Roothouse Lake on GPS

This Hotspot is on Roothouse Lake in the Algoma Region of Ontario. It’s a subtle point jutting from shore and dropping into deep water.

The best ways of fishing a structure like this are slow trolling, drifting, anchoring, or easing your way with a trolling motor and fan casting the shoreline.

For trolling try spoons, spinners, or hard-body baits like crankbaits and minnow baits.

When casting try spinners, EGB spoons, or jigs. And don’t forget to drop shot a small bait like a Yamamoto Shad Shape Worm.

Baits: Spoons, Spinners, Plastics
Presentation: Cast to Rocks and Trees, or Troll
Water depth: 2-15 feet

    Now that you are aware of these factors, the Ontario Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary 2019 should be stringently adhered to at all times. This area is not your average weekend fishing hole.

    Lake Roothouse contains many shallow shorelines which drop off quickly into an abyss which allows for some extreme structural interaction. Angelo’s “hot spot” is a prime example of what can be accomplished in these relatively shallow areas. The two small islands to the south-west of the fore mentioned “honey hole” should not be overlooked in the meantime.

    As you see, the “depths of despair” should never be part of your fishing experience.
