Fiddleheads and fresh trout.

Posted on Thursday, May 13, 2021

One true sign of spring is finding tasty Fiddleheads and catching opening day Trout.

Fiddleheads are common in southern Ontario and grow plentifully under cedar trees and can be found along streams and rivers in shady areas. They are ideal to pick and enjoy right after they pop thorough the ground and show their curled “frond” before they open up and unfold to become fern stems and leaves.

Once they start to get larger the stem gets “woody” and they are not as tasty to enjoy.

By late spring they turn into lush fern fields that keep the forest floor cool and very vibrant looking.

Our good friend John Grdosic and his family take advantage of this natural feast each spring season by catching Brook Trout and picking fresh Fiddleheads to make an amazing and organic spring treat!!

Raymarine Element for shallow-water Salmon.

Posted on Wednesday, May 12, 2021

Each spring Great Lakes Chinook Salmon venture into shallow water in search of spawning and post-spawn Alewife and Smelt. This is where the Raymarine Element comes in handy to mark vast schools of both forage fish species near the bottom and also cruising King Salmon.

Raymarine Element

You can clearly see in water less then 30′ the suspended schools of immature forage fish suspended just off the bottom. The two intermediate lines at the top of the baitfish and above are the two cannon balls being tracked off the downriggers. Their image is intermittent since the transducer cone (pictured to the right in the “A” scope), is much narrower near the surface then closer to the bottom.

Raymarine Element

In the Raymarine Element image above you can clearly see smaller and larger Chinook Salmon swimming just off bottom. Those are the same fish that will slash through baitfish and also smash our lures!

You can depend on Raymarine fish finders to find the baitfish and the fish!

Shoreline Walleye jigging action.

Posted on Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Our good friend Scott Clark recently returned from fishing the Detroit River, ON from shore. He reports that the action continues to be hot and anglers are limiting out in a few hrs.

Scott has been fishing jigs/minnow plastic grubs casting from shore to 25′ water.

The key is to cast slightly upstream and allow your jig to drift to the bottom without getting caught before starting to jig.

Most fish are being caught while the jig is being lifted or drops within 1′ of the bottom. Bright colors are working well and Walleye are being caught throughout the day.
