Hello Italo!I’m a novice fisherman that has only really targeted trout and salmon in my local Georgian Bay tributaries. Bass season is fast approaching and I would love to give that a shot! Catching bass at my friend’s cottage in Muskoka is a piece of cake, however, I don’t even know where to start in my area. I’m located in Thornbury, Ontario and sadly I don’t have access to a boat (but I may be persuaded to get a canoe). Can you suggest a location near me and set up to try my hand at bass fishing? Thanks!-Alex

Hi Alex, all of the Great Lakes tributaries this time of the year and throughout the summer get migrations of smallmouth bass.  I suggest you fish the mouth and lower sections of the tributary nearest you from shore casting either a Vibrax #2 or #3 spinner, a Jointed #7 Rapala, or fishing 1/4 oz jigs and plastic grubs along the bottom. If you do end of getting a canoe you  will be access more water and in some tributaries like the Saugeen River, you can catch bass and musky pretty well in-bewteen all the dams, even way upstream…God bless you.
