A few Ice Fishing Questions

Recommended Posts

I got a pass to go out fishing on Saturday morning.

From what I have recently read, oro is not yet safe. Is this true or will it be by saturday? Is BBP or Bear Point at all solid?

 

Thirdly, I looked at the mnr regs but can't seem to find the answer. What is the max number of hooks I can run from one line 4 or 5? The reason I ask is that if I am going perch fishing I want to try this new sabiki rig I recently got from the states.

 

thanks

Hey Cudz

 

I was just looking at the regs the other day about the same question and found this:

 

 

"A fishing line must not have more than four hooks attached. A hook includes a single-pointed or multiple-pointed hook on a common shaft but does not include a snagger or spring gaff. The number of hooks includes any single-pointed or multiple-pointed hooks that are part of a lure."

 

http://www.mnr.gov.o...L02_165347.html

 

so I guess that the answer is 4 in total

 

I dont know anything about ice conditions other than at Virginia Beach, which had plenty of ice last weekend, so I imagine by now that it is really safe out there, last weekend there were people crazy enough to be driving their cars around out there! wallbash.gif

I do recall somewhere that a baited treble hook counts as more than one hook. However, you should be okay with the single hooked sabiki rigs as long as you don't exceed the 4 hook limit.

    • carp fishing kawartha lakes/London area.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • Fishing the Yukon June 2019

      We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new. My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week. We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots
