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.

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 on Roothouse Lake, in the Algoma region of Ontario. It’s a subtle point jutting from shore and dropping into deep water. The best ways of fishing a structure like this are slow trolling, drifting, anchoring, or easing your way with a trolling motor and fan casting the shoreline. For trolling, try spoons, spinners, or hard body baits like crankbaits and minnowbaits. When casting, try spinners, EGB spoons, jigs, and don’t forget Dropshotting a small bait like a Yamamoto Shad Shape Worm.
This Sheephead Hotspot is just out from the town of Picton Ontario on the Bay of Quinte. Vertical jigging baits like spoons, blade baits, or even ice fishing jigs, will all work here. Trolling crankbaits would also work well during the warmer months. To allow for a clean live release, try to fish water less than 30 feet deep. Sheephead, along with the majority of other game fish in this water, are susceptible to an inflated swim bladder if brought up too quickly from the deep. They also fight so hard, that when it comes time for releasing, they sometimes become very weak. Try the head first torpedo style release… it looks crazy, but it works!
This Fish’n Canada Carp Hotspot is on Rice Lake in southern Ontario. Rice Lake, along with the rest of the Kawartha Lakes, is known as an all-round fantastic fishing lake, with Carp included. During a past Fish’n Canada shoot, we pre-fed the area with boiled corn as to draw fish in. Next, we cast out sweet corn, extra large flavoured corn, as well as Pineapple Boilies on various slip and bolt rigs, and waited for our bite alarms to start singing. We feel Carp fishing is here to stay, so why not join us in seeking this great sportfish!
This Nagagami Lake Hotspot is on a breakline off a shallow hump about a hundred yards from the previous Hotspot of the month. When a changing weather system moves in and the shallow water fish seem to disappear, the first thing that should be checked is the adjacent deep water. Look for breaks, along with anything different, like boulders, or even deep weeds, that may hold fish. Once you re-discover the school, it’s game on again! Live bait is the number one choice, simply because that pressure change has put the entire food chain on pause, and quite honestly, meat on the hook is the ultimate way to go. Working slow is the key.
