If you have ever fished any of the many reservoirs we have in southern Ontario you know that they can produce some really nice bass, pike, walleye and panfish. Most of these were created for water level control and many of them are accessible through conservation areas.
Our good friend Gabor Horvat knows that some of the best reservoir Smallmouth Bass fishing takes place in the fall when water temps start to fall below 70F.
Smallies in some lakes can go deeper in the summer time, but venture back into the shallower water as water temps cool off. That’s a great time to intercept them using topwater lures and especially crankbaits and twtitch-baits. One of my favorite is the DT series from Rapala because it enable you to fish a specific depth consistently. Amongst those the DTFlat7 is one of my favorite!!
