Here is a breif report from Captain Michael Weaver on how the Bay of Quinte is fishing right now…
“The water temperature is finally creeping down to the 40°F mark and the walleye are responding well. The areas around the ferry and Picton Harbor are producing great catches of trophy fish. The speed for us seems to be 1.7 on the Humminbird GPS. Renosky baits have been getting them to commit. One day alone we had 12 fish in the boat by 11:30 am.” -Captain Michael Weaver (Landshark)
More reports are on there way from Michael. Nice Fish!
For the past 5 years Sheldon Hatch has chosen the Kingston area on Lake Ontario for the August and September walleye run, “I feel (this area) produces the best trophy walleye opportunities in North America. Lake Erie has a great fishery, but Lake Ontario walleye are just straight-up big!”, said Sheldon.
The weather has continued to be fairly stable with only one bad day wind wise. Winds blowing from the SSW in the 30 knot range kept Sheldon off the Bay of Quinte where it opens up to Lake Ontario, “The fish and bait did not move far with the extreme weather and the bite continued to be consistent with a few walleye in the 12 pound range landed last week. The nights are getting colder and the walleye will start to migrate into the Bay of Quinte from the big lake while following the bait fish migration.”
“The past week has continued to produce a solid walleye bite which is a bit slower than August because the water temperatures are starting to drop. As we move into fall you need to find the warm pockets of water where the walleye like to hunt down bait and actively feed. The walleye are mostly attracted right now to large spinners, spoons and crank-baits with white and some flash. A few fish have been taken casting crank-baits but the majority of roaming walleye are being caught while trolling.”
