I took Mulligan, my pup down to the Niagara Whirlpool again yesterday around 2pm and was surprised to see so many anglers fishing during the week. I am sure when the browns are in, the word get’s out fast. The current was flowing in a clockwise position which was opposite from Fri., when it flowed in a counter-clockwise position (normal change for the Whirlpool). The water was even more stained than on Fri., with visibility around 8″. Most anglers were either bottom bouncing or drift-fishing spawn-sacks. The bottom-bouncers were having the best results. I only fished for about an hour casting Juhr Jensen Kwikfish. I met one of my fans there RT, who was hoping to get a picture taken with me. I told him that we should both fish and as soon as one of us hooks a brown we would take a picture. Well RT was casting a glow-in the dark 3/8 oz. spoon and hooked the first brown. No one was close to us to take a picture, so he held his trophy brown and I stretched out my arm and we had the image! RT was very excited and I will quote him:

“Hi Italo, this is Rt. You remember me? It was a great day. It must be a one of my luckiest day in my whole fishing life. You know what? I thought I was in fishing show with you on that time. It was really good. I say thank to you. Also, I attached picture and hope you see you again. You have a good day. RT”
Rt runs a sandwich shop in one of the Hamilton, ON government building and it was a pleasure to meet him. Hopefully I’ll see him on the river again.
