To answer fishnhunt...just flatlining. A few were caught with jighead & minnow/worm including the laker in about 15 feet, but most were caught on a 1/4oz Cleo trolled with some flavour attached. Same as you, I wonder about lakes I've tried and caught nothing, or places I trolled through on my way somewhere else. Example; On our annual May fishing trip, our group tried this one little lake for years and years in a row, we'd portage in and fish it for an hour or so, all around and never a bite. After several years we basically thought it was a dead-zone, with no trout. Then, all of a sudden one year it started puking up lakers like crazy, and we caught something like 80 fish out of that lake. Then it became our go-to lake when our 'home lake' wouldn't produce. Majorly productive for the last 4 or so years. This past May I went in there and tried all the tricks...nothing!? Who knows why? (We release 90% or more, so not like it's fished out)

Sparky...I think you should!...I'd be happy to take you on a little trip sometime...I'm not too sure I can get you into fish the size you're used to catching, but I have a number of places to try! Places quite easy to get to, some harder, and many more lakes I've not been to, but are on my bucket list. Turns out Algonquin has around 1500 lakes or so, and the highest concentration of brook trout lakes on the planet, so possibilities are endless!

Thanks for comments guys...I love leaving the motor boat behind and carrying a canoe into the unknown...just the best type of fishing for me...lakers or specks, doesn't matter. The bugs could seriously F-off though.

Nice going Drew. I hear you on the skitters in the bush. Pretty much as bad as it gets right now.

Thanks Drew for getting back to me. I think if I had to keep just one boat it would be the canoe for sure.These speck trips are what I look forward to every year. Nice to hear the specks are still biting this late in June. Tight lines

Drew.... a most detailed and enjoyable report to read. I think you have amzing adventures and wish I could still lug a canoe into back lakes as I di when younger and up north for the Sutton and Brant rivers where brook trout fishing was ridiculous.

I look forward to your next adventure and report....

I'm trying my best to never get old, but the inevitable will happen someday.

I may still be able to run a boat, but trips like this might become out of my reach, so I'm trying to take advantage as much as possible while I can.

Glad you enjoy the reports.

If you can switch the name of September to May, you will do well. Other than that, just be prepared to switch tactics till you find them. Troll, jig, deeper, shallower etc. One thing I'm doing now is I'll take BOTH minnows and worms, as brookies seem to sometimes be picky enough to prefer one over the other. I made a deal with myself years ago to never go speck fishing without worms again. Never. Finding a good lake I'd say is the most important thing.
