Fall Edition

    Well Folks it's that time again, yeah you know winterize the boat, put the rods away, clean out the tackle boxes and start planning for ice fishing-NOT!  Lets be clear here, the fall is the best time of the year to fish Quinte.  Most would think I'm referring to walleye and that's true to some extent but with early to mid fall don't overlook the tremendous bass fishery here.  Now's the time those rocky shoals and points come alive with smallmouth that are too easy to catch.
   Of course there are some among you who are only thinking of walleye,  not just average walleye, they are dreaming of that elusive world record.  There is a good chance Quinte could cough it up this fall considering the fact that there are still fish from the famous class of 78' swimming out there.  
Many of us will  enjoy just being out on the water and bringing home a few for the dinner table.  Whatever your goal is  play safe, enjoy yourself and don't forget the camera!  Many of the bigger fish are not great for consumption but with the click of a camera will make a memory for a lifetime.

Many thanks to all of you for sending in pictures.  I finally got some time to put them all together and now it's up.  Take a moment to have a look and tell me what you think.  The style and format can be changed but I think I won't have to as the download time is pretty fast and you just have to click on the image for full screen view.  Don't stop sending in you pictures!

Quinte Fishing Series Oct.2/3 Combo Results

    The final tournament of the Quinte Fishing Series, a bass and walleye combo, got underway at 7:00am from the George St. ramps in Belleville.  Twenty teams left the docks under calm waters with some cloud , hoping to catch their limit of 4 bass and 2 walleye for the day.
    At the 4:00pm check-in time it was clear after a number of teams had weighed in that the walleye fishing was tough as only half the field caught walleye!  Having caught their limit of 2 bass and 4 walleye the team of Steve Yarrow and Dave Langman took the day one lead with a weight of 24.32lbs.  Weighing in 20.81lbs and in second place were the Lawernce brothers, Tom and Steve, and rounding out the top three were Chris Sherman and Dave Henderson with a full limit and weight of 20.45lbs.
    Day 2 saw another gorgeous day with the sun coming out and temperature warming as the day progressed.  Like day one, walleye were somewhat scarce, but by again weighing a full limit the team of Chris Sherman and Dave Henderson, moved from 3rd to first to win the combo title.  Their day 2 weight of 22.17lbs gave them a great weight of 42.62lbs! 
    The $250.00 "Big Fish Award" for bass came from a 4.70lb bass from day1 and went to the first place finishers of Chris Sherman and Dave Henderson.  The big walleye of the tournament came in on day 2 as Chris and Mary Ann Frazee weighed in a nice fish of 9.40lbs to claim their $250.00 prize and trophy.
    The Quinte Fishing Series "Angler of the Year" race went down to the last day as two teams, Sherman/Henderson and the Lawernce fought it out with just a few points separating them.  In the end it with their 1st place finish Sherman/Henderson put the wraps on the title and took home a great prize package of a new Princecraft 15 Yukon Boat, 15 H.P. Mercury outboard and a galvanized trailer.
    The following cash and draw prizes were awarded to our top finishers and anglers of the tournament.

1st-$1,800.00 Chris Sherman/Dave Henderson
2nd-$1,100.00 Steve Yarrow/Dave Langman
3rd-$600.00 Jeff Toppings/Larry Pringle
