On Thanksgiving morning I decided to go Smallmouth fish with my friend Ivan Chan on Fraser Lake. We got there at 06:30 am and we were on the water for 06:45 am. It was a challenge to bring our Ocean Kayaks to the water since the trail was pretty rough and it was pretty dark outside and we couldn't see the obstacles. Next time I am definitely bringing my head lamp! But we managed to make it to the water safely. I was pretty iffy about fishing today since the Farmer’s Almanac predicted poor for fishing. The weather was clear and cold at 1 degree Celsius. It was dark on the water till about 07:15 am and as soon as the sun started to come out we both started to catch some Smallmouth Bass. I cough roughly 16 of them varying in size from 8” to 15”. My friend caught about 20 of them vary in size from 9” to 17”. The wind started to pick up around 10:30 am. Today I went almost all the way down to the North end of the Lake which is quite a distance to paddle. They loved top water lures today and wacky sticks. We fished till noon then we decided to pack it up. Overall it was excellent day on the water!
Happy Fishing and Tight Lines!
