A few questions about fishing niagara and region, tackle shops etc

Recommended Posts

Guest buick14

Hi there,

 

So in two weeks from now, I will be going up to niagara with my girlfriend....and she has promised me that I can bring the boat and go fishing for a day or two....

 

I was wondering, if anybody could steer me in the right direction so I dont have to spend the whole time fishing a dead zone..??

 

I would like to hit smallmouth bass, walleye, and well pretty much any species that will be in the area I am fishing (except for carp etc.)

(A sturgeon like the one in that video would be nice lol!!)

 

I have a 17ft boat, so if the weather is bad I know I gotta take it easy...........

 

Another question, are there any bait and tackle stores local to that area that have a good selection of higher end fishing rods/equipment and live bait?

 

thank you in advance!

 

-Mark

hey bud, the upper river will be ur best bet to fish. give ya smallies, largies, pike, muskie, walleye and anythin else could come by and grab a hook. as far as stores go, theres fishin niagara in fort erie, rite on the river, peters tackle in st catharines, fishmasters bait and tackle in dunnville, grimsby tackle in grimsby, fishing world in hamilton, bills bait and tackle in hamilton.

 

look up any of those stores and they all carry a good selection of stuff, fishing world and grimsby will have a larger selection of equipment though. depending on where ur coming from, u could swing by any of them, and they will all be able to give u information on the areas u wanna fish and what baits are working.

If it was a windier day, use the Welland R. as your plan B. On the upper Welland, Launch from E.C Brown park and go down stream toward city of Welland. Drift troll 10' and deeper or beat the shore (lots of slop along the edges). Launch from Chippewa for the lower Welland. Go right and you're heading to the Niagara. Go left and you can run all the way to the Pt Robinson aqueduct. Lots of spots to try either way.

Tubes,Drop shot with gulp minnow,worm harness,white twister tails,spinner baits,Jigging spoons. Try some of these.Upper is 10 to 20 ft deep average.Lower is deeper average 40 to 50ft . If you get a NY license open up a lot more water to fish.Hope this helps
