Eyes on Picton – Getting Ready for the Fall Brawl of Walleye
As the last of the colours leave the trees in Prince Edward County and all over Ontario boats are being winterized for storage, the diehard walleye anglers are just getting ready for the return of Bay of Quinte trophy walleye. The post spawn giants head to the main lake for the summer to feed on alewives and other forage then return to the outer reaches of the bay starting in late October. By the time the first skim of ice forms in Picton Harbor the area becomes thick with some of the largest walleye in North America. Trophy hunters from around the globe converge on Picton and surrounding area for a chance to have their picture with one of these spectacular fish.
