I'll be in Whalesback Channel starting Monday for 4 days of bass fishing. Has anyone been in the area who could give me a fishing report on the smallies in the area? I may also be doing a bit of walleye jigging during the week as well, but primarily targeting the bass. Not looking for fishing spots, just a general state of the fishing there.
Thanks in advance.

Looks lie I'm playing golf on Tuesday afternoon. Winds in the area are forecasted to be 25mph gusting to 40mph. This kid doesn't play with big waves in a bass boat!!!

Not Sure if you're going to see this before your trip but I just spent 9 days up in the Whalesback channel Musky fishing. When the bite gets too slow I like to switch up to the bass just to feel that tug lol The big water can be a little tricky but i stick close to the islands casting spinnerbaits and crank baits. I always find i have more luck with the bass in the river though, especially on those windy days where you cant get on the big water. I always have success fishing up the bank of the Spanish river doing the same thing, casting at shore and reeling to the boat. Was lucky and actually caught my limit of walleye in the river casting crank baits. So many fishing opportunities up in that area. Tight lines!

This was confusing at first until I realized that there are 2 whalesback channels in Georgian bay. There's one by the Spanish river which I didn't know about. And there's another one down by Cognashene.
