Outdoor Journal Radio – “Ask the Experts” at Radioworld

As most of you already know, Radioworld is the “Ask the Experts” co-host on Outdoor Journal Radio each Saturday morning on Sportsnet Radio AM590 Toronto!

Starting this Saturday, Radioworld will be canvassing it’s ProStaff in and around the Bay of Quinte, gathering their hints, tips and tricks, what’s hot and what’s not in catching TROPHY Walleye on these waters.

Why now? If you didn’t know already, the trophy walleye come late fall and winter and a little sacrifice in creature comforts go a long way to victory!

Each week myself or Lawren will talk about what is happening on the Bay right now, where they are biting and some results from the week prior.  To ensure you are not missing any opportunities we will post all of the information here on our blog and include pictures, names and contact information for every ProStaffer or Guide featured the following  Monday morning! 

Radioworld is the proven experts in Fishing Electronics and we are counting on our Team to help you put more fish in the boat or provide a guiding opportunity for those without!

Just this week I recieved multiple emails from our Team talking about a wide variety of species including Musky, Salmon, Trout and Walleye (strange that no one mentioned bass)!  Here is one of the emails I received….

“I have been on the lake looking for early walleye.
So far I have been successful finding walleye in the 7 – 10 lb range.

Most of the fish have been found over 40 feet of water. My most productive speed has been 1.7 mph purple has been a hot color. Almost all fish have been coming of purple reef runners using in line boards.

There has been no better time the bite seems to be strong all day. I will be out again on the weekend.”

Just back from Quinte

Well I spent the long weekend on the Bay of Quinte, doing a little fishing and “Getting Schooled” by the best in the game!  I attended the blast off and weigh-ins for the CSFL BassMania – Eastern Tour Events on the Bay of Quinte this past weekend.

Wow, what a clinic that was!  Great efforts, records smashed and the who’s who of competitive Bass Fishing!  One day one, 24 of the 75 teams weighed in over 20 lbs… an impressive feat for sure, however none better than Chris and Cory Johnston with an impressive 27.30 lb bag! (Bay of Quinte record)

27.3 lb record bag on Bay of Quinte!

Almost 3 lbs behind Chris and Cory, Mike Desforges and Doug Brownridge with an impressive bag at 24.5 lbs with Curtis Richardson (sponsored by Radioworld) and partner Rob Webster with 24.3 lbs for third place!

Day 2 results also came in through the roof with another large sack by Chris Giles and Jim Dodd! It was great seeing Bob and Darren Izumi on the water too, placing 3rd on Day 2!!

Day three was restricted to the Bay itself, which lead most to believe that it was going to be strictly bucket-mouths, but low and behold Chris and Cory came back strong on Day 3 weighing an impressive 20.7 lbs of smallies and one largie in the mix to take first place again!

Chris and Cory Johnston

Day 3 was a tired yet competive group with Paul and Larry Jones coming in second place just .2 lbs shy of the Johnstons and father/son team Jim and John MacDonald placing third at 19.3 lbs.

Many familiar names in the top 10 included Bob and Darren Izumi, Barry Graves and Jason Gough, Carey Miller and Andrew Jamieson, Pete Bartonek and Craig Sevink.You can get the complete lowdown by visiting www.bigfatbass.comSpecial thanks to all of our supporters.

Back from vacation!

Well I am back from vacation and what a great time away I had!

Florida… NO!  Vegas…. NO!  European Cruise…. NO!    A nice relaxing week on the Bay of Quinte! YES!!!   In my opinion, Canada can provide the best kind of vacation for a guy like me.

I started off by heading down to my vacation place on the Bay of Quinte, boat in tow.

The Bay of Quinte is renowned for World Class Walleye fishing!

I was on the water every day, fishing weed lines mostly.  This time of year the walleye tend to bury themselves in the shallow and newly emergin weeds. Casting Berkley Flicker Shad outside of the weeds was the perfect solution for hitting my limit each day!
A few weeks back I installed a new MinnKota Terrova 80 with I-Pilot on my boat (replacing a cable steer Maxxum 80). I had plenty of time to get to know this electric motor and LOVE it.  In my opinion this motor is the BEST Accessory I could have added. For the type of fishing I do, the motor proved to be convenient, easy to use and provide better boat handling that I could do on my own (I never got the hang of cable steer, under power, while casting or trying to tie a line… LOL).  

I have also upgraded my console Chartplotter/Sonar to a Humminbird 998Csi which is linked to a Humminbird 788CiHD on my bow!  These are excellent units, providing bright sunlight-readable displays and top notch sonar views. Combined with the Navionics Platinum Plus and Navionics Hot Maps Canada Premium charts, I had the best information available to navigate safely and understand the underwater structure!

Later in the week I returned home, parked the boat and grabbed my trailer loaded with the ATV’s.

A large group of us (19 riders) headed down to the bottom end of Prince Edward County (Point Petrie) and had a blast….

Yes this is me (the guy standing on the seat of his ATV on the left) with wet feet!
We did manage to dry off and have something to eat!

Lunch was Wild Boar and Bison Burgers and Venison Sausage compliments of Meat Monger Sean Kelly from Black Angus Meats and beer!

Now its back to work time!
