French River – N 46° 12.110’ W 79° 51.460’
Today’s Hotspot is a very cool looking stair-step dropoff right smack dab in the middle of the French River in Ontario. The waypoint on your screen will get you there.
This is the kind of spot that can be either cast or trolled. The key here is to cover lots of water. And don’t hesitate to run a high riding lure over 40 or even 50 feet of water. As we said in the show, always finish every retrieve with some kind of circular motion like a Figure 8 just in case you miss seeing a follower. Have a big net, as well as pliers and cutters on hand, and remember to treat these giants with the reverence they deserve.
