Ice fishing is a fantastic outdoor family. – kids of all ages enjoy the feeling of a fish tugging on their line. Experience the thrill of fishing on beautiful southern Georgian Bay. With the Niagara Escarpment as your backdrop, a guided fishing excursion on Georgian Bay makes for an experience you won’t forget. Georgian Bay species include bass, catfish, pike, salmon, trout, walleye, sturgeon and tiger muskie.
When the salmon and trout start to stack up or down the river mouth and it’s too windy and wavy to head out on the boat, shore fishing is a great alternative.
Once the open water turns to ice, Lake Simcoe comes alive with more anglers than it sees all three other seasons combined. With several ice hut operators around Ontario’s 6th largest inland lake it makes it easy for families and others without a lot of ice fishing experience to try this great winter sport.
