I have never fished that end of the lake but smally fishing on Nipissing is fantastic! I usually find them in 5-8 feet on a rocky/weedy bottom in the afternoon to evening. 4-5" plastic swim baits seem to do the trick, cast or trolled. As well I love Berkley Flicker Shads. If you can find the crystal flash versions stock up. Grind the lips right into the rocks. Walleyes will be around similar areas but in 12-15 feet of water. From looking at the map it looks like you have some more diverse terrain than I do so I'm sure you'll have fun finding the hot spots.

Good luck!

Went for smallies yesterday. North end of Callander Bay is one giant reed line, 3km long in fact and it's loaded with smallies. We had 6 between 7-8pm, all nice size.

I suck at bass and just fished them with a spinning reel. Used a whopper plopper which is considered by many the best topwater lure there is. But don't go topwater if there's any chop at all.

For walleye you'll need to go 20ft or deeper IMO at this time of year. Look at webapp.navionics.com and you'll find tons of sunken islands nearby, check those out.

If you can troll deep just go to the main basin and drag lures off bottom in 30-35ft.

Also check Burford point, they were STACKED all over the place in 20ft+ yesterday.

Good luck

The owner of Sunlit Bay Cottages knows the lake as much as anyone could. Just ask him to point you in the right direction and what to use. Good luck.

All,

Thanks for the help.

I had a decent fishing trip but had a better experience at the camp.
WOW, Met a whole pile of people and was invited to their annual fish fry.
Just unbelievably kind and friendly people there!

Cottage was spotless and reasonably priced. Boat was enough for me and my experience on Nip. Had to cut it short but I hope to return soon. Man I love that Lake! 2 eagles off an island , loons, etc. Great stuff.
