They Bay of Quinte has become the walleye capital of the Ontario. Huge ones are caught here day in and day out in all seasons. Trolling seems to be the most effective method of catching them here, but if you find a hole where they are stacked up, jigging a grub or minnow can also be very effective. Bright flashy colours of lures are the norm here and always seem to produce. Colours like chartreuse and orange really produce a bite from the monster eyes and they will do anything to chase them down. Get a few Rapala Tail Dancers that dive anywhere from 10-20 feet and you’ll be setting hooks all day long.

Smallmouth bass are also very plentiful in the bay. They are easily caught in drop off areas where is a lot of rocks.

Check the back bays, any thick vegetation, or in and around docks.
