Has anyone here fished up on Gouin Reservoir in Quebec? Just saw that Navionics has partnered up with the management team up there to update the sonar charts. Pretty cool that you might be able to go to a fairly remote location like this and have 1 foot contours showing on your Navionics mapping chip!

Yes I fished the Gouin about twenty years ago, on one of the houseboats with tendered aluminum boats.  I think I must have had a portable graph, but honestly cannot recall.  A Navionics chart would be very helpful indeed.

Yeah, would definitely be a pleasant surprise on a body of water like that to have a detailed Navionics chart! (-:

yes, I've been to the Gouin. The biggest concern is all the flooded timber and crap and how to fish it. There's probably 10 billion jigs broken off per acre.

But that's where the fish are! LOL I would rig swimbaits Texas style with a small Ultra Tungsten bullet weight at the nose!

Even with a very intense data set, 1 foot contour intervals are essentially a guessimation  limited by the experience of the cartographer or today probably the model that a computer program uses.

No, but have been talking about trying something like that or La Reserve Beauchene with a friend of mine from Quebec! Feeling like I've been missing out on these more remote trip because of commitments to tournaments & such!

    • Great day of laker fishing!

      I finally got a chance to scoot out on my own. Brought the GoPro with me for the first time this season. What a blast! It's kind of nice being on the rod instead of the net for a change.

    • 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
