Head Lake

Recommended Posts

Hi all....taking the family (Wife & 2 boys 8 & 10) out for a days fishing tomorrow. Was thinking of Head Lake out by Norland, but with the weather looking iffy I thought about maybe staying a little closer to home & trying Lake St. John. Does anyone have any info on these lakes? We have been hitting Simcoe a bit this year but am tired of ending up perch fishing. Told the buddies we're going for some real fish tomorrow :thumbsup_anim: Of course if someone is willing to share their Simcoe secrets that's even closer yet. We just can't seem to figure it out. Thanks in advance

I've always found L St. John very predictable and have always done well there. Pretty much a big bowl with weeds around the perimeter of the whole Lake. Pike up to 10 lbs a possibility. Having said that, I would choose Head Lake. Likely less company due to lousy boat launch, great variety of structure to fish and a pretty good shot at a musky, and lots of smallmouth.

I personally would choose Lake St.John. More panfish for the kids. Head lake is ok but really rocky. If you don't know the lake, go very slow.

Hi Guys....ended up hitting St John for a couple hours before the rain got too bad & the wife & kids had enough. Managed a decent bass & a hammer handle pike. Scared up a couple follows & that was about it. The kids are ready to get into some bigger fish now for sure so hopefully I can get them out for some good bass fishing.

 

I would sure love to figure out simcoe a bit. Is the lake usually tough or do we just have aweful luck. It's a very convenient location for us to hit
