Hi ItaloJust to follow upI took my kayak out to the scugog river today by east cross creek, only place i could find bass was rowing about 5km south into the deeper weeds where the it opens into the lake and throwing crank baits and swim baits over the weeds. All the lily pad beds and shallow vegetation had very thick weed beds growing almost to the surface and coming right up to the bottom of the lily pads, so thick, almost looked like an under water carpet. Seems most of the shallow weed areas in scugog have this, is that normal?, seems like the bass dont like it as they are all in deeper water than i would normally target bass. Also i was wondering if you can suggest another spot i i could try and have good luck with shallow bass fishing, ie frog and flipping jig, preferablely on a new lake?What lakes are best known for their largemouth fishing in ontario other than scugog?Im open to any info you can give!Sorry for all the questions, im new to ontario from out west. Thank you Italo, my last question, just wanted abit more info as i didnt find what i was expecting at the scugog river.Posted on August 7th, 2019
Hi Alex, yes, weeds can get pretty thick during hot sunny summers in Lake Scugog, the Scugog River and the adjoining rivers. The Omemee Pond above the Omemee, ON dam can produce some really big bass and also Goose Bay at the south end of Sturgeon Lake.
