Bruce Power Sampling Salmon & Trout at Baie Du Dore Oct 15-013

When we arrived at the Ramp there were no other Trailers in the parking lot & we were asked if we would wait around long enough to have Measurements, Weight & Scale Samples from our fish taken, my reply was as long as I can get a bit of video sure lol. We started fishing in 70' of water out front of Douglas Point trolling out to 120' in front of Bruce B then back to 85' at the north point of Inverhuron Bay & then across the front of Bruce B in 75' TO 90' of water, 1 Laker, 2 Rainbows, 2 Coho & 3 Chinook in an afternoon of fishing. Likely the last time out there this year but maybe not. Tight Lines Richard
