Just a quick weekly update.  Fishing was really tough this week.   There are lots of walleye in the system with some big fish being caught inside so there are some migratory fish up in the system, they are just not feeding with any consistency.  I did note the lowest pressure I can recall seeing at 999 mb on Tuesday Oct 28th.  I can't say as I have noticed a distinct pattern to say fishing is the best when the pressure is .... or fishing is the worst when the pressure is..., but I do know that big changes in the pressure usually puts them off.   With there being fish up in the system and the migration of the big mature walleye well on its way, fishing is bound to turn around any day now.

Keep you lines tight and lures wet!!

John - you already have the Quinte area in your blood being from here originally so the next logical step is to come back to your roots!   Grin

I've have been using Gulp or TriggerX for years now year round with great results. Bass, Perch, Crappie, Walleye, Pike and even Musky on a Drop Shot while fishing for Walleye. I've had guys pull up beside me and ask "What the hell are you using"? They were using minnows and I was crush'n em on Gulp or TrgrX.
I've found if they aren't on one they will hit the other. The other subtle tweaking I do is switch from Forked tail or Paddle tail. The key thing I've found is keep them warm for winter use. I keep all my soft baits in a Gulp insulated bait cooler with one of those hot pockets inside. I'll also change them more frequently to fresh warm ones when the water gets cold. Just put the cold ones back in whatever container you keep them in so they can warm up and recharge.

It was back on home waters for me today as I spent 5 hours chasing sobby simcoe smallies. I'm definitely spoiled by Lake Ontario fish. They rarely let you down. If you drop something in front of their face they bite it. On simcoe these days they look at it, put their nose up and swim away. It might be time to move down there. LOL

We have had great success using Gulp in the fall for walleye. My Dad swears by using it over real minnnows.

We've tested using both and although typically I find the real minnows may catch more fish; very marginal differnce though, the Gulps always catch the bigger fish for some reason. This is using the same jig heads, line, setup etc.

However, when I can get real minnows, even though our tests show they work very well, I prefer them over Gulp. It's a confidence thing. :-)

I don't have any luck in the winter with them thru the ice and am very interested if others have and use them?

I wish i had minnows or worms that day. Someone told me that gulp type baits aren't as effective in cold weather? More of a summer time, warm water approach?

Let me correct the "just not near the Trent system" I meant at the mouth of the river. I've caught them out on the flat and all along the opposite shoreline.
