There are lakers there, but catching them from shore this time of year is about as likely as getting a date with a super-model ;)

 

Decent bass in that lake, mostly smallmouth. Jerkbaits, jigheads with plastics and a couple of good topwaters will probably do it for you.

Haliburtons in August eh? Crayfish. If it looks like, swims like, tastes like, a crayfish, that's the ticket. There is also the tube.

Same thing, just depends if yer Americain or Canajun :canadian:

 

The rubber cray will work. If you want put some liquid attractant on it.

 

Rebel crayfish crankbaits are great if you can get them bouncing off the bottom during the retrieve.

I caught a 44" Musky right under someones dock (Johnsons silver minnow with double yellow mister-twister)... while he was standing there telling me that he's been a cottager there for 30 years and never caught a thing ....it was sweet ... next day that whole shore had people fishing off their docks :)

 

Good luck .. and dont forget your camera

go to the Le Baron's out there in mississuga and get some of the spray on sents. I like the YUM LPT ones for $5 it's not that bad.

Get some of these : Shakey Jig

and rig it with a fake worm (like these) : YUM Dinger

rig it and fish it like this :

use braided line for sure as well.

good luck

save yourself some $ and skip the spray on scents....I don't think it makes a bit of difference to the bass.

Alrighty, thanks , everythng else i should be getting , that was the only thing i was thinking about haven't made a decision yet.

If you are a smoker, use the spray to help cover the smoke sent on your hands. I have noticed a diff. the the total of fish at the end of the day and I smoke. It's only $5, so it's less then 1/2 a pack of smokes... ;) But that's just me...

you can use it or not. I just find it helps smokers like me mask the sent we leave on the bait from our hands. it's not a be all end all thing but it does help i find looking at the # of fish the days i use it vs. the days i don't. to each thier own at the end of the day, this is just my 2 cents, not sents... ;)
