The weather was hazy, around 26 degrees, the water extremely shallow. The weeds are starting to foul up live bait, and the bass have moved away from shore now that the season is open and they have stopped spawning. As the fish weren't biting much, we left after about 2 hours, and headed for the St Lawrence river at the spot it intersects with the Outaouais / Ottawa river, which is a short drive from where we were. The panfish were biting well all afternoon, the kids must have hooked about 30 perch, rock bass and sunfish. I manage to catch a small Northern Pike, 26 inches, weighing just under 4 lbs.
