July’s Hotspot is Woodsman Point on Lake Simcoe for Smallmouth Bass. This is close to one of the best spawning areas on the lake.

March’s hotspot is a long shallow shoal that runs between Duclos point and Georgina Island. Work the edges in 8 to 14 feet with crankbaits or tube jigs, also try throwing topwater baits or spinners over the shallow rocks on top of the shoal. Big Smallmouth frequent this reef so hold on tight. Remember if you catch a trophy size fish, take a picture and let the fish go free to fight another day! A replica mount of the fish will last a lifetime.
