ItaloI would like to go fishing for walleye on the Bay of Quinte during the last half of October. Where should I launch my boat and what area should I be fishing in during this time of year? I am unfamiliar with the waters in this area.Posted on October 11th, 2016
Hi Norman, best to launch at Glenora Ferry, ON and fish Adolphus Reach. Most anglers troll there from now until ice-up using in-line planer boards, 100-300′ flat-line leads with deep-diving body baits that swim down to 30′ like the Rapala Tail Dancer 11.
Most of the walleye are suspended in water depths from 40-110′, swimming 15-30′ below the surface. Good trolling speeds are 1.5-2.5 mph. Sometimes they are closer to the shorelines, sometimes right in the middle. You will see boats trolling, just watch for results.
