My Secret Fishing Spot

Updated on April 8, 2021

sometimes its not a secret for long

by Terri Mackinnon

Last year I put a video on about my opening weekend fishing from the shoreline. We went to one of my favorite fishing holes and we had spent a couple hours catching pike, bass and trout. I thought it would be fun to put the video online for some of our friends to share some of my success for the day. It was my secret location, or should I say I thought it was until today.

I did give some pretty good clues as to the area that my hidden spot was located even though I did not say exactly where it was. For some people that may know the area and some of the markers that were on the video it would have been helpful but I had not given out the exact location.

It's been over a year since I was there and on our way back from the cottage today we decided to stop and visit my favorite fishing spot again. We figured we would have an hour or so to try and catch last year's fish. Unfortunately we didn't end up catching anything but it was later in the day then we would normally fish this spot.

However, just as we were getting into our van to leave a man by the name of Jay approached us and asked if we had done a video last year and put it on You Tube. As he got closer it was funny to hear him say "You're the girl on the video, I knew this was the spot". Busted! Darn!

He told us that when he saw the video he figured that he knew the general area and that he would try and find my spot. Well he sure did! And then he told us how he had been catching some great fish while he was there. He had been back to my secret fishing spot many times since.

What a small world, and amazing coincidence that today at 1.00 pm I met someone that actually not only watched my video, LOL but actually traced down my secret fishing hole to now make it also his.

It was great to know that he had been having the same kind of success. My poor little secret fishing hole is no more a secret. Hopefully, No one else will find it! But if they do maybe we can make it a yearly tournament site.

As we drove home we couldn't help but laugh. What a coincidence, what was the chance? I now wondered who else has found my secret fishing hole. How many people would have been there opening day? Maybe next year I will make the trip to my secret spot to check. Just remember if you find my secret spot and you catch fish, put them back!
