Hi Italo, Your show is very informative and helpful. I am going to be fishing the Grand River towards Brantford (Cockshutt/Lorne) bridge and will be trying to catch some Walleye and Pike. 1. Would you recommend that I use minnows or lures? 2. Are these areas of the Grand River too shallow to catch fish?Thank YouPosted on May 21st, 2015
Thank you for your kind words and glad our TV show is informative & helpful. Yes, you can catch walleye, pike and bass throughout the lower Grand River, ON. I would suggest you target some of the slower flowing, deeper pools for pike and use a Vibrax #2 spinner. For the walleye try and find faster flows with deeper water and fish either 1/4 oz. jigs/3″ TriggerX twister-tail grubs, or the Rapala Shad Rap #5 or #7. Your chance at catching some of the larger walleye will be better if you fish about 1/2 hr before sunset and just after dark in those areas. For the smallmouth bass, once the season opens, the Jointed #7 Rapala works well along withe the Vibrax #2 spinner. The bass can be found throughout the river both in the shallower & deeper runs, faster and slower pools!
