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 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.
This Hotspot is a medium sized hump rising from the depths of Nagagami Lake in northern Ontario. It’s a classic structure that will get even better as the season progresses. With water in the 50 – 60 degree area, you can try soft plastics on your jig, but always have a bucket of minnows on hand just in case. This structure tops out at around 8-10 feet, then drops off gradually to over 20, and finally plummets to 50 feet. Make sure you check all depths with your Garmin.
This Hotspot is a trolling area for Muskie on the French River. Unless you intimately know the French River and all of it’s Musky haunts, trolling is your best option to try and find active feeding fish. In the summer, run your baits anywhere from 3 – 5mph. Come late fall, try slowing down. Big Muskie Crankbaits and jointed plugs are a great choice. Vary the trolling depths by using a variety of diving lip sizes. Remember, although Muskie seem to be the toughest creature in the water, they too need care once caught; take a quick picture and then immediately release these wonderful beasts.
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.
