Big Bay on Quinte ?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, if I could I would be posting this on the BOQ site. I am having some sign on issues over there.

 

We are planning a trip to Shannonville on Friday and I am wondering about any reports for the Big Bay area ?

 

Most reports on the BOQ are for the reach.

 

With this cold this week I am wondering how the ice is building. We are going out of Snookies to target perch but a few walleye would be nice as well.

 

Any information and tips would be appreciated.

 

be safe out there.

 

Regards

There's plenty of ice in Big Bay. We were on a solid 6" of black ice. We (along with a bunch of others) all had bikes/sleds out there without issues.

 

The fishing......well, lol... it's been slower the past 4 days or so, but should pick-up soon! (hopefully!)

 

Be safe no matter how much ice is out there.

Big Bay yes, other areas are sketchy.

 

We also didn't do well over the weekend, spoke to a bunch of other guys and it was the same for everyone.

I fished big bay yesterday. I put 3 on the ice between 12pm-dark. Lots of perch too. The little buggers stole my bait and we ran out of minnows. Get lots of bait,you`ll need it.

 

Plenty of ice. About 8inches where we were.

 

There are two bait shops north of the 401. One is quinte outdoor sports, on 62 North, the other is protackle on 37 north. Protackle is open 5am-5pm, quinte outdoors is no good if you want bait early, they open later, not sure what time.

    • Nipissing West Bay weekend

      Hey guys! Had a great weekend of fishing and camping with my son this past weekend.  We camped on an island and fished , and fished...😁. Bite was hot, we caught some good numbers of pike...not big ones but really feisty ones. Got in to some bass, but none was pic worthy. Perch was on, all weekend,  we got a few jumbos while we trolled for walleye.  Speaking about walleye...we caught good numbers of those, most of them in between 10 -16 inches. We got keepers also, 2 nice walleye, 19 and 22

    • Getting that big bass?

      Hi all. I have a friend with a cottage on a private lake just north of Bancroft. It's a small lake full of largemouth and every year he sends out a pic of his big catch which looks to be around 7lbs. I only get up there once a year and have good success on senko's and scum frog's in the morning, however these have been more in the 3-4lb range. I'm hoping to target one of the trophy size fish, so my question is.....what lure and technique do you suggest for that big bass? I went to Cabela's and t
