Crankbaiting for Largemouth Bass is Excellent right now on Bay of Quinte, ON.

Posted on August 27th, 2009

I just spent all day cranking weedlines with my good friend Kam Anderson, his Dad and his son on the Upper Bay of Quinte.  We fought the wind all day long as it ripped from from west at 30+ mph!!  Thank goodness the 175 G3 is rigged with a Minn Kota 85 lb. thrust electric that enabled me to stay on the weedlines even during the strongest wind gusts.  All three of us were using the new Rapala TS2, R-Type & the Shift rods, equipped with Avantis, R-Type and Volt spinning reels, loaded with 20 lb. Rapala Titanium Braid, 20 lb. test fluorocarbbon leaders and an assortment of Rapala crankbaits.  The top producers again were the Rapala Tail Dancer in the #9 size (hot chub color), the new Rapala DT Thug, and the Rapala DTF7.  It seamed that the stronger the wind got, the more the largemouth bass hit!  In addition to landing lot’s of 3-4 lb. largemouth bass, we also landed a couple of nice 22-24″ walleye.
