Sabin Pond / Forest Lake / Mirror Lake Rainbows

Post by digitroll (ron) »

Nice change of pace while on a family vacation on Sabin Pond. A stay vacation instead of going to Michigan. Rainbows continue to be the theme!

I was out scouting early while the kids were sleeping in. 13 minutes over dirt roads from the home base.

Rainbows all released 5 for 7. 2 sets of doubles. 2 minute video:

0:16 in, the boat is anchored but there is no "beach line." Cold wet walk? Looks like a good setting, and you ran a great pattern to figure it out.

Water was 71F Toasty despite the air being 42F at the launch. I just pulled the boat in spun it around pushed it out with a big push and climbed up into the transom. Wet up to knees!

It's a wrap with the bad weather today and big winds tonight and tomorrow. Finished with 7 rainbows landed and 10 bites for 15 hours of trolling. Not setting the world on fire but it's a family vacation and trolling solo the last 4 mornings 3-4 hrs each was a bonus! Fished 3 lakes all close by. Last few days I used my ultra light 6 ft spin casting rods on the riggers with 6 lb test. Great experience! Coming back next year.

8 more days to Ontario! Put on the flack jacket! Some heavy lifting forecast! Man the battle stations!
