Big Wave Action
August 20, 2005
I had the pleasure of fishing with someone all the way from California today. John was on his way to northern Quebec for a Caribou hunt and flew in for a day of fishing before the trip. The drive to the lake was a little wet as we spent most of it in rain. Winds were from the S/W at about 5 knots, but increased to 15 or 20 knots after the first hour of fishing. There were even gusts at times that felt more like 30 knots! The waves were 3 to 4 footers, making for difficult fishing even with 2 drift socks out. Most of the 20 fish caught were taken on tubes but towards the end of the day, spinnerbaits were the ticket. Plenty of others were lost with some of them being the biggest of the day! All in all a productive day with Mother Nature not winning this one!
