Quinte Update

The fishing has been stable with large fish caught on the troll while running deep diving cranks 25 feet down just East of Keith’s Shoal. The popular baits like the Reef-Runner 800, Manns Stretch 20+, Rapala Tail Dancers and Worden’s Sea Tiger in white or white with blue have been producing the most fish. Trolling speeds have been in the 1.7 to 2 mph range and the real windy days have produced the best.

Lots of fish are out in front of the cement factory in Picton Bay and there is also a good number of fish off of Sherman’s and Thompson’s Points. The jiggers have been doing good in these areas with a few nice walleye coming off the jig. In the next few weeks as the temperature drops the jig bite should improve as the fish start to relate to bottom.

The surface temperatures out in the deep water East of the Glenora Ferry have been in the 56 to 52 F range , while the Picton Bay area has been in 52-45 F range.

The long range forecast for the next week looks like more South winds and above normal temperatures so the water temps should hold close to the same for the week, which mean most fish will be in that 25 to 30 foot range.

Until next week keep you lines tight and fish on…
