This month’s Hotspot is a breakline on White River Air’s Burton Lake. At first glance this certainly doesn’t look like a Walleye hotspot, but drop a jig down there when the water is in the high 50’s and hopefully you’ll have the same success that Pete had… which was excellent by the way. You should always try and catch some aggressive fish first with fast lures like floating minnow baits, suspending jerkbaits or in-line spinners. The key to this tactic in a high percentage area is, if the fish are biting, stay with it “but” If you don’t get bit within 5-10 minutes, go “back” over the area with slow moving baits like a jig. Remember this is one of 30 gorgeous lakes that White River Air has access to for fishing and hunting! Trust us, there are Walleye up here that have never seen a Jig and Minnow.
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 break close to an island on one of Moose Territories Lodge’s many Walleye lakes. Work the entire area from shallow to 20+ feet. Start with some form of live bait and if the fishing is crazy then change to artificials. Trolling, jigging or simply dragging live bait are all great options.
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!
Fan Mail from Ken Shaw My two boys and I go away for a fishing trip each year. It is usually a fly-in to Northern Ontario where we only catch Northern Pike and mosquitoes. This year we did something different. Friend Leo Stakos convinced us to go to Deep Water Lodge on lake Temagami. One […]
