Any Canal Lake tips? Heading up next week

Recommended Posts

Having a great time on Lake Ontario in deep water, but renting a week on Canal next week instead of the usual Balsam.

I have some experience on Canal but it was a few years back. I remember weed patches etc. and not deep… (could be wrong).

Will be chasing The usual pike/bass etc.

Any tips appreciated, looks like rain mainly…

Thanks ahead.

Shallow and weedy, deepest parts are in the marked channel. 

For bass, weighted senkos in any pocket you can find.

Pike love the spinnerbaits, chartreuse works well.

Sorry, didn’t update.

With ReefRunners help I had a decent time on Canal. We ended up with 7-9 3 lbs. bass and 1 @ 4lbs. Nothing huge but definitely a bass lake and they are there if you know where to look ( 6-8 ft edge of weeds for us ).

Only 1 pike surprisingly…
