This Fish’n Canada episode takes Angelo Viola to Lac la Biche in Northern Alberta, where he teams up with fishing guide Ray Kohlruss to target some Big Northern Pike. They quickly discover though that big Walleye are much more interested in their giant baits than the pike!
This Fish’n Canada episode takes Pete Bowman to one of Saskatchewan’s natural fishing resources, Last Mountain Lake, where he teams up with Rob Schulz of G & S Marina Outfitters in search of early season Pike. Swimbaits work like magic to lure this hard-fighting fish, showing just how important it is to choose the right bait.
On this Fish’n Canada episode, Pete Bowman is fishing Whitby Harbour, one of the many harbours along the north shore of Lake Ontario, where a variety of game fish populate. Instead of targeting one species, Pete decides to set his hook on anything that is hungry. As he is tormented by a pack of jacked up & crazy Chinook Salmon, a new-found population of Northern Pike keep him sane!
On this episode Pete Bowman heads west to Alberta searching for big Northern Pike on Pinehurst Lake. The show theme however takes a turn when he and fishing partner Ray Kohlruss start catching big fat Walleye on giant Saltwater jigs.
This Hotspot is a very specific break-line on Lac St Pierre on the St Lawrence River in Quebec. It’s a major feeding area for Large and Small Mouth Bass, as well as Walleye and Pike. The current is deceivingly strong here so drifting baits very close to the bottom is the key. Tube jigs are the #1 choice here followed by curly tailed grubs and Dropshot finesse worms. Experiment with colors as the fish’s preferences seem to change daily.
This month’s Hotspot is a prespawn staging area for Northern Pike in front of Jackfish Bay on Esnagami Lake. Big fish will lie dormant in this area waiting for the exact moment that Mother Nature deems perfect for the trek into the shallows. By slowly running a #3 in-line spinner over these lethargic yet hungry beasts, an angler has a good chance of connecting with the fish of a lifetime. 40 + inch Pike are quite common in this area of the lake.
While driving to your favourite fishing hole, have you ever seen a pothole that was so big that you could fish out of it? As strange as that sounds, an angler in Russia did just that. His local road that he drive’s on every day (some of which are fishing days) in Rubtsovsk, has a […]
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!!!
Do you want to see a step in the right fishing direction? Well the following link is an article done on experimenting with Northern Pike being able to dislodge lures from different areas of their mouths. This, and studies like this, are what the world of fishing needs. I just read yet another article […]
The grass is always greener on the other side”… this is a saying that has been around for many years and we as people tend to believe it on an almost daily basis. Now fishermen… WELL… we take it to the extreme. If our quarry isn’t voraciously schooling up and inhaling everything we are throwing at them, then we’ve gotta’ move.
