Fishing Duncan Bay

Post by Gatway2001 »

Anyone have any luck fishing in Duncan Bay, I will have a boat to get to places inside the bay. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks

Brother had a nice northern strike on the back side of the island (we saw it). Have also seen large pike (20+ lbs) come out of there, presumably from the back of the bay, but they weren't giving up details. I've only casually fished Duncan a couple times while paddling through.

We fished the bay near the CG at the back for Northern and did very well. I spoke to some fisherman who trolled both sides of the "narrows" where the CG is and did well in the Spring and Fall for Lake Trout.
