It’s Family Day on February 15, 2016 Fish’n Canada and Outdoor Journal radio team want’s to make sure you are having fun with your family that day. So we have put a list together of some events that are happening in Ontario that you might be interested in going to see with your family. Ontario 2016 […]
June’s HotSpot is a Muskie magnet, located at the mouth of Nogies Creek on Pigeon Lake. This is the edge of a weedline where the flat drops into deeper water. Troll the edge in 8-13 feet with Big Jointed minnow baits or In-line Bucktail Spinners, also a 34 0Z jig head with a Yamamoto swim bait works well. Hold On tight as these fish are strong from holding in the creeks high current flow in the spring.
If fishing is slow, try casting top water baits over the shallow weedflat in the early evening.
This Hotspot is a section of the Niagara River on the Canadian side. This is a typical Niagara River area where the fish will move in and out on given days. If the fish aren’t here, simply pick up and move down river. Searching is the key to finding fish. Try bouncing roe bags or minnows along the bottom on a 3-way swivel rig. Remember to vary the length of your leader and dropper.
Today’s Esnagi Lake Hotspot is a small cove at the end of a point that loads up with Pike and Walleye. The key to this area is… Baitfish. Start out with a fast moving presentation like a Spinnerbait or Jerkbait and then follow up with a jig and live bait combo. On overcast days, early in the morning or late in the evening, work the shallows and as the sun comes up, move deeper.There are lots of snags here in the form of logs and rocks so be prepared to lose some jigs!
Our Hotspot for this month is a small weedbed in a back bay along the Attawapiskat River in Northern Ontatrio. The Fish’n Canada guys fished this area in extreme high water levels and frigid water temperatures. In perfect conditions this place would rock! Try giant tube baits or other slow moving plastics and hang on!!!
This month’s hotspot is tucked away at the back of a long shallow finger at the top of the French River called Wigwam Bay. We’d highly recommend using the services of a Chaudière Lodge guide, this bay is really off the beaten path. Not much is known about this area as it does not conform to the normal Walleye-holding structure and cover of the French… the biggest reason is that this is one of the few pieces of water in the entire system that screams Large Mouth Bass… you’ll know what we mean when you get there.
This month’s Hotspot is an area of Hastie Lake in the Algoma region of Ontario that always seems to have some beauty fish on it. Under normal conditions we would highly recommend a popping topwater like a Pop R, but if that doesn’t work then pull out the Yamamoto Senko. Rig it whacky style on either a jig-head or a dropshot rig… and for the ultimate advantage, try marinating your soft plastics with a natural bait scent.
This month’s Hotspot is the Pickering Nuclear Power Generating Station. It’s a fish magnet all year round, but it really excels when Lake Ontario turns cold. Ang & Pete fish this spot when the main lake temperature is in the 50’s, while the outflow from the power-station is well into the 60’s. Both baitfish and game fish are attracted to this area.Try sweet corn and boilies for Carp and small dropshot baits or live bait for the Smallmouth. Remember to bring polarized glasses as you will be amazed just watching big fish swim by.
Most anglers checked during a three-day enforcement blitz in the Aurora and Peterborough areas were in compliance with Ontario’s fishing regulations. Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officers and the ministry’s canine unit patrolled tributaries along the north shore of Lake Ontario April 24 to 26, 2015, checking for compliance with Ontario sport fishing […]
