It seems like just yesterday when I stored the boat in preparation for a long, hard winter. Where did it go? With any luck, I will be back on the water soon enough to take advantage of the early Walleye bite. Insane days with high numbers of both walleye & sauger are short lived as the season closes abruptly by March end. Mother Nature has the upper hand here as she decides whether or not I get out in the boat. Although this winter hasn’t been the best for anyone wanting to ice fish, there are still alternatives. Open water trout & steelhead are abundant on both sides of the border and certain rivers are producing daily. Lake Ontario tributaries are easy to access for those wanting to do a little leg work and can be quite rewarding as well. This bizarre winter has kept me busy, but not in the way I had intended. Instead of mixing up the hard & soft water fishing, I have been focusing on the business at hand. Preparation of the 2012 season has had me concentrating on revamping my website. It has been long overdue! There will be several changes made to both the locations as well as the pics sections. With a variety of fish species now being targeted, it was time to advertise them all. Although bass will always be the favorite, multi species fishing has allowed me to extend the year even longer. From the novice to the experienced, there’s something for everyone to enjoy! Bookings have begun for walleye in March, trout & salmon in April/May as well as pike & walleye opening in May. When bass season opens mid June, I will be targeting all species and fishing right into December once again. Be sure to check back soon at http://www.advancedbassin.com for updates and any booking days you may require. It won’t be long before we’ll be wetting lines and hitting the open water for another great season. Enjoy a few pics from this winters fishing. Tight Lines Everyone!!
