The weather has been hot and so has the fishing all the way from the southern Ontario to north of Lake Superior.
Our good friends the Kubassek’s were fishing an inland lake north of Thunder Bay, ON and report the fishing was excellent for Smallmouth Bass and Walleye.
They fished artificial lures to catch both species. This was a family affair and Dad Joe had the pleasure of fishing with his son and daughter. That far north the bass and walleye are still in shallow water as they migrate from their spawning areas and disperse throughout a lake.
Best fishing that far north now is to fish shallow bays, shorelines, points and bars in water 7-12′ throughout the day using jigs/plastic grubs, live bait or trolling with Rapalas and shallow diving crankbaits.
