Canadian Mist Keeps on Rolling

July 29, 2015

We have new photos and confirmation that Xtreme Bass Tackle™ Canadian Mist continues to put fish in the boat. Thanks to Matt Kar (St. Catherines, Ontario), who although not disclosing the location of his catch has documented once again how Canadian Mist dominates the bait industry in catching smallmouth bass everywhere. Matt says that he primarily fishes the Niagara River, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. MattKar1 MattKar2 Thank you Matt for sharing this moment with us.

St. Clair Smallmouth Liking New Tube Color: Sweet Green LE

May 12, 2015
Sweet Green OC

Xtreme Bass Tackle tube Sweet Green LE

Newly introduced in May of 2015, this tri-laminate tube has already made waves. Last weekend the Xtreme Bass Tackle™ staff took this limited edition bait out to play and got good results.

05-08-2015 Sweet Green BackwaterThe bite was slow on the Mile Roads so we moved down toward the Detroit River and found smallmouth bass cruising around everywhere that there was sand, rock and shallow water. Normally they chase down baits that are moving in the middle of the water column but not on the day we were there. As it turns out, they wanted the bait on the bottom and they wanted Sweet Green LE™. We ended up catching over half of our smallmouth on the 4″ Sweet Green LE™ tube.

The bait has a Formula G3™ back and Canadian Mist Lite™ belly that includes a chartreuse glow showing though the front half of the tube. The green pumpkin top and green glow on the bottom make up the dominant color of the bait. The highlight color and most likely the color trigger for this particular bait is the small purple flake that runs across the top and bottom along the full length of the tube.

Some of the backwater smallmouth were the biggest. Only 18″ but over 4 pounds

05-08-2015 Sweet Green Seawall

This Sweet Green smallmouth was brought up to the boat and the line broke off. Fifteen minutes later it was caught again and now he had two Sweet Green tubes in his mouth

“Visions of Canada glasses and Xtreme Bass Tackle new tubes helped me crush the big girls. Sweet day on the water!”

Not to be outdone, Canadian Pro Bob “Jigger” Mann and Capt. Mike McGrane took Sweet Green LE out a day later and generated action too. This first photo and text came in from Bob:

The next photo came in with a hefty smallmouth held up by Capt. Mike.

Big Smallmouth in Fall on Lake St. Clair

October 13, 2014

Fall is a special time of year to chase smallmouth bass on Lake St. Clair. The bass are schooled up, aggressive and it is the time of year where you have the potential to catch the bass of a lifetime. Reports have been coming in about bigger smallies and tournament weights are up.

One one recent scouting trip we caught several including this 4 lb. 14oz smallmouth on a crankbait and others like this 3 1/2 lb. smallmouth caught on an Xtreme Bass Tackle St. Clair Goby NFT™ drop-shot tube. Both were caught in Canadian waters.

Caught in 8 feet of water on a crankbait this smallie went 4 lbs. 14 oz.

Caught in 8 feet of water on a crankbait this smallie went 4 lbs. 14 oz.

This one was only 3 1/2 lbs but it was in an area with many more smallmouth in 18 feet of water

Canadian Mist & Smallmouth on the Niagara River

September 11, 2014

by Matt Kar, St. Catharines, Ontario

Matt Kar with a Niagara River smallmouth

We were originally fishing the eastern Lake Erie basin but couldn’t seem to find the big ones we were looking for. With upcoming tournaments we figured it was a good day do due some scouting in the river. We didn’t have much luck at the usual spots but I had remembered the rough location of a rock out in the middle of the river. We used our electronics to locate it and never looked back.

We caught 2-3 fish a drift… Basically all depended how long it took you to reel the last one in. Anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 lbs. All in all we caught about 15 fish between 12:00pm-1:30pm in 14-22 feet of water. We only stopped because we had to leave.

Canadian Mist and St. Clair Goby NFT™ tubes rigged on a 3/8oz jig were the ticket!

St. Clair River Channel Smallmouth Range September 2014

September 3, 2014

The biggest pattern for bass in the St. Clair River is depth. Once you dial that in you can run up and down the system and be on or around smallmouth everywhere you stop. In hot summers it is not unusual to hook bass in as deep as 55 feet of water but cool summers you need to make an adjustment.

In the big picture we can make that adjustment as deep or less deep and be pretty close. If you are fishing in competition, a tighter read on the quality of smallmouth at a specific depth can mean everything. What we have here are video cuts of smallmouth seen on a single drift (about 100 yards) in 26 to 33 feet of water. We made a drift before this in 18 to 25 feet where we didn’t see nearly as many. If you look closely at the video you will see one bass that is the biggest.

Another factor in river fishing is the presence of other species. Catching a walleye or a drum is a solid indicator that the smallmouth are nearby.

For more video about fishing on Lake St. Clair and the St. Clair River get the No Secrets on Lake St. Clair DVD™ on the Xtreme Bass Tackle™ website.
