Late Nov. is producing lot’s of trophy-size walleye on the Lower Bay of Quinte, ON. Anglers are trolling water depths from 40-110′ covering both the west-side of Glenora, ON waters, all the way to the narrows that lead out to Lake Ontario to the east. The action has not been steady with anglers covering lot’s of water and finding fish in “pods” where they hook up a few fish trolling the same general area.
A variety of trolled deep-diving body baits are producing the best results. Among these the Rapala Tail Dancer #11 and the Rapala Trolls to 20 are producing well. Most anglers are running 100-150′ leads to the lures off of in-line planer boards. Trolling speeds are varying from 1 mph to 2 1/2 mph. Average lure trolling depth is 15-40′.
A good tip to cover water that is a little deeper with both Rapala deep-diving body-baits is to add a 1/4 to 1/2 oz., in-ine “keel-sinker” about 3-feet up from the lure. Depending you your trolling speed, you can get an additional 5-10′ diving depth our of the same lures.
