Fishing Lac St Louis in Montreal

Headed our for a couple outings around Montreal, to fish the Lac St Louis portion of the St Lawrence River. First outing was a quick 2 hour shore fishing trip, that was all the time I had that day. I was targeting walleye and smallmouth bass using 3/8 OZ jigs with 3 inch grubs.

The water is still chocked with drifting weeds, so it was very hard to get a clean cast. I did manage 1 decent walleye when I finally avoided picking up weeds on my line, kept it for a neighbor that asked me to bring back some fish.


Headed out on a friend's boat the following day, for some multi species fishing. trolled for muskies unsuccessfully, until we got to a smallmouth bass spot. The bass weren't co-operating much, except for a tail hooked smally my buddy landed.

We switched to a shallow weedy area to target pike and largemouth bass. The fishing was slow, but my buddies managed some small pike and a largemouth bass on spinnerbaits. Hope to head our their again next week, possibly bring along some live shiners if I can get some before we head out.
