Fishing In Superior Country: James Lindner and Jake Wallace visit Superior Country in Ontario, Canada, to catch multi-species of fish on various lures.
Dave and Tammy, the lodge owners of Whitefish Lake, have been catering to more bass fishermen in recent years due to the quality of the smallmouth bass fishing in the lake. Jake and I recently took a trip to Whitefish Lake to explore the lake and see what it had to offer.
We were not disappointed! We found a variety of different fish species in different habitats, including walleye, perch, and smallmouth bass. We used a variety of different lures and baits, including soft plastics, hair jigs, and swim baits. We found that the fish were most plentiful in the shallow weed beds, and that the quality of the bass in the lake was really impressive.
Finding the Right Habitat
We found that the key to success was finding the right habitat. We drove around looking for the best weeds we could find and were able to find a huge cabbage bed. As soon as we got into the dense cabbage bed, we were able to catch a nice walleye in just three casts.
We also found that the wind-blown points were great for catching smallmouth bass. We experimented with different lures and baits, including small soft plastics, grubs, crickets, and paddle tails. We found that the fish were not particularly picky, and that brightly colored baits worked best.
We also found that the inside weed lines that transitioned into rocks were great for catching walleyes. We used two specific profiles for walleyes: a straight tail bait and a suicide shed. The straight tail bait had a more erratic behavior in the water, while the suicide shed had a more loping action.
We had a great time exploring Whitefish Lake and catching a variety of different fish species. We found that the key to success was finding the right habitat and using the right lures and baits. We were able to catch some really big fish, including walleyes, perch, and smallmouth bass. We were also impressed by the quality of the bass in the lake. We highly recommend Whitefish Lake for anyone looking for a great fishing experience!
