Well that was fun

Recommended Posts

Finally got on the bay this morning. To my surprise,we had 5-6 " of solid black ice. Managed a bunch of herring and a whitie. Lost one near the hole. Fished with a bunch of buddies.

I was working in Barrie today.   I noticed that the huts all seemed to be on the south side of the bay.   Is that because the ice is safer; or, because the fishing is better there?  I am hoping to get out on the bay after work a few times.  I am working on the north side of the bay.

Hey John

It,s the best ice in the bay right now as it,s been solid up for a week. The fishing is ok. It,s my first ice spot til other areas firm up. It made another 1.5 " over night, -18 at 6am this morning when I was all set up.  I was sitting in the same area as yesterday and had 7" this morning.  It,s not the same all over. Knowing the bay and it,s habits is a big plus.

 

Another nice thing about this spot is parents can take their kids out . Not a long walk and can catch perch,herring ,smelt and white fish.

Hi Bro, that's great your son has it, hope he has the luck I had with it. Wish now I should have kept it. That Clam Scout I bought is a little small for 3 holes, one for trans, 2 to fish and with heater, it's tight.

Seeing you guys have ice, I may have to make the trek up to Simcoe. I don't think we'll get safe ice for the harbor here and Long Point is going to be iffy.

Love to do the Whitie thing one day. All I need to see now is seeing you with a couple flopping around your feet:D:good:will just get me craving.:wallbash::thumbsup_anim:

Just had to share...

 

 

Had a permanent hut for years on Simcoe and you wouldn't believe the stuff that happened to my hut, your joke was one of them.

Little to say I had to move it, wife was pretty disgusted.:wallbash::D

what a beauty weekend it was, not a cloud in the sky and crisp -20 mornings and dead calm -10 sunny afternoons. I swear to god it feels 100 times warmer when its -10 sunny and calm then when its 0 and cloudy. My buddy couldnt help falling asleep either, those sunny afternoons called for a nap.

I even got a sunburn, and met a local who directed me the way of a bush trail that I was not aware of that allows me to fish in one of my favourite fishing grounds.

Lots of people were concerned about this ice season, i think we are just getting started on a long hardwater season. Time will tell!

Thanks, the north side will probably be safe by the time I can get out.
