I am in Canada (Ottawa,Ontario) for my daughter's wedding and was getting swamped with all the organisational details, ongoing since the last several months.....I was fast becoming an expert on lehengas, sherwanis, bangles and jewellery etc.etc.!

Enough, I had to get away from the ladies and start fishing to restore my sanity !

Thank my stars that I had packed my rod, reel and lures for just such an eventuality. I quickly chose a lake some 1.5 hours away that I used to fish a long time ago, knowing that it held smallmouth and
largemouth bass as well as pike, muskie and walleye.

After some initial trouble, I got a motorboat on rent for a couple of hours and headed out into the lake,
trolling various lures behind the boat.

It did not take long before a beautiful smallmouth bass struck at the lure and was safely boated, it's picture taken and then gently returned to the water.

Further trolling did not produce any results,neither did casting with the lures..... the weeds had grown vey high over the Canadian summer and without having weedless hooks it was always going to be a tough job.

The next day, we again tried a different lake and managed to pull one larger bass out of the weeds before we had to return back to Ottawa.

Thanks for sharing Kingfish!

BTW, what kind of fish do you have in Auss in creeks/small rivers?

I love fishing for SMB in creeks and smaller rivers and still remember those great days.
Got to love when they strike a drifting soft plastic jig in the deeper part of a shallow water flow.
Rebel crawfish (was suggested to me by Binu) was another great lure for smaller creeks.

Thanks Maruthu and sorry if I made you slightly nostalgic!

There are bass in the Australian rivers and creeks and some anglers go to great lengths to catch them
by taking trips into remote rivers, which they then drift and fish with kayaks or inflatable rafts.

I am told that there is a healthy population of bass near Sydney and I have thus bought some spinnerbaits for them here in Canada .... hope to put in a report at some stage.

Regards,
Kingfish

Thanks, Venkat.

The bass is considered to be one of the premier sports fish of North America and has a mass cult following.

I have never killed a bass nor allowed any of my fellow anglers to do so, I respect it too much.

Regards,
Kingfish

Nice going mate. The bass is a true sports fish. Would love to target bass some day on top water lures . May be USA next year.


Cheers,

Jeen

Thanks, Jeen.

Just bought some Hula Poppers to try for top water fishing for Australian bass.

Hope your USA trip comes through and we get to see your reports !

Good luck,
Kingfish
