Greg Klatt reports. I had a couple of clients out on Lake Muskoka that wanted to learn some patterns and locations for some smallmouth bass. With no wind and hot sun conditions I knew that the bite would be tough and the morning hours would be key to get onto any good fish. We blasted off from Gravenhurst, ON and headed for the northern section of the lake and started the day on some sand/rock and weed transitionâ€™s using top-water, tubes and small crankbaits. Within minutes we had the 1st fish on which was one of the biggest of the day…. a big solid Muskoka smallie that hit a Storm Chug Bug in 8ft of water.

That started the pace of the day that saw us boat 21 smallmouth bass, 1 walleye and 1 break-off pike. We also had another nice pike follow a lure right up to the boat.

We caught fish throughout the day but had to really slow our presentations down as the day progressed the fish were in a neutral/negative mood. Nevertheless, it was a great day on a beautiful lake with some nice scenery throughout the day!
