I fished a Bass Quebec tournament with Paul today on the Ottawa River. Cool morning air gave way to scortching heat by afternoon with winds from the east at 10 to 15 mph. Water temps were in the mid 70s in the bays and slightly cooler on the main river. It was another tough day of fishing with several good smallmouth being lost early in the morning, by both of us. The largemouth bite was also rather slow, but big bites are all you’re looking for in a tournament anyhow. Paul managed to Grubb up a couple of beauties over 5 pounds each by flipping to heavy cover. By the end of the day at weigh in, we finished a respectable 6th with just under 17 pounds for the best five fish. Overall, a pretty good day!
