Compact walleye rod perfect for the tighter confines of a one man shelter or dark house. Fast action blank is very versatile handling a variety of spoon weights and swim lures. 6 pound line matches perfectly with this rod.
With winter taking it's sweet time to get here, there is not a lot of ice fishing locally.
Most anglers are taking advantage of this by continuing to fish the Niagara River and Port Dalhousie. It continues to produce Rainbow, Brown and Lake Trout. It has been on fire as of late on live minnows and swimbaits.
There has not been a lot of local fishing as of late due to the weather not cooperating for ice fishing. If you are willing to drive a few hours north, there are a lot more options.
Bay of Quinte has started to see ice in certain areas, but be careful if you don't know the area as conditions can change hourly and not everywhere is safe to walk out on. If you do venture out, jigigng spoons like buck shots and swedish pimples tipped with a minnow are a great way to catch these big walleye.
Further North, Lake Nipissing and other Muskoka lakes are now open for Walleye, Whitefish and Lake Trout are now open season in most ares. New regulations are available if you are not sure.
There has not been much to report the last few weeks due to the wether. We do have 2019 fishing and hunting licenses in if you need.
Fishing opportunities have been a little quieter until the ice fishing gets going. This time of year trout are proabably your best bet at getting into some good action locally.
The mighty Niagara is a great option right now in a boat or from shore for multi species action. It offers Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Lake Trout and even some nice walleye this time of year. You can fish from shore at the Queenstion and Whirlpool area. Anglers lucky enough to still have their boats out have miles of river to explore and catch big fish from.
We have had a few ice reports but the majority of spots are not ready yet. A few anglers were on Lake Couchiching but the ice in most areas is far from ready yet. Hopefully soonn. Below is a picture from Lake Couchiching a week or so ago. The hard water should be upon us soon.
Hopefully next post, it will be filled with ice fishing spots. Merry Christmas everyone
