Parry Sound Bass

Just returned from a mini road trip today from the Parry Sound district of Ontario and filmed 2 great shows in 2 days! Thursday was largemouth day and flipped n` pitched Strike King rage craws to ultra shallow natural structure and cover (cane, arrowheads, stumps, logs and pads) with my Ardent fishouflage flip n pitch reel loaded up with 20 lb fluorocarbon, a 4/0 extra wide gap X-point hook and 3/16 oz Strike King tour grade tungsten worm weight (non pegged). The hot color for the day was California Craw with its dark pumpkin and red flake finish.
Boated 7 good fish in total with 5 toothy critter bite offs and 2 fish break offs rubbing against the sharp rocky subsurface structure.
Today (friday august 19th) was smallmouth day and WOW was it good! Didn`t land any giants but caught over 3 good limits of chunky hard fighting brown bass with Strike King KVD Finesse worms rigged with a split shot 12"-18" above the worm which was cast to weededges, rock piles, sharp dropping rocky points and rock piles anywhere from 8-25+ feet of water.
Todays hot color was double header red (green pumpkin and red fleck) with a #1 Daiichi hook and 8-10 lbs fluorocarbon line and St.Croix legend 6'6" medium action xtreme spinning rods and Ardent`s S2000 Fishouflage reels.
Despite the bright blue bird skies and ultra slick water conditions, I was really satisfied with the results and look forward to returning to this awesome region again in the very near future.
