Well, the time has finally come. That little Mouse bait that you keep hearing Ang and Pete rave about is making a re-appearance. In this episode the boys head to British Columbia for some early season Smallmouth fishing and they have brought along the latest stage prototypes in their little rodent creation which they incidentally call Mighty Mo.
Why BC you ask, well for 2 reasons. Number 1, the Bass fishing in this province has been on fire for years (in case you didn’t know) and number 2, anglers can catch and release Bass all year long (check local catch retention regulations).
“It’s extremely hard for Ang and I to travel without all of our Bass gear” Pete says “normally it gets almost ridiculous as to the amount of stuff we bring”!
“But” Angelo retorts “When we’re bringing Mighty Mo along… we really don’t need anything else, HE’S THAT GOOD”!
Their home base for the shoot was Cowichan River Wilderness Resort, owned by Kenzie and Kyt Cuthbert. Our boys always come back with rave reviews on not only this facility but the fishing that’s very close by.
Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island was the Smallie water for the trip.
Ang says “We’ve fished Shawnigan before and it is a perfect venue to give new Mo a try.”
Well, new Mo came through with flying colors. Almost every area the boys tried on Shawnigan, they connected with surface fish. Jumping aggressive Smallies with a face full of fur!

GETTIN’ THERE with RAM TRUCKS
To get to today’s great topwater BC Smallmouth action we flew from Toronto to Vancouver. We then took our Ram on to the Tsawwassen BC Ferry to Duke Point. From there we headed south west onto 19 and then south on Hwy 1. Next we turned right on the Cowichan Valley Highway. We exited on South Shore Road, went through the town of Lake Cowichan to our final destination, the Cowichan River Wilderness Lodge.
