Walleye fishing Quebec season opener

Headed out to the Quebec side of Lake St Francis a couple days after the Quebec walleye opener with my eldest son.

Plan was to spend some time seeking out both pike and walleye in a stretch of river we'd never been to before.

Started out fishing classic pike structure, non to be found. After running and gunning about a dozen spots with lures and spinnerbaits, we stumbled on some nice rock structure that seemed perfect for walleyes.

We switched to jig and grub combos, managed a jumbo 12 inch perch and some small smallmouth bass.


We then switched to trolling deeper water and hit one walleye in the 3-4 lb range, as well as some of those big smallmouth St Francis is famous for.


With that part of the mission accomplished, we tried for pike again, but weren't able to find any.
