2020 Season Report
« on: October 10, 2020, 01:21:27 pm »
With the boat is in storage, it is time to sum up the summer of 2020.  Due to COVID, I didn't launch till May 26. I only had 3 guests and fished solo a lot more than usual. Fishing was pretty good in July/August but very slow in September. Boated 54 fish in 24 trips/83 hours.  Covered 460 nautical miles and burned 913 liters of fuel. I did not participate in any derbies.  Lost one 12 pound cannon ball.   Hauled out on Sept. 30. Plans for next year include a new downrigger that can handle heavier weights and a CHIRP transducer for my HDS 9 Carbon.

A friend reported pretty good fishing in the Blue Zone this week.  Just need the right kind of a day.

" Blue Zone " is a long way out for Port Dalhousie and could be a long lonely way back if the lake is not flat ; you have to pick your days & Sunday does not look good and Monday rain !

What was biggest fish?

I got a couple around 25.  Since I was not fishing any derbies I didn't weigh any.
