Summer Drum & Catfish.

Posted on August 3rd, 2021

Summertime when lake weeds are in full-bloom and water temperatures are warm enough to swim in brings different species of fish towards the shallows, weedbeds and weedlines where food is plentiful.

Our good friend Michael Kumar had a chance to take his wife Roma and daughter Isabella out casting lures around shallow weeds in 5-12′ water. They caught a nice mix of Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Drum and Channel Catfish all fishing the same areas.

Freshwater Drum can be aggressive in warm water and often strike lures targeted for Bass & Walleye.

Both 1/4 oz jigs fished with a plastic 4 1/2″ minnow worked well as well as casting Rapala crankbaits like the Tail Dancer in size #9 (TD9HC). They caught all of their fish in the Bay of Quinte out of Pointe Anne, ON.

Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our website.
