Ontario Walleye Fishing Tips

In the Spring, the best way to catch a trophy Ontario Walleye is to troll along the shoreline just before dark or at day-break.  In the Summer when it gets hot in Ontario, many of the big trophy Walleyes go deep. In this case, you should try drifting really slowly in the deep water.  They can still be taken in the early morning or late evening close to shore but during the day, try trolling really slow with a 3-way swivel rig and a worm harness. 15 feet deep is a good place to start while trolling along deep drop-offs or deep weed beds.  In springtime Ontario walleye will take almost any bait or lure, but may be more challenging to catch through the summer months. Fall in Ontario often brings another peak of walleye feeding activity.  Casting or trolling with spinners or minnow-imitating plugs is a good bet. Special worm harness rigs of spinners and beads are often trolled. Jigs, either traditional bucktails, or tipped with any of the modern plastics, a piece of worm or minnow are Ontario walleye angling favorites.

Lake Ontario Salmon Fishing

With one of the most vibrant populations of trout and salmon in the Great Lakes, the west end of Lake Ontario can be an exciting fishery-if you understand how to locate fish and trigger strikes.  In the spring target schools of salmon in 12-40 feet deep, the early spring season is a good time for shallow-water techniques.  Minnow-style plugs such as the reef runner dominate lure selection.  In shallow water, a Slide Diver and braided line works best.  An angler can run 50 feet or more of line behind the diving planer so salmon aren't spooked by the boat.  Downrigger lines can be lowered to tempt salmon close to the lake bottom.  In late summer and fall, salmon begin to stage around their spawning streams, and successful anglers target the drop-offs in 80-200 feet.  Chinook salmon aggressively feed before heading up the rivers to spawn.

Lake Erie Smallmouth Bass Fishing

On Lake Erie, smallmouths gang up on specific structures, and there's usually a sweet spot on that structure. Surrounded by gobies, bass don't need to roam.  Drop-shot rigs allow you to place a bait on the bulls-eye.  Read it on sonar and drop bait vertically.  In summer, smallmouth bass often suspend on subtle, deep-basin structure - 40 feet down in the Western Basin and 60 feet down in the Eastern Basin.  The best way to catch them is to drop a bait down to their level and hold it there with very little movement.  On Western Lake Erie look for small isolated points, corners, and high spots on deep humps, key spots 25-35 feet deep.  Find structure that meets the main-lake basin.  Structure ends on Lake Erie at about 40 feet, so you're looking for anomalies on that last bit of structure where it meets the basin.  Schools of big bass gather on high spots, rockpiles, outcroppings, wrecks, or anything different adjacent to that comparatively homogenous basin flat.

Lake St. Clair Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Drop-shot rigs make good coverage tools.  The best way to find smallmouth bass on Lake St Clair is to locate their forage.  That means to keep moving and fishing.  Look for hard spots in the weeds on Lake St. Clair.  During the crawfish hatch, find strips of hard bottom that create pockets in vegetation.  They can produce for weeks at a time.  Drop-shot rigs are tactile; ideal for feeling your way around and finding patches of gravel, rock, and other hard-bottom areas near weededges down to 18 feet.
