French River, hot weather Bass action.

Posted on Saturday, August 8, 2020

Our good friend Gabor Horvat takes an annual trip to the French River that connects to Georgian Bay targeting Pike and Largemouth Bass.

This year probably due to the hot weather/water conditions the Bass cooperatied much more then the Pike. He reports that in the  last 16 years he did not notice temperature as high as this summer.

Inside their cabin was a balmy 35C degrees, and went “down” to 27 C during the night. By the way, NO Air conditioners are in the cabins.

The water temp was as high as 85F (29.5 C degrees), at 11:30AM .

The first morning Nathan was able to catch his first bass.  The best time for fishing was from 6am to 9am. After swimming or relaxing…

Summer Great Lakes Lake Trout.

Posted on Thursday, August 6, 2020

I love getting out on Lake Ontario for mixed-fish action in deeper water. While many anglers concentrate on Salmon I love to get the odd Brown, Steelhead and especially big Lake Trout. Lakers have taken a beating from the Sea Lamprey but have really made a comeback from stocking and anglers releasing most of the Lake Ontario Lakers they catch.

I was recently out with Capt. Aldo Nava aboard his www.niagarafishingadventrues.com charter boat and we did just that, caught a really nice mix of Salmon & Trout.

Big Lakers are often marked as big hooks right on the bottom while Salmon, Browns and Steelhead are suspended in the water column. To target Lakers just make sure your downriggers are running the cannonballs right along the bottom. Some anglers will continue to run a wobbling spoon, others a flasher & fly and others a “gang-troll” with a floating crankbait running behind it. Sometimes Lakers will hit mid-depth running lures, but most of the time the best action is along the bottom!

Kawartha Lakes, ON Bass update.

Posted on Wednesday, August 5, 2020

Anglers that are targeting both Smallmouth & Largemouth Bass in the Kawartha Chain of Lakes, ON are confirming the fishing is excellent. We are hearing reports from Lake Scugog, Rice Lake, Stoney Lake and Buckhorn Lake that both species are in shallow water and feeding steadily.

This is probably due to the stable, warm weather we have been having which has allowed water temperatures to rise and aquatic vegetation to flourish. Anglers are mostly catching both species in open-water where there is a mix of rocks and weeds in depths as shallow as 2-6′. Weedlines are also producing their share of fish.

Most have been caught on an assortment of soft–plastics and one of my favorite is the Fishing Compete Zipper Worm line!
