Hi Italo,Hope all is well and your having a great fishing season. I want to go up to the Bay of Quinte next week for a few days and I’m hoping you can point me in the right direction of what part of the bay would provide the best fishing for size and numbers of bass, pike and walleye. As well somewhere to stay and some must bring baits. I already know about the tail dancer from reading your blogs.Thanks very much.Posted on July 6th, 2015
That’s a lot of questions. Firstly, Big Bay on the Upper Bay of Quinte is very good in July/Aug. for all three species you are planning on catching. I stay at the Comfort Inn, Belleville since it is close to all amenities and just a 15 min drive to the Point Ann boat launch. You can also stay at Baycrest Cottages & Marine right on Big Island where you can rent or launch your own boat. Must bring baits are; Rapala Tail Dancer #9 in “hot-chub” color is “KING” for all three species cranked around the weeds in 5-12′ water. You can also fish spinners/worms in the main Bay basin targeting open-water walleye. Spinnerbaits will also work well fished right along the shoreline weeds for pike and largemouth. I also fish the Rapala Dives To 7 Flat around the weedlines for walleye and the Rapala Shad Rap in the open pockets around the thicker weeds for largemouth. Hope you have a great trip. Looking forward to seeing your catches!
