Otisco Lake, Sunday 21 September 2014


As fall quickly approaches we fished Otisco Lake, which is a team tournament.  We run two of these every year.  We pair boater and co-angler together and use this an event to help anglers learn from each other.

Although the morning looked inviting with the wind blowing down the lenght of the lake at 10 – 12 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph, fishing was tough as a cold front came barreling down on the anglers.
