[nggallery id=550]This morning we had the pleasure of fishing with Aldo Nava who operates Niagara Fishing Adventures for Trout & Salmon from St. Catharine’s, ON. Our team was made up of our good friends Pat & Eva Pagano, Mike and Ann Marie Atkins, Roberto, my wife Barbara, myself, and our pup Mulligan. We headed out around 7:30 am and started setting our lines in 60′ of water. Within minutes, and only having a few lines in the water, the action started and continued right up until we pulled the lines at 11:30am.
We caught a nice mix of “shaker-salmon”, to Chinooks in the teens, Lake Trout up to the mid-teens and Rainbow trout also up to the mid-teens. We fished downriggers, Dipsey Divers and steel and copper line between 30-100′ down. our rods and reels of choice were the Rapala Magnum & RSC Trolling Rods matched with RSC counter trolling reels and Hydros trolling reels. We marked many schools of baitfish and caught our trout & salmon trolling the same area. By 10am, the sun was hot and the action steady. Our pup Mulligan started getting hot so we gave her the wet-towel treatment and when she cooled-off she had a nice snooze on Aldo’s on-board bed!
A variety of spoons worked well as well as Luhr Jensen Flashers rigged with Rapala Salmon Flies. If you love to catch Trout & Salmon in the Great Lakes, take advantage of the hot action!
