Originally published: October 30th, 2019 This was the first Fish’n Canada episode of the 2019 fishing season and it truly was a highly anticipated one! It took place at the gorgeous Pleasant Cove Resort in Point au Baril Ontario, on Georgian Bay. I’ve been to Pleasant Cove before and this place always gets me excited. Another first […]
I’ll admit, I’m technically classed as an Old-Schooler. And trust me, there’s no embarrassment factor involved. That said, I am always looking for “new and improved” in every facet of fishing. This piece is about reverting to the basics—in this case, the fishing line. This photo shows you the ultimate in Old School, the classic […]
Location: Lake Nipissing, Ontario GPS: N46º 13.645′ W79º 55.728′ Species: Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Muskellunge This Hotspot was located during our 2016 Fish’n Canada Bootcamp* up at Chaudiere Lodge. It’s a back bay that harbours Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, the odd Pike, and if you’re really lucky, you could even tie into a […]
Location: Kashwakamak Lake, Ontario GPS: N44º 52.242′ W077º 0.585′ Species: Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass This Hotspot is a small Bass bay on the north side of Kashwakamak Lake. The key to this bay is the wood and cabbage weed—perfect for both species of Bass. Any Bass bait will work here. Just be aware that it can […]
Location: Roothouse Lake, Ontario GPS: N46º 37.573′ W083º 08.323′ Species: Brook Trout 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 […]
Location: Marten River, Ontario GPS: N46º 42.197′ W079º 46.155′ Species: Smallmouth Bass This Fish’n Canada Hotspot is a shallow flat area on the Marten River system that holds roaming, feeding Smallmouth during the summer and early fall months. Try throwing fast baits like spinnerbaits in spots like these. If the weeds aren’t too thick, try a […]
Location: Whitby Harbour, Ontario GPS: N43º 51.453′ W078º 56.363′ Species: Northern Pike, Chinook Salmon This Hotspot is the back end of Whitby Harbour. It was heavily featured in the Fish’n Canada episode, “Whitby Harbour Pikefest.” If you time it right, though, there will be a bunch of Salmon along with the Pike that gather here. […]
June’s Hotspot is a Speckled Trout, Lake Trout, Steelhead and Salmon waypoint… we know that because we just caught all of them there! Try casting spinners and small spoons like Cleos & Minnow baits up to 5″. Don’t hesitate to cast shallow and work out to the first break down to 12 feet.
On this Fish’n Canada episode, I (Pete Bowman) reunited with good buddy John Blanchard. Both Ang and I have shot with John and we certainly know how hardcore he is as an angler. He’s also a fishing guide, which means he knows his way around pretty much any water he fishes. And he knows how […]
Pete Bowman shows viewers why a stinger hook is an absolute must in this Fish’n Canada outtake.
