Lands End Park in Tobermory, ON

Posted on July 6th, 2009

Smallmouth!My beautiful wife Amanda and I were up at Lands End Park in Tobermory, ON again this past Canada Day holiday thru Sunday and were fishing every day. Fishing was generally good, for a variety of species. Several small perch were caught on a worm, with small split shot sinker and again a small piece of tinfoil wrapped tightly on the line for added flash. The smallie in this photo was caught on that very rig, not a bad size at all. Amanda just didn’t want to unhook the fish or hold it for the photo !

I caught a larger smallie on a Mepps Aglia # 5 a few days prior to this one. Amanda also caught another good sized smallie a few days prior on s small Gary Yamamoto Yama Tube orange colour.

I also hooked a Northern Pike on a Mapps Aglia # 5, while casting. Another Northern Pike (approx. 24 – 28″, was hooked on a Mepps Aglia # 3 bucktail,. Both times I was using 10 lbs. test on my 7′, baitcasting set up. Unfortunately, as the pike neared the dock, the line snapped at the last minute prior to landing them.

Best regards;
Ben
