Commentary

Last Week

What…a…week! Such good times on the water with friends and clients. Yes clients – NY included charter fishing as part of Phase 1 reopening so we’re back in business!

This past week was awesome. Other than the couple of windy/rainy days early on – we had consistently incredible weather and water since Tuesday. We took full advantage of the sunny skies and wave”less” water, showing some of our clients our new obsession – spring salmon fishing on the Lake Ontario bar. The pics will speak volumes.

As much fun as it is to catch spring king salmon, I still feel like I’m cheating on the smalljaws from time to time so I’ve been making it a point to say hi to a least a few per outing for good measure. Some big ones are finally starting to show up.

The forecast for this upcoming week is looking excellent. I’ll be on the water daily – splitting time between Eastern Lake Erie, the Upper Niagara River, and the Lake Ontario bar.
