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.

Lake St. Clair – Those Other Fish (Multi-species #2)

August 20, 2014

May 20th, 2010

Andy Nester of Fenton, MI get\’s one that\’s a fish of a lifetime

Last Saturday also brought on a huge influx of those other fish that had no clue we were just fishing for bass.  It’s a good thing too!  Some anglers caught the fish of a lifetime and it just goes to show how diverse a fishery that Lake St. Clair really is.  That wasn’t the only one caught off of that boat Saturday.  A second musky was caught and released and the day had plenty of bass to keep it interesting in between.

Matt Bird has a lifetime of fishing experience behind him and appreciates a quality catch like this

After doing a fair share of pike fishing over the years lifting one out of the water by hand became something I was used to. Still, those toothy critters deserve some respect. It’s kinda like a backlash on a bait casting reel. I’ll make 200 casts then on cast 201 my concentration will lapse for a split second then the next thing you know I’m picking at the mono (or flouro, or braid) to get the loops out of the backlash. Well, picking up a pike or a musky can be the same kind of skill. No matter how many times you do it there isn’t much room for error as you can see in the last picture. In this case it isn’t my thumb but the thumb of one of our intrepid duo above. The last time this happened to me was when I was holding the musky under the gill area and it thrashed. I never lost control of the fish but its teeth grazed my thumb and that’s all it took to cut through the skin.

In spite of the dangers catching these freshwater barracuda is still amazing, but there’s more… Check out the photos from the DK Open on Saturday and you will see a couple more musky and a drum:

Lake St. Clair Bass by Billings and Pierce – Spring 2014

May 17, 2014
Tom with a 5 1/2 lb. Smallmouth

Tom with a 5 1/2 lb. Smallmouth

Tom Billings is rolling with his pattern from last year and this year continues to hunt down big smallies on Lake St. Clair.  This spring cold conditions and east winds have been keeping the bite down but no longer, as we see with Tom’s latest monster smallmouth (5 1/2 pounds) to add to his Lake St. Clair photo gallery.  Boating a nice smallmouth like this comes down to good seasonal timing, excellent spot selection, skill and picking the right bait like the Xtreme Bass Tackle St. Clair Crayfish tube that you see in the photo.

(To see the biggest St. Clair smallmouth caught on Xtreme Bass Tackle baits in 2013 by Tom Billings (6.9 lbs) click on this link and go to timeline 1:40 on the video)

Steve Pierce with his hands full

Not to be outdone, Tom’s partner Steve Pierce had no problems boating some sweet bass of his own.

With a catch rate around 60 to 70 bass today, Tom and his friend Steve Pierce found it to be worth the trip from Chesterton, Indiana.  It wasn’t just bass either.  It was a respectable multi-species day as well.  The following photos tell the rest of the story:

It looks like the slow period is over and the hot bite is on.  Come on over to Lake St. Clair…the water is fine!
