Got out this morning for a couple hours in the canoe landed 3 brook trout and had to keep all 3 as they were hooked deep this was the first time on this lake with the canoe and it did not take me long to pin point the location of the brook trout.[YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbEpVytqu-4[/YOUTUBE]

Looks like you were out quite early what with the headlamp and all. In my experience, specks really prefer very early or very late as summer comes on. Sometimes in the evening they come very shallow and very close to shore. The conventional wisdom is that they go deep in summer. But, bearing in mind that food is scarce in the winter when the water is cold, they will tend to enter warm water to feed during the spring and summer---that's when they fatten up! I have seen them absolutely gorge on May flies.


My experience is with the smaller specks though. Maybe you can add your comments, Sparky. You seem to really now your specks!

I will start off by saying i arrived at the lake 8 am the device i am wearing on my head is a contour roam video recorder its like a go pro.
The specks in the lakes i fish bite all times of the day i have never found a set time that is better i always arrive around 8 am and fish most tines until 11 or 12.
The brook trout where i fish have moved off from where they were feeding in winter to deeper water around 15 to 17 feet of water.
But where i was fishing there is a big ledge that leads off to 100 feet of water the fish seem to sit right on the edge of that and dart in to feed i do a zig zag pattern with the canoe

Nice job Sparky, good to see your still chasing the specks!

You say "there's no-one else out here, never seen anyone here"....I love that...being on those lakes, catching great Brookies...I always think to myself .."seriously, where is everyone?...does nobody understand how awesome this is???...what can they possibly be doing that's better than this???"

Then I think..."glad they're not here"

Great report sparky! I agree with you and Drew about the solitude of speck fishing.Specks are my favourite fish also but maybe itís the country and lakes they live in that draws me there .Thanks for posting,tight lines.
