Lac St. Pierre, St. Lawrence River, Quebec

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.

Lake Champlain, Quebec/Vermont/New York

This Hotspot is in a huge spawning bay for Largemouth Bass. On a previous trip Ang & Pete encountered unusually high water levels leaving all kinds of brush and wood under water… the perfect location to target early season Largemouth. To really take advantage of this gigantic and very productive body of water, anglers should obtain their Vermont, Quebec and New York fishing licenses.
