Chinooks in the 20 lb. range.
