Weekend recap fishing report - April 10
Well not a bad long weekend weather wise & it appears that fishing was decent as well.
Lets start with Lake Ontario. There's been lots of dirty water along most of the shoreline extending out a ways. Finding the nice green patches will be productive.
Surface temps are 42-43° in many places.
Browns, Lakers, with some chinook & cohos being caught in 8-40 FOW. Stick baits (Live Target Smelt, Bay Rats, Bombers, Yaleye Mooneyes & Hooligans) off monofilament/planer boards working best. But spoons (Mongoose, Pickleseed, Glow Frog, Hawg Wild) are getting fish too, stretched back off shallow riggers, small divers & short lead core. We had a beauty 20.78 lb Salon weighed in this morning for the St. Catharines Game & Fish Assc. Spring Salmon derby
Good catfish happening now in places like the Grand River, Jordan & Welland River.
Perch are biting on Lake Erie. Docks are in at Port Colborne and Crystal Beach.
Looking at the weather coming this week, the waters are going to warm up more, so things are only going to get better!
