The previous 2 days in southern Ontario had rain and low pressure. My friend and I had the day off and really wanted to fish. We knew that fishing was going to be hard as a high pressure system was just moving in the night before. We took these difficult conditions as a challenge by mother nature.

We arrived just before daybreak and launched our boat at Lauderdale Marina. We immediately began fishing deep weedlines in Welsh Bay and hooked up with several northern pike. This was not what we wanted!

Largemouth bass were found by fishing weedy areas with mixed weeds. Largemouth had moved into cover and were found scattered along the edges of windblown vegetation. We used slow presentations with natural colors.

Deep rocky points were fished using a drop shot rig. We used small natural colors for Smallmouth and had several good fish.

Fishing Summary:Fishing Sparrow Lake, ON, largemouth

Because we love fishing we took the difficult conditions as a challenge. Any tournament guys will tell you that a great angler has to be able to read changing conditions and adapt. If we were fishing a tournament this day we would have had a 12-13 pound Mixed bag. Look for weeds and cover. Deep points are great for smallmouth – but you have to know how to fish deeper water to get the bigguns if the weather isn’t co-operating.
