Weather reports called for rain all day with scattered thunderstorms and possible high wind gusts. Lately the temperature has cooled down and this meant that the water temp would be cooler.

We chose Gloucester Pool as it’s a relatively short drive from us. We planned to stay on Little Lake because we needed to be able to get off the water when the thunderstorms hit. We also knew that the fishing would be phenomenal with the weather that was forecast, so we were really only planning a half day on the lake.

Fishing Gloucester Pool, ONWe arrived and launched in rain and moderate winds. As soon as we reached our first spot, BAM! My fishing partner caught a largie.

Fish were caught on the BPS 4″ Humpin’ Toad rigged with a 5/0 EWG hook. We also caught fish on 1/4-oz. white spinner baits with double willow blades. I lost several white chatter baits due to pike bite-offs.

We had plenty of blow-ups on the BPS Humpin’ Toad and had a great time with the non-stop action. I don’t think I’ve ever had time go by so quickly. We didn’t check our watches until 2pm and realized that we were overdue for getting off the water.

Northern pike also seemed to love the topwater soft frogs. I caught 5 Pike on the Humpin’ Toad, accidentally, as well as a nice musky follow to the boat.

Bass were definitely active and were found on the edge of weedy areas. Lilly pads and pencil weeds were definitely the ticket. If they were wind-blown, then they were sure bets for action. We also found bass in shallow areas on stumps and docks. The colder water these days seems to have made them come up shallow.

Fall fishing will be a blast this year!
