Hi Italo, hope you are doing well. Have you ever fished in Restoule Ontario or surrounding area? If so would you be able to point me in the right direction as far as what depths and structure I should focus on and what techniques work this time of year it would be greatly appreciate.Posted on July 23rd, 2020
Hi Rad, I have fished the Restoule area quite a bit, especially on Lake Nipissing and Lake Nosbosing. Here are my suggestions for the different species:
Pike- cast inline spinners like Vibrax #4, 3″ wobbling spoons and 3/8 oz. spinnerbiats around and over any weeds along the shorelines, in bays and around open-water structure.
Smallmouth Bass- drag 4″ tubes with a 1/4 or 3/8 oz jighead around any open-water rocky structure on the break form 10-20′. Twitch a Rapala Rip Stop in the top 10′ around the structure. You can do the same technique around islands and points.
Largemouth Bass- find lily pads and shallow, mud-bottom bays averaging 2-5′ in depth and cast a weedless spoon and plastic trailer (like a 3/8 oz Johnson Silver Minnow) right over the thickest weeds and when you get to a pocket let it flutter down and then retrieve over the top of the thicker weeds/pads again. You can also try top-water lures around the weeds like the Rapala X-Rap Pop.
Walleye- fish the deeper structure in the 20-30′ range and use a jighead and half or whole nightcrawler right on the bottom during the middle of the day. Early and late in the day troll with a Rapala Husky Jerk or a worm harness in 20-15′ water off the shorelines.
Hope these produce fish for you…God bless you.
