Hot time in Beauchêne!

Summer surprise in Quebec

They were after smallmouth bass, but then the lakers arrived

Of course, we also caught plenty of bass, which were smacking everything from bucktails, curly-tail grubs and drop-shot rigs to crankbaits, topwaters and spinnerbaits. (Jon and Patty hooked into several hammer-handle pike, too, on nearby Devil’s Lake.) After nine years of fishing in this Quebec wonderland, I have to say, it never gets old (especially when you have a beautiful boreal lake all to yourselves!).
