Located 40 miles north of Toronto, Lake Simcoe can offer you a genuinely unique ice fishing experience. Besides being home to some of Canada’s largest yellow perch, it holds plenty of crappie, pike, lake trout, and whitefish.
Walleye are native to North America and can be found from the Arctic down to the Mississippi river basin. They inhabit waters across the mid-eastern and central parts of the US and Canada.
Walleye fishing in clear water works best in poorer light conditions and close to underwater structures. Purple, silver, chrome, or white crankbaits, spinner rigs, and jigs are your top picks for this kind of fishing.
As there is low visibility in muddy water conditions, you should use lures that make noise and produce a lot of vibrations. When it comes to lure colors, chartreuse, orange, and purple have proven highly effective in catching murky water walleye.
Pike fishing is a lot of fun, and catching one of those huge predators is as thrilling as it can get. To land your trophy pike successfully, you will need both a robust and a big enough landing net.
