Species: Carp

This Carp Hotspot is a deep drop-off in front of Lakeside Cottages on Katchewanooka Lake. It’s a perfect Hotspot for guests at Lakeside as they can simply walk out of their cottage, cast out a line, then relax and wait.

Mike Williams (owner, Lakeside Cottages) has this Hotspot dialled in with respect to pre-baiting or feeding the area to draw in the fish. Once Carp arrive, they suck up every bit of feed and in the process, hopefully, find your sweet corn on a hair rig as well.

This is what we refer as a “perfect family Hotspot” because anyone and everyone can participate so long as they have the appropriate fishing license. It’s only accessible to Lakeside guests and, best of all, it’s extremely difficult to fish from a boat, leaving all the fish to the cottagers.

See how Pete and his son Hunter did at this location in the Fish’n Canada episode, “Lakeside Leisure.
