Fishing weed beds for bass and pike St.lawrence River

Weed beds and structure, such as sunken islands or steep drop offs near shoals, these are a great to start fishing on a lake or river that is new to you.These are areas that hold baitfish and pike and bass will stay near this type of cover.
If you are new to an area along the river, the best advice is to move up near other fishermen, Or talk to bait shops about hot fishing spots. They hear all the latest fishing spots from anglers buying minnows and other baits.

You can also purchase depth charts of the river which will show drop offs and structure that might hold fish. Charts can be found in most bait shops. Deep water off drop offs or near weed beds can be productive for pike seeking warmer waters or for bass to hide looking to feed on bait fish.

Across the Thousand Islands bridge to Wellesley Island from Alexandria Bay, anglers will find a number of popular places for northern pike this month.
Eel Bay and Lake of the Isles are two public areas where anglers can go from the boat launch straight to decent fishing conditions. These waters are shallow with a sandy bottom and hold good quantities of perch and sunfish, which lure pike to the areas. fishing books and information
