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.

On this Fish’n Canada episode, Ang & Pete travel to Ontario’s Marten River Lodge, an establishment that has been around for 90 years!

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 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 month’s Hotspot is a breakline on White River Air’s Burton Lake. At first glance this certainly doesn’t look like a Walleye hotspot, but drop a jig down there when the water is in the high 50’s and hopefully you’ll have the same success that Pete had… which was excellent by the way. You should always try and catch some aggressive fish first with fast lures like floating minnow baits, suspending jerkbaits or in-line spinners. The key to this tactic in a high percentage area is, if the fish are biting, stay with it “but” If you don’t get bit within 5-10 minutes, go “back” over the area with slow moving baits like a jig. Remember this is one of 30 gorgeous lakes that White River Air has access to for fishing and hunting! Trust us, there are Walleye up here that have never seen a Jig and Minnow.
This is our 100th Hotspot, so we thought we would make it a doozy! It’s a dropoff right smack dab in the middle of the French River in Ontario. Muskie’s patrol this area searching for food. This is the kind of spot that can be either cast or trolled, it’s up to you. The key here is to cover lots of water … and don’t hesitate to run a high riding lure over 40, or even 50 feet of water. As we said in the show that we shot there, always finish every retrieve with some kind of circular motion like a figure 8 “just in case” you miss seeing a follower. Have a big net, as well as pliers and cutters on hand and remember to treat these giants with the reverence they deserve. Always release big Muskie!
This month’s Hotspot is a large exposed boulder protruding through the surface on Brace Lake. This Hotspot was loaded with Walleye of all sizes during our Fish’n Canada shoot, with a bonus big aggressive Pike added in… and you know he’s not the only big beast in the area. 1/8 ounce jigs with a plastic attractor, like a curly tail or shad body, worked best for us. You need to use as light a jig-head as possible since there are lots of other snaggy-rocks hidden below the surface. If the area slows down, give it time and then come back… it will definitely replenish itself with fish.
This month’s Panfish Hotspot is a tiny portion of the massive Mazinaw Lake which is a great place to teach kids the finer points of fishing. It’s important to remember when fishing with kids, it’s all about catching lots of fish… not necessarily big ones. Trust us when we tell you, as long as they’re catchin’, they’re happy! Try 3 – 8′ of water. When fishing with kids, live bait is always our #1 choice (Worms, Minnows, Leeches), either under a float or still fished below the boat. Be sure of all local live bait regulations as per the MNRF laws.
