Big Spring Walleye.

Posted on Thursday, June 6, 2019

I love to target Great Lakes post-spawn walleye when they start feeding in deep water. Especially when you can find them in 20-30′ depths and close to the bottom. That’s an easy time to target them fishing jigs/plastic grubs vertically.

These big Walleye can be concentrated in these areas early in the year but as the water warms up they will disperse in the main Great Lakes and often cruise open-water suspended looking to feed on large schools of baitfish, smelt and alewife. That’s when it’s best to troll for them.

It’s White Bass time!

Posted on Wednesday, June 5, 2019

I love to fish multi-species and one that I look forward to every spring in the Great Lakes is the White Bass, especially when the major run is on and they bunch-up in rivers.

My wife Barbara & I went out recently to see if the big females started to come in and they did. We landed several fish up to 17″. Even though the waters have been high and cold, these larger White Bass are very aggressive and smashed our Fishing Compete Mad Tom’s and Lunker City Fin-S Fish  fished on a 1/4 and 3/8 oz head. They should be in the rivers and harbors for at least a month and I hope people take advantage of this excellent fighting and tasting fish.

Late Spring drop-back Steelhead.

Posted on Monday, June 3, 2019

While most steelheaders have packed their gear away and are now focusing on big panfish like perch & crappie and of course, Walleye, some are still hitting the southern Ontario Great Lakes tributaries for drop-back steelhead.

Benjamin Reubeni was out recently and reports that you can still find many fish holding in some of the larger pools but that the water conditions are crystal clear and the fish very spooky. He landed several fish but has to stand way up-stream and out of sight as he float-drifted his offerings to holding fish. Even when he hooked a fish he tried to fight it from the upstream position so as not to spook the main fish holding in the pool too much. Light leader, small hook and small offereing (roe bag, bead or bug), was the rule.
