Welcome to my Focus on Fishing website. Focus on Fishing is part of amBASSador Angling Services, a small company I started in 1986. It encompasses all my freelance outdoor writing, photography, fishing courses, seminars, tournament fishing, guiding excursions, consulting, product field testing, corporate fishing events and of late my Hooked on Fishing video clips. Look for regularly updated articles and fishing information that will help you catch more fish and hopefully entertain you at the same time. Thanks for visiting and I hope you cast a line here often.

Chasing Bass Rules but Catching an Unexpected Channel Cat for Dinner isn't all bad Either!

Once bass season rolls around here in southern Ontario (3rd or 4th Saturday in June depending on the area) there usually aren’t too many occasions when I go out and willingly target another species. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate or enjoy fishing for trout, big pike, muskie or even panfish – but day in and day out until bass closes at the end of November, I’d just as soon fish the best- and in my mind bass are it baby!

Jerkbaits

Jerkbaits Rule for Ontario’s Waters

For many years ... actually decades now, I have been a big fan of jerkbaits. From the start of bass season until it closes, I will always have at least one tied on and ready to go. Without doubt, my favorite is the Rapala X-Rap as it casts like a bullet and can suspend a couple of meters below the surface if you so desire.  

Wegman to attempt his 2nd 4km Sun City Charity Swim August 9th

For Immediate Release: August 2nd, 2014

Orillia Ontario: Wil Wegman of Bradford Ontario, might be better known for catching fish than swimming with them but it’s exactly the latter that he will be doing once again this Saturday August 9h in the fish-filled waters of Orillia’s Lake Couchiching. “I’ll be swimming in my second Sun City Swim event across ‘Cooch’ and I’m really excited about it. Last year it took me 1 hour 35.5 minutes (placing 17th) and I hope to try and better that time,” said Wegman.  One of the factors that will definitely influence times however ... is wind; and Cooch is known for its rough water.

Killarney Provincial Park Bass Opener 2014

June 21, 2014 marked the date for the first ever early bass season around Sudbury ON  (FMZ 10)  a full seven days before the traditional 4th Saturday in June opener.  Typically thought of as smallmouth bass country much more so than largemouth, I was pleasantly surprised when a friend of mine told me about a lake up in Killarney with some outstanding largemouth opportunities. So, early Friday morning, my son Izaak and I headed north for the four hour drive. Upon arrival we loaded all of our food, camping and fishing gear into his canoe … and paddled off to our destination lake for the weekend.
