A special place...Lockport

6 posts in this topic

Well I got back from a weekend of fishing up in Lockport with some buddies, and the fishing was absolutely phenomenal for us! 100 fish, 4 guys, 2 days of fishing! I think I have experienced some of the best fishing possible in my first trip north of the border for kitties! The highlight was at the dam where my fishing partner and I landed 24 cats in 2 hrs, nothing under 31 inches!

I got a PB that was 38-1/4" and 30+lbs! Just the shear size and power of fish after fish was unreal!

Here's a few pics...

Awesome pics! I wonder if I could find that spot? wink.gif I think I may have even caught a fish or two in that exact spot!

Congrats on a great trip. Don't suppose you'll be going back ever again, huh? wink.gifgrin.gif

Centre pillar but then I have done well other times on the 2nd pillar and 1st one too, it all depends on the flow. We only fished the dam on Sat then headed north to see new sights and fished Reids on sunday.

Yes, Lockport is a special place it is the memories of fishing with GREAT guys that help make those memories, thanks guys.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
