Hotspot – Montreal River Smallmouth Bass

Montreal River

Smallmouth Bass – N 47° 53.677’ W 80° 31.418’

Today’s Hotspot is where Nik latched onto his giant Smallmouth Bass.

The waypoint on your screen will get you right there.

On these larger river systems, I like to fish them much the same as I would a lake. By breaking a river down into sections, I can then dissect each spot and come up with what I deem as the highest potential fishing area.

For Nik’s fish, we have lots of weed cover, some really nice rock transitions and deeper water close by. Absolutely perfect!

As in lake fishing, a variety of baits will work, including top-waters, jerk baits, spinnerbaits, shallow crankbaits and an array of soft plastics rigged weedless.
