Angelo and Pete meet up with good friend and fishing guide Ryan Flaro, who guarantees they will catch Muskie on Lake St. Francis in 5 minutes. The boys are skeptical of catching ‘the fish of 10,000 casts’ that quickly, especially when they are armed with only Bass gear. Little do they know that Ryan will come through as promised, and they will catch the biggest Muskie of their lives!
Two very surprised fishermen recently caught a grass carp in the St. Lawrence River. This raises major concern as to the presence of the invasive fish. Pierre Thériault and Gerald Boucher, commercial fisherman from Lanoraie, northeast of Montreal, reeled in the 29-kilogram Grass Carp on May 27. Première carpe asiatique pêchée dans St-Laurent (64 lbs). […]
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 great place (not far from Montreal) to catch cold water Bass. The water has a slow taper down into deep water. Look for Big Smallies holding in 18 to 25 feet through December. Tubes and jigging spoons are a safe bet but feel free to experiment with live bait if required.
This is a Hotspot along the St. Lawrence River in Quebec that we just visited with the guys from Princecraft and had a great day. The Waypoint is primarily a Pike spot but you could nail a Largemouth or even a Muskie in the process. There are shallow weeds and reeds that lead into around 15+ feet of water. If you don’t get fish here, start moving around and look for weedlines, breaklines or even current breaks for basically “anything that swims”. The Waypoint is good from May into October. Early in the season fish shallow; as the year progresses, move deeper.
July’s HotSpot is a Bass area on the St. Lawrence system In Quebec. The St Lawrence is not renowned for its Largemouth fishing… however, if you find the right area it can pay off.
This is a huge shallow water spawning area that holds fish early in the bass season. Use spinnerbaits, weedless spoons, flipping jigs and Yamamoto Senkos. Work everything that looks bassy. A key here is to look for clean water.
June’s Hotspot is an island in the St. Lawrence River in Quebec. Walleye, Muskie and Pike will not only frequent the actual waypoint, but will use the whole perimeter of the island as well. There are also Bass in the area (make sure the season is open).
