Anyone else finding that bass are hitting like crazy this year?? We were at my fave spot this weekend (dodging the deluge and the tornadoes...... :roll: ) and it was almost like "fish-on-call" - soon as I wet a line - BAM - I don't think my bowmate and I have eaten that well on a weekend for some time... :thumbup:

Can't speak to the bass, but the walleye are exceptional this year too. Might have something to do with the late season, or perhaps the horrendous bugs are keeping fishermen off the water and preserving the stocks. Nice looking spot you have there!

Nice doggie, a replacement for the Jack Russell that passed away earlier on?

I used to fish for smallmouth in the Parry Sound area and the catch usually was best early in the season and then became poorer towards late summer. By Sept former hotspots weren't producing at all. The late spring this year might be responsible for good results since in bass terms, maybe it's earlier in the season.

What were you using to catch them?

Yep - that's Wizard, my new bowmate (well "new" since 2 years ago) - also a Jack Russell, but a rough-coat instead of a smooth.

Oddly enough, I used none of my fancy gear - they were all taken by jerk-baiting worms on a little #6 hook, 5 to 6 feet down.....weird huh? Heading for Temagami next week, so we'll see what works up there. :)

sk8r we were in the East side of Algonquin Canada Day Weekend and found the same thing, I was throwing out a worm harness with a small spinner on it without a weight and could barely get 5 or 6 paddle strokes on before I had another Bass on. they were hitting whatever we were throwing in front of them.
Hopefully they are still as active, we are heading out in a few hours to spend a week having some fun.
Qurios to hear how you make out in Temagami.


Cheers
Rob
