On this Fish’n Canada episode Pete Bowman ventures to the Ottawa River to meet up with old time friend and professional Muskie guide John Anderson. The guys catch up on 10 years of fish stories, but will they catch any fish? Does the stubborn Muskellunge end their fishing reunion in disappointment or bittersweet victory?!
On this Fish’n Canada episode, Ang & Pete travel to Ontario’s Marten River Lodge, an establishment that has been around for 90 years! Lodge owner Ray Sapiano has the boys fishing smallmouth bass on the extensive Marten River System, as well as cruising ATV’s to experience the supreme back-lake habitat…talk about an all-in-one trip!
On this Fish’n Canada episode, Pete Bowman ventures to Eastern Ontario’s Merland Park Cottages on the Bay of Quinte. With the opportunity to fish the Bay’s outstanding Walleye water, Pete instead tries something new by targeting the relatively unknown Sheephead species. This is a gamble Pete will never regret!
This episode has Angelo Viola and Roy Armes conquering bass of both species, for Roy’s last hurrah on the show as CEO & President of Cooper Tire before retirement. They connect in Young’s Point, Ontario at Clearview Cottage Resort on Clear Lake in The Kawarthas…an area instrumental to Ang’s growth as an angler. Since Roy’s stay is brief and the fishing is hot, Ang decides to stick around after Roy’s departure to reminisce and land a few more bass!
This episode celebrates the highlights and unseen footage of Fish’n Canada’s 2016 road trip through Ontario’s diverse province, from city fishing to back country wilderness. One of their biggest Ontario adventures includes hosting the 2016 edition of the Coopertire / Fish’n Canada Bootcamp, where the attendees get armed and dispatched for a series of hard-core fishing days, gain newfound knowledge and experience unforgettable angling action.
It has been a big month for Newfoundland and Labrador Wildlife officers. On June 2, an Alberta man pleaded guilty for hunting big game without a licence and possessing a firearm and ammunition without a valid licence. He will be sentenced on June 29. The Edmonton man was charged and convicted as the result of […]
This Episode takes Pete Bowman into the Algoma region of Ontario to Nagagami Lake, famed for it’s outstanding Walleye structure. Pete puts his electronics to work here as he ends up literally cherry picking Walleye that he sees on his sonar unit.
Angelo Viola heads north for part 2 of last week’s Nagagami Lake Walleye trip. This show depicts how unpredictable the sport of fishing can be, as a giant school of fish seems to up and disappear due to weather conditions. But you can’t stick a fork into Ang as he relocates and makes a great day out of a bad situation.
On this show Angelo takes the custom Fish’n Canada rig to Rice Lake Ontario and tries to go the unconventional route for Carp. Pete on the other hand sticks to the tried and proven shore for a more traditional Carp fishing approach. Will Ang come up with a whole new Carp system, or will Pete laugh at Ang’s $100,000 gamble?
This Hotspot is where we’ve caught some big specks in the past. This is a classic current seam that trout will use as a feeding and resting area. Spinners, Minnow Baits, and Live Bait, will all work here. As a word of caution, PLEASE be careful here, as the water rushing down from the Pine Portage dam is extremely fast. We here at Fish’n Canada highly recommend a fishing guide on your first trip to the Nipigon, for not only the good fishing areas, but safety to you and your boat.
This Hotspot is a huge point on Eagle Lake just around the corner from Eagle Lake Island Lodge. This is a classic Muskie spot with a feeding flat adjacent to deep water. During a past Fish’n Canada shoot, we had a big fish follow here on the first day of the trip but couldn’t convert it to a bite… such is Muskie fishing. Casting is effective here because you can cover the flat and deep water in a relatively short time-frame. Double Bucktail spinners, as well as surface baits, and big Muskie cranks, will all work here. Try using a fluorocarbon leader to get fussier fish to bite.
This hotspot is where Mr. Bass “Roland Martin” put on his mini-clinic for all to see during a past Fish’n Canada episode. Although this spot is not a complete secret, we’ll bet these Largemouth have never been sifted through like they were today… especially by one person! The area is a weedbed between two islands. Topwaters, Spinnerbaits, Squarebill Crankbaits, as well as worm and crayfish imitating plastics, all will work here. This is what we call a “quick-hit” spot, meaning fish fast, and if you don’t have any action within 15 minutes… move on.
This Hotspot is a great area for Muskie, with the odd Northern Pike and Bass thrown in as well. This is a classic example of a breakline on the deep edge of a big shallow weedy bay. Game-fish will traverse from Edward to Chicken Islands, all the while searching for food. Casting & trolling are both effective. If you’re looking for a giant fish, then use the biggest baits you have. If however you’re looking just to get bit, downsize to something considered big for bass, or small for Pike & Muskie.
