She Loves to Fish: Ladies Walleye Weekend 2017

– I’ve been fortunate to spend time targeting the magnificent walleye on the Bay of Quinte over the years with friends in their boats, and in my own boat. These large migratory walleye start to make their way into the Bay of Quinte from Lake Ontario during late summer. This migration creates a unique opportunity to catch huge Lake-grown walleye for those willing to bare the elements as the fish reach the Bay in the fall. This is one of my favourite fishing experiences and I wanted more women to get out there have an opportunity at catching these world class fish. Our Guides – Of course this event wouldn’t have been possible at all without a couple of fantastic charter captains who were on board to get this group of ladies out on the water. The Fishing – What can I say about the fishing? Embarking on this adventure, all the ladies knew that fishing is fishing. Thankfully all participants had an opportunity not only to catch walleye (some for the first time ever) but many were trophy-class fish too! there’s a lot of screaming and cheering in this video, mostly from me!).

On November 23, a group of 8 female anglers traveled from various parts of Ontario (and one all the way from Texas) to partake in a 3-day fishing adventure on the Bay of Quinte. I rented a house on AirBNB and partnered up with 2 of the best local walleye fishing guides to get these all these gals out on the water. New friendships were formed, we laughed until our tummies ached, and some HUGE walleye were caught! It was a weekend to remember!

How did this all come about? – I’ve been fortunate to spend time targeting the magnificent walleye on the Bay of Quinte over the years with friends in their boats, and in my own boat. These large migratory walleye start to make their way into the Bay of Quinte from Lake Ontario during late summer. They remain in the Bay roaming and feeding until spring when they spawn and head back out to Lake Ontario. This migration creates a unique opportunity to catch huge Lake-grown walleye for those willing to bare the elements as the fish reach the Bay in the fall. This is one of my favourite fishing experiences and I wanted more women to get out there have an opportunity at catching these world class fish.
