Lac St-Louis

Post by Gecha (Gerry) »

It's been a while since I posted a fishing report.
I have been pretty busy all summer with different chores, but did some fishing around Montreal and up North Quebec. Nothing really spectacular to write about.
Last Friday, my son Martin wanted to go fishing. We launched around 11am and started jigging for walleyes. Nothing for the next 2 hours, so we switched to trolling. Did not take too long and we had some bites. We lost 2 huge bass while trying to net them.... my bad. That would have been a PB bass for Martin.
On the next bite, we were a lot more careful and ended up boating a nice 26" walleye. A PB for Martin.

Half an hour later, a nice pike hit his rod. Another PB for Martin.

We had a few more nice oversize walleyes and near the end of the day, a big 14.5" yellow perch jumped on his rod. Another PB for Martin.

Overall, a beautiful day on the water, lots of precious time with my son, and some great fishing memorable moments with pics to prove it.

Trolled a few hours yesterday, Wednesday Sept 1, but bites were tough.
3 bass, 2 pikes and 2 small perch. Nothing spectacular.
Lots of weeds, either loose or near surface.

Back on the same water Friday Sep 3 for about 2 hours in the afternoon.
Temp was cooler than previous outing. Wind and waves picked up around 4 pm so we choose to go back to launch before the rain.
Ended up with one big bass and a nice 19" walleye.

On the water Friday for a few hours of fishing.
Temp was cooler and some heavy wind gusts prevented from fishing our using spots.
We trolled mostly on the north side where there was less wind.
The walleyes did not show up, but bass were fairly aggressive. We caught over half a dozen, all good size, on crankbaits, all safely released.

Those are some healthy looking smallmouths ! Nice that they were consistently good-sized.
I do not exaggerate when I talk about fishing - I underestimate, like I say "just one more cast honey, then I'll come home" !
Keep Calm and... Fish On !
