Headed out Saturday with a buddy to check a new spot. Never been before but I've heard good things...

So...took a 2-1/2 hrs, and some paddling around, but finally, 18" speck slammed my spoon...buried all three hooks on the treble

Managed the one Brookie, 3 lakers, and 5 or 6 smallies between the two of us.

Not the most amazing day ever, but pleasantly surprised trying a new spot!

Oh yeah they do! That one was a battle man. I downsized from my stiffer trolling rod I use in the boat for pulling wire line to one a lot more limber for using in the canoe. Warped it over quite well and pounded the entire 250 feet, drag slipping. Definitely took a few minutes to get it topside. You can tell the battle by the blood. Most exciting fish all year.

Awesome! makes me pine for the park. My trip is Sept Long weekend about 25 min from my place, I guess that is next weekend.... near the park for back-country Bass and Splake for 4 days, paddle portage, paddle, portage, camp.... repeat x4..... oh and catch some fish of course!

Algonquin trout can definitely be spunky... time to book for next year! Good "work"!

Yeah...fish off shore at the little pull-off between the Smoke Lake launch and the airplane hanger right at Hwy 60. Every time I drive by there, I see someone fishing. Must be a good spot.

In all seriousness, I'd need to know when you are going and what you'd like to catch to offer specific advice. In general, put in some work, and you can be rewarded. Get a stocking list and start there. Once you're confident and successful in that setting, then expand your range. There's no limit to how much effort you can put into the park. Also, remember to take a net! - I'm still working on that one!
