Hello all, started my trip to Canada last friday 10-09.....got to Pefferlaw around 6 and got minnows first thing then off to Caseys to purchase our licence which was a 8 day licence for $52.....launched around 9 after we settled in at camp. Headed for Thorah island....30-32 f.o.w..........Friday the 6 of us managed around 20- 25 fish each before the rain hit real hard and the wind picked up.......made it out Sat with the best day of the trip we managed a 6 man limit ( 300 perch ) in 4 hrs without moving once, "what a day"!!!!! all perch between 8 - 14 1/4 inches..... Sun. was a loss, it was very windy all day so we hit up a nearby Casino and lost some money


Monday was our last day at Simcoe and fishing was slow after the rain and wind.......i managed around 30 but with alot of smaller ones and the second biggest perch of the trip 13 1/2 inch was caught. I would say altogether we caught around 700 perch in a 12 hr period on the lake, 3 nice whitefish (released) and 2 or 3 gobies all on minnows
later in the afternoon we ran into some bad luck and blew a wheel bearing on the trailor and the nut that holds it in place about a couple hundred yards short of getting on the highway......then we remember it Canadas Thanksgiving so nothing was open......finally got a tow to a parts store and then ended up stayin at a hotel for the night, got our bearings in the morning and had to search a couple other places for the nut and finally found one around 11 am and made it back tues. night.

besides the bad luck with the trailor it was one of the greatest times fishing in my life so far, "Simcoe is Amazing"

a few pics to follow, enjoy

Simcoe is an awesome lake. You don't hear about it too much, but they have HUGE smallmouth in there.

Glad you got into the perch.

lol Tek, im ready to bust out the shanny any time........not sure about the beach, i havent fished it in about 2 weeks.....thinking about throwing a spoon or ping a-t tomorrow morning for a couple hrs, prolly my only chance to get out this weekend..... im thinking if i catch anything it will be a walleye or Lake Trout, but who knows i might catch the last salmon in Huron

Good luck if You go, and give us a report back. It wouldn't be the last Salmon in Huron. I saw some swimming in Presque Isle harbor the other day.
