SIMCOE ICE?????????

Recommended Posts

A friend had invited me to go ice fishing on Simcoe last summer.....

 

We picked January 27th for kicks!

 

Well..... looks like we did not see this coming.

 

Any projections of when the ice will be safe? :unsure::dunno:

To-Day at the end of the Gilford Looking south it is ice as far as you can see!!!

 

Looking to Crates there is about 200'-300' of ice then open water.

 

Looking to the North there is ice out past Kon Tiki's Red and Green buoy. Then all open water.

 

Right now -13C in Gilford and no wind and light snow.

 

If the temps stay down and no wind we could be Perch fishing by the End of Jan.

The traditional time for me when Jacksons Point is a parking lot for a few days.

 

(Or the first van from Scarborough goes thru...)

Cook's Bay is completely frozen over now, and Kempefelt Bay froze over last night. The ice is still not safe though. If this cold keeps up, you'll probably be okay to fish on the 27th. But please check with hut operators and bait shops before venturing out. Hopefully the ice will be good!
