Sharbot Lake Bass Fishing


Tumblehome Lodge is a family owned housekeeping fishing lodge featuring great hospitality and a friendy staff. They are located on Crotch Lake. The lake is 1.5 hours' drive west of Ottawa and 1.5 hours north of Kingston and Belleville. The closest towns are Sharbot Lake and Clarendon. Crotch Lake, without a doubt, is the very best bass fishing lake in Eastern Ontario. It's a huge lake with a diverse structure. Rocky shorelines and points are inundated with Smallmouth Bass. The back bays, narrows and shallow satellite lakes are stuffed with Largemouth Bass. The stars of the show are several smaller lakes that are attached to Crotch Lake. You can only get into when the water is high in the spring and early summer. Both lakes are stuffed with Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass. Guests can expect to catch 30 to 50 Smallmouth Bass per day, with quite a few over 3 pounds and a couple in the 4 to 5 pound range. There are 6 and 7 pound bass in the lake. The Largemouth Bass population is a little lower but still in great numbers. Largemouth Bass are common in the 2 to 3 pound range but there have been 8-pounders caught and released. The lodge has clean Housekeeping Plan cottages and smaller cabins. They have nice fishing boats for rent and also have outstanding fishing for Walleye and Northern Pike. There is a Professional fishing guide working out of the lodge.
