Spawning smallmouth bass in Montreal area

After catching a nice bass in the St. Lawrence River the previous day, we decided on a last minute/ spur of the moment ½ day trip to the Outaouais / Ottawa River as I figured the bass should be on their way in to spawn. We used 4 inch shiners with pike rigs under bobbers for this one. As I know my spot, we used the bobber to drift the bait over the intended "strike zone" with deadly results. Within 20 minutes I caught 2 bass in the 3.5 LB range. The days ended with 3 more bass in the 2 - 2.5 LB range, all on the same rig, using the same bait, over the same spot. All fish were live released as the season on the River is closed until mid June. Pictures from the trip should be in the picture gallery shortly.
