It is more to the north, not in the release zone.First off Ryan I'm not sure where campsite 1 is. If in the southern part its Catch and release.
You need a Keji licence - no need of a NS licence. You can have daily licence or a seasons
ticket - You are right about the perch - you might get a brook trout also.
The water is warm and so is the days so best bet is early morning.
I just have all of this new gear and I really don't know what I should be using and how to set it up. Should I be using the floater or sinkers? should I be using a swivel or not? I can't really go out to buy anything else, all that I have is in the pictures. If someone could just say something like " from top to bottom put on a splitshot sinker, a swivel, then a white artificial grub on the hook by pulling it through like "x"If you're using a spinning rod keep it simple, invest in a couple of original floating Rapalas in natural colors, if fish are there and feeding they will work, add a couple of inline spinners and a super duper and your set.
PS fishing shouldn't = stress
Is the jig the grub/ fish looking thing with a hook already through it?Ryan, looking at your links the rods are fine, the rest would better serve you on a smallmouth lake, the grubs will catch perch and if small enough trout, simply feed the hook on the jig through the grub and exit the hook where the wavey tail starts, on the retrieve let it bounce along the bottom. Your other option is, worm on bare hook with a bobber above, how much above you have to experiment with.
Good luck, try different things, have fun
