We fished the Great Lake on the way home from St.Clair today, got there around 10.30 am and fished until 2.30pm.
Caught 6 browns all released, caught fish out in the middle on beetle patterns and emergers, certainly were some good wind lanes out there.
We fished Great Lake on the weekend with Bailey and Jack Seabourne. We managed to catch 16 trout, three being rainbows, caught fish on dry fly and a few on softies. Some nice fish were taken out the middle of the lake on my orange dry. “Shark fishing” out here is fantastic!, all visual, polaroiding fish cruising up wind lanes and taking the dry,...can't beat it.
This afternoon Bailey, Jack Seabourne and myself went looking for a suitable camp site on the western side of the Great Lake so that we can spend a few days fishing there over Xmas, wasn’t a fishing trip, we threw the rods in, had to have a few casts while we were there.
Alan Donohue, Bailey, Jack Seabourne and myself fished at the Great Lake on Saturday afternoon in very bright sunny conditions and landed a few nice browns, Dale Howard wanted us to try a new softie for him which is a 2.5 inch black & gold paddle tail called “Devils tongue”, and it worked well in the Great Lake and in Augusta, catching several trout.
After working afternoon shift Friday night- got an early knock off and headed straight to the Great Lake to stay, ready for an early start to fish Arthurs Lake on Saturday morning.
