Our good friend Michael Kumar had a chance to fish with his friend Mike Costa on Rice Lake, ON in not-so nice fishing conditions. They planned on targeting both Large & Smallmouth Bass.
They fished soft-plastics and flipping jigs around shoreline and points that had a mix of rocks and weeds and also some deeper water weeds. Most of the fish caught hit soft-plastics fished slow along the bottom and also working flipping-jigs with a trailer along the bottom.
Due to strong winds and a cold front that dropped air temps about 15-decrees, they ended up landing just Largemouth Bass and a surprise Pike on a Vibrax spinner.
Fall is a great time to target both Smallmouth Bass and Largemouth Bass in the Kawartha Lakes, ON. Look for both species shallow and feeding in areas that has rocks/weeds mix. Slow presentations will work best using soft-plastics either weightless, like a Slugo, or with just enough weight to get them down a little quicker.
