In about 3 weeks I am heading to Gananoque to fish the St. Lawrence for 4 days from a pontoon boat. I'm primarily a fly fisherman and a casual panfish/largemouth bass fisherman so my tackle box is typically geared toward that. I am currently unprepared for fishing a large river for smallmouth, pike, and walleye.
I am set with rods and reels and 10lb line spooled up with a handful of wire leaders for the toothy fellas. But I am not sure what lures and rigs to pick up to have the best fishing experience. If anyone could throw some ideas out I would appreciate it. The more specific the better. I have not shopped for spin lures in a long time so I am way out of the loop. I am heading to a Cabelas near me this weekend to make my final purchases.
In addition, I will have my 10yo son with me who would love to lay into the perch and other panfish. I am assuming worms might be the best solution for him but if I'm wrong I'd love to hear it. Thanks folks! Been looking forward to this trip for a while.
