For those of you who have been around the Forum for a few years, you know that Jerry (Metalbuckle) and I have a tradition of going to either Lake Simcoe or GB, to fish together with some friendly rivalry.

My English heritage against his Italian heritage.

It has taken us a while this year to get our schedules together and the weather to co-operate, but it is going to happen this Friday.

As usual we shall be doing live broadcasts from the Lake, giving you current and up-to-date action.

We plan to launch out of Collingwood around 7AM and we shall be in my 16ft Legend, top up and a big green landing net stuck up on the drivers side.

Last year, Nuclear and Steelheader came in their boat as did Grampa in his boat. It was good day last year as all 3 boats were into fish.

Once again, any other Forum members are welcome to come on out and share the experience.

Jerry and I are looking forward to it. It should be a fun day.

Yes, all exciting for this trip as usual..

Watch out for the Italian, he's a cheater... LOL

I mean, he will be using a cheater. Still can't believe what happened last year, 2 fish on the same line at the same time.....

I bought some heavy line and large snaps and will make a few cheaters for the trip.

Lucky spoons are ready and shined up! Also have to tape up a new spoon, since last year a salmon stole my 'doctored" spoon.....

Good luck you two. Ralph might be unstoppable since he got the curse broken earlier.

If I can sneak out of work the Germans(maybe more so Irish supposed to be 50/50 ) might enter the contest if they are welcome.

As some of you know, I keep a fishing log of all my trips.

Date, weather conditions, what we caught and on what etc.

Well I just looked back at last year and it was Sept. 7th we went out and that day, we were marking fish everywhere and in concentrations.

That day we had 3 chinooks, a laker and a rainbow.

This year it is Sept. 6th and hopefully similar conditions will prevail.

SDC

PS
I should have added we took 4 fish on spoons and 1 on a Lyman.

Check weather forecast -- it changed for Friday: wet for the morning and winds up a bit.
14oC and wet may not be enjoyable! Just say'n.
After lunch things are supposed to clear.

Hi N007

Thanks for the input and I suspect you are looking at The Weather Network forecast, which in my experience is the least reliable.

When I look at Wind Finder, Sail Flow and Accu-Weather, they all show a similar forecast and much more favourable than TWN. When I'm planning to go out, Wind Finder is may favourite and I find them to be the most accurate, especially if I find the other 2 agree with them.

We shall see.

I agree and also do the cross-compare.
It is the "weather radar" shot that appears to back up the rain -- with a large system coming across from Michigan. Windy.com showed the same pattern. (???)
I passed this along as information available. Everyone's personal choice.
Good luck if you go.
