How’s Balsam this year? Heading up next week.


Recommended Posts

Just wondering how the lake is doing as Im heading up for a week July 1st. Usually have a ton of luck in South Bay but last few years I been there in August and the fish seemed to move out by then.

Im chasing the bass and pike and will hit the usual spots of Ant Island and the narrows to Coboconk.

Any “Heads Up” appreciated.

uggg. so sad to hear "chasing pike" on Balsam. I used to love Balsam for musky but since we moved from Barrie 10 years ago it is no longer a destination for me. I imagine the musky population is suffering by now, but i hope I am wrong.

Well just a quick summary.

Pretty slow week.

A few average pike and bass but last day pulled a 4lbs. bass off Grand Island. Hitting Canal in a month to chase pike again.

Lake Ontario time right now so everything is good…

Kawarthas are a grind in early July as the bass adjust to summer water temperatures. Especially on calm clear sunny days. Friday it was cloudy with a chop and had the best day of fishing I’ve ever had in my life on the tri lakes, Fished a tournament Saturday didn’t have a limit until 1:30 in the afternoon. Cooler water temperatures than is standard for this time of year and the weed growth is behind as well.
