Italo, I watch your show on TSN every Saturday morning. I recently saw an episode of you fishing the upper Niagara River for walleye near shore, and full daylight, casting primarily diving and wobbling hard baits. What time of year was that footage recorded? I grew up on the shore of Lake Superior in Northern Ontario, but now live in the Niagara Region. I love to fish, and had plenty of excellent opportunities to do so growing up, but I am still unfamiliar with the available oppotunities here in the south. I am hoping you would be able to help me learn what really is available. I see from your weekly update, that taking advantage of the early bass season in NY State looks like a good idea.

Hi Landon…Most anglers fishing the Niagara for walleye either drift-fish with worm-harnesses/worms near the bottom or they troll with crankbaits. You can have good night-time/evening action casting crankbaits from shore on both the Lower & Upper Niagara wherever there are access to the water. I think the program you saw was cranking for walleye in the Belleville-area of the Bay of Quinte. We fish there most summers just casting & retrieving the Rapala Tail Dancer #9 around weedbeds and off weedlines that grow in 7-12\’ of water. Yes, I try and take advantage of all the open fishing seasons, including the all-year open season for bass in the NY Lake Erie waters….God bless you, Italo
