Wil’s Five Tip’s For a More Productive and Safe Late Season Perch Bite

1) Accept Climate Change! It’s taken me awhile to accept that in my neck-of-the-woods (Lake Simcoe 40 minutes north of Toronto ON) late season ice is nothing like it used to be and there are no signs this will change anytime soon.

Another Ice Fishing Adventure - Near Gogama Ontario

For the last several years I have been fortunate enough to enjoy a winter fishing vacation at my buddy’s camp in northern Ontario, just south of Gogama. Gerry Heels has a cabin up there with two ski-doos that we use to fish different lakes each day. We usually go up there for a week around New Year’s and try to get in around mid-March as well.

2013/14 Ice Fishing Season Rap-Up

Well, here we are in mid April 2014 and another ice fishing season has come and gone. But my, oh my, what a season it was! For many ... it started earlier than ever and lasted longer than they could have even imagined. My buddy Adam for instance began by walking on 3 inches of solid H2O up in Algonquin Park, fishing splake with some buddies on Nov 29 ... just before all fishing closes there between Dec 1 and last Saturday in April. He enjoyed tremendous success in a back country lake ... as you can see here in the photo bellow.

More Jumbo Perch Thru The Ice

Well yesterday, we enjoyed another fine day on the hardwater chasing yellow perch on Lake Simcoe … undoubtedly one of the finest perch fisheries in all of North America. Today was remarkably similar to last weekend when my son Izaak and I took home about 15 jumbos for about three hours of fishing. Unlike last time though these perch were a little deeper (33-34') and way more finicky.  In fact, if it wasn't for the addition of a bunch of puny little items we brought this time- that we didn't before … we may have walked off the ice empty handed!

Take Advantage of Weather Breaks - Despite the Odds!

Despite one of the most remarkable winters in many decades here in Ontario, there have been several occasions when fishing has been extremely tough. Beautiful thick ice, cold temperatures, plenty of snow cover and a chance to safely access anywhere you like on your favorite lake. Man, you would think the fish would be practically jumping thru your holes. Ah - but with few exceptions, such has not been the case; at least not for many of us hard water fishin fanatics who are quick to admit, "Dang- fishin has been tough!"
