Rock Lake Walleye (Echo Bay Area)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I dragged my old man out for an afternoon of fishing today since he was on holidays and had nothing better to do. He kept saying "Ah theres no pickerel in Rock Lake. You and your chum went once and got nothing but Pike and Bass." Well this time I brought the depth finder and some common sense :D . We zig-zagged over top of a 7-15 foot shoal and nailed 5 Wallys in about 2-2 1/2 hours. We were dragging worm harnesses (pickerel rigs, spin rigs, ect) with worms and minnows, right off of the bottom. The colours were Fire Tiger/perch. I geuss the problem the first time was I was trolling waaaaaay too fast. I forgot how lazy these buggers are!

 

I didn't get any pictures in the boat as I forgot my camera at home, but I got a cutting block picture of the 4 out of 5 we kept. There is a #10 Clown XRap beside them for size comparision.

I have only fished Gordon. Similar but with less camps...

Only seen it in winter though. Tons of little hammerhandles and a few 'eyes to boot.

Lemme know if you fish it on open water...

 

Haven't been to Caribou...Guys I know rent huts there in winter...Apparently they are real cheap and the fishing isn't bad.

My buddy was at Caribou last week, they got 3 walleye and 2 pike drifting with worm harnesses. Me and him are gonna go and try Gordon lake and see what we can do B) .

Yah if it weren't for my old man badgering me to slow down, we probably would have never got them :D . Aaah I love being young and ignorant.

 

Also Limey thank you very much for the float jig setup, I meant to pm you back last night but forgot.

    • Fishing Hay Bay

      I'm almost ashamed to admit this ( lol), but I'm fishing Quinte for the first time at Hay Bay. We're staying at Bayview on Hay Bay cottages next weekend and I was hoping I could get a few pointers.  Wondering if it's a bit to early for walleye as friends have suggested that later in the Fall is better. I read a post that the Uzzick spinner works great but I can't find a single place around the GTA that sells them. I'll try the usual trolling with raps, worm harnesses and some spinners.

    • carp fishing kawartha lakes/London area.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area
