Pre-fish on Bay of Quinte for Gar produces Trophy Walleye.Posted on June 16th, 2009
I had the opportunity to pre-fish the Bay of Quinte to do a Gar Pike TV show this past Sunday and Monday with my friends Kam Anderson and Sean. We were searching the shorelines for concentrations of Gar Pike and also looking for them along open-water rock-humps, weedbeds and weedlines. Along with finding two excellent Gar Pike spots, we also caught quite a few good size walleye.

Sean started the morning off by catching the first walleye about 15 min. after we started fishing right off a weedline across from Massassauga Point.

Kam Anderson ended-up catching the largest walleye fishing a shallow-weedline in 6-7′ of water right in the Belleville, ON city limits.

I landed several good-size walleye including the above fish.

The walleye were so concentrated in some spots that Kam & Sean even had a double-header hook-up.

If you are planning on going down to the Bay of Quinte, make sure to take some of the Rapala Tail Dancers in the #9 size and “hot-chub” colors….that’s all we used to catch our fish. Most weedlines growing in 8-12′ of water are holding good number of walleye.
