Pike, I like.

Trout will make you shout.

Salmon are slammin'.

But BASS, are a kick in the -ss!

I decided to take a break from the trolling in Lake Ontario for trout and salmon due to unpredictable weather and to catch up on some of the bass fishing that I missed earlier in the season. I had a fun time fishing two very different bodies of water. First was a wetland/pond complex and fished topwater - Spro frog and caught a number of bass in the slop. I also caught an evening bite at a beautiful Finger Lake fishing tubes in deeper water on the bottom - 30 ft - off of points and coves with great success. Here are some of the highlights of both trips.







I capped the evening off with this nice smallmouth. It was a neat experience fishing two completely different bodies of water on back-to-back trips, one eutrophic and the other oligotrophic to mesotrophic, and which required drastically different approaches to catch fish.

It's good to get back to what most of us started at... Bass fishing is a blast ,there is nothing better than setting a hook when fishing top water, or setting the hook when punching mats flipping or pitching.. I have taken the past few years off from the big water to concentrate on multi species fishing... but bass always is the best.

Nice fish, that Smallie will be a few pounds heavier in a few months; the fall is the best time for Small mouths, when they put the feed bag on and are aggressive as hell.

Thanks for sharing
