im pretty sure everything is wide open...maybe a little ice in the very back channels but aside from that she looks pretty ice free. I spoke with the harbor master today on the phone to get my harbor license and he seemed to imply that I would be travelling through the back channels and warned me that they are not currrently fully marked because its so early in the season. If you see me out there give me a wave.

Are you talking about Simcoe or Toronto?

My friend is still ice fishing on Simcoe.  So I wouldn't expect it to be wide open just yet.

The OP asked about whether there was any open water near simcoe for pike...I pointed out that Zone 20 closes Saturday hence, theres a great opportunity to fish for some big pike this weekend.

I mentioned to keep an eye out for me and give me a wave. Its always good to meet other OFCers

humber bay boat launch...ill probably be off the water late morning though, apparently they are calling for 80kmh winds....efff that...unfortuntaely thats probably when the best fishing of the day will be...but 18 foot boats and 80kmh great lakes winds dont mix.

I think he was asking specifically if Lake Simcoe was frozen or if it was open water. I think he wanted to take his dad ice fishing. Thats how I read it
