Yeah, I know. But, as I said, we figured the lakers would be down deep on the lake we went to last year. The ones we caught this year were about 30-40 ft down.

I see why you may think that, and maybe you are right....but a lot of those little (or medium sized-where you went last year) lakes in the Park will surprise you. They are spring fed, and at much higher elevations than other areas of the province. Plus the ice is on earlier in fall, and later in the spring by several weeks. Water stays colder, longer, and fish can be shallower than you think.

Two years ago, we camped on a specky lake in late June, using just mono on spinning rods, and small spoons. After a couple days, we had only got 2 specks, but 5 nice lakers, smallest was 4 lbs.

That's a better size than what we caught last year, but smaller numbers. We caught quite a few last year, incl several by casting off our campsite. BTW--what lake did you go to??

I will await some fish porn with bated breath---or with 'baited breath' as fishermen like to say!!

I'm back from the mosquito blood-drive...I mean fishing specks.
And I have the porn. Just too worn out to do a proper report right now...will do later.
