Lake Manitouwabing - Strategy

Recommended Posts


 

Where would you fish?



Hi all, this is sort of test of my knowledge and see how you would fish this lake.  I have been to this place once last season and caught a lot of 1-3 lb smallmouth bass.  I hear there are some really big ones in there.  There are supposedly largemouth which I haven’t found yet when I was searching. I am limited to the eastern area of the lake as I do not own a gas powered boat.  I’ll be going around in either my canoe or inflatable boat equipped with my 30lb thrust trolling motor.  I have standard size deep cycle battery which can also be limiting as I do not want to have to paddle my way back.  I may have access to a 12 foot tinny, but there isn’t a gas motor for it. So I would also be using my trolling motor.  I’d prefer to take my Seahawk 500 which I’ll be decking out with hardwood floors and have a Pirahnamax 190c? I believe the model.
 

On the attached map image is basically where I think I can fish safely with my setup.  The yellow tacked area is where I fished and was successful.  To catch these guys I used a White/Cht
Spinnerbait and a black buzzbait.  They were caught early morning or in the evening, it was also in late July when I was there.  This time I will be there in early August.   I was learning to bass fish at this time (1st time on a boat and did a lot of research) and decided to use these two techniques in order to expand my knowledge.) I started off learning to use a swim jig and a standard jig first.  I didn’t try other techniques, now that I’m 1 season older and the all of the studying I have done for the past year, I’ve learned a lot more techniques and hope to utilize my expanded knowledge this
time around.

 

The other marked areas (fish heads) I decided that they would be a good spots.  I have also attached a backwoods map that shows the depth and where there are weedy areas.  Let me know if you think the areas I marked off would be good or not or if an area looks good where I haven’t placed a marker please do let me know. 


Here is the Google Maps Link.

I’d say the visibility of this lake is very clear in some parts (like 10-15ft) and in other parts it is about 3-5 ft. 

 

Hrm it looks like I can't add the other file (back wood maps).  I'll see if I can convert it to jpg.
