Northern Ontario Smallmouth action.

Posted on August 11th, 2016

While most of us are targetting summer, southern Ontario smallmouth, many anglers are travelling north and taking advantage of trophy bass fishing even farther north of Thunder Bay, ON.

On a recent trip Joe Kubassek met his son and fished a lake a short driving distance from Thunder Bay, ON, where they caught several limits of walleye and some really nice smallmouth bass.


In northern Ontario the bass fishing is open-all year but few anglers target them. They are usually caught incidentally while anglers target walleye.

Northern smallmouth won’t hesitate taking a jig/minnow or jig/worm presentation meant for walleye and in many cases, they will be the first to strike. As summer progresses look for some excellent top-water smallmouth bass action, especially in northern lakes.
