Local anglers will be out in hoards this weekend for the coveted bass opener. Guys and gals will be in search of lunkers like this beauty pulled from the Ottawa River by Corey Hackett two years ago.
And if you don’t think there’s something special about Micropterus – be they salmoides or dolomieu – just ask one of the local bass fishing organizations.
Ottawa is slowly becoming a largemouth & smallmouth bass fishing hub, thanks to groups like Renegade Bass, Bass Anglers of Ottawa and Petawawa Bassmasters.
Hey, if Bob Izumi and his son are willing to drive all the way from Oshawa to fish for bass up here, there must be something to it.
Regardless where you end-up heading this weekend, keep your line tight and your body inside the boat!
