Hi Italo,Hope all is well.I’v been watching the show since the early days. Always like the local info you provide which is always accurate. You did a show on one of my local lakes and you had all the patterns and location down.I have a cousin from overseas coming to Canada and is a saltwater fisherman. He has asked to go fishing and prefers going for the big ones. I have booked a Salmon charter out on lake Ontario which would fit the bill.I also was going to take him out on my boat which is located in Elmville near barrie on the weekend of Aug 23.I have narrowed it down to Lake Simcoe for big Smallmouth bass and Lake Trout. Or trying for Salmon at the “hole” in Severn sound.Is there another body of water and spices I should consider in my area and what tactics and strategies do you recommend this time of year? Any advise is much appreciated.Thanks!Posted on August 6th, 2019
Hi Dom, thank you for your kind words. I think the combination of Lake Ontario and Lake Simcoe is excellent. My only reservation for both would be ugly weather and strong winds. In that case I would encourage you to have a Plan “B” and have two more protected waters ready to fish. Maybe you should consider :
- Bay of Quinte cranking for bass, pike and walleye along the weedlines. You could fish Big Bay, ON or if the winds are howling from the north-west, head down to Picton, ON and fish the west-shorelines of Hayward Longreach which will be protected from the strong winds.
- Lower Niagara River out of Queenston drifting with 4″ tubes for smallies and using jigs/grubs for walleye.
