Ottawa River Dawg Pound- By Gord Pyzer

Like most anglers, I suspect, I wept a week ago when I had the big boat winterized and tucked snugly into bed. Since then I have been relying on my smaller tiller handled V-hull to get the bulk of the yeoman's work completed.

 

But, sadly, I think this past weekend was the last trip of the season for the young metal Miss, too.

 

But that doesn't mean the open water fishing season is over by any stretch of the imagination. Far from it. In fact, if you've been yearning to catch the biggest fish of your life -- possibly even a new world record -- now is the time to take a serious look at the Ottawa River in the Prescott-Russell region of Southeastern Ontario and to book a guided fishing trip with muskie expert John Anderson.

 

It is what I've done the past two years now and it has been so much fun, from so many different perspectives and for so many reasons.

First, when you hire a guide like Anderson, who owns the Ottawa River Musky Factory, you don't need to worry about any of the planning, logistics or details. You just show up and start casting on all of the high percentage spots in one of the world's most fabled muskie waters.

 

And because I flew to Ottawa and didn't want to tote along a ton of tackle, John let me use his vast array of top quality Shimano and Loomis rods and reels and all of his lures.

 

Talk about being pampered.

Funny thing, though, while we must have had over a thousand different muskie baits in the boat, two pails lined with soft plastic Bulldawgs occupied the top spot of honour. It is a late autumn presentation detail that Anderson has perfected over a lifetime spent on the river.

 

"Bulldawg-style muskie baits started the soft plastic revolution," Anderson told me, as I snapped one of the lures onto my leader and began heaving it to the edge of a weedbed, on a spot he fondly calls Dolly's. It is named in recognition of the voluptuous country and western singer, Dolly Parton and the mammoth muskies the spot has produced for him and his guests.

 

"The lure style works because the fish can’t tell that it is not real. The twister tail started fooling bass, walleyes and other fish in the 1970s and it was only natural that the same motion would work for muskies. The Bulldawg turned the original twister tail into a musky-sized version of the same bait and presto, it was an instant success."
